I’ve already gone after the left at length for their usage of the term “Nazi” to describe people, and how that basically robs the term of any meaning, because as Chris Ray Gun pointed out in a really fantastic song he did, the regressive left has this belief that if you don’t constantly bitch about President Trump, then you are a white supremacist/Nazi/fascist/insert bad group here. Nazi has joined the pantheon of terms that mean nothing now thanks to their rampant overuse by them, such as sexism, misogyny, and given the usage of terms like stare rape and birth rape, rape isn’t too far behind. Thankfully that last term has gotten a lot less used over the years. I’m not hearing it bandied about as much.
But last night, I was scrolling on Facebook, as I am prone to do, and I saw a post by someone that just pissed me off. See, I have friends of all political stripes. I don’t believe that a person should just have one ideology in their lives. I don’t want to live in an echo chamber. Unfortunately, it means that my Facebook page runs the gamut of far-left to far-right opinions. People like myself who try and see nuance appear to be in short supply.
What I saw was a meme where it had a pile of shoes from a concentration camp, with the tagline underneath that the Jews died because they gave up their guns to Hitler. The instant I saw that, I was pissed. Really, really pissed. What a way to not learn from history. What a way to have the memories of the dead insulted to help your political ideology. Where do I get started on how stupid this is?
For starters, yes, because if the Jews had guns, then they totally would have fucked up the Nazis and they never would have been taken to concentration camps. I’m totally sure that’s how it would have worked. A community that has ALWAYS been an extreme minority would have stepped to the Nazis and won. Yeah, that’s how it would have gone down. It would have been a one-sided massacre. Nope, just like the gun-toting, ‘Murica-loving patriots, they would have stepped up to the fascist government and thrown down the tyrants!
Except, you know, in the real world. Outside of the Clint Eastwood delusion that these gun nuts have thinking that they are Dirty fucking Harry. A world where, in battles between David and Goliath, Goliath wins. Because Goliath has an army, and better weapons, and combat vehicles, and the infrastructure to be able to support a conflict. This wasn’t Vietnam, where skilled guerilla fighters were able to use the jungle and trenches to their benefit. This wasn’t the Middle East, where the fighters there have a vast community to repel foreign invaders along with the support of the local populace. This was Nazi Germany, and this fucking retard is saying that if the Jews had had their guns, then they would have been able to stop what happened to them. They would have fought very bravely, and just like these “patriots” who think they are going to step to tyrant, they would have died very quickly. That’s how it would have gone in the real world.
But you can’t tell these people that. They live in their fucking delusional land where they role-play as righteous warriors who have Gawd on their side and will bring freedom to the land. That’s the mindset of these fucking idiots. Their political platform and their worldview is that the good guy with the gun stops the bad guy with the gun. I’m sorry, who am I supposed to be afraid of again? The government who has NEVER called for the banning of all guns, or the people who all seem to think that the Confederacy really won the Civil War?
I fucking hate that we have reached a point where the victims of the Holocaust are nothing more than a prop to be used to sell some retard’s propaganda. I hate that, instead of them being a lesson about the nature of dogma and what it can do to a country that is already angry, they are now just a tool for selling a viewpoint. That’s what that conservative meme was. It pisses me off so much that that is the country I live in. I live in a nation where I have to suffer the slings and arrows of fucking IDIOTS who refuse to even court the notion of sensible gun control. Because it steps on the Second Amendment! No, you fucking retard, it does not. It has people like me just wanting to have it so that you have to have a license to buy a gun, and guns have to be registered before you can buy them. It means trying to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong person, when I can go to someone’s house a buy a gun off their porch and nobody would ever know. Hell, they could give me the damn thing.
And to anyone who actually believes the way the person who shared that meme does, fuck you. You’re fucking stupid. You are among the stupidest people who have EVER lived. You are a worthless hunk of skin and I hope you end up on the business end of a mass shooter. Hopefully you have your gun. Let’s see how many innocent people die so you can be Dirty Harry. And can we PLEASE stop using the Nazis and especially the victims of the fucking Holocaust as props to sell political points?! Is there a chance that we can do that? It not only shows that you can only lean on emotion to make your argument instead of rationality, but it also shows that you are fucking stupid and haven’t learned a single thing from history.
