The American Leftist

An easel for a progressive teen with activist leanings to portray his thoughts and emotions. An amalgam of leftist politicking, activism, social justice, human rights, and pacifism. Lover of Noam Chomsky, libertarian socialism, and avant garde music. Freelance blogger, coffee connoisseur, and prospective Jesuit.

We are all anticapitalist in the end, end this futility and folly.

Hmm. I’m leaving this to the rest of you on my followers list for commentary.

ya heard that, racist, sexist pigs who don’t understand intersectionality? stop acting up, learn how to take a back seat, you’re destroying the cause

You know, I’d buy the message (ha ha ha, did u see what i did thar) even harder if I could be clear that that was what they meant, not this whole, “we gots to be united guise, because unity = lack of dissent”!

"Leftist infighting" sounds a lot like code for "people used to being in power regardless of the setting now getting called on their shit and not liking it". 

I appreciate the commentary, but I think the point was missed completely. Our enemies are gaining ground, united in hatred of all others and anti status quo liberation struggles. Yet the “left” quibbles over differences in ideology at the expense of theirselves and to the benefit of the oppressors. This isnt denying our differences more so it is acknowledging our common enemy aka white supremacist-capitalist-imperialist-patriarchy.
