RAIMD Declares People’s War On Christmas – It’s On, Fuck Yeah!

xmas121-copy.jpg

In Amerika, Christmas is a sick imperialist consumerist celebration of exploitation.
The Santa myth obscures the real origin of commodities. Santa is an imperialist!

Amerikans teach their children that if they are obedient to the system, a magic
jolly old White fat fart delivers goodies made by elves. Toys are not made by happy
elves at the North Pole! Toys are made by Third World workers, often child laborers,
toiling in slave-like conditions. Third World children are basically enslaved by
corporations so that First Worlders can have the latest idiotic toy or gadget.

Bill O’Reilly and similar idiots are always spewing nonsense about a so-called “war
against Christmas.” Truth be told, there has never been a war against Christmas —
until now.

RAIM-D is formally declaring an all out people’s war against Christmas in Amerika.
It’s on, piggies. It’s on. Fuck Yeah!

Screening of ‘Troublemaker’

The Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement- Denver invites you to a special screening of ‘Troublemaker,’ a groundbreaking collection of video shorts by Shubel Morgan/Proletarian Productions. Unlike anything you have ever seen before, ‘Troublemaker’ combines music, images and speech into a politically charged message of Third World liberation and revolutionary anti-imperialism.

If you have never seen video, you do not want to miss this event. Even if you have, this is still a good opportunity to catch up with RAIM, find out what we’ve been up to and get more involved with future actions and events.

This screening will be held at 1pm in room 442 of the Tivoli building [on the Auraria campus] on Thursday the 29th of November. After the video there will be a question and answer session and discussion with members from the Revolutionary Anti Imperialist Movement- Denver.

Fourth Of July Agit Campaign

Forth of July Agit Campaign

As amerikkkans prepare to celebrate their “freedom” to slaughter people the world over and “liberty“ to steal their land, labor and resources, RAIM-Denver will be distributing tons of agitation and literature throughout the Denver metro area.

If you would like to help in our efforts, print and our agitation and short readings and take them to record stores, stick them in newspaper racks, put them on buses and lightrails, take them to parties and concerts, place them near military recruitment centers, or wherever else you can think of.

Don’t just sit on your ass while these cracker nationalists celebrate their oppressor nation, history and culture! This year, represent the oppressed by distributing RAIM-Denver agit and do your part to crash pigmerikkka’s party.

Parasitism: The Economics of Imperialism

Amerika’s economy is like a giant mall. The majority of “workers,” instead of actually producing things, have jobs distributing things. This includes tasks like moving things around, repackaging them, designing advertising campaigns, standing behind cash registers, etc. Inevitably, you have the people whose jobs are to merely account for all these financial and labor transactions, an army of private security guards [and police] and a few people who clean up the mess at the end of the day. This is essentially what Amerika’s service-based economy looks like.

Though Amerikans are engaged in almost exclusively nonproductive busywork, they earn massively inflated wages. While most workers of the world labor for 50 or 60 hours a week under oppressive conditions for about 3 dollars a day, the median yearly income for a full-time Amerikan “worker” over 25 years was $39,336 in 2005. (1) An adult “working” Amerikan pulls in 30 times the world’s median wage. Plus, Amerikans often “work” less, enjoy paid vacations, shorter hours and better “working” conditions. The result is that most Amerikans have a substantial amount of time and money to use as they please.

With the extra money from their inflated wages, Amerikans consume in the most frivolous ways. More importantly, in doing so, they return to the giant shopping mall that is their economy. From amerika’s daily shopping spree, a profit for the system is insured and the need for all the security guards, sales people and cooks is fulfilled.

But you can’t have an economy based only on selling things. Commodities don’t just magically appear. People need to make them. In the same vein, you can’t have system where everyone is gaining because you need a source for the profit. Behind every overpaid, unproductive Amerikan “worker” there is a mass of productive workers who earn subsistence and sub-subsistence wages. It is from the exploited labor of the Third World that Amerika is able to float this parasitic system. Exploitation of the Third World is what makes possible the inflated wages of the amerikan labor aristocracy.

Amerikan imperialism takes the products created by the exploited labor of the Third World and passes it off to Amerika’s aristocratic “workers.” From here, amerikan “workers” are overpaid to basically tinker around with the products before they are sold. In turn, Amerikan “workers” use their inflated wages to buy these products thus making possible the final realization of profit for the overall system. In this manner, Amerika uses global exploitation to keep its domestic mall economy afloat and enable its existence as an entire nation of parasites.

More Israeli Aggression (what a suprise)

Unless you’ve been under a rock (or in the self absorbed money-hole called amerikkka) for the last few days, you’ve probably heard that Hamas has taken control of the Gaza Strip.

In a perfect world, Fatah and Hamas would be able to cooperate in defending the interests of the Palestinian people. To often though, the oppressor is able to round up traitors and fools to do its dirty work. This is evident in Fatah and especially Abbas, who is more or less the house nigger of the West Bank. An apologist for iSSraeli and ameriKKKan aggression, Abbas has done nothing but put a cap on the justified anger of the Palestinian people. We can only hope that the rank-and-file of Fatah can dump its comprador leaders and enter into a united struggle for the national liberation of Palestine.

Today’s Blurb

Any conception of “socialist revolution” simply in terms of the working people of the United States, failing to recognize the full scope of interests of the most oppressed peoples of the world, is a conception of a fight for a particular privileged interest, and is a very dangerous ideology.
