Surely the anarcho Labourites and Plan C elements? Either way.... for fuck sake.

It's a very niche genre, but for those who have fond memories of Charlottesville organizer Jason Kessler getting yelled at by his dad in the middle of doing a video, a new competitor has appeared:

Quote:
During the livestream, he drove back to his mother’s house, anticipating a law enforcement presence, asking for “a couple of close buddies [to] pop over to my house in case shit happens, we can have EVAC set up and all that…. I ain’t gonna be caught lacking for exercising my Second Amendment rights. If they want to fucking fight, we can fucking fight.”

“My mom does not like this shit at all. She’s probably going to be really fucking pissed off,” he added... During the livestream, he set the phone down outside his mother’s house, but viewers could hear the conversation inside.

“What the fuck are you doing?” his mother yelled at him as soon as he entered the door. “Maybe because you’re posting stupid fucking shit on Facebook."

Just need a few more before we can compile the "top 10 fascists accidentally broadcasting themselves getting told off by their parents".

The price of this... one wonders who it is written for.

I like the photo-collage they've made at the top there, and as rhetorical flourishes go, I'm not sure "it is time for a long overdue rejection of Libcom, their “Working Class History” front, and everything it represents from our timelines and our movement" works quite as well as intended.

"Peace, Jobs, and Socialism" is such an awful slogan...
