It’s become popular for some people to call anyone they disagree a Nazi. The problem is, a Nazi is a real thing. Nazis existed in Germany from 1933 to 1945. They killed millions of people and caused the world’s last major world war.
Nazis, real Nazis, don’t exist today because millions of people got together and fought them on the battlefields of western and eastern Europe. Soldiers, sailors, and airman from the United States, Britain, the Soviet Union, and other countries fought and killed real Nazis. A good many of them gave their lives making sure Nazis didn’t triumph
Today, we live in a world free of Nazis. How do we show thanks to the veterans who defeated the Nazis? Some people call anyone whose opinions they don’t agree with Nazis.
It’s like World War Two never happened.
Even when Nazis existed, not every racist, even if they were white, was a Nazi. The problem is, the word racist has been bandied about so casually for so long, it lost its power. Calling someone a racist isn’t good enough anymore.
Some people on Twitter have taken advantage of Twitter’s new character limit to virtue signal against the social media giant. They want Twitter to ban all of the Nazis. Wil Wheaton is one of those people. He changed his name from Wil Wheaton to Wil ‘stop enabling the Nazis’ Wheaton.
It’s 2017. Not only does Wil Wheaton believe Nazis are still a thing, he thinks Twitter is enabling them.
Eradicating Nazism from planet Earth is one of the greatest accomplishments our country’s veterans ever accomplished. People like Wil Wheaton are completely tone-deaf to this fact this Veterans Day weekend. In their world, not only do Nazis still exist, Twitter is enabling them.
They would want you to believe Nazis are goosestepping all over Twitter.
The funny thing is if it were up to people like Wil Wheaton to defeat Nazi Germany during World War Two, the entire world would be speaking German right now.
