From Destroy Everything
The “anarchist scene” is currently in an uproar. If people aren’t upset about Michael Schmidt’s racist remarks and possible “infiltration”, they are gossiping about the recent feud between Aragorn and Bob Black. Anarchism has, in the span of a few weeks, been reduced to the petty gossip of tabloids. Those at the head of these events are doing nothing but spectacularizing the events. In the Michael Schmidt case, AK Press decided to prematurely announce things, then wait until they could secure a more mainstream outlet to publish on. In the other case, we have seen a barrage of social media, along with a eulogy for Mr. Black, in a written/semi-physical war which could just continue ad nauseum. Why do we care about these things, of which the majority of us have no direct involvement? Why has reality entertainment reared its ugly head in anarchism?
The October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality has recently called for a march and rally at 5pm at Westlake on October 22nd. This has been a tradition around the country since 1996, and differs year very little from year to year. The Coalition itself is a splinter of the Revolutionary Communist Party(RCP) and maintains both authoritarian and statist ideas in terms of it's campaigns. In the past Anarchists in cities throughout the US have held their own separate marches or tried to have a presence inside these marches on October 22nd to counter the dominant RCP narrative.

For those of you that haven't heard I threw an event with Bob Black at our local infoshop on August 7th 2015. At this event local activist Morgan Le Fay came to protest Bob for the 1995 Hogshire affair and ended up punching him a few times (3) in the face. A month later Bob announced on Facebook that I was both a traitor and enemy. He proceeded to blow my pseudonym (incorrectly) as an act of vengeance.
