30 Fascists In A Van - follow up

What’s happening next?

It’s a thread.

Anybody suggesting “let them fight,” is missing the part where that makes cops even more militarised and right wing activists more violent.

Glad you threaded this. It would be nice to see a national discussion of the tension that seems to be arising between groups (mainstream, and some right, and left) pressuring police to do their jobs through legislative action and public shaming, and groups on the right engaging in threats of physical violence when the police actually do the jobs their supposed to do.

Maybe the cops will start taking these boneheads seriously now?

Also, 30 Fascists in a Van sounds like it should be a song for an anti-racist oi band!

The police need to figure out that if they actually do their jobs, protect the public, and enforce the law fairly in a non-racist manner, then they’ll be targets of these boneheads.

I’m only calling them boneheads now.

It sounds like a campfire singalong. In each verse one terrorist meets his untimely fate and you count down for the next verse.

As Zack De La Rocha warns, some of those that work forces are boneheads (*). It’s clear that RATM’s warning is largely accurate; and I wonder and worry whether bringing state violence to bear against white supremacist groups will result in meaningful change.

I can only assume that white supremacist forces within the system of policing will work to undermine these sorts of enforcement efforts when (if) they ratchet up. Will the policing complex eventually be forced to acknowledge and confront its “overtly” white supremacist complement? Will policing ever meaningfully address the more systemic dimensions of racism that it embodies?

30 Fascists in a van,
Think things are going fine,
One doxxed himself on Instagram
And then there were 29

29 Fascists in a van
On their way to hate,
One tied himself up with flexicuffs,
And then there were 28

Etc etc

Here’s my weak attempt:

30 FASCISTS IN A VAN
SHOULD HAVE FORMED A SKA BAND
INSTEAD THEY TRIED TO PICK A FIGHT
ONE TOOK A PUNCH AND SAID GOODNIGHT
ALL THE REST TURNED TAIL AND RAN
29 FASCISTS IN A VAN

OI OI OI

(etc.)

Always reference rage against the machine when talking about cops being fascists!

@NukeML I would gif something at this perfect comment, but my posting abilities are on the fritz with regards to gifs and such like… Perfect work, though. I knew you lot would come through.

The real tragedy here is that someone thought to include air holes in the back of the moving truck.

If right-wingers think Antifa is hiding under every rock, perhaps they’re more likely to mobilize against each other by mistake :thinking:
