Thursday Humor? Marxist Student Group Disbands Because Members Were "Too Rich, Too White"

Authored by Matthew Stein via CampusReform.org,

A Marxist student group at Swarthmore College disbanded itself earlier this year after realizing that its members were too rich and too white to be real commies.

According to screenshots confidentially provided to Campus Reform by an individual with access to the group’s private Facebook page, the demise of the Swarthmore Anti-Capitalist Collective (SACC) came in the wake of a farewell letter from a member who had decided the group could never be an effective proponent of “unproblematized anticapitalist politics” due to its “history of abuse, racism, and even classism.”

“From my understanding SACC disbanded because they realized the makeup and tactics of their group was at odds with their espoused principles,” Swarthmore Conservative Society President Gilbert Guerra told Campus Reform.

 

“Their main support base was middle-upper class white kids who enjoy jogging.”

The farewell letter corroborates Guerra’s understanding, asserting that “SACC’s fundamental failure” was that “at its formation, it was made up of entirely white, with the exception of one person of color*, students,” and to make matters worse, “not one of [the founding members] are from low-income and/or working class backgrounds.”

Arguing that “low-income people of color should never be an afterthought in a group whose politics supposedly focus on their liberation,” the author then went on to accuse SACC of having a “history of abuse, racism, and even classism that was never adequately addressed or recognized despite constantly being brought up as an issue.”

The screenshots provided to Campus Reform do not include dates, but the SACC Facebook page suggests that the group may have folded at some point in late-March or April. The page has seen no activity since March 26, prior to which posts had been added on a fairly regular basis.

Campus Reform reached out to other former SACC members for their take on the group’s disbandment, but none were willing to comment.

Guerra agreed strongly with the letter-writer’s assessment that SACC was ineffective, telling Campus Reform that “SACC didn’t do anything noteworthy during their existence,” and had little impact on campus discourse.

“If anything,” he said, “I think the legacy of that particular group will turn out to be motivating some apathetic students to become involved in the Conservative Society.”

As for the future of Marxist groups on campus - which the SACC letter optimistically predicted would provide a “future for anti-capitalist organizing on this campus” - Guerra said that he expects there will be a “new Maoist group on campus in the fall,” but didn’t seem terribly concerned about its prospects.

Saying that such a group is “a foregone conclusion” because there are many leftist students at Swarthmore who want to actively “resist during the Trump Presidency,” Guerra noted that the only question now “is whether this new group will be any more sustainable that [sic] the past couple of leftist groups that have splintered and fizzled out.”

Always, these types come from the whitest enclaves.

Give the guys credit for realizing that they were in a state of cognitive disonance. That's better than 99% of the progressive organizations. For example, the global warmers don't see anything wrong with flying 3000 of their ilk halfway around the world to discuss carbon dioxide.

"We're fucked" - correct, but not because of these fools. Congratulate the Beltway/Wall Street/Zionist crowd for that outcome.   

"These tards are going to run the world some day" - incorrect. They will be latrine lackeys and butt sluts in Chinese-run re-education camps.

Probably not. The tards that run it now probably heat tjem to ot.

 

America is funny. Socialism is maligned, rightfully so, while fascist capitalism is presently destroying it all.

Victor von Doom's picture

America is funny. It embraces both Socialism and Facism simultaneously! 

And then people wonder why their country is fucked and attack each other over it!

Wait! I know what will fix the problem! WAR!  /s

So Cultural Marxism destroys regular Marxism. Non-handicapped conservatives take note, CM don't reproduce either.

When they ran out of innocent victims, Bolsheviks, Trotsyites, Maoists and the "progressive left" have always conducted internecine cannibalistic wars.

Affluent people have the time to think about things like how society is organized. Until the last hundred years and the establishment of government provided social safety nets poor people were to busy working to organize much of anything.

The Communist Party of America historically was full of duped poor people, ethnics, immigrants. Power and money was commandeered by party elitists.

 I'm noticing people who never used headphones before are using bluetooth headphones. Especially regarding jogging and working out.

Bluetooth headphones are making the walkman look in again.

A Marxist student group at Swarthmore College disbanded itself earlier this year after realizing that its members were too rich and too white to be real commies because Swarthmore College's tuition cost $49, 104 per year + $14,446 for room and board.

Marx was a fraud. The whole workers of the world unite thing was a fraud. The intent was never to give power to the lower working classes, but to have power over them. Think about it. What Marxist leader ever gave power to the people?

There is a public domain record of correspondence between Marx and an important Rabbi who referred to the talmudic premise that all belongs to the jews implicit in Marxism, and  this was the  long game.(my words). Marx agreed, the relinguishing of ownership allowed the scooping up of all by the oligaths.

This was all of note  that I just found: http://www.cobdencentre.org/2017/02/economic-ideas-karl-marx-the-man-beh...  Marx's views are like Stalins.

Marx was a life-long parasite who sucked off of his family and friend. Now that he is dead, idiots fantasise about his bullshit and make him an idol. There is a statue of the asshoe in a London park where people go to pray to it.

Even commies then admit commies should be poor.

Marvellous ideology. Not! 

Hey, follow us of you are black, we will make u poor.... seems a great deal.

They're not too rich or too white, just too dumb. Communism is a tool by the elite to centralize power.

Yeah. I infiltrated this organization. Operation Swordmore. There I was, with my sword. And I turned the lesbians and made their men jealous. It happened at the water hole where we battled other prides. I vanquished them with my sword and silver tongue.

I sent the young women back to their warren deep underground in the city to gossip and argue. The men, they cried. They became ronin. They walk the earth ashamed.

My Saccs were so huge, there was confoundation. I came hither to the gathering and dis-covered my golden sachs. It caused panic among the throng. There was dissention among the ranks. It happened so fast. The sun glinted off my smooth heavy saccs and shined in the faces of the frustrated nymphs, terrifying thier Spanish guitar folk singing Y's. It was rich. And many young women shed tons of fat and hair dye in the ensuing sword battle. I bested them all.

Now I have to cook dinner. Excuse me.
