Being anti-fascist is like being anti-setting-orphanages-on-fire, or anti-raping-livestock -- it should be the default position of decent people everywhere, and there shouldn't be enough people in the world opposed to those positions that decent people would need to announce that they support those positions.

There are not a lot of pro-arson and pro-bestiality people in the world, which is why decent people don't need to go out of their way to say they're anti-arson or anti-bestiality. But decent people feel it necessary to announce to the world that they're anti-fascist, and for some reason Republicans are opposed to the people who make that announcement.


What kind of people would announce that they're anti-antifa? Why would someone be proud to oppose the people who oppose fascism? The world wonders.

No one here wants to hear it but there is a shiat load of nazi punk stuff out there. Who would think a bunch of loud angry music would attract loud angry people. God I hate punk rock threads.

And for the record, I didn't 'sell out,' I just 'bought it.'

Our name and music is aimed at being a slave to day-to-day life and routine. It is a metaphorical use of the word...

Makes sense to me. I see people making references to being a "wage slave" all the time. You hear terms like "slave labor" being used to describe poor paying jobs. I don't think anyone is trying to equate that to the sufferings of actual slaves. Not everything is meant to be taken literally, sometimes it's just a figure of speech.

With that said, if they felt uncomfortable with their name and wanted to change it, then good for them.

I always thought punk just didn't care.  Be you and do who who want.
What isn't punk is changing your name due to align with popular opinion. 

Nah, punk, at least the successful bands, are just more corporate entities.  I remember when the Sex Pistols was just called the Pistols.  It's all marketing.

Real punk is thrashing in the dive bar downtown to a crowded scene that the mainstream doesn't even know exists.

Punk as a form of music is largely a joke to me, at least the culture is with people trying to outdo one another with how bizarre/hardcore they are and what not. I fully acknowledge I'm on the outside looking in here so I could very well be missing just a wee bit but hasn't punk always been accepting of others because they consider themselves different?

You stand by your statement that it should be cool for anyone to say the n word aloud, so long as it's in a non-racist context. Shocking. 

I suppose that's something you wouldn't mind testing in public, right? I mean, so long as you're saying it out loud in a non-racist context, nobody should mind, right?

And you guys who use the farkie "feature" are farking freaks.

Yep. Accountability for the dumb shiat you say probably does seem scary.

This is all true, but that shiat didn't come first and thus doesn't define what punk is.
