reminder that the three arrows symbol (↙️↙️↙️) is explicitly anticommunist
the arrows represent
1. anti monarchist
2. anti fascist
3. anti communist
ie when people joke about socdems murdering Rosa Luxemburg, these are the specific socdems who murdered Rosa Luxemburg
some shitheads will try and claim "oh it's not anti communist the symbol is only against the evil "authoritarian" communism"
first of all that's a nonsense distinction
second of all ok but there's a real history and the SPD materially opposed communists who has nothing to do with the "evils" of Stalin
@SeanAloysiusOBrien Id just like to add that the same SPD recently voted unanimously against reforming the TSG, the law making trans peoples lives hell right now
yeah that same party still exists and is still awful but I'm not as knowledgeable about them today so I didn't want to talk too authoritatively
I just look at euro socdems and go, what's the entire point of your left party if you're not anti imperialist, not anti all forms of oppression, and not pro worker lol
@SeanAloysiusOBrien it was explicitly directed against the KPD who was cooperating with the nazi party and spreading anti-semitic propaganda back then.
It's not like the SPD and the Iron Front were any better themselves though
