Wait, there are sides now?

I hate people talking about media "fanning the flames of division" as if there are two legitimate sides to the shit-show that is 2017 politics. ONE SIDE IS LITERAL NAZIS. I hate when people say "just ignore them, they just want attention." THEY ARE NAZIS. Fascism is a cancer. I don't care where you fall on the left--right spectrum, cancer can't be ignored. Cut it out before it kills us.

Whatever happened to defending the right to speak

This right has no meaning if there is a counter right to shut down speech ad hoc.

The NeoNazis marched through Skokie in 1977 and the world continued to spin on.

I understand wanting to nip a tragedy in the bud, but it seems like these inbreds want to be hated, it justifies their paranoia to have you take them as credible threats.

You do recognize your bizarre contradiction, right? I'm wondering whether you actually understand what 'fascism' means and stands for??

Fascism is basically a nosnense word. Sure, you can use the left-wing authoritarian definition of fascism that talks about "nationalism", "authoritarianism," etc. except for the fact that the "left wing" is _more_ authoritarian than nazis ever were. The USSR had restrictions on speech _all of the time_. Nazi Germany had wartime restrictions. North Korea has restrictions all of the time. So does Canada.

The fact is hat everything you know about politics is wrong. People in authoritarian regimes are raised to be stupid and to equate opposition to the regime with some "negative" word, that is all. This is true in North Korea, Canada, USSR, etc.
