Hello! We aren’t going to build a winning leftist coalition by defending white supremacy. The Paglia poisoned ladies of Vice 2 are at it again, this time in an asinine interview in a magazine that explicitly exists to undermine leftist politics. We’ve previously covered nihilism and insidious individualism on the left (Paglia ep, Vice 2 ep), this time we tie ideology to the dehumanization of undocumented people in the US. Please stay tuned til the end to hear about the Caban election in Queens featuring a PSA about provisional ballots with Joey!!
*UPDATE* ICE has cancelled all hearings for Monday June 25th at 201 Varick in response to #OccupyICENYC. Follow @MACC_NYC for updates. There are other sites of deportation in the city the protest may move to. Apologies for the sound quality of this episode, we decided it felt better to just continue to hold space at the occupation (please see the previous episode for our conversation with some of the organizers). Lucia is back from Berlin and imparts some insights from collectives over there; from the recently raided anarchist library Kalabalik to the direct action performance art group Center for Political Beauty. We also get into tricky intersections of rainbow capitalism and the potentials of queer liberation and socialism (for more come to this discussion: https://www.facebook.com/events/187818712052570/) Oh, and we started a Lupin the Third section.
