stop overusing the term fascist Anonymous 03/27/2020 (Fri) 13:11:12 No. 400053 [Reply] [Last]
Stop it. STOP. It only plays into the hands of actual fascists. Much like how Bernie has totally muddled the term socialist and has stripped it of all negative connotations, or how republicans scream that everything is marxist, the end result is that when genuine socialists come in everyone won't recognize them because idiots on the right have been screaming about "postmodern cultural marxist globalists" for decades. BUT THIS DE-SENSITIZATION ALSO WORKS IN REVERSE FOR OUR ENEMIES. /pol/tards from 8ch are fascists. Stormniggers are fascists. These people identify openly as neonazis and actually go out to kill their enemies in mass shootings. Here's who ISN'T a fascist: Trump. Boris. Farage. Orban. Whatever christcuck moron is in charge of Poland right now. Even Bolsonaro. >b-b-but they are racist/homophobic/oppressive towards minority groups THAT IS NOT WHAT FASCISM IS YOU FUCKING MORON. EVERY WESTERN DEMOCRACY HAS GENOCIDED NATIVES; OPPRESSING AND EVEN KILLING MINORITIES DOES NOT MAKE A STATE FASCIST. >b-b-but they are authoritarian!!!11 Every political movement is authoritarian in some way. The key sign to look for in determining fascist states is: HAVE THEY ABOLISHED VOTING AND BOURGEOIS DEMOCRACY ALTOGETHER AND KILLED OFF THE SOCIALIST POLITICAL OPPOSITION? If the answer is NO they cannot be genuinely categorized as fascist. Trump is never going to start fucking throwing socialists into death camps because he's a dumbass liberal who bought into the bourgeois democracy meme, NOT AN ACTUAL FASCIST. >b-b-but but these people are sometimes supported by real fascists!!!

>>400253 >You need to define what fascism is, if you don't like people calling present rightoid messiahs fascist The USP of fascism is that it's very, very malleable. The swedish author and italianista Göran Hägg (1947-2015) pointed out that the early fascism was whatever the members of a Ras/local chapter wanted it to be. It could be liberal, socialist or conservative. The rally at Piazza San Sepolcro can be described as an anti-rally. Jews and antisemites and every other imaginable polar opposite met there. The early fascism also had strong feminist undercurrents because it the conservative (bearded) men had closed the door to power for them.

By this logic you would only be able to call h*tler a fascist in 1945 when you could definitively prove and investigate his fascistic crimes and actions, unironically retarded post. I definitely agree that the term fascist is overused and can and is misused, but your criterions for when to use it would cripple any analysis to exclusively post hoc and completely disables us from seeing and calling out creeping fascism. Also you completely ignore the question of power and power relations, the simple fact you seem to think your average poltard is more dangerous than orban or bolsonaro despite the fact they wield so much more power even if /pol/tards are to the right of these world leaders exposes your absolute schizo-level worldview

How did the red army go from having so much trouble in Finland to being able to beat the Nazis in such a short period of time? Was Lend-Lease really that helpful?

>>328991 1) It is an undeniable fact that the USSR only started to regularly receive Lend-Lease in 1943, AFTER the tide-turning battle of Stalingrad, (and the victory at Moscow and the countless battles before that). Britain, meanwhile, recieved a lend-lease of 3x larger an amount. On June 1st 1941 USSR had 25932 tanks and howitzers, 6060 were produced by 31st of December, 1941. 31992 vehicles total. Approximately 20,5K was lost by the end of the year. That means 11,5K tanks left. In 1941 the USSR received 361 tanks, all from Britain, this was approximately 1% of the soviet tank forces on the eve of the battle of Moscow, and none of them took part in the battle. 2) The majority of initial Lend-Lease was made up of stock-excess of the US and the UK army, with old M3s Grants, M3 Stewarts, British Matilda's and older model Spitfires and Hurricanes. These were poorly received by Soviet troops, Matildas did not come with any instruction and thus their different mechanical nature made it hard to even operate, and repairing them was next to impossible. Their guns, whilst powerful in 1939, were harmless to German tanks unless at close ranges, and it's armor no longer could take the hits of German tank guns. The complex track system and narrow tracks made it impossible to use in snow or mud. The M-3 Grant, (the older cousin of the M4 Sherman), was better in mobility and simplicity but at the cost of being a completely obsolete garbage can of a tank and the soviet troops hated them. From Stephen Zaloga's "Red Army Handbook": "One of the less popular lend-lease designs provided to the USSR was the M3 Lee medium tank, the ancestor of the better and more successful M4 Sherman. Its archaic design and turreted 37mm gun and its thin armor led to its caustic Russian nickname, which translates as "a coffin for seven brothers". The M4 Sherman variant used by the USSR was a happy accident, and even then one that required modification. The M4A2 sent was equipped with a diesel engine, not a gasoline one. Diesels were only used by the Marines in the US Armed forces, they were thus a big pain in the neck for the US army, until they decided to send them to the USSR. They were fitted with extended end connectors (The envy of Normandy M4s, struggling in the bocages right after D-Day) and sent to special formations such as the 9th tank division. Sherman Tank Pt 2: Improvements From D-Day To V-E Day 1944-45 Hero of the Soviet Union, Dmitriy Loza provides some insight, although, because he never actually served with T 34s his ability to compare is limited, and he disregards the extended end connectors. Dmitriy Loza) A similar, but rare story is of the Air-Cobra. The plane was considered uncompleted and with numerous production flaws by the British and sent to the USSR. The main issue was its inability to perform well above 15,000 feet, making its original role as an interceptor, useless. It's heavy cannon made it prefect for ground attack and the low-level dog-fights of the Eastern front however, and thus it was a unintended boon for the VVS and became the most liked foreign fighter of WW 2 in the USSR. Lets just compare the goods USSR received from the Lend Lease to the goods they manufactured on their own:

We did a good job, that's a lot of stuff to produce and bring to a country on the other side of the world during a maritime war effort; but that's barely 10% of Soviet production*, and it most certainly did not win the war. *(The war was decided in the winter of 1941, before the first American trade arrived.) For more precise numbers: Aircraft Production Soviet Union: 1942: 18,251 plus 4,042 lend-lease 1943: 34,637 plus 9,206 lend-lease 1943: 33,210 plus 6,459 lend-lease Germany: 1942: 17,400

>>404538 Don't be aggressive. Yes assertiveness can be attractive, but don't fall for the incel meme about women only liking bad boys. If you aren't confident about how to date then you have no chance of pulling it off, it's best just to be yourself (lol). In terms of dating my biggest mistakes was not breaking stuff off soon enough with one girl, you got to ask yourself what you really want and be real, rather than just a slave to pussy. Do your hobbies, put yourself into social situations where you get opportunity and something will occur eventually.
This thread is a good window into what is wrong with a lot of the online "left".

К примеру его пост о том что 'СССР всё с запада копировал' был опровержен. Но что тут сказать о человеке который в серёз Ник Лэнда принемает. EDUCATION in the USSR Читай: [i]"In 1983, the United States Commission on Excellence in Education published A Nation at Risk: The Imperative for Education Reform, in which it said that in regards to education, Americans were falling behind Russia."[/i] https://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/when-father-modern-american-education-thought-soviet-schools-were-best-example/ [i]"Before the Revolution, 76% of the people were illiterate, including 88%of the women. Virtually complete illiteracy prevailed among the indigenous populations of Siberia and Soviet Central Asia. Indeed, more than 40 languages had not been reduced to writing at all. Prior to the revolution, only 290,000 Russians possessed any kind of higher education, whereas the 1959 census reported that more than 13 Million citizens had some higher or specialized secondary education, and more than 45 million people had 7-10 years of education....Raising the literacy rate from 24% to 98.5% within the span of a single generation for more than 200 million people would be an achievement in itself if only one language were involved, to say nothing of the severe problems posed by a multilingual society...To detail the massive character of the Soviet educational effort in Central Asia, the Uzbek Republic, which is the most advanced of the Central Asian areas today, as it was in pre-Revolutionary Russia, provides an apt illustration. Before the Revolution, only 2% of the population was literate. There were no native engineers, doctors, or teachers with a higher education. In short, Central Asia was no different in this respect from most of the colonial dependencies of the European powers, and worse off than many.Today, in the Uzbek Republic alone, there are 32 institutions of higher learning, more than 100 technicums, 50 special technical schools, 12 teachers' colleges, and 1400 kindergartens. Nearly 2,500,000 children attend school, and more than 50% of its teachers have had some higher education...The rate of literacy is over 95%. The Republic before the Revolution possessed no public libraries: today there are nearly 5,000. The number of books printed in the Uzbek language in 1913 was 118,000; today it approaches 19 million. When this record is compared with that of Iran, Afghanistan, the Arab countries, the states of Southeast Asia, or even Turkey, all of which were at a comparable or more advanced level of educational attainment in 1914, the achievement is impressive...”[/i] - Vernon V.

Japan has been ruled for more than sixty years by the croniest party in the capitalist world, except for two or three years when a motley crew of renegades from that party got into government to quickly hand it back to usual supects. It's an ossified, gerontocratic, bureaucratic society if there is one on this planet and not only hoping but also advocating for any kind of "change" over there is wrong, because it'd be something inevitably doomed to fail and fall back to the same old shit. Japan is possibly more cucked than Burgerland and the Anglosphere in general, and that should tell you something. It's the embodiment of every possible stereotype about a Far Eastern hierarchical and sclerotised society. Don't get fooled by fancy shamcy animu, mango, j-pop and vidya and JAV estethics. France and Spain have well developed high-speed railway networks too, so don't give me that shpiel. As things stand, it's just a natural aircraft carrier close to Russia, China and Korea and completely subservient to Burgerland, whose military personnel have a free hand in harrassing, raping and murdering local women and walking out scott-free. That said, I hope one day based Kim will nuke the shit out of Abe, the LDP, the inbred emperor and his ungodly spawn. Also, I hope the Olympic Games won't even take place next year and Nip-porky will cry so hard. The fuckers have already endangered thousands of foreign visitors last year by organising a rugby world cup right in the typhoon season. >>385009 Some fuckers should cleanse their mouths with a highly concentrated bleach solution before they even contemplate talking about Cuba, which is sending doctors to "first world" countries right now, while Nippo-Lippo turbocapitalist shithole let dozens of passengers of a cruise ship die because they didn't want them to even set foot on land otherwise it would have jeopardised muh Olymbigs. >>344778 Fuck off, wacko. If you think plutonium riddled animals are some kind of a "nature reservoire", you need your head to be checked.
>>344715 >principally anti-nuclear Which is retarded since expansion of nuclear power production is needed to quickly replace fossil fuels in order to limit the severity of climate change. The problem here is not about nuclear but about capitalists ignoring safety standards.

>>401238 Hi, just throwing in my 2 cents: >I don't have womanly feelings or a womanly personality Without personally knowing you or being able to observe you that's a questionable statement. Most people have a hard time seeing themselves from side perspective and will often be unobjective in their self-assessment. Moreover by the mere fact of being biologicl female - unless you have an underlying condition - your brain develops slightly differently, which lets you be more empathetic than a male brain but simultaneously makes you more emotional as well. For each individual, male or female, there are varying levels between the two, but generally 99% of people are roughly on their respective male or female mentalities. Gender dysphoria is a massive outlier of the human population, and is when a physically female person develops a masculine brain or vice versa, due to environmental factors (usually either through something that affected the parents, the baby or the person when they grow up).
>>405068 This is exactly what I mean when I say that trans ideology is pretty sexist. Being female has nothing to do with being empathetic and/or emotional. Fuck off with that shit. It's gender essentialism.

>In Nazi Germany, Hitler went after the Jews (less than 1 percent of the population), Communists, and Social Democrats, but in the USSR Stalin savaged his own loyal elites across the board. To be sure, the greater number of victims were ordinary Soviet people, but what regime liquidates colossal numbers of loyal officials? Could Hitler— had he been so inclined—have compelled the imprisonment or execution of huge swaths of Nazi factory and farm bosses, as well as almost all Nazi provincial Gauleiters and their staffs, several times over? Could he have executed the personnel of Nazi central ministries, thousands of his Wehrmacht officers— including almost his entire high command—as well as the Reich’s diplomatic corps and its espionage agents, its celebrated cultural figures, and the leadership of Nazi parties throughout the world (had such parties existed)? Could Hitler also have decimated the Gestapo even while it was carrying out a mass bloodletting? >And could the German people have been told, and would the German people have found plausible, that almost everyone who had come to power with the Nazi revolution turned out to be a foreign agent and saboteur? >Even among ideological dictatorships, Communism stands out How do you reply to this?
