SYRIA, FASCISTS, AND MISERABLE CONDESCENDING LEFTISTS
The Syrian civil war/revolution has become sort of the backdrop, default position on the evening news. When there is a spot to fill, well, you can always stick in Syria.
I'm sticking in Syria today, but not as a default. I sticking in two pieces actually. One which is a follow up on a long ago story I did about the fascist support of the Assad regime. The last time I wrote about this is was mostly because I was sick of being accused of being some sort of zionist, imperialist stooge for not going "all out" for Mr. Assad and company. You know the rap, since the USA opposes the Assad regime (well, maybe, well sort of, well not much really), anyone who also opposes Assad must be...fill in the blank. So, I threw out this piece about the fascists supporting Assad with the satiric accusation that therefore anyone who supported him must be a fascist.
Since then, the fascist more and more have jumped on board with the Assadists...and since then many of us who don't like the Assads of the world still get called names.
Then I have this second piece which while it ostensibly is about Syria is really also my way of blasting, just a little, those textbook, facebook, pure leftists/Marxists/communists/anarchists who sit in their classrooms or at their computers and drone on with sanctimonious and dogmatic drivel about who is a revolutionary and what is a revolution while being unable to recognize a revolution if it came up and hit them upside the head. You know the type.
So here we go.
The first piece below is from an interesting site I just discovered, Tahrir-ICN. The second is from surprise, surprise, the same place.
