The word “Nazi” is literally the most misused word in the English language. Except for the word “literally.” The siren song of the left is to call anyone who disagrees with them a Nazi. Leftists are also the worst abusers of the word “literally.” I don’t think that’s a coincidence.
Calling everyone a Nazi has caught the anger of Jonathan Pie (see NAILED IT: British Satirist Slams ‘Snowflake’ Students Who Hate Free Speech… and Hammer Meet Nail: Internet ‘Satirist’ Rants About Why Americans Hate Liberalism).
My favorite line:
A Nazi is not someone who believes the ideology of Islam has some dodgy bits.
I wanted to follow this with a .gif of Natalie from Love Actually talking about living in the dodgy end. Sadly, the internet failed me.
Here’s the thing about Pie: I’m fairly certain the comedian isn’t going to be asked to speak at CPAC soon. As far as I can tell he’s anti-Brexit, anti-Trump, and I’m fairly sure he and I have different opinions about gun rights. The same can be said about Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson, albeit with different issues. But because the left, which Pie admits to being a member of, has gotten so batsh!t crazy, it’s creating allies where there normally wouldn’t have been allies. Mainly people who do not endorse batsh!t crazy.
In the olden days, we could agree on economics while disagreeing on social issues. It was an excuse for Republicans from New York and Texas to find common ground. But I’m sensing a trend that people from all ideologies are switching to disagreeing on policy as long as we line up on the same side of the culture war: I can disagree with you on effective health care policy, as long as we’re allies on the First Amendment.
Agree? Think I’m trying too hard? Comment below.
