    At least the Russian Revolutionaries (Bolsheviks, Mensheviks, Social Revolutionaries) and the Iranian revolutionaries (Islamists and the Tudeh – Iranian Communists) waited until after they had achieved their main aim – overthrow of the regime in power – before they turned on each other. It may be fun to watch at times; at other times it may be horrifying (don’t get too close).

    Can’t waaait to see how the (D) party organs (i.e. the media) spin this.

    Yeah, Claire, “from the top” sounds like Soros is telling the brats not to touch each other in the back seat.

    Not sure how “the top” applies to a self-described anarcho-communist group. Well, unless it means the executive officer for the week, in which case, all decisions of that officer…

    Also: straoght?

    “Antifa lives matter”
    Sounds racist to me.
    Well, it is when it’s “blue” or “white” anyway.

    ^ Their words.
    It’s evidently a real, you know, thing.
    Marxists have traditionally promoted anarchy as an early phase of the Revolution™.
    In this case, they promote clearing one’s mind of traditional thinking (or any thinking, for that matter) in order to purse some ultimate virtue.
    Yeah, it’s easier, if you don’t have to include reality in the mix.

    Ooh, another crack in the mirror.

    I’m sure it makes me a bad person, but I’d be fine with antifa, blm, kkk, whomever, all shredding each other to tiny pieces, which the police and fire folk could then wash down the storm drains.

    “straoght from the top”.

    Yep, college-educated, all right.

    BLM and Antifa fighting each other reminds me of the opposing sides in the Spanish Civil War. For all intents and purposes, you really can’t tell the two apart without a scorecard — certainly not their goals, as all each side wanted was control of the levers of government to impose its version of government-sanctioned Nirvana.

    …coming straoght from the top…” Top of what?> Some illiterate’s head?
    Maybe the writer’s Gaelic.
    OTOH, I don’t know about this seperating stuff. Did he mean superating?
    “Superating” would work for me, as in “superating wounds”.
