Defining the internal enemies of the USA, in their own words


I note with considerable interest that an organization calling itself "It's Going Down" has set up a Web site.  On the principle of "Know your enemy", I thought it might be worth mentioning it here for my readers.

The organization describes itself as follows:

Who we are:

It’s Going Down is a digital community center from anarchist, anti-fascist, autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements. Our mission is to provide a resilient platform to publicize and promote revolutionary theory and action.

What we do:

We publish original content alongside anonymous submissions as well as repost articles from websites which share our perspectives.

We maintain active Twitter, Instagram and Facebook social media accounts, in addition we publish a yearly magazine.

The organization's library contains various articles and links. They're fascinating, if you can call watching such a diabolical train-wreck of radical-liberal and progressive ideas 'fascinating'.  Here are a few examples.  If you want to know more, links are provided at the source, although I don't advise poisoning your mind with such trash.

Burn Down the American Plantation

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement is a political movement dedicated to freeing people from bondage and building resistance in the United States. We situate our political movement in the context of the abolitionist struggle against slavery and continue in the tradition, from Nat Turner to the Black Liberation Movement. We believe the Civil War was never resolved and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. Lastly, as revolutionary anarchists, the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, the perpetrators of oppression. The revolutionary movement in the US today is at a cross roads, as fascist movements are expanding, and the state becomes increasingly authoritarian. The Rojava Revolution, in northern Syria, provides us with a model for revolution today with its foundation in communal and council based political organization and militant defense.

Class Struggle and the Origins of Racial Slavery: The Invention of the White Race

“Allen, however, was not an academic; he was a class conscious, anti-white-supremacist, working class intellectual and activist, who had researched and written on the historical development of the “white race” for twenty-five years, and he was not comfortable with the proposition that Frederickson described. As he“ explained in his internet-published “Summary of the Argument of The Invention of the White Race” — viewing “race as a social and cultural construction” has value in “objectifying ‘whiteness,’ as a historical rather than a biological category,” but it is “an insufficient basis for refutation of white-supremacist apologetics.” The apologetics, or arguments, that Allen had in mind were from those who would argue that such social constructs are somehow natural or genetically determined. He stressed that “the logic of ‘race as a social construct’ must be tightened and the focus sharpened” and “the ‘white race’ must be understood, not simply as a social construct (rather than a genetic phenomenon), but as a ruling class social control.

Toward the Queerest Insurrection

Queer involves our sexuality and our gender, but so much more. It is our desire and fantasies and more still. Queer is the cohesion of everything in conflict with the heterosexual capitalist world. Queer is a total rejection of the regime of the Normal.

“Queer is not merely another identity that can be tacked onto a list of neat social categories, nor the quantitative sum of our identities. Rather, it is the qualitative position of opposition to presentations of stability – an identity that problematizes the manageable limits of identity. Queer is a territory of tension, defined against the dominant narrative of white-hetero-monogamous patriarchy, but also by an affinity with all who are marginalized, otherized and oppressed.”

There are many more entries at the link.  They're not worth reading unless you have to, but if you want to know what the enemies of the US Constitution and our republic are saying and planning, this is a good place to start.


*Sigh*

Word salad.

Long on rhetoric. I wonder if they even know what the words mean, or what the world will be like if their desires come to pass.

What a load of verbose garbage, based on non-existent so-called "social constructs", whatever they might be.
It's total rubbish from start to finish, just dressed up to sound semi-educated.

Rolf said...

They are anti-colonialist, yet actively support colonizing white-majority nations with non-white, non-assimilating, non-christian, low-productivity hordes.

They claim everything is a social construct, but only THEIR social constructs are valid and good, even though there is no logic, principles, or consistency to their "constructs."

Hmmmmm.... Looks like useful idiots to me.

Good to know the 'enemy' as it were...

As today's events show, there's a great deal of insanity at both ends of the spectrum.

I'd hate to give up my guns, but it's days like this that make me wonder if we've already lost America.

How close is this, Peter, to the Africa you left behind? How close are we?

Peter said...

@Antibubba: I don't know. Africa was never that crazy!

"Queer is a total rejection of the regime of the Normal."

Somebody really needs to take them aside and explain to them how badly that usually works out. I'm what Sarah Hoyt calls an Odd. I sympathize with the little idiots. Not being part of the recognized spectrum is wearing. And I went to a private high school and sidestepped a lot of the jock-and-cheerleader worship that I understand is normal. But at some point you need to realize that arguing with gravity is something to be done selectively, because doing it all the time exhausts you and gets you nowhere.

Sweethearts? Can we talk? Odd to Queer? Look; you amount to maybe 4% of the population. The idea that you are 10% is based on a bullshit study done when 'normal' people answered questions about their sexuality with a punch in the snoot. As 4% you are, say, four times a numerous as genuine Outlaw Bikers (who claim 1%), and about a third as ubiquitous as African Americans. You ain't gonna be a political force...unless somebody is USING YOU.

Take a careful look around. The Political Left is scrabbling to hold onto power. They aren't going to keep it forever (they're too goddamned bossy) and when they go dow they are going to drag a lot of their pets down with them. If, in the meantime, you have pissed on everyone else's Cornflakes, well life is likely to get REALLY ugly.

Calm the fuck down. It will pay you in the long run.

It's all over the news here in the UK about the extreme right wing march. Odd it's always extreme right wing for anyone who is not on the left but I have never heard any one being called extreme left wing it does not matter what they do. It's never extreme left wing all ways peaceful marchers, I've heard this said on the news when in the film shown on the news the 'peaceful marchers' are setting cars on fire.

I take it they're anti-America, but they like it here, and won't leave.

"We have met the enemy, and he is us"

The ideology of the Left is hopelessly tangled up in consensus and inclusion. The White Supremicists and Nazis, OTOH, are straightforward and clear. It isn't hard to see who is more dangerous.
