Imagine a species surviving world war 2 and the Holocaust then still being pro-nazi. So fucking stupid.

A bad economy and uncertain future make people very afraid. It’s tempting to stick your head in the sand, blame all your problems on a specific demographic, then trust dear leader will punish the people that made you scared.

It’s completely divorced from reality, but reality sucks right now. People are scared. They’re taking the blue pill to feel better and pretend the horror all around them isn’t happening. They won’t max out their credit cards and become homeless. Dear Leader will fix things before that happens.

If this were a recent phenomenon, I would agree with you. But western fascism didn't go away when the good times were rolling. It may have been quieter until recently, but these aren't just scared imbeciles struggling through 21st century inequality.

didn't kill enough Nazis and now they own all the algorithms.

[-] [email protected] 48 points 1 month ago

You can blame all your problems on a specific demographic: the rich.

It's always been a class war.

Food and shelter slowly become unaffordable, mass layoffs as large corporations automate, and the planet itself burns. All to feed the richest human beings who have ever walked the earth with more wealth.

Weekdays crushing the hopes and dreams of everyone on earth. Weekends at Epstein’s island. Monsters in human form.

you think they dont do the crushing from their phones at pedo island?

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

well, that escalated quickly. :,-(

In Germany, at least, those people aren't even worried about the real issues, like climate change, but about made-up issues like the green party destroying our economy (they're not), immigrants raping women left and right (they aren't) and that we aren't using nuclear energy anymore and are relying more and more on renewables (it's not causing any issues and pushing down energy price)

you literally described fascism

[-] Soup 12 points 1 month ago

I dunno, when I get worried about stability the last thing I want to do is start attacking other people and creating even more enemies. I get that it’s not so simple and not so instantaneous a choice, but still.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

they care about certainty more than truth, so theres always a bit if disconnect.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

needing certainty more than truth is pathological as fuck.

Imagine being so filled with hate that you sympathize with Nazis.

I can’t.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

They don't sympathize with nazis. They see fascism as a necessary evil to preserve their power, which they value more than even the continuity of the species or the well-being of their descendants.

It's like the One Ring, you can argue you'll use it ethically or to do good, but ultimately it means employing Ringwraiths to take care of those who might stop you.

[-] FlyingSquid 1 points 1 month ago

That kind of feels like a distinction without a difference.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Read it this way: They don't sympathize with Nazis, rather they are Nazis. More accurately, they're what drives fascist movements of autocracy and genocide into popularity. They're not just on the inside, but at the heart.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

nor I.

and I'm really angry, so clearly it takes more than hate.

[-] psycho_driver 33 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Less than 100 years. It's pathetic. Bring on the nuclear winter.

[-] UnderpantsWeevil 8 points 1 month ago

You're not getting out of climate change that easily.

[-] FlyingSquid 2 points 1 month ago

Yellowstone supervolcano eruption?

[-] UnderpantsWeevil 2 points 1 month ago

If we're going to carve it up and sell it off to private interests, might as well.

[-] [email protected] 30 points 1 month ago

Eh, I live in the US where people still pine for the fucking confederacy because they love slavery and racism. Of course people are gonna keep the nazi hate machine going.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

didn't kill enough of em, I'm telling you. always the mistake.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

It's not like antisemitism prevented people from supporting the NSDAP (in many cases the opposite). Sure, when they were elected they didn't know what to do with Jews yet, but antisemitism was one of the pillars of their philosophy (if the people are unhappy you have to take responsibility or simply point at someone and say "they are responsible, it's their fault") and antisemitism has existed since forever. (Of course there were not only Jews in concentration camps but they were initially made for them).

And sadly antisemitism still exists today in many areas of the world.

[-] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

how fucked is it that my first thought on seeing that word was 'ugh more hezbarah bullshit' before remembering this is a thread about the other Nazis. fuck, they've denatured the word antisemitism.

[-] Stovetop 4 points 1 month ago

Guess what they say is true: times change, people don't.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Its horrifying when you look at the election results in Germany how many are voting for the so called Afd.

They are all fascists directly from the book and a leader of a county party of the AfD. He regularly uses Methpors from the NS Regime. You can call him a fascist on the street without it being as that is a fact according to a court.

And still, they got 10% in the last generall election 2021.
