        Her tail is always talked about by people we come across on walks because it looks like it’s been dipped in ink lol. Her natural eyeliner also seems to be a trait people enjoy.

          Reminds me, my dog has a spot on her tail that looks like a dirty spot. When we first got her I thought it was actual dirt lol

        She even has a red collar (although blue suits her blonde more)! One day I’m going to get her and her brother some commie pins/badges to put on their collars.

    It’s a new week and it started off with a holiday. Cleaned my house, had a run and took a walk through a local park. I made seed bombs and was throwing them all over the place. Probably looked like a lunatic to people passing by but then again they didn’t ask questions either.

    It’s sad but I am considering withdrawing myself from the party I am a member of. It’s not that I hate them or that anything noteworthy happened between us but I feel like there are lots of things I want to do but have no room for within the party structure. Only problem is, is that I don’t know what to do instead.

      I can see that. PVDA-PTB seem to be too focused on reform to me, although I still think they are the best option and that they have some revolutionary ideas. It’s possible to make them more revolutionary IMO.

      I will say I kinda feel the same about BIJ1. I have been toying with the idea of joining NCPN. I kinda feel like BIJ1 can never become a big party and never become the vanguard. The fact that it’s such a big tent party doesn’t help. I like the idea of intersectionality and think that every communist org should include that in their ideals, but for BIJ1 I feel like that’s one of the only things that bind the party together. There’s no coherent leftism in BIJ1 since there’s people from all sorts of leftist movements. We call ourselves a extraparliamentary party but I see nothing of that. I’ve only seen more extraparliamentary work recently but that’s because we’re not in parliament or the municipal council anymore. There wasn’t even a BIJ1 delegation at 1st of May for fuck’s sake. But I hope I can help steer the party more towards Marxism-Leninism and hope I can make them work with other leftist parties more and focus more on extraparliamentary politics. But it’s hrd since I’m just one person, and the other ML’s I know from BIJ1 have left the party now.

        I could join BIJ1 and we could steer them towards ML together

            It’s different, when it’s an already socialist organisation with MLs already present in the organisation It will not be so hard to steer them the right way

        I disagree. PVDA-PTB toes a fine line, tbh.

        Besides, reform is good to give your working-class constituency victories; the communist movement is not as strong as it once was.

        As long as revolution is the main goal, then movement-building and reform here and there are fine.

          I’m not against reform and I support PVDA-PTB. I just hope that revolution is the main goal of PVDA-PTB. Maybe I’ll ask if I ever come across an inportant person inside PVDA-PTB

        Partly yes. I mean, I get that it’s elections and that it is important. But at the same time the default plan for now fell back to asking people to vote for us and that’s not my thing I guess.

        Maybe when the election season is over things will get better. Maybe we get elected and, God forbid, have to default back to electoral politics.

        Other things that bug me are mainly personal things. I have a busy live with all kinds of things, work included and I don’t always have the time to show up to last minute changed plans. Sometimes I get passive agressive remarks about that and I have an issue with that.

        We’ll see how it goes. The alternatives mentioned so far are trotskyist or anarchist orgs and I’m not even thinking about doing that lol.

    The Green Party over here is launching an attack on our party for ‘not being able to condemn Putin’. Which is weird, because the party has done that on multiple occasions now. Even on the first day of the SMO. The party even issued a motion to get Putin to the ICC, however cringe it may be.

    I wonder why the greenies are taking this stance when it is so easily debunked.

    I made a very obviously ironic joke about how they hate us for our freedoms and 4k karma. By far my most liked comment. Lots of pro-Bush replies too. I think I’m done with irony, satire, and show don’t tell (which is actually CIA propaganda) until we’ve reached socialism.

    The far right will win the elections here and I just realized something: I am a migrant. I might be looking at being deported lol.

      I’m a child of a migrant and there is a non-zero chance she’ll be deported, especially since she doesn’t have Dutch nationality. But she does have EU nationality and she’s white so I think she’s alright

        Yeah it probably helps to be white (as always). Unfortunately I do consider Vlaams Belang to be even more unhinged than PVV.

    I got over my issues with the party and decided to just continue. I figured now is not the time to abandon the only party actively fighting the far right.

    The country has been once again blessed with days of torrential downpour. When I lived in The Netherlands I always thought I experienced rain. That was until I moved to Belgium.
