Man, that's a post that just keeps on giving.

Hating communism and Nazism, ignoring that a significant portion of World War II was communists fighting Nazis.

Hating both fascism AND Antifa because, uh?

And of course, being a white supremacist without a shred of self-awareness.

I don't know the history, but from Wikipedia:

Wikipedia posted:

Musk then founded X.com, an online bank. It merged with Confinity in 2000, which had launched PayPal the previous year and was subsequently bought by eBay for $1.5 billion in October 2002.

So, Elon's company was bought by the company that already had created PayPal? And they are crediting the creation of PayPal to Elon?

Much like how they credit the creation of Tesla to Elon when he just threw cash at them until he became the boss.

Those three tend to go together. "Antifa are the actual nazis" is a very common refrain among a certain group of people.

That's always been my go to example for trying to understand how a nazi thinks. Just looking at a calm street with mothers walking around with kids in strollers, kids riding past on bicycles, and dudes haggling over oranges or whatever, and being absolutely convinced that every one of these brown people are out to kill you.

Okay, here's the original video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pfyzzvb7hg

There's a ton of white people all walking around without a care and the only people staring at him are the ones who are clearly reacting to him filming them for no reason. Everything is clean and there's not a single sign of crime or decay anywhere. It's literally him walking into a completely normal part of a first world city and cringing in terror at people who aren't white daring to exist nearby.

Literally white women walking in shorts and no head covering right in front of his camera as he's describing these horrible "no-go" zones. Unbelievable.

maybe, but it's invigorating to feel like you have a handle on why the world is so bad, what could be done about it, and most importantly of all, whose suffering can be happily ignored. these are things every political stance offers.

I just looked at the bottom videoís title which is slightly obscured on Awful App, and thought it said ďsocial media is loving people upĒ and thought yeah, I actually agree with that.

Or you could just be Lovecraft and be cripplingly afraid of everything slightly different from you and even of your own internal perception of the world, but deal with it by giving your cat a super racist name and ranting about Jews until your Jewish wife divorces you.

The context here was a post from me asking what they would think if Trump wouldn't step down when he loses the election.

This guy came in with the deep strained bigthonk, and I couldn't just....it could be copypasta if it's cleaned up a little bit. It's neat. I'm happy with it. This is a Canadian, too. It's beautiful.
