16 June 2018. Solidarity… NOT Theoretical Purity… The Need of the Present Hour

________________________

The pressing need today is solidarity, not theoretical purity. If you find those willing to break unity for the sake of a theoretical point, you’ve found one of two things. They’re either self-centred assholes or they’re provocateurs. The times are dire… we must all stand together or The Man will most assuredly hang us all separately. Have a care with those who attempt to argue the point…

10 June 2018. Today Is International Friendship Day… A Red Salute to Comrades Everywhere

________________________

Solidarity always trumps theory… always. A red salute to all anti-Empire comrades. Don’t let the jaw-jacking armchair lefties get you down. They’re never around when the shit hits the fan, are they? Look for the stand-up people… they’ll never let you down or punk out. Someone who’s on the picket line, who’s there when you need them, is more of a comrade than an overeducated moron stuffed full of theory who doesn’t stand up when the situation calls for it.

10 June 2018. Brother Ajamu Speaks

___________________________

We must bring in the UN to play a role in a sustainable peace process in Syria since it’s clear that the USA, Russia, and Israel are playing a cynical game in Syria that won’t result in peace and national reconciliation.

******

The Tamimi family continues to suffer from Israeli brutality. This is why the focus has to be on US imperialism because this criminality couldn’t occur without US support for the Zionist apartheid project. https://goo.gl/ZZHYiK

Did people read the incredible comments from Obama about being too early because the dumb masses just weren’t ready for his version of enlightened politics? The only difference between Trumps’ megalomania and Obama’s is that Obama is supposed to be the nice one.

******

The USA brings a threat of war, suffering, and insecurity to every region of the world, yet activists in the USA continue to give political cover for US aggression. Opposing war and militarism isn’t an add-on… it’s a position fundamental to being a human being.

Brother Ajamu On Phony-Baloney “Leftists”

I happen to be a religious believer, many left people are. This isn’t proselytism… it’s simply how I’d express this issue. If we disagree, let’s do so in a spirit of kamaradschaft and solidarity. I do daresay that we agree on opposing the Empire’s aggression wherever it occurs.

I got to the Left Forum 2018 only to run into some silly so-called leftists passing out flyers denouncing me as a supporter of Assad. Look imperial left, anti-US imperialism isn’t supposed to be selective based on whether or not you like the nation that’s in the crosshairs of empire. Moreover, some black revolutionaries reserve the right to see and relate to the world based on our own interests and experiences; we see US imperialism as the number one global contradiction. Now, you might have a different agenda and might even believe that the USA can be on the right side of history and a force for good… that isn’t our experience and the experience of millions globally.

Editor:

You run into them all the time… armchair leftists proclaiming that we shouldn’t aid the victims of the Empire because they’re not “pure” enough. The task imperative for our time is opposition to the Empire. Therefore, we should aid all those standing against it, even if they’re not “left”. The pressing objective is opposition to the Empire and the defeat of its neoliberal crapitalist agenda; all else is nought compared to that. If you bleat about how imperfect this or that Imperial victim is, you’re on the Empire’s side, and I, for one, won’t be silent. I confide that I’m not alone in thinking that way.
