Revolutionary greetings comrades!

I want to make something perfectly clear! – We Burn MAGA hats and we don yellow vests! Without a doubt the ideology and spirt of anarchy is driving the yellow vest movement. If I can recognize this from my solitary confinement prison cell in the bigoted state of Texas, I know that you can see it from your vantage point.

The conditions for a yellow vest like movement in the United Snakes of Amerikkka are most certainly present. Contrary to popular belief, the yellow vest movement is not just about a fuel tax. Humyn beings who live in France are fighting for their right to survive.

At first Emmanuel Macron, the French President, totally ignored the yellow vesters – not giving any attention to their grievances at all. Macron has proven himself to be out of touch with the needs of the people he governs. He increases taxes for the poor and suspends taxes for the rich! Week after week they have come to flood the streets of Paris, France to protest the oppression of the poorest cross section of French society. But this is not just about the poor–the common womyn and common man who works a job cannot afford to take care of themselves in France today! Macron and his cronies have ignored this!

Now Macron wants to make concessions – but if the yellow vest movement would have given up after the first week, there would have not been any concessions – so without a doubt we see that direct action got the goods! Macron seeks to use the police to crush the movement. Thousands are being systemically arrested and detained. People are being arrested not for actually breaking the law; if the police suspect that you may be thinking about protesting in France you are being taken and placed in jail.

The mutual aid and solidarity shown on a mass level in France has most definitely been inspiring. People brining food and supplies to protesters so that the movement can be sustained 24 hours a day. People from all walks of life driving by and honking their horns in 100% solidarity with the yellow vest movement.

I yearn for this to happen in Amerikkka soon — don’t you?

Now let’s look at what is happening here in Amerika! Trumps House of Cards is beginning to come tumbling down! This racist; this bigot; this fascist white supremacist is being exposed. Donald Trump fraudulently obtained the office of president of the United Snakes of Amerika! He has the nerve to scold the capitalist pigs who operate General Motors for shutting the doors on factories. This hypocrite! Yes, it is true – Obama the shyster gave billions of dollars to General Motors, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae! We all saw it in real time! No hope, no change! We got this chump named Trump!

Comrades please listen to me! It is in the capitalist pigs’ nature to do whatever it can to gain profits by any means! There is no honor or integrity here! These people don’t give a damn about the unemployed workers in Canada, Michigan, or Ohio. The economy is going to hell in a hand basket! The corporate elite see clearly what the writing on the wall is saying. And Robert Mueller is doing the writing. Want to know what is says? Donald Trump is going to be impeached! Therefore, any agreement that the capitalists made with Trump for the tax breaks and backroom deals and promises he made if they will hire folks and make it “look like” the economy is getting stronger – all that is dead, dead, dead! Trump is on the way out! But he is not going to go down without a fight! Time for us to don our yellow vests.

Comrades, you know why these bigots in Texas and in Trump’s administration don’t like me? Because I pay close attention to details. Remember when Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly was threatening Omarosa Newman? Now look at this fool Kelly! Look at Rex Tillerson! Trump called him a moron and a dummy. I mean didn’t Trump choose him? And what about Nikki Haley? She got out when the getting was good! But will we ever forget that Haley ignored the execution of sixty one unarmed civilians in Palestine by Israeli Defense Forces? Sixty one of my Palestinian sisters and brothers assassinated and Haley, Kushner, and his wife dd not acknowledge their right to life!

And what about Yemen? Oh! Now after the murder and execution of Jamal Khashoggi, Congress wants to re-think the United Snakes’ support for the Saudi Arabian government as they have engaged in an aggressive genocide of the Yemeni people. Hillary Clinton is starting to feel vindicated. But hold on sister! Didn’t you laugh while Ghadaffi was being hacked to death? Did you not make illegal deals with the Saudis in order to give them fighter jets so they could rain death and destruction on the people of Yemen? Your political career is over Hillary! Relax and get over it!

Comrades, I was hoping that after the Bret Kavanaugh debacle that we had a chance to see those beautiful black hoodies and t-shirts and handkerchiefs – but not! Hush money to Stormy Daniels? Not enough! Climate change, wild fires, murders of innocents by white nationalists getting their cues from Trump – not enough! What will it take to get the Amerikan public to say enough is enough and pick up their own yellow vests?

Do you think this bully diplomacy that Trump is usng against China is going to work? Trump don’t give a damn about the auto workers, the farmers who are committing suicide at higher rates or the immigrant children in Tornillo, Texas who are being warehoused in modern day concentration kkkamps by the Department of Homeland Security.

What happened to the threatening hordes in the caravan? Comrades, as I have said previously, all this was fear mongering bullshit used in the run-up to the midterm elections to manipulate and sway the voters who are blind, deaf, and dumb!

Comrades, aren’t you curious what happened to all these bad people? You don’t see the manipulative and coercive tactics used by the corporate owned media? All of a sudden the caravan disappears from the news cycle? Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife get charged with bribery – over sixty witnesses! We barely hear a peep – but the media comes up with a story about Hezbollah tunnels! You don’t think we see you? As Minister Robert Muhammad from Houston, Texas always says, “The people are smarter than you think!”

Comrades, as we discuss the possibility of organizing our movement, let us learn some lessons from the yellow vest movement. Use Signal and other encrypted forms of communication. Social sentinel is real – just because Geofeedia went out of business does not mean Big Brother at the Pentagon, CIA, DEA, an FBI are not watching and waiting for us to don our yellow vests. Let’s be pragmatic and analytical in the way we move. Today I tell all of you: Burn MAGA hats! Don Yellow Vests! And fight these fascists wherever we may encounter them! And to our comrades in Paris I have something to say! Sous les paves, la plage!

Dare to struggle! Dare to win! All Power to the People!
