Alongside the chants of ‘Blood and Soil’, ‘You Will Not Replace Us’, 
‘White Lives Matter’ and ‘Fuck You Faggots’, some of the privileged 
fascists rallying at Charlottesville, Virginia gave their opinions on 
the Syrian issue. “Support the Syrian Arab Army,” they said. “Fight the 
globalists. Assad did nothing wrong. Replacing Qaddafi was a fucking 
mistake.”

It’s worth noting that these talking points – support for Assad and the 
conspiracy theories which absolve him of blame for mass murder and 
ethnic cleansing, the Islamophobia which underpins these theories, the 
notion that ‘globalists’ staged the Arab Revolutions, and the idea that 
the Libyan revolution was entirely a foreign plot – are shared to some 
extent or other by most of what remains of the left.
