Introduction post 

Hi all, I've been on the fediverse on and off for about 2 or 3 years but I've never done an intro post. Since I'm on now I figure that I should do one now.

I'm a socialist living in Seattle with my partner, @momjeans and our two pets.

I'm a member of the IWW and DSA. If you're a member of either of those feel free to follow me, I'd love to chat about socialism & labor

Also I am a big ol PokΓ©mon nerd so I will probably be PokΓ©mon Posting a lot

Giovanni's obsession with mew, the so called "first PokΓ©mon" and creating a superior stronger version of it mirrors fascist eugenics pseudoscience

ranting about team rocket, fascism 

β€’To Unite All People Within Our Nation
this sounds inclusive, but it's another dogwhistle. how do members of team rocket define "their nation"? many neonazi groups consider Jewish people to be of a different nationality and use this as a basis for their bigotry.
β€’To Denounce the Evils of Truth and Love
now it's getting clearer what they're about
the rest of it's sci fi goo gaa

ranting about team rocket, fascism 

Team Rocket in the PokΓ©mon games is coded as a mafia type organization (organized crime, kidnapping, legit business serving as a front, led by a menacing Italian guy) but they have many more traits in common with a white nationalist cult. let's look at their motto:
β€’To Protect the World from Devastation
sounds kind enough, no rational person would advocate FOR World Devastation. this is a dogwhistle. the average person wouldn't know what they mean, but they do.

3. if somehow we beat trump, invoke the 25th amendment on day 1

4. president bernie

damn I figured it out. the Red Guard is the Salvation Army of communism

*Please Boost* covid-19 action options for service workers: 

If you're working in a place with an active outbreak of the coronavirus, are in a customer facing role, and are concerned about getting sick or getting others sick while your boss or company refuses to close and / or refuses to support sick workers through sick pay or in other ways consider a sick-in.

Joe Hill called the Salvation Army the "Starvation Army" and that is an S tier wobbly dad joke that I 100% will be using this holiday season
