Galina Krasskova has screenshots of people suggesting strategies to use against “neo-conservative racists in the occult/pagan community”. I particularly wish to highlight two of the suggested strategies.
2. Trap them. Catch them doing or saying something illegal and record it. Anonymously notify the correct authorities. If he’s racist he’s probably also a raging misogynist, here is a pretty high percent chance he beats women. Bust him for that.
3. Sabotage. Sabotage everything. Their protests, their social events, their rituals…their relationships. Sabotage them physically, sabotage them magically. Block them at protests. Blast distractingly loud noises in the vicinity of their rituals. Curse them liberally.
Dear fellow Pagan and polytheist progressives:
If we do these things, we become what we are trying to fight.
ETA 8/30: Sarenth has a detailed breakdown of exactly why these strategies are horrifying.
I do not particularly appreciate that Sarenth is lumping people like me in with people who advocate that, but I understand why that’s how that post is written. The people who advocate that claim to be speaking for the entirety of left, liberal, and progressive Paganism and polytheism—and those of us who fall somewhere under that LLPPP umbrella and who find those strategies appalling aren’t speaking loud enough to drown the left-fascists out.
