/r/AnarchismRemoved post of ISIS member being beaten to death

from Rad_q-a-v_[M] to  /r/Anarchism/  sent 4 hours ago

I tagged it, but decided that it doesn't deserve a place on r/Anarchism and removed it. This has nothing to do with Anarchism and is just a mob bashing the shit out of an ISIS member. Feel free to reverse this removal if you feel strongly that it is productive content, but it's my strong opinion that shit is only triggering and can produce very little productive conversation beyond "YEAH FUCK ISIS".

Is there a way to tell what member reported a post? I do most of reddit via phone and I can't see such detail.

What does "productive conversation" even mean?

Conversation even tangentially relates to Anarchists. Kurdish YPJ beating the shit out of them? Sure. But this is just a unnamed mob beating.

Click the Mod queue button on mod tools. Usually you'll see something on the front page being reported as well but maybe mobile doesn't do that.

Someone beating up a Neo-Nazi isn't necessarily anarchist either, yet we allow that.

I would remove that unless it was specifically tied to some event and news. If someone just posted a video of randoms kicking a neo-Nazi it wouldn't stay up very long if I was around.

There was complete agreement in the meta thread. You are an apologist for genocide and apartheid that is enough of a good reason.

re: you've been banned from /r/Anarchism

from punkswcleankitchens[M] via  /r/Anarchism/  to komnene sent 7 hours ago

Nearly every comment you've made on this subreddit is nothing but weak apologism for Israel's racist genocide against the Palestinians. That kind of thing isn't acceptable here, so you can take your shilling elsewhere. And furthermore, using the word "fucktarded" is not fucking acceptable.

re: you've been banned from /r/Anarchism

from komnene via  /r/Anarchism/  to thecoleslaw sent 7 hours ago

You still couldn't prove that there is genocide or apartheid and you never will, because I actually know quite a lot about this topic by now and there is no racial segragation in Israel. I asked you to provide proof and you couldn't and yet you still say it over and over.

There is no such thing, deal with it.

None of you give a shit about the Israeli/Jewish side, none of you ever tried to read anything about this topic from the other side, you run with a preconcieved narrative based on Mao's Third Worldism that emerged in the 70s without questioning.

You really think all those people in Germany and Austria which are part of the Antideutsch movmenet, many of whose many studied Jewish Studies, of which have for a long time researched this topic - that they are all fascists? Apologizers for genocide? That it is that easy? People that were part of the left movement for years, just wrong like that, and many people agreeing with them - also wrong? Or just self-haters?

What about Theodor Adorno from the Frankfurt School? He over and over supported Israel, correctly pointed out how antisemitism works, emerges and how it relates to Israel, he condemned Arab efforts to destroy Israel. Is he a fascist? Is Theodor Adorno a reactionary? Is he an apologist for genocide? How about you actually try reading what he says, what people like me say, without dismissing it? Again, why don't you provide proof for genocide and Apartheid?

Now, I don't mind the ban, I expected it (and I said so in a past post). Because i know you, i know BDS, I know the antizionists. I know all your arguments already and I know I'd get banned for not thinking that zionism is worse than other nationalisms.

Anyways good night and do yourself a favor and read Adorno. I know you won't care what I say anyways, I can't convince you, I can only convince the undecided person that might have read along our exchange. Better delete it before anyone gets buys "zionist propaganda".

I post a lot on the Israeli topic, because I happen to disagree with the mainstream narrative thus I have a lot to write and post. I am seriously not a shill.

Israel's racist genocide against the Palestinians

You couldn't tell me last time how Israel is more racist than other states, and you couldn't tell me last time how Israel is committing genocide against Palestinans and you won't be able to do so next time, either. Because it is simply not true. Anyways.

using the word "fucktarded" is not fucking acceptable

True, I very much apologize for this one.

Maybe one day people will actually read Adorno and call you people out for what you really are: A bunch of annoying antisemites that constantly make up crap about Israel, over and over and over again without ever providing proof and never questioning your behavior. Never questioning whether it is really okay to show unconditional soldiarty with Palestinian political groups that are often openly antisemitic and even Abbas denies or relativizd the holocaust.

Once hundreds of thousands of Jews are nuked by Iran, killed by Hezbollah or Hamas I will certainly blame people like you who will then say: "Oh, they provoked antisemitism by trying to build a state in Palestine" and then be happy about the dead, evil, evil, evil Jews.

You obviously weren't familiar with the arguments I layed out.

have no understanding of the oppression Palestinians face

Sure sure, you are so so noble and you care so so much about the poor and oppressed peoples of the world. I should totally recognize that. If it weren't painfully obvious that Israel and its crimes are targeted disproportionally compared to crimes by other countries, that you obviously care more about people killed by Jews than people killed by non-Jews, a phenomenon popular in the left. This is why people regularly go on the streets to protest against Israel, against the Gaza War but not against Assad, who massacred tens of thousands of people. You're just a hypocrite.

Nah really, just read. Just read and read and read and read. Visit Israel, hang and talk with people. What else am I supposed to say? You are trapped in the superstitions of antisemitism, of demonizing the Jewish state more than any other, you and a big part of the left. Hard to get out of that one.

It is made all the worse for thier propaganda's embrace of democracy and human rights. I am completely familiar with the arguments you make. They are not new or interesting in the slightest they are the same arguements used by all zionists to pretend they are persecuted and to excuse their genocidal actions.

Lmao I bet you think I'm some kinda actual shill for Israel whose only purpose is to make the country look good. Keep your antisemitic superstitions in check, friend. People can be left and not against Israel, but that blows your preconcieved mind. Again, actually read things from the Jewish or Israeli perspective, maybe you will learn. And if you are right, maybe you will argue your point better, bring the truth out about the Jews and kill their supporters (me)!

Israel is a Jewish state, founded by Jews escaping the holocaust, needing safety from antisemitism. Everytime you say you want Israel gone you want to deprive French Jews from possibly emigrating to safety. They are living in a country in which they are being killes and cannot appear publicly religious, because people like you demonize Jews by making the Jewish state out to be the great Satan. It is obviously about Jews. Not even Chomsky supports BDS, you kniw?

Israel is only supported by the West since the 70s. Brits were supporting the Arabs. And Israel would obviously exist without Western help.

Israel is a functioning liberal democracy, it's not propaganda.

Also, here's your antisemitism again. Normally, with discrimination, it is the oppressed that decides when it is oppression and when not. Strangely, with antisemitism, it's YOU who somehow decides whether Jews are prosecuted or not. And YOU can dismiss it somehow as propaganda.

A lot of the people who want min banned are the same people who have a lot of sockpuppets.

Also, min is one of the few people left complaining about moderation - the kind of people who get banned legitimately are also (unsurprisingly) against moderation.

Everyone surrounding the argument about min is a troll, basically, on both sides.

As much as I don't like min either, I want to see the right people removed through the process the sub has agreed on, not by being bullied out by another group of fucking trolls.

You could ask the same about any of the assholes we ban, but I think there is a point. No, it won't stop them, I mean RES has an account switcher, anybody can just do whatever obviously, but first and foremost it will slow them down. More importantly, it sends a message to people trying to use this space that such behavior will not be tolerated and is generally not supported. I've met several people in the real world who have given up on using this sub in the past because they perceived the mods as being sympathetic to the fucks like min, and that is something I think we want to avoid.

Proof? Personally, this is the only reddit account I've ever had. Frankly that sounds like bullshit because you can't come up with a good reason min should be allowed to stay.

Everyone surrounding the argument about min is a troll, basically, on both sides.

Again, bullshit. People are just sick of having the same fucking argument for 2 years, and when something happens and he finally gets banned, someone like you comes along to save his ass on a technicality yet again.

You're so worried about drama, you'll lower someone's mod permissions without so much as a warning, but how much have your actions to defend min clogged up mod mail. How much of the recent drama, aka people's legitimate frustration, rests solely on your decisions.

Personally I'm getting really sick of your holier than thou, savior of r/@, these idiots couldn't possibly run a message board without me arrogance.

I think it's more about not having the mod team devolve into witch-hunting. To be fair... it's not really that difficult to ignore the what is relatively mild and ambiguous trolling. All this talk about crypto-fascism but if it solely manifests itself in "mods banned too many people!" I don't know if it matters.

I changed the permissions back. Generally it's best to avoid responding to trolls in modmail, since it clutters up the modmail with unimportant messages, but I don't think sync0pate should have disabled your modmail because of that. And a bunch of the other new mods have been doing the same thing, so I don't see why you were singled out to have permissions removed.

It wasn't followed by that message, it was sent before it. I then saw Sync0pates message, took his wishes to heart, and stopped. Further, /u/punkswcleankitchens was involved in the same dialogue with the same troll, and even continued to respond to them after I stopped. Nothing was done with their permissions. Syncopate chose to single me out and unilaterally change my permissions without telling me or anybody else. This is really fucked up.

Exactly. In the conversation I was involved in that he seems to be referring to I actually listened to him and stopped, /u/punkswcleankitchens continued and was not singled out. Even if you consider him changing the permissions reasonable ( which obviously it's not) why single me out, and not tell me or anybody else about it? He could have simply had a conversation with me here or on IRC. This is serious WTF material, I am going to give it some more thought, by I am strongly considering writing a proposal asking Sync0pate to step down from moderating.

Just because they were the person at that time who kept responding to a troll. I did it because there was some other stuff in modmail I needed to keep an eye on and that was the only way of filtering it out.

Then I forgot to change it back, sorry.

re: Permissions Part 2

Just because they were the person at that time who kept responding to a troll. I did it because there was some other stuff in modmail I needed to keep an eye on and that was the only way of filtering it out.

This is simply untrue. There were other mods doing the same and you chose to single me out for some reason you are not explaining.

Then I forgot to change it back, sorry.

Anyway, no big deal, change them back, let's stop encouraging trolls...

I don't think telling trolls to go away is encouraging them, and screwing with one of the mods who is trying to help you make the trolls go away is a bit like shooting yourself in the foot isn't it?

You didn't tell me or anybody else. Nothing I did was stopping you or anybody else from using modmail. Other mods did the same as myself, and you chose to ignore their behavior. I was happy to stop upon request, I did when you requested, and you changed my permissions anyway. It is very hard for me to not see that as malicious on some level.

Censorship is a symptom of a weak mind, and even weaker ideas. When you centralize accepted thought, you are only building a house of cards that cannot weather the next storm or outside criticism. Using ad hominems like 'troll' are only thought-terminating cliches. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmuzrHwMkMU&index=87&list=PL3nwqCE5fVLdu9ogVRGnyQZLa3MRbMVn7

We ban them for defending cops. I don't see what the difference is between that and actively advocating for the oppression and needless murder of millions of animals, or perpetuating the (hyper-capitalist and industrial) system that commodifies them into existences.
Sorry, modmail probably isn't the place for this discussion, but I'm resolute about making sure some level of animal liberation isn't ignored and is held up as important and worthwhile.

The user was The Narcissistic Idiot (well, fitting). They were banned like 12 days ago so we don't actually need to worry about anything here.

I don't think we ban people for simply defending the existence of cops or being liberal, it's trolling, spamming and flaming that earns bans. Similarly with vegan/animal rights stuff, if you're trolling and flaming then you get banned. That seems to cover the vast majority of cases that have caused problems.

I suppose there is a difference in that I don't think it's sub policy to ban someone for actively asserting (without trolling etc) they like meat and advocating people continue to eat meat, as opposed to advocating the cops continuing to kill people, which would definitely get a ban in short order. Since this is not specifically a sub about the animal rights branches of anarchism, I don't think this should change regardless of our personal opinions.

" not a necessary component of anarchist thought" But I though anarchism was against authority and oppression. Anarchy is not a static idea. Its an ever-evolving act of rebellion against the oppression of any towards the freedom of all. Shit is only controversial when an oppressor's authority is challenged.

I just don't see a meaningful difference between these two scenarios. I understand what you are saying 100%, but I just don't necessarily agree with your stance right here. Which is fine that we disagree - it'd be weird if we did agree about everything, but I'm still pretty adamant about this.

I know, and I'm not really adamant personally either way. I'm just pointing out that our sub has to include both camps on this particular issue, so we have to allow both opinions, even if we (strongly) dislike one of them. At least we don't have to put up with Maoists like they do in /r/socialism.

@va:

But I though anarchism was against authority and oppression.

It is, but traditionally those only have meaning when referring to humans, and as I've been saying plenty of anarchists come down on both sides of the argument. I don't think we should institute a policy that favors either one side. I don't want to have the debate now, I'm just saying that it exists and we should act as if it does regardless of our personal feelings on the matter.

And give up the equivocation shit either way, it's ridiculous and offensive and not logical. If you think the existence and function of policing in society is the same as the existence and function of meat consumption in society than bring it to an argument outside this place.

If we want to talk about the stupidest irony ever I'm the one that advocated to reduce his ban sentence. Fuck.

Naw you were just using your head comrade. I still think we should wait to see how they act when (if) they come back before moving forward with a permanent ban, which the people on meta gave us the go ahead to use so we don't have to put up with any more trolling with this person. The ice couldn't be any thinner imo, but maybe he'll pull through and cut the shit who knows
