Loving these anti-antifa memes
@Medic135, love getting downvoted by antifa sh!tstains
@Medic135, they're against anti-antifa jokes so I guess they're anti-anti-antifa
@K1lgore, "that just sounds like antifa with more steps" -Rick, probably
@Medic135, me too
@Medic135, SP always rejects my anti-antifa pic within an hour of me trying to upload 😪
@Richard Cypher, Does Stuckpixel even reject pics anymore? I just thought whatever wasn't gonna make it into recent was just put in uncut. I haven't got a single pic rejected since that update
@K1lgore, I thought the same thing and so far it's my only pic to get rejected. Lol as it is I had 3 pending uploads and the pic in question was the second in the middle of the 3. And it's already been taken out of pending lol
Socialism is the the first and necessary step towards communism. Fascism and socialism are two sides of the same coin as neither believe in individualism. It's all about the collective I.e. The government. Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin all had way more in common than what divided them. The ALT-right is leftist in almost all of their ideology. However, as someone who is conservative/libertarian and almost always votes Republican. The ALT-right resides in "my camp" which makes them even more disgusting than ANTIFA to me. They are wearing my jersey and add credence to the lefts attempts to brand me as a neo-nazi/white supremicist/white nationalist/fascist. With that said. ANTIFA is a disgusting organization as well and liberals would be better served to denounce them as they are wearing their jersey. Let the down-votes commence.
@Dyslexic eman resu, I would agree, however I tend to argue both points. Antifa; Power hungry ignorant group focussing on limiting the freedoms of my fellow Americans. Alt-right; Power hungry ignorant group focussing on limiting the freedoms of my fellow Americans. The fact that anybody on this planet think they know what is best for everyone is awful. You can never make everyone happy, so why is this particular ideal government better than his/hers.
Enter typical Rick and Morty quote on extra steps.
@TwoScoops, "That just sounds like fascism with extra steps"
@TwoScoops, That just sounds like "That just sounds like X with extra steps" with extra steps.
@Jdrawer, is anyone even counting the steps? My Fitbit broke
@Bethere2soon, Get some sand, put it into a rectangular wooden box roughly the size of your wrist. Glue it, and let it set. Using an elastic band, strap it to your wrist. Get an X-acto knife. Go running. Notch out a mark for every step you take, every move you make, every single day every time you pray, I'll be missing you.
Socialism is crap and fascism is crap.
Uh antifa are commies not nazis. I dig the hate on antifa but at least be accurate.
@HeroOfFunnypics, nazis were communist/socialist
@Pubmarine Shamwich, No, the nazi party initially marketed themselves as socialist to bring the communist workers to their side. Later they switched to a more fascist approach with anti-communist ideals.
*looks exactly the same*
National Socialism is honorable and overall a good ideology. Antifa is a subhuman based ideology that hates all the things the National Socialists are for.
I am German and deeply offended by this.
@Archduke Friedrich, national socialism is one thing but buddy, that's the nazi emblem. The nazi party's official title was "national socialist German workers' party" AKA NSDAP in German. ("Nazi" comes from the start of "national" and the -zi from "sozialistische", the German word for socialist).
Hitler revitalised the party but he also basically turned to fascism upon getting elected.
@Archduke Friedrich, holy crap you guys its possibly an actual nazi. I did nazi that coming
@Chicochang, it's quite clearly a troll. I see this all the time.
@YUNoJump, that might be relevant if there was a National Socialist German Worker's Party still, but there's only national socialist parties now and none of them are legal in Germany.
@Chicochang, well, I'm a German National Monarchist and want to abolish democracy in my fatherland, but I hate it when people talk bad about a certain history in Germany.
@Archduke Friedrich, all of Germany's history was bad. Not much good came from the German peoples
@YUNoJump, I know well about that, I'm German myself.
Die Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiterpartei ist mir sehr wohl bekannt, dennoch spricht du hier nicht auf meine Meinung, sondern versuchst du deine eigene erbärmliche Schändung von Worten zu verfassen
@Chicochang, this is a statement I cannot support, well, it's totally wrong. clearly you don't know much about German History. You're an Americunt, aren't you? Well, all this hate towards Germany only fuels the next uprising
@Archduke Friedrich, how many wars did the germans win against the US? I think I'll be fine
@Archduke Friedrich, lol nice bait
I don't get it
Gah, sorry to be that person but can someone enlighten me on what the second one is? I haven't caught up much on things going on around the world. Sorry mates.
@SweetSmiles, antifa, a terrorist organization that claims to be against fascism and such but acts like SA brownshirts
@SweetSmiles, Antifa is a reactive (they don't push policy), locally organized (not interconnected around the world) group mainly consisting of communists, socialists, and anarchists. They believe that violence is justified in combatting what they deem is fascism, racism, etc.
However, they have turned to violence at peaceful protests such as Boston, causing peaceful protestors and right-winged rally members alike to denounce them. I'm not sure if they are "officially" recognized as terrorists, but they are violent thugs who have been attacking people simply for wearing MAGA hats and other ridiculous reasons.
Inserting my opinion - (which has received mixed reviews in this community) - I don't like how people are equating them to literal Nazis who advocate genocide, sterilization, etc. Antifa are scum who use brownshirt tactics, but they are not the equivalent to the actual SA, who were branched to a proactive Nazi party. The street violence is about where the comparison ends.
@Blue Shirted Guy, do the US Nazis advocate for genocide? Genuine question, because I don't know. Fascism itself isn't inherently genocidal, like how communism isn't but communists have killed more than Nazism. So do these Nazis they are attacking actually believe all nonwhites should die, or does everyone just assume they do? At their rally, they chanted "Jews wont replace us" not "all Jews must die". Stupid chant anyways, like the Jews are going to want some redneck house in the south
@Oujosh29, well, if you're flying the literal Nazi flag, then of course. Nazism is a very specific form of fascism. Nazism is genocidal.
Now, if one identifies as a fascist and isn't flying the Nazi flag? Very possible they stand for different things. For instance, Mussolini's fascism wasn't as preoccupied with race.
@Blue Shirted Guy, that's a good point. I wonder if they've ever been stupid enough to go on record as genocidal. Everyone already hates them, might as well.
@Oujosh29, ya, I'm not sure if they have. I want to specify though that Nazism wasn't necessarily genocidal towards every non-Aryan. It all depended. If they succeeded though, I guess it's possible it could have evolved into this.
"Fun" fact, 98% of German Jews who survived in Nazi Germany were married to non-Jewish wives. The only mass German protest against the deportation of Jews came from housewives after their Jewish husbands were about to be sent off to concentration camps. And it worked. 6,000 unarmed women stood up to the Nazis more effectively than all of France
@XxDEMONBANExX, Thank you mate.
@Blue Shirted Guy, Thank you mate.
@Oujosh29, PhilosophyTube has some pretty interesting videos about (among other things) White Nationalism, and without making a judgment call, he points out that the idea of creating a new white ethnostate, particularly one that is pure or expands across America, is impossible without, yknow, genocide.
You can say the neoNazis are dog whistling or trying to maintain a more PC image, but regardless of whether they realize it or not, they're calling for genocide on way or another.
@Blue Shirted Guy, I think people like to draw the parallel between them and the beer hall putsch because it was radical commies and nazis fighting and then a bosterious guy rose to power. In my opinion todays turmoil is the diet coke of extremist outbreaks with antifa being a wussier version of the German commies.
@Chicochang, I don't understand what the parallel is though. I can see a parallel between the street fighting when viewed at face value, but I keep seeing people compare them to the SA, but then go on to define them as communists. That alone makes no sense. If you want to call them all commies, or compare today's turmoil to that of Germany's, there's one big distinction:
The German commies were fighting under a proactive political party. The Weimar Republic was a mess, especially during the depression, and communists and Nazis were eventually fighting for political power. You can define the people in Antifa as mostly communists, but they are not fighting with political motivation or governmental takeover in mind. They are reactive, not proactive. Doesn't make them good people in the slightest, but it certainly shows the many ways why it's illogical to form an equivalency between them and organized communists/Nazis, or an equivalency between our situation and post-WW1 Germany.
@Chicochang, but yes I completely agree that Antifa are wusses compared to anyone fighting in the streets against literal German Nazis haha
@Blue Shirted Guy, I think most people see antifa as the violent branch of the monster that is communism/socialism that is beginning to take over the democratic party. Sanders, Warren, Kumal, similar politicians pandering to BLM and Antifa are the ones with political motivation. Its the “Left” taking over “Liberals”
@Chicochang, I haven't looked into statements of the others, but I know Bernie Sanders came out and condemned Antifa's actions. He said that people have a right to give their two cents without fear of violence and intimidation.
Either way, I think there's still a separation between politicians letting violent groups run around vs politicians organizing violent groups to do their bidding. Antifa is a violent group consisting of communists/socialists, rather than a violent branch of an existing communist/socialist political party. It's more of dumb, violent people locally organizing whenever they see a rally going on. I doubt half of them can even properly define communism, even if they identify as communists
@Blue Shirted Guy, The reason they're called communists and then compared to the SS is because in terms of behavior they do the same things the SS did. They actively seek out others who disagree with them and use violence as a means to silence them. Some dude even got stabbed for "looking like a nazi" because of his haircut. But they're called communists because Antifa's end goal in mind is the destruction of all democratic and capitalist systems and replace it with one that is purely communist all while "punishing" the rich for being rich. They also tend to idolize people such as Lenin and Stalin, seeing them as paragons.
@TheRatMan, "in terms of behavior they do the same things the SS did." I have to stop you right there. Actively seeking out others and using violence to silence them is *not even close* to summarizing all of the atrocities the SS committed. There is absolutely no equivalency. I know about the stabbing, the violence, etc. They are horrible people. They are NOT the SS.
I can't find any statements by their organizations about matters that extreme. They are locally organized and differ from each other worldwide, so I'm not quite sure how you are lumping all of them in as having one cohesive goal. I'm not saying you're wrong or anything, I just legitimately can't find it. I'm open to reading through anything if you know of where I can find what you're talking about.
Cause what you describe is a proactive political organization with an end-goal, while even terrorism and political experts have described Antifa as a reactionary group.
