UNITED STATES—The fate of the country lies in the citizens' cooperation for the common good, and one man has made it his mission to unite everyone by calling his political opponents “Nazis" over the Internet.
The Internet allows this man to fight the good fight with a greater audience and a lower requirement of bravery than was ever possible in face-to-face interactions. Some, however, have condemned the man's approach as one akin to cyberbullying. He says, “Cyberbullying? No, I'm just showing people the error of their ways by calling them murderous racists that everyone should hate. I'm not doing anything unreasonable.”
Despite the fact the man’s political opponents stand for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to conduct business without government interference, equal individual rights for all races—all things that the Nazi regime condemned—he continues to use “Nazi" to refer to anything he believes is evil. “It really doesn't matter what Nazism actually was, as long as people today know that ‘Nazi' means ‘really bad,’” he stated, “so then people will reject whatever I label as ‘Nazi.’” The fact that Trump was only talking about illegal immigrants who killed people or dealt drugs with his “they're not sending their best" comment, or that he is not rounding up Latinos and putting them in camps, or that the border holding facilities are just a continuation of previous administrations' policies, or that he has not used a single national crisis to increase his executive authority has no impact on this man's mission to equate Trump with Nazism.
Undeterred by a lack of understanding of what Nazism truly is, and of the full context of current events, this man is sowing community where before there was division. “In all my interactions with other people, the one thing I've learned during my time on this earth is that when you call someone a literal embodiment of evil—or just a rude name, if you want to start slow—they always repent and agree with you,” he said.
He says of the 2016 presidential election, “That was just a monumental outlier. Obviously, if we continue the same tactic of name-calling, all the people who supported Nazi-in-Chief Trump will come to their senses, apologize to people like me, and vote how we tell them to vote.”
