reminder that the three arrows symbol (↙️↙️↙️) is explicitly anticommunist

the arrows represent

1. anti monarchist
2. anti fascist
3. anti communist

· · Cranial Implant · 3 · 23 · 23

the symbol was popularized by the social democratic party of Germany in the early 30s,

you know, the same social democratic party that sided with fascists to crush socialists

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

@kiosk @SeanAloysiusOBrien I read this as screw pile driver I-
The internet has ruined my brain

@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

@kiosk @SeanAloysiusOBrien They truly do suck so much and I can't wait for them to end themselves


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

@SeanAloysiusOBrien @kiosk the one thing I appreciate about American socdems is that they are at least nominally on the right position on a lot of social issues

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

@kiosk @SeanAloysiusOBrien oh I know but they at least pretend to be so, or I guess idk if they stopped after leaving the Socialist International lol

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet @SeanAloysiusOBrien theyre basically the same as the american democrats, they say theyre progressive and then never actually stand up for any ideals

@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
