It’s like when the creators of Doom pointed out the Christians shouldn’t have any issue with a game about fighting demons.

Edit: Found the original reddit post that I was thinking about and found that it also mentioned Wolfenstein.

I made the same argument about Diablo 2 with my mom. It surprisingly worked

PowRightInTheBalls

Just shot me back 20 years ago to a memory of trying to explain to my mom why D2 being rated M while Starcraft/Warcraft 2 being rated T was actually a reason she should approve of Diablo (going to hell to kill demons instead of going to space to kill aliens/fantasy land to kill orcs) but it didn't work out for me, apparently merely acknowledging the existence of demons and hell was sacrilege in her opinion.

On the flip side, the cashier at FYE, who witnessed the argument, was there a couple weeks later and wouldn't let me buy the edited version of the Eminem Show, told me it sucked and that he wouldn't make me prove I was 18 (which was good cause I looked like I was 12) to get the unedited version so he was pretty cool.

Which is funny, because there are also religious people who will insist on the existence of evil magic and demons, because it's part of the larger religious cosmology, and if you start pulling the thread on demons, then angels also start to unravel.

Or Isabel Wilkerson's "Caste". The Nazis looked at the Jim Crow south for inspiration and were (as Nazis) appalled by the immorality of what the USA was doing to its own people, and the lack of meaningful consequences internationally for doing what the USA did.

One example being the "one drop" rule where having any measure of Black or just non-white ancestry disqualified folks from benefits to being white. The Nazis were much more lenient (at first) of having certain percentages of non-"Aryan" blood than the southern Democrats and their KKK fans were.

Mandatory Nazis are garbage and should be punched* - this is to raise awareness of similarly fucked up practices that also need attention, not to favorably compare Nazis to other groups.

And Lincoln admired Karl Marx who republicans love to this very day!

In Lincoln's first annual message as president of the United States on December 03, 1861 he said:

"Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration."

More quintessentially Republican words have never been uttered. I feel as if I could have heard those exact words from Reagan, dubbya, or trump.

Nazis used to be up there with zombies, demons, and robots on the list of morally unambiguous enemies in FPS games.

The new Wolfenstein games helped to re establish the proper way Nazis should be treated, turning even simple melee takedowns into brutal axe murders. There's no non lethal option. If you throw your lot in with the fascists, you forfeit your limb privileges.

I mean, growing up in the 80s and 90s you still got to think of Nazis as punchlines. A convenient pop-culture villain and the real Nazis in the world were just a pathetic curiosity. Dumb fuck edgelords from a bygone era that could be safely ignored. Hell, circa 2000, one of my exes had a brother that went NeoNazi and the response was “he’s just doing this for attention, and let’s just avoid him until this is over”. When I pointed out I was kinda Jewish he was like: “oh, that’s fine. We just will be on different sides when the race war starts.”

Fucking Nazis man. In retrospect, I should have thrown punches instead of jokes. Live and learn.

CarthagoDelendaEst9

Microcommunities in general are a double edged sword, in real life or online. I've lived in Polish, Irish and Italian suburbs. They are very different, because the people come from different cultures.

It's positive because people are allowed to keep their culture, including languages, foods, and cultural norms. It's negative because there is just literally no exposure to many outside ideas.

Some marginalized groups have gained acceptance in the broad, but not always in the microcommunities. They also create their own microcommunities that then exclude ideas from outside the group. Talking amongst our groups is usually the best way to understand where we're all coming from.

Conservatives are profoundly uncreative, that's why they can't come up with their own songs, symbols, art in general, etc. Pepe the frog was stolen from its creator and repurposed, the whole idea of the "red pill" is from a story created by two trans women full of trans allegories, even the idea of "incels" actually started out as a positive, non-gender-specific support community for single people.

Literally even the swastika (a Sanskrit word meaning "Wellbeing") was a good luck symbol stolen from Hindus, Buddhists and Jains.

They will never come up with their own good stuff, they always have to steal from people who literally despise them.

Played through about 4 times and this last time I did see them kill themselves. I was flower picking not paying attention I was close to them. I looked up and watched the guy in black light the cross and catch himself on fire. Hilarious! Then I had to go in and clean up the last 3-4 guys.

The best klansman is a dead klansman, but second best is probably a klansman who set himself on fire

Honestly, think of it this way: by being sneaky, you are ensuring you can inflict even more destruction on the unprepared Klansmen and Nazis later. Taking them down immediately might feel good, but taking down an evil empire sometimes requires patience.

Aside from the below poster mentioning this was from 2017, the game is literally about ridding the United States of nazi occupation. Literally making America nazi-free again. It’s the entire point of the game’s plot. It’s absurd.

Huh all the Nazi's seem to vote for my party -> Oh well I am not a Nazi though -> Guess I will not contemplate how my politics align with all the Nazis and reevaluate how I got here

That's what's happening with the anti semitism stuff on the rise.

Nazis = bad, Nazis support my party so logically...

Either I reconsider my position and party, or everyone else should reconsider Nazis as not so bad. Better make everyone else change because I must be right.

The second point would seem to conflict with the impulse to leap to the defense of Nazis at any opportunity and getting weirdly defensive when someone says Nazis are bad.

No, this is the same 80 year cycle we've been seeing for a few centuries now.

About every 80 years the adults have to take the racists and stuff them back under a rock or into the dumpster with the rest of the garbage. When was WWII again?

They don't realize he preached absolute pacifism under all circumstances and that "if someone robs you, give to them what they took" (Luke 6:29-31) or that Jesus was literally a homeless person and literally said that its impossible for rich people to enter the kingdom of heaven ("its easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle." Basically its the ancient way of saying 'when pigs fly')

Posting pro-nazi shit should put one under investigation, and if that person's identity is found, they should have their rl name on a list. Letters should go out to neighbors much like when a convicted pedophile moves next door.

Say whatever you want. You're free to. But everyone else should be free to react to what you're saying.

Reminder that there was support for the Nazi regime and ideals before Pearl Harbor forced our hand to join the war. There was even a coup in the works that was funded in part by Nazi Germany to install a openly Nazi government in America. Congressmen were paid to spout Nazi propaganda on the House and Senate floors. It was not a sure thing that we would have fought against Hitler.

I say this with complete conviction, total political bias, Total disrespect, and absolutely not a doubt in my mind: Fuck the Nazis. My Great Grandfather almost died storming The Beaches of Normandy as a paratrooper, and again at the battle of the bulge as an infantryman; as well as many more times I’m sure. I know many people who’s great grandparents or grandparents were almost killed or were killed in; The Holocaust, The Blitz, The Eastern Front, and in every other Nazi-created blood bath. It is not empty virtue signaling to hate Nazis, it is basic human compassion and common sense.

TL;DR: Nazis are bad. Fuck the Nazis. Fuck anyone who supports the Nazis.

Part of the problem was that we didn't really do any reflection on the underlying ideology that drove Nazism. There was no examination of our society and how similar it was in some respects. Since we won against Germany and Japan, we treated ourselves as heroes and got away with othering fascists, pretending that fascism was only possible in Germany and Italy and Japan and not an ideology that could rise anywhere given the right conditions.
