A helpful rule of thumb I borrowed:

A huge number of Americans believe in an alternate reality. But just as intensely as I believe they are deluded, they think I am the one who is deluded.

So, how can I be confident in my perception? It can be quite difficult.

1/6
I have found, though, that in times of political confusion, when emotions are running high & creating tunnel vision, the presence of Nazis can be an extremely helpful indicator.

2/6
If I am attending a local demonstration or event & I see Nazis…neo-Nazis, casual Nazis, master race Nazis, or the latest-whatever-uber-mythology-Nazis, I figure out which side they are on. And if they are on my side of the demonstration? I am on the wrong side.

3/6
It is tough to argue moral equivalence when I am standing next to a Nazi. Look to my right. Is there a guy wearing a 6MWE shirt? I am on the wrong side. Look to my left. If that guy is wearing a Camp Auschwitz t-shirt? Wrong side.

4/6
Are Speakers being applauded for referring to things Hitler got right? Wrong side. Team-spirit face paint & hat with animal horns? This is actually an unclear indicator that could mean anything, but safest to keep my distance from that guy anyway, even at a football game.

5/6
However, I can always rely on the presence of Nazis as a guiding light through a fog of disinformation. Some things are relative & politics can absolutely have its opposing sides & grey areas. But evil & good are absolute. So, just look for the Nazis & make your own decision

6/6
