Some Friendly Advice for Nazis and Klansmen From a Hippie Liberal Activist Jew

2017-09-01T21:30:29.969-07:00

Hello Members of Unite-the-Right!Greetings Fellow Free Speech Activists! Goodness Gracious… look at all of you! Come in! Come in! There’s plenty of room for all of us here in the big tent of the First Amendment!  Look at all of these fresh young faces!  (And I’ve been assured that some of you are very fine people…) You know, I’ve been calling myself a free speech activist for years, just for sticking signs up on freeways … I guess you’re calling yourselves free speech activists because saying you’re having a rally for free speech sounds a lot better than saying you’re having a rally for Nazis or the Klan.  It’s a bit more difficult to be a Nazi out here in public than it was back on the internet, but thank goodness for Free Speech eh?Now, I’m not going to lie here, it’s a little weird sharing the title with y’all… what with me being just a little ol’ San Francisco hippie, and you all being Nazis and Klansman and all… but hey, everyone’s saying the only way we’re gonna heal this country is by reaching out to the other side… We all gotta learn how to work together, and frankly I can’t think of a more perfect opportunity then the one we’ve got right here! Now, I’ve been at this almost as long as I can remember, so I hope you don’t mind a bit of advice from an old hippie. Of course I saw the Unite-the-Right kickoff event in Charlottesville and all that nasty business that followed and I think we can all agree it was a bit of a bumpy start… But with everyone on TV denouncing you and wanting to impeach the President just for supporting you… well I’m sure that must’ve seemed just a little unfair. ‘Course accidentally destroying a Presidency you’re trying to support is one of those things that can really damage a group’s reputation, especially when you’re just starting out. But I gotta be straight with you here: it’s because you’re Nazis.See, normally having the President refer to your organization as “having some fine people” is a good thing. It doesn’t require much more response than a “Thank You” and an immediate fundraising mailer. Since you all are Nazis though, the appropriate response is just a little more complicated, but still, it should’ve been obvious even to newbies like you. I’m gonna be brutally honest here - when Trump said y’all had some fine people in your group he was pitching you one of the easiest softballs in political history, and not only did you miss it, y’all didn’t even swing. Now normally I probably wouldn’t be helping you, but this is one of those things like seeing a child playing on a freeway - you just gotta do something about it. Before we go any further though, we should probably straighten a few things out.First off, since you guys are Nazis I should probably mention that I’m a Jew. Although traditionally this has been a less-than-ideal working relationship, I’m willing to look past it if you are. I’m also very much a liberal and what y’all call a  “do-gooder” or “Social Justice Warrior.”  I know you folks sneer at it, but I just like helping people - it’s just the way I am. I’m also considered to be a bit of a hippie. I know how for conservatives that’s just a generic insult - another way to call liberals assholes - And you all being so young you might not know this, but the term “hippie” originally referred to the lifestyle and aesthetic of 1960’s counter-culture, characterized primarily by long hair, colorful clothing, a pacifist political outlook and casual attitude towards sexuality and drug use. Now even though that does rather fit me to a T, I don’t really consider myself a hippie at all… I’m just a regular guy who gets mistaken for one a lot. For example right now I’m wearing tie-dye and reek of pat[...]



Dear Friends and Arguably Fellow Americans: A letter to the GOP leadership.

2017-08-29T13:42:16.752-07:00

Dear Sirs, As you know, things are going badly wrong right now, with every indication that they’re about to get a whole lot worse. How much worse of course none of us can really know, although it’s fairly obvious that you all have a much better idea than the rest of us. With the only thing unravelling faster than your pretext of innocence being the President himself, this might be a good time to stop and weigh your options in what little calm remains before the inevitably coming storm.Please understand that I fully appreciate the seriousness of this situation and that the following is merely pro forma and not meant as a joke:“To put this all behind us and for the good of the nation, you should tell us the complete truth regarding any and all contacts, associations, collusion, transferences, payments etc. between yourselves and any Russian or other foreign entities, ”Again, I’m sorry. That was just for the sake of protocol and not meant to make light of things.  Grim as things are though, it is nice to have a bit of a chuckle.According to the dossier compiled by Christopher Steele, those of you who have colluded with or accepted contributions from Russian agents include top officials of the RNC, a number of senators and as many as 100 GOP House members.  As time passes and evidence mounts supporting the claims of the Steele Dossier, we have seen a growing number of its assertions that were once unbelievable becoming instead undeniable. Thus sadly it no longer seems wise to credit yourselves or your party with the benefit of doubts that would’ve normally been given without a thought. Frankly, the only thing that keeps me from assuming the whole lot of you as traitors across-the-board isn’t respect so much as it is a sort of wistful nostalgia. I want you to know,it hasn’t been easy witnessing your party’s deterioration over the years. As pompous and wrong-headed as you may have been under Ronald Reagan, you managed at least the pretense of being in the game for reasons greater than merely winning.  Even though I doubted you had much if any respect for the values on which the country was built, it was nice that you at least referred to them from time to time. And as insincere as it may have seemed to me, at least you paid lip-service to such ideals as equality, fairness and respect, and did so even with a touch of what might pass as humility. Since then though it’s just been a dismal parade of charlatans like the Atwaters,  Gingriches and Falwells slavishly pandering to the very worst elements of our society. I won’t pretend that your constant insults and questioning the patriotism, morality and even humanity of the left didn’t cause some bitterness, but the worst of it was simply being forced to watch the slow and painfully ugly spectacle of your party’s decline into the hollow, flailing, partisan shell that it is now.Now this next part might sound a bit mean… But trust me, however painful it may be to read, you can take solace in knowing it will be quickly forgotten in the horrors awaiting you in the days to come. Whether through greed, malevolence or sheer political cowardice, you have brought this upon yourselves, so I’d like to assure you that whatever consequences you suffer will be far less than you deserve. By which I mean I’d like to assure you of that, but sadly I can’t. Historically these things tend to get rather ugly, so it’s altogether possible that your retribution may in fact be equal to, or possibly even much more than, that which you deserve. However long and honorable your public service resume may be, or how high your stack of awards and achievements, I can assure you that bloodthirsty mobs aren’t known for being meticulous about paperwork.  Even if your legislative talents [...]



Nationwide Action: September 1st - 4th

2017-08-10T11:57:48.244-07:00

 This Labor Day weekend citizens around the country will be celebrating their Constitutional right to free speech by posting political messages on public property. In keeping with the First Amendment, signs will be posted on fencing around parks, libraries, government offices, freeways, highways and Interstates. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 18.0px Times}  Signs will be made out of cardboard and attached by wire and bungee cords to be easily removable in accordance with local ordinances - no graffiti, locks or adhesives will be used. Signs on overpasses and roadside fences will be legible and posted safely on the inside of fencing to eliminate any risk of falling into traffic.p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 18.0px Times} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 18.0px Times} Speech protected by the First Amendment must be non-commercial, non-threatening and cannot advocate violence, political or otherwise. Signs will only be placed on roadways already containing commercial speech.Participants are asked to photograph their work and share on social media. Please send pictures tofreewayblogger - at - yahoo - dot - com or post on FacebookExamples of previous actions can be seen here.Although the examples shown here are unabashedly partisan, all signs from all points of view submitted will be republished, provided they fall under the protection of the First Amendment. Apart from that, you can say what you want: this is America. How to make a sign in five minutes using cardboard and tape.How to make a whole lot of signs.America has always been known as a place where the right to Free Speech is sacred and it's time we lived up to it. When the Founding Fathers gave us the First Amendment it wasn't meant as a nicety or window dressing: it was created specifically to allow any citizen to reach out to as many of their fellow citizens as they could, particularly in times of national crisis.We are a leaderless group of Free Speech activists who believe the First Amendment is more than just our right, it's our responsibility. With the national political discourse monopolized by corporate and institutional interests, the voice of the individual citizen has become more important than ever. Along with being cheap, easy and fun, here are 97 other reasons why signpainting is the ideal means of political expression. Feel free to join us this Labor Day weekend, as well as the other 362 days of the year.Further questions, comments or press inquiries can be directed to freewayblogger-at-yahoo.comor via Twitter or Facebook(Note: Although controversial, the right to use freeway overpasses and fencing for political messages and patriotic displays has always been upheld by the courts, thanks largely to the precedent set by the flags and patriotic displays that appeared after the attacks of September 11th: posting political opinion on overpasses is the same as hanging a flag.See Brown vs. California Department of Transportation)p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 18.0px Times} [...]

What We Talk About When We Talk About Trump

2017-07-26T14:36:59.239-07:00

(With Apologies to Raymond Carver)“I’ll tell you what we should do…” Phil said.  “We should start up a third party and call it the goddam “Jesus Cowboy NASCAR” party…  Jesus.  Cowboy.  NASCAR.”There were four of us sitting around the table drinking beer and talking about politics. “And that’s not just the name of the party,” Phil went on,  “I mean that’s the whole fucking platform.  Our candidates believe in Jesus, they like Cowboys and they’re into NASCAR.  There.  We’d win every election in this country from now until Doomsday.”Everybody laughed except Lynn, who’d probably heard it before.  Lynn was Phil’s second wife.  I’d never met the first one. I pictured myself in a voting booth, looking down at the candidates names with the words “Republican”, “Democrat” and “Jesus Cowboy NASCAR” after them. There was no question in my mind about who would win.  The table went quiet for a second.  There was sadness in the way the light was coming through the curtains and in the way the word “Doomsday” kept hovering in the room. “So it pisses me off when I hear journalists start talking about a national divide.  Where the fuck were they when Tinyhands McPussygrabber was running?  The asshole was a lying fascist scumbag from the start!”My wife, Therese, put her hand on my shoulder.  She’d been up north, taking care of her mother for the past two weeks. I was glad to have her back.  “Oh come on,” Lynn said, “You don’t know that.” “Of course I know that.  We all knew that! Right?”  Phil looked at Therese and me and we nodded.  The asshole been a lying fascist scumbag from the start.  And we’d all known it.“Well I didn’t know that.” Lynn said.“He called illegal immigrants murderers and rapists. That was practically the first thing he did.” Therese said.  Usually I called her Terri.“Yeah.” Phil said, “As if they were all just monsters and that was it. No economic factors, nobody trying to get ahead, make something of themselves or trying to help their families. It was like the only reason people came here was because the United States was some kind of irresistible Shangri-fucking-La for raping and murdering people.”Phil was a cardiologist, so he could say things like that.  He was an alright guy.  Kind of a drinker.“It wouldn’t be so bad,” Terri said, “if his mental problems had’t been so obvious from the start.”  I was thinking about the bottle of bourbon I had in the cabinet, whether or not to bring it out.  I thought it was about half full.“And if evangelical Christians weren’t such utterly hypocritical idiots…”  Phil said.  Lynn rolled her eyes and put her hand on top of his on the table.Terri started talking about tribalism and I decided to get the bourbon while I still could.  “Does anyone want glasses?”  I asked.“No.”“No.”“No.”I put the bottle on the table.  “’Nother Beer?”“Yes. “Yes.”“Please.”I went to the refrigerator and took out four beers.  That was it: now we were out of beer.“Just exactly when did they decide that a draft-dodging pussygrabbing New York real-estate playboy wanna-be was the voice of rural working-class Christian America?” Phil asked.“Around the time he started saying Obama was from Kenya.” Terri said.Phil said “The guy spends his entire life - builds a whole brand around nothing except celebrating bullshit luxury items. He never gave two duck farts about working people, the Bible, or even the whole goddam Republican Party. And now they think he’s practicall[...]



The 1st Amendment is More Than a Right: It's a Responsibility

2017-07-24T20:00:57.764-07:00

The framers of the Constitution gave us the First Amendment for precisely the kind of situation we’re in now. By making our right to political expression so fully protected the founding fathers weren’t just allowing us to protest, they were practically demanding it. In both the amendment itself and other writings, they made it clear that free political speech wasn’t just the heart of democracy, but also its safeguard. And if you think the ability to protest still isn’t going to be enough, remember there’s over 300 million of us, and we’ve all got it.Apart from the violent overthrow of the government, you can openly advocate just about any cause, say whatever you want, however you want, using whatever means are at your disposal to reach to as many of your fellow citizens as you possibly can. If your free speech breaks other laws you can still defend it in court, but only if they catch you. If it involves vandalism, violence or threatening people they’re probably going to come after you. If you’re violating traffic codes by putting signs on freeways, they’re probably not — at least that’s been my experience so far. By making my signs easily removable and putting them on the inside of fencing so they can’t fall into traffic, makes me relatively harmless so there’s little impetus to catch me. Also my ability to strike anywhere at any time and be gone in seconds makes me pretty damn difficult to catch. Nevertheless, given plenty of evidence and at least a dozen opportunities to arrest me, the State of California (and to a lesser extent, Arizona, Oregon and Washington,) has shown no interest in bringing me to court. I think that’s at least partly due to understanding the strength my constitutional rights have versus the relative insignificance of my infractions. Putting aside the whole signs-on-freeways thing, think about how much is covered by the scope of the First Amendment and how you might be able to take advantage of it. There’s an old saying that goes “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission...” meaning it’s better to just do something assuming you have the right than to forego the benefit of the doubt by first asking permission. While there’s a lot of things where that philosophy is probably both wrong and dangerous, the First Amendment isn’t one of them. The way I see it, pushing the free speech envelope isn’t just our privilege, it’s practically our responsibility. And so long as we’ve got a congress seeming blind to the mounting evidence that the President is acting as an agent of a hostile foreign government, it’s not just our responsibility but our goddam sacred duty as citizens to push that envelope as far as we possibly can.Can protesting get you hassled and arrested? Damn right it can - happens every day at demonstrations. But it ONLY happens when you’re doing it in front of police. The disorderly conduct and  “failure to obey” charges police stick on demonstrators are understood by the courts as primarily as a form of crowd control and almost always thrown out. Still, in any kind of protest done in front of police exposes you to a dangerous, and in my opinion unnecessary, degree of hassle and risk, both legally and physically. I’m especially doubtful about getting arrested as a means of political[...]



The People of Iran, Guatemala and Chile Extend Their Condolences...

2017-07-17T13:09:21.298-07:00

Dear American Friends…Please accept our deepest sympathy, and know you have our full support and that it's with the very best of intentions that we say, Payback’s a Bitch, ain’t it ? The transition from sovereignty to servitude isn’t an easy one. As citizens of your own former client states, we know all too well the suffering, indignity and embarrassment that accompany it. We’re happy to answer your questions and hope you’ll consider our knowledge and years of experience just as historically you’ve considered our agricultural and mineral wealth: as valuable resources yours for the taking. We know this is all very new for you, that some of you are probably confused and even a little scared. Many of you are no doubt experiencing feelings of moral outrage, injustice, helplessness, etc… Trust us, we’ve been there. We understand it’s a difficult time and while we don’t want to preach, we do hope you’ll take some advantage of this opportunity to reflect a bit on how your own behavior may have effected the rest of us over the years.We’re not going to lie here: living under a puppet regime can be nasty business and there’s going to be a lot of things you’re not going to like. Although far less rewarding materially than your previous role, you’re bound to find life on this side of the puppet strings to be very rich in terms of being a learning experience, and discover as we have, at least a few silver linings. In that spirit we offer the following bits of advice and random observations we’ve picked up along the way hoping you’ll find them useful.1) Losing Your Sovereignty Is Not The End of the World.  In fact it’s how most of the world lives! Living under a puppet will give you a much better understanding of people from places like Nicaragua, Haiti, Panama, Vietnam, Brazil, Argentina, Vietnam, the Philippines and El Salvador than back when you were the one pulling the strings.  You’ll probably be getting lots of letters like this from many, many nations, so be sure to check your mailbox!2) You Will Quickly Be Able To Recognize Who Can And Cannot Be Trusted.   One of the very few advantages of living under a puppet regime is how easy it makes it to recognize traitors.  Almost invariably, it’s those quickest to question the loyalty of others and loudest in declaring their own that prove to be the very worst of traitors. And yes, we are talking about FOX News. You are probably already learning, just as we did, an important historical constant: People who are betraying their country always do it while waving the flag.3) You’re Are About To Learn a Lot of Things And Many of Them Will Be Painful.  Listen, it was bad enough when you did it to us, and we were barely even industrialized. Frankly none of us can even imagine how shocking and painful this must be for you. You’re America after all,  “Number One!” as you were always so fond of saying…  Okay, sorry - we don’t mean to rub it in - but it’s time for a little tough love.  There are some things we’ve needed to tell you, and now it’s really important that you listen. Despite everything, we’ve always looked up to you guys, and while many of us are just as appalled by what’s happened to you, none of us can say we’re honestly shocked.  We’re not going to say we told you so, because we didn’t. And the reason we didn’t was because you know just as well as we did that you wouldn’t have listened to us anyway.  But don’t think for a second that we didn’t see what was coming. Donald Trump was exactly the same pompous, windbag, idiot clown as the ones you dumped on us… just withou[...]
