https://www.salon.com/2021/10/12/black-flag-understanding-the-trumpists-latest-threatening-symbol/


"In one troubling new development, Trump supporters have begun flying all-black American flags, in an implicit threat to harm or kill their opponents — meaning nonwhite people, "socialist liberals," Muslims, vaccinated people and others deemed to be "enemies" of "real America." As media critic Eric Boehlert recently noted, the liberal opinion site Living Blue in Texas is sounding the alarm about the specific meaning of the black flag and the Republican-fascists support for terrorism and other political violence. That post, "Are Your Republican Neighbors Planning on Killing You?", merits lengthy quotation:

It didn't take long to find hundreds of videos where these Trumpers and so-called patriots were hanging black American flags. ...

Black American flags are the flags that mean "no quarter shall be given." They are the opposite of the white flag of surrender.

According to the people on TikTok and the Sun (British tabloid), the black American flag originated in the civil war and was flown by the Confederates.

It means that they will not surrender, will not take prisoners, and are willing to die for their cause. It means they will execute their enemies.

Who are their enemies? Pretty much any non-Conservative. You know, Democrats, Liberals, LGBTQ, BIPOC, and the vaccinated. ..."
>no quarter shall be given

The fucking feeling is mutual. Well, I'm fucking waiting. Magat faggots

Boomers legitimately believed Q would save them in two weeks like the last five minutes of their favorite television series. Boomers will buy whatever symbols their favorite bloggers advertise and wave them with no further knowledge.

It is exactly the same as when the FBI entrapped a literal down syndrome retard who thought the agent was his friend.

I've never heard of the "black american flag"
>According to the people on TikTok and the Sun (British tabloid), the black American flag originated in the civil war and was flown by the Confederates.
"People on TikTok" is the source?
>>
>>944993
Of course tick-tok isnt a fucking source, but they have a narrative and need to spin it.

Flying the black flag stems from the Napoleonic era moreso the naval realm but the Prussians were also fond of using it on land. It simply means "we arent taking prisoners"
>>
>>944999
oh, so you do admit you aren't taking prisoners? ok thanks limp dick

Im not American and I am not flying any flags you rent free fucking schizo

Do you want them to take prisoners?

I want them to suck my dick after they finish taking a nap. Y'all aren't doing anything. Made a bunch of flag merchants richer.

Its an insult to share communities with these class traitor cretins. Knowing that if pushed hard enough they'd willingly do the violent dirty work of the wealthy, even if it possibly means killing their own neighbors.

I want them to shut the fuck up and sit down.

There was an interesting thread on /his/ the other day about Spanish instability prior to the Civil War. Something really interesting came up - there were these left wing gangs going around killing various reactionary leaders/thinkers/organizers. Initially the Spanish reactionaries were pretty disorganized and whatnot so the killings continued for ~18 months without anything really happening. Then, randomly, a gang of reactionaries went and shot down a group of leftists. The result? Endless leftwing gnashing of teeth over the "first martyr" and how horrible this was and that it was evidence of the evil of the reactionaries.

Same phenomenon happened in the civil war - only the scale was gargantuan. At the outset of the war the Spanish left committed a laundry list of massacres and atrocities - killing preists, raping nuns, killing entire families of landowners (their usual shit). Then as the war progressed the reactionaries started doing it with mass executions of leftists and, again, there was a great gnashing of the teeth and much screeching about how horrible this was and that it was evidence of the evil of the reactionaries.

My understanding of the happenings in Germany suggests that a similar phenomenon occurred, not too sure on Italy though as I dont know very much about Franco. Italian political history has always been too theatrical for me.

The point I am making is having read through the thread and the sauce therein its made up my mind on the cycle of violence between the left and the right. People dont just wake up one day and randomly say "fuck it, shoot all the communists" - its generally egged on by years of violence until the right and most of the center just fucking snap and go warcrime crazy.

Yeah, you know what you're talking about lmaooo. Fucking take a lead pill reactionary
>>
>>945054
>oh noes you mixed up your dictators and referred to Franco instead of Mussolini after writing a long post about Spain! HA! DISREGARDED!
>>
>>945056
kek i did it again. Franco on the brain today.
>>
>>945056
Its blatantly wrong.

After the Spanish Left won in 1936's elections, Franco and the Nationalists had a little fit and decided to launch a coup from Morocco. Fucking reactionaries never change. They always deflect and warp history to suit their needs. Like with this flaccid attempt spinning a historical narrative to pin everything on the left.

Not him but at least he came to the thread with more than his dick in his hands
>>
>>945067
>Its blatantly wrong.
>After the Spanish Left won in 1936's elections, Franco and the Nationalists had a little fit and decided to launch a coup from Morocco
This predated the civil war.
>>
>>945074
The election and social conditions were the catalyst. Kicked off by nationalists. Fuck off
>>
>>945067
>Its blatantly wrong.
>In 1935, the government led by the Radical Republican Party went through a series of crises. President Niceto Alcalá-Zamora, who was hostile to this government, called another election. The Popular Front won the 1936 general election with a narrow victory. Some scholars consider that election rigged. The revolutionary left-wing masses took to the streets and freed prisoners. In the thirty-six hours following the election, sixteen people were killed (mostly by police officers attempting to maintain order or to intervene in violent clashes) and thirty-nine were seriously injured. Also, fifty churches and seventy conservative political centres were attacked or set ablaze.[73]
Before the Coup
>In sparking an uprising, the non-anarchist socialists, like the anarchists, manifested their conviction that the existing political order was illegitimate.[67] The Spanish historian Salvador de Madariaga, an Azaña supporter and an exiled vocal opponent of Francisco Franco, wrote a sharp criticism of the left's participation in the revolt: "The uprising of 1934 is unforgivable. The argument that Mr Gil Robles tried to destroy the Constitution to establish fascism was, at once, hypocritical and false. With the rebellion of 1934, the Spanish left lost even the shadow of moral authority to condemn the rebellion of 1936."[68]
Before the election
>>
>>945079
>The election and social conditions were the catalyst
Predated the election.

See, your behavior emphasizes the accuracy of my observation
>no no no look at the evil of the reactionaries in the coup! please ignore the preceding 20 years of left wing violence.
>>
>>945082
>>no no no look at the evil of the reactionaries in the coup! please ignore the preceding 20 years of left wing violence.
Modern, American equivalence
>no no no look at the evil of the reactionaries on the Jan 6 insurrection! please ignore the preceding 6 months of rioting, succession and insurrection!

Its absolutely remarkable.
>>
>>945082
Yeah, and right-wing violence outscales left-wing violence, always.

Its fucking class war. Acknowledge it for what it is and be honest with yourself. Be honest that you're doing the dirty work of the ruling classes, and that you're a fucking traitor to your own people. I don't have any illusions about this. If this is war, this is war.
>>
>>945086
>Yeah, and right-wing violence outscales left-wing violence, always.
I'm not even a part of this but I know your wrong because of the Soviet purges, the Cambodian purges, and I'm sure there's others but I'm not a history buff

Your a midwit if you take the "always them never us" mentality and apply it to anything, especially history
>>
>>945086
>If this is war, this is war.
Precisely, you will provoke the right until they respond and then you will cry about it.

>Be honest that you're doing the dirty work of the ruling classes
I dont give a shit about your extreme larping league, I just want to be left alone.

they'd have to kill me before I cry about it

Now that In no uncertain terms you've thrown out any semblance of objectivism, I'd say that means you lost your argument against /his/anon

Nice projection faggot

Were Spanish newspapers also mostly run by leftists?
>>
>>945101
The person you're asking seems to know more about history than I do, but for what I know about mass media and specifically newsprint, historically most press has been owned by business magnates of one sort or another and historically have just been outlets for pushing their business interests
>>
>>945049
yeah i dunno pal, think i'd be pretty ashamed to admit i got my knowledge of history, esp something as politicized as the spanish civil war, from fucking /his/.

these magat cowards would never. They bothered to make a flag because they hope SOMEONE ELSE will be inspired to do the deed.
I'm still waiting for my 'deadly vaccine' to kill me. I had my 2nd jab in may. Stiilll waiting for those horrible never listed symptoms of "DYING OF THE VAX" to show up. I actually wouldd be okay with dying as it means my back pain wont grind me into a slow early grave instead

fuck trumpers. easily the lowest life to ever crawl upon this fine country.
>>
>>944786
Funny thing, that. Biden and the Democrats went to such great effort to destroy the authority of the Presidency to govern, that now they're in power, they're having to deal with the sabotage they'd done nerfing the President and the legitimacy of government. The Bidening of America will end in hyper inflation, because their only impulse is to print more money they don't have and can't repay.
>>

>their only impulse is to print more money they don't have and can't repay.
said a member of the party that has never once balanced the national budget despite it being their very publicly stated goal for the past 45 years.

This article literally says it's a commentary
Why has it not been deleted for being editorial/blog
>>
>>946915
Is a trend from leftists on here especially the retard who types in titles like a fucking idiot "MAGAT spill beans,GOLDAN SHOWA, WHITE HUXLEY POLICE BLACK BEATING"
i suspect its the same mongoloid creating this garbage again and again to bury most actual news.. because right now most actual news are either about biden/democrats fucking up or some woke insanity.
