Leslie Feinberg, who identified as an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist, died on November 15. She succumbed to complications from multiple tick-borne co-infections, including Lyme disease, babeisiosis, and protomyxzoa rheumatica, after decades of illness.
She died at home in Syracuse, NY, with her partner and spouse of 22 years, Minnie Bruce Pratt, at her side. Her last words were: “Remember me as a revolutionary communist.”
Remember you as someone who supported a system that slaughtered over 100,000,000 human beings in the 20th Century and enslaved millions more. Your proposal is acceptable.
Speaking of hippies, some residents of Berzerkley invaded a Whole Foods store and held a funeral for a frozen chicken. I am not making this up.
