Neo Nazi America a step closer

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:07 pm

A US congressman has introduced a bill aimed at making it illegal to protest against fascists and neo-Nazis. Anti-fascist protesters could face 15 year jail terms under the proposed law.

This is frightening, disgusting shit, America.

The bill, introduced by Republican Representative Dan Donovan, imposes penalties on anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates” another person while wearing a mask or disguise.
Out of curiosity, which part of that do you disagree with?

I object to the title of the bill, which outright targets anti-fascists specifically.

Frankly I also don't see anything wrong with threatening or intimidating fascists and Nazis. We intimidated the hell out of them between 1939 and 1945 and it was generally considered a decent and necessary thing.

Antifa's definition of fascism is disturbingly wide, though. I recall them wearing masks and putting on a very intimidating display at a Jacob Reese Mogg event at UWE university. That's not anti fascism, that's anti democracy.

Yes, the title is poor, but I struggle to find fault with the content. I don't want a bunch of thugs carrying out a far left version of McCarthyism. Hopefully it will be used to crack down on the lunatic wing of both sides of the spectrum.

1st amendment rights are still somewhat protected. Also the definition of a facist is very very broad now

I just want to break down the component nature of your comment here quickly.

Component 1 - Personal attack against Jamie T.
Component 2 - Whataboutism

Why did you make this comment? I'm genuinely curious. You don't discuss the article or engage with the on going discussion so I'm struggling to understand what motivated you to post this...

Was that meant to be:

- Shoo Flea. Be gone.
- Shoo, flee, be gone.
- Shoo. Flee. Be gone.
- Shoe Flea be gone.

Because 'Shoo flee.' Makes no sense at all.

"Because "shoo flee" makes no sense at all"
It was posted by sweetypie ssssorrennn. Why do you expect it to be logical or rational ? That expectation, imho, also makes little sense. If you want any reasonable degree of rationality, or logic, or wisdom in posts you read, then might I suggest that you read more posts from Octavious and​ less from sweetypie ssssorrennn. Any fool knows that even posts from Devlishly Dangerous Dargargoyle or Dipbro Brainbomb, even Daffy old fuddy duddy MajorMitchell make more sense than those from sweetypie ssssorrennn

Shoe fleas ? Do fleas in flea circuses require shoes ? I heard a line in the movie "Hippopotamus" ( based on a Stephen Fry novel ) that indicated that male fleas of a certain type of flea had an exceptionally long penis with respect to body size & could therefore be regarded as "well hung" in the common vernacular. So if one of those male fleas had impressive shoes he might be regarded as being "both well hung and well shod"

Antifa's biggest crime is that their antics make people like Milo (troll - no opinion of value, I feel dumber after listening to him), Stephan "Bell Curve" Molyneux and the rest of the far-right motley crew sound like the rational and reasonable ones. Antifa are idiots.
