One of the consequences of the relentless name-calling and demonizing of conservatives by the Left is that the epithet “Nazi” ceases to have much meaning. By now it has come to mean no more than “anyone who doesn’t agree with the Progressives, Socialists, Greens, and Feminists.” Like much of the rest of our vocabulary, the currency of the word has been debased by the Glossocracy.
Phanarath had some things to say on the topic which are pertinent, and worth reproducing here:
As for “real” racists and Nazis, I don’t consider them a big issue. It’s not like our prisons are filled with Nazis, or 70% of all violent crime including rapes are committed by Nazis. We don’t have huge unemployment problems within our Nazi no-go zones. We don’t constantly hear about Nazi groups demanding respect and special treatment. Forced Nazi-marriages haven’t been a big issue lately. And if Julius Børgesen indeed left Nazism behind, it seems to have happened completely without any death threats against him.- - - - - - - - - -
70 years ago the Left was all about sucking up to the Nazis. Now after they are long gone, the Left gets all brave and wants to fight them. It’s much more convenient to fight tyranny after it’s gone. Fighting the tyranny that we have today is nasty stuff; I mean, they can fight back, just to name one rather unpleasant thing.
The tyranny we face today is Islam, and personally I always get happy when I hear of someone who left Islam behind.
Any freedom-loving person should be happy when someone leaves tyranny behind, be it Nazism, Communism, or Islamism.
It’s one for the good guys.
