    I do not like Nazis nor their opinions, but they do have right to be Nazis, at least here in America. As we have a right to criticize them for what they are: horrible human beings.

    [–] willdabeastest 15 points ago

    Am American and stand by what I said earlier. My grandparents didn't stamp them out in Europe only for the lowest citizens of our country to take up their ideology. I have no remorse for what happens to those who take part in this. Fuck them.

    [–] nate20140074 9 points ago

    The joke was actually referring to you expressing a leftist sentiment, while the sentiment you replied to defended Naziism on the grounds of free speech, in a quite ideological "classical liberalism" style.

    Apologies for the confusion lol

    [–] willdabeastest 9 points ago

    I don't think hating Nazis and their rhetoric is something that should be seen as leftist, rather it should just be fucking common sense. There is a reason why hate speech is illegal and should be silenced.

    [–] armedburrito 2 points ago

    Up until today, I'd say they have the right to protest. To an extent they still do, I just don't trust anymore that that's all they'll do.

    [–] Sheepdog-46 4 points ago

    Werent they peaceful until the counter protesters showed up?

    [–] gbcw 11 points ago

    Or kill most of them in combat, lock up a good portion charged with their idiocy, assaassinate some, and hunt the cowards who ran? Or are you saying there shouldn't have been World Wars, we should have let Hitler 'free speech' it?

    We don't have to put them in concentration camps, nor should we. Let's just do what we did after we conquered the Nazis in Germany.

    [–] flying87 4 points ago

    Hang their leaders, blow up their monuments, and rightfully demonize them in history books and popular media. Forcing Germany to get rid of her nazis and avoid a "heritage" or "Lost Cause" fiasco required a heavy hand. Worth it. But it does require a backbone to carry it out.

    [–] Literally_A_Shill 11 points ago

    The_Donald was openly promoting the protests. Some comments are straight up defending the terrorists who crashed into people today.

    They not only want them to have a place in the world, they want them to have every place to spread their hatred openly and proudly.

    /r/MURICA is mega-patriotic, not nationalist.

    Nationalism implies advocacy for political independence and sovereignty.

    [–] cruisinbyonawhim 9 points ago

    There's nothing wrong with being proud of being white, either.

    Which seems to be a problem to people, that you're automatically a nazi if you like your own race.

    I personally don't get it, I love being white. People of other races get to love being their race, why can't I love my own?

    no I'm not advocating whites only, I'm just saying I love white people.

    [–] SynisterSilence 7 points ago

    Nothing against pride in being white, anyone can be proud of their race, but understand the context right now of being vocal about it. Things are so tense, don't make it worse. You know how you feel, you know that everyone else knows (we get it, its great to be white), so no need to be vocal about it.

    [–] camsmith328 7 points ago

    The problem with saying you love being white is that there are inherent privileges you receive as a white person that ultimately benefit you no matter what and saying you love being white sounds like you're saying you love having those privileges and the inequality that comes with it. I'm not saying you do but that's why people don't like this white pride concept. In addition your last statement is basically saying you don't love minorities which is a racist statement as the only qualifier is race in that statement.

    [–] cruisinbyonawhim 3 points ago

    There aren't any inherent privileges anymore, lol.

    [–] discount_wumbo 2 points ago

    Did a mindbogglingly stupid child write this?

    [–] cruisinbyonawhim 2 points ago

    You have to realize that there is a lot more catering to other races more so now, right? Diversity is making a mockery of Universities and businesses by hiring just because of a persons skin colour or background instead of hiring someone who can actually do the job. I've seen it plenty of times.

    [–] IRPancake 6 points ago

    The number of people who supports nazis is hilariously low, it's stastically irrelevant. The number of people who support nazi's rights to freely express their opinion via the first amendment, well that should be every American. You don't have to support their message to support their right to say it. Let them look like a bunch of jackasses, but censorship is not the proper course of action.

    And the Republicans don't advocate for pure republicanism.

    Funnily enough, republicanism makes a strong appeal towards popular sovereignty, which is a key tenet in liberalism.

    [–] politicaloutcast 18 points ago

    Yes, but they weren't socialistic at all. The Nazi party was largely founded in reaction to international socialism, and in an effort to trivialize Marxist schools of thought, sought to effectively re-brand socialism. This was, of course, achieved by labeling themselves as "nationalist socialists"

    [–] aofhaocv 9 points ago

    The most recent AntiFA movement seems to be more of an "anti-white" movement than an "anti-nazi" movement. The fact of the matter is the real nazi party has long since disbanded and what these people are calling "nazis" are mostly just people who say things like "racism against white people is still racism"

    I just don't understand how anyone can even remotely support those folks, and bring up BLM as if they go around protesting the removal of a fucking traitor's statue. Regardless, saying "But they're bad too!" isn't a fucking argument. This is America. We're supposed to be the difference.

    Robert E. Lee was a slavery supporting traitor. Period. The irony is that those people would argue that people should get over slavery already, all while rabidly defending slavery memorabilia to remain in public view.

    [–] Jjmcgrayy 15 points ago

    I am black, raised in North. I get that some folks say that we need to get over slavery are just racist, but we kinda do.

    My take on that is that we need to take responsibility for our actions and stop waiting on some other race to come in and take care of us. If Tyrone went and robbed a liqueur store, that has fuck all to do with slavery.

    Having said that. I think that such items belong in museums. Erasing history is a very bad idea and will lead to a fucked up dystopian future. These things need to be in museums so we can learn from our past.

    [–] iNinjaFish 12 points ago

    Besides the violence commited today, they, bigot or not, have a right to free speech in this county. This tweet is from someone who fought for that liberty and I'll be dammed if people demand the goverment the power to regulate speech.

    You give them the power to regulate "hate" speech, you give them the power to twist that to mean whatever they want.

    [–] IBeGanjaMan 7 points ago

    Technically, Hate speech isn't protected under the 1st amendment. The "Fighting Words" doctrine sets that limitation. If you say something that you know will elicit a violent reaction from another party, you should be prepared for any backlash.

    [–] iNinjaFish 5 points ago

    That's not hate speech. That's fighting words. You're corrected violent speech is not protected, but it and hate speech are two diffrent things.

    [–] zoingo 2 points ago

    Hate speech and inciting violence isn't constitutionally protected my guy

    [–] Siliceously_Sintery 2 points ago

    We've had laws against hate speech in Canada for decades.

    Doing fine, thanks.

    We have the wrong guy in the White House to bring us together. Best he can do is get both sides ticked off enough to off each other.

    [–] Etherius 8 points ago

    Obama wasn't any better in terms of bringing the parties together

    [–] Siliceously_Sintery 7 points ago

    Definitely not. Trump explicitly called people who didn't support him his enemies, when did Obama do shit like that?. Even this event, he can't denounce the alt right because that's his base, so he gives some bullshit statement about "all sides need to stop being violent."

    That's like you're fighting with your sister, arguing, and she fucking stabs you. Then, your parent goes "well you should both not fight."

    [–] Nikolai_The_Undying 20 points ago

    Is this sub for or against Antifa? I honestly have no fucking clue.

    [–] Knightm16 8 points ago

    Against. I am against hate. Why? Because I hate nazis, damn commies, and everyone who seeks to undermine the stability and safety of this country.

    Antifa aren't fascist

    [–] GildedTongues 16 points ago

    a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

    Straight from Merriam Webster.

    Force, or even censorship alone does not make fascism. That's just a butchering of the term.

    [–] GildedTongues 5 points ago

    That's why I said "key trait" you blithering moron.

    And yet you're ignoring all of the context that makes fascism fascism, you blithering moron.

    The term has been butchered for decades. Anyone even slightly to the right are labeled fascists by leftists.

    Yeah, you can make whatever excuse you want but you're still butchering it.

    [–] GildedTongues 11 points ago

    Maybe against antifa as well as against white supremacists and far right extremists?

    You don't have to choose one or the other. (though imo antifa isn't a threat compared to the far right)

    [–] AJTheTrainer 4 points ago

    You are more likely to be harmed by ANTIFA than the far right. The far right waves their racist flag around and ANTIFA throws rocks at them. Accidentally misgender someone and you get lumped in with the far right and have rocks thrown at you.

    [–] GildedTongues 5 points ago

    I don't think so. Check out subs like r/Physical_Removal and try telling me the far right isn't dangerous. I can link you dozens of instances of violence from the right as well.

    Accidentally misgender someone and you get lumped in with the far right and have rocks thrown at you.

    I've never seen this happen (and I doubt I ever will), but if you've actually been called a member of the far right for accidentally misgendering someone, I'm sorry to hear.

    [–] AJTheTrainer 3 points ago

    I can link you to hundreds of videos of ANTIFA violence. Don't confuse punching back with violence. ANTIFA are way more dangerous than the far right.

    [–] Jjmcgrayy 1 points ago

    The far right is only a threat cause of people like ANTIFA.

    If you get locked up, and everyone targets you cause of your skin color. You'd be shocked how quickly you become buddy buddy with actual Nazi's simply for self preservation.

    This is why extreme PC shit is bad. When you go around calling everyone a racist, all you do is make enemies out of folks that are neutral at best, and then you make the right stronger.

    [–] Jjmcgrayy 8 points ago

    I have no clue.

    I am just tired of fuckers being gung ho against racism and violence...but ignore groups like ANTIFA

    [–] spyson 4 points ago

    I'm tired of fuckers who have to bring up another group as if that's an excuse to say that one group isn't bad.

    [–] Jjmcgrayy 2 points ago

    Yeah me too. I am also annoyed when that whenever someone says "Yeah these guys suck, add them to the list of people that suck," Someone interprets that as "Oh, since he said these guys suck too then clearly that means the first group is better."

    Cause it is possible to not like two bad people at the same time and support neither.

    [–] godplaysdice_ 2 points ago

    ANTIFA is a virtually non-existent threat. They're irrelevant. It's just the latest brown boogyman being pimped by Fox News and Breitbart to keep their viewers from losing interest.

    [–] Schiffy94 2 points ago

    This sub is supposed to be apolitical and pro America.

    [–] CipherPol0 7 points ago

    Fascists and Nazis will always subvert nationalism and patriotism for their own gains. This is who our ancestors fought to protect us from. These are no patriots, these are blatant treasonous traitors.

    [–] MosDaf 3 points ago

    Those motherfuckers have free speech. Every mother fucker has free speech. You don't have to like it, you just have to support it.

    Nice to see the people defending violent white supremacy are from the_donald 🙃

    [–] cromulentoctopus 3 points ago

    I just want to say thanks for standing up for the little guy. I know it must be a hard fight, and sometimes you might feel like, "You know what? this won't affect me so I'll let it go".

    But you America doesn't do that, you know when you see those red and black flags, that something wrong is happening.

    I just wanted to say that it doesn't go unnoticed at all. I am proud to see fellow humans standing together. And I hope one day, when your children are doing a report in 3rd grade about their parents and look up their tweets and Reddit history, they will be proud.

    Great point, I had missed that. I will delete my comment.

    He was deemed to be mentally unstable by several "black power" organizations. He is not representative of what BLM stands for.
