We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
The Declaration of Independence 1776
I really dislike having to write this post but we’ve reached a point where our culture and society have decayed for far that unfortunately this is necessary.
The Following things / groups are Bad
Neo Nazis/Nazism: Nazism (National Socialism) is bad because its philosophy restricts freedom, oppresses people, considered them subservient to the state, and justifies violence and murder against those who disagree with it. Nazis themselves are bad because they espoused and carried out said violence, murder and oppression. Modern Neo-Nazis despite their insignificant numbers in American, are in one respect even worse than actual Nazis because they still espouse the Nazi philosophy even after it had been demonstrated that said philosophy when tried leads to mass murder, massive oppression and one of the most destructive wars in the history of the world.
Communism/Communists: Communists (another branch of socialism) is bad because it advocate a philosophy that restricts freedom of the individual, considers them subservient to the state and justifies oppression and murder against foes (and even friends) by defining them as “counter revolution enemies of the state”. The worst thing about modern western Communists and their defenders, particularly in academia and media of which there are surprisingly many, is they continue to support and defend this philosophy even though its implementation as demonstrated in country after country, has led to the mass murder of people in numbers that make the Nazi’s look like a bunch of pikers and that’s not even considering those imprisoned for political reasons and oppressed in other ways.
Klu Klux Klan/White Supremacists: the KKK is bad because it advances a philosophy that elevates people based on race over others based on race rather than actions or merit. They furthermore co-ops Christian symbolism which specifically states the equality of all people before God for the advancement of this goal. Furthermore the KKK is bad because they have a recorded history of targeted terrorism and violence and dispensing extrajudicial “justice” and murder to enforce this philosophy. While the modern Neo-Nazis modern Klansmen/white supremacists are a relatively insignificant number of people, they are also guilty of embracing a philosophy that has already been demonstrated as being evil and immoral and contrary to rights and freedom.
ANTIFA: ANTIFA is bad because while they claim to be anti-fascists they are in fact violent fascists who advocate and practice violence, intimidation and vandalism to restrict the rights of people to peaceably assemble and exercise their rights as individuals and they also make common cause with Communists above when their targets dovetail. Furthermore they do this even if said people or groups have followed all the legal requirements to peacefully assemble and target the police when they are used to. Finally they calumny any voter or group that supports the current administration lumping them in with Nazis and White supremacists to justify violence against them as moral and just. The fact that neither the media or the professional left chooses condemn them either due to fear or the fact that they target voters that they dislike doesn’t make them any less bad.
Political Violence: Political violence is bad because it is used to restrict the speech and actions of individuals and groups for the sake of intimidation and control. Said violence, even if directed against groups that are bad or committed by groups one has common cause with is unacceptable because it eliminates the free exchange of ideas and causes people to self censor out of fear of said violence. Nor does the directing of such violence toward property rather than individuals make it any less acceptable or justifiable.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A condemnation of political violence is not the same as precluding self-defense when targeted by said violence.
The following thing is good
The First Amendment: The first amendment is good because it guarantees people the right to freely speak, assemble, worship in the way they see fit and to freely report and comment on events. It provides the maximum amount of freedom to not only live and think the way they see fit but to freely comment and discuss events and opinions concerning not only philosophy but the actions of local state and federal government in the public square. While it allows the freedom to advance fringe philosophies even if they are bad (see above) it freely allows such speech to be countered by more speech both publicly. It is one of the cornerstones of the freest society in history and the envy of people around the world.
So the basic rundown
KKK/White Supremacists BAD!
Political Violence BAD!
Free Speech and First Amendment Rights GOOD!
For any American this list should be a no brainer and it can be summed up in a single image.
Now in fairness as an american you, of course, have the right to disagree with this list and critique it. In accordance with my own rights I submit and suggest if you are unable to agree with this entire list without hesitation, you should be excluded from any list of decent Americans.
Or put simply, if you can’t call Nazis,Communists, the KKK and ANTIFA out the problem isn’t America or anyone else, it’s you.
