Who are You Trying to Convince?

 

So there was this:

And if you limited your vile hatred to actual Nazis that would be one thing. Of course, people would then be wondering what you were going on about since there are at most a few thousand such Nazis out of a country of more than 300 million. They actually are a “tiny minority.”  “Flat Earthers” outnumber them by at least a couple of orders of magnitued.  Their numbers are in the ballpark of people who believe The Earth is Hollow and UFOs come from there.  They get more attention from you and yours protesting them than they’d ever get on their own.  As one writer put it (paraphrased), “The pathetic skinheads calling themselves Nazis couldn’t organize a bake sale, let alone the conquest of most of Europe.”  They are meaningless noise, deserving only of ridicule and laughter.

That is, if you’re talking about actual Nazis.

But that’s not what you do. You apply the label “Nazi” or “Fascist” to anyone who disagrees with you. Suggest we should actually enforce our laws including immigration laws? Nazi. Suggest that our immigration laws should be aimed at what’s good for America first and foremost? Nazi. Suggest that maybe our trade policies should be based on furthering American interests and let others do the same for themselves? Nazis. Suggest that free speech is free speech and, yes, even your political opponents have a right to speak? Nazi.

According to you, this young lady is a Nazi:

You’re not pointing out people who want to engage in mass genocide. You are applying the term “Nazi” to people who have any disagreement with your policies and hoping that the cachet will make them seem as bad as the Nazis were. That only works to a very limited point, after which you simply dilute the power of the word itself.

You don’t want just actual Nazis dead. You want your political opponents dead. I don’t care what you call yourself. Your actions define what you are. And those actions are vile.

And look, here are some “Antifa” wags cheering a speech made up entirely of quotes from Hitler:

You may call yourself “Anti Fascist” all you want.  Your actions speak otherwise.  Or perhaps you mean “Anti” in the sense of “Antipasto”–where “Anti” means “preparing the way for”.  Far from being against Fascism you are the Sturmaibtelung leading the way to it, or perhaps you’d prefer the Chjornaya Gvardiya in the lead up to the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia.  Of course, both of those organizations were later purged once they had served their purposes to be replaced with other, more “official” organizations so you have that to look forward to.

But claims like that “This is what we’re fighting” crap?  I know it’s not true.  You know it’s not true (if it were, you would already be in a camp).

So who are you trying to convince?
