Bob Avakian wants blood in the streets.

Members of Bob Avakian’s Revolutionary Communist Party, who have been accused of trying to hijack the Black Lives Matter movement, were planning June 12th “protest” marches across the country to promote their plan to literally overthrow the US government, and to replace America with a New Socialist Republic built on “New Communism”.

RevCom is the vanguard of an armed militant group who gathered in Oklahoma in May to honor the victims of the 1921 Tulsa race riots by pledging to take “a life for a life”, and to start a “real revolution” — when they “defend” themselves — by killing, “… every white cracker in sight … kill ’em, bury ’em, dig ’em up, and kill ’em again!” They also implied that they were prepared for martyrdom, stating that, “You can kill a revolutionary, but you can’t kill a revolution.”

On June 1st, and with short notice, President Biden held an event in Tulsa to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the Greenwood Massacre… inadvertently thwarting whatever plans the group may have had for the day.

Later that same evening, RevCom’s political leaders met in New York to promote their June 12th March for a Real Revolution in the cities of Los Angeles, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Harlem. They expressed that they aimed for global attention, and that they will be marching to police stations with willful intent to “agitate, instigate, and provoke” law enforcement personnel. Their internet audience was encouraged to recruit as many young people as possible for confrontations in their own cities.

RevCom’s President, Bob Avakian, was not present at either event, but their vanguard meeting was live-streamed from his bookstore in Harlem.

Fortunately, things did not go as well as they would have liked.

Their L.A. “March for Revolution” was disrupted by local activists who forced them to disperse, and a key organizer ended up spending most of his time on a bullhorn trying to explain why people should follow Bob Avakian, even though he’s white.

In Chicago, local residents shut them down by confronting organizers with accusations of trying to incite a riot, while planning to be somewhere else “sipping Sangria” when the violence starts.

In Milwaukee, things were shut down before they even started. Known organizers were confronted, in front of their own homes, by activists who accused them of corruption.

In Harlem, they were overshadowed by competing events and demonstrations.

Social media efforts to rally the public to march with them were also greatly hindered by a spontaneous flood of competing hashtags calling for revolution in Nigeria the same day.

Opinion: Critical Race Theory’s Antiracist programs are doing us more harm than good.

I have a huge problem with Critical Race Theory (CRT), not because I think we should ignore racism and social inequalities, but because I think its so-called Antiracist programs are likely to do us more harm than good.

A perfect stranger who has undergone Antiracist training would probably dismiss my discomfort as a product of White Fragility… but I’m not even white. Contrary to popular belief, white people aren’t the only ones who object to CRT. For example, this black mother who doesn’t want our children indoctrinated with genocidal tendencies:

“I’ve spent a lot of time in Central Africa because my dad is from the Congo. And some of the propaganda that’s being spread right now here in Evanston is similar to some of the divisiveness that took place in Rwanda before the massacre.” (The Atlantic)

It may seem like an exaggeration, but — myths of inherent superior/inferior racial status, sectarianism, scapegoating, and collective shame and blame driven by moral imperatives — common themes used by Critical Race Theorists in America today were what turned seemingly ordinary Rwandans into ruthless murderers.

“… sacralization of values interacts with willingness to engage in extreme behavior in populations vulnerable to radicalization. In addition, social exclusion appears to be a relevant factor motivating violent extremism and consolidation of sacred values.” — Scott Atram, How People Become Radicalized

Read more at Scientific American, about how social marginalization and sacred values are key factors for extremism.

Themes used in Critical Race Theory have historically and scientifically proven to radicalize people for violent extremism. Ironic… since its popularity grew out of a desire to reduce racial tensions and violence.

Justice for Black Farmers Act ruled unconstitutional.

A Wisconsin federal judge has ruled that the Justice for Black Farmers Act is unconstitutional, because it attempts to compensate for one type of discrimination by creating another.

The bill was introduced in the Senate by Senators Booker, Warren, Gillibrand, Smith, Warnock, and Leahy as part of the American Rescue Plan, and it would have distributed financial awards to African American farmers and ranchers equal to 120% of the loans and debt they incurred during the pandemic, plus additional grants to help them gain land ownership, irrespective of earnings, wealth or actual pandemic impact.

“Reparations” was not part of the bill’s language, but many viewed it as a land expropriations measure meant to compensate for the “long-term effects of slavery and segregation”.

A lot of people are going to be upset about this, and I am confident that social justice groups will appeal. But is it truly just to replace one system of institutionalized racism with another? And would any amount of reparations ever compensate for injustices that spanned several generations, and for centuries?

The only way to overcome immutable historical grievances is to make sure that those horrible things remain in the past. Slavery and segregation were evil as fuck. Thank God we abolished them both.
