There’s been a hatred shortage in America for a while, so liberals have been manufacturing villains for a while – Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and really any other white guy they can call a white supremacist - without evidence. Since the larping Nazis showed up in Charlottesville last week, no one has been happier than the left.
After all, they’ve been harping on about white supremacism and covert Nazis for years while anyone with a brain has rolled their eyes and went on doing their jobs, raising their kids, and otherwise contributing to society. So when 14 guys show up with tiki torches saying they won’t be replaced by Jews, imagine the left’s collective happiness when they finally got to bludgeon Trump and the right with the fact that “hey! I told you there are Nazis.”
No one, right or left cares about the Nazis and their ideas. Although the modern American liberals sure show love for many of the things that Nazis did – central control of everything, limiting of free speech, open bigotry towards certain groups (“you’re a fucking white male!”), scapegoating groups of people for their country’s problems, but that’s not important for now.
I just want to look at one argument I keep seeing pop up from the left in response to when Trump did what he does best which is bluntly tell the obvious and unbearable truth when he schooled the media and told them there were some good, normal people who just showed up to protest the removal of a statue. Who knows what really happened down south. Maybe a bunch of normal conservatives showed up and protested along the side, opting to skip out on the tiki torch-lit Nazi chants. Maybe some left and let the cause they care about fall apart. Maybe some stuck around because they really did care about the statue and free speech. The argument liberals are throwing out is important though, because if you “play it through,” the result would be truly stupid.
It goes something like “there are no good people who would march with Nazis,” or “no matter what you care about the cause, once the Nazis show up, you have to leave and do it on a different day.”
Of course they have no self-awareness and won’t hold themselves to the same standard – when Antifa shows up to fight fascist “Nazis” like Ben Shapiro (a Jew who is endlessly hounded by the alt-right), the rest of the everyday progressives aren’t expected to clear out or forever be tied to Antifa – a domestic terror organization who uses violence to oppress people. A typical, almost boring, double standard at this point.
But more importantly, this terrific blunder in thinking gives control of our country’s dialogue to the neo-Nazis and the KKK. In fact, any time they want to shut down debate, they just need to put on their cosplay costumes, dust off some old chants about the Jews and show up. And once this is established, even a liberal could go grab a Nazi flag and show up to a “lower my taxes” rally and force the crowd to disassemble and protest another day – assuming the “Nazis” don’t just show up again. Fingers crossed, right guys!?!
So as per usual, the liberal hive brain sucks. We can’t yield the floor every time the larping neo-Nazis can get a day off from the pizza shop and want to show up looking for a fight. Conversely, you liberals shouldn’t be sent home every time someone comes to your 30 dollar per hour minimum wage protests rocking the Hammer and Sickle.
The country needs to go back to the time before Trump, when the media and the left gave 0 thought to Nazis or the KKK because they didn’t matter. The only thing that can make them matter is if you continually, and unequivocally falsely, try to tie them to Trump hoping that they will weigh him down enough to make way for a true reformer like Hillary Clinton (hahahahahahaha
