As to those Comrades who profess a religious belief – learn to understand what it is you are supporting and to distinguish between the teachings of the founder and the political dogma of the church elders – these are not the same things. Do not attempt to ‘defend’ what is ‘indefensible’ and always keep in-mind the teaching of Marxist-Leninism. Politicised religion is ‘political’ and not ‘religious’ – do not wilfully participate in your own psychological and physical enslavement.
As the hundred or so people marched through the streets of London, British people – who were stood at bus-stops, walking down the streets, stood in doorways or queuing for food – spontaneously burst into loud applause – showing their support for London’s Muslim population.
The problem with gesture politics and single issue protests is that the Bourgeois State simply ‘meets’ and ‘contains’ each flare-up, keeping one disaffected group from another (with the false propaganda that each special interest group has nothing in common with one another). This is the working class disunited by the Bourgeois System – and kept disempowered in that state. This is the opposite process to unionism. Instead of protesting this issue or that issue from a one dimensional perspective, all protests should be presented for what they are – a concerted bourgeois attack upon the working class! Bourgeois attacks on the homeless, Muslims, Jews, poor, unemployed, homosexual, Black, White, Asian, animals, housing, healthcare, work, benefits, sexuality, gender, defence, science, technology, sport, art, travel and general culture, are all important issues in their own right, of course they are, but they also indicate different aspects of attacking the samething – namely the working class! We should ‘unite’ around our differences to become stronger in the face of bourgeois attack. In this way, if we respond ‘together’ as an organic whole, the bourgeois class would have to tread very carefully as it faces the possibility of losing all its dominance over us – which should serve as the premise for all united working class protest. We must ‘take’ our rights because the bourgeoisie will never give them freely away.
All racism is wrong. Attacks on Jews because they are ‘Jews’ is wrong, just as attacks on Palestinians, just because they are ‘Palestinians’ is also equally wrong.
As a consequence, the George Cross and the Union Jack flags are symbols of English racism, nationalism and hate. Like the Nazi German swastika of WWII, these flags denote a very clear ‘belonging’ and ‘exclusion’. As English (British) nationalism has its basis in race-hate and racial segregation, it is in fact a form of ‘National Socialism’, or ‘Nazism’.
