Nah I think the reoccuring theme here is that I don't like or trust you. I follow all kinds of people who hate a! & co. who would love nothing more than to have a good reason to cancel him or whatever, and again, you're literally the only person I've ever seen accuse them of transphobia.

Oh I thought you were saying the opposite, that they are to trying to appeal to transphobes or something. Parsed your comment wrong.

Antifa people get mad at him about atassa, and I think he also "platformed" national anarchists before that. Plus he gets a lot of blame for the anti-left sentiment among many anarchists, sorta the poster boy for nihilism.

And he might be a bit of a dick irl?

How are they using it to bolster readership? I listen to all the anews/lbc stuff, read tons of it, and have literally never seen transphobic shit from them. Haven't even seen accusations of it other than you. It's not much of a performance if that's what they are doing.

And Aragorn's response to the thread:

  1. LBC was invited, then wasn't (although that wasn't clear until decoded 6 months later), and then we talked to friends who weren't going (but were listed) and intended to take their space (as we had their material with us).
  2. There were two bookfairs. A very small group of tablers and a larger group (30ish) of friends (who were young and oogle-y). The friends seemed to have a good time. They had meals, presentations, and lots of information from "the organizers". The tablers mostly had none of that.
  3. At 10:15 (when I arrived for 10:00 am event) on Saturday all of the tables were occupied (clearly set up the night before). Occupied with zines. Mostly the friendship group bookfair didn't have people sitting at their tables. Just zines.
  4. I setup on empty couch and the area in front of it. I may have moved a backpack or two to an otherwise unoccupied area.
  5. None of the friendship group talked to me directly during day one (or two). I did approach a few of them (like "the organizer") but received evasive answers. I had a great time otherwise. Thanks for asking.
  6. Day two I saw that the Atassa heist happened about 10 minutes before the live podcast (https://anarchybang.com/podcast/episode-19-green-scare-anarchist-bookfair/). Also of note. If there were 30 people in the friendship group they all left (or maybe 28/30) prior to podcast. I had asked for people to record plugs for their project/etc. This friendship group stayed at a distance from me (and their bookfair) for the rest of day two.
  7. In addition to stealing the Atassa's, "someone" also pepper sprayed my tent (but I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't talked about on the internet), and someone stuffed things into my gas tank (discovered 50 miles down the road). At the very least they were clogging my tank (I didn't notice until gas was pooling at my feet) but as I heard more things falling in (like marbles) and the material I scraped out was some sort of tied together plastic material...
  8. I have been driving the past 24 hours (ie unavailable).
  9. It is also worth noting that I alone the entire weekend. I was inviting conversation. I was not wearing a giant knife, waving a bat around, or surrounded by my 30 closest friends. If that was an opportunity to get in my face and tell me what for...

God damn what a clusterfuck that comment section is. Aragorn's comment on the podcast that he felt like he was in high school there feels entirely accurate. Anarchists are so embarassing sometimes.

Huh didn't know 1917 was a trans girl.

Agree with bloodrose and galdra about this. No need to go so hard at a teenager who's a good member of the community. Not a troll, debates in good faith, been around a while, etc.

I'm beginning to suspect that shift work isn't the most healthy thing in the world.

Went to one of the newly legal weed shops today. Pretty cool. Still hate the system we have tho.

Yes they do. I really hate the "the left doesn't x" formula. It's a big incoherent tent with a lot of terrible people under it. You can't gatekeep a group with no fixed boundaries, identity, definition, or universally shared values. Name a fucked up belief, I'll find you a leftist that supports it, probably tons of them.

Pretty good read. I didn't think this was the sort of thing Dark Mountain puts out tho. Has anyone read any of their journals? I'd only seen their manifesto before this, and would have expected a different angle on Ted.
