ANTI-MUSLIM ADS SHOWING UP IN CHICAGO

E-mail Print PDF

ctaNoted hatemonger Pamela Geller is getting a lot of mileage with her anti-Muslim ads, and with the debut of this crap in Chicago, antifa there are taking notice - and not in a way she would like.

Southside Chicago Anti-Racist Action

On Wednesday, November 14, a series of Islamophobic ads appeared on CTA buses. These ads, paid for by Pamela Geller's anti-Islam group American Freedom Defense Initiative, are similar to those that have sparked controversy in several other major U.S. cities.

How should this situation be dealt with?

As anti-authoritarians, and as folks who, to put it lightly, disregard law in the struggle against oppression, we do not seek for these ads to be removed via any legalistic means. Does this mean we think racism should be tolerated? Hell no. We wouldn't be angered in the least if the CTA refused to run these ads, however, we wish to see a different approach to challenging this Islamophobic propaganda. We would like to see a situation in which people were outraged enough that they would take it upon themselves to deface racist advertisements and silence organized
bigots
.

The racists, by law, can say whatever they want… but they should not be surprised if the people who wish not to live in a racist world do something about it. Folks like those who shut down a gathering of white supremacists in Tinley Park, IL, earlier this year understand this, and should be praised for engaging with the racists directly and not appealing to the state to intervene in their affairs. Reliance on the state weakens the ability of autonomous social movements to bring about the changes necessary to overthrow the rotten systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism that we live under.

We see any attack by the state against any political faction, even ones we disagree with,  as an attack that can be and has been already used against us. We see the state as our enemy just as we do the racists. It's up to us, anti-authoritarians, anti-capitalists, and anti-fascists, to defeat all forms of opposition to a class, free society and an end to white supremacy and patriarchy.

ROT IN HELL!

Jim Traficant, Rot In Hell!

JIM TRAFICANT
EX-CONGRESSMAN, EX-CON, ANTI-SEMITE

1941-2014
Oh, Jim Traficant. The "colorful", "maverick", "populist" congressman from Ohio who died days after a tractor flipped over on him as he tried to park it inside a barn on his family farm (soon to be changed by the conspiracy theorists he palled around with to "assasinated") is being lauded in death by publications like Politico as "our kind of crook"  but when you see that he is also being called "hero of the people" by a neo-Nazi website, pause is in order. Traficant might have been all the adjectives they use about him, but he was a raging anti-Semite that defended Nazi war criminal Demjanjuk and upon being released from prison after being convicted ofbribary, tax fraud, racketeering, among other things, blamed Jews for his incarceration and while he was at it, accused them of running the world. He was a regular around the anti-Semites of note, speaking at events put on by Willis Carto's American Free Press (AFP) and by the band Poker Face. He was also frequented the Tea Party rallies from a few years ago, and when he wasn't there his supporters were there promoting runs for congress, as we saw when they came out to Kent State in 2010. In the video, one supporter said in the video he was no longer involved with AFP, but last summer (that's four years later) he was hawking the launch of a new organization of his through the AFP who on the organization's website as supporting them with office space and support staff in DC. Traficant was a non-entity for the most part, which is why all the talk about him in his passing has been about his colorful tenure as a congressman, but even then, that color was lost on decent people who saw how dark and decrepit he truly was.
