  • It’s ok because racist groups are allowed to use communistic symbols

  • Why do large segments of the black community stand for or remain silent when radical white leftists continue to commit various crimes in their name for their own political aims...

    And who were fighting the fascists in WWII, often in partisan cells?

    Why did BLM choose the Communist symbol?

  • I love the clenched fist/kissy face look. He could lose the hard hat

  • The cliched fist means resistance, solidarity, a united effort. I generally associate it with leftists movements.

    IMHO, Mussolini’s use of the fasci held a similar meaning. Check the back of our Mercury dime.

  • The public literature and slogans of the various communist parties are replete with what is known as “Aesopian language,” allowing its authors to propagate a specific message understood to their ideological adherents but unbeknownst or seemingly benign to the average unsuspecting person.

    The longstanding definitive Webster’s Third New International Dictionary of the English Language Unabridged defines “Aesopian” as “language only understood by those indoctrinated in such verbiage.” The more recent 11th edition of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary is even more explicit, defining “Aesopian” as “conveying an innocent meaning to an outsider but a hidden meaning to a member of a conspiracy or underground movement.” Plainly put, for the purposes of this article, “Aesopian language” is communist communication concealed in public view.

    In Wordmanship: Semantics as a Communist Weapon, a study prepared for the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Internal Security in 1961, Stefan T. Possony, the Hoover Institution’s director of international studies, traces the use of this practice to Vladimir Lenin, who “employed Aesopian expressions to get by the tsarist censor.” Of Lenin’s use of “Aesopian language,” Possony elaborates:
    He masked “Communists” as “strict Marxists” and instead of using the taboo word “revolution,” talked about “the reform,” not to be confused with “reforms” which became an Aesopian term dear to moderate Socialists.

    By now, most of the original Communist vocabulary has been given an Aesopian equivalent. “Dictatorship of the proletariat” grew into “democracy,” “expropriation” was transformed into “planning,” “revolution” was camouflaged as “liberation,” “the party” became “the people” or “the peace movement,” and “communism” was disguised as “anticolonialism,” “anti-imperialism,” and “antifascism.”

    The purpose of this coded vernacular was to achieve specific results. “To the Communists, words are tools to achieve effects, not means to communicate in search of truth,” writes Possony. This thought is also conveyed in Doubletalk: The Language of Communism, where author Harry Hodgkinson writes:

    The language of communism … is not so much a means of explaining to an unbeliever what communism means, but an armory of weapons and tools intended to produce support or dissolve opposition to communist policies on the part of people either hostile or indifferent to them. The meaning of a communist word is not what you think it says, but what effect it is intended to produce.

    Thus in communism, words and phrases are not defined by the meanings found in a dictionary but by the actions they elicit. This is the essence of “Aesopian language.” Symbols and gestures are also principal components of the Marxian “Aesopian language.” Among the most well-known symbols and hand gestures for communists and their fellow travelers is the raised clenched fist.

    Seemingly benign to the average unsuspecting person, the clenched fist has been a longtime symbol for Communist Party-controlled or Marxist-inspired labor, union, and solidarity activists.

    Black power? Why does the President puts one arm up with his fist in the air? I'm sure you'll get to the bottom of it. It's not like you have much else to do.
  • This is clearly a play on black power.
    Keep doing your thing though smack, you’ll get to the bottom of it before long!

    user generatedThe exact same fist. The same arrow pointing up. It’s the same organization.

    Keep ignoring it. You’ll be enslaved before you know it.

    Have you considered a connection between Black Power and communism? Perhaps you should along with Black Liberation Theology and Marxism.

  • Why not? I’ve grown up with plenty of white power people. It’s about time they fight fire with fire.

    You’re a smart person. Smack is not. Want to follow his lead?

    It’s about time?

    Welcome to 1960.

    Why do leftists think one type of racially prejudiced hate group is ok but Republicans don’t think either is acceptable?

    My IQ is far above yours. Guaranteed.

    Wait...I thought we were talking about holding a fist up?

    I never said I was good with any hate crime. Are you in the wrong thread? I know you’re busy fighting the good fight, but try to stay on topic in each thread.

  • TrueGoldandBlue85 said... (original post)Why not? I’ve grown up with plenty of white power people. It’s about time they fight fire with fire.

    So you want a fight?

    Because that’s what’s coming if this nonsense keeps up.

    Even rational folks...aren’t going to put up with this forever.
