Just to poke the hornet’s nest with a stick, I posted that Golden Dawn “anti-imperiaist” statement on Moon of Alabama–one of the higher profile Red-Brown websites. Look at the homophobia and the barely suppressed admiration for fascism. In the next couple of days I plan to blog about the rebirth of National Bolshevism (in some sense it never went away.)

Maybe if Fake Left did something more than suck dudes’ cocks and receive them in his arse, and actually spent time outside doing something besides mincing and sashaying between the home front door and the open Bentley door Jeeves holds open for them, they might not have completely lost the working class to right-wing groups such as Golden Dawn and the National Front.

The leader of Golden Dawn recommended killing bankers. This connects with down and out workers and the unemployed, and  of course it also explains why left wing pussies are so HORRIFIED by Golden Dawn. It’s because Golden Dawn and the National Front actually speak in terms of protecting workers’ jobs and committing violence against the Wall Street criminals.

Oh, the horror. Can you even imagine a cocksucking buttfucking gay married leftist EVER suggesting that working class people should kill bankers? That day will never happen. Far better to be outraged by the workers than try to understand their anger. This is why the left is so pathetic, useless, and ineffective, and why it always will be.

  1. “The leader of Golden Dawn recommended killing bankers. This connects with down and out workers and the unemployed, and of course it also explains why left wing pussies are so HORRIFIED by Golden Dawn.”

    Golden Dawn recommends killing bankers, but participants have actually killed leftists and immigrants. So, am I too assume that the commenter believes that this connects with the down and out workers and the unemployed even more?

    “Further projections and speculations are made on the efforts to nationalize the oligarchy and possibilities of the working class of Novorossiya and Malorossiya to effect gains through a combination class struggle and national struggle.”

    Enjoy!

  3. Fascists have no ideas. They say things exclusively for effect and will say anything. Who in his right mind cares what they think? What? Richard Estes? Perhaps, but I was speaking of those who possess mentality.

  4. The pro-Moscow leftists hold the same position as a lot of small to medium sized fascist groups.

    Louis is on the anti-Moscow side along with the US State Department, Brussels and The Militant (http://themilitant.com/2014/7818/781802.html) which he incidentally just denounced a few posts back for taking the wrong position on Equitorial Guinea.

    The only answer for working people and ultimately humanity is not a struggle against either Kiev or Moscow but a struggle against the global capitalist system that gives rise to this kind of geo-politics and leaves workers trapped in the middle.

    My 2 cents.

  5. Sylvester, you really need to familiarize yourself with the Ukrainian left. My views coincide with the Autonomist Workers Union, not the US State Department which is for promoting capitalism in the Ukraine. I don’t mind people disagreeing with me, just don’t put words in my mouth.

  6. The dogmatic neo-Stalinist `counter-hegemony’ sectarians cannot understand that if you are not pro-Putin you must be pro-Western imperialism. Having imposed their template over reality they then insist that you are either with us or against us. The task of real Marxists is to struggle for an independent class line that bows to neither Russian or EU imperialism or indeed the gangster capitalists that run Ukraine.

    johng posted this before, but the comments to the statement are worth reading, especially those posted by master-genie

    Not sure if referring to workers as “puppets” is a good approach, though. Sounds a little elitist.

  8. Louis, obviously you approach the issue from a different viewpoint than Washington and the NYT.

    The fascists also approach the thing from a different viewpoint than the PSL or WWP.

    Your post was about seemingly opposing parties coming to support the same things. Obviously they’d each have their own reasons for doing so.

    Ron Paul was vehemently against the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. That doesn’t mean leftists were wrong because they also opposed those wars.

    Same principle applies here.
