It strikes me as so intellectually disingenuous when presented with an idea that seems too overwhelming to argue, that many people just resolve to ad hominem attacks.
Just because someone points out a difference in culture between races, notes that we are not all grey robots and are not all the same; today they are automatically racist. Just because someone speaks of the truth of the situation does not make this so. Congruently, just because people point out these differences doesn’t infer that they hate those differences. Some people do. To further that idea: Just because someone doesn’t like the behavior of a certain individual, does not condemn a whole race of people who can be as various in their traits and culture as any other race. Racist is when someone is judged solely on the color of their skin or the origin of their culture as a blanket policy of belief about that group as a whole.
Having said that, let me expand. Just because a person does not agree with the behavior of an individual not of their own race, also does not make them racist. For example: In the territory of New Guinea, Indonesia there resides a tribe called the Kowani. They are one of the few remaining groups in the world who still believe in and actively practice cannibalism. They have their hokey religious reasons for this but I still find it animalistic, backward and horrific. Culture or no, this to me is unacceptable. Just because they think it’s OK, doesn’t mean that I have to. In my book, it’s murder and these pieces of shit should not exist. They also happen to be dark skinned. Am I racist? No. I realize that the individuals in this group of black animals do not represent the nature of dark skinned people as a whole. Anyone who would accuse me of that is just well….a moron.
“If I don’t agree with you, and accept every goddamned lifestyle under the sun happily and without disagreement, I am automatically a Nazi”
Any attempt made today at “nationalism” is construed to be like the Nazis. First of all, Hitler was the very definition of racist. He was in fact a national SOCIALIST. If you went against the fatherland, then you were killed. This is slightly different than what we are talking about today.
Look, if you have a club and you really want to join, then you assume that there will be certain rules and behaviors that you would have to comply with to be associated with said club. If they just let anyone in and their membership was all over the place with their ideology, then the whole notion of the club is moot. What’s the point of organizing?
This is what’s happening here. This country was founded on a very simple set of ideas and laws. Free as it was meant to be, citizenship required adherence to a set of rules. People are tested on this knowledge.
One such rule is understanding the structure of government and at the top of the test you are asked what is the supreme law of the land. For those of you who never had to take the test I’ll give you the first one. It’s the constitution. It’s what every member of the government and military swear an oath to protect from enemies foreign and domestic. That part is important.
Next you are required to give up loyalty to other countries. Your responsibility is to the US flag alone. I’m not making this up, it’s on the test.
You have to recognize that the economic system in the US is (supposed to be) capitalist.
You have to understand why it was that we fought a revolutionary war against the British.
You have to understand which oceans border us, a rough location of some states and a number of other geographical incidences, but the big ones are above.
If you’ve entered into this country and have not understood this principle then you are not a citizen.
So here’s the deal. To say that nationalist means Nazi is just disingenuous. If there was no test for citizenship ….and there is….there would be no borders, no countries and no flags. While part of me thinks this could be a better thing ( I do tend to have Utopian dreams of a stateless society) I accept and cherish the fact that what we have here is possibly the closest attempt at a limited small state that we can hope for until the singularity happens….
So, if defending our borders, keeping a watchful eye out for those who would undermine these ideas, respecting the flag and standing for the Constitution makes you think I’m a Nazi, then I suggest you study up on your civics and take the test yourself. If you can’t pass it honestly then maybe you should try to create your own country, let everyone and anyone in and let me know how that works out for you.
The Kowani are hungry and they just got a one way ticket to ignoramus-land. Have fun with that fuck-tards.
