Crimethinc writes in their Call For An International Week Of Solidarity, July 20-17, 2017:

We are calling for a Week of Solidarity with the J20 defendants from July 20 to 27, 2017. July 20 marks six months from the initial actions and arrests during Donald Trump’s inauguration, and on July 27, a motion to dismiss the charges will be argued in court. The case has finally begun to receive the media attention it warrants; with this court date approaching and the cases underway, this is a crucial time for a second Week of Solidarity.

On January 20, 2017, thousands of people came to Washington, DC to protest the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump. In the early morning, blockades shut down security checkpoints and discouraged people from attending the inauguration itself, while impromptu marches and direct actions occurred throughout the day. There was a spirit of defiance in the air.

Midmorning, an “anticapitalist and antifascist” march of several hundred people made clear its opposition not just to Trump but also the system that made Trump possible… After about half an hour, the march was brutally attacked by police, who used chemical and crowd control weapons along with physical force, then boxed in (“kettled”) and mass-arrested people. Everyone on an entire city block was arrested and given the same charge of felony rioting. Approximately 214 arrestees now face a total of eight felony charges, including conspiracy and destruction of property. All of the J20 defendants are now facing up to 75 years in prison.

These 11×17 posters are 300dpi jpg images, approximately 1.7mb each:

Yer Liberals, no. 3

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 29th, 2017Categories: 2016 Election, Party Animals, elections

For the better part of a year and a half, Liberals have been screeching about how Sanders wasn’t “a real Democrat”, saying he was “damaging” the Democrats and that he and his supporters should leave the party — and after a year and a half of bullying, public insults, blame-shifting, gaslighting and other abuse, most progressive Democrats and other Left constituencies are thinking that ditching the Democratic Party sounds like a helluvan idea.

Needless to say these days, Liberals aren’t getting the reaction they’re hoping for from the Left on that point and, of course, the Liberals are having kind of a hard time getting their heads around it. Seems that finally, Liberal Democrats and the Left have reached common ground – just not in the way Liberals wanted.

And by the way, I need to send a shout-out and huge-ass props to Nina Illingworth, one of my favorite Left bloggers, who busts balls with straight raw truth, written in the kind of no-bullshit, smash-mouth style I really dig. A tweet she posted a week or so ago pretty much handed me this gag on a plate. Don’t forget to check out her blog, and toss a few bucks in her tip jar if you can. Thanks again, Nina.

Put A Fork In ‘Em

By mike flugennockTuesday - February 28th, 2017Categories: 2016 Election, Party Animals, elections

So, despite a strong progressive groundswell for Keith Ellison, Clinton flunkie Tom Perez has been elected Chairman of the Democratic Party (as if it really matters), and he won the way you always win in the Democrats — by kissing Wall Street’s ass, sucking Israel’s cock, and taking a big, steaming dump all over the Left.

This was inspired by a recently-tweeted nugget of gold from the John Podesta email leak trove, a snotty little fart by Perez in reply to one of the Hillary campaign honcho’s missives.

So, how’d that “stick a fork in him” thing work out for you guys?
