The Revolutionary Losers League

Posted on | December 20, 2015 | 17 Comments

Strange news from Tokyo:

Anti-Christmas protesters calling themselves “Losers with Women” marched through Tokyo’s streets Saturday, bashing the upcoming holiday as a capitalist ploy that also discriminates against singletons.
The group of about 20 — part of the Communist-inspired group that routinely protests Western holidays — marched under angry banners that read “Smash Christmas!” in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, where couples and families strolled for holiday shopping.
The scrooges — mostly single men — said they were against capitalism and were opposed to the commercialisation of Christmas.
“In this world, money is extracted from people in love, and happy people support capitalism,” said the head of the organisation, formally called Kakumeiteki Hi-mote Domei, or the Revolutionary Losers’ League.
“Christmas is the most symbolic event for this,” he added.
The man . . . said the rally was also in support of unloved men.
“Unpopular men, who don’t have a girlfriend or are not married, are overly discriminated. We want to break this barrier,” he told AFP amid the shouting protesters.

In America, guys like this call themselves “Democrats.”

    I especially like the quote “Happy people support capitalism,” as though that’s a damning indictment.

    Of course, the obverse is that Communism is for miserable embittered losers. However, a quick look at OWS and Bernie Sanders supporters would instantly dispel that impression.

    It’s for miserable embittered losers consumed by jealousy and envy.

    What the heck are they doing with Christmas anyway? Aren’t they all Shinto and some other weird religions?

    They’re such losers that they’ve got the wrong holiday. Valentine’s Day isn’t for another month and a half.

    Oh, Japan can always get weirder. But sometimes it needs a little help…

    Heh, this is where I’m glad I have flash turned off by default so I have to specifically activate it, and by your reaction, I don’t think I will.

    The guy is funny and the girls are cute, in my opinion. Give it a shot.

    A colleague of mine has a girlfriend who works on the Sanders campaign, which is apparently made of largely of people who couldn’t get hired by the Hillary campaign.
