After all nothing creates real oppression like holding a party using fictional themes from a bad book....


First World Problems.....
Eggzackerley!

It's like being offended by someone having a Star Wars themed party because it's seen as celebrating the oppressive Galactic Empire which in today's clownworld is seen as tacit Nazi support.

How far does the pendulum have to swing before it heads back in the direction of sanity?

Didn't you know that Star Wars is racist and a symbol of black oppression?

 
True, however one of the principle differences between Nazism and 'vanilla' fascism, is that (to my knowledge) non of the other mainstream 20th century fascist regimes, is that only Nazism had a clear policy objective to eliminate Jews from their dominion
Only if you limit it for fascism, if you widen to plain old fashioned racism the net is a bit wider

In fact this should be a holding post for our dear Russian trolls to lecture you about the Russian pogroms

Anti-Jewish pogroms in the Russian Empire (Russian: Еврейские погромы в России; Hebrew: הסופות בנגב‎ ha-sufot ba-negev; lit. "the storms in the South") were large-scale, targeted, and repeated anti-Jewish rioting that first began in the 19th century.

Pogroms began occurring after the Russian Empire, which previously had very few Jews, acquired territories with large Jewish populations from the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth during 1791–1835. These territories were designated "the Pale of Settlement" by the Imperial Russian government, within which Jews were reluctantly permitted to live, and it was within them that the pogroms largely took place.

Most Jews were forbidden from moving to other parts of the Empire, unless they converted to the Russian Orthodox state religion.

And here was me thinking the first two star wars films were thinly disguised interpretations of the plucky settlers in the US fighting back against the tyrannical Brits for independence. Especially the second one where the Empire strikes back.....

Totally agree on the racism bit, but AFAIK only the Nazis had a state policy of deliberate, targeted genocide from which there was no legitimate means of escape, as opposed to just creating the conditions where millions of Kulaks would perish unless they could re-invent themselves as good party apparatchiks.

Even Franco and Mussolini didn't round up the Jews

I thought Avatar was an analogy for the the destruction of the American Indians way of life.
 
Mussolini wasn't exactly theirs friends either, nor Franco really either

New findings contradict the conventional belief that Italians began to enforce anti-Semitic laws only after German troops occupied the country in 1943, and then reluctantly. In a spate of studies, many of them based on a little-publicized Italian government report commissioned in 1999, researchers have uncovered a vast wartime record detailing a systematic disenfranchisement of Italy’s Jews, beginning in the summer of 1938, shortly before the Kristallnacht attacks in November.

That year, Mussolini’s Fascist government forbade Jewish children to attend public or private schools, ordered the dismissal of Jews from professorships in all universities, and banned Jews from the civil service and military as well as the banking and insurance industries.

No but in a previous episode the Spanish (1492) and the English (1290) expelled all the Jews
 
We can't be too far off it now. There's no such thing as just having an opinion anymore, everything is absolute black and white to these cretins and the hypocrisy of those spouting tolerance and free speech is absolutely staggering. It used to be something that was widely accepted in American politics, either republic or democrat, no in between with the other side being the devil incarnate. I first really noticed it here with the Scottish independence vote, the bile and vitriol spouted by both sides was an embarrassment. Now we see it with just about everything, Brexit being the most notable example.

But to answer your first question, I think it does, the idea that anyone can have an opinion other than their own is a complete anathema to them. Likely because they've been brought up thinking this, we have a generation largely composed of spoiled self entitled children masquerading as adults coming behind us and we are utterly fucked....
We deserve it.

After the cringing embarrassment of "The Diana Effect", the country's degeneration into widespread emotional incontinence has been inevitable.

And it's not just the drippy, weepy, facebooky emotions that rampage unchecked; there's an undercurrent of barely checked malevolence over some public issues.
 
Scientists in Ozz tried to do so.
Australian Aboriginals show the same mix of DNA as the rest of us.
Black Africans are the 'purest', if you want to look at it like that. Europeans contain 3-4% Neanderthal DNA, East Asians contain Denisovan DNA as well. IIRC that includes Australoids like Southern Indians, Pacific islanders and Australian Aborigines.
 
And it reaches its logical conclusion when we saw, making our slightly merry way through Lausanne at dead of night - 1 am, an obedient Swiss citizen waiting for the pedestrian light to change to green. There was not a soul or motor car stirring within a mile.
The other side of that coin is, once the pedestrian light goes green, they have absolute priority.
The same goes for normal zebra crossings. Pedestrians have right of way and will, therefore, step off into the road without looking.
Concentration required when driving in town round here -not far from Lausanne as it happens.

According to my missus that is 50% with me.
