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!

Neal Hoesley - RIH

NEAL HORSLEY
ANTI-ABORTION EXTREMIST

1944-2015
This happened a few months back, but we just found out about it this week. And we would be remiss to give this guy the proper sendoff he so richly deserves, since we owe him so much. Otis O’Neal “Neal” Horsley, Jr is the former drug dealer turned extremist anti-abortion activist that gave us a website called the Nurenburg Files. It was a list of abortion providers with their names and addresses and when one died - or was killed by one of someone Horsley was down with – he would put a line through their names. Despite protests and lawsuits, the courts ruled he was well within his First Amendment rights to do so. Add Sean Hannity little stunt on a 2001 program where he attacked one of those providers and treated Horsley with kid gloves, and we get an epiphany: if it was legal for some scumbag like Horsley to do this, we can do the same to the right wingers and fascists that we document, and hence the practice began – launching our Rogues’ Gallery section like a rocket into infamy! We have since slowed down the practice (not stop – some folks warrant it more than others), and Horsely – who lost on appeal when courts ruled his website did constitute a threat - went into obscurity, especially after he appeared on Hannity’s show and admitted to having sex with farm animals (“When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule.") We had even taken him out of the Rogues' Gallery because he was neutered sufficiently, and now, thanks to reportedly liver cancer, Horsley has been cooking along with the other fake Christians since April 13, although his site is still up. We however think his greatest contribution was to us in helping to give us the freedom to do what we need to do, so this just might be the first time a Rot in Hell sendoff comes with a thank you!
