"Sorry not sorry, I still want MY movements to have focus, clarity and A LEADER or leadership council, and a mission statement."

Well two out of three ain't bad Jeff but I guess you may not have considered why the third is of no use to the anarchists.
The first two attributes you've listed are present and makes me wonder why you would present it as not being so?

I've been looking at Syria to see how the movement is working out there. Time will tell I guess.

The way I see it, there's a rift in the two ruling parties of the American empire. On the one hand you have the republicans war between inclusive fascism and exclusive facism.
In the democratic party you have a fight between fascism lite and representative democracy.

You can guess as to which groups are representing the warring ideologies of either camps.

Another good read from Taibbi just out delves into Bannon's elite exclusive fascism:
Fire Steve Bannon

A friend texted me this little ditty. I don't know the source.

(sing merrily)

If you're a Nazi and you're fired, it's your fault. (clap, clap)
If you're a Nazi and you're fired, it's your fault. (clap, clap)
If you were spotted in the mob and now you've lost your f++king job,
If you're a Nazi and you're fired, it's your fault. (clap, clap)

The "free speech rally" in Boston fizzled spectacularly as peaceful counter-protesters outnumbered them about 50:1.

One reporter said there were about twenty people at the "Free Speech" rally. Another said a few dozen.

The counter protesters were said to number between fifteen and twenty thousand.

Sends a message, doesn't it?

That's about the right ratio. Same for Nazis versus anti-nazis all over the country. Even in the South, even among Republicans, people in Nazi uniforms spewing hate and throwing Nazi salutes are vastly outnumbered by people who HATE these guys.

They're vastly outnumbered by Jews!

So Nazis, I recommend you go crawl back under the rocks you slithered out from. Or even better, go get some psychiatric help before you end up in prison.

Anarchy IS a Leftwing political philosophy. Hmm

I support AntiFa because they will punch a American Nazi in the face. smile

There was a time in America when kicking a Nazi's butt, was cheered in America. Eighty years later, Trump, CONservatives, and Alt-Righters call Nazi butt-kickers "trouble makers."
