The situation in the Ukraine

The situation in the Ukraine is complex and poorly reported in the west, with most stories framing it as a conflict between pro-Putin forces opposed to EU integration and liberal moderates who want to be a part of the EU. Completely omitted from these narratives are the details concerning Ukranian neo-nazis and Russian imperialists. For a far better account of what’s happening in the Ukraine, let’s turn towards people who are actually on the ground and in the streets.

Our comrades in the Ukraine have crafted these two brilliant analyses. First, this from nihilist.li:

The events in Kyiv’s Independence Square have been planned in advance by the current opposition in Ukraine, with their political masters from Berlin and Brussels. They were publicly announced in March 2013 by the Svoboda leader in an interview for a local paper. In actuality, there is no revolution taking place in Ukraine, but rather a political coup for regime-change – clearing the way for fascist opposition parties and the EU to tighten their hold.

We have seen large demonstrations, cries for (and of) revolution, riot police brutality and an apparent conflict between Russia and the EU, dramatized as a power grab over Ukraine or as a fight for democracy. (1) The people are legitimately fed up with rich, abusive and oppressive oligarchs; but are nowhere near ridding the country of them. A sustained effort to push power towards a coalition made up of conservative, far-right, and ultra-nationalist fascists is being marketed as “European”, “democratic” and liberal. (2)

Kiev’s Autonomous Worker Union has issued a stern condemnation of the neo-nazi seizure of the protests.

Meanwhile, we see that the situation at Euromaidan is fully controlled by the far-right. Ultra-nationalist rhetoric has securely crowded out all other topics there; the only slogan known to the protesters is “Hail to the nation, death to the enemies.” Most of the Neo-Nazi militants are controlled by the Svoboda party, but there are also other groups: UNSO, Tryzub, Social-Nationalist Assembly, etc. They are completely tolerated by the so-called “national democratic” opposition. One of the leaders of the Euromaidan, Yuriy Lutsenko, himself used to lead the Interior Ministry for four years, during which time he did nothing to stop police brutality or disband Berkut and other special forces. Instead, he promised to disperse protesting crowds with tear gas and became notorious for racial profiling of individuals of “Non-Slavic” nationalities and for his phrase: “You can call me a racist if you want.” Now at Euromaidan he publicly expressed his concern about the fate of “40 million educated white Christians.” Other opposition leaders also don’t have anything against the far-right. There are not only rallies towards physical violence but also poetry about “Yids” heard from the stage.

Here’s to a better 2014!

Traditionalist Youth Network Pepper Sprays Itself

Official inquiries are being lodged as to whether the Traditionalist Youth Network staged the attack, but for now, let’s repost this report from South Side ARA:

At about 5 30pm members of the traditionalist youth network (TYN), a fascist organization based out of Indiana, joined by knights party, gathered at 7th and Cherry in Terre Haute, IN. The group was meeting up with supporters before their protest against Tim Wise’s speaking engagement at Indiana State University 3 blocks down.

Within 5 minutes of arriving at the meet-up location, 9 white supremacists were confronted by 3 antifascists as another anti-racist waiting for the protest looked on.

How stupid do you have to be to spray your friends in the face with pepper spray?

How stupid do you have to be to spray your friends in the face with pepper spray?

TYN’s leader Thomas Buhls received 2-3 punches to the face and had his mouth split open. Immediately after, one nazi was dropped to the floor with one punch while Brian Bryant, who hilariously drove 9 hours from Arkansas, threw his sign and ran away screaming as one of the antifascists chased him through the intersection. Another white supremacist also received about 5-6 blows to the head while being held by his shirt. Meanwhile, Thomas Buhls cowardly pulled out his pepper spray and sprayed the uninvolved anti-racist onlooker (also accidentally pepper  spraying Matthew Heimbach LOL!!) as Matt Parrott, who was tossed to the floor, grabbed onto his leg and held it while curling up in the fetal position like a docile child. The anti-racist escaped his hold by punching his way out in self defense but then was later detained by the fascists and arrested. He got out the next morning on a measly misdemeanor battery.

Although the fascists outweighed the antifas, and outnumbered them almost 3-1, they did not manage to land a single punch. For a “militant street fighting force” the fascists were unimpressive and quickly resorted to cowardly pepper spraying someone and palling around with the local authorities.

Needless to say Traditionalist Youth Network did not make it to their protest on time, or in full cadre, nor did they “offer resources” to any students or student groups. After the day was over the antifascists reached their most important goal; to attack white supremacists regardless of the outcome, and to refuse them any safety in organizing.

White supremacist organizing will not go unchallenged.

“How come they just discovered that Golden Dawn is a criminal organization?”

Enraged at government inaction and police complicity in the brutal murder of Pavlos Fissas, fifty thousand protestors swarmed Athens for a march on the Golden Dawn’s headquarters on the 25th of September.

antifa-poster-heraklio-MnblGj

In an act that smacks of political theater and cold on the heels of the murder of Pavlos, the Greek government has finally arrested the leader and more than a dozen senior members and lawmakers of the neo-nazi party Golden Dawn.

From Reuters:

Party leader Nikolaos Mihaloliakos, spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris, three other lawmakers and more than 10 members of the party were arrested on charges of founding and participating in a criminal organization.

“Nothing can scare us!,” shouted a handcuffed Kasidiaris, flanked by hooded police officers carrying machine guns on his way to face a prosecutor.

[...]

The arrests surprised Greeks wary of political theatre in a country where little has been done to rein in a party that is widely viewed as neo-Nazi.

“It’s good that they arrested them, but I’m afraid that we will start killing each other now,” said Dimitra Vassilopoulou, a 58-year old housewife.

“Does the government actually mean it or is it just a tactic to impress us? Why didn’t they do anything when the immigrants were killed? How come they just discovered that Golden Dawn is a criminal organization?”

Trans-Atlantic Failure

Matthew Heimbach

Matthew Heimbach

Like minds think alike, and failures tend to flock together.

Case in point: Matthew Heimbach has reached out to a similarly laughable cadre of poseurs, the New British Union.

Yes, they’re aiming to be the reincarnation of Oswald Mosely’s British Union of Fascists– the Hitler fans whose lasting legacy was running away at the Battle of Cable Street– and they… wait, did we say “they”? Sorry. We meant this one guy, Gary Raikes.

Thanks AFN!

Got to wonder if the NBU only has one member – He called this photo ‘me-003′

… please enjoy this ‘on the buses’  picture of a grown man playing dress up. He’s started a new club called New British Union (NBU). What really makes this photo great is the expression on the guys face – he means business!!! It’s another lunatic group who are hoping to be led to the fascist promised land by the zombie corpse of Oswald Mosley.

The New British Union is probably going to wind up as a footnote in the list of “ridiculous political jokes,” right after George Hutchins’ National Independents Movement. That fact hasn’t gotten in the way of Heimbach, who excreted a typically flowery, tl;dr word salad for the NBU’s website. Take a look for yourself. Please be careful when reading this if you have a full stomach.

Given that the Virginia Flaggers are still friends with Heimbach, we’d like to know how much they appreciate the support of someone who professes to be inspired by Corneliu Codreanu and the Iron Guard– the same fascists who were so consumed with anti-semitic violence that the German wehrmacht had to step in and hold them back.

Let’s close out this post with a tune by Oi Polloi, who know how to deal with fascists:

Cold-blooded murder of Antifa rapper by Golden Dawn operative

We'll never forget you, comrade!

We’ll never forget you, comrade!

Weeks before the International Meeting Against Fascism and Racism in Athens, this happens:

34-year old Antifascist Pavlos Fyssas murdered by Golden Dawn member in Athens

On the night of September 17th, the 34-year old antifascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas (aka Killah P) was murdered by a 45-year old, who openly admitted to the police to being a member of the Golden Dawn.

Fyssas had been with two friends in the area of Keratsini, in Pireaus. He was attacked by approximately 25 members of the Golden Dawn, one of which stabbed him. Fyssas was taken to the hospital in Nikaia, where he died soon thereafter.

Originally, the Golden Dawn had refused any link to the 45-year old. However, in a police raid in his house, his Golden Dawn Party member ID was retrieved from the garbage, as allegedly he had tried to discard it. Up until now, twelve hours after the arrest, the police have yet to release the name or other information about the self-confessed murderer.

Occupied London has been providing updates about this developing situation. Here is a sample of their updates:

Death In June = Fascist Scum In September

Let’s also take the time to highlight the antics of another set of clowns associated with racist heathens: Death In June.

Yes, Death In June are touring again. Circle Ansuz has provided tour dates and a sample letter to send to the venues.

Would you like to have THIS playing at your local club?

Boyd Rice and Bob Heick

Every time this group pops up on the radar, there’s howls from every corner of the internet exhorting people to leave them alone, either because they don’t want to give them any attention or because of some half-baked copypasta about Death In June’s “artistic message.”

Let’s shoot that down right now: their “artistic message” is boring folk music with random, atonal acoustic guitar strumming. Some hipsters decided that its “dangerous” image was marketable and it’s now turned into a lifestyle brand. That’s it for any arguments about their “artistic merit.”

For those of you who are not aware of this group, Death in June is a musical group headed by Douglas Pearce– who is often its only member. Pearce and Death in June have repeatedly collaborated with former American Front member Boyd Rice– Rice could constitute his own entry, but suffice to say, his schtick is to attempt to be as offensive as possible– and their albums frequently feature overtly Nazi imagery, europhiliac themes and material that cheekily and obliquely references Nazi Germany immediately before the war. Pearce has put Death In June material on compilations supporting fascist and neo-nazi organizations and groups, like Romania’s infamous Iron Guard. Its “grinning skull” logo is clearly derived from the logo of the 3rd div. Waffen SS “Totenkopf,” one of its secondary logos (three vertical bars) is, again, the tactical marking of the 3rd div. Waffen SS “Totenkopf” during the Kursk offensive. On stage, Pearce likes to adorn himself in the specific variant of camouflage used by the Waffen-SS from 1944 to 1945: Flecktarn Erbsenmuster.

1944 Erbsenmuster Camouflage and a WWII German Sniper Veil.

Pearce in 1944 Erbsenmuster Camouflage and a WWII German Sniper Veil.

Pearce is, predictably, slippery when it comes to allegations of fascist sympathies. When he’s directly confronted with those types of questions, he pulls out ridiculous non-answers like “I prefer to suck, white, uncircumsised cocks.” Pearce also sticks by the assertion he made in a 1985 interview with Sounds magazine:

“Our interest doesn’t come from killing all opposition, as it’s been interpreted, but from identification with or understanding of the leftist elements of the SA which were purged, or murdered by the SS. That day is extremely important in human history… They were planning execution or overthrow of Hitler, so he wouldn’t be around. We’d be living in a completely different world, I should imagine… It’s fascinating that a few people held the destiny of the world and mankind in their hands for those few hours and let it slip, and it could’ve gone either way.”

Of course, this is a blatant lie. Hitler did not order the execution of Ernst Rohm and the Sturmabteilung because of an assassination plot, they were executed because Hitler saw the SA as a thuggish rival for power, and to punish Rohm’s increasingly embarrassing homosexual lifestyle, which underscores the irony of the openly gay Pearce naming his band after an overtly homophobic event. Immediately after the executions were carried out, the the SS fabricated the entire “assassination threat” story as a means to justify the killings.

Either Pearce has not read a history book in the intervening 28 years, or he’s lying to cover his ass. His “artistic” attempts fall flat on their face and he has a long history of associating with and praising the efforts of fascists and neo-nazis. Oppose this tour.
