Pet peeve #783,051:


When people try to claim the revolutions occurring in the Middle East/North Africa as inherently part of the Occupy Movement or other Western “struggles,” particularly those brought on by the economy.

No, bro, your struggle to spread Marxism isn’t the same as the Egyptian people overthrowing Mubarak. 

Why do I see this sort of garbage all the time?

Same thing where I am. Some people here seem to think that every struggle for the rights of the indigenous communities, environmental conservation or even freedom of expression are intrinsically linked with Marxism. Some of these people may not have been born yet when groups like the Stasi and KGB made sure everyone toed the line in the “people’s republics.”
