Police sacrifice their right to be treated as individuals at the point that they sign up to be tools of oppression and a readily mobilized force to defend capitalist class interests and whiteness. Police are not people, they are embodied politics and power.
Fight back against the misogynist, racist “men’s rights” bigots!
First of all, fuck you. It’s always been like, you know, an irritating thing that you’d attempted to co-opt the language of feminism and other civil rights struggles to cloak your sexist ideas in bullshit like “Men’s Rights” and calling this sexist garbage “activism.” And for a long time, I think a lot of people like me were down with ignoring this shit because it was juvenile and stupid, but also because it seemed like this tactic was clearly the same as racists whining about why there isn’t White History Month, or homophobes trying to have a Straight Pride Parade, something that anyone with half a brain could see is transparently a way to prop up the bigotry of people who already control the balance of power in this world.
But this UC Santa Barbara killer brings up a way that this type of shit can affect people. Because, when you co-opt the rhetoric of revolution and struggle, it’s more than just “trolling” or some bullshit to make, you know, actual decent people angry. It’s language that can make a disturbed person think that defending bigotry is a legitimate struggle, that, in Rodger’s case, that owning and subjugating women is a cause worth killing and dying for. Because that’s what those words mean, you fucking garbage assholes, those words are for people who struggle from real oppression, to inspire people to sacrifice and never give up. The fact that straight white men have taken these words to rally around calcifying the bigotry that’s slipping from their fingers is truly disgusting, and now it’s more clear that it has fucking consequences.
Fuck you, you pieces of shit, fuck you.

"We are not robbers, we are libertarian resistance fighters. What we have just taken will help in a small way to feed the orphaned and starving children of those anti-fascists who you and your kind have shot. We are people who have never and will never beg for what is ours. So long as we have the strength to do so we shall fight for for the freedom of the Spanish working class."

Floorpunch. Beating some nazis.
Good bit of proletarian panto here: George Osborne attempts to look “normal” by going into a pub and ordering a beer just like the proles do
Starts to drink without even letting it settle.
Well done George, you fucked up your first ever pint. Put down your prop and get the fuck out you toff wanker.
Haha look at the contempt for him the guy on the right has.
I can imagine the Tories and Labour getting a PR course in the different rules about going to the pub.
"Now David, when it’s your round and someone wants a bag of nuts, don’t kick up a fuss!"
Hold the phone, here’s Nige doing the same thing!
who knows, maybe this is just how posh twats drink beer…
wait a minute, what’s that in the glass Dave, Guinness? He’s clearly been drinking it, but has it settled?
HAS IT FUCK
either they teach this a Eton or these muppets can’t even drink a beer
Tories - their drinks won’t settle for them - neither should you
Is there anything on my blog that would indicate to you that I have an interest in tanks
Maybe they meant to say Soviet tank tops, everybody likes tank tops
