There's a communist newspaper I can buy from my local supermarket, at least three different leftist groups speak openly and distribute literature without any fear of being moved on or threatened, demographically my city has probably never been less white. Without exception, every communist I have encountered, and they're out pretty much every single weekend, is explicitly anti racist and concerned with LGBT rights. There's a cross section of Stalinists, Trotskyists and IRA sympathisers that make up the bulk, but they all have so called 'neo liberalism' in common. I personally think it's a made up term and leftism is leftism, but lets just say it isn't…33 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
I've never spoken to a leftist in real life who isn't explicitly for state imposed mass immigration. They might frame it as a human right to enter countries, as a humanitarian thing, or as a response to white xenophobia. But it's something they universally get behind. I should stress, they don't care about black nationalism and would piss themselves before going near the local black Hebrew Israelite cranks. They just hate the 'fash' and the fash are white.
Leftism is ubiquitous in my world, if I travel further North to the nearby university town, it goes off the scale. Like, toppled monuments and Karl Marx debate group flyers on every post.
So, as a rule I don't talk to these people, unless they approach me first. I'd love to hear some leftypol talking points. What conversation would you have with the 'revolutionary student union' guy who is flying a rainbow flag and BLM banner. The Marxist pamphlet guy who wants to 'decolonise' education? Let's say that stuff isn't 'real leftism', how would I argue that to them? I don't want to just call them 'neoliberals', I want to go into some depth with it and leave them uncertain of their own worldview.
No, I call them leftists, this place calls them neoliberals.
If you think you can explain neoliberalism in terms of race or sexual orientation I dunno what to say. In fact you're probably a neoliberal, and I don't mean that as an insult. Most people are, one way or another, following that old adage of the ideology of the times being that of the ruling class's ideology.
