I believe BLM is just a front group, it brings in donations, ActBlue processes the payments and other groups syphon off the proceeds. More like a money laundering operation under guise of non-profits.

From a letter in the Sheridan Press:
Quote:
In the SP, Caitlin Addlesperger encouraged us to donate. (See Addlesperger's column here.) When one clicks the donate link on the BLM website up comes ActBlue Charities, whose self-proclaimed mission is to “enable Democrats and progressive groups.” Of the millions donated to BLM a large amount reportedly has ended up in the coffers of the Democrat National Committee.
Full disclosure: the link in the original cited article now doesn't go to ActBlue. They keep coming up on the radar, though. These folks are very good at this, and they have a ton of these "shell" operations.

I don't understand why so many people refuse to accept that organizations like these are NOT activists.
They are revolutionaries.

Listen to them.
...go deeper - don't just "listen" to them HEAR what they have to say. They will not stop. They can't be bargained with. If you meet their demands they will move the goalposts and ask for more.

...or you could continue to listen to people like Snuffalupagus or a bunch of retired generals that got their stars by playing the long game through 8 years of Obama activism


Your choice - you be the judge

Yes. They will not stop. They are True Believers™. No silver bullet, no crucifixes, wooden stakes, or garlic amulets. You may not be interested in them but they are most definitely interested in you. As biofuel perhaps. Drive the solution set from that.

Most folks just want to live life and basically be left alone...

...they on the other hand, live for the cause de jour that subverts our western, constitutional republic, and yes capitalist way of life...they are committed...they are pervasive...they are entrenched...they are well funded...they are divisive...subversive little fucks...most are but useful idiots...

...shit, they tell you what they want...when you listen closely...when you truly hear them...hell, the last guy shouted from the bully pulpit of the friggen office of president of the United States...POWER...and THE fundamental transformation of the USA.

...and they are not going away.

If I had to classify ANTIFA in a single term, I’d have to go with “minor sabotage”:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_sabotage

Updated for the digital age, with greater operational altitude and less risk of reprisal.

Slices of the health sector, local government, and state government appear to have also read from the same m8nor sabotage playbook.

Look up "propaganda of the deed"

Apply it to technology today.

Interesting observation - point well taken.

But, I think the phrase “minor sabotage” (particulary the use of the term minor) does a disservice to the reach of the ANTIFA movement.

The term “minor” itself tends to disarm or downplay the group’s activities to the average reader. It lulls them into into thinking these ANTIFA folks have no real influence.

They did, however, shut down free speech at a bastion of free speech (Berkeley)...and numerous other scheduled events at other major universities...not particularly minor. Not minor for the event(s) (and not minor for all those potential future events that never happened), not minor for the speaker(s), not minor for the audience(s), not really minor for the nation and not even minor for those who disagreed with the speakers.

The First Amendment takes a big hit from ANTIFA when they shut down free speech with violence or even the mere threat of violence. Folks do notice.

Regarding the suppression of free speech by the use of actual violence or merely the threat of violence on campus - ANTIFA appears to be a major player.

And as you well know, university campuses are battlegrounds for ideas - unless one group suppresses all discussion - and other groups follow ANTIFA’s lead.

ETA: How’s “Red Anarchists” or “AnarcoCommies” sound ?
