There’s so much Monday in this Monday, I’m Mondayed out, and it’s not even 11 AM. Nazis are trending on twitter, and I got some “both sides” nonsense in the comments.
Yet another no.
There aren’t “both sides” when one of the sides is comprised of actual nazis. Nazis pushing conspiracies about Jews right on the heels of a mass murder in a synagogue which may not have happened had trump not dissolved the unit that tracked white nationalist domestic terrorist groups.
“Both sides” don’t put children in concentration camps or shrug when a journalist is brutally murdered and dismembered. “Both sides” weren’t sending pipe bombs or finding black people to murder in a grocery store when a black church was locked.
“Both sides” aren’t saying they want to kill gay people, but are willing to do it “humanely.”
There aren’t “both sides.” They are not the same. Nodding politely at such garbage normalizes people who intend to do grievous harm to others, who have done grievous harm to others.
It gives cover to such people. And in doing so, you become one of those people.
Do you want to be one of the people committing grievous harm on others? If you do, this is not the place for you.
If you don’t, it’s time to reconsider the way you filter information.
