In this special crossover of Antifada, Proletkult, History is a Weapon, and Parallax Views we take a dive into the "stay behind operations" after World War II designed to protect Western Europe from leftist victory at any cost--including coups, assassinations, and false flag terror plots. Conspiracy theory? Nope! PARAPOLITICS.

Friend of the show Molly Crabapple ([@mollycrabapple](https://twitter.com/mollycrabapple)) joins us to talk about getting arrested with a bunch of her fellow Jews at last week's Amazon/ICE protest, the Punisher logo, and the importance of antifascism. She then gives us an overview of the protests in Puerto Rico that exploded when now-former governor Ricardo Rosselló's ghoulish frat boy chat logs were leaked to the press. Asambleas! Flags! The nationalism of the colonial subject! Ricky Martin!

Simone discusses her viral "praxis" video. More irony talk, anti-intellectualism on the left, and the pitfalls of "normie socialism." We conduct a worker's inquiry into Simone's nanny job and her experience with Gen-Z, a group of kind and rational humans we are definitely not afraid of being turned into pelts by. Andy spills the beans about his online chess habit.

In the aftermath of Sophie's brutal Twitter ratioing (The Night of the Dirty Legs), Andy decided we should revisit the classic essay "Washing... or Brainwashing" from Crimethinc's in/famous 2000 book Days of War, Nights of Love. We discover that nobles are savage, washing your landlords' blood off your shirt is bourgeois and that deodorant is capitalism negging you.
Mostly we are just sober and dumb and talking about eating human shit.

Sophie Weiner, night-editor of Splinter News and displaced poster, was back in NYC for a bit. We got her in studio to talk about politics in Australia and other oddities... for example, something good happened in Albany for once! We were also gifted with another lovely morsel of #content from media power couple Bari & Bill Weiss-Maher.
Mostly we had a fun discussion about electronic dance music (kids these days call it 'the raving') and how socialists can organize within the scene while inspiring our politics with the libratory potentials of it. All of this, of course, is anticipation of this week's publication of Sophie and Zoe Beery's new anti-capitalist dance music zine... PLURletariat. Enjoy!
