    [–] US Army destroys Nazi symbols at Nuremberg Stadium, 25 April, 1945. imnotpetersinger 48 points ago in videos

    There are various degrees of political. This isn't directly political like, say, a campaign ad or YouTube rant about a politician. It's more indirectly relevant to current events. Clearly what happened today is part of the causal chain of events that lead me to post this. But the same video could be posted any other time and not be seen as overtly political. That's the difference between this video and a campaign ad or YouTube political rant, both of which would always be deleted.

    Yeah okay, I'm sure the counter-protesters were literally all communists, right? Lots of ANTIFA, sure, but you don't have to be a radical leftist to protest Nazis. In any case, suppose the dead woman was a communist. That's a human being who could have been reasoned into a more rational political worldview with reason, love and patience. But now that person is dead. Communist or not, of course I'm angry. Can only hope someone doesn't kill you for what you believe, because there's hope for you too.

    Why would you not credit the artist? You expose their work to thousands and can't be arsed to give credit. What is your excuse?

    If I wanted to straight up call him stupid I would have said "Joe is fucking stupid." On the other hand, "world's smartest, highest functioning idiot" is very clearly cheeky, playful, tongue in cheek writing. Don't be Mad Online because you can't pick up on cues that are obvious to nearly everyone else.

    "World's smartest, highest functioning idiot" is not an oxymoron. "Smartest" and "highest functioning" both modify "idiot" and they're rough synonyms. Not an oxymoron. If taken literally, it just means that he's the smartest idiot of all the idiots. But I didn't mean it literally anyway and I'm not literally calling him an idiot. It's tongue in cheek writing. See the edit in the OP.

    All of that is consistent with what I said. You shouldn't interpret "world's smartest, highest functioning idiot" as me seriously calling him a literal idiot. I think most people who read that will understand the tongue in cheek, only half-serious nature of the comment.
