The Emasculation of “Resistance”

Bernie crying like a little bitch.

This image of Bernie Sanders from a late 1960’s Chicago protest has been put out there recently, and it is meant to big up Bernie’s credentials as a heroic resistance fighter. This is what passes for “resistance” in the United States. I’ve seen so many demonstrators resisting arrest by futilely struggling to get free, or by going limp, when the cops snatch them. It seems to be a twisted badge of honor among petty bourgeois liberals or ultra-left radicals to scream and cry and make a big fucking scene when they get arrested. I say have some dignity for Christ sake! I think more stoicism is called for in this situation. It doesn’t do any good for movement-building or for your own personal well-being to resist arrest and antagonize the police.

Is this image really inspiring to the masses? Is it going to encourage people to rise up and join the movement? I think not . . . and I think that’s the entire point.

    If Sanders is a ‘socialist’, then I must be Joseph Stalin.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Why anyone would back Bernie Sanders is a complete and utter mystery to me since he caved like a bitch to the demands of the DNC to step aside and allow Hillary “never saw a drone she didn’t like” Clinton to get the nomination the last time around and look at what we’re dealing with. I admit that I abstained from voting because I was not going to vote for Trump and I could not hold my nose and vote for Clinton; just wasn’t going to happen. And I do believe that the Democrats are going to make an even bigger mistake THIS time around because they never learn!

    Yep, that’s pretty much the way I see it too.
