Summary: Donald Trump and those who follow him have shown certain specific traits of a fascist movement. Does that make Trump or the Trumpets into fascists? What is fascism? How is it counterposed to bourgeois democracy? Is there likely to be a fascist movement in the U.S.A.? How do we fight fascism?
From Love and Rage (a Utica, NY Media Collective) by Derek Scarlino
In a recent article for The Hitch titled Libertarians and Anarchists: Delusion at the Political Extremes, site co-founder and senior contributor Josh Turner attempted a dissection of the respective ideologies aimed at proving his hypothesis that in spite of appearances, the horseshoe theory of political science brings these models closer together than adherents might otherwise allege. Turner certainly argues his case convincingly, but in the process sidesteps that aforementioned history dating back well over a century and instead takes easy aim at common misperceptions of anarchism.
Yesterday, an antifascist and anarchist from The Hague received another area-ban imposed upon them, five days after the expiration of the previous area-ban for several Hague anarchists.
This time, the area-ban applies to the center of The Hague and the Haagse Hout neighborhood during the coming Pegida demonstrations, and is accompanied by the requirement to report to the police station.
[From the first issue of Blasphegme: An anarchist broadsheet on the walls of Paris. It’s been getting pasted up around the city in the past month.
Blasphegme: A neologisme designating a blasphemy delivered in the form of spit (or phlegm) on all religions, whether monotheist or polytheist, whether the religion of the state or of capital, the religion of work or of the ego.
The blasphegme spits in the face of all gods and of all prophets, with no distinction between the various collective delusions that poison us, that keep us in awe of a higher power before which we must kneel.
In response to the repression suffered by anarchist comrades living in the region dominated by the Italian State, by the DIGOS (Division of General Investigations and Special Operations) in the context of “Scripta Manent” operation, we burned down an SUV belonging to the Presidency of the Argentine Nation on September 25, at 1 a.m. at the junction of Marcos Paz and Pedro Lozano St., in the area of Villa Devoto in Buenos Aires.
SCRIPTA MANENT? ACTA NON VERBA!
“Written words remain”? Deeds, not words!
In the face of repression that has struck anarchist comrades in Italy (Op. Scripta Manent), in the face of our enemies -the State and Capital- we still and always think that the best solidarity is attack. They are paying for actions belonging to all anarchists across the world. We want to send them a sign of our proximity with deeds; contrary to others here and elsewhere that are content with a bit of rhetoric on their internet sites.
