WRM, refering to the Italian election results, tells us “we aren’t seeing the rise of thugs and genocidaires (except maybe in Greece).” I emailed him and asked him if he could show any reference that Golden Dawn supported genocide, or if not would he withdraw his remark. No response and the post is still up.
Like on a third grade playground, name-calling is the first resort of leftists “Racist! Sexist! Homophobic! Insensitive! Mean-spirited!” The fact that you’ve been insulted means you’ve struck a nerve, and that they have no answer- but you do that just by opening your mouth.
It’s easy to tell people not to be intimidated by this stuff, but it works very well. As a practical matter this is why we need economic independence, so we don’t have to worried about being pilloried and fired.
