From It's Going Down

No Borders Media presents another episode of their news roundup featuring Cindy Milstein and someone from It’s Going Down.

This is an extended (90 mins) No Borders Media news roundup, recorded a few days after the US mid-term elections on November 6, 2018. Our panelists in this episode are Cindy Milstein, editor of Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief, Andrew of It’s Going Down, and Jaggi Singh, of No Borders Media.

Together, Cindy, Andrew and Jaggi nerd out on US politics from an anarchist perspective. We analyze the midterms, critique voting as harm reduction,and explore political trends of interest to people organizing for liberation.

Cindy, who recently wrote the article, Our Grief Is a Starting Point in the Fight Against Fascism, explores the weight of despair in this Trumpian moment, but also inspiring examples of solidarity and mutual aid. Andrew breaks down how Fox News host Tucker Carlson actively supports and enables white nationalism And Jaggi makes the case, again, against liberal civility and for radical authenticity, in the struggle against the far-right.

Our Grief Is a Starting Point in the Fight Against Fascism -- wow. This could be a line from some lame right-wing failed lampoon of liberal protester self-absorption and sanctimoniousness.

Or maybe there's some basic emotional responses that you no longer identify with because you're fucked in the head?

No, actually its that I'm not under the illusion that the world revolves around me and my precious feelings.

And are you aware that you're deep in to alt-right la la land with this kind of rhetoric?

"Libtard snowflakes have feelings" etc...

One of my favorites - nicely done!

I mean … neither of us bothered to float a serious argument here. It started with jack-shit and I smeared some fuck-you-shut-up on there. I REGRET NOTHING.

The feelings of the upper middle class liberal always come first.

Uppie middle class liberals are notorious for their lack of feelings, actually. Instead, all they got is resentment... or "ressentiment" as they like to call it. I've always struggled finding any true feeling, even emotion, in any of them. These are classic sociopaths... only they're not into murders or other forms of violence, at least not until they take some position of power.

Actually they represent a large slice of the bleeding heart SJW brigade. Sure, they maintain a separate privileged lifestyle with distinct rules on engagement within a gentrified bubble of security which makes them appear to be detached emotionally from the plight of the hoi polloi, but you obviously haven't seen them gushing and pouring out torrents of tears over a pet cat or pekinese or a treasured painting by Cezanne, or expensive golf club. They are removed from the bitter ressentiment which plagues the psyches of the revolutionary proletariat.

I love the a-historical pious jazz about "colonialism" these days. Where's the powder for my flintlock and my knee breeches?
