Antifa Are not Terrorists

AntiFa Enlgish Logo
Antifa Logo in English

People often call Antifa a terrorist organisation. This is not correct for multiple reasons. Antifa can stand for Anti-Fascist, Anti-Fascism, or Anti-Fascist Action (on their flag). First of all, Antifa is an idea, not a centralised organisation; you cannot join a centralised group known as “antifa” that covers all of the members of antifa. If someone says they are a member of antifa, they most likely mean that they identify with the idea and maybe sometimes protest or advocate in other ways. You may also be part of a group that identifies as part as antifa, but in no way are they “official” antifa.

Not all people who identify with antifa are violent people who go on the streets and beat people up and do damage to property. Many people who identify as antifa are people who advocate online, people who do peaceful protests, people who argue against fascism or other authoritarian ideas, or just some one who does not like fascism or similar ideologies. Just being against fascism can make you an anti-facist.

 

The reason antifa sometimes damages property is because many of them are leftist. Many people who are on the far left generally disagree with having private property. They agree with personal property, but not private property. They see land owned by some rich person as private property. Personal property is stuff that you use for yourself, such as your tooth brush, you phone (in most cases), food, and other stuff that cannot be used to give yourself and advantage.

Not to mention that not all antifa protests actually hurt anyone, many of them are peaceful people just fighting for rights. Often times when someone is hurt, it is often a police officer or someone who they are protesting against (they often do counter protests). They see police as a threat to their freedom and that’s why they sometimes attack them. Sometimes they are only attacked because they came there or they came there and started to attack and stop the protesters who in some cases are not doing anything wrong, in fact, the police often seem to make the violence worse and cause up more trouble.

 

Not to mention that there has not been a recorded murder caused by antifa protest that I am aware of so far. If anyone has any evidence that shows otherwise, feel free to send we a link to a news article or video, and do the same if someone else says antifa has killed someone. This is a common myth that is going around.

Many revolutionaries like some people who consider themselves antifa believe that the state and bourgeoisie will not give up their position of power peacefully and that their would have to be some violence involved in order to bring about social change. Many violent protests lead to change, you just do not hear about them as often because you are discouraged by the state and bourgeoisie to do them. Look at the Latin American Revolutions, Haitian Revolution, Russian Revolution, and overthrow of the Shah. All these probably would not of been possible without violence.

 

Many say that Antifa are the real fascists because they use violence and that’s considered fascist. While authoritarians often use violence, they most often do it with the goal of controlling other people, while antifa in most cases is fighting against being controlled. Fascists are for control, while antifa are against control and are fighting against being controlled or people who want to eventually control them or help someone else control them. If there is no violence, then the state will feel free to control us more and more, and they are being violent for their own self-defence, sometimes it is hard to avoid hurting other people, you just got to stay away if you think you will get hurt.

Another misconception is that antifa thinks that they are strong and that they are in fact weak. This often comes from how they dress up and sometimes seem to look tough. Just because you cover your face does not mean you are tying to be tough, in fact, it can show that you are trying to hide you  face, this is because you may be afraid of what your government may do to you. Also doing violent acts does not mean you think you are tough, it just means you are doing violent acts. Antifa people are not any weaker than an average person, how does hiding yourselves or anything like that make you much weaker? It just means you fear a much stronger power, not that you are weak.

 

Similar to above, many people say that your ideology is bad if you have your face covered and often show pictures of antifa, the KKK, and other protesters. This does not make your idea bad, it just means that you are afraid people who do not like your idea are going to do something bad, or you may think it weakens chances in your life if a potential boss does not like your political beliefs (why many people do not talk about politics in general). It can be a sign of weakness to not talk about your political ideas in public, but considering that there is also stuff you can loose especially if your idea is uncommon, its not all that bad to hide yourself in some cases. The only reason I cover myself when I protest is because I do not want the state to try to get me in trouble, but I will happily fight for my ideas with you.

 

If we go to the definition of terrorism, there is often no universal meaning, though it is often “using violence or threats to influence politics or religion.” UK, US, and UN laws have similar definitions and are more specific and include to civilians, property, and the state in most cases.  While some people who are with antifa may do these things, they do not do it nearly as much as many governments do, such as the US, UK, and UN. The wars in the middle east that they create kill many civilians and destroy property there, and in most western European Countries and North America seem to think there countries are great. Police agencies terrorise much more than antifa does, and most people love the police in their countries.  The United States is Hypocritical when they call someone terrorists when the country was created because of “terrorism.”  ISIL are labelled terrorists by the United States, when most of the acts they did are done by the United States government. The United States destroys things like ISIL, they take land like ISIL, they kill people in these conflicts like ISIL, and so much more. The United States considered The People’s Democratic Republic of Korea a “rouge” state when they hardly attack anyone. So before you call Antifa terrorists, look at the country you live in, as there is a chance they are even worse.

 

 

Another less commonly seen definition for terrorism is “enemy of the state.”  But as in the example I showed you above, your government may not be all that great and you may want to rebel. I doubt the United States considers many of their founders terrorists when they were enemies of their government (The British Government at the time). This just shows the hypocrisy in the United States and other nations idea of what terrorism is. And what is even worse is punishing people for being “enemies of the state.”

 

Probably the biggest argument, is that just because a few people does something, does not make everyone in the group bad. Just like people from a different place than you. Maybe a person from some Asian country is stereotypically good at math, but that does not mean all or most actually are. Its just a few are and that’s the reputation people give them, not all stereotypes are true, and many are based on the examples that get the most publicity. Most people who identify with antifa do not go out and punch people, just some do and that’s the reputation they have gotten.

 

I hope to update this article in the future but hope it has cleared some things up for you.

Donald Trump Impeachment Inquiry

Recently Nancy Pelosi, the speaker for the House of Representatives for United States has been trying to impeach United States President Donald Trump. Apparently an anonymous whistle-blower reported Donald Trump abusing his power and trying to cover it up. Trump and his personal attorney possibly blackmailed president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden so he has less chance of winning the election, as well as his sun named Hunter. Ukrainian Advisers seemed like they agreed with the rumour.  Around the same time, Trump stopped aiding Ukraine’s military aid. The whistle-blower also accused the White House   of trying to cover up these calls. The part with the calls being hidden had been confirmed, and similar things have been done to Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia. According to some people who have been with Trump, these kinds of foreign interactions are “typical.” Trump has stated that he is not worried about interfering with the United States Election. This is not the 1st attempt to try to impeach Trump, some talk had begun even before he had taken office. Trump has done many impeachable actions and there was also suspicion that the Russians interfered with the 2016 election. One of the 1st attempts to impeach Trump was in his 1st year where it failed by a 58–364 margin because the House back then was mostly Republican. The last impeachment was run by 2 Democrats named Al Green and Brad Sherman. Things have changed since then, now Democrats have a lead in Representatives. 232 Democrats, 1 Republican, and 1 Independent support the impeachment inquiry. This number is a majority of the  of the House. Impeachment does not always mean you are taken out of office. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached by remained in office. Richard Nixon resigned so he could not be taken out of office.  Some of Trumps business allies have stayed silent, according to AOL. Some of Trumps supporters do not seem to believe in the existence of the wrong doing or do not really care, some of his business allies have just stayed silent. Most of the people who funded his campaign still support him and some criticise the impeachment inquiry.  Trump also threatened that the stock market will go down if he is impeached. He also requested the full transcript on the incident be released by the White House. Trump’s financial situation is also largely unknown; It is largely estimated by Forbes that he has around 3,1 Billion USD. This number is largely debated though, some say he could be in debt. Public opinion in General favours impeachment from register voters. With many polls putting the support number at around 45% and 40% disfavour. The incident of impeachment has triggered memes, tweets, political discussion and much more from the public. Many other things done by Trump may influence the public’s decision such as ICE, the idea to build a wall, Tariffs, and so much more. Some say they think of Trump as a Neo-Nazi, and white nationalist, and other similar things.  The stock market looks like it may go into a recession soon and this may make Trump loose 2020 even if he is not taken out of office. We will have to see what information comes out in the following days, weeks, and months.

What does Bourgeoisie Mean?

The Bourgeoisie is the Middle and in some cases upper classes in capitalism. These are the guys who are responsible for Worker Exploitation, Low Quality Products for high prices, monopolies, low quality life style, authoritarianism, inequality of resources, and in general inequality. The Word in Français(French) is Middle Class (The Word Comes From Français), this is because in some cases, especially when the term was created, the aristocracy was considered higher power as they often had government power or other positions of power, though the Bourgeoisie often has big influence on these people.

An individual part of, relating to, or supporting the Bourgeoisie is know as a Bourgeois. It can be used sometimes as both a noun and an adjective.

The opposite of Bourgeoisie and Aristocrat is the Proletariat,  this is the working class which is exploited by the Bourgeoisie.

Anti Capitalism Flags

Anti Capitalist Action

 

Based off of Anti Communist Action which is based on Anti Fascist Action

Anti Capitalist Action 2

 

This is one I made myself, and it is similar to the 1st one but a triangle and a flag in the middle with a black star, similar to the Zapatista flag but with the colours inverted. On the Right it says Proletarians from all countries Unite! This means all the workers from around the world, come and unite against the bourgeoisie. Down With Capitalism means that we do not want capitalism and want it to be replaced.   At the Top is a hammer and sickle, a common symbol for communism.

 

 

DeepdotWeb.com Seized By Law Enforcement and DarkWebNews.com no where to be found

On 8 May, 2019, DeepdotWeb.com was seized by the FBI, Europol, and other LE agencies. The owners were both Israeli citizens. 1 was living is Israel, the other was in Brasil. They were accused of money laundering and kickback money. They had an affiliate thing going on where they got commission from everything bought, and also possibly received money for ranking their marketplace. They had tones of money in their dwellings, so they did earn a lot from this. They were both arrested. Their court files can be found on the web. When you go to deepdotweb.com now it shows an image of seizure.

Their Onion link does not appear to do anything.

I have since then notices that DarkWebNews.com no longer works and their social media has been taken down. I do not know when this happened, and the Wayback Machine on Archive.org does not index it, but it is probably pretty recently. I can try the Wayback Machine on their social media sometime, but I do not know if DarkWebNews will be back, if it was taken down by LE, or what happened. Their site has Whois guard, so it is hard to find info on this site, and there is less info about it on the web, but if I had to guess, I would guess they are from Panama, since it said that in the WHOIS still.

It seems like recently the government has been cracking down on Dark Web stuff. There is suspision that they were part of the shut down of Dream Market, and they shut down Valhalla, Wall Street, and I think some others recently. I am very upset that the state is trying to get rid of these sites. They help bring privacy to online shopping and the web in general. The state is just choosing to be like Big Brother. Surprisingly, the price of Bitcoin is still going up despite these places being the hotspot of purchases with Bitcoin.

Hypocrisy of Parents

You often have parents who tell their children not to do something because that something is bad. Such as beating someone up for not obeying you, or acting upon impulse, or stealing from someone else. While some of these may be things to avoid in this current situation or things you may not want to do in general, parents try extra hard to enforce these rules upon their children sometimes. But if you’ve looked into it, sometimes you would notice, that the parent does these things when disciplining their child or sometimes, just for any reason. They say doing something is bad, and do it themselves. Such as, if a hit someone, the parent may think that is bad, so what do they do? They often hit the child who committed the act of violence. Why would you do violence to someone if you think violence is wrong? The idea that it is wrong can often be used as an excuse for the you not to do it, so then the person who is saying it is wrong can just have an advantage over you. They often have excuses such as since they are parents it gives them exceptions to their own rules or that it is for the child’s own good. The issue with the 1st is there is no reason why someone being a parent would give them any reason to be accepted by the children. Parents sometimes say how they gave their children life. This is true, but 1st of all you never asked for that life, and like me, wish you never had it. 2nd of all, just because your parents give you life does give you any objective obligations towards them. Another thing parents say is that you live under their property. Now this is similar to the one about parents giving their kids life; children often do not have a choice where they life. The state often forces them to live with their parents who do this kind of stuff to them. While it is in some cases possible to escape from this, it is often super hard and may need parental approval. Parents will rarely accept. Which brings us to our next point; the state enables this to happen to a large extent for creating exceptions to the laws that allow parents to take from their kids even if it is their own money, and not let the kids take anything. They force the law on minors, but not parents. There are also laws which exist only for minors, such as runaway laws, and other rebel laws. And yet, they are often taught in schools how they are “free”. This brings us to our 2nd section, that this hypocrisy is for their own good. 1st off, we have a section of our forum based on dissing this idea, the name of the section is Anti-Paternalism, 2nd it does it benefit the kids most of the time. Beating them and taking their stuff is just going to make them revengeful to get their stuff back (often through stealing ) or to beat someone else up. Which, if you are punishing them for these actions, actually just makes them want to do it more. Also, many of these “benefits” the children do not want anyways and it just wastes their time.

Edit 3 June 2019
Also, Parents sometimes hit you or steal from you even if they tell you not to for a completely different reason.

That’s it for now, I may make changes later. Feel free to challenge any of these ideas

State of The Union Opinion 2019

The State of the Union is happening today as I am writing this. There are many issues with the state of the union which I wish to cover. The 1st issue, and this happens a lot even outside of the state of the union. This issue is that people call the USA, America. The USA MAINLAND is in America, but they are not the only part of America. And Not all of their land is even in America(such as Guam). Here is a Map of America and the USA.
[​IMG]

The Blue is The USA, Everything in the line is America. Yes I know I left out some islands part of America and Parts of USA-Only/Non-American Land. But as you can see, USA is not the only part of America. And even though they are not on this map, some islands the USA owns are not in the Americas. When they call themselves just “American” they seem to think they are the only Americans. I often call people from USA “United Statesian”, I am United Statesian, and I do not think that we are the only part of America.

Next thing, they have many references to god. Many people belive in god, but there are some people who do not. When you put god references in your speech to the whole country, even full of people who do not belive-in a single god or any higher power, they are leaving those people out. If you belive-in god, that’s ok, but I do not think they should push that on people who do not belive-in a higher power.

They also like to say how the “State of the Union is Strong”. This can be good or bad depending on how you view it. In this case, in many ways I think it is bad. Being together with the federal government lets them control you more, they block autonomousness.

Another thing, is they talk about closing boarders more. Why should we even have boarders? Boarders stop business decisions and just benifit the state. EU contries dont really have boarders with other EU Contries, why should we have such strong boarders? Wouldnt all that crime eventually spread out and be even? Boarders I think do more harm than good. We could work together with contries, but the state does not seem to like that. If state did not exist, there most likely would be no borders. It would be great IMO.

One thing they said is how they are working on a “trade deal” with PROC (People’s Republic Of China). What kind of “trade deal” could they be making? Why cant they just let the people who live in the country decide the trades on their own? Why do they need governement to do that for them? Or do they mean tarrifs when they say trade deals? Those are bad, they are just the government saying how much power they have and how they do not want you to benifit other contries even if it benifits you.

Another thing is that Trump called us Socialist, which in some ways we are depending on who you ask. But I think we are more of a Social Democracy. Socialism I think is more of a transition to Communism and maybe in super rare cases capitalism. But do you think we will ever go to Communist or Capitalist? I doubt it, if we did, then the government would loose their power. And we all know they do not want that.

Another thing, he says they will cut taxes. Sounds good IMO, but is it really do you think? Do you actually think the government will cut its spending on things we do not really need? No! They are probobly just going to build more debt that the newer generations will have to pay off.

One last thing I want to mention for now, is how the U.S President is picking sides. They are claiming that their pick for the president of Venezuela is the legit president fo Venezuela. There is still debate on that. And they also claim that Jerusalem is the capital is Isreal. It may be, but it is also under dispute with Palestine. The USA does not recognise Palestine for some reason, they are just spitting in their face. Also, USA claiming the legitness of their side probobly makes their allies angry, such as Russian Federation or PROC. I recognise Palestine, but USA government does not.

Now there are many more things I would like to cover, but I am a little low on time and ideas now, I will most likley be editing this to find more problems with the state of the union.

Why we need to abolish the minimum wage.

The minimum wage is suppose to help people in the lower classes not be poor. But there are many disadvantages to it, 1st of all, it is anti-capitalist, and such a thing would not exist in Communism either, since wages do not exist in communism. Its just a regulation. If someone pays too low, then people can just not work there. If you are limited in options, you can just go on strike in a union of other workers until they either pay you back or do not have any employees. If everyone pays low, you can go to a communist group. The government must just be assuming that we are too stupid to decide what we can live off of. They, like all the time, are using paternalism to justify what they are doing so they can control us more. Its not “wrong”, but I think it has more bads than goods, another thing is it makes it harder for a startup to hire anybody and makes it so it is harder for them to gain momentum. This in turn causes for less jobs and higher unemployment (which government seems to care about). If they do need to hire some people for a minimum wage, then the goods start to cost more. Some of the things these people do are easy and probably do not require minimum wage to be done. Another thing, is that if people cost too much, then the employers are just going to hire people off-shore or use robots to do the work for them. This is just a regulation to try to stop unchecked capitalism. Unchecked Capitalism is good for people like me, but not for governments, so that’s why they try to stop it in my opinion.

 

 

Edit 27/09/2019 CE :

 

I am now an Anarcho-Communist, and see minimum wage as a way to keep the capitalist and power and make it look like the state is helping. The Minimum wage does not help workers in my opinion, the prices of things will just go up, as long as there is capitalism, there will be oppression.
