Spanish language status in the USA Anonymous 07/28/2020 (Tue) 01:38:15 No. 724786 [Reply] [Last]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language_in_the_United_States Getting Spanish recognised as an official language in any US state would accelerate the disintegration of the USA and improve diplomatic ties with Cuba. This is a very reasonable goal that will go a long way to advancing international socialism and undermining the cultural and linguistic hegemony of the USA both in the Americas and around the world. By the end of this thread, I want an American Anon to post a private member's bill on making Spanish an official language in their state. Any legislator who resists can be social-media-convicted of racism and cancelled.
>>724786 >Getting Spanish recognised as an official language in any US state would accelerate the disintegration of the USA and improve diplomatic ties with Cuba LOL no you'll get CHI flavored imperialism tho
>>724786 >Getting Spanish recognised as an official language in any US state would accelerate the disintegration of the USA Why necessarily? I can sort of agree it would if it happened on a federal scale but just one state? I don't think it would do much at all.
>>724802 You're right. Politics is always all or nothing, and if you don't get total control of the federal government immediately, you should just give up and play some vidya.
>>724840 Quirky sarcasm dog, but one state recognizing Spanish as an official language wouldn't accelerate anything. It would simply make most people happy and only piss of a minority (the size of this minority would vary from state to state). Nothing of actual significance towards the disintegration of the US come out of such an insignificant event.

The Communist Party of Texas (CPUSA affiliate) in the 1930s advocated bilingual instruction in all Texas schools in areas where Spanish speakers comprised a significant portion of the population and that seemed cool. Also Emma Tenayuca was based.

Originally from the peasant class, which I guess fits in discarded, but we were basically serfs. Moved to the city and graduated to wage slave.
Discarded, but wage slave would be worse and I will never be above that.

This chart would be a lot more interesting if there was some content relating to social mobility. Also the thing is missing lumpens, failed/failing business owners, and people who are lucky enough to exist outside the class system like co-op workers or homesteaders.

Renaud Camus Anonymous 07/26/2020 (Sun) 23:35:20 No. 721880 [Reply] [Last]
Can any frog-anons redpill me on pic related? How influential is he in france? Why american and european alt right like him so much? is his theory bullshit or does he have a point?
1 post omitted.
Does he have any relation to Albert Camus?
>>722455 no he invented this: >The Great Replacement (French: grand remplacement), also known as the replacement theory, is a white nationalist far-right conspiracy theory which states that, with the complicity or cooperation of "replacist" elites, the white French population—as well as white European population at large—is being progressively replaced with non-European peoples—specifically Arab, Berber and sub-Saharan Muslim populations from Africa and the Middle East—through mass migration, demographic growth and a European drop in the birth rate. Scholars have generally dismissed the claims of a "great replacement" as being rooted in a misreading of immigration statistics and unscientific, racist views. >While similar themes have characterized various far-right theories, the term "Great Replacement" was popularized by the French author Renaud Camus in his 2011 book Le Grand Remplacement (English: The Great Replacement). It specifically associated the presence of Muslims in France with potential danger and destruction of French culture and civilization. Camus and other conspiracy theorists attribute this process to intentional policies advanced by global and liberal elites (i.e., the "replacists") from within the Government of France, the European Union, or the United Nations, and describe it as a "genocide by substitution". He even goes full autist quoting Frantz Fanon and claiming that he's actually an anti colonial fighter by preventing immigration.
>>721880 might be popular in aut-right circles, never heard of him, although his theory is a popular subject of mediatic conservatives retards like zemmour
The great replacement is real guys, Europe is going to be a whole 10% Islamic by 2050, LITERAL GENOCIDE.

Post studies about capitalism and socialism I'll start with a great one: https://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/pdf/10.2105/AJPH.76.6.661 Marxism is a science The alt-right are really good at finding lots of studies to back up their beliefs (although in many cases these studies are flawed/don't explain their points) It's time that we started gathering up studies and papers

>>724557 >literally the first study in their copypasta directly contradicted their claim note that nobody said they read tons of studies, just that they post them also yeah, it's entirely possible that they've stopped doing that tactic recently frankly i'm not that good at keeping up with the specifics of internet nazi posting >>724561 specifically, i'd like someone to figure out how much labor time is actually necessary to produce the necessities of life that is, if we weren't handing our surplus labor over to service fictitious debt or fuel the global war machine or do bullshit jobs or etc etc etc
>>724625 (me) like for example, by comparing government spending to gdp we see that the state is consuming literally half of labors productive output that fact alone implies that you could cut labor hours by ~half without any reduction in the quality of life and that's not even mentioning all the bullshit jobs outside the state sector but i've never seen anyone break it down further and figure out even roughly how much superfluous labor, material, energy, etc is being expended

8ch died and unfortunately there were many funny /leftypol/ posts that I forgot to screencap but today I remembered a post and I want to look for one specific greentext. Basically what happened is the OP claimed that they were accepted as an intern into some neocon-leaning think tank in America, and he was engaged in an active trolling operation throughout the length of his internship. Every time they had a general meeting he would shill for Assad and Putin (since back then the Syrian civil war was a hot topic and they were mulling a broader intervention) and basically tried his best to cast doubt on all the arguments for pulling another libya, and he said that he was starting to get weird looks from his co-workers. Idk if he made any other posts but it was one of the funniest greentexts I saw and I'm wondering if anyone saved it.

Why do you still vote? Anonymous 07/24/2020 (Fri) 21:47:51 No. 716136 [Reply] [Last]
Voting isn't political activism, it's a dead end. Not only is the bourgeoisie well organized to prevent any meaningful change, but also involvement in electoral politics inevitably involves all parties in the business of imperialism. It is crucial to remember that the profits of imperialism afford luxuries to the workers of the imperialist countries at the expense of the Global South. The masses must know and understand that their power comes from solidarity, direct action and the barrel of a gun, not voting for your next oppressor.

Depending on who you ask, "northern anatolians" are white. And even if one says they're not, Ashkenazis have lived in Europe for centuries.

Pan-slavism Anonymous 07/26/2020 (Sun) 22:09:14 No. 721755 [Reply] [Last]
Pretty simple question here. Would you consider pan-slavic nationalism reactionary or revolutionary? In Marx's day the most progressive thinkers around him aimed to unite Germany. During the 20th century many great African and Arab comrades aimed to unify their peoples under the banner of anti-imperialism. Irish national liberation to this day is generally endorsed by the left. Wouldn't it only be logical to support slavs doing the same? Have our countries not essentially been colonized by western capital since 1991? Why do we allow the right to have a monopoly on this political project?

>>721910 This, and Czechoslovakia too, down to the point of using the same "pan-slav" color scheme, and even having variations of the same pan-slavic song as their national anthems - Hej, Slovane! If you read early 20th century left-wing literature, like Hasek's The Good Soldier Svejk, pan-slavism, stated or not, definitely played a revolutionary role especially in Slavic lands under imperial occupation. You have music like the Glagolitic Mass, which despite being written by secular composer from a largely Catholic culture, paid tribute to a joint Slavic history. I think the term pan-slavism refers to the secular, left-leaning version of slavic trans-national solidarity, and usually, the Czarist Great Russian chauvinist version of it is dubbed "Slavophilia" in most sources I've read. My general opinion as a non-slav is that Slavs, regardless of their geographic clustering, are more similar to one another culturally and even economically than any other European ethno-linguistic group, and while I wouldn't encourage them to make a geographic corridor through my country, I think they probably would be better off in some supra-national federation rather than (no pun intended) balkanized as they currently are. I definitely think Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia were great countries and preferable to the current setup, and see them more as failures of joint identity building rather than state building; to my mind there's hardly any difference between a Czech and a Slovak or a Serb and a Croat and see no reason why these regional identities had to be maintained as they were rather than jointly assimilated.
>>722040 Germany literally destroyed the eastern blocs post cold war industry and turned eastern europe into their puppets again. every slavic country west of russia has germany as it's biggest importer because it has made them dependants. I love germany so much I want there to be two of them.
>>722112 Enlightened centrist take
>>721755 Collapse of Yugoslavia proves pan-Slavism is a failed meme.
>>723575 This, basically. True for the others as well. >I love germany so much I want there to be two of them. Couldn't agree more >>723653 <Collapse of Yugoslavia proves Titoism is a failed meme. ftfy
