The thing is, it doesn't start with "You're a Nazi", it starts with years of saying, "Wow, that's not cool" and hearing "I don't need to care about your feelings, who cares if I OffEnDed you" and so on. It's a lot of not caring and intentionally ignoring people telling you to knock certain things off and letting things fester. You're not a Nazi, but you hang out with people who "just have questions" about the Holocaust. You're not a Nazi but you think race science should considered because freedom. Like, too many people've been immersing themselves in more and more radical content and suddenly you look around and it's just... fuckin Nazis everywhere. Except it wasn't sudden.
@cambrian_era i do start with you're a nazi, when they start with antifa is the real fascism.
@cambrian_era @lastprincess day after Charlottesville (which is where I was born) I had a call with my parents where they, at one point, dropped “but you don’t realize how violent the Antifa were” to which I had to alarm them by yelling abruptly “You. Had. Literal. Fucking. Nazis. Taking. Over. My. Home. Town. You know? The ones we had a world war over due to their beliefs” they shut up real quick. But Lord knows if it stuck.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
