Today the city of Charlottesville, after right-wing militias and Nazis had been driven out by brave antifascists, has become the scene of an American terror attack. Copying the same methods notoriously used by ISIS in Europe, a car has plowed into defenseless protesters.
Already one person, an IWW member, has been confirmed dead.
The attack was caught completely on camera, flying bodies and intense screams filling the air of what had previously been a joyous moment. This attack was planned and no mere “accident.”
The liberal establishment, fearing how such an attack might galvanize Leftist organizing, has already spread vicious lies in an attempt to paint the attack as “self-defense.”
Long time activists have come to expect this, and note it is a usual tactic used by the State whenever events transpire that might fuel revolutionary fires: take the event and shift the narrative, paint it in terms and language that fit the dominant ideology and preserve power.
Luckily capitalist and liberal lies are already being refuted, because WE ACTUALLY HAVE THE FUCKING VIDEO.
The terrorist attack in Charlottesville has proven that the far-right, protected by the dogs and servants of the State, will go to any lengths to enforce its twisted vision of White Supremacy. Antifascists, Anarchists, Communists, and radicals of all stripes must now understand that every protest could be your last and that the forces of Fascism are playing for blood.
And if you think the State gives a flying fuck you are severely mistaken.
The Left is under physical attack and these attacks have already claimed a life. The police do not care and will no doubt side with the racists who aimed to slaughter as many people as possible. How we organize today and how respond to such an attack in the future will determine how many more mangled and crumpled bodies we are forced to endure.
ANTIFASCISTS! ANARCHISTS! Blood now pours in the streets! Will you allow this to continue or will you organize for self-defense?
