So I keep hearing about this mythical “reasonable and afraid” crowd who we can establish reasonable conversations with.

Let’s see:

  • I see how the Korean media covers their activities and their positions, and I want to throw up. It’s disgusting.
  • I go to their website, and I want to puke. It’s worse in online spaces.
  • Same with their flyers.

Look, if we were leading a movement and a sympathetic media outlet was posting racist shit, we would condemn it and talk with the business in question so they would immediately stop the hate speech. If the media outlet refuses to collaborate, we would publicly announce that we do not consider them our allies.

Have the antis done that? If so what hopes do we have of establishing reasonable conversations with these people?
