OP, while I certainly get the concern, looking at the clip it seems a little different than this tweet would lead you to believe. It’s certainly badly phrased, and beyond annoying that he’d use the word “anarchists” as a stand in for like “rioters and looters” here (people who are actually committing crimes), but it seems extremely uncharitable to have the take away that he’s actually saying that just for ideologically being an anarchist he’s going to have you locked up.

I believe he's going off the traditional mainstream view of anarchists, where they wanna end government by force, so by that definition they would be inheritantly violent. Which they aren't of course, at least not all.


If he does that then I'll be against it. Until we have actual proof that he will arrest non violent protesters I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

"The Revolution™ will legalized."

This sounds an awful lot like "the state will wither away" logic; this one will go full ML by the end of the year.

"Let's just wait until he's our ruler for 8 years so we have actualy proof that he will arrest us"

Arrest versus getting dragged into unmarked vehicles and carted around for a while with no due process or identification?

Several days ago, Vaush said "Arrest would be PREFERABLE."

Still is.

Lesser prisonism

That is the best we have, Biden doesn't seems like a lunatic facist, he is weak and ineffectual. If we get him into office we could bully the shit out of him, he has already made huge concessions in environmental policies.


We mainly have to push for the democratic party to move to the left through the house and Senate and then they can badger him with more and more left wing ideals.

The US has long been run by the military with presidents offering very little pushback. Truman was likely the first and it's just continued since. Having a weak, ineffectual president could be even worse than Trump from an imperialist perspective. Trump is obviously a piece of garbage but he actually tried to withdraw from Afghanistan. Biden wouldn't.

It's a waste of time and energy that could be spent progressively?

If it's entertaining to me to mock leftists then it's time well spent.
