I would like to start on a somewhat unrelated note: I fucking hate Tom Hanks. It’s not just that he cultivates a saccharin liberal image, or that he’s known predominantly for playing crusty old men in highly acclaimed amerikan period-pieces that amount to little more than the old CNN opera (stay tuned for his inevitable […]

The latest casualty in the war between the u$ navy and the concept of competence, the u$ guided missile destroyer USS Benfold sustained light damage yesterday after colliding with a Japanese commercial tug boat that lost propulsion and T-boned the nearly 2 billion dollar danger-canoe. Sadly, no one was hurt. Although Benfold got away with […]

[This post will update periodically, check back for latest developments and commentary from Anti-Imperialism] 4:12am: President Mugabe is apparently under house arrest, and sacked former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa is back in the country from self-imposed exile. Reuters claims to have leaked intelligence documents stating that Mnangagwa wishes to invite the white farmers and business owners […]

Today we celebrate the centennial of the Great October Socialist Revolution, the watershed of the subsequent era of communist power that really began in 1917, invigorated once more by the second world war, reached new heights in 1949 and 59, and petered out long before the millennium with the fall of the decrepit Soviet Union, […]

Former FBI Director and resident Russkie hunter, Robert Mueller, has dropped former Trump campaign manager Manafort through the little door and, although his neck has yet to pop, it is clear that many very important players see prefigured in this massacre their own undoing. Now, whether it is the laughable accusation of collusion, or the […]

amerikans cannot escape the opioid epidemic—whether wealthy white families from Maine to the Midwest, or the gas station employee who stumbles on an overdose in the bathroom every other week. It is the most talked-about crisis since Uncle Sam, prince-elector of misery, elevated Freeway Rick to the imperial seat of the crack game; and it […]

In 1915 a plan was circulated to begin an uprising in February of that year to throw off white rule. Ambitious, internationalist and bursting with the hopes of a submerged nation, the manifesto called for retaking the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and California, to proclaim them a separate Chican@ republic, to restore […]

Trump has once again coaxed “civically conscious” liberals into putting on a passion play of imperialist propaganda, to, in effect, “show Trump how imperialism is really done.” Every time Trump produces one of these sideshows (you can practically set your watch by these types of distractions from his flailing administration) the imperial left responds with […]

If there’s a God, he waited too goddamn long. u.$. eques, and Grand Ole Man of the carpet bombing, John McCain, has been diagnosed with (hopefully terminal) cancer. The Butcher of Belgrade, the Crown Prince of Kabul, the Benefactor of Baghdad, the plutocratic/plutonium pencil-pusher extraordinaire, who has for decades appropriated monies for, cheered at, and […]

The frenchman is a strange creature. What can we say about it with any certainty? Some things we know for sure: It is highly xenophobic, belligerent, prone to attack without provocation, and exhibits very little awareness of irony, as evinced, for instance, by past anti-gay protests undertaken by strapping, shirtless young men. Having established at […]

[Torkil Lauesen is a long time anti-imperialist organizer and activist, former member of the Danish Communist Working Circle [KAK] and later Manifest-Communist Working Group [MKA], and author of Det Globale Perspektiv (the Global Perspective), awaiting publication in English. The story of the MKA and its members’, including Lauesen’s, daring acts of illegal practice for the […]

[The following is an attempt by your friends here at Anti-Imperialism to apply to the u.$. the same journalistic standards which it reserves for its enemies. Sadly, the result is much more cogent and only slightly satirical.] Late Wednesday night, the u.$. regime tested its anti-ICBM systems over an outpost on one of their isolated […]

In the wake of the Daesh-claimed attack in Tehran that left 17 innocents dead, the Trump creature let fly an uncharacteristic press statement on the attacks (uncharacteristic in that somebody wrote it for him, and it wasn’t a tweet), the sheer irony of which cannot be conveyed in words, but we’ll try. Concerning Iran, the […]

[With the recent renewed interest in Settlers, as well as the release from u.$. interment of the great Oscar López Rivera, we thought it might be prudent to provide our readers with a choice tidbit from the book in question. As the revisionists and the imperial left, devoid of real solidarity, decry the treatment of […]

“Superficial and reactionary measures, especially when pursued through law, will have no other outcome but to clear the way for future crises by intensifying existing polarizations… These behaviors are unjust and we all know that pursuing injustice has the unwanted characteristic of reversibility.” —Ayatollah Khamenei, in his second letter to the western youth following the […]

by Nemequene Tundama [The following piece was originally hosted by TeleSur, and is republished here with the permission of the author.] When you think of Western capitalism and imperialism, what usually comes to mind are aggressive superpowers such as the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany and so forth. Northern European nations such as Norway, Denmark, […]

[What follows is excerpted from WEB Du Bois’ ‘Marxism and the Negro Problem’, published in The Crisis, 1933, and elucidates Du Bois’ thought regarding the vicious tactics of the aristocracy of labor among the whites, and his rejection of false consciousness as a throwaway excuse for what is actually the interest of the settler working classes, who […]

As ECOWAS troops entered the Gambia yesterday to depose long-time “strongman” Yahya Jammeh and install the ostensibly “democratically elected” commonwealth-loyal real-estate mogul Adama Barrow[1] one could be forgiven for seeing in this crisis the specter of the 2011 Ivorian crisis, wherein French and comprador troops entered Côte d’Ivoire to depose “strongman” Laurent Gbagbo and install […]

“It is a book about imperialism and anti-imperialism… it is a book written by an activist for activists.” – Torkil Lauesen, author. Indiegogo link here <<<< What better way to kick off our return here at Anti-Imperialism than to highlight a book seemingly tailor-made for our readership. Regular readers will be familiar with Torkil Lauesen and […]
