youtube playlist link re: alt-right tactics
"The Alt-Right Playbook," by Innuendo Studios.
The topics discussed here are not unique to the alt-right in the so-called United States of America, but that sociopolitical environment is used as the basis for the majority of comparisons to modern politics.
links re: how to identify fascism
http://interglacial.com/pub/text/Umberto_Eco_-_Eternal_Fascism.html - "Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt," by Umberto Eco
https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/umberto-eco-ur-fascism.pdf - Ur-Fascism, by Umberto Eco.
Both of these texts will serve you well. The former more readily than the latter.
introduction post, long
Hey there folks, figure I might as well chuck something out there on public as an intro post.
My name is Alexis, im postfurry stripeyeen weirdo, and I'm bailing from a sinking-ship instance y'all've probably heard of by now after spending a little over two years there.
I was taught to lurk before posting, and I don't want or need mass attention, so you probably won't see anything else on local or federated from me. I'm just here to have a social-media den I trust to keep up on the world through.
If you have any concerns over anything I have posted in the past or anything I post in the future, or over the people I have been or currently am in contact with, please do not hesitate to contact me and/or report it as you see fit. My early internet life was spent on the SomethingAwful forums, back when it was still possible to get free accounts, and then early 4chan before my friends dragged me out of that spiral by the scruff. On top of that, I come from a history of generational abuse on both sides of my family tree. I know my IFF systems are busted and glitchy as hell, all I ask is to be gentle if I step over any lines - I cannot alter my own settings without knowing what needs to be altered, after all.
Glad to be here.

plato: ok hold on let me get out a scroll so i can list them
aristotle: how can i name them unless i know their genders
heraclitus: they're all named dave, done
diogenes: [disqualified for eating the beans]

The Interrupters - Broken World
There's some misheard-lyric transcription errors in these lyrics, sadly, but it's good enough I won't hold that against the video's creator.
long toot, racist kidnapping, state violence
About the temporary kidnapping of the Kenmure Street 2 before it gets lost in the mix:
In the Home Office's own words, the grounds for their operation was *suspected* imigration offenses. They were at the stage of investigating -- their attempt to disappear them suggests their evidence to be extremely flimsy. I doubt we will find out what the evidence was, if it was solid then no doubt the press would have been fully briefed by now.
Was this a single telephone tip-off? Was the tip-off from an aggrieved landlord, rangers fan, etc? Did the anti-raids network just prevent an attempted swatting? We may never know.

Second thing I'd like to observe is what a powerful protest is.
The duty of the filth is to protect power and themselves. They do this by beating people, sometimes beating them to death, and by being seen to do so. The filth rocked up with horses and riot squad. They had the physical material carry out their duty, but failed.
They failed because of the power of the mob* and significant media, legal, and political support. A peaceful legal demonstration would not have been sufficient and never has been.
Powerful, direct, collective action gets the goods as always.

the stuff happening in Palestine rn
Really exhausted by how many times I've seen "it's antisemitic to expect me to have an opinion on this just because I'm jewish, I'm american I have no power". Centering white feelings over palestinian bodies. Disgusting
Yes it is antisemitic that we're expected to be the ones speaking out, but hey guess what we are, and that means our words have power, which means that our silence is violence
Free palestinian, take a stand

If you want to buy from Palestine instead of donating to individual Palestinians here's another link https://www.shoppalestine.org/default.asp
If you're Jewish and stable then give something. People are enacting harm in our name and we have an obligation to give what we can
