If platforming Nazis and white supremacists were distasteful but ultimately necessary aspects of an open equatable civil society, I sort of feel like we’d have an open equitable civil society now instead of being on the brink of a far-right fascist white nationalist uprising.
Maybe it’s OK to make saying and doing Nazi shit illegal, idk.
If I say and do Nazi shit I think Big Tech should cut me off.
“If you make saying Nazi shit illegal where does it end?”

Well, making Nazi shit legal to say ends with a Nazi president organizing a Nazi coup.

Why don’t we try the other way and find out?
What my novel presupposes is, what if it is actually OK.
What if it’s in fact not beneficial to force people to constantly have to defeat Nazis.

100% correct. It's time for Democrats to stop treating Republicans as colleagues and start treating them as what they've proven to be—and enforcing it.
I want to see enduring and open hostility from the Democratic caucus toward the Republican caucus. I want them all shut out and sidelined and entirely disregarded.

Until this happens I won't feel we are moving from danger to safety.
I want to see Biden's justice department vigorously pursuing/dismantling white supremacist terror cells, both within police departments and without. I want the military purged of white supremacists and sympathizers.

Until this happens we aren't moving from danger to safety.

American conservatism intended to demolish democracy rather than share it with non-whites, gays, Muslims, and others, no matter who won the election. There’s no denying it anymore.

White supremacist fascist terrorist cult.
“Not all conservatives” ok if you must but 77.4 million of them. Nothing that’s happened should be a surprise; it was spoken of openly by him. It certainly hasn’t surprised me. 77.4 million. And they were *eager*.
If non-toxic conservatism can be thought to exist within a society optimized for empowered abuse (what would you conserve?), then it should want the Republican Party destroyed as a first order of business. As long as you belong, you're tainted.

It's the new KKK.

Their crimes, no matter how brutal or shocking, immediately become about their redemption, prior even to any consequence.

Their lies, no matter how vacant, become valid perspectives, and we are tasked with not only understanding them but sympathizing.
Their hatred of others becomes something from which they alone suffer.

Their excuses are valid simply because they have made them.

The things they did are always too far in the past to address.

The things they are threatening to do are always too speculative to prevent.
Their greed is celebrated for driving the economy.

Their selfishness, for building wealth.

Their violence is always justified by their fear.

They are never too old to commit youthful indiscretions, even when those indiscretions leave a trail of trauma and corpses.

Joe Biden [stabbed by a dozen Republican Senators on the Capitol steps] Oh gee now *come on* man.
Et tu, Lindsey? you gotta be kidding me, man
Really unhelpful malarkey. [stabbed six more times] You're better than this.

"I want to work with the more sane elements of the Nazi Party and find compromises that help them rehabilitate the party. We should try to encourage the Nazis closer to the center to work with us on our shared values for real solutions for everyone"

Is how it sounds these days.
They just tried to murder Congress. Not a fringe element. Not a handful of protestors. A gang of fascists directed by the President in an attempt to overturn a democratic election that overcame their systemic disenfranchisement, abetted by over 100 representatives and Senators.
The Republican Party is a party so opposed to Black people voting that it dedicated itself to the overthrow of the U.S. government.

That's how it should be talked about, and that's how it should be treated, in public opinion, and under the law.

Because that's what it is.

Rep Peter Meijer is my rep. He is in a party where his colleagues perform fascist acts of propaganda for profit or because they fear violent retribution from their fascist constituents, and he knows this, and he nevertheless stays in his fascist party. So much for him.
The incentive for leaving a fascist party is no longer belonging to a fascist party. It’s not our job to provide additional enticement. It’s our job to oppose.

If not accepting fascism is extreme, let us be extreme.
Let’s stop and list all the incredible accomplishments of our favorite heroes through history who worked to fight for change from the inside as loyal members of a fascist party.
