Which Richmond Comrade Are You?

You got: Comrade Thormann

Good un! Yer answers got the cult of personality amongst RVA and Appalachia's left: Bradley Thormann! You have been around the block long enough to understand the notions of each sect of communism and socialism to know how to unite and fight, additionally, you like a sprinkle of Zehrism here and there. You are willing to take the revolution to the streets and put your body on the line to defend the working class. You hate cops, and you love cornbread. In fact, the only place you wanna see a cop car is a demolition derby!

You got: Comrade Seress

Well hey there! You're Kris Seress. A.K.A. an anarcho-communist that abides to principles of ancom thought and Marxism. You think Trotskyists are burnt out comrades, and you believe violence is a necessary tool to overthrow the bourgeoisie. You support electoral politics in a limited realm, but are doubtful of it having any impact beyond local levels. Above all else you think revolutionary politics are the proper catalyst to ignite change. Don't vote, fight! Also, abolish sports!

Oh man! :-( You're Comrade Makhno :-(, the shitposter of the far left, defender of Anarcho-Hoxaism, lover of Mao, hater of Trotsky, and a tankie in the eyes of Comrade Centrist, Tyler. Just like her, you enjoy sad reacting to every post, and but won't hesitate to crack a smile when you see a silly liberal doing liberalish things. Keep on frowning!

Anti-capitalism and green politics are your calling Mx. Levi! You're the online sib of your loving, yet centrist ciswhite shitposting pal, Comrade Tyler. However, you are more progressive and left-leaning in your convictions than he is! You have a soft spot for the Green Party of the United States, but hold true to anti-capitalism, as you know it to be a mechanism to perpetuate racism!

You got: Comrade Tyler

Fugggg :DDDD You got Comrade Tyler! You in the past were basically the left-wing coalition of Tabbism, though lately you have drifted away from Centrism to Socialism/Democratic Socialism, depending on how your mood that day. You're not exactly fond of violence, although you understand it's need, and find safety in smugly mocking the far left and far right, although truly you want to piss off the far right more, and drink their jars of tears when you say "free Palestine." Happy shitposting!

Get on your nitrite gloves and let's go flying with the pigeons, as you are Comrade Pryor! A lover of birds, puns, and an admirer of Marx, and a defender of student rights, you have strong skepticism of the free market, and are willing to go through great lengths to kill off capitalism. Or should we say...crapitalism!

Is communism great, but Seressian revisionism of anti-sports too much for you? Then you might just be Comrade Campbell! You aren't sure what irks you more: the Caps losing in the second round of the NHL Playoffs at the expense of the Pens year after year, or the fact that the United States still clangs on to late-stage capitalism. Regardless, you will still go to the Kickers soccer game next weekend after a Richmond Struggle meeting.

To some you're just seen as another communist, but in your circles you are seen an individual willing to grab white ignorance by the throat until the oppressor coughs up a lung.

You got: Comrade Tabb

It doesn't get more square in the middle than this, as you are Aaron Tabb! You believe in civil discourse is the main driver for change, and are a pacifist when it comes to violence within protest. While you have admiration to social democracy, you generally support aspects of capitalism, but want to adopt a more inclusive model of the current system. You acknowledge systemic racism, but are willing to dialogue with those who may be racially biased. Deep down you believe sects of the left and right together can triangulate the best possible system.

Say hello to neoliberalism and goodbye to fash! It's Ankur that fits your type! Generally speaking, you support the Democratic Party, regardless of their convictions that might fall out of line. You see neoliberalism as a necessary tool in certain contexts, and nothing irks you more than the progressive wing's desire to be politically correct. You will go as far as calling them "SJW's xD". You also enjoy a good evening of some Bill Maher, but throw off some people by liking Bernie Sanders.
