Commune Magazine, a flashy and professional looking “antifa” publication that sought to provide intellectual direction to the anarchist movement, announced yesterday that it would discontinue its operations and refund all its subscribers.

The catalyst for this decision were allegations that an unnamed editor had raped another left-wing activist. A source familiar with the matter has confirmed to National Justice that the alleged rapist is Shyam P. Khanna, a 31-year-old anarchist organizer based in Brooklyn.

According to a March 28 Medium post by Jessica “Leila” Raven, Khanna had been abusing her and then committed a rape against her. Raven then confronted him, demanded an apology and asked him to read four feminist essays. After Khanna agreed to read the articles, he raped her again, the accuser says.

A second post, dated May 7th, repeats the allegations and details a prolonged campaign to have him removed from Commune Mag’s staff.

Khanna appears to be heavily involved with the “antifa” scene in New York City. On social media, his now deleted account @dollarpizza1 can be seen repeatedly interacting with Jamie Peck of the Antifada podcast as well as Doug Henwood, a wealthy anti-white figure who has been accused of predatory and strange sexual behavior himself.

While Commune Mag has been canceled, it appears that two editors accused of protecting him, UC Davis professor Joshua Clover and Berkeley’s Jasper Bernes, are going to continue their similarly named anarchist poetry project Commune Editions in spite of demands that they shut it down as well.

    He seems like a pencil-neck type. This is some fearsome antifa street fighter? Also sounds like he had a weird relationship with this ‘victim’. Strange people, must be a subculture of a sort.

  2. How is Antifa Anarchist? Somebody help me.

  3. After the first rape, she insisted he read four feminists essays. He did that and then raped her again. OK, sounds like a well-adjusted pleasant bunch of folks.

    next time she should do more than demand an apology

    As for Raven, her allowance of this garbage (so she won’t be called anti-you-know-what-ic?) is inexcusable! I’d have kicked him in his you-know-where….

  7. Weird says:

    Seems that in this instance, the word “rape” has a different meaning than in the real world

    These Antifa dogs must be hunted and destroyed. I urge anyone who believes in freedom and liberty to find cells of Antifa and eliminate them with all means possible. These maggots don’t deserve to breath the air that decent Americans breath. Identify where they hold meetings and storm them in a search and destroy fashion then systemically eradicate these rabbles.

    Wow, who’d have thought that desperate beta males could be rapists? Considering that a soyboy that hasn’t had pussy since pussy had him might try to get him some drunken feminista is pretty amazing to the goy left. Typical libtard

    This nonwhite mongrel is going to get to know the brothers well in jail and then later in the Big House if we have a happy ending to this story. Look at this dweeb. He is going to be washing drawers, socks, and more than likely will be turned out and passed around by the people he “loves” so much. Talk about poetic justice. lolol.

    Great idea. Let me know if everything goes okay, and maybe I’ll help with the second one. My name is Larry Finkleheimstein, from NYC, and I’m in the book.

    Yeah, I hate it when they breath the air that decent Americans breath. That just honks me off something fierce.

    @WorkingClass

    I am guessing that Antifa is heavily influenced by the philosophy of Max Stirner “a German philosopher who is often seen as one of the forerunners of nihilism, existentialism, psychoanalytic theory, postmodernism, and individualist anarchism” (Wikipedia). I don’t really consider Stirner to be an anarchist philosophy, perhaps more like a hyper-libertarian, Darwinian ideology (he is certainly not an anarcho-communist or co-operative anarchist).

    Stirner:-

    “I do not demand any right, therefore I need not recognize any either.”

    Therefore, a philosophy that allows you to “rape” if you want?

    Not surprisingly, Stirner was an important influence on the Nazi-type of fascist ideology.

    He raped her, agreed to read her essays, and then raped her again. That has to be the worst gimmick for picking up chicks I’ve ever heard.

  22. There’s just something about young leftists organizing that begets rape accusations like crazy. I’ve seen it time and time again; the frequency of it puts your local college’s Title IX office to shame. (Indeed, the phenomenon gives them plenty of work when the alleged rapes happen on campus, like in my freshman roommate’s “Maoist” LARPing group.) It’s tempting to chalk it all up to the fantastic imaginations of borderline/bipolar, grievance-drunk young women

    [MORE]

    (especially when one lays eyes on something like this https://batjc.files.wordpress.com/2019/06/comic-book-final.pdf, complete with a dash of gender confusion that further underscores the degeneracy)

    but many of their male counterparts really do see them as easy lays who they are entitled to fuck by virtue of having the same “revolutionary” political views. Many accusations are exaggerated or fabricated, I’m sure, but lecherous, slimy leftists like the man (such as he is) pictured above hardly provoke one to muster up a proper presumption of innocence, especially when you know he would never extend you the same courtesy.

    As often as not, in fact, the rapist semi-privately admits to it but still tries to worm out of whatever loony form of accountability his equally loony victim tries to foist on him (such as in the pathetic story detailed in the article). Zine after zine has been published by angry leftist women decrying the patriarchal violence of their male comrades— which I find understandable. But inevitably, their devotion to whatever idiotic ideology they promote prevents them from understanding how the juvenile combination of performative lawlessness and sexual profligacy which inevitably characterizes their political projects always seems to encourage the men involved to engage in some good ol’ fashioned “patriarchal violence” against them. The commenter above who mentioned Stirner recognizes a similar nihilism in their violent, and adolescent, entitlement.

    If this kind of sordid lunacy interests you (in the way a true crime documentary or car crash would), and you can stand to suffer through some histrionic anarchist proselytizing, this is an interesting read which really sums up how morally bankrupt, flatly brainless, and blessedly hopeless the creatures on this corner of the left are.

    The feminist essays must’ve triggered him.

    Lol, that was not “rape”, just bad sex. What woman would ask for an “apology” and to “read feminist essays” after being raped by an African holding a knife?

    After Khanna agreed to read the articles, he raped her again,

    Well, this I think I can understand… Feminist essays can drive anyone crazy and angry.

  25. Getaclue says:
    @Maple Curtain

    Seems your saying the two deserved each other? Well at least they got a good “reading” out of it–that’s something real important in Leftist culture– having a “reading”….

  26. CBTerry says:

    To paraphrase Oscar Wilde on the Death of Little Nell, anybody who can read this article without laughing must have a heart of stone.

    So un-woke commenters are saying this was not rape? Well, listen to Raven and get woke, dammit: “You asked me many times: “Why me? Why do you keep coming back?” I told you that I was listening to my body, and my body was hooked. I didn’t know then, but I know now, that when post-traumatic stress disorder is activated, it can feel a lot like being turned on.”

  27. @WorkingClass

    Thank you. That’s the first thought I had. ‘Antifa’ may not be the precise opposite of anarchism but it’s well on the way there. Mostly it’s a well-funded, co-ordinated attempt to confer legitimacy upon violence against white people, whatever form that violence may take. Behind it is the far reach of the Establishment and the MSM it controls. ‘Antifa’ could be called henchmen but that’s frankly too masculine an image to suit them. Spoiled children is probably more like it.

    Regarding the present case, such as it is? Hmm, always a pleasure to see losers hoisted on their own petards, even when the petards are tiny.

  28. Muggles says:

    As others here note, if you read the “victim’s” lengthy and self absorbed rants via Medium, you can’t escape the conclusion that this wasn’t actual “rape.” Not violent rape anyway. Nowhere in her word storm does she specify what makes her repeated encounters with this creep rape.

    He might be guilty of various mind games, but violent rape, involuntary, doesn’t seem to be part of this story. Why does a self described “queer mama” want to sleep with this sketchy guy anyway?

    This kind of woman will bore you to death. Of course if she gets pissed off, then she launches some kind of ideological war. Conducts her own mini Stalinist purge. Now it seems that Mr. “rapist” here is worthy of condemnation, Being a brainless lefty. Hanging around with an unsavory crowd. Advocating god knows what. But “Commune” magazine is no more. One good result.

    I have long believed that antifa is largely a loose crowd of low IQ leftists, criminal users and police informants. This not really rapist may be a snitch, as he sure looks shifty. But looks can be deceiving. Once long ago I hung loosely at times with some leftists. Back in the real antiwar days. None were this big into Loserdom. And the poor women who become infected with every strain of Identity Marxism on the shelf are extremely pathetic. Get over yourself honey! Find a good man (or woman). Find Jesus or at least Dr. Phil. Maybe Oprah. Get an education, job and life.

    Hanging with communities of lost soul losers, at best, and grifter con artists and narcissists on the other, is to chose a path of personal failure. And Hell. Remove those tats and body jewelry and head to Omaha or someplace in the Midwest. Go to Church. Join AA. Do something besides anything you’ve ever done recently. Your commie “friends” are just poisoning you.

  29. @Toronto Mike

    LOL… “After the first rape, she insisted he read four feminists essays. He did that and then raped her again. ” Sounds like she liked it. I love all these freak Feminazis…They put out then cry rape. LMAO! Play victim just like Blacks. Blacks have taught them well.

    So the essence of your post is that through the Stirner connection Antifa is a Nazi-type fascist ideology?

    “Nothing could be more logical or in the best political tradition than for a type of fascism to be ushered into this country by leaders who are now vigorously denouncing fascism.” –Lawrence Dennis, 1936
