    You have a Germantown?

    Did you run out of names halfway through building the country or what?

    edit: anyway, don't harass people.

    Alyssa Milano and some posters here think they’re KKK hats despite nonwhites wearing them, so yeah.

    There’s New Britain in CT. A lot of towns and cities take European influence due to history.

    I don't like the values that hat represents and I pass strong judgement towards those who wear it.

    With that said..I'm not going to swing at those who wear it..I don't see the good that can come of that.

    It’ll be like Wolfenstein except without the Nazis and the shitty sequel script.

    This is exactly why it baffles me that being a moderate or a centrist is now a bad thing. The United States was built off of fucking compromise.

    I can't believe the ad's advocating punching nazis. Nazis built this country. :dank

    Spoiler:
    my only problem with the ad tbh is the actor has a wet sounding mouth and it bothers my autism

    Except the argument can be extended to anything you disagree with. Especially when people who're even on the right side of the left i.e. center-left, are called alt-right nazis for having different points of view. At that point you have to wonder how people are going to interpret that ad.

    He's condoning violence against anyone who's views you find distasteful, especially when he says "some speech requires a more visceral response," but who and how is certain speech determined to merit such response? That's exactly what nazis believed yet somehow because it's used in the context of anti-nazis it's ok?

    Yeah, 'nazi' is sometimes a dogwhistle for conservatives, but I don't know what to do because I've watched how progressives mangle conservative language into all these dogwhistless too and I don't like it when they do it. Like they think maga hats are dogwhistles for racism, antimmigration is a dogwhistle for white nationalism. I don't know how to react anymore.

    I mean, at least the ad's specifically saying nazis and showing neo-nazi white supremacist richard spencer. They didn't even do something cute like show a guy in a maga hat in the background. Hell, AMC's Preacher showed a nazi in a maga hat last season.

    I feel like that's the kind of thing the rest of us should brush off when at all possible. Because 2019 progressives certainly won't. And we're better than them.

    Yet Spencer wasn't doing anything violent so the "stunning and brave soul" who punched him behind his back still did something that is wrong.

    I don't care what ideas someone has, but if they are talking to someone and you sneak up on them and assault them, you just commited bona fide assault and that's not behaviour that should be glorified or promoted.
