Nazis Are Bad. Full Stop.

It really doesn’t seem that this should be a hard thing to say. Nazis are bad. The KKK is bad. White supremacy is bad. Hate is bad. Running someone over with a car is bad. Full stop. No buts. No need to add anything. Unfortunately, I see way too many people who feel the need to add a but.

Nazis are bad…but this all started because removing Confederate statues is bad.

Nazis are bad but…what about the counter-protesters.

Nazis are bad but…the police should have protected them

Nazis are bad but…what about Black Lives Matter?

Running someone over is bad but…they shouldn’t have been blocking the road.

No. Stop. If you feel the need to add a but at the end of a sentence denouncing hate there is something wrong and the something wrong is you. Those buts are basically you saying you are OK with Nazis marching in the streets. Those buts say you are fine with the KKK spreading their hate. Those buts say you are OK with hate under certain circumstances.

Hate is bad. That’s it. The end.

    I wish there was an “I love this” button instead of just a “like” button. Well said.

    Yes. When someone says, “Message A, but …” they negate Message A. False equivalencies are for sophists and cowards who aren’t willing to take a stand out loud either way.

    Reblogged this on The World's Common Tater and commented:

    I promise I won’t constantly annoy everyone with revlogs, but with the rally in DC today and the anniversary of Charlottesville I thought I would remind everyone of my hot take that Nazis are bad.
