    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.

        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.

        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)

        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.

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

      I can’t.

        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.

          That kind of feels like a distinction without a difference.

            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.

      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.

      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.
