Everyone is a Nazi?

Do you believe this statement makes sense?

"Everyone in the United States is a Nazi, because we all benefit from Project Paperclip, which used Nazi scientists, knowledge, and technology - much of which was gained via concentration camp experiments. Almost everything we have in the modern world is influenced in some way by Project Paperclip and its legacy. Therefore, we benefit from Nazism, both directly and indirectly, which makes us all inherently Nazis."

I don’t buy it.

That would be ALL slurs based on RACE

racial slur (noun): a derogatory or disrespectful nickname for a racial group, used without restraint

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Read “Animal Farm.” Please, just read “Animal Farm.”

You will understand so much about using language as a system of social control and thought manipulation.

[broadly defined word] IS [[broadly defined word]+[concept narrowing word]]

Yeah… no.

Use the correct words to discuss what you’re discussing

Yes, there are racially prejudiced systems, but that does not mean that racism IS racially prejudiced systems (or that sexism for that matter or any -ism IS only the systemic variety). That would be like saying “Since bread is made in factories, ONLY factory made bread is bread.”

Just because someone is or was a victim of something, that doesn’t mean they are incapable of being the aggressor in the same activity. If that were the case, well then, there’d be almost zero domestic violence cases, since most abusers were abused, so, by your reasoning, they must not be abusers. Also, since it’s the system that abuses, there’s no reason to put a stop to their personally abusive behavior. Except, the “system” is just a collection of individuals and the individuals participating in that system need to stop in order for it to end.

If you want to discuss systemic (institutional) racism, then you need to use the proper words, otherwise you are actively creating confusion by using a word which references a much broader topic while trying to insist it ONLY references a more narrow topic.

rac·ism (ˈrāˌsizəm) noun: the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

I know how broken your arguments are, do you?

"Well, people get murdered a lot, so when I stab you in the arm, it doesn’t really count as violence" is the level of statement you’re making.

Or “Most killing happens in the military, therefore any killing outside of military work is not really killing at all.”
