They still don’t get that they will be first against the wall. Serge Lang August 3, 2017 at 9:37 am Serendipity is a wonderful thing Jim August 3, 2017 at 9:40 am I notice the Gulag piece is not open for comment, presumably in case anyone should point out the current level of support for Stalin in the Shadow Cabinet. Rob August 3, 2017 at 10:07 am They still don’t get that they will be first against the wall. Silver lining, etc. wat dabney August 3, 2017 at 10:17 am They should also learn from those other forms of leftism: nazism and fascism. Still. Baby steps, eh. Rob August 3, 2017 at 11:01 am Meanwhile, the Far Left doubles down on Venezuela: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-40810341 Note the smear of anyone protesting as “right wing”. Mr Ecks August 3, 2017 at 11:31 am The main problem with the present –illusory–rise of leftism (I say illusory because most of the losers pushing it would shit their pants if they actually had to live under it) is the HOW of fighting back. The Net is key but is now under an SJW attempt via the large businesses to shut down anti-socialist sites. The MSM and schools/Unis are sewn up and the Tory party are BluLab shite. The danger is growing. Instead of endless “Ain’t it Awful” about the left we should be trying to come up with new ways to attack. Cos they are–all day, everyday. Pat August 3, 2017 at 11:41 am Given that Snr. Chavez left $6bn to his daughter, perhaps his actual intentions were less honourable than his stated ones. Recusant August 3, 2017 at 11:43 am Mr Ecks Tell me about it. My mobile phone company, EE, won’t allow me to access anything from the likes of V-Dare, Vox, Jordan Peterson, etc. At first, when I clicked on a link and was blocked, I thought it must be because of porn or some such NSFW thing, but no, it is just for ‘bad thought’. bloke in spain August 3, 2017 at 5:40 pm @Mr Ecks “Instead of endless “Ain’t it Awful” about the left we should be trying to come up with new ways to attack. Cos they are–all day, everyday.” This is exactly the issue I’ve challenged the tossers run the Samizdata blog on, repeatedly. Worth remembering that the original samizdat was distributed at some considerable risk to the distributors. Russians were consigned to the gulags for doing so. Died doing so. Sorry, but libertarians libertarianing from their sofas, occasionally hosting talks where they join with like minded tossers in listening to libertarian pontificating just doesn’t cut the same mustard. The left is actually willing to get out there & fight. Until opponents of the left are willing to do the same, it’s a waste of time paying them any attention. Recusant August 3, 2017 at 6:12 pm Libertarians. Atheists. Vegans. All the same: it’s the first thing they let you know, but you wouldn’t want to share a trench with any of them. bloke in spain August 3, 2017 at 6:23 pm @Recusant All the opponents of the left can offer is a self congratulatory officer class with fuck all in the way of combat infantry. Flubber August 3, 2017 at 11:29 pm “All the opponents of the left can offer is a self congratulatory officer class with fuck all in the way of combat infantry.” Why do you think they are importing millions of Muslims then? Jonathan August 4, 2017 at 8:53 am I find it strange that anyone expressing support for National Socialism is seen as utterly beyond the pale, but someone expressing support for Communism is lauded and and accepted as being on ‘the right side of history’. Who decided this on this double standard?
