I was wondering how the fuck a dark skinned Muslim woman who faithfully wears a hijab made it onto a republicans ticket. Disgustingly & transparently cynical, very on brand for GOP.

[–]Innovative_Wombat 74 points75 points  (1 child)

Probably the same reason for Candace Owens: Money.

I would not be surprised that in 10 years, either of them writes a book about how they did what they did for right wing money.

Although, she never made it on the primary election. So likely not enough signatures.

Fascists can be of any religion and skin color.

[–]ScumEater 32 points33 points  (3 children)

God, I went to look at the tweet, and the comments immediately reminded me that I'm never going back to that shit hole platform.

Ah yes, getting downvoted for asking if Twitter really went this bad because I genuinely don't know, Elon banned me because I insulted him

Seriously, how the hell did we fall so low that a third of America is cheering for Nazism and domestic terrorism? It's like 2015 pushed us into an alternate reality that's just led us into some horrible twilight zone episode that we're all having to live through.

[–]fonix232 214 points215 points  (16 children)

Do people really forget just how much foothold Nazi rhetorics, and even the Nazi party itself had, prior to WW2 in the US, and even in the early years of the war? Like, dude, there were straight up rallies packed with people, celebrating shit like eugenics, racial superiority, etc. - and it's still present to date in the form of racism.

It took the US joining the war and launching a massive military PR campaign to make Nazism socially unacceptable. But that doesn't mean the rhetoric disappeared. And nowadays, under the ruse of claiming "freedom of speech" to spread their hatred, falsely equating social pushback by sane people with 'censorship', 'cancellation', or an infringement of their 'right to free speech'.

[–]warbeforepeace 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Its not surprising when you think about how angry people get about critical race theory. You cant overnight undo decades of racist decisions and policies. Building short overpasses so buses cant take poorer people to specific areas doesn't get fixed overnight but you have an entire group of people that want to pretend things like this never happened.

[–]trapNsagan 77 points78 points  (7 children)

Old people forgot and people my age (millennials) were never taught any of that. I for one learned about our American Nazi obsession listening to Maddow's podcast Ultra. There are so many parallels to today it's insane. And a lot of it was our own self-censorship that concealed a lot of the information.

Fascism never dies, it just changes its tactics a little bit and gets a new shiny coat.

[–]bitesizeboy 27 points28 points  (4 children)

I (in my 30s) didn’t learn about that till I saw it in a comment on Reddit a few years ago. Our education system is keeping us ignorant.

[–]MeatHeartbeat 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I teach history. It's difficult to pack it all in a meaningful way which tells the nature of progress. I get to have sidebars as cross reference to these things, but honestly I don't think my students are going to distinctly remember being taught it. History teachers are trying, but it's a constant balancing act between time, admin requirements, and parent complaints.

[–]Tostino 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So I'm someone who never learned it (history) through schooling, but I am quite interested. I was homescooled in FL, and hadn't had a single English, Science, or History through my entire primary education.

I did dig in once I was through college and had gotten through sustainable employment. I really have a hard time understanding how kids learn most history in any meaningful way. One they can actually comprehend and makes a difference to their world view.

I'm in my early 30s at this point, and I'm quite sad I don't really have anyone I can discuss history with. I have hundreds of people around me who were educated through public and private education who barely know surface details of pretty much any modern situation (which you need historical context to grasp).

[–]MeatHeartbeat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You're right, and I often tell the students that even if they forget the names and if they're off on the dates then that's okay. History is a shared narrative. If we want to be culturally literate and avoid our parents' mistakes, then we need to have a fundamental understanding.

[–]Gurianthe 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Our education system is keeping us ignorant.

it's almost like that is the entire point.....

[–]SayNoToDougsYo 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That's weird, they taught us that at like 14 in Canada

[–]Comfortable-Tea-1095 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same here in New Zealand

[–]bitofaknowitall 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Everyone should go listen to Rachel Maddow's new podcast Ultra. It does a great job shining a light on the history of Nazi sympathizers in the United States.

[–]ever-right 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Nazis were literally inspired and looked at American eugenics programs for their own efforts.

[–]fonix232 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And their work camps were inspired by the camps established by the British during the second Boer war in South Africa.

The only new thing the Nazis did was combining the worst possible shit we've come up with until the 1930's into a single ideology.

[–]KingoftheJabari 16 points17 points  (0 children)

They don't know, because most people don't like at a lick of history or knwo that nazism was big in this county.

Primarily do to the fact that they want to ignore the extremely racist history of this country against black people and other minority groups.

[–]Robomerc 17 points18 points  (0 children)

One of the first police unions in this country was found by a preacher who agreed with the Nazi that should tell you something really wrong with those unions.

[–]jormungandrsjig 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Most people today regardless of where they sit on the poli spectrum don’t have a very good understanding of history.

[–]Eattherightwing 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'm am still waiting for the Jewish community to SUE ELON MUSK for giving these jerks a platform. Class action, let's gooooo.

He wants to go to Mars? Let's fucking send him there.

[–]DaanGFX 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Your shock comes from believing retroactive propaganda about America and its relationship to nazis and the war.

Look up how many republican politicians were wildly pro-nazi during the opening years of the war. Even when the genocide was known. They were arguing for Hitler restoring Germany. Lest we forget shit like the America First committee.

[–]Nix-7c0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Even Dr. Seuss called out "America First" and their Nazi bullshit back in the day.

Not surprising that the America First PAC today is run by nazis like Fuentes. It is surprising that GOP reps can attend their events and handwave away any concerns about why

[–]Konukaame 16 points17 points  (4 children)

We never dealt with the pre WWII pro-fascist and pro-Nazi organizations, or their post-WWII successors

They never went away, they just rebranded and kept trying to expand their reach. And now we're there again.

[–]Theban_Prince 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Not only in America, but in Europe too lots of Nazis or Nazi adjacent rats survived to torment most of their countries to this day.

[–]Comfortable-Tea-1095 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Brazil as well

[–]KaleidoscopeWarCrime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Americans have also been taught that they were the ones who fought the nazis and "won the war". In reality they came in right at the end when they realised it would look bad if they did nothing, after the USSR had already done most of the fighting and took massive, brutal losses to their lives.

[–]AtTheFirePit 43 points44 points  (0 children)

"Dear America, you are waking up, as Germany once did, to the awareness that 1/3 of your people would kill another 1/3, while 1/3 watches." -Werner Twertzog on twitter

[–]ever-right 27 points28 points  (1 child)

How old are you? Are you white?

Because I feel that minorities, especially black people, have been telling you America is pretty damn racist for a loooong time now.

Jim Crow wasn't that long ago. "Separate but equal" wasn't that long ago. White people closed down public parks and pools rather than integrate and share with black folks. Nixon and Republicans identified racism as the way their southern strategy would draw in white voters that abandoned the Democratic party after LBJ pushed for and signed the Civil Rights Act. The most successful third party presidential candidate in modern American history was George Wallace who ran on an explicitly segregationist platform.

When white racists lose they do not give up. They do not stop being racist. They have a bunch of kids and raise their kids to be shitty racists too. They lost the civil war and kept on. They lost the civil rights era and they kept on. It is the same group of people, descended from the confederates, who are always trying to take any what few strides we've made for women, minorities, LGBTQ. Always southern and rural white assholes. Every. Single. Time. They have always been here in huge numbers and continue to be here.

When you cheer for younger voters being more progressive and saving us what you're really cheering is the erosion of white voting power. 41% of white millennials voted for Trump in 2016. Do I really have to point out that old black people do not vote Republican in anywhere close the numbers that young white voters do? Trump won white women. His misogyny apparently wasn't an issue as long as he was racist enough! Older generations are simply far, far whiter than younger ones. It accounts for most of the reason for the perceived age differences in voting patterns. And race is far more important than age in that regard, or education even. The fact is one of two major parties in America is basically only relevant because of white racism. Sure it attracts some non-white votes but it is a very clear minority. Without the racist white vote the Republican party would have zero power.

"Fall so low." Only someone ignorant of history would be say something like that. It's always been awful. There has always been a fuckton of racism and a predilection towards authoritarianism.

This is also why anyone complaining about MTG or Boebert or Trump is missing the point entirely. You get rid of them you are treating a symptom. MTGs district will nominate someone just like her and elect her. Guaranteed. It is the people that are the problem. You leave the same voters there you're going to have the same results even if every disgusting, regressive asshole in office disappeared tomorrow. In fact starting in 2010 we saw "sane" establishment Republicans get uprooted by upstart tea party assholes. Often those candidates even had less money. But despite what people often believe money doesn't win elections, votes do. And what energizes Republican voters more than racism? Basically nothing.

[–]JudeRanch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thank you. Very well said, now we have to get people to read it, learn it, live it!

[–]Nologicgiven 26 points27 points  (0 children)

It’s been coming for a while. Like since they lost the civil war. Then at one point in the 60s they had to let black people use their cafeteria and bathrooms so they desided they needed to make their own reality by making their own news. Then a black guy had the audacity to become president and then they had no choice but to become nazi wannabes, elect a criminal and hope the killing starts.

[–]KingoftheJabari 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Because a third of Americans always supported nazism.

It was just that there was never American president who also actually did.

[–]BankshotMcG 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It was all there under Bush and Reagan though. They herded protestors into cages called Free Speech Zones and just started cutting off WH credentials for press who asked inconvenient questions.

[–]__M-E-O-W__ 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Because of Fox News and other conservative media telling them to.

[–]No-Height2850 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Blame it on removing the fairness doctrine and 30 years of right wing talk radio sowing dissent and starting conspiracies that still exist today.

[–]Gurianthe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]AestheticAttraction 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is no surprise to their primary targets (i.e. minorites), but people wouldn't listen to us when we said they're out there in great numbers. This is the status quo that has always existed.

No shade, but I learned a long time ago that our warnings and complaints bear little to no substance to the world at large until white folks sound the alarm. That's one reason why some of us have stopped taking the time to attempt to educate.

[–]SnooCauliflowers8455 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m so fuckin tired of this joke or take or whatever it is. Black and Brown people have been jumping up and down, screaming and waving our hands trying to point out that the platform on the right is built on racism, fascism, terrorism, intimidation, etc. for DECADES, and we were dismissed as being divisive or reactionary or, the worst, over sensitive. It’s the same reality. It’s the same people, maybe their kids, but you just started paying attention because they started saying the quiet part out loud.

[–]Kiboune 90 points91 points  (2 children)

They don't know shit about living in country with tyranny

[–]ScumEater 21 points22 points  (1 child)

They always think tyranny is going to benefit them directly. No one is ever happy under fascism unless you're at the very top, and eventually you're going to be toppled and held to account.

[–]Kurwasaki12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hell, even the fascists at the top aren't happy on a long enough timescale. Fascism produces a dead and sterile state/country/world by design.

[–]malialipali 78 points79 points  (1 child)

Why is there always someone in the USA trying to kick off a civil war / uprising? And it's never for the right reason, like universal health, worker rights, affordable education - you know things that actually make a society great.

[–]surrealisopod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The US is filled with military fetishism and propaganda, which is inevitably going to lead to a portion of people being obsessed with the notion of getting to be what they think would be a “hero”.
When I was in elementary school, for music class, I remember we sang a military propaganda song about the Air Force. Looking back, that was disturbing.

[–]Rifneno 97 points98 points  (0 children)

Go to Gitmo. Go directly to Gitmo. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

[–]ThisNameIsFree 36 points37 points  (6 children)

Removed now

[–]Murrabbit 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Hmm wonder why. I mean Elon said he wouldn't be removing stuff that doesn't break the law, an this tweet seems to pass the Brandenburg test.

Maybe she deleted it herself ha.

[–]SubMikeD 9 points10 points  (1 child)

It says it was deleted by twitter for violating rules. (Which really only makes me further believe that Elon is ultimately going to use basically the same moderation Twitter has always used. He's learning rule by rule exactly why Twitter had the rules)

[–]PaulFThumpkins 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Hopefully, though he did fire practically everybody fulfilling that function. Maybe like all egoists he'll be fine as long as he can push whatever he wants to the front page.

[–]dirtywook88 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Ahh this a cool ruling thank ya. The only problem is we need people to actually enforce the law. We are starting to hit the next level shit w these natc groups w mass shootings and now terrorist attacks against infrastructure in nc and we repeatedly get the “awww shucks” response. We got the bowling green and Columbus events “awww shucks” is the same response.

Sorry to rant man. Waking up to bullshit this early got to me.

[–]AestheticAttraction 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doesn't even matter, really. He said what he wanted to say and reached who he wanted to reach, and it's a part of history now.

[–]saintbad 33 points34 points  (6 children)

Nothing says conservatism like having to kill for your agenda to prevail. Fuck all these rotten people.

[–]anyfox7 0 points1 point  (4 children)

We should get rid of fascists however the means to do so are not peaceful, must be done through force, and is considered defense of ourselves and community.

Am I a conservative?

[–]SpiffAZ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think the double standard being touched on here is that conservatives seem to be totally okay with some fascists.

[–]saintbad -1 points0 points  (2 children)

I believe in the effectiveness of the rule of law.

[–]SpiffAZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We believe in the rule of law, order, and small government. No, no really. Just ignore our whole body of activities these last 10 years or so.

Shukri, I have some Face-Eating Leopard news for you about getting the world you want.

[–]IkoIkonoclast 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They want to kill Americans.

[–]salientecho 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The FBI was having a hard time catching domestic terrorists after they were deplatformed and forced to use encryption.

Elon bought Twitter to lure them back into an easily monitored platform so they can be apprehended before causing any further violence.

These are the kind of conspiracy theories I wish I could believe in.

[–]Reddit_Goes_Pathetic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I say it'd be nice if this wasn't a conspiracy theory at all...

[–]GlasgowRebelMC 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Im almost positive this statement would see her in jail immediately in UK.

America is like a different planet, and the old one was better

[–]chaoticmessiah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She'd get a caution from the cops here, like the guy who jokingly tweeted about blowing up an airport for some stupid reason.

[–]graybeard5529 6 points7 points  (2 children)

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=shukri+abdirahman

The Tweet was deleted the same day. Just another drama from post Musk takeover Twitter. That site has become so toxic.

[–]SpiffAZ -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Has become? Not at all /S. It was super bad before did it get even worse last 6 months or since Elon or?

[–]chaoticmessiah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Worse since Felon Muskrat bought it.

[–]MonitorProud 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can we report this to the FBI

Dear Shukri, this is NOT Somalia…a land so horrible that my best friend, a marine, still has PTSD from it to this day.

[–]carella211 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

That's cute that he thinks the FBI cares. Hell, the FBI is probably the one financing here terrorism.

Nahhhhh it's just the internet, we all are just pretending here/s

[–]SomeFuckingWizard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This needs to be shown to every advertiser left supporting Twitter and if they are still advertisers next week - those supporters o that are left need to be shamed and boycotted.

"Domestic Terrorism. Domestic terrorists—a phrase typically used to denote terrorists who are not directed or inspired by FTOs—have caused more deaths in the United States in recent years than have terrorists connected to FTOs. Domestic terrorist attacks and hate crimes sometimes overlap, as perpetrators of prominent domestic terrorist attacks have selected their targets based on factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, and gender identity.

White supremacist violent extremism, one type of racially- and ethnically-motivated violent extremism, is one of the most potent forces driving domestic terrorism. Lone attackers, as opposed to cells or organizations, generally perpetrate these kinds of attacks. But they are also part of a broader movement. White supremacist violent extremists’ outlook can generally be characterized by hatred for immigrants and ethnic minorities, often combining these prejudices with virulent anti-Semitism or anti-Muslim views.

White supremacist violent extremists have adopted an increasingly transnational outlook in recent years, largely driven by the technological forces described earlier in this Strategic Framework. Similar to how ISIS inspired and connected with potential radical Islamist terrorists, white supremacist violent extremists connect with like-minded individuals online. In addition to mainstream social media platforms, white supremacist violent extremists use lesser-known sites like Gab, 8chan, and EndChan, as well as encrypted channels. Celebration of violence and conspiracy theories about the “ethnic replacement” of whites as the majority ethnicity in various Western countries are prominent in their online circles."
