Fucking NAZIS?! AYFKM

How is "are Nazis OK?" a thing?

This is bullshit. Being racist is not ok. Being sexist is not ok. Being homophobic is NOT FUCKING OK.

And if you are racist, or sexist, or homophobic, etc. AND you decide to do something about it, like go to a fucking Klan rally or post a public rant, then you should get fired.

Free speech isn't freedom from consequences. Our right to free speech is simply a guarantee that the government can't prosecute you for what you say (if you are not inciting violence).

How the fuck is that still news to some folks???

One response so far

    I'm right there with you.

    I think a lot of people (at least this is true in my old home country the safe place in scandinavia) haven't really had to "take a stand" that often and therefore are not used to the idea that "actions have consequences". You can do a lot of things, but that doesn't mean people will agree with you. And if you march under the Nazi flag, I highly doubt that you would be surprised that people react. Surely they couldn't have been _that_ clueless?

    Never mind that the US Senate and Congress (and WH) are showing every day that you can leave decorum somewhere and just be rude "since that's what I think and I am allowed to say anything I want" [like a three year old]. Consequences be damned. I'm a cool rich dude and I don't care about you.

    I would say, you have a right of saying what you want (in US, as long as it's not persecuting someone) - but that also goes with that people might not like, respect or want to be with you afterwards. I am seriously starting to doubt if people have social circles with friends anymore since there are so many who doesn't seem to know a difference between "my personal views that I have" and "my person is going to be associated with this job/image etc".

    I would hope that if someone who works with me at a children's hospital walks next to a Nazi flag* they would be put on leave since the families we treat would be nervous and unsure if they received fair and great care (we have a lot of non-white families, never mind that the whole nazi idea is to kill the weak and sick...).

    *the Nazi flag is the German flag 1930-1944 so I can't get it in my head how these American men can think it's patriotic to want to be another country. it's nuts.
