Personal Shit, Politics

happy birthday to me!

Thanks everyone for all the birthday well-wishes yesterday! Seeing a House seat in Oklahoma turn from red to blue was one of the best presents I could ever receive. … though seeing Scott Walker have his ass handed to him in Wisconsin was a particularly delicious thrill!

It’s not “radical” for revolutionary whites to abstain from voting. It’s selfish, myopic, privileged and dickish.

“If voting really accomplished anything, they’d make it illegal,” your radical friends say? Well they are making it illegal, so tell them to shut the fuck up. And if they, or you, are sitting on a mountain of privilege because you’re white, male, cis, or unlikely to have friends and family affected by ICE or […]

my answer to a now-deleted question on Quora

I had fun answering this question on Quora, but in the middle of trying to add photos to my response, the folks at Quora removed it. Yeah, it was a weird, racist-y troll question, but I think I had a really good answer. Here it is. Did Armenians lose their ancient land, Antarctica, to penguins? […]

Kavanaugh’s confirmation will spell the end of GOP hegemony (if we want it).

With their rush to nominate Kavanaugh, they’re actively working to piss off the voters they most desperately need if they want to keep control in 2018.

Help Geo get back to El Salvador!

If Geo wanted to turn himself in to ICE, he could technically go back “all expenses paid!” But we don’t want him to go through the pain, humiliation, and danger of being another piece of flotsam churning through the ICE-y stream. No matter where you stand politically, I don’t think you want that, either.

Progressives Need to Run for Office–Any Office!

We spend so much time trying to plead for mercy and understanding from those in political power, when in fact we could be them, in some cases merely by writing our names on pieces of paper.

If you don’t watch this video of my band playing “I’m So Bored with the U.S.A.” then clearly you hate me and you’re SCUM and I don’t want to know you.

Happy Interdependence Day, everybody! This is a cover of the Clash by the Children of Jack Acid.

Immigrants (whether “legal” or not) commit LESS crimes than native born folks, says the Cato Institute.

The one thing we agree on, across the political spectrum, is that crimes, including sexual assault and murder, are terrible. I never thought I’d say this, but the Cato Institute has pointed the way towards helping reduce these problems significantly in the United States.

To reduce America’s crime rates, let’s abolish I.C.E. and open our borders immediately!

Is Trump woke?

Is Trump woke? I just heard him recite a powerful poem, written by a pretty hip African American. In it, a woman finds a snake half-dead from cold and hunger and she takes it home with her and revives it, only to be murdered. Trump asked that we keep “immigration” in our minds when hearing […]

accidental marketing poem: “acai beans”

I just received an amazing email at my day job that, when you clear out the clutter, is actually a beautiful poem! Aside from breaking up the sentences a bit, and removing any strange links that might take over your computer and swallow your soul, I haven’t rearranged a single word or changed a lick […]

a question for Jordan Peterson fans

If you like Jordan Peterson, do you agree with his theory that SJWs are a new form of communism? Jordan Peterson has more than once argued that “Social Justice” advocates are basically rebranded communists. The below is just one example of his conflating “neoprogressive social justice” methods with being a “Marxist comprehension of the world.” […]
