SLAYING THE DRAGON
How Fuckin' Big Is It?
The question posed to me by one of the honourable members :-) in Tyee was, basically, did I think there was any point to folks fighting on to have me "reinstated" back into Tyee?
Well, to what degree I actually have any influence over that and these folks, this was and is my final word on the subject of myself and Tyee:
Actually, like I think I may have said to you before, it is my opinion that a decision has been taken in the backroom of Tyee somewhere, that regardless, I am not to be allowed back into Tyee. In short, from the beginning, there was a different feel to this business, over previous attempts to bring me into line, and I felt as I feel, that Tyee is a done deal as far as I am concerned. (My own personal view is, based upon s firm foundation of anecdotal evidence :-) and my own experience with these "types" ,that in line with the early rumours about Tyee's financing and founding, Tyee is of greatest likelihood a creature of both "Labour" officialdom and the NDP "beholden" personnel therein-, a kind of front if you will.) and they have simply decided that I and my ideas are just too dangerous to be providing a free forum for. End of story. The anti-semitism business was always just a ruse, an attempt to create, out of the confusion of any critique of Israel, US Middle East policy, and the North American ADL lobby, a convenient peg on which to hang my banishment. (Where and how the "sexism" thing arises... Who knows? ...lest they have evidence with which to titillate you-, of which I am unaware. :-) And I won't rub their noses in it more than that. :-)
They were already in the weeds, lying in wait. :-)
In short, from the beginning of my "banishment", I was of the mind that there was nothing anyone can really do. And while I was willing to "toy" with them a tad, I am of the same mind. It is a done deal, and resistance is "likely" a pointless exercise.
They don't want my free-radical working class left, non-NDP/Big Labour tempered or disciplined views and attitude there, period. I've moved on already actually. I think you folks need to as well. Which does not mean I advocate you folks abandoning Tyee. Everybody has to make up their own mind about that kind of thing. (Though I do think that from here on, there is a great likelihood that you are all just going to be pissing into the wind. Tyee is, I think, destined to be a more NDP symp forum. And my banishment is part of the creation of that kind of a "friendlier ideological social-democrat environment". I need to be silenced in order for that to happen. It is a variation of the long established theme that the NDP can work with those to its "right", but those to its "left" are the greater enemy to be crushed. The same is the working model in the trade union movement actually. )
In any case brother/sister, y'all should individually do what ya think ya hafta do. I'm clearly outta there. 8-)
