9/11, 9/11, what went down with building 7? It’s a mystery to this day!! That’s right folks it’s 9/11, so we went off on another conspiracy theory episode. The far right is able to weaponize justified mistrust in liberal institutions to further their genocidal political projects, and the left doesn’t have enough power to counter the disinformation. So Martin Noakes keeps cranking out the hits for the antivax cranks. Meanwhile, the post and NYPD are able to work together dox protestors with impunity. In a political climate where fringe groups are being lauded as heroes for murdering protestors, it’s pretty clear what the message is. But hey, young creatives should snag that press where ya can!

We hung out irl in a graveyard and ate watermelon!! I sounds great because ok.glass is an incredible sound tech!! We discuss sticky ways media confuses issues of discrimination away from capitalism, even leftist media! We have an incredible moment of popular uprisings complete with solidarity actions from labor so our course the discourse has to hurl some shit towards trans people. Why talk about unprecedented civil unrest when we can write a bunch of academic drivel for neoliberal billionaires to agree with?!!

Hey friends! Send your confused relatives #8toAbolition. The best the democrats can do is pretend to ban chokeholds, it’s sickening. We must counteract the Deray-ification of activism, support longstanding anti-gentrification tenants rights orgs in your neighborhood. We talk about all that stuff plus the tricky balance of participating in the protests and staying safe from the second covid wave as well as the disagreements between the more communist or more anarchist wings of the left (and I GUESS the social democrats and liberals).

OK and Lucia are back after having to make massive moves during a fucking pandemic. There are de facto evictions happening all over the city right now. Living in the heart of a failed state is pretty overwhelming. People have nothing left to lose, which is fueling the rage the streets. We discuss the landscape and how best to support arrested comrades and families that are continuing to be gutted by lack of healthcare. We also discuss the displays of solidarity for Black Lives Matter among healthcare, transit, and education workers when AFL-CIO leadership has failed. Anyone protecting the police can suck our dicks!
