What's the result, when one person licks a tub of icecream and sticks it back on the shelf? All of the icecream of that particular brand and flavor, in the entire region (sometimes even country), gets inspected on suspicion of being the tampered tub. Even in cases that are demonstrably hoaxes
, precautions are taken to make sure that none of the ice cream on the shelves has been tampered with. According to your statement here, this is an overreaction to something that has a minuscule chance of effecting any individual tub, and is thus a waste of time/resources. Yet that's not how people behave, and not how reality works. If you take part in the lottery, where you have a 0.01% chance of something terrible happening to you every time you play, and there's no benefit to taking part in the lottery, that's a shit lottery no reasonable person would take part in, because you can never win - you can only lose. This is the milkshake situation.
It sounds like you're saying that because we can't predict with 100% certainty what the actual risk is, we should just not take any precautions. Which is a really weird position, when you're facing people who openly hate you and are part of a group that is more than willing to assault you. literally the people I'd be least willing to give the benefit of the doubt in the fucking world. So why exactly should I assume that person with the crowbar isn't intending to use it? Why should I assume that milkshake is just a milkshake? What is the benefit to me, of assuming the milkshake is a milkshake, if regardless of what is in it, I'm going to do everything possible to not get covered in it?>>313218>And they only look like fascists to people who don't know better, which is the whole point of the thread.
Like many others here, I don't think you know what a fascist is. You know what a Nazi is, somewhat. But while all Nazis are fascists, not all fascists are Nazis.
>I'm giving you my interpretation of the footage of the attack.
I'm curious what your opinion on the attack would be if Andy Ngo were replaced instead by someone whose politics you agreed with. You don't have to answer that, because I already know.
>Does it even matter how many punches were dealt exactly?
If we can agree that one is too many, then no. But if you're minimizing it by saying "it's not that bad" then yes, because it is that bad.
>Reminder that antifascist deathtoll is zero.
Since we're resorting to whataboutisms, reminder that the "antifascist" deathtoll is in the tens of millions.
>Reminder that Andy Ngo is the one who doxxed a person after they got their spine broken by a Proud Boy.
I don't know. Maybe in communist Euroland, you don't have basic rights, like knowing the identity of your accuser. Unless this person was a minor, there is no reasonable justification for keeping their identity private since they are part of this public criminal investigation.
>Whataboutism? Who cares.
You don't get a license to use vigilante justice because of something that someone else did.
>Is it arbritary to decide that some people should probably cut it out with the "jews shall not replace us" shit for example?
>Legal = moral btw
never said it was. If you disagree with the law, then you can push to change the law. You don't get to take the law into your own hands.
>Can you like stop defamating me? To you pre-emptive action is anything before the ashes of people start floating through the chimney.
You're literally calling people fascist, many of whom are not fascist, and then using that as justification to attack them, because you either don't know or care what a fascist is.
>No, what I'm saying is that fascists don't get a seat at the table.
and anyone you disagree with is a fascist, amirite?
>And that's a good thing.
weird flex, but ok.
>So that innocent movements like the Proud Boys or Identity Evropa have less resistance?
How about countering their bad ideas with better ideas, instead of losing the argument by resorting to terrorism?
>Ok, weird flex. Kinda cringing right now.
If I'm not mistaken, weren't you the person who said you'd love to forcibly put people who disagree with you in camps and/or execute them? If you think I consider you anything other than a psychopath, you're very mistaken.
>Oh my, did you almost realize that violence is more than physical assault?
words hurt, so if someone hurts your feelings, you're justified in attacking them. sjw logic in a nutshell.
>This is some straight up fascist shit.
Again, you don't know what fascism is.
>I think they actually removed harmful substances from the shakes by going vegan. No cows were forced into labour for this protest!
>The fuck do you mean? The police are literally there to protect the far-right rallies from antifascists.
meanwhile, Antifa is directing traffic while the police literally stand by and do nothing, based on the orders of both the mayor and police chief of Portland. Antifa - people who think they're above the law, and apparently are.
What point are you trying to make here, exactly?
