I am sure we could find artist to honor who weren't commies.


Your president and party standard-bearer is a KGB puppet.

glen says she's a commie, so nothing else matters.

Of course, he voted 3 times for the white supremacist Strom Thurmond, but that's okay.


I get it you guys on the left only honor the "good communist".

Well, there's Frida Kahlo exhibitions all over the U.S. that need to be shut down, I suppose.

Clearly, MoMA in New York City and the Nat'l Museum of Women in the Arts have to take her stuff down, right away.

Somebody needs to tell them she was a commie. :roll:

P.S. I think Geoffrey Rush does an excellent portrayal of Leon Trotsky in Frida. :mrgreen:

Weirdly enough, the one place that hung a Diego Rivera mural in the U.S. was the American Stock Exchange Luncheon Club.

If it matters, she was Leon Trotsky's lover.

Anyway, Trotsky opposed Stalin, and as a result, as Zowie said, he got the icepick treatment in Mexico and they had him assassinated.

Rivera was commissioned to paint a wall in Rockefeller Center when they were building it. As you enter 30 Rock, it's on your right by the elevators. The Rockefellers had cleared the drawing, but Diego changed it by putting Lenin next to Rockefeller himself. Rockefeller was not amused. Diego was paid and sent on his way. They painted over it and now it has the same bizarre heroic-materialist art as the rest of the lobby. (I like the crotch shot on the ceiling, personally.)

Rivera finally painted the mural in Mexico. It's the one where the guy is sitting under some kind of science telescope or something pulling levers and the whole idea is that Humankind giveth and Humankind taketh away, and it's reached some kind of a critical point where it could go either way. Kind of like now.

The party you vote for and support is in bed with the Kremlin/KGB, right now Glen. Right at this very moment. How does that make you feel?


Well according to glen, he trusts them.

Hey did you see The Cradle Will Rock?

Such a great movie. I have some Theatre Arts mags with Hallie Flanagan articles in it. And as much as I can't stand Susan Sarandon's current Bernieville politics, she was soooooo good in it.

Lol

Isn't it funny how different your reaction is to communist vs. alt-right and KKK?

I mean, you'd NEVER vote for a communist, but you pulled the lever three times for Strom Thurmond.

honor communist.


glen is famous for his bitching and moaning about "Commies".

But glen also has no problem with a Russian Backed, Russsian Supported Repubican in the White House.

glen "Does not trust Democrats", but has no problem with a Russian Backed, Russian Supported Republican in the White House and would rather have Russian Backed, Russian Supported Republican in the White House rather than a duly elected Democrat.

glen either chooses to deliberately ignore or conveniently forget that Vladimir Putin was a Colonel in the Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti (K.G.B.), "The Sword and The Shield" of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

glen is a voting member of a American Political Party that bends over backwards in their support for and hero worship of Putin.

glen does not trust Democrats, but defends and supports a President and a Party that supports and defends a former Colonel in the K.G.B.

glen needs to shut the hell up.

Putin, yes, was a commie. KGB spook, real good at what he did, and loving every minute of it. And now it seems as if he's a hero to uninformed righties. The contradictions in our current excuse for politics just keep getting stranger.

But heaven forbid we should name a street after a painter who was a communist party member at a time when the Depression had put the capitalist system into pretty wide disrepute, and when it was starting to feel more like fascism was the major threat.

---

Cradle Will Rock. Tim Robbins. How'd I ever miss that one? Hmmmmm, I have to fix this.

I think you'll really like it! (Okay well, I really like it :) )

I saw it in the theater and was really taken with Cherry Jones in a time when it was even harder to be an out public figure than it is, now. But it was a liberal feel-good movie when we could really use it, right in the Bush 41-Clinton era which at the time felt to me like the Weimar Republic. We'd already gotten Don't Ask Don't Tell and the Defense of Marriage Act slapped on us, and things were looking pretty bleak.

I think about International Women's Day today with its roots in SOCIALISM :lol: in a time before women even had a vote here, or elsewhere. Today, I saw a lot of "lean in" types of posts around IWD2018 as if the day was somehow about individual achievement as opposed to women going on strike to better our social position.

So The Cradle Will Rock imo did a really good job of bringing the interwar period, and highlighting/underscoring the stupidity and venality of congressional conservatives alive.

Tim Robbins excels at all the things that you mention. Seriously, I don't know how this one slipped under my radar. I've reserved it for pickup at the local library (which has a lot of DVDs). We're ultra busy, but I would imagine that a screening impends, more sooner than later.

-------

I got schooled on IWD some years back when I was writing the calendar for a lefty peace group you'd have heard of, and various women's organizations were sending me stuff. I did my research and since then it's been one of the few of these days that I take dead seriously. This year, it was downright inspiring. You are right, though, that it seems to be mainstreaming, like with McD's inverting their M's into W's. Really, people?

There's a lot of these occasions that have origins that we're generally not allowed to learn about in school. Glen will be shocked to know that IWD came from people that he really could accurately call socialists. Some of them were even (shudder) commies.

Board of Education considers expert panel to rename SF schools - SF Examiner

Good.

Quote:
Sanchez identified Fairmount Elementary School, located at 65 Chenery St. in Glen Park, as an example of a school that is seeking to change its name to honor labor and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta. Fairmount is currently undergoing an internal community process to initiate the renaming.

The resolution would be a separate process to address “schools that wouldn’t come to us for a name change,” according to Sanchez.

The effort is part of a larger movement across the country to reexamine historical figures, icons and names of institutions, schools and streets in an effort to address past wrongdoings. In New Orleans, four statues commemorating confederate leaders were removed last year, and San Francisco leaders recently voted to remove a controversial monument depicting a Native American sitting at the feet of a Mexican vaquero and Franciscan monk.

In 2016, school board Commissioner Matt Haney called for the renaming of schools such as George Washington High School, sparking a national debate. Washington was a slave owner.

Haney called the resolution “thoughtful, deliberate and intended to ensure that the voices of our schools communities lead this process,” adding that its intent was not to “force a conversation at a [school] like Washington,” but to establish a districtwide process that is “available and clear to school communities who want that conversation.”

“We have very few schools in our city that are named after important Latino or Chinese individuals,” Haney said. “In light of the fact that these are the two largest student communities … they should see themselves more fully reflected in the names of the schools they attend.”


It might not be that big a deal, except for we're a city in which it was ILLEGAL for Asian students to attend school with the whites. Oh and if we weren't living in a national environment where a white nationalist administration intent on reviving the white racist conservative police state is in power. #maga

And as anyone can probably guess, I could not care less about white conservative bellyaching about political correctness. Yes, it's no longer politically mandated to cram the white conservative lifestyle down the throats of the entire populace via discriminatory public policy and forced memorabilia of your most violent and lethal state actors.

Live with it; learn to love it.

White conservatism is a destructive, metasticizing cancer on our country. Always has been. I will be glad when these bigots' names on public spaces like parks, street names and schools go the way of Nazi monuments in Germany circa 1946.

Let me clarify that, I don't trust liberal democrats as a general rule. However there are exceptions.

What is it they dont trust?

40 hour workweeks? Benefit packages? Safe workplaces? Clean air? Clean water? Proper and safe infrastructure? Respect from around the world?

These are all things we would NOT have were it not for liberals.

They do not trust equal rights and equal opportunity.

That's because they cannot compete. Equal rights and equal opportunity means they must compete instead of being government-dependent on whites-first results males-only results.

To them, if it's not white christian males rule with an iron thumb result, the world's biggest size queens whimper about reverse discrimination, reverse racism, women are just golddigging slut oppressors, the lgbtq's are getting the government to force us confederates to bake a cake, and other absurd complaints.

40 hour workweeks, benefits, workplace safety, etc., means the people they worship must compete instead of having handed everything to them, instead of the most ruthless, murderous, genocidal, and self-loathing/destructive wins.

Conservatives do not understand anything else so when they're confronted with ANYTHING else, they start crying communism socialism. Glen does this on a weekly basis. Any situation where the government doesn't rig things in their favor is communism socialism to them.

I remember the first time I heard you talk about all this coming down to the white population's inability to compete. Or this rightwing white population that causes all the misery for the world. At first I didnt quite know what you meant, but overtime it made perfect sense.

How I would not at first get it is because of my white privilege and having spent all these years enjoying it even though I didnt know I had it.
