Remember kids, historically, Americans are known for punching nazis, not being them.
@Commander Peanuts, I gotta be honest I always wonder what the Americans would have done if the concentration camps were full of blacks instead of Jews.
@Dimir FTW, oh we know what would happen Roosevelt filled one up here in the US with Japanese, the majority of who were US citizens. Sadly no one really objected, even the Supreme Court said it was fine. We weren’t over there to stop the camps we just didn’t want a superpower ruling all of Europe. So ‘who’ was in the camps wasn’t the point.
@Commander Peanuts, not to mention, the blues brothers ran a group of them over in the movie and everyone cheered
@Commander Peanuts, what do you mean? America had a lot of socialists around this time. They saw fascism as the American socialism. An effective way to move the country forward. FDR had a mixed relationship with Hitler, being that he kind of muddled about, helping the nazis get cheaper goods.
It's not all sunshine and rainbows or doom and gloom. No one at that time knew what Hitler wanted to do. Concentration camps at that time where myths, something that hadn't got discovered until after WW2.
The night of broken glass finally got the US to stop their tacit support of the Nazis, but at that point it'd be four more years before the US went to war.
Here's some ref for fdr's reaction to the nazis. Hind sight's 2020, I don't blame him as much as blaming his lack of a spine.
@That one lurker, what? Are you referring to that other dude's comment? I didn't mention a specific time or FDR or anything.
@Commander Peanuts, a mix, you can't tag two people. But FDR was prez at the time. So it needed to be said in my comment here. I'll need to ping the other guy.
@Dimir FTW, qmericans didn't much like jews back then either.... no one did. Frankly speaking the nazis views werent all that out of the ordinary back in the day. What made their views special is that they turned killing minorities into an industry. in the 1940s litterally everyone was racist.
@Commander Peanuts, we've also had a few instances of slavery not just with black people but we used to have mostly Chinese immigrants work on our railroads out west. We would throw them into caves and pretty much blow them up.
@Pat Myckok, I hate Illinois Nazis
@Dr Kriegerstein, and don’t forget what happened to the natives but just don’t tell a black person this cause I had this conversation with a black guy a few times and they all said I was racist and that nobody suffered other then their ppl which would be racist but I think they had a pass for some reason
@bobbylupo, don’t tell a African American what happened to Native Americans? What are you trying to play the game, “who suffered more?”
@Commander Peanuts, Yes we are but we have to be careful who we are calling calling Nazis today. The real Nazis are long gone, now people use that term to legitimize their violence or hatred towards whoever they view as their enemy. This rhetoric is exactly why the sides are so divided today.
@Zorb, I’m wasn’t playing the game but apparently someone was cause he said natives didn’t suffer like we did we were taken from our home. I was like they had their whole country taken from them but according to him that was nothing
@Dimir FTW, You know black people were rounded up in concentration camps same as the Jews right? There just weren’t as many in Europe
@bobbylupo, it's not like white people took blacks from their homes either. They were bought from the rulers of the African countries and brought over. It was from one slave to another. Blood diamonds to farms. Yes both are sh!t. But I would have rather been on a farm with a shack and some food instead of in a mine with nothing until I fell over and died from exhaustion then disposed of and replaced.
@Dimir FTW, The Nazi's actually looked at American internment camps of Native Americans as inspiration for their concentration camps.
@BigJohnson86, they were “rounded up” in Africa mostly, sold distributively. Most slaves were sold by other blacks. We can point fingers all day, but the problem is, we (America) are ignoring the heroes that have righted the wrong (Lincoln, MLK, Rosa Parks, etc.), and instead are somehow praising the sinful who now rule 2/3 branches of government. (Friendly reminder the KKK was the “military organization” of the Democratic Party). Downvote if you like, but projection speaks for itself through a blinding willingness
@bobbylupo, oh can't tell any race about it. Look maybe if other people got their act together they could be on top and oppress, just white people are the best at it.
@The Silly Band, as u can see u get downvoted simply for writing facts because as we know facts r hate speech
Sure. But if you call everyone that disagrees with you “racist” or “white supremacist” or anything like that then all you’re doing is driving people further apart.
@big freedom, or calling people fascists... I had a friend of like 10 years just stop talking to me in person and unfriend me on facebook, told me I was becoming to fascist over the years...
I'm like I literally hate big goverment and think people should have lots of individual freedoms, how on earth could i be a fascists who literally want the opposite of that?
It really amounts to the boy crying wolf... seems everyone forgot that moral lesson... and now like the kid who cries wolf when there is none, they actually hurt people when there is a real wolf there.
@phalcon , exactly. Call everyone “fascist” and it loses all of its power to fight actual fascists. Call everyone “racist” and it gives cover to actual racists.
The whole thing has gotten ridiculous. The age of hyperbole where everyone and everything is the MOST _____ EVER!!!
@big freedom, some are trying to change definitions. When I was a kid, one of 2 white kids in a mostly black southern school, I was taught racism meant pre-judging someone based on their skin color. Nowadays it seems that if you dont wholeheartedly agree with all Leftist dogma...racist. They’re stretching the defintion really thin.
@Who Nose, exactly, I'm an 80/90s kids. Being racist meant judging somene, or assuming someoen will be / act a certain way because of the color or their skin.
And very much now, unless you agree with left wing ideology on things, than you are a, racist.
For example, I'd you identify a problem in a black community example, high murder rate compare to other ethnicities (Eg white on white, Asian on Asian)
Just point that fact out will have someone calling you a racist..
And heaven forbid you say something like the reason for that problem is from within their own communities... Racist... Even worse... If you suggest the solution needs to come from within those communities, you're a Nazi fascist skinhead racist..
But unless you say, those issues are white man's fault, and so white man needs to fix pay for it... You wont go unscaved...
Unfortunately this, dishonest, either ignorantly, delusional or intentially lying... Actually creates more problems than it will solve.
I liked twisted tea before it was popular and now I'm super pissed it's sold out everywhere rn
@Tentastic, same here lol
They’re already afraid. That’s why they’re racist.
@I Are Lebo, actually, it is a major mistake to think that most racism comes from a place of fear. My experience with racists is they usually have malice and distain for the out group they’re bigoted against.
@Hot Coffee, or if one group is say more violent than another group, they assume its inherently that way because of race traits, opposed to just individuals behaving badly giving the rest a bad name.
Not much due to fear.
@Hot Coffee, IMO it’s all of those factors that are based in insecurity. A lot of the current generation of racists are that way because they grew up believing they were better than people who are different, and are resentful that being accepting of others is the new norm. They’re insecure because they don’t have people to look down on without bigotry.
@Spetsnaz , I disagree. I have never met an insecure bigot. They’re usually very secure in their opinions. I have never met a bigot that was apologetic about their bigotry.
@Hot Coffee, people who are insecure don’t usually come out and day that their insecure, and they will not act like it either, they have fake bravado and act with a certainty made up of ignorance. Also there is different between insecurity and being secure in your opinions. They have those opinions to provide explanation for their feeling and to cover up their insecurities.
@Hot Coffee, at its core, it’s always about fear. That malice comes from fear. Not necessarily fear of violence, but fear of losing their perceived superiority. Hatred and fear go hand in hand, even when the fear is unacknowledged.
Also, there are tons of insecure bigots out there. They’re the intersectional ‘allies’ that are always the first ones to jump on the cancel bandwagon and tend to be the virtue signalling douches calling out racism absolutely everywhere. They’re bigots who hide their bigotry behind compassion and insecurity.
@I Are Lebo, interesting perspective, though I’m still not convinced that fear is always the root of bigotry. You are right about the intersectional ‘allies’ but still think conceit, without fear, is often the driving force behind bigotry.
@I Are Lebo, I can’t argue with you on this one!
@I Are Lebo, Leftist ideology often says that those who exhibit racism, violence, and even humor do it from a place of fear. In some cases this may be true, but it’s not usually the case. Most racism is because they see others as less than them, like a bug or animal. Most violence is because people want control and it feels good to be in charge. Most humor comes from wanting to relate in a surprising yet joyful manner.
In psychology, they promote the fear aspect more often because many broken people do operate out of fear, and going that route fixes their problems. But the average people don’t exhibit these behaviors from fear, it’s just the innate desire to control and feel good. Animalistic.
@Child Slapper, I don’t know that I agree. I’m sure there plenty of quiet racists who look down on people of a particular race, but the violent ones who actively subjugate, those are doing so out of fear. Fear that if those deemed subhuman gain any power, they’ll either become competitors, or for the racial purist mindset, they’ll corrupt the gene pool.
It’s still fear that fuels the hate. It doesn’t fuel condescension or superiority, but fear is what’s needed to take that to the point of oppression.
@I Are Lebo, I suppose you make a valid point. I suppose racists that act falls under a different category than the majority of racists. Makes me wonder.... I’ll look into it. Thanks!
Damn that’s... twisted
Regardless of belief or option. You do not when people over by beating them. You just force them to get quite and angry. Oppression never works. Let the f@ckin retard say the n-word then laugh at his face. Then ask the f@cker if he wants to get a beer. Hate makes Hate, so make Hate fear isolation.
Sure that may mean growing the f@ck up and not getting hurt by little sissy words anymore. But hey, what do I know I'm a potato munching patty that works IT like a troglodyte. Making me the pastyist mother f@cker you'd ever see.
I can only say this cause race hasn't been made an issue for me. Cause life's to short to let some shaved headed numbnutts tell you that you're beneath him. If that f@ckers right then he wouldn't have to say it. Stand tall and assert your equality. Laugh him off and walk away or appeal to his humanity. Cause beating him will make you no better then him.
@That one lurker, I agree. I feel like every supremacist group has had a huge uptick in new memberships, and they're using this incident at their recruiting centers.
@That one lurker, yeah people never seem to learn that you won't put a fire out by fanning the flames lol
@Diskum, quick, prove the racist right by treating them subhumanely. That will stop racist from growing a new klan. Smooth brains
@That one lurker, the irish suffered quite a bit but nobody talks about it because nobody knows about it because we don’t cry about insignificant things such as ppl being mean to us we just work harder and earn respect because that what u do u earn it nobody just gives it to u and u definitely don’t get it by doing to someone else what u hate being done to u
I have a theory about who is downvoting this...
@seib19, lemme guess... it’s people that disagree with you politically, therefore they must be “racist”.
Did I get it?
@big freedom, I must have missed the political part of the picture.
@seib19, people who think its wrong to use physical violence to solve problems?
@big freedom, how is this at all political?
@Yukimura, the kkk isn’t political? Dems Calling everyone to the right of Clinton racist... Are you serious?
@Its freaken Toasty , see above. How is this not political?
@big freedom, It's not political until somebody makes it political. I don't care what a KKK member's political beliefs are.
@Yukimura, sure ya don’t.
@big freedom, I was referring to the fact that this is a depiction of a klan member being beaten with a can of twisted tea, meaning the people who downvoted approve of the klan or something similar. 🥴
27 people are racist lol
