Is that it ? Is that the only thing you can come up with to defend this incitement to mass murder ? No "It was a holocaust joke" ? No "it's OK because it's coming from the left and we're all oppressed and fighting back with the meager weapons we have at our disposal" ? Nothing about NAZIS !!!111!!1! ?

Damn, I'm disappointed.

We'll just chalk that up as another vote to gas the people you perceive as racists then.

@Stout

If you are familiar with uke2se's posting style, then you'll know that "the final solution to the racist question" is pretty obviously his dark humour coming to the fore - again.


Your poutrage is just another example of the duplicity of the right, where they are only ever "just joking"TM when they are called on their crap, but the left never are.

So a vote for "just joking" and dark humour. Good, good.

It's getting kind of hard to maintain that moral superiority angle though, with jokes like that being excused but if all I need to do to get away with telling Holocaust jokes is put on a Che Guevara T-shirt then I might just have a new standup routine.

Reverse the targets and your post is shockingly Jones esque.

I suspected that "final solution" was dark humour but I wasn't aware that uke2se was fond of Poe'ing.

Ironically, that kind of posting might not pass muster on Facebook. In fact, it might even see him subjected to a "final solution" himself if some posters here had their way. Then again, probably not since it only matters who the hatred is directed against around here.

This.

The lack of self awareness of some posters is amazing. They have abandoned universal values for tribalism, and yet tell themselves that they are the good guys.

Horsecock! The targets are the same, left or right.

I'm just has happy to see Louis Farrakhan and Antifa deplatformed as am to see Alex Jones and Nazis deplatformed. I'm politically left of centre - I regard the extreme loony left as counterproductive and an embarrassment.

You think "Facebook doesn't want to host your vile racism = Facebook kicking you in the nuts"

Got it!
