I have sympathy for Syrian victims of this wretched war, not Russian spies (diplomats being in the business of espionage).

And you clearly have no fucks to give about people who may not want to watch someone being shot. A curse on all you thoughtless fucks who think it's acceptable to show people being killed, maimed, or torture porn of any variety, without nary a trigger warning and without a care how it might affect other people, for whatever political point you want to make. The casual not giving a shit about how people will react, whether or not violence has touched upon them personally, the way dead bodies are shared in an angry, macho sort of way. Some years back, my neighbours were shot dead by an abusive man. Thanks to the internet, I now know probably what it looked like. Cheers for that.

Oh yeah, solidarity with the people of Syria. Now let's all have a good giggle at yet another dead body. That'll bring the dead back.

Ah I see. Apologies. I take your point about failing to add a content warning.

However, I'm not going to not rejoice at the come-uppance of these assholes. Pity it wasn't his President.

I won't be crying any tears over the death of the Russian ambassador. It should be remembered though that he's been taken out by the far right. I'd presume that if the BNP had just murdered someone you wouldn't be cheering it on.

I haven't seen anything about the assassin's political commitments. But, in general, far-left, far-right, centre; Grey Wolves, TAK, ... It's all bourgeois politics, part of the same system.

To be clear, I don't consider terrorism or assassination a good/revolutionary method.

Perhaps the Turkish state will pin it on the Gülenists.

The Turkish state has already started to pin it on the Gülenists. His politics are right wing religious.

You seemed to be rejoicing about it before. Would you endorse a far right assaination in your own country like that?

Who's endorsing anything? I'm making fun of his murder in the same way that, say, one can laugh at that video of a Brussel's police-chief getting attacked/knocked-out (he could have died if he hit his head hard enough) without endorsing trade unionism.

Ultimately, they both deserve what they get, but the acts are certainly not going to bring about progressive change. It's simply humour, all in jest.

I also enjoyed this classic video from France, when the Airport workers ripped the clothes off their bosses.

A few days ago I received an E-mail from a member of the SPGB and this made me laugh:

‘A letter in today's Times recalled a nativity play in Scotland, where the small boy playing the innkeeper felt he couldn't betray Scottish principles of hospitality, and when he was asked if there was room at the inn said reluctantly there was no room, but added, "But now you're here, come in for a dram anyway."

We need a separate Alex Jones thread. Anybody see this, Jones trying to conduct an interview with Chomsky? Spoiler: it ends with Chomsky hanging up frustrated and Jones calling him a NWO shill.

I assume this is related to the oil protests in Mexico:
