@takeonrules back in my day we just sprayed "nazi punks fuck off" on the garage door and called it a day, but i can see this approach having its merits :D
(This is 100% a joke about how this is essentially that same action just more verbose, which I think makes it a more appropriate action that spraypainting something, in this situation.)
@emsenn We need both! The immediacy of "Fuck off you Nazis" and sustained effort to say "We're watching and vigilant, and will call out Nazi shit"
@takeonrules You're not wrong but there's actually a lot of history and purpose between calling for nazis to fuck off and for nazi punks to fuck off, and i think the latter is what you're doing.
@takeonrules they are, and it's them who are the real threat at this moment in time, i think, which is why i should probably highlight the difference!
(I have a tab open of a piece to work against to explain this, but want to take notes on that unsettling archaeology webinar i watched yesterday first.)
It is time to stop Ecological and economic genocide upon people of color. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized development in "blocks" of colonizer cash infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for any white dudes as a "Chief" Executive Officer. Get out of here and fix the problems plaguing Europe before trying to kill the indigenoUS Earth.
