Ep 73 - Hard Hat Riot w/ Billy O'Connor & John Tormey

In this special episode of The Antifada, Sean KB is joined by fellow building tradesmen Billy and John to do a little workers inquiry on themselves. We discuss our own work histories and how we became radicalized through historical events and our experiences on the job. We poke holes in the JD Vance 'white working class' mythos that sees cultural regression as the wellspring of Trumpism. Lastly, we talk about the structures we've encountered in our particular unions and how the working class might overcome the provincialism and conservatism of business unionism. Outro: Billy Bragg - Which Side Are You On? Check out John's excellent article here: https://thebaffler.com/salvos/known-assailants-tormey

Ep 73 - Hard Hat Riot w/ Billy O'Connor & John Tormey

PREVIEW: History is a Weapon 5 - The Rise and Fall of Suburbia (2/2)

Matt Christman and Sean KB bring our story of suburbia up to the present moment, when the periphery is in crisis and urban areas are suffering late-stage gentrification: How was Los Angeles the archetypal American city? Who developed suburbia and why? Which class interests are upheld by the primacy of real estate in American political economy? And whither suburban life in the 21st century? All this and more along with an analysis of that class fraction everyone's talking about these days: the PrOfEsSiOnAL MaNaGeRiAL CLaSs!

Ep 72 - Minions Night w/ Minion Death Cult

We celebrate MISCHIEF NIGHT with the scariest show on the internet: MINION DEATH CULT. Hosts Anthony Edwards and Tony Boswell find the scariest, most derange, and dumbest boomer posts online and read them slow enough to truly grasp their inanity. After sharing some dumb Halloween stories, we look at an evangelical plot to infiltrate costume shops, commemorate last years' Nov 4 Antifa supersoldier revolution, recall the Infowars hit piece on Jamie earlier this year, and close out with some Tim Pool Joker-posting. Follow Anthony, Tony, and MDC on Twitter and support them on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/miniondeathcult Closing song: Marilyn Manson - This is Halloween

PREVIEW: History is a Weapon 5: The Rise and Fall of Suburbia w/ Matt Christman

Matt and Sean dive into the historical materialist trenches once more! On this HIAW, we address suburbia and its discontents: How has the unique social geography of the United States affected its political and economic development? How are class relations reflected in the built environment? Why did the suburbs arise as a unique solution to social crisis in the post-war era? And what sort of mentalities and ideologies arose out of these milieux?

PREVIEW: Che Guevara and the Argentine Elections w/ Bad Empanada

The first episode of Andy's newest side project focusing on Latin American politics and history, Talkin' 'Tina! BreadTuber BAD EMPANADA joins us to talk about the upcoming elections in Argentina that will return Kirchernismo to power after four years of Mauricio Macri's neoliberal buffoonery, but can left-populist Peronism walk the country back from the brink of economic collapse, or will there be a new insurrection like in 2000? And who do the Posadists support? After that we discuss the life and politics of Che Guevara and the claims that he was a blood-soaked homophobic murderer. We talk about the excesses of the Cuban government, the extent of Che's role in them, and some of our favorite stories of the revolution and after.

UNLOCKED: History is a Weapon #4 - Pivotal Decade (1970s) w/ Matt Christman part I

In this installment, Matt and Sean shoot a little shit about the radical geography of Europe before we plunge into the pool of disco and despair that was the 1970s: how the global crisis upended the 'Golden Age' of American capitalism, how Richard Nixon rode a wave of aggrievement to become the voice of a 'silent majority' in backlash, and how the uneasy alliance between organized labor and the Democratic Party began to fracture as stagflation undermined the post-war compromise. Part II (another goddamn hour-and-a-half of historical goodness: the complete the story of how this thing called neoliberalism came to dominance, how it, too, is now crumbling, and how we might dialectically overcome the limitations of working class self-organization evident in previous cycles of struggle) available here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/antifadas-is-4-w-27337372 Outro: The Mekons - 'Hello Cruel World'

Ep 70 - The Communist Case For Open Borders w/ Ross Wolfe

Everyone loves Bernie Sanders and hates Angela Nagle, but when it comes to the enforcement of borders, their politics are basically the same. Using the power of HISTORICAL MATERIALISM, returning guest Ross Wolfe (@RossWolfe) traces the origins of the modern nation state, explains the limits of economic nationalism and social democracy in one country, and makes the case for why nothing short of GLOBAL COMMUNIST REVOLUTION is necessary to avoid a descent into fascism and horror. Read Ross's piece, 'Nationalism, Borders and the State' at The Brooklyn Rail or MR online. Outro music: Antischism - Lines on a Map

Ep 69 - Abolish Justice Hubs w/ Nadja Guyot

Two years ago, prison abolitionists succeeded in convincing the government of the city of New York to agree to close the torturous jail on Rikers Island. The solution? A kinder, friendlier, "neighborhood" jail in each borough! With a decisive city council vote coming up, prison abolitionist Nadja Guyot from No New Jails joins us to talk about the fight against these absurd "Justice Hubs," decarceration, and practical abolitionism. https://www.nonewjails.nyc/ https://twitter.com/nadjaguyot https://twitter.com/nonewjails_nyc Notes: Rebranding Mass Incarceration: The Lippman Commission and Carceral Devolution in New York City Zhandarka Kurti & Jarrod Shanahan: https://search.proquest.com/openview/7f95de7b70ab31d0f92c51bc61ade9df/1.pdf?pq-origsite=gscholar&cbl=48122 A Jail to End all Jails: https://urbanomnibus.net/2017/12/jail-end-jails/ Justice Hubs: https://www.citylab.com/equity/2017/07/designing-the-opposite-of-rikers/533361/ Kalief Browder: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/24/nyreg...
