very nice of the fascist countries to identify themselves like this tbh
lol at getting some person responding to this repeating fascist propaganda about how the soviet union was evil and this was actually an evil resolution wrongfully decrying innocent people who sided with the Nazis to stop the soviet union
I think it's instructive by the way
the fascist propaganda about brave anti communist heroes (who just coincidentally also worked with the Nazis) is normal and acceptable throughout most of Europe
that really is what this map is about
even "respectable" European countries don't want to contradict the lies
@SeanAloysiusOBrien ah yes, Australia,,,,,,famously a part of Western Europe (though I'm surprised they didn't vote against)
@SeanAloysiusOBrien list of nation leaders the US has a gun pointed at
@SeanAloysiusOBrien "The Absent Chad"
@pony @dym @SeanAloysiusOBrien all I know is my Slovak grandmother had to flee the Nazis because they were going to kill her (Dark skinned woman, worked with the local Jewish community), I wonder why your grandparents did not have to flee the Nazis...
Stalin saved Eastern Europe from US style reservations under the Nazis at best and a Final Solution at worst. You might not like it, but that's the facts jack.
@SeanAloysiusOBrien oh my god and they're all white countries
@SeanAloysiusOBrien i hate to break it to you but central and eastern europe aren't part of western europe and neither is asia minor
@SeanAloysiusOBrien beginning to think the UN should just kick the US out
it's not like trump would object
@SeanAloysiusOBrien ah yes. estonia, lithuania, poland, czech republic and romania. the famous west europe
@SeanAloysiusOBrien germany abstained?
that's.... weird, given their strong stance against nazi iconography
#LB genre ?? comment tu peux faire ça et dire t’es une démocratie ??
@SeanAloysiusOBrien ah yeah that makes total sense. weird how every nonwhite country on the planet falls for this plot that the internet rando can see through
@SeanAloysiusOBrien THAT PERSON HAS "MARKET ECONOMY MARTYR" IN THEIR BIO LMFAOO
@SeanAloysiusOBrien I have no fucking clue what that means except I'm 1000% certain it's libertarian nerd shit
@ItsMorgan @SeanAloysiusOBrien it's from this incredible looking podcast https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/human-thriving-institute/becoming-an-ayn-rand-hero
@SeanAloysiusOBrien flanders' (and thus one of belgium's) biggest party is directly descended from a party whose first policy point was pardoning collaborators, and considered this an essential point in their federalist/separatist program.
@SeanAloysiusOBrien now make a list of the countries where opposing the unelected government gets you put into a prison camp
hint: it’s green countries
sounds about racist lol
oh wait plemora user nvm not shocked
@SeanAloysiusOBrien nice b8 m8 i r8 8/8
@SeanAloysiusOBrien imagine being in the UN and voting against this. Literally just leave if you don't wanna agree with the "bad countries" about this basic thing. NATO would be one thing, but Jesus christ.
@SeanAloysiusOBrien I mean, I'm pretty sure brazils fascist
yeah it's not all inclusive unfortunately, but still rather informative
@SeanAloysiusOBrien its incredibly disappointing to see ireland on there but then again fine gael are descended from the blueshirts, so its hardly surprising
@SeanAloysiusOBrien The fuck is wrong with Germany and... the rest of Europe. Ew.
well, being 100% antifascist means you have to stop parading around "heroes" who fought the evil Soviets (and also just happened to collaborate with the nazis)
@SeanAloysiusOBrien @OCRbot I am not sure if you can take it at face value.. uff confusing it with a 2014 thing.. https://www.un.org/press/en/2014/gashc4124.doc.htm see 2018 on the map.. and also see a call for input on 2020, that probably preceeded this one? https://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/Racism/SRRacism/Pages/Call2020GA.aspx
The 2014 one the US basically saying in that case Belarus was using similar language in their politics and others are in disagreement because Stalinism isn't treated aswel... I mean, it's not clear it's not we can take the map at face value.
here is a little more detailed info (uncaptioned)
@SeanAloysiusOBrien apparently it's pretty much a yearly thing https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-11-16/us-nazi-ban-fail/9157214?pfmredir=sm
Wonder what exactly what actions the resolution asks for that infringe on free speech.
I do have my doubts about US long-term adherence to free speech when it comes to unionizing and left wing politics. And outright threats or calls to violence are really not free speech anymore. Infact Nazism itself is exactly that, isn't it.
a lot of it is because it's seen as being involved in the geopolitics between Russian and Ukraine, because Ukranian politics heavily upholds anti-soviet figures who also just so happened to collaborate with the Nazis
but it also does matter because the reason that happens is because modern Ukrainian politics is heavily dominated by neo fascists
