SJWs and ANTIFA may claim they’re standing up for people they claim are oppressed when the truth is, they’re only standing up for them to benefit themselves and to gain influence and to make money from them. SJWs and ANTIFA are the most racist sexist fucking people anyone will ever meet; they’re the true fascists and they’re fucked up.
with the times we live in now, i think it’s important to note that this:
is entirely different from this:
The first one is a religious symbol used in multiple religions such as Hinduism or Buddhism.
The term “swastika” comes from the Sanskrit word “
स्वस्तिक” which is more accurately translated as “svastika.” It means a particularly lucky object. The symbol is as old as history:
The second picture is a symbol co-opted by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party - the Nazis. Hitler, choosing this symbol, stated, “As National Socialists, we see our program in our flag. In red, we see the social idea of the movement; in white, the nationalistic idea; in the swastika, the mission of the struggle for the victory of the Aryan man, and, by the same token, the victory of the idea of creative work.“
The main difference? The second one is tilted at a 45 degree angle and used in the common white circle on a red background.
clarification: most swastikas in western society are probably used for neo-nazi purposes. however, it’d be unwise to dismiss the true origins of the swastika, which is one of peace.
Opinion: The masses aren’t lazy or ignorant, they’re rationally apathetic. People will put hours upon hours of thought into which cell phone to buy but completely ignore politics because they’re observant enough to understand that the cell phone is the thing they can actually exert some sort of control over; when you remember that most people equate political engagement with voting, you can see that that’s a fundamentally rational decision. If you want to get people engaged, you gotta show ‘em what gets results.
I love seeing articles and videos of young people below voting age attending town hall meetings and asking questions. I’m inspired by all of the teens who are getting involved and finding ways to make their voices heard.
