Removed Comment Why do you people keep attacking "patsocs"? They are literally right! Since Stalin came to power socialist patriotism has been the norm in communist movements, including in the USA. Just look at CPUSA meetings, from the 1920s to the 1990s there were US flags and pictures of Abraham Lincoln everywhere. Stalin, Mao, Castro, Kim Il Sung, soviet textbooks, CPUSA articles, they all say this, only communists are truly patriots, since the bourgeoisie sells out the people and the country for profit. Were Mao, Castro, Stalin and the CPUSA fascists? Ofc no! And its fine if you wanna disagree with this for whatever reason, its fine if you dont like the US flag, but dont deny reality, dont smear people who support what you support. Who do you have more in common with, anarkiddies who say "patriotism bad", "Putin is a fascist" and "China is state capitalism", or "patsocs" who support Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, etc? This is getting ridiculous man come on. Im not american, so i can tell you patriotism is the norm in all communist parties worldwide, only americans deny this. The Communist Parties of Spain, Greece, Italy, Russia, Moldova, Finland, etc all say this. Edit: To further prove my point, here is Joe Sims, General Secretary of CPUSA, defending socialist patriotism and rejecting "antipatriotism" in a 2014 article on the subject: "Yes, there is a such a thing as working-class patriotism and it is our duty to uphold and defend it while distinguishing it from the false patriotism of the ruling class and particularly its extreme right. I am discussing here the substance of the matter of patriotism."

Removed Comment Yes, that is him. How is this a bad position? Stalin banned abortion and promoted quite traditionalist family ideas. Is he not a Comrade? What is more important, worker solidarity and antiimperialism, or these specific social issues? You wont make a revolution by excluding anyone who is slightly more socially conservative, especially in a country as conservative as the USA. In Russia the Communist Party also opposes gay marriage, are they not Comrades too? What is more important, class struggle or a few specific social issues? Legalizing abortion and gay marriage wont magically create a revolution, only class struggle will. Once we have socialism and economic progress more people will be convinced of these issues, which is why class struggle and worker solidarity must be the main focus. Class struggle and economic progress will lead to social progress. Cancelling anyone mildly conservative wont lead to revolution, it will lead to division among US workers and strenghten the bourgeoisie. Or do you think you will make a revolution without the support of all the workers in the red states? You need all workers on your side, both blue and red. by @SaddamHussein24@lemmygrad.ml reason: "Stalin was a traditionalist"

Removed Comment How am i a chauvinist? Also who even mentioned the woman question? The discussion was about abortion and gay marriage, which i both support, but saying that workers who dont agree with you on that should be shamed and excluded is petty bourgeois elitism, "only the smart intellectuals are good enough for the revolution", "that ignorant conservative rabble should just shut up", thats how you people talk, but im the bigot, ridiculous. by @SaddamHussein24@lemmygrad.ml reason: Defending LGBT and abortion rights is "petty bourgeois elitism"

Removed Comment Thanks! Most of the people here shut their brains and attack you whenever you say the word "patriotism", they dont even listen. They only call you a bigot, homophobic, fascist, nazbol, class reductionist 10 times over, no listening. You should go to Caleb Maupins youtube channel and see for yourself what he actually has to say, and then make an opinion. I dont even agree with him on everything, but to say that hes "right wing nazbol fascist" is ridiculous. https://youtube.com/c/CalebMaupinTV by @SaddamHussein24@lemmygrad.ml reason: Defending maupin

Removed Comment There you continue, using this "land" unmarxist term. This is not a marxist term, its a classless term, land can be both private and personal property (defining them through Marxs definition of those 2 terms in The Communist Manifesto). Land that you just live in yourself while owning it yourself too is personal property, land that you are renting or extracting resources from is private property, since it produces wealth. By definition, it is the bourgeoisie only who own private property, this is basic marxism. Yes, i know what the labour aristocracy is, but the labor aristocracy is not a static reality (nothing is, this is basic marxism too, reality is constantly changing), the labor aristocracy wont last forever, otherwise you are saying that revolution is impossible in the first world, which Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc never said and is a ridiculous statement to say. If the labor aristocracy is static and eternal, then what about Western Europe? We are definetely mostly labor aristocracy, but here there are no big groups of colonized and enslaved people (who according to you are the only proletarians) like in USA. So what about then? Who is the vanguard then? Noone? There will be no revolution ever in Europe or what? This is not marxism, this is undialectic, i dont understand how you dont see it. How is what i say "class collaborationism"? You are literally saying that the labor aristocracy is bourgeoisie. Strange bourgeoisie that owns nothing and depends on selling their labor to their bourgeois bosses to survive. J Sakai is a maoist. Maoist as in loved the Gang of 4 and the Cultural Revolution and thought Deng Xiaoping was a "revisionist who restored capitalism in China" and that USSR was revisionist and capitalist too. Only maoists like him, CPUSA and most US ML communist parties have denounced him. "Israeli settlers should be given land" i never said that. All i said is that israeli workers have interst in socialism and destruction of israeli genocidal regime just as palestinians do long term (notice LONG term here, the benefits of imperialism to the labor aristocracy dont last forever). Palestinians should be given back their land (as in their country, natural resources, culture and means of production), but that doesnt mean deporting or killing all israeli workers, this notion is antimarxist, what do you think "workers of the world unite!" means? Palestinians and israeli workers together will destroy the imperialist israeli bourgeoisie, give back their homes to all the palestinians evicted, repay damages to all the palestinians victims of israeli genocide, transform the means of production in public property and establish socialism to create wealth and prosperity for all. Ofc the palestinians, just like the black and indigenous in USA, have a right to rise up in arms against their "settler" worker peers if they refuse to be with them, noone is disputing this. But it is obvious that "settler" workers have LONG term the same interests as the colonized, and thus should stand with them, bringing more strenght to the anticolonial revolution and creating a more harmonious and brotherly socialist society after the revolution. I mean i dont understand, what do you think "settler" workers should do, side with the bourgeoisie until they get defeated and killed or deported by the colonized revolutionaries? How is that desirable? Shouldnt they stand in solidarity with the colonized? And what better to show this to them than to make them see that their interest lays in socialism, antiimperialism and internationalism, that oppressing the colonized doesnt benefit them, that their struggle and the colonized peoples struggle is the same struggle, against the same enemy, the bourgeoisie? How is this a bad thing? by @SaddamHussein24@lemmygrad.ml reason: Defense of Israeli settlers: "All i said is that israeli workers have interst in socialism and destruction of israeli genocidal regime just as palestinians do long term (notice LONG term here, the benefits of imperialism to the labor aristocracy dont last forever).

Removed Comment Stupid comparison. First of all you are not an FLN revolutionary (despite how much you may dream of being one), you are just a guy who spend too much time online like me, so im not deriding any revolution by exposing your unmarxist analysis. Now getting to the serious part, Algeria was a much different situation than USA or even Israel. The french population was an extremely small and rich minority (in Algeria settlers were 10% population, while in USA they are 60% and in occupied Palestine they are 70% in Israel and 30% in the West Bank, totally different situation) , they all owned vast amounts of capital, they were all bourgeois, not even petty bourgeois, middle-big bourgeois. Thus, there were no french workers to unite with. Despite this, FLN didnt just proclaim all french to be "evil settlers that must be exterminated", even though they were settlers, and instead tried to negotiate with them, begging them independence and even offering to allow french big capital to stay. But France refused, they send fascist gangs to kill algerian freedom fighters, so they had no option but to fight back, something that i explictly defended also in the case of Israel and USA. If native or palestinian were to rise up against their bourgeois oppressors and white/israeli workers sided against them, they would be well in their right to fight back, its the "settler" workers that are betraying their class interests, not the revolutionaries. by @SaddamHussein24@lemmygrad.ml reason: Defending US colonialism

Removed Comment Uhh no, im saying the situation in Algeria was much more different than Israeli or even more USA. Algeria before independence had practically 0 industry, so there was practically no proletariat, both french and algerian. Thus, the economy was mostly peasantry and resource extraction like oil. French were a minuscule (10% population) and rich minority who owned all the land and means of production, they were all bourgeois, while algerians were poor landless peasants who worked the land, paying the rich french landlords for it. So here you have a disposessed peasantry vs a rich and small settler landlord/bourgeoisie class. This is a very different situation from USA, where "settlers" are the majority (60%) and the country is highly industrialized, with most population, both native and settler, being proletarian, while being ruled by a small rich settler bourgeoisie. In Algeria there was indeed no french proletariat, in the US its different. A different class situation requires a different analysis dont you think? Also i dont understand where you get that i dont support palestinian or native american liberation struggle, bizarre. I mean, FLN and other algerian nationalists were originally reformists, and wanted peaceful independence, some even just autonomy. But they were forced into armed resistance after french imperialists reacted with extreme violence to simple peaceful political advocacy, after the loss of North Vietnam for french imperialism. Despite all french in Algeria being objectively bourgeois and reactionary, algerians refused to attack them first, and only defended themselves after unprecedented brutality and mass murder by the french. by @SaddamHussein24@lemmygrad.ml reason: Defending US colonialism because "settlers are a majority", unlike algeria

Removed Comment Similar for me. I had already felt semi-consciously that the establishment was more prepared to thwart Sanders in the 2020 campaign, what I didn't realize then was how he willingly played in to it. He was literally the controlled opposition to the controlled opposition (meaning Dems). After he b.i.t.c.h.ed out, I took some time for self-reflection and read some more and realized even in the absolute best case scenario that this socdem shit is just another capitalist lie relying on the global south to exploit. Fuck Bernie and his "good friend" Joe Biden. Edit: apparently the "B" word is banned...Christ on a stick Lemmygrad....which misandrist words are **not** banned then? My guess is most of them.

Removed Comment [@Comrade\_rose](https://lemmygrad.ml/u/Comrade_rose) not really. Capitalism is simply an economic tool, not a political philosophy. Capitalism is essentially paying others to use your resources and then splitting the money, usually with the proprietor recieving the most amount since they run the business and started the husiness risking their own capital to do so. All completely voluntary. Socialism requires either magical thinking or force to work, ends up making the final product outrageously expensive and there is no true equality in it, simply the rich politicians staying rich politicians and the poor workers that think they own the means of production staying poor. by Jimmy
