odinsblog: Yes, these are real life Nazis, and NO, we aren’t going to defeat them with “love and tolerance” OTHER LIES you will be hearing from Nazi sympathizers: 1. you should respect a Nazi’s freedom of speech (NO—nobody owes respect to racists or Nazis and hate speech that incites violence is not protected under the 1st Amendment) 2. you’re no better or “the same” as them for fighting back (WRONG—this false equivalence would make the side who believes in genocide and enslavement “just as bad” as the side trying not to be the victims of genocide and enslavement) 3. hate breeds hate (NO—injustice, oppression, racism and generations of systematic discrimination is what breeds hate) 4. “both sides” are at fault (WRONG—this is another false equivalency that treats the aggressor, James Alex Fields, as innocently as the victim, Heather Heyer) 5. “Burning the Confederate flag or destroying Confederate monuments are acts of violence, just as bad as violence against people” (NO—that’s asinine and you’re an idiot if you believe that false equivalence, property ≠ people) 6. it’s just a “difference of opinions” and everyone has a right to their opinions (NO—dehumanization, anti-Blackness, antisemitism, Islamophobia, ablism and trans/homophobia are not harmless opinions; they are tools for systems of oppression, and NO, you do not have to blindly give respect to Nazis who are seeking to destroy others for being their innate selves) Many of these are obviously false equivalencies, but what they all have in common is they essentially tell you not to resist, and eternally turn the other cheek and “love” the people attacking or oppressing you It’s like this: Nazis support genocide. They actively support racism and racial discrimination. They literally believe in a “master race”. Their end goal is to either destroy or subjugate all non-white people. Nazis and white supremacists are a cancer to humanity. If you discovered that you had cancer, you wouldn’t try to love or tolerate it or anything else—you would immediately begin doing everything in your power to eradicate it. There is no such thing as having an acceptable amount of cancer. Nazis and white supremacists need to be treated like the cancer they are And please pay close attention to anyone who uses vague “both sides” language to avoid assigning blame to anyone, or worse, ask you to “try to understand” the Nazis’ side, as if the only two sides aren’t right vs. the side the Nazis are on: evil : Keegan Stephan @KeeganNYC The left just calls anyone who disagrees with them a nazi." odinsblog: Yes, these are real life Nazis, and NO, we aren’t going to defeat them with “love and tolerance” OTHER LIES you will be hearing from Nazi sympathizers: 1. you should respect a Nazi’s freedom of speech (NO—nobody owes respect to racists or Nazis and hate speech that incites violence is not protected under the 1st Amendment) 2. you’re no better or “the same” as them for fighting back (WRONG—this false equivalence would make the side who believes in genocide and enslavement “just as bad” as the side trying not to be the victims of genocide and enslavement) 3. hate breeds hate (NO—injustice, oppression, racism and generations of systematic discrimination is what breeds hate) 4. “both sides” are at fault (WRONG—this is another false equivalency that treats the aggressor, James Alex Fields, as innocently as the victim, Heather Heyer) 5. “Burning the Confederate flag or destroying Confederate monuments are acts of violence, just as bad as violence against people” (NO—that’s asinine and you’re an idiot if you believe that false equivalence, property ≠ people) 6. it’s just a “difference of opinions” and everyone has a right to their opinions (NO—dehumanization, anti-Blackness, antisemitism, Islamophobia, ablism and trans/homophobia are not harmless opinions; they are tools for systems of oppression, and NO, you do not have to blindly give respect to Nazis who are seeking to destroy others for being their innate selves) Many of these are obviously false equivalencies, but what they all have in common is they essentially tell you not to resist, and eternally turn the other cheek and “love” the people attacking or oppressing you It’s like this: Nazis support genocide.

lordandgodoftheobvious: snommelp: argentarachnids: reverseracism: Exactly. When I was learning about The United States Civil War during my K-12 years I always found it odd that there were “arguments” that the battle was really about money/currency. Because lets be honest, HOW were they making that money? Through CHATTEL ENSLAVEMENT. Seriously I hate how white people keep skirting the issue like this. “It was about state rights” Started over the right to own slaves. To all of my fellow white people living in the South - it is our duty to keep the record straight on this. The racists who pull this revisionism won’t listen to people of color who try to correct it. Hell, they usually won’t even listen to a white man like me who speaks the truth they don’t like. But speak it anyway, and don’t let the lie go unchallenged. “The Civil War was about money!” Yes. Specifically, the money from an economy built on the backs of enslaved people. “The Civil War was about states’ rights!” Yes – whether or not Southern States had the right to enslave an entire ethnicity. “This flag is about heritage, not hate!” Yes – a heritage of enslaving an entire people group and attempting to secede rather than stop enslaving people. That’s the job for me and my fellow Southern white people. Of course, y’all up North don’t get to just sit back and relax. You’ve got your own lies to fight against – specifically, lies about racism not historically or currently being a problem up there. It was, and it is, and we’ve all got to fight against these lies however they manifest themselves around us. Anyway, according to the fucking vice president of the confederacy (content warning: this is a transcript of a speech given by the vice president of the CSA, so…you know, figure it out) the war, and the whole reason for the existence of the confederacy in the first place, was totally about slavery. : Al Letson @Al_Letson It's much easier to say the Civil War was about money, when your ancestors weren't the currency Jenna Abrams @Jenn_Abrams To those people, who hate the Confederate flag. Did you know that the flag and the war wasn't about slavery, it was all about money 4/24/17, 1:39 PM lordandgodoftheobvious: snommelp: argentarachnids: reverseracism: Exactly.
