At the bottom, there is a sticker or something? Like saying "something" Anti-civ in gothic letters?

I like the symbolism of Lenin's cracked head and the emptiness inside.

It's not empty, it's filled with tips to thank them for cracking that little red fash skull. We should start a bounty on Lenin heads.

Yesterday, our comrades in Northern California were attacked by anarchists, who served as the unpaid enforcement wing of the capitalist state.

lol at the projection!

Our comrades, including multiple grandfathers and a Red Army veteran...

A Red Army veteran you say. Hmm, let me do quick math. WW2 ended 77 years ago. If this veteran was only 20 at the end of ww2, this would make him 97 years old today. Russian men on average die at the age of 68 years old. So probably not a WW2 veteran, which would definitely be mentioned had this been the case.

Where did this veteran then serve? The occupation of Hungary? Czechoslovakia? Or, most likely, of Afghanistan? Did he perhaps kill people in the Baltics when they demanded autonomy in the 90s? I really want to know!

They're literally quoting Stalin saying anarchists are enemies. Why are they at the event of their enemies?

I think they're so used to anarchodems letting them infiltrate online anarchist spaces to do entryism that they figured they could get away with it in live action too. But they chose the wrong bookfair. Should have picked one sponsored by AK Press, they'd meet them with open arms.

Aww shit, I missed it! I actually give this book faire partial credit for un-tanking me. Little Black Cart table, specifically, lol.

for sure the reason that part of the US has so many good anarchists is down to the influence of LBC

Always a bunch of pasty white boys pretending anarchists did a racist hate crime on "black communists" (pasty white boys). Have they ever gone 5 minutes without trying to hijack blackness to use as a weapon against anti-authoritarians?

Some of the Leninist table were definitely not white, but who cares?

Quoting Stalin, bringing Lenin statues? There is no way they didn't go there to stir up shit.

As a well known anarcho-communist who was at the event, I've decided to issue the following statement for the record...

The primmies who attacked our comrades were completely unsanctioned by the bookfair organizers. They had no right to use violence against the property of peaceful leftists. Their actions were not in service of the leftist cause and their complete disregard for civility, unity and common decency are unfathomable. I condemn this unprovoked and abhorrent attack against the dignity and property of a brave war hero and his comrades.

Yes, you heard that right. The primmies literally attacked a war hero: A veteran of the red army. For hours before the incident, one of the elderly gentlemen at the ML table delighted me and my affinity group with his incredible accounts of his time serving in the Soviet Union during the special operation in Afghanistan.

He's an incredibly brave soul and a true ally in the fight against capitalism. What the primmies did to him and his companions was shameful, maddening, cruel and unconscionable.

After the attack, I apologized to him profusely on behalf of all libertarian leftists and tried several times to retrieve his stolen property from the primmie table but was rebuffed every time. The primmies would not listen to reason. They only understand violence.

I've made a formal request to the organizers to ban all primmies from the bookfair in the future and I hope you'll join me in this petition by emailing them here: https://bayareaanarchistbookfair.com/contact/

I hope we can avoid a repeat of this unmitigated disaster in the future by no-platforming these violent anti-social ideologies.

Did you get to ask this veteran how many Afghans he killed? And whether he enjoyed it?

Chill out Bill Murray

Every property is a theft

Property damage is not violence, it is property damage

Dignity is a liberal invention appealing to respectable politricks

Sorry for your imperialist war heroes, Afghanistan is the Soviet Nam but no baby killer deserves respect

Property damage is not violence, it is property damage

I know we always say this, but I've never really believed it. When an Israeli bulldozer flattens a Palestinian village, obviously it's violence. Property damage is violence. I'm fine with that. I'm fine with property damage. I'm fine with violence. Turning the other cheek is for Christians.

If you wanna go for context, this a zerzan quote to explain the black bloc tatics. He is right in my opinion, trying to plot an equivalence between an apartheid state tearing natives houses to some people trashing Seattle downtown is phallacious as it gets. Maybe what Zerzan didn't tell was that private property is not the same as personal property

They're two kinds of violence. Didn't say they were equivalent. I'm not against trashing Seattle. I'm all for it. I'm just not going to pretend I'm some kind of righteous, non-violent peacenik (like Zerzan) while I'm doing it. If I could bulldoze the whole city to the ground, I would.
