More Virtual Tributes

Post from a United Electrical Workers top:

A couple of my favorite Omar memories.
I was assigned to share a hotel room with him in Chicago. I walked in to the room and he was already there. No "hi" or "how are ya", his first words to me were "I just took a huge dump, you might want to find a different bathroom to use this week."
And he once said to me that our Union's fight for social justice and worker solidarity and all was "nice", but "I do this job because I like to f!+$ with the boss."

Post from another UE organizer

Once Omar and I were sharing a hotel room for an organizing retreat. I was cold, so I got under the covers, and turned on the TV. Star Wars was on. He walked into the room, looked at me and said "Are you jacking off to Star Wars? You're one sick f%!# man!"

And a picture

Omar's entry on the anti-labor page Union Facts

Rightists at Free Republic complaining about a leaflet he made for UMass Amherst student-workers with racist foreign-baiting comments (he was from Murfreesboro, Tennessee)

EDIT: Should have known, incorrigible internet troll that he was, that Omar found this page and commented on it:

"To the genius conspiracy theorists making the unfounded accusations against me-- I should inform you of two things: 1. I am not a privileged international student. I was not sent here by a foreign government. It is not true that 50% of college students are foreigners from terrorist nations. How did you come up with such a silly statistic anyway? I'm an American citizen-- born and raised. My family and I have worked very hard for everything we have, which isn't much, but we're proud of it anyway. I was a union member long before I came to UMass. I don't expect all of you to understand what being a union member means or why people join unions, but I would expect you not be so ridiculous as to make all union members out to be the antichrist. 2. Not all people with Arab and Muslim names are terrorists. I wouls strongly suggest if I ever have the displeasure of meeting either one of you guys that you have the sense not to try talking that ignorant, racist trash to my face. To the other people who frequent this website-- Please keep an open mind and don't take partisan and sometimes racist ravings and conspiracy theory at face value. Check the facts first. Sincerely, Omar el-Malah UAW Local 2322"

And for this one I had to dig deep. Couldn't find the article I remembered, but found it as text on some anti-fascist archives page. Alas, the accompanying picture of Comrade Omar, bloody but unbowed, has disappeared down the memory hole.

White supremacist speaks in Wallingford, many protest
10 Mar 01


Protesters opposed to Matt Hale, the leader of the World Church of the
Creator, marched to the rear of the Wallingford Public Library a little
after 1 p.m. Saturday.

The tension mounted quickly as Hale's supporters met them face to face.
With riot police standing by, they exchanged words first, and then the
physical confrontation.

Several members on both sides of the protest broke out in a fist fight.

The protesters ripped and burned the rebel colors, and then stormed the
library in an effort to shut the meeting down.

Police used pepper gas to hold the protesters back.

"They sprayed us with pepper spray or mace, I'm not sure. It's all in my
eyes and my mouth and it burns," says Leah Walsh, Roxbury.

"I got sprayed a little bit, and then in the ensuing rush on the way back, came back, just got slammed to the pavement," says Omar El-Malah, Boston, MA.

Hale spoke as scheduled in the library's crowded Community Room.

"The evidence shows that we are not all created equal. The idea of racial equality is the most absurd idea in the history of this world," says Matt Hale.

But Hale could not escape the hecklers. Police arrested one person in the library, and there were more clashes upon exit.

"Does it bring you pleasure to hurt people like this? We have people in
pain, not enough water, no medical help here. This is a public building.
It is our right to be here. And it is not your right to physically impose your violence and your territorial dictatorship on us," says one protester.

The police were out in force during the day, but it quieted down as soon as Hale was out of the area.

Hale, who is from East Peoria, Illinois, promised to return to Connecticut.

That's leaving aside the million or so articles in little local newspapers from Maryland to Maine about contracts he helped negotiate and strikes he helped organize.

Most of the outraged supporter came around long before November. I suspect the same will be true of Bernie Bros. Most of his supporters already have.

Oh they will, unfortunately. Bernie, sheepdog that he is, has pledged every step of the way that he would endorse the Democratic Party candidate, and the highest estimation of Bernie or Bust!ers among his supporters that I ever saw was 30%.

Got word from the party tops today that the Jill Stein campaign asked us to help get her on the ballot, so it looks like I'm going to spend the next month petitioning the electorate of New Hampshire on her behalf. Normally, my ultraleft instincts would make me gag at collecting signatures for a petty-bourgeois party like the Greens, but a) it will give us a chance to reconnect with the Occupy kids-turned-Bernie campaigners we know who are more disgusted with the Democrats than they've ever been; and b) they just adopted an explicitly anti-capitalist plank into their program.

Not that I expect much to come of it, but it'll give us something to do over the summer.

Speaking of Britishiznoid chauvinism, funny photo of a newspaper blurb making the FB rounds:

"A scene of modern Britain played out on a rail replacement bus serivce in Newport yesterday. A woman in a niqab was chatting to her son in another language. After five minutes, a man suddenly snapped: 'If you're in the UK, you should speak English.' At this, another passenger turned round and explained: 'We're in Wales. And she's speaking Welsh.'"

Word I'd use is "concession."

Probably a rather meaningless one. As I understand it, and I may not, the platform isn't binding on any candidate running under the Democratic Party banner, including the presidential candidate.

But it suggests that Bernie and his (mostly Democratic Party lifer) staffers have a better understanding of how to get their voices heard by the party tops than some others.

Interesting little thumbnail that I'd never heard:

A Note from Mike Davis about the Second Amendment

Which, being quite short, I'll copy and paste:

FIVE WEEKS BEFORE the final ratification of the Bill of Rights in December 1791, the regular Army of the United States of America, under the command of Revolutionary War hero Arthur St. Clair, was utterly destroyed at the Battle of the Wabash by an alliance of Western Indians led by the great war chiefs Little Turtle and Blue Jacket. It was a worse disaster than the Little Big Horn. Only 45 members of St. Clair’s 1300-person expedition which included regulars, militia, and camp followers survived the ambush unscathed.

This is the real historical context in which the meaning of the Second Amendment must be interpreted: the national army had been annihilated, the First Nations had reclaimed the Ohio Valley, and the British were emboldened to retain the Western forts (Michilmakinac and Detroit) that they had agreed to surrender in the treaty of 1787. A “well-regulated militia” of armed people was the only thing standing between George Washington and the return of King George III. Or, between white people and successful rebellions of slaves and Native Americans.

Odd, to say the least, that the left-liberal media has so neglected this background, particularly since it speaks to “original intent,” that fetish of Scalia and much of his party. More importantly, why haven’t we taken advantage of the GOP’s Salafist interpretation of the Constitution to revive the classical (Charles) Beardsian critique of this slaveowners’ relic? The alternative tradition in American history, embraced by Jefferson, Lincoln, and Wilson, has always asserted the priority of the Declaration of Independence as the nation’s foundational document and natural law.


Can't say I ever recall reading about the Battle of the Wabash.

Condolences to everyone else with ailing or deceased pets.

Trump came up to NH yesterday, but in the wake of the Orlando massacre he cancelled two of his three appearances, including the one where we were going to have a protest. :(

Instead we went to a rather ho-hum meeting of the Nashua Labor Coalition. Most interesting part was when the lifelong Democratic Party hack and candidate for state rep, who had been feeling the bern, started passing out petitions to get Jill Stein on the NH ballot. Might be time to check back in with the local Bernie crowd.

I won't do it this week, though, because [DJdD]I am going to Brooklyn where I will most likely have a lot of sex and then break up with La Principessa. Actually, La Principessa maintains that we've never gotten back together from last time we broke up, but she wants me to come down and have lots of sex with her anyway.

Speaking of which, I'd also tell you about how Mr. Comrade and the Nigerian Princess broke up, but at the last Capital reader's circle I got drunk and let slip about this thread and that, I, too, am a bit of a leftist internet celebrity (I was bragging) and apparently, now, she lurks in here, so I won't.

I will say, however, that no condolences are necessary because they still sleep in the same bed even if they go out to bars and encourage each other to try to pick up other people, fail at it because everybody in the bar assumes they're together, and then go home and do it.

Ah, love.[/DJdD]

That sounds familiar. Mardi was also pretty dumb. He also never mastered the, I would imagine, pretty basic skill of retracting his claws and would get stuck to everything.

[Should be in Good Books thread]

I'm on vacation for the next two weeks so today I fished Elvis, Jesus and Coca-Cola by Kinky Friedman out of the backseat of the Doodlemobile and finished it. If anyone has ever read it, or, it looks like, any of the previous books featuring the protagonist, also named Kinky Friedman, they might recall that he spends a lot of time talking to his cat.

In an afterword, the author writes an eulogy to the real-life inspiration for the detective's cat, Cuddles, who died on January 4, 1993.

In it, he writes: "They say when you die and go to heaven all the dogs and cats you've ever had in your life come running to meet you."

Mardi never ran. He would walk fast, especially if there was food at the end of the walk, but he never ran.

Mardi was the fattest, laziest cat I've ever met. He was so fat, half of the time he was in the litter box he'd still end up pooping on the floor and he was so lazy that he would often lay down with his head in the food bowl to eat.

Well, CAJE seems to be dying. Unprecedented burst of identity politics by three people who haven't done much in three months complaining that, among other things, our film series is run by "two white guys" and is not sinking roots in the community.

The Nigerian Princess, lemme tell you, wasn't particularly pleased to hear that she is a "white guy" and we pointed out that while they were off doing nothing CAJE-related (you wanna complain about us not sinking links in the local community while you're running off to Albany, NY and lily-white West Roxbury in Boston?) we were running all around New Hampshire trying to make the Jeffrey Pendleton case a bigger thing. Didn't get around to mentioning that while we were doing that, they let the Perez shooting in Lowell go unprotested even though they repeatedly said they would contact the family after Mr. Comrade offered to.

Privilege theorists, heal thyself.

Meanwhile, second Capital reader's circle went well. Read section three of Chapter One. At this rate we should be done sometime in 2020.

The Return of Comrade Omar and His Anti-D&D Ways

Comrade Omar moved back to Philadelphia under a cloud of ill will and terrible behavior. My last text to him, as I recall, read "F&%~ you!" and his satisfied reply was "Have a good night."

That was months and months ago and apparently he is feeling guilty, or, more likely, enough time has passed, and he started getting back in touch. He didn't apologize or nothing, but I would log onto Facebook and discover that he had tagged me in a site for nominating people to attend a North Korean prison camp, or sending me screenshots of his anti-D&D conversations, or putting memes on my page about the release from jail of his favorite rapper, Gucci Mane.

Anyway, he got involved in an anti-D&D conversation with the Nigerian Princess, Mr. Comrade and Lebanese-American Woman Who Is Always Inebriated that I thought was amusing enough to post here.

Starts when Mr. Comrade links the following article from The Washington Post and tags the Nigerian Princess and I:

An illustrated guide to why grown-ups are playing Dungeons & Dragons again


The Nigerian Princess: I love playing D&D and I'm not ashamed to say it. What's not to love. We (I) get drunk and pretend I'm a badass Black wood elf with insane archery skills. #danddisbae #gladihavepeoppetoplayitwithfinally

Lebanese-American Woman: Is there shame in playing?? I guess it depends on your DM ;)

NP: Yes DM and other more conservative players

Comrade Omar: Yes, there is much shame in it but sadly players themselves do not recognize it and admitting you have a problem is the first step in getting help.

LAW: Admittedly, I myself have little to no shame..

Mr. Comrade: Bwahahaha

NP: Omar with your hating ass.the only problem I have is that I don't get to play it regularly enough

CO: I'm fighting the good fight here, a lone voice of reason in the wilderness. You are in my thoughts and prayers that you may someday see the light. [Mr. Comrade] too but less so as I suspect he may have corrupted you and introduced you to this sick world in which you are now seemingly trapped. Just remember there is a lifeline if you ever want to grab it and escape from the shameful mire of D&Ddom.

LAW: I don't know you Omar, so it would be bold of me to guess you were, say, a video game or comic book nerd who shames other nerds for their nerd thing..

MC: No. Omar thinks he's cool. Most of thr time i saw him when i was playing d&d somewhere he lived, he would be wearinf sunglasses indoors. He would be holding a drink. Listening to gucci mane, talking s@!! about d&d.

CO: Ur both wrong. I'm here to help society by fighting the iniquity of D&D. Stop stereotyping me, bigots.

MC: Omar? Whats your profile pic?

CO: An explicit endorsement of Guwop [Gucci Mane] for President...what's your point?

LAW: [Mr. Comrade], wearing shades indoors AND gucci mane? Now the whole visual reeks with this hyperbole...and I have betrayed my cool exterior by confessing I have no idea who gucci mane is, but for this man's profile pic.

CO: And track suits.
And matching hats and shoes.
And a union bureaucrat. Lol

LAW: You're killing me, clearly if he believes he is helping society by revealing inequities of d & d this costume is a ruse. Not an undercover? All this from me, aka, no dress sense

CO: Okay I like to dress sharp and the sunglasses are prescription so f*$+in sue me but we're really getting off topic here which is that D&D sucks

Later in thread:

MC: Im going to DM a game this summer 5th edition Ravenloft. It will be Very heavy on role playing, not so much on combat and rules. Just the way this adventure is, and i want that. Im sick of killing goblin tribes. I want real mystery and intrigue!

MC: And im going all out. Voices, costumes, music, lighting. Yeah. You will feel the gothic horror. Lol

CO: [Mr. Comrade], just remember there are people here ready to help you when you're ready to accept it. Unfortunately I think you have too many enablers in ur life :'(

Stole it for Facebook, comrade, thank you.

Pride and "Red, Black and Queer" were successes, especially the latter, with over a dozen attendees in a sweltering room listening to a septuagenarian gay communist give a slideshow presentation about organizing trade unions and hanging out with the Sandinistas.

I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get swarms of gay and trans kids who wanted to collect money for the phone workers, but me and Mr. Comrade compared notes and noticed that, of all the people we gave flyers to at the transgender rights thingy, we got a cis het Latino immigrant male to each event.

Activist Friends of Mine in the News, well, Counterpunch

So, a couple of months ago we met this couple, Alex and Alex. He is from El Salvador; she is f%%@ing gorgeous. We ran into each other a couple of times, they came to one of our events, etc., etc. Then, back on April 14th, we ran into her down in Boston at the $15 rally in front of the state house. She found out about our bus back to Lowell, hopped on, and we got to chatting.

Turns out, she works with something called the Chelsea Collaborative and their contingent was bringing attention to sexual harassment at some shop downtown (I forget which right now). It further turned out that she is second-generation celebrity labor leftie royalty. Her dad is Steve Early, who, among other things, was a CWA legend, an architect of the 1997 UPS strike, and the author of a book that was making the rounds in the last five years, Save Our Unions, a Counterpunch preview of which I remember cribbing heavily from for a branch meeting once.

Anyway, I friended her a while ago on Facebook, but I never got around to friending the other Alex until I ran into him at the transgender rights demo last night. When he accepted my request, I discovered that she is too modest to promote her own articles via Facebook, and she's written quite a few, but here's the latest:

For International Day Against Transphobia and Homophobia, the Lowell City Council entertained a motion to ask Massachusetts not to include transgendered people among the categories of people it is illegal to discriminate against.

CAJE helped turn out 50-75 peeps to voice their displeasure and the resolution was shut down. Then a resolution endorsing the Massachusetts decision to include etc., passed 8-to-1, including the councilwoman who seconded the original resolution.

Best of all, the Lowell City Council rounded up all the politically minded gay people in town so we can invite them to our Pride screening on Thursday or "Red, Black, and Queer" on Friday.

To stay on theme, I think I'll got a Chelsea Manning demo on Saturday.
