On the Significance of Homophobic Liberals

Longtime readers of this blog will know that I have no love for liberalism. It is cancerous phlegm paving the road to a social-fascist dictatorship; whether it is raising money for Republican offices after an arson attack or defending the Alt-Right’s “freedom” of speech, modern liberalism as embodied by the Democratic Party is an embarrassing fiasco rooted in the neoliberal far-right.

Today, however, I thought I would mix it up a tad and speak on a different disturbing trend in liberalism. Namely, its homophobia.

Ever since Donald Trump was elected Shitbag-in-Chief of the American Empire, the best that American liberals have been able to do to “Resist” Trump is mire themselves in unmaintainable conspiracy theories concerning Russian “involvement”. This is the electoral fraud nonsense, of Russia “hacking” the election and now seemingly becoming the boogeyman in every cyber-mishap the world over (also, who can forget that time George Tekai blamed Russian hackers for his sexual assault allegations gaining prominence?).

Alongside the hacking narrative, there has been its social manifestation. Because the U.S has a long history of antagonizing and interfering in Russian affairs, Russian politics has relied on Putin’s strong-arm as a means of stabilization; lapdogs of U.S imperialism, then, have been keen to pick up every pretense of awful that happens in Russia.

This is where Putin enters the picture. And, more specifically, his homophobia.

In a move which should surprise no one, imperial liberals have reversed Putin’s homophobia. They have latched on to a different conspiracy theory– that of the so-called “Gay genocide” in Chechnya– and warped it to indicate an alleged sexual repression of his own sexuality; this is where all those ‘cross-dressing Putin’ memes originate where Putin is seen in drag often in front of a rainbow (despite the fact that cross-dressing and sexuality are two distinct social expressions).

Come Donald Trump’s election, this propaganda campaign morphed into the homophobic string of memes we see today. Whether it is Trump cuddling with Putin, Trump being impregnated by Putin, or any number of other sordid scenarios, we see a clear line of evolution from the early days of “ha, look at Trump in drag!” to today’s “ha, I find the idea of two men in a relationship hilarious– Trump is so gay!”. This is how all those terrible memes came about.

Obviously, this is deeply problematic.

Although the imperial liberal establishment which backed Clinton’s bid is keeping their mouth shut at the obviously homophobic nature of these memes, I have noticed that, for the most part, imperial neoliberals such as Perez Hilton have also refrained from sharing such images, giving at least a tacit nod of disapproval at the meme’s nature while continuing to back their own warmongering Piece-of-Shit candidate.

What this hints at is a disapproval from even the imperial liberal establishment, however many shrills will try and argue otherwise. I will accept that there will be traitors to the struggle that subsume their hatred of Trump over their self-worth; this always happens and is why things such as Gay Republicans and Milo Yannopapupoopface exists. Such positions, however, are false and indicative of a mindset that, at best, is merely ignorant and under a false class consciousness. At worst, it is indicative of a neo-fascist.

But, let’s step back for a moment.

We have talked about the political nature of these images. Sometimes, though, in order to really understand why something is a negative when it seems in service of a higher cause, we need to understand why, at the social level, these memes are counter-productive.

Take a moment and look through these images. Though there are worse memes, more homophobic ones, just take a look of the spread and muse.

 

 

Have you gotten a good look at them? Good.

What did you see? Some parts are obvious, I bet: you saw misogynistic language, an endorsement of Russian interference, and some crude sexual references. But, didn’t you see something deeper? I bet you did.

I bet you saw why these images are homophobic, I bet that you realized that these images are homophobic because they set up Trump’s relation to world leaders in a submissive state. I bet you saw how they combine Trump’s alleged lack of “smarts” with him being taken advantage of sexually by more cunning leaders. I bet you perceived that in these instances, all of the memes have been relating the negativity of Trump’s actions as homosexual sex acts; that Trump’s supposed anti-Militarism– a major promise of his campaign– has been turned into a treasonous act of stately subversion where instead of wanting to make war against Russia, he does his best to turn a blind eye to the neoliberals warmongering cawing; I bet you saw that neoliberals picked up on this and warped Trump’s shallow anti-Militarism into a literal love-affair with Putin (after all, who other than the people fucking Putin wouldn’t want to unleash a nuclear war against Russia and kill millions of people?!).

Let’s switch to a mind-experiment.

Pretend that you are a thirteen-year-old boy coming of age under a Trump presidency. Everywhere that you see is a heated political landscape. The president is hated and you share a lot of that attitude, though you are still finding your feet in the political world. But, politics is not exactly the first thing on your mind since everywhere that you go you continue to notice boys far more than your notice girls. What are you to think when after much internal struggle, you come to terms with your sexuality only to realize that everywhere you go, you see your sexuality externalized as the go-to method of expression for despising the president?

If you were in this boy’s position, you would likely be peeved off. Pissed that you can’t kiss another boy, or cuddle in bed, or hold his hand without some liberal ass-wipe just down the hall chiding Trump’s “gayness”. You would be pissed that your sexuality is now closely related to– *gasp*– anti-xenophobia, that most un-American of ideas!

You, my imaginary lad, have every fucking right to be pissed the fuck off.

It is like a return to the nineties where everything which wasn’t exactly right, or didn’t go to plan, or broke down, or was cheap or odd looking or lame or whatever, was “gay”. Except for this time around, you have to replace minor annoyances with Trump’s lackadaisical anti-war drive.

It is like Freud’s return of the repressed. Just very vulgar and somehow more insulting.

But, who can say that they are shocked? Not I, especially not recently with the so-called “Girther” “movement” in its full-parodic swing. My facebook feed has been filled with these very same liberals spamming page after page with the foulest, sickening Fat Shaming, Ableist tirades since 8Chan crawled out of its filthy hole.

Don’t forget this in your fury, though, don’t forget that it wasn’t conservative Republicans who made anti-Gay Trump memes. It wasn’t Republicans who as tone-deaf and terrible as they are with their rape apologia, who made these fat shaming memes No. The people who made these memes are liberals. The scum who created this thinly-veiled queerphobic drive are the same people who are supposedly are on the cutting edge of progressive politics, who want an “enlightened” attitude toward sex and gender. They are liars.

These people are not our champions. They are cockroaches. They are warmongers. They are the ruling capitalist elite’s running dogs. These are the people who spread child porn in pro-Bernie groups just to de-legitimate Sanders; these are the people who gave Obama the Bomber free-reign as he rained death in the Middle East and Africa and demolished Libya, turning it into a failed state; these liberals are the same group who supported some of the most virulent anti-Union legislation in literal human history, legislation so far-reaching that South American fascists rejected similar legislation for being too “extreme”. Enough is enough.

Liberals are not your friend. They never have been. They are reactionary, homophobic, sexist pigs. It is time to cut the illusion and cast away all ties– physical and ideological.

If You Want to Avoid Your Inevitable Murder

In case you haven’t heard, there was this “Unite the Right” rally held in Charlottesville just a bit ago.

What is significant about this gathering of human filth is that this time the Nazis and other assorted garbage, openly professed their love for fascism. Chanting shit like “Blood and Soil” and “You will not replace us” quickly led to a confrontation with a couple dozen student protesters at the University of Virginia.

The fascists surrounded the students who were preventing access to the Confederate statue. Holding a sign which explicitly rejected White Supremacy, these students should be an inspiration to all and the ultimate sign that youth are hardly “special snowflakes” or “overly sensitive”, not when they– unarmed– stood down many times their number, armed, while the Nazis shouted many slurs and hate.

The next day, meanwhile, an outraged fascist, on his way out from the gathering, drove into a group of counter-protestors killing one and injuring dozens.

I want to emphasize this– what happened here was that the so-called “Alt-Right” abandoned any pretense to being non-fascist, and embraced outright murder. Additionally, I want to emphasize another fact– the time for delusions is over; non-violence is not going to prevail, what the left needs now is armed and ideologically disciplined peoples militias to counter the growing far-right extremist paramilitaries. The United States is heading to Civil War and capitalism is in deep decay. Conservatives, liberals (“Social Fascists”), progressives, whatever reformist you want to invoke, is not going to stop the spread of fascism.

You, as a Queer person, are now at a crossroad: you can either continue to embrace these asinine illusions of things getting better (unlikely to happen) or you can arm yourself, reject White Nationalism, and become a revolutionary anti-capitalist. Stop kidding yourself– capitalism is not going to save the world, fascism will not protect you, only the collapse of capitalism and the erection of a socialist fraternity will make the world a better place.

I want to make this very clear, that this reaction, this morbid and racist attitude that has permeated the Gay community lately needs to go. Your masculinity will not save you. Acting all “tough” and “macho” and “masculine” will not save you nor will being a Republican. Not even joining the fascists themselves– the few so-called ‘Left-wing Fascists’– will not save you; little-known fact: the Nazi Party had some openly Gay members and even leaders. You know what happened to them? They were murdered by the other Nazis in the Night of Long Knives. If you join the fascists, they will murder you sooner or later.

Enough is fucking enough.

If you are a liberal or progressive, a Dem. or a Green or a DSA member, you need to accept reality and that a violent necessity stands before us; that this fascist movement will not be stopped by chanting or holding hands or voting in the Social Fascists of the moribund Democratic Party. Read Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao. Read on the labor struggle and anti-imperialism, anti-capitalist theory and practice. Seriously, get with it already; the right-wing is getting their theory in order and so should you.

About Degrading Flith: A Pride Month Statement

It is nearly over, that awful spectacle which happens every year—(No) Pride Month, a time where liberal and progressive Queers congregate to congratulate themselves on being asswipes.

You may think I am being too harsh but the opposite is true, if anything, I am not being harsh enough because after the shit I have seen this month, I know I am not being as critical as I should warrant. What shit, you ask? Well, let me lay it out for you.

  • Pig Pride and the Shit’s Collaborators: Police have no place in Pride. In case you forgot, police were the thugs who brutalized, raped, and murdered Queer people. Especially, working class Queer people. Frankly, I don’t give a shit if some Gay or Lesbian or Trans gender pig gets their feelings hurt at being excluded. Why don’t I care? Don’t you care, you scream, about ALL Queer Lives? My curt answer is “No”, I do not. I don’ give a rat’s fucking ass about pigs or their lives. They are enemies of the working class and should be treated as such: as far as I am concerned, Queer pigs are traitors to their community: you can’t uphold the idea of equality and equity while upholding those who promoted your genocide just a few decades ago. Fuck off.

 

  • Racists, Fascists, and Shit Galore: Oh, and also, fuck off if you were one of those racist, White shitheads who piss and moan about the Queer Black-Brown Pride flag or actually thanked the fucking pigs at physically arming and arresting anti-Police brutality activists who blocked your marches trying to raise awareness about the violence working class Queers face every day. Let me make this absolutely plain—FUCK OFF RACIST MOTHERFUCKERS! This applies doubly to Zionist Pride marchers who like to shout “anti-Semitism” every time their horseshit gets rejected by organizers; no, your fascist fucking asses don’t belong anywhere in Pride, not as long as Palestinians lead a second-class existence under the heel of Apartheid Israel. Take your whining and shove it up your fucking ass. Same goes for your Alt-Right love-affair with the Neo-Nazi sympathizer Milo Yannopoopylopoous and the general love-affair which demonizes Islam. Just in case the first time wasn’t rammed through your skull, let me yell again—YOU CAN’T BE QUEER AND CONSERVATIVE AND NOT BE A TRAITOR! Open a goddamn history book.

 

  • Corporate Dicksuckers (the Bad kind of Dicksuckers): I am going to say this: every. single. Year. Is. The. Same. Damn. Thing. Fucking honestly. I have no idea why otherwise intelligent and honest Queers rejoice for joy whenever there is a lot of corporate sponsors for the Pride parade. Asshole, use your fucking brain for something other than promoting homophobic anti-Trump conspiracy theories—corporations do not care the fuck about you! Picture after fucking picture is the same: logo this, slogan that; these capitalist bastards pay a small sum to have you float their fucking banner so they can pretend like they are bastions of fucking tolerance when it was literally fucking years ago that they didn’t even give their Queer employees benefits or recognize their Union in any fucking way. Stop being a goddamn collaborationist jackass and reject corporate sabotaging of your identity as a Queer person. Stop the corporate-capitalist bastardization of YOUR history!

 

  • Queer Mass-Murderers and Jizzing for Clinton: Some time ago I saw a protest sign which read something to the extent of “If Hillary won we’d be at brunch right now”. This one sign summed up everything which is wrong with the Queer community. Even decades ago, when Gay Liberation was first getting off the ground, there was a concentrated effort by radicals to stop the “plastic Gay” culture from breeding; all the revolutionary manifestoes mentioned it. But, lately, it was accelerated big time and it reeks of fascistic opportunism. Signs like this reveal the privileged, racist complacency of so many in the Gay community who can only articulate politics through the spineless, warmongering lens of the Democratic Party. Sure, let’s ignore the cishet liberals who rapidly morphed into the liberal version of the tea party, complete with anti-communism, pro-war anti-Russian narratives, absurd conspiracy theories about the president, and twisted logic which promoted their “values” through homophobic memes featuring Putin and Trump. Let’s ignore all that; even then, the fact that Queerness can’t mean anything outside of the Russia-bashing is just pathetic and is part of what is egging on another world war or nuclear conflict. Now more than ever, people should be joining a revolutionary anti-capitalist organization. Yet, instead, they have been shilling for an opportunistic imperialist (Hillary Clinton) who just a few short years ago didn’t even support Gay Marriage and whose racist, genocidal bloodthirst has destroyed Libya and constantly egged on further conflict. I’m going to say the truth: I’m “glad” Trump won because if Killary won, we would be at war with Russia right now instead of merely “getting really, really close”. If your brand of Queerness is so rooted in imperialism and consumerism that you can’t separate that from blasé statements from politicians and mindless neoliberal ideology, then you and your belief system aren’t worth jack-fucking-shit.

 

Likely, there are points I am missing. Honestly, Pride has never been the most political or radical lately, but just this year, it has taken a terrible, racist, transphobic turn for the worse. Seriously, it is fucking sickening seeing the degrading, warped, and just messed up shit coming from the mostly White Queer contingent lately.

Remember this—stonewall was a riot!

Stonewall was a literal fucking rebellion against police brutality; it was started and fought by Trans people of color; it was endorsed by a hesitant Left who grew to accept Queer people and their struggle for freedom after this riot brought to attention the deplorable and revolutionary potential of non-White, non-gender conforming, sexual “deviants”. Because this revolutionary potential is wasted every day by traitors and assholes alike, it is particularly disgusting to see Stonewall dishonored like this and forgotten, the narrative given over to reactionaries. It is absolutely fucking horrifying to see actual Alt-Right Queers unknowingly pushing for their own demise by associating with these Queer bashing fascist fucks. Truly, the Queer community has reached a low lately; a stunning, deplorable low.

At this point, the reality is this: unless you are anti-racist, anti-fascist, and anti-capitalism, unless you support the violent and revolutionary overthrow of the capitalists, then you are playing yourself. Someday, you will end up in a concentration camp and marvel at the efficient the gas chambers, all while wondering how such an end came, probably unaware that you placed yourself there by compromising with fascism and its liberal enablers. This is the brass tax: if you are unprepared to challenge yourself and fight the dogma you have been force-fed your whole life, then expect history to repeat itself; because, let’s be honest, at this rate, history is doing just that at an incredible fucking pace.

Bioshock: Infinite (A Class Narrative)

The Founders propaganda

The following article is a review of the political narrative of Bioshock: Infinite, a game recently released by 2K software and Irrational Games. My document is not meant to be the “end all” script for the game’s analysis but it is intended to begin discussion on the topic at hand. For the purposes of this article I have limited myself to talking purely about the game’s political overtones and social-commentary; comments concerning the finer aspects of the gameplay I have intentionally excluded.

~             ~             ~

                Infinite is a unique experience. Much like its predecessors, lying within the game’s plot there are political overtones which carry significant amounts of social-commentary on American (United States) culture. Yet despite this I cannot say that Infinite is a watershed game in the same manner its past-contemporary was; during the narrative there is ups and downs. A genuinely progressive streak of intriguing musings on race and religion, intermixed with labor struggle, are abruptly hampered by a decadent liberal turn for the worse.

                To understand what I mean we must delve into the world of Bioshock: Infinite.

                Once there we will emerge onto a city which floats in the sky-Columbia! A city of pure Americana Columbia is the world of any ultra-conservative’s dream: there is no sex before marriage, children’s know their place and are well disciplined, labor activists are shot, and inter-racial marriage is a crime punishable by exile and even death. The guiding light of this utopia is the prophet Zachery Chomstock who reigns over Columbia as a demi-lord, a righteous holy man who shines the path towards salvation for the thousands of Columbia’s residents.

                Enter: Broker DeWitt. A veteran of the brutal combat of Westward expansion, Mr. DeWitt served in the United States cavalry where he not only fought at Wounded Knee but also in the Yellow Boxer Rebellion. Haunted by debts the ghosts of his past have given him a final chance to pay off his obligations: bring them a girl-Elizabeth- and his slate will be wiped clean.

                Entering Columbia through a shuttle which he rode at the top of a lighthouse (a familiar locale, eh?) our protagonist fights his way to the prison where Elizabeth is held; a giant tower in the shape of an angel and more than a bit reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty (among other grand monuments). Helped along the way by a paradoxical couple who know their way around the city, the player encounters many signs which allude to unrest within this morally upright paradise.

                The first sign manifests as gossip concerning a group called the “Vox Populi”. Whispered in feared revelation the player learns that these people stand in opposition to the founders of Columbia, a aptly named group led by their Prophet called “The Founders”.

                To call the Founders racist is an understatement. For they are not your great grandmother’s unnerving comments about the “superior qualities” of Whites but rather a raucous diatribe against the Negro cloaked in the visage of religion; the police force motto being “Protect the Future of Our Race” is then combined with the theocratic enforces use of Ku Klux Klan-esque robes to full effect. Together with the painting depicting Abraham Lincoln as a monster and John Wilkes Booth as a hero, we begin to see the true colors of The Founders.

                This even extends to Elizabeth. The player soon discovers that she is locked away in the tower due to a religious frenzy. The prophet has done this because he has “foreseen the future” and knows that she is his successor, the one who will lead Columbia and pure the world of sing and vice.

                As one might imagine this setting has much to see. By the time the player rescues Elizabeth from her tower, relatively early in the game (about a couple hours in), even more fascinating threads are introduced: Elizabeth can open “tears” in the fabric of the universe. She can even bring in objects from the other side to aid the player in their quest.

                As one might expect all this makes for dynamite gameplay; the action is solid, the graphics flourish, and the soundtrack a reliable companion. Yet the political narrative is not as tight. Going into Infinite I believed I was about to play the “Avatar” of 2013. Meaning I was under the impression that Infinite was to deliver a hard-hitting package of progressive social-commentary which bordered on the revolutionary. Unfortunately such wasn’t the case.

                The plot of Infinite is as described above: The Founders and the Vox Populi are at war, one side represents patriotism the other radicalism. Due to this nature the game packs quite a political punch but it is mostly contained to the first half of the game. This second half deals heavily with interpersonal actions across multiple universes (otherwise known as the “Multiverse”). This in turn negates the conflict in Columbia and regulates it to background details for the journey at hand.

                So to analyze the content at hand we must look beyond the beginning. Near the quarter-progress mark is where the relevant social-commentary picks up and it is where we see Infinite take a turn for the worse.

                It is at this point in the game where the player is tasked with acquiring weapons for the Vox. To do so they must travel to an area collectively known as “Fink Company”. This comprises the Docks, factory, slums, and market place. All of it belongs to an industrial magnate named Mr. Finkerton. As one might imagine within the conservative realm of Columbia there are no trade unions and so blaring throughout the PA system are tirades against demanding better wages, improved working conditions, and imagining something better. To this extent “labor agitators” are rounded up and placed in stocks.

                As the player continues with their harried quest to find the weapon smith capable of forging their much needed weapons, a cache which if obtained will grant the Vox Populi the strength needed to launch a revolution, the player journeys through several distortions; rips in the universe which lead into alternative pockets inside the Multiverse.

                After several leaps through these “tears” the player finally succeeds in their quest to create weapons for the Vox. Soon thereafter the player is thrust into a realm of revolutionary upheaval. Gone are the police filled streets searching for political dissidents and “in” are the days of armed workers overthrowing the rich. Any revolutionary is sure to be inspired by the sight of armed “leftists” storming police headquarters, slaying policemen with summary executions, and deriding the lies of the capitalists. I know I was quite taken.

                It is for these very reasons, however, where the game slips and starts down on the reactionary slippery slope of moralism. Let’s first look at the dialogue: during this tumultuous moment in the game, where the Vox are taking matters into their own hands, conversation between Broker and Elizabeth take a right-wing turn.

                Prior to the start of the revolution the player was regaled with musings on how because the Vox had weapons they would be able to make a better life for themselves. Yet after the Vox get weapons, and the protagonists see the carnage of class warfare, they suddenly begin this lopsided moralizing: “Comstock and Fitzroy [the leader of the Anarchists] they are no different, aren’t they… they are the same… they are just right for each other” and on and on in this manner equating the two as different sides of the same coin.

                This was a severely disappointing development. In what manner were the Vox and Founders similar? Did the Vox exploit their fellow man’s labor in exchange for profit? Did the Vox institute slavery and White Supremacy? Did the Vox have visions of drowning the world in a sea of theocratic flame? No, they did not. At this moment we hear that these two factions are “one in the same” because they (wait for it…) use violence!

                To spell out how “corrupt” the Vox Populi have become the developers take the cheapest road possible: they show the Vox leader-Fitzroy- nearly murder the son of Finkerton; with blood smeared on her face and shouting lines of how the boy’s death is necessary to ensure the complete destruction of the workers oppression, the scene is cut short in Fitzroy’s unexpected slaying[i].

                Narrative wise the confusion heightens even more when you hear dialogue which advocates not for the workers to take control of the means of production but to burn down Finkerton factory; to not place Columbia under socialist leadership but to “drag it from the sky”. While Mr. Levine was inspired by (a picture of) Eugene Debs it doesn’t seem that any of the rhetoric of revolutionaries rubbed off on him as at this point in the plot I got the impression that the lead creative team was inspired more by the popular conception of Anarchism (destroy everything, no leaders!) than its reality (destroy capitalism, no bourgeoisie!).

                It is almost as if Ken Levine decided to take such a grotesque turn as if in recompense for the wicked depiction of the virtues of “traditional America”. As if he had to paint the workers uprising as a hypocritical, needlessly bloody event so as to not be mistaken for advocating socialist revolution in the real world.

                While the ideals of the Vox Populi are never truly expounded upon, and it is only in propaganda posters that they are referred to as “Anarchists”, if we take on their chosen lexicon then we know for certain that they represent a revolutionary, anti-capitalist faction. In this manner we cannot excuse the developer out of cop-outs (I.E “the Vox weren’t actually Anarchist so hence it isn’t actually anti-revolution). Between the rants against wealth, hoarding, advocacy for striking, and multi-racial worker brigades, we have all the proof we need that this faction is the perceived revolutionary pole thus making this event (the turn against the Vox) anti-revolutionary; or as we call it in the legitimately revolutionary circles: petty-bourgeois.

                The narrative here is one of class collaboration. Of stressing the needs of unions and of liberal approaches to race relations, of free association of religion separated from politics. It is an endorsement of the status quo ultimately preaching the need for a smaller “worker friendly” version of capitalism. While I was hoping it would be so much more than that it isn’t. So it is true: we all cannot get what we want.

~             ~             ~

                So we see that Bioshock: Infinite is a mixed bag. While the gameplay is great and story engrossing when we take a closer look at the class narrative it becomes muddled. In the very least it is what I would consider to be False Progressive; or, an ideological outlook which leads masses to reactionary dead-ends. Still for all its short-comings it packs a punch if you are searching for an interesting world Post-Rapture.


[i] The historical parallel to be made here is that of Vladimir Lenin; when the Russian revolution was triumphant did they allow the Czar’s family to live? No, they did not. They executed them precisely because the Bolsheviks understood that one cannot allow heirs to “the dynasty” roam free and someday organize resistance to the new regime. Such deaths are an unfortunate yet necessary part of history.

The Queer Project Report #6

Kicking things off this past week we see Democratic Party lawmakers attempting to gather the two-thirds majority votes needed in order to overturn Governor Chris Christie’s veto of the 2012 marriage equality bill. The proponents have until 2014 to gather said signatures. This is not surprising as it continues the Democratic Party’s trend of entrenching themselves in the malaise of False Progressivism. To further hijack the Queer liberation movement they have been dedicated to championing the cause of the “middle class” homosexuals while turning its revolutionary potential into merely another bourgeois layer in the nascent American working class.

The effects, or lack of positive effects, of this line of thought can be seen in the case of one of the gay murder suspects. Police believe to have made more progress in their hypothesis in that the murderer used gay chat rooms to lure their victims. Hiring an Italian investigator this private eye uncovered some strange details concerning the murderer in that he pretended to be a British MI5 agent. Here we see the decaying tenants of bourgeois ideology taking on the form of reactionary serial killers all to further the cause of heterosexism.  This development is expected for as capitalism continues in its current destruction cycle we Queer Revolutionaries expect for the harbingers of para-fascist convention to try and utilize the ruling class’s instruments in order to expand and legitimize their criminal efforts.

Obviously the movement in the first world has suffered greatly. Yet there is hope that within the third-world, places where imperialism has ravaged and where revolutionary movements are likely to emerge, that the Queer movement will learn from the past and endorse clear-cut positions on society while fighting to preserve their integrity. This is seen in the case of sixteen year old Enamullah, an Afghani youth who recently became the youngest person in Afghanistan history to have gender reassignment surgery. Transitioning into manhood from womanhood, young Enamullah has, together with Afghanistan’s other progressive activists, shown the world and their country’s native reactionaries that the honor of Queer people will not be infringed upon by barbarism.

We can only hope that such bravery persists after the Western occupation forces withdraw and Taliban control is ushered back in. If it does then this persistence will have shown the world that despite hardships and loss the Queer working class of the world preservers. Above all it will show the Western Queer people on how to be brave and how, hopefully, to become revolutionary again.
