I hope I’m not triggering some poor delicate white snowflake Nazis by reposting this newspaper headline from May 7, 1945 (May 8 our time, since this is a London newspaper). I mean, wouldn’t want to hurt their delicate little fee-fees, right? Us mean old liberals whipped their butts in 1945, but this is 2017 and we must coddle them today, even giving them access to the President of the United States of America as some of his top advisors, right?

Meanwhile, in New Orleans racists and fucking Nazis whined that nobody, I mean nobody, was gonna take away their participation trophies for losing a war. Wow. Poor triggered snowflakes, all whiny and upset that somebody might take away their participation trophies. Wah!

Hillary Clinton — err, Emmanuel Macron — wins French Presidency over Donald Trump — err, Marine Le Pen.

And not by a little, either. He won with 66% of the popular vote. That’s something that no American President has ever done. The closest is when LBJ whipped Barry Goldwater with 61% of the popular vote in 1964.

Of course, Le Pen is counting this as a victory — she convinced 1/3rd of Frenchmen to vote for, well, a fucking Nazi. (And no, I’m not making that up, before Marine Le Pen gave her party a makeover, it was fond of spiffy brown uniforms and swastikas). And it’s worrisome that 1/3rd of Frenchmen would vote for a fucking Nazi in the first place, even though she was running against some bloodless technocrat who has the charisma of barely-browned toast, basically the Hillary Clinton of France.

Still: The French had the sense to vote for their equivalent of Hillary Clinton rather than vote for a fucking Nazi.

Yeah, I think the French are gonna be insufferably smug towards Americans for the next four years… not only are they doing healthcare better than America, not only do they live longer than Americans and have better cuisine than Americans, but now they can say “nya nya, we voted against our Nazis and you didn’t!”?

Yeah, it sucks to be an American in France right about now…

Just rather overheated — it’s been above 90F here for two days in a row. Even had to plug in the portable air conditioner in my bedroom yesterday to cool it down enough to sleep.

So anywho: America’s largest oil refinery is now 100% owned by Saudi Arabia. MAGA!

Spicey runs away from a press briefing. ¿Apparently scared that the reporters would ask him hard questions about what he’s butt-tweeting on Twitter?

As I keep pointing out, Hillary Clinton didn’t ignore the working class. She had detailed policy proposals to help them. But those policy proposals would have helped the poors and the blahs too, so. Can’t have that, can we? Our working-class white people, if they were underneath a bridge cooking a pigeon on a stick over a hobo stove, would gladly give up their pigeon if it meant that the black person the next bridge over didn’t even have a hobo stove.

This Nazi vs anti-Nazi bullshit is getting ridiculous. How do so many Nazis have so much time to go to strange towns where nobody knows them and hold rallies? Sheesh.

Finally, all this needs is some Truck Nutz and it’s the perfect Trump supporter truck:

Hint: If you have to loudly proclaim that you’re an alpha male… you ain’t one. Just sayin’.

As with Saul Alinsky, once more I learn that I am a follower or advocate of something that I never heard of before right-wingers educated me about what I believe, thanks to their magical psychic mind-reading powers that let them know what I believe better than I do myself. Wow! The things I learn from right wingers! I wonder if they volunteer for the Pentagon to psychically read the mind of Kim Young’un over in Korea with those amazing psychic powers of theirs?!

So anyhow, reading further, “antifa” stands for “Anti-Fascist”. Okay, I’m anti-Fascist. I’m in virulent disagreement with the government policies promulgated by the fascist governments of Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and Portugal in the 1930’s and 1940’s. What sensible human being wouldn’t be? I mean, their militaristic attempt to conquer half the world killed bajillions of people, and their domestic policies, where they exterminated Jews and political opponents by the millions, were horrifying. Who in the world could be pro fascist?!

So then the right wing informs me that “antifa” are the real fascists. Because they’re against right wingers. And the real fascists in Germany, Italy, etc. were left wingers. At which point I come to a full screeching halt and say, “Wha?!”.

Look. Historians have a way of classifying political organizations as left wing, right wing, or centrist.

Left wing: Believes in equality for women and religious and ethnic minorities, progressive taxation, government regulation of business, labor unions, more money spent on social programs, less money spent on the military.

Right wing: Does not believe in equality for women, believes the religious and ethnic majority should have more rights than the minorities, against progressive taxation, believes that industrialists should rule the government rather than vice-versa, labor unions should be banned, and we should spend more money on the military and less on social programs.

Note that I don’t say anything about “democracy” or “free speech” in there. Both left wing and right wing political groups have their extremists who care nothing for democracy or free speech. I don’t mention anything about anti-Communist there either — there have been left wing anti-Communist parties just as there have been right wing anti-Communist parties. There’s a lot of other commonality between the most extreme left and right wing groups I could come up with too if I tried. But the above is how historians, in general, classify political parties. And by those classifications, the fascist parties in Italy and Germany were decidedly right wing — they were against equal rights for minorities, against equality of women, against social programs, for greatly increased military spending, and so forth.

So back to “antifa”. Who the heck are they, again? So I go do some research and find that they appear to be anarchists of the American variety. Some are anarcho-Communists, some are anarcho-syndicalists. Their beliefs would be “left wing” by the definition historians use above in that they’re pro equality, pro labor, and against military spending. They’ve adopted or adapted “black bloc” tactics from other anarchist groups. And they’re assholes.

The problem is, they’re the only assholes actually fighting fascists on the streets.

Why that is a problem basically comes down to the reality that right wingers have otherwise had a monopoly on political violence. Their troll armies swiftly pollute the comments section of any article that mentions the right wing in a disparaging way with pro-Nazi anti-leftist drivel. They relentlessly “dox” people and harass them at home. They threaten people with bodily harm, and, occasionally, follow through. Hell, a bunch of right-wingers even aimed guns at police officers and BLM employees who were just doing their job as ordered by a court, and basically ran the cops out of town there at Bundyville Nevada. And the instances of violence are increasing, as the recent shooting of a left-wing protester in Seattle shows.

And when the right wingers have a monopoly on political violence, we all know where that ends. The liberal left in Germany in the 1920’s, as with the liberal left in today’s United States, instead chose a legalistic strategy of filing lawsuits and running for office, and their leaders were eventually killed by the blackshirts or brownshirts, rendering them harmless. Then the fascists just rolled into office. They’d won. There weren’t enough of the anarchists and Communists to stop the blackshirts and brownshirt, and the anarchists and Communists were overwhelmed by the fasicsts. The facists had killed all the opposition that could have prevented their takeover, and the police, just as at Bundyville, weren’t willing to confront them.

The biggest party in Weimar Germany was the SPD, the Social Democrat Party. They were a somewhat socialist left wing party, the largest left wing party, the largest party period. They, too, engaged in a campaign to demonize their version of the “antifa”, eventually outlawing the Roter Frontkämpferbund in 1929, just as our own largest left wing party is engaged in a campaign to demonize our own version of the antifa and, presumably, outlaw them (though how you outlaw an anarchist organization that explicitly has no officers, no treasury, no assets, no organizational structure, somewhat eludes me, but then again this is a government that outlawed a weed, so). And all of the SPD’s top leadership ended up being killed by the SA brownshirts, or ended up arrested and sent to Hitler’s concentration camps.

Maybe suppressing their antifa hadn’t been so smart, after all.

Just sayin’.

The number of alt-right morons quoting Mein Kampf who aren’t even aware they’re quoting Mein Kampf is staggering.

New rule: If all your statements could be taken out of Mein Kampf, you’re not alt-scooby-doo or whatever — you’re a Nazi.

Alt-right guys, the copyright on Mein Kampf is expired, and the book is online. You might want to check your public statements against Mein Kampf before making them, if you want to *not* be called a Nazi. Just sayin’.

Being a Nazi isn’t about having swastika armbands and cool brown shirts. It’s about believing the same things as the Nazis did.

So, what did the Nazis believe? Let’s read Mein Kampf (the Murphy Edition, which is generally held to be the best of the admittedly rather problematic translations into English), and see what we get!

  1. White people are the master race, and of white people, pure Aryan (Germanic) people are the most superior of all because Aryan people build a culture rather than cower in selfishness. (Mein Kampf, all over)
  2. The Aryan race must not feel guilty about what it does to the inferior peoples, who are weeds that must be occasionally pulled up (i.e., killed). (Mein Kampf, page 36)
  3. Any mixing of the Aryan race with the inferior peoples results in the degeneration of the people. (Mein Kampf, Page 162)
  4. Jews are negroid parasites who have used the generosity of the Aryan people to enter our nation and control our finances, our literature, our commerce, even vital government bodies of our nation, and are parasites upon the Aryan people (Mein Kampf, all over, starting from page 16). Thus under #2 they are weeds that must be pulled up as the nation naturally dislikes blood-sucking tyranny (Mein Kampf, Page 242)
  5. A woman’s role is to submit to the strong man. (Mein Kampf, Page 45)
  6. Inferior peoples must be prevented from breeding in order to strengthen the master race (Nuremberg Laws, which enforced mandatory sterilization of “undesirables”).
  7. All Communists or “minority” socialists (i.e., anarcho or syndicalist socialism) are traitors. (Mein Kampf, Page 518)
  8. Socialism (“Social democracy”) is evil and built upon lies. (Mein Kampf, Page 56).
  9. Anything you read in the mainstream press is fake news, lies spread by the Jews. (Mein Kampf, Page 275).

So, do you believe white people are best, mixing of races is wrong, it’s okay to be harsh with inferior people, Jews are evil parasites, a woman’s role is to submit to a strong man, and all socialists are traitors? Congratulations, you’re a Nazi! Bonus points if you believe in exterminating inferior peoples…

Who is Nathan Damigo? He is a neo-Nazi. He is a twice-convicted criminal who spent 5 years imprisoned for armed robbery. As a result of his armed robbery conviction, he was expelled from the Marines with a dishonorable discharge, though activism from his mother got that reversed to a less-than-honorable discharge so that he could access VA mental health benefits for his PTSD. He wears a “fashi” haircut — long on top, short on sides. He participated in a pro-Trump rally in Berkeley on April 15th along with a bunch of his homeboys dressed in SS-like uniforms with black helmets, and they broke through police lines and attacked anti-fascism protestors who cat-called them and maybe threw bottles at them.

Oh, and he hits women:

Oh, here is what she looks like afterwards, as she demonstrates what she saw as Damigo charged at her:

I watched the video. The girl is standing looking around. She sees a pile-on where a bunch of fascists are kicking and punching one of her group. She takes a tentative step in that direction. Nathan Damigo comes flying in from the right, arm cocked back, and she puts her hands up (empty hands, as you can see from the photos, one of which is from a different viewpoint than the video). She takes a half step towards Damigo to turn square to Damigo, perhaps setting herself to take the punch. He punches her. The punch slides across her face as she ducks back, pushing off against Damigo with her hands. She goes flying backwards, and falls backwards with her shoulder sliding down a wall. Damigo keeps charging, but then sees she’s down, and then Damigo turns and joins the pile-up kicking another protester.

So, how do the Nazis justify one of their leaders punching a woman? 1) She was charging him. (The video shows that she took a half step in his direction as she turned to square up to him after spotting her, but he was charging her, not the other way around, should I believe the Nazis, or my lying eyes?). 2) She was attacking him with a bottle. (You have two very good photos above. Do you see a bottle in her hands?). 3) She was asking for it.

Of course, #3, “she was asking for it”, the favorite of wife-beaters everywhere, is the most popular. Read the comments on the video. Make sure you have a bucket nearby first, the misogyny as all these Nazis justify a grown man hitting a 90 pound girl will make you puke.

Look: I’m old fashioned. I admit it. I grew up in a time and place where we were taught that a man who hit a woman was lower than a dung beetle’s knees. When I was a young man, a friend of mine punched his wife in the nose. Now, his soon-to-be-ex wife wasn’t a nice person, frankly she was a conniving bitch who’d basically cornered him into marriage in the first place, but that’s just wrong, smacking a woman around, regardless of the reason. I haven’t spoken to him for 30 years, and I never will. Because someone who would smack a woman around is lower than dirt and more worthless than the crap that comes out of the butthole of my cat, and I ain’t gonna associate with people like that. It doesn’t matter what the woman did. Hitting a woman ain’t something a man does, it’s something that a piece of walking shit does. That’s how I was raised, and I ain’t ashamed of it.

I got the same to say about anybody else excusing violence towards women. Regardless of whatever excuses you come up with, it’s just plain wrong for a man to smack around a woman. And if you are that kind of person that comes up with excuses for violence against women, you’re lower than dirt and more worthless than the crap that comes out of the butthole of my cat, and I’ll damn well tell you that before cutting you out of my life forever, because. You. Are. Scum. If you do crap like that.

I’m chugging through a bunch of Facebook profiles right now, blocking Nazis who advocate or excuse hitting women. What’s interesting is how many of these profiles have American flags waving in them, as if it’s ultra-American to hit women. Then there’s the ones with lots of guns and dead animals, sometimes dead animals being cradled by their grinning progeny. I guess hitting women and glorifying killing animals for any reason other than meat go hand in hand too. Then there’s the ones whose “Friends” list is all police officer badges. Yeah, police officers are well known to be overrepresented in the wife beater ranks, so no surprise there. And finally, the manly men posing with military gear. I guess beating a woman makes you a real man where being a soldier wasn’t enough to do so. Huh. How does that work, anyhow?

Nazis. Wife beaters. Probably child abusers, if they use this same “logic” about their children. Bah. Scum, all of them.
