The word “alleged” is also interchangeable with the word “said”

I didn’t misstype anything, its simple English

the way I see it the left was and currently, still, is more capable of violenece than the right, so no I dont think this attack will be answered... That is if its indeed was politically motivated which we dont know yet of course...

Your own linked thesauraus doesnt say said is a synonym fo alleged

So just to be clear, if a crowd is shouting someone is a nazi, they probably just mean alleged nazi and arent smearing them?

Oh give me a break, you're not smarter than anyone here.

Write so that you cannot be misunderstood, that way you're not dragging people into semantic debates. Unless that was the goal.

But I think it shows us the dangers of labeling people nazis or racist flippantly. Afd is called far right by almost every source I could find, but they just seem to be a party that is fed up with the migrant policy. The only thing I thought that seemed odd to me was they are against gay marriage and instead favor civil unions, which although I disagree with, hardly makes them evil people.


They are not just a party that is fed up with migrant policy.

I think first and foremost they are populists. During the Eurozone crisis they were primary anti EU. Then came the migrant crisis and they became primary anti migration. The party itself also changed. The moderate EU critics were displaced by the nationalists, pushing the party into a right-wing nationalist direction.

The nazi, racist part comes from their occasional nazi like rhetoric (phrasing) and their connections to far-right groups.

That is correct and if anything this attack on this German politician should be seen as a provocation.



That is if its indeed was politically motivated

I have read the BBC article and they mention that he was attacked by three men or so. Antifascista prefer on attacking as a group. If anything this could have being done by migrants to. Although there is not alot of info coming out of this attack on the attackers or their identity.

German Libaerls are complete fools and idiots if the believe that AFD are fascists.

Certainly they seem to be addressing nationalist concerns.

Getting any deja-vu from the Aussie thread? I sure am.

It's almost like there's a push to make anyone who wants to put the brakes on immigration a "Nazi" who deserves whatever's coming to them. This isn't gonna end well for anyone.


Yes that thread was in my mind when doing this thread, and several others.

There seems to be a rush to just scream "Nazi" at any person who has a problem with migration policy.

regardless of who is to blame in this attack and their motivation, this will be the end result of that tactic, as people will be violently attacked by people who feel its the moral duty to kill these nazis.


Some of you either have comprehension issues or just lose any common sense when discussing certain topics.



A person who thinks that there should be a picture of Hitler in every class room is a nazi scum. If it walks like a duck..
There is no ifs and buts here.
You guys claim that you are against violence and try to be morally inferior are at the same time defending filth that tweets following



So what about the Australia thread?
What?
Get a grip

Yes that thread where we were told 100% of people at that rally were nazis.

Now we saw the video, and not one of you were able to remotely dfefend that claim.

That Blair guy sounds like a jerk, so?

That doesnt mean he is a nazi.

The tendency to scream nazi at anyone who disagrees with certain policies is dangerous, and is used to stifle debate.

Just like that thread turned from talking about problems with migrant crime into "that guy and everyone at the rally are Nazis!"

Just trying to get caught up here, is it okay to kill just Nazi's or is it okay to kill anyone who doesn't think the "correct" way?

Thanks

Does the motivation matter??


Yes, if we're going to infer this was a politically motivated attack by leftists.

People get mugged everyday. I'm not saying it's justified, but it happens. Gangsters don't play fair. I'm not saying this was a mugging or gangster related, but I'm also not saying it was probably politically motivated either. I just don't know.

(Have they found Jimmy Hoffa's body yet?)

The asshole you so eagerly defend wrote that there should be a picture of Hitler in every class room. Cut the victim mentality bs and adress the Facebook post where Blair writes that there should be a picture of Hitler in every classroom and that Mein Kampf should be handed out to every student.

There are two things going on here.

1. You chose to leveled insults instead of just explaining what you meant. That is the most important thing here,

2. you are attempting to say I dont understand english and argue semanticss, but in fact you are wrong on that level as well.

Said does not mean alleged as an adjective, never has.

It means "aformentioned"

If I say "Said court also claims abortion is legal" I dont mean aleged court, I mean the court that was previously mentioned.

Here is some dictionary deifnitions of the word said. No where in any of them do I see that "said" means alleged.


said adjective
ˈsed


Definition of said (Entry 2 of 2)

: aforementioned


Examples of said in a Sentence

Adjective
by order of the judge of said court with said guidebook in hand, we set off to explore the city

Recent Examples on the Web: Adjective
The concept of going to a restaurant, not eating the food, and then exercising at said restaurant is just baffling.



www.merriam-webster.com...

and more

en.oxforddictionaries.com...

www.vocabulary.com...

dictionary.cambridge.org...

www.collinsdictionary.com...

I await your source that said means alleged.

If you are going to insult people and argue semantics, at least make sure you are correct.
