  •  he's our resident self-appointed purity policeman (2+ / 0-)

    He once unloaded a full complement of HRs on me because he clicked the link in my sigfile and discovered I publish commie books--and his personal policy is to ban commies on sight.

    Just ignore him like everyone else does.  (shrug)

    •  Too bad, I'm out of donuts, for now... (0+ / 0-)


      This "purity police" meme is pure naked adhominem jive, AS IF consistently bringing subjective oppositionalist hyperbolic bullshit attack, or projecting absolute non-viability of electoral struggle, can be conceived of as "legitimate criticism", or Even acceptable "opinion" within the explicitly stated parameters for discussion here, any more than racist or sexist perspectives should be.

      Trolling is as trolling does.

      if we wanted to be schooled on why purported "leftists" are so convinced that we can't, and mustn't even try to elect moar better Democrats, we would go to their venues.  

      Fuck that noise.

      This is dkos.  If you don't like it, then gtfo.

      As to the "left bashing" charge, I merely asked, in regard to your "Red and Black" publications, whether ANY of them embrace electoral struggle, or whether ALL of them promulgate electoral boycott and splitting, which has long been the traditional anarcho-syndicalist line (of which red and black are the traditional colors).

      The self-implied enemy "left" Flank typically duplicitously refused to respond to that query, heh, choosing instead to just pile on more adhominem jive, obviously hoping to evade being 86'd for so blatantly rejecting the very premise of the venue "on principle".

      I would also point out that the comment thread referred to entailed bitter complaints about my display of IWW's excellent agitational art...calling me a "traitor" for advocating electoral struggle at this time, with "their" images, lol.  

      Long a subscriber, more or less, to the political analysis of anarcho-communism, I nevertheless disagree with the electoral boycott line under the present circumstances.

      For that I have to be a traitor, lol...and yet it's perfectly OK for "lefties' to advance a position that boils down to deliberately trying to hand power over to the Republicans, by spewing ultra-negativity, cynical defeatism and demoralization, deliberately seeking to suppress likely Democratic voter turnout.

      Go figure.  Such contradictions are...suspicious, I think.  

      Anybody, right or "left", who would condemn the whole world to yet another round of increasingly overt fascism is NOT our friend, nor a "comrade".

      The most correct left line at this time is to bring principled solidarity to the Prez and the Party, to crush the Republicans (and Blue Dogs).  

      THEN we can sort out the "moderates", "liberals" and "progressives", democratically, electorally.

      Do I bash "leftists" who bring shit-headed "analysis" that this is "impossible", or "wrong" or even that it would be "better" for the right to prevail, whether they state such perverse, twisted, supposed "analysis" explicitly, or by insinuation?  You bet.

      But it's not because they are "leftists", per's because they are full of shit, whoever the fuck they really are.

      Democracy is the most fundamental revolutionary principle. Information is the ultimate key.
