The tireless Workers and Peasants of the Berlusconi Youth have been undergoing what one might call “holiday-style treatment” for the past few months.
But then something came along so bizarre, so objectively fucked-up, that even We had to emerge from our heavily guarded compound to issue a public statement.
(See relevant, above)
What do the Workers and Peasants of the Berlusconi Youth have to add to the debate? Nothing that hasn’t been said in the various articles and blog posts floating around the interweb already. The analogy with shari’a is entirely justified in my opinion (and members of ostensibly secularist organizations who immediately claimed racism probably revealed more about their politically opportunistic and intellectually bankrupt assumptions about Islam than about any ostensible prejudice from their antagonists; that is, any analogy with Islam must be some reactionary put-down) as are the comments suggesting that at least some of the difficulty arising from the absurdity of a gang of revolutionary LARPers having a go at CSI: Hackney – tell me again how that Proletarian forensic science works and why its so superior to bourgeois forensic science – is that the alleged will not have the opportunity to clear his name in a legitimate court (bourgeois puppet, kangaroo, clown, or otherwise) as are the comments pointing out that this is all rather predictable within the logic of Leninism; it’s entirely reasonable within Leninist praxis to demand the individual subordinate themselves to the good of the Party (as defined by the Central Committee, of course) since the Party, as everyone who isn’t an ultra-left adventurist or liquidationist reformist understands, carries with it the hopes for all mankind. Will Britain and the world miss the SWP? No more or less than we miss that Hale-Bopp comet cult.
