Punk Politics # 10

Now El Trump is sounding like a 3rd world dictator following a suggestion from Falwell the Insane. It goes that Trump is owed an extra 2 years because people checked his power and legitimacy. Ya got me fucked up. Some dismiss this as bluster. I honestly think these psychopaths are serious. It’s very disturbing and telling that the celebrity wing of Christianity upholds Trump who is literally the least Christian (in the simple sense of a Christ following idea) president of the past 40 years. I’m sure we’re all familiar with the ever growing list of evidence that he has bad morals. I do find this more a threat than bravado based on Trump’s flagrant disinterest in the rule of law. This next year and a half is gonna be interesting. I wouldn’t be surprised to see alt-right goons at the polls for some old fashioned voter intimidation.

This one’s for the anarchists. So to define real quick. Anarchism is a complete absence of centralized government. So there would be no cops, no borders, no nation, no military or politicians from local municipalities all the up to the president. Now, I like this idea. Why then, are there so many who claim anarchism holding hands with socialists and communists or feeling the Bern. All of these believe in a strong central government which is clearly the opposite of anarchism. And if you’re an anarchist and helping build a stronger state then you are commiting suicide because somewhere down the line your beliefs will run afoul of the state apparatus. Sure, on a personal level you may have friends who march at protests with you that veer red instead of black, but ideologically when everyone truly understands what each view is about, it draws a line in the sand. Anarchism is allowing all to simply live by natural law. Don’t hurt people and don’t tale their stuff. Beyond that, do and say whatever the hell ya want. The 2 main parties and the socialists aren’t just gonna let ya live how ya feel most free. Socialism is statism and therefore not compatible with anarchism.

Urgent message to our politicians and presidential hopefuls. FUCK YOUR CLASSISM! This means Trump and the Clintonoids. This also means Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Yes ma’am you are the exact same as the limousine Liberals and Republicans who want is to sit down and shut up. “Cheap seats”? Girl, you got us fucked up! Who do you think voted for ya. It was people in the so called cheap seats who believed in your railing against corruption. Clearly you just put on an act. These politricksters are all the same. They administrate from the gilded towers. This isn’t representation, it’s oppression. There’s nothing new about this deal and they only use the working class. Do not be fooled! #punkvoter

Some unpacking here. The last SOTU shows What’s wrong with these party lines. Pelosi is getting treated like some saint because she threw shade at Trump. The reality is they both suck. Pelosi and Feinstein were the 1 percenters calling cops on punk shows in the 80’s. Hell, Diane was the mayor leading the beef patrolnto beat up kids trying to have a good time. And Trump is just the penultimate 1 percenter running the circus. None of them are our friends. They are the limo riding enemy of the poor and working class. They all have zero interest in us except for how rich we can make them by consistently voting them in and converting tax dollars into the wealth they suck upward.

Punk Voter 2.0 (Punk Politics special edition)

So it’s 2019. It’s time we start talking about voting if you aren’t already. So I’m starting a version of Punk Voter. Below you’ll some decent memes. Feel free to use them to start a conversation in your local scenes about voting. I know, we all talk about burning down city hall and fighting fascists in the streets. But we need to look to sustainable long term answers to this crisis situation. And if you’re saying “Fish it’s still over a year till the election” well trust me that the fascists are planning, so we should be too. #punkvoter

So I keep seeing articles about fentanyl laced cocaine. First pro tip is don’t do coke. But that isn’t really the issue here. So to break it down. Drug dealers and cartels ARE NOT lacing your coke with something that can kill you instantly. Because they are a business and dead customers don’t pay out. “Who then would do this” you may ask. Well, during prohibition our own government was putting poison laced bottles of whiskey on the black market and our own government put crack in the hoods to begin with. So likely it’s our own tax fed parasites likely trying to drum up fear to keep the drug war raging or mistrust of the Mexican cartels to justify clamping down on the border. It makes sense as it’s not the first time the good ol’ U.S.A. has ensured the death of substance enjoying citizens. So try and get crack that isn’t from the CIA and stay safe.

Gun control started in the 1960’s it was not about public safety. It was about racism. It was about the white man trying to keep the blacks in line as they were deeply afraid of the Black Panthers in California. And afraid of MOVE in Philadelphia. Responsible black citizens who aremd themselves in self defense of societal racism was the spark of gun control. The operative word in the argument is control. I’m not on the side of the NRA, I am on the side of the people who should have means to defend themselves in a society where the government beast becomes increasingly unreasonable.

The thirteenth amendment has been in the news a lot recently. The text of it reads “Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” To break it down Lincoln was a fraud as slavery was not abolished. Allocation of slavery or involuntary servitude is still the same demon that the white man vhad visited upon blacks and Irish in this country. And subjecting the continuously mushrooming prison population to this practice actually victimizes the same groups in a sense. Being that our prisons are filled with people of color and disenfranchised whites who are all seen with the same racist and classiest contempt. Therefore not only is the U.S. the prison house of nations but also the plantation still stands. As though this isn’t bad enough we export our plantations under the name Free Trade Zone (FTZ) to exploit POC in third world countries. I’ve seen one and it kinda looked like a concentration camp. To clear up any ambiguity, America has no fucking interest in ending slavery and this will continue until this country engages in a number of ethical practices that would require a certain level of ethics and human interest. All who defend this amendment without demand of edit and those who wish to abolish it are nothing more than overseers and house boys.

So everyone is melting down over Brett Kavanaugh. To put it simply, he’s not fucking qualified to serve on the supreme court. There’s the numerous allegations that he’s a rapist and overall sexual offender. His nonchalance towards sexual assault is problematic and disturbing. Beyond that he was highly instrumental in the PATRIOT ACT and called it Constitutional. What the fuck is constitutional about black sites, indefinite detention, warrantless taps of electronic communications and usurping the 4th Amendment. To reiterate, this guy isn’t fucking qualified to be a justice in our highest court. It’s quite funny that the defense of him is innocent until proven guilty for a guy who promoted the exact opposite of that during our illegal wars. Anyone else feel the irony?
