People who are soft on Nazis, either by defending their “views” as “free speech” or simply by tolerating and rationalizing their existence, whether in the name of liberalism, conservatism, whatever, are morally on par with actual Nazis. Not like, quantifiably *as bad*, but they’re in the same fucking ballpark. The existence of Nazis and fascists of all varieties represents both a metaphysical and a concrete threat to the existence of marginalized ethnicities, especially Jews, Rroma, black folks and Arab folks, queers, the disabled, and a host of other targets and vulnerable populations. You can’t quantify that absolute threat until it reaches its threshold. That threshold is genocide, always. Nazi apologists, liberal moderates, whatever: they’re all scum. Nazis are scum and they need to be destroyed by any means necessary.
