The elderly man being attacked by an Athens (Greece) cop in this photo is not a member of the black bloc or a nobody. It is Manolis Glezos, the Greek national hero who, on the 30th of May 1941 tore down the swastika flag from the Acropolis, an act for which he suffered torture and imprisonment. It was the first public act of the Resistance in Greece, only a month after the Nazi take-over.

Who would have dreamed that seventy years later, a dirty coward wearing a uniform serving the capitalists that do not even deserve to wipe the soles of his feet has the gall to touch/assault him?

Apparently men putting flowers in their beards is a big thing now. What the hell is this? What next, letting vines or tree roots hang out your ass crack? I mean, Jesus fucking Christ. “Hey, look at me. I’m so masculine with this big, sexy beard, but I’m putting flowers in it so that I can make a deep statement about me having a soft side.” This is what the degenerate, millennial pop culture does: it takes something as beautiful and as wonderful as flowers, and then it defecates all over it by integrating whatever it is into some hipster bull shit fad that everyone obsesses over for four months until they move on to the next stupid craze.
