    your either on the side of the suicide bombing,grenade launching terrorists or your on the side of the beer swilling, shoot em up bang bang, occupying robot militia.

    tough choice when things are so clear cut.

    And I beleive this term came along when good ole upstanding amerikkkan citizens started lynchin naggers BOY!
    so don't you forget your heritage!

    P.S. Racism is still alive and well in the south.

    Racism is starting to be alive and well on 12oz prophet too, and it isn't being spewed by the Americans.

    LOL LOL LOL. Touche'.

    Actually, the "AmeriKKKa" thing started back in the 1960's during the Vietnam War protests. It was considered to be "over the top" even back then. It was popularized by Abbie Hoffman and the Youth International Party, better known to history as the "Yippies!", a spin-off of the word "hippie". And from Yippie!, we got "yuppie," (Young Urban Professional) the opposite of the crazy, street-theatre, pot-smoking, commune-living Yippies! The yuppies represented the overly-materialistic, Harvard MBA, strive-for-success young professionals. Then we got "guppies" (Gay Urban Professional), then came the DINKs (double-income, no kids.)

    I actually met Abbie Hoffman once, at an anti-war rally on the Hill at Miller Theatre in Hermann Park, in Houston. I was on the incredibly amateurish "security team" surrounding Hoffman, because the Klan had threatened to kill him. At that same demonstration, two guys I knew from SDS, Thorne Dreyer and a guy named Cam captured a well-known Klan activist, Louis Beam, who showed up at the demonstration wearing a buzz haircut , a Klan t-shirt and spit-shined jump boots. They held him in a full-nelson while a female Space City! photographer took his picture. Boy, was he pissed. They published the picture in Space City! as part of an article on Abbie Hoffman's appearance at the demonstration.

    Louis Beam is the Klan leader who popularized the theory of "leaderless resistance" among the racist right-wing. Despite his ignorant, redneck background, he turned out to be pretty smart when it comes to tactics. Leaderless resistance works very well, and has been adopted by many other political movements, including anti-globalization groups, "Earth First!", ALF and others. These organizations are extremely difficult to penetrate, because they all use Louis Beam's idea, probably without realizing where it came from.

    Actually, it seems better published on here than it really was. We would go to a demonstration, get all pumped up, shout slogans that seem incredibly inane now, wind up punching it out with the Klan or the Nazis, and then later had the feeling that the entire thing was an exercise in futility.

    The demonstrations in Seattle (and other places) against globalization and NAFTA kind of have the same spirit as the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations, only smaller. The biggest anti-war demonstration I was ever in was in Los Angeles, in April 1971. There were more than 20,000 people there. That same weekend, in New York, there was an even bigger march with probably somewhere around 100,000. These marches were organized by a group I found out later (much to my disgust) that was infiltrated and controlled by the Trotskyist "Socialist Workers' Party," called New Mobilization Against the War, or "New Mobe" for short. After the LA march, I went to Chicago, to the IWW headquarters and lived in the "dormitory" for a few weeks, and then was sent back to Long Beach, CA, to help with the wildcat strike at International Wood Products, when the strikers voted to join the I.W.W. Three organizers were sent from Chicago--me, a British guy named Graham, and a local Chicago guy named John. I'd like to say we did a great job, but in reality it was a clusterfuck from the very start.

    Most of the time when you are participating in some moment in history it doesn't seem all that momentous. Thirty years later, people are going "Wow! You were at Century City Plaza?" But when it's happening all you can see is people running, girls screaming, and tear gas. You see somebody fall down, help them up and say "The pigs have gone nuts! RUN!" and later she says "Thank you, thank you, you saved my life, I thought I was going to get trampled!" but in reality, it was no big deal. She just fell down and you helped her up.

    The whole time the Sixties were going on, I kept thinking I was missing out on all the really good shit. I didn't go to Woodstock. I wasn't at the Battle of Telegraph Avenue (in Berkeley.) I didn't get to go to the Chicago Democratic National Convention in 1968 (I tried, my Mom found out and stopped me. I was 17.) I always felt that Houston was a backwater and that we were just wasting our time marching in demonstrations here, or in Austin. But years later, when I talked to other anti-war protestors, they would say things like "Oh, yeah, we marched all the time. But it wasn't the same as Down South, where you had to fight the Klan and all that. It was a cakewalk up here." The grass is always greener, I guess.

    Actually I've been through the south and I didn't see anywhere near the amount of racism I see at home here in Philly. The black people here are racist as fuck! :yuck:

    Kabar - if your 1969 self met your 2005 self, what would the 1969 self think?

    Note: this isn't meant as a slight or anything of the sort - I'm actually curious.
