I grew up in times where anyone saying xenophobic/antisemitic/pro-nazi stuff would have outed themselves as complete idiots.
These days I hear shit like "it wasn't all bad, they also built the Autobahn" and similar creepy things on the streets.
Don't stay silent, #resist, oppose, if you're safe enough to do so.
Oh and hi #fediverse! Love to see so many different, interesting people here and *not* be confronted with murderous propaganda, like it happens elsewhere.

Good morning from Berlin,
On this day 80 years ago the pogroms against Jews started in Germany.
I honestly used to believe it will never be possible again that blatant Nazis can enter the parliament.
#neverAgain feels wrong to write, we're in the middle of normalizing atrocities.
Not sure what the right thing is to do, but taking my privilege to vote every four years and small acts of solidarity seem not to be enough anymore.

It cannot do any of these things because imperialism does not cannibalize itself. As long as these systems stand unopposed or worse, opposed simply from within the system (voting, the Department of "Justice", non-violence) it will never collapse. Jeff Sessions being fired, one way or another, does not matter. It is a silly distraction, it is a way to exhaust you. A focus on this nonsense diverts meaningful revolutionary forces.

Let's say a 300 million people get together with the intention of killing you via the "death of 300 million cuts". Each of them delivers a tiny pinprick to you. The question is: what are you allowed to do to any given one of them in order to defend your own life? What are you allowed to do to the entire group?
