And I rest my case.

To some it is flying...

To others, it is falling with grace.

Quoting "Godwin's Law" is a bit of a cop out, though, isn't it?

Does it change the applicability of the argument in the slightest?

However, breakthestreak introduced the topic of Hitler in this post here.

And The Redneck reiterated it in this post here.

So it would actually be 'you people' and not me, who invoked it.

The Wikipedia definition of fascism describes the leftists of today very successfully

The one single line that states that fascism is usually associated with the political right is obsolete

Just because the first fascists were right wing doesn’t mean that only the right can be fascists

Which is more than evident today

“Think how we think, or we’ll doxx you, attack you in your homes, even kill you” - actions kind of prove what people are really like

Operation paperclip, still going strong in the dEmocrat party. (The party of the KKK, Jim Crow and the party that opposed the black vote and supported segregation too, what a surprise)

Anyway, on topic. Guns save lives. And sales are BOOMING!

Guns save lives. That’s a fact.



I'll bet you more guns are used to threaten or end life than to save them.

It only describes the tactics, not the political ideals behind them.

According to the logic in your post, Nazis used military force to attack their enemies. The US uses military force to attack their enemies so that means the US are Nazis. That is a non sequitur fallacy.

Fascists are conservative authoritarians. I know many in the US think "conservative = freedom loving" but the fact is that there are conservatives that want government to censor certain types of books, music, tv shows and movies. They uphold the government's war on drugs. They would love for the government to deny women the right to an abortion or for same sex couples to legally marry and more stuff on top of that. Conservatives but not necessarily freedom loving.

The leftists you mentioned are also authoritarian but want the opposite. They are not conservative, they are progressive, that makes them a group that doesn't fit in with the fascists.

I know it also doesn't help that fascist is used as an adjective in the US, instead of a noun.

And on topic, guns both take and save lives.

Who cares about what kind of bet you would make that has nothing to do
with Americans rights. What criminals do with their guns has nothing do with
what responsible gun owners do with theirs. What is your argument? Do you
have one?

I should have shot the SOB.

Don't beat yourself up over that. Hindsight is 20/20. If anyone other than the SOB himself bears responsibility, it's the store owner.

TheRedneck


The beating myself up bit ended a long time ago. I still see the SOB around town. When he sees me he takes off fast.
