The Antifada is more than a podcast. It’s a specter haunting the globe. It is the synthesis of the two most frightening things for the cheerleaders of this reactionary hell world, one ravaged by the unbounded savagery of capital and it’s states: antifa super-soldiers and intifada; bash the fash and a global uprising.

title: Episode Seventeen - The Working Class Goes to Hell w Matt Christman & Virgil
description: "Join the Antifada community to hear more spicy takes from this conversation
(dropping later this week)!\n\nIn this very
special Antifada offering, Andy, Jamie and Sean are joined by your favorite sons:
Matt Christman and Virgil Texas of Chapo Trap House. Gang begins by addressing the
central questions of our hyper-digital age: what if God friended you on Facebook?
Is QAnon just a benign hobby for bored Boomers? And, holy shit, what if GOD WAS
QANON? \n\nMatt, Virgil and Jamie reveal - for the very first time - their respective
political tendencies. Everyone marvels at how high-T Jeb(!) managed to lose the
primary despite the PR coup of offering a poorly branded guaca bowle. \n\nCrew get
knee-deep into Paul Schrader's 1978 classic \"Blue Collar\" starring Richard Pryor,
Yaphet Kotto and Harvey Keitel's genitalia. How does this movie about struggling
union autoworkers help us understand the 70s as more than just bad hair and bell
bottoms? (C.f. Jefferson Cowie's \"Stayin' Alive\" and the upcoming \"Chapo Guide
to Revolution: A Manifesto Against Logic, Facts and Reason\") \n\nHow did the \"Golden
Age\" of US capitalism break down? How the hell did we end up in neoliberal hellworld
when the 70s saw the most massive wildcat strike wave since the 30s? Why can't we
return to decadent late social-democracy complete with coke benders, shag carpets
to bang across, crushed velvet noodie posters and modernist chairs made to look
like cocks'n'balls? Ugh. \n\nAfter the depressing grind of Blue Collar, Matt suggests
we lighten the mood with \"Gung Ho\" (1986) starring Michael Keaton. What's more
uplifting after watching a film about declining racial solidarity among the US working
class than one that uses stereotypes about the Japanese for cheap yuks? What's more
laughable than watching a town full of autoworker rubes look to a washed up high
school jock to solve their employment crisis? \n\nIn a startling twist, the entire
crew turns on the American working class as the indolent, entitled chuds they are:
you will all wear Ribbons of Shame in the highly disciplined and sadistic Japanese-dominated
future! \n\nLuckily, this week's viral wildcat video by a Hero of Socialist Labor
saves us from going full MAGA. Spoiler: in the end our various tendencies are synthesized
into Antoine Dangerfield Thought. \n\nBecome a patron today to access more content

description: "Help support the show, access premium content, and join the Antifada

The Antifada's HARD LAUNCH episode, Jamie and Sean speak with socialist power couple
Doug Henwood and Liza Featherstone about aggression in Syria, the governor's race
in New York, and liberal derangement syndrome. \nLiza does an on-air version of
her socialist-feminist advice column in The Nation, \"Asking for a Friend.\" Jamie
almost sells out, but mistakes ice cream for soap so w/e. \nSean reminds us that
leftists don't make heroes of i-banking cops like James Comey. \nDoug and Liza talk
about how they met and their philosophy on makin' red diaper bbs. Jamie and Liza
admit they're only in it for the Bernie bro boyfriends.\n\nCheck out Doug Henwood

description: "Help support the show, access premium content, and join the Antifada
community for as little as $2 a month at\n\n\nIn
part one of a monster episode, we sit down with Justin Charles of North Brooklyn
DSA and the AfroSocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus. \nSean is scarred by
a perilous bus journey. \nRachel Maddow and the libs freak out about potential peace
(oh no!) on the Korean Peninsula. \nDemocrats 'Russia Russia Russia' themselves
into becoming the NatSec party. Who cares if 81% of South Koreans want an end to
the war? (Not the lamestream media!) \nSuper deep dive: where does 'identity politics'
come from? Does the left foster conflict between racial groups as per weeping moron
Jordan Peterson, or is 'race' a historically constructed category with no basis
in biology? \nJamie explains the Marxist concept of 'real abstraction'. \nJustin
on how the term 'identity politics' was created by the black, lesbian Marxists of
the Combahee River Collective in 1977. \nThe gang then traces — with help from Adolph
Reed and the Fields sisters — how this radical conception was watered down into
neoliberal diversity capitalism. How does the left avoid 'bad' idpol? \nWhat structures
should socialist organizations put in place to ensure that racialized and gendered
domination is not reproduced within our movement? Is the AfroSocialist and Socialists
of Color Caucus a bourgeois radlib beachhead destined to undermine the Democratic
Socialists of America? (Spoiler alert: nah.) \n\nPart two will further the conversation
by addressing critiques of the caucus before it degenerates into dragging on Elon
Musk's utopian anarchist turn. Become a patron starting at just $2/month at

you for your support!)\n\nThe boys are back! This History Is A Weapon is so massive
(and inebriated) that we had to break it into two parts. \n\nIn this installment,
Matt and Sean shoot a little shit about the radical geography of Europe before we
plunge into the pool of disco and despair that was the 1970s: how the global crisis
upended the 'Golden Age' of American capitalism, how Richard Nixon rode a wave of
aggrievement to become the voice of a 'silent majority' in backlash, and how the
uneasy alliance between organized labor and the Democratic Party began to fracture
as stagflation undermined the post-war compromise.\n\nPart II, another goddamn hour-and-a-half
of historical goodness, will drop later this week to complete the story of how this
thing called neoliberalism came to dominance, how it, too, is now crumbling, and
how we might dialectically overcome the limitations of working class self-organization
evident in previous cycles of struggle."

Once more into the breach! Matt Christman of Chapo Trap House joins Sean KB again to make history all the more weapony. In this episode, we discuss the 'controversial' French 'novel' that is 'just asking questions' about the Migrant Invasion and the Great Replacement
How did a 1970s book by some grenouille asshole named Jean Raspail become a prophetic lodestar for an ascendant white nationalist movement? How does a historical materialist analysis help us understand why dickheads like Steve Bannon and Marine Le Pen are lauding this novel 50 years later? Ultimately, we ask wtf is up with French politics/development that they could vomit up filth so enduring as to still be 'relevant' in 2019?

title: 'Ep 51: The Housing Monster w/ Samuel Stein'
description: |-
Samuel Stein, author of 'Capital City: Gentrification and the Real Estate State' from Verso Books, comes on the pod to explain why neoliberalism will have us all living in pods if we don't do something about the global housing crisis.
We discuss the rise of the FIRE sector. We demystify the concept of gentrification. We isolate the fundamental contradictions of housing as a commodity. We unpack the ways in which even the most well-meaning progressive politicians and planners are utterly constrained by the system itself.
And, as is our want, we take a profound plunge into how workers have organized for the right to housing in the past and how we might ultimately fight to slay the housing monster.
