Discussion in 'protest, direct action and demos' started by Das Uberdog, Oct 31, 2010.
My armchair is far from hypothetical . I only have a cat so there's plenty of room.
I did see Tommy after the ding dong and if he staged the whole thing then he's a better actor than he is a pundit.
I just can’t fathom why anti-fascists keep handing the far right propaganda coups. If it’s kosher then he has no need to stage anything.
Yes but why is it on video ?
I don't see how it's a coup.
Because they allowed themselves to be filmed thus handing over the intellectual property rights and narrative over to Lennon and co.
Because someone filmed it?
It hardly places Tommy in a bad light does it?
This is where it gets frustrating. Why does anti fascism have a bus load of back seat drivers? Step up and show us all how it's done. Please.
He runs off , he starts squealing. Maybe you found it impressive.
You need teaching about avoiding being filmed?
He’s painted it as being vastly outnumbered by ghastly ‘antifa’.
Maybe there's dozens of high profile right wingers getting a kicking (a proper kicking, not a crap middle class identity politics kicking like this one) every week off camera and yet no one ever hears about it.
He's hardly going to put a negative spin on it is he?
Kerfuffle rather than ding dong. Anyway how was he?
Yeah, when he rocked up to the conference with the police he was talking about 'ten big blokes in balaclavas'.
Anyway good to see anti fascist turning the tide
Rattled. Short , fat.
Not even close. Nobody is underestimating the scale of the task. Question is , what are you going to do about it?
look mate , its very flattering but I'm not at the moment jumping on a plane back to England to sort this out.What do you suggest?
That doesn't seem to have inhibited the flow of advice up until now.
So what you’re saying is nobody can comment unless they’re currently involved with the AFN?
Good effort, but it was a bit embarrassing, seen worse kickings given out in the playground ffs.
if you read red sky's post again you might not post such a crass response.
yeh but they can't do that AND remain ideologically pure
Everyone's such a fucking hard case.
And why should it?
Yeah thought that might be the (fair!) reaction, but it was quite shit!
Sit there bitching about how everyone's doing it wrong and then abdicate the minute you're asked for your solution? How's that helpful?
Think people have watched too many films. What did you expect , his head to come clean off and sail through McDonald's window?
Separate names with a comma.
