"Many forms of resistance to colonialism and empire are necessary and important, and this poster should not be interpreted as dissuading those forms of solidarity and resistance. Nor should anti-colonial consciousness and decolonization be thought of as mutually exclusive forms of action.  They often co-exist as “named” movements side by side. This poster seeks to point out that they may not be equivalent, and there are some critical differences between the two.
Recognizing many of the settlers engaging in this resistance identify as anarchists or dwell on an anti-colonial anarchist fringe, we ask you to consider how the pursuit of an anti-colonial  consciousness can still allow settler moves to innocence – diversions and distractions that relieve settlers of feelings of guilt while concealing the need to give up land, power, and privilege.
When anti-colonial action is complete, there is no guarantee that the settler has learned any more about who he is, or where he comes from. The inner work to heal the spirit from historic traumas that allow and perpetuate colonization may not be engaged.
Decolonization creates the possibility for the settler to become something more  -  to heal Indigenous identity, story, and spirit and deconstruct the very source of colonizing thought.”

Before people ask me, I do not consider the “Hail Hydra” meme to be anti-semitic, even though I understand why some of my fellow Jews might.

I really don’t though. Hydra has been kind of, pardon my pun, defanged as a Nazi organization in Cap 2: Cap Harder, and really in the first movie, too. I…

This isn’t something I’d considered at all. I’ve been Hail Hydraing people all week. Sneaking up to people, whispering it in their ear and walking off. 

To me, Hydra is this fictional terrorist organization I’ve been reading about since I was a kid, and not one I ever particularly associated with the Nazi party (excluding their on-again/off-again affiliation with THE Marvel Nazi, The Red Skull). Although, in the context of the Marvel movies, I can completely understand why it might upset people. 

Although I’m not Jewish, having grown up in a British city that’d been bombed during World War 2 and been raised around the generation for whom the Nazis were considered the ultimate face of evil - I sort of get this. It always bothered me to see Nazi characters fetishized, even the entirely fictional ones. I mean, if I recall, technically the Red Skull of the Marvel movies isn’t even a Nazi (he’s this supposedly worse fictional thing), but seeing a kid wearing a Red Skull mask or T-Shirt, or a grown man buying a $300 Red Skull statue? Yeah, that makes me uncomfortable. Even though in the back of my head I know that it’s not an explicit endorsement of Nazi values; it rings alarm bells.

My buddies over at The Cinnamon Snail need help getting their scrumptastic vegan food truck back on streets of New York City & New Jersey. To do that they need to buy and refurbish a brand new truck that will be more reliable than the current one. They’ve started a Kickstarter to help pay for the new truck and the renovations.

As part of the effort I’m involved in 2 different rewards. For $50 you get a thirst with my drawing ofa vegan donut squeezing plane juice out of air force one. (I’m still not sure why).

And for all you fancy big pocket backers you can lay down $250 for the Snail a  do a portrait of you combined with your favorite donut (or any other desert really). I made this digital painting of Nicolas Cage as what we suspect would be his favorite, the toasted pistachio cake donut.
