After Elon Musk took over Twitter and quickly moved to align with the far-Right by removing anarchist and antifascist accounts, we wanted to bring back this column and use it as a vehicle to promote antifascist theory, action, and research.

With it, we are seeing new far-Right, neo-Nazi, neo-fascist, and white supremacist groups emerge.Some of these groups seem to be splits from Patriot Front, a neo-Nazi formation…

DeSantis’s “War on Woke” Is As Troubling As We Feared by Jay Kuo (The Status Kuo)

In the spirit of taking a closer look at the new and frankly increasingly disturbing crop of GOP leaders, let’s head down to the political swamplands of Florida to examine the education and culture wars recently ignited by Gov. Ron DeSantis. These provide a preview of what we might expect to hear more regularly as DeSantis weighs a primary challenge to reigning MAGA king Donald Trump.

DeSantis was back in the news on Wednesday with an unusual direct challenge to the College Board. As the National Review breathlessly reported, on January 12 the DeSantis administration, through its Department of Education’s “Office of Articulation,” blocked approval for an AP African American Studies (APAAS) curriculum in the state, claiming to the College Board…

But it’s not uncommon for police departments to disseminate information about the drug use of someone who was killed after interacting with cops.
