The ‘Black Bloc’ Anarchists Who Might As Well Be Working For the Republicans

by | Oct 1, 2020

I feel sorry for the black people from the neighborhood who just want the cops to stop murdering them but who — at least in many major cities — cannot have a peaceful protest without white anarcho-communists coming and turning the place into a live-action Trump commercial.

I used to know some of the left-anarchists who went to Seattle in 1999 for the WTO protest and such. They were good kids mostly, but they don’t know what they’re talking about or what role they’re really playing. But they never started major riots or set fires the way these people are now.

And of course the worse the crazy Twitter-style PC Commissars go after decent people and these kids keep hijacking BLM protests and turning them to destruction (not that it’s been all anarchists rioting and looting), the worse the right wing gets in response. You think conservatives were authoritarian? The radical right is, how should we say, much more radical. And they are changing fast in reaction to all this overreach by these supposed revolutionaries. When true Fascism comes to America it will be in the name of stopping the left anarchists and communists from their violence.

Institutions are, of course, in some sense the products of culture. But, because they formalize a set of norms, institutions are often the things that keep a culture honest, determining how far it is conducive to good behaviour rather than bad. To illustrate the...
