Hello Comrades, I just felt like some light discussion.
Recently, you may have heard about the Comrades of mine who were attacked by Anarchists at a bookfair. That, combine with the current historical pattern of Communist oppression and the slow collapse of US Imperialism has got me feeling really paranoid.
I just wondered if people related. I refuse to hide, I proudly display a PCUSA and Soviet Flags in my window, I usually wear my PCUSA. I'm sort of asking for it, feeling like I'm getting stares wherever I go. If someone gets offended by it it is their problem, but part of me just wants to go stealth, but doing so would be against my principles. Part of my job is being visibly a Communist and being seen as a friendly and positive influence in my community.
But my friends getting attacked by Anarchists, well, it's definitely enough to make you think...
I carry mace, but that wouldn't do much against a group of attackers, or god forbid the police.
You know what they say, "just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you".
