Hopefully they don’t get their permit approved.
Whys that? Because its not what you believe in? Those folks are probably saying the same thing whenever whatever ideas you have get put on display as well. So what really separates you from them on a basic level? Not much i imagine.
I base the amount of gravitas I give something on impact over intent, is all. Hand me a petition I'll sign it, put up a candidate I will vote for them etc. but conversationally I just kind of shrug.
But I do legitimately find some protest episodes cringeworthy. Like full on painful to watch. And other things are pretty disturbing. I think this will be the former.
@train in vain you and @blank y'all can't be serious right? These events are held as a celebration of hatred and flat out open bigotry. Straight up (no pun intended) their purpose is to use free speech to promote hate and you calling people who oppose it "left tryhards" says a lot about how you feel on the subject of other people being a little ticked off that nazis are having fucking parades. Don't give them their freedom cause they are not gonna give you yers. There's 2 sides, the right side, and the side that literally has nazis on it. It shouldn't be too difficult to not sit on the fence on this one.
I usually have to explain myself more when it comes to this type of shit. I dont support their cause..or anyones really i exist wayyyy outside that realm. I do support people being able to express whatever bullshit they have rattling around their head though. Real freedom. I dont like fuckin nazis..bunch of god damn idiots..but i also dont like the extremw opposite end of the spectrum either..the fuckin pc police. I vould get very in depth on this i just dont have.time and you probably dont give a shit. Bottom line is..if you get to say your piece so does everyone else for better or worse...now if you wanna go punch a motherfucker in the face for being dumb....
Im not arguing that. Fuck nazis. How many skinheads have YOU physically fought? Im saying if some asshole has a rally then some asshole has a rally. Who gets to decide whats ok to say and what isnt? Thats my issue. Maybe i quoted something i shouldnt have or some shit..i dont know. ✌ im not comin back on this one. Go fight emI think a protest that only exists because there are nazis proudly walking around is a cause you dont have to be part of the pc police to get behind.
This is literally a neo-nazi/alt-right event. Its organizers have been clear they are not just anti-lgbt+ but anti-Semitic, white nationalists. They are jumping on the bandwagon with a similar event in Boston being put on by other known fascists who have been coming up with one ‘cause’ after another to try and instigate PDX-style right wing street violence. If we should have learned one thing about these people it’s not to take them at face value but read critical research on them. Their rallies, whatever they call them are about organizing and recruiting for fascist violence.
There’s nothing festive about these “parades,” which are fronts for far-right groups and anti-gay activists.www.thedailybeast.com
Go fight em.
