Can’t tell the players without a libretto

please, just wear an explanatory t-shirt or something…

There was an “Anti-Marxist” rally ["No to Marxism in America" protest] planned for Sunday in Bezerekeley. All the City officials came out against it [*against* an Anti-Marxist rally *shocked face*] and called it a “White Supremacist” rally.

“Anti-Marxist” = “White Supremacist”
that’s new…

BAMN [founded by the openly-Marxist Revolutionary Workers League] is organizing to shut down what it claims is a “Neo-Nazi” rally in Berkeley on Saturday.

“Amber Cummings, a transgender woman who lives in the Bay Area” is the organizer of the “No to Marxism in America” rally.

Amber Cummings

“That is an outright lie that this mayor is propagating,” she said, of Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguín. “White supremacy is not allowed at my rally. We do not want racist people there. We do not want hateful people there.”

…Cummings said her event would be “a diverse rally” that would include several transgender women as well as “people of all colors.”

…Cummings said her event is focused on free speech, and seeks to criticize how “anti-American hatred” and “Marxism is being taught” at UC Berkeley. Cummings said she doesn’t think it’s right that she can’t walk on campus or through city streets with an American flag without getting harassed.

The social unrest uprising may not be splintering along the lines planned…

    To a commie, everyone else is a fascist.
    To a fascist, everyone else is a commie.
    To a racist, everyone else is another kind of racist.
    To a NorKopath, everyone else is an imperialist.
    To a Chicom, everyone else is an economic or territorial impediment.
    To an ex-KGB thug, everyone else is fair game.
    To an islamist, everyone else is an infidel.

    I worry that the islamofascists are gonna do something ugly to get back up on top of the list.

    Can’t seem to shake the term “lipstick on a pig.”

    It sure looks to me like this “alt-right” is just the “progressive spiel” repackaged as “New And Improved!”.
