We Don't Want To Hurt Any Nazis' Feelings...

Postby Lord Jim » Sat Jan 05, 2019 3:08 pm

You really can't make this shit up, non-Trump category:

UMass Says You Can't Say 'Fuck Nazis' Because It's Not Inclusive

Image

For a lot of students, college is where you figure out what interests you, discover your passions, and in some cases become a vocal advocate for the causes you believe in.

Freedom of speech is the very basis of our civil liberties, and nowhere should that be championed more than on college campuses.

Unfortunately, one college has decided that free speech is only welcome when it isn’t making the campus racists feel uncomfortable.

Nicole Parsons, a student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, told BuzzFeed that there has been a wave of hate crimes on her school’s campus. She said the school had been mostly silent about the incidents. When a swastika was drawn over a “Happy Hanukkah” sign that a resident assistant had on their door during the first week of December, Parsons decided she had had enough.

She hung a sign in her dormitory window that said: “FUCK NAZIS YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE.”

“I thought maybe if I hang the sign up, maybe the person who drew the swastika will see it and see someone condemning their actions, even if the administration doesn’t do it,” Parsons said.

Whether or not the person who drew the swastika saw her sign is unknown, but it definitely caught the eye of Eddie Papazoni, one of the residence directors on campus.

Papazoni sent Parsons an email regarding the sign that went as follows:

Hi Nicole,

My name is Eddie Papazoni, and I am one of the Residence Directors at UMass Amherst and currently the RD On-Call for east side. I have tried to contact you on your phone around 4:15 PM but the number listed was your home phone and I was unable to leave a message on that machine. With that being said, I am emailing you today in regards to a phone call I received concerning a sign that is placed in your window.

From this conversation it appears to be that the sign in mention can be paraphrased as: “Nazis are not welcome here.” Though this sign is permitted under Freedom of Speech, I would also like to discuss the impact on the community that this sign has had. There are some in the community who have expressed that the sign should be taken down as it has created mixed emotions in the community on how to proceed, issues of inclusion, and the ability to be active members of their community. [WTF is that gobbledygook supposed to mean? :shrug ]

While Residence Education cannot force you or your roommate to take the sign down, I am asking that you or your roommate take the sign down so that all students can be a part of an inclusive residential experience, as well as having a respectful environment to be a part of here on our campus.


Parsons, who is white, told BuzzFeed: “I was in absolute shock. This email tells me the university cares more about the feelings of Nazis than the safety of their students.”

BuzzFeed notes that UMass has a campus initiative called “Hate Has No Home at UMass” that purports to reject “all forms of bigotry and hatred.” Tracking hate crime incidents is part of that initiative, and there have been 19 such incidents on campus since September.

The university did not respond to BuzzFeed’s request for comment, but a Dec. 20 post described Papazoni’s email as “poorly worded”[Ya think?] and said it did “not reflect the values of the campus, and it should not have been sent.”

“UMass Amherst emphatically rejects Nazis, and any other hate group, a view expressed in the students’ sign. However, we are sensitive to the use of profanity, which some could find inappropriate. The university respects the students’ right to display the sign and it may remain up.”

One has to wonder how the email got sent in the first place if it didn’t reflect what the university believes.

Papazoni specifically addressed the issue of calling out Nazis and said it was that part that was making people uncomfortable. He never mentioned profanity or the word “fuck” specifically.

So, is it “Oochie Wally,” or is it “One Mic,” UMass?

Also, who complained about the sign? Who said it was making them uncomfortable? Who felt excluded by it?

Make any of this make sense.

In the end, Parsons told BuzzFeed she removed the sign out of respect for her roommate, who was concerned with the attention it was drawing.[She should replace it with a sign that says "Fuck Morons"...That way the garbanzo who wrote the email could feel "included"]

Mr. Putzazoni has provided an excellent example of where this snowflake protecting "safe space" crapola on college campuses can lead... :loon :loon :loon

WTF does that mean? I think the meaning is clear. In the community that is Amherst, any mental stimulation that might provoke complex thinking and emotions are undesirable. Can't have emotions mixing. Must maintain simple binary thoughts at all times. Must never have any confusion as to how to proceed, who is included, ability to be active. Must always be in mental, emotional lock-step. You know, like the goals of Fascism.

I've always thought of neo-Nazis as vicious, ignorant, mentally disturbed thugs, but it turns out they are actually quite sensitive and delicate souls...

Who knew?

'Crying Nazi' pleads guilty to assault in Charlottesville; banned from Virginia



A self-professed white nationalist involved in violence at last year's rally in Charlottesville, Virginia pleaded guilty to assault and battery Friday, prosecutors said.

Christopher Cantwell was arrested after August's "Unite the Right" rally. Cantwell, who was featured in a Vice News documentary about the demonstrations, became known as the "crying Nazi" after posting an emotional video when an warrant was issued for his arrest.

I wonder if this guy is his gay brother that the Nazi family members have disowned.

:roll: Obviously, some people think she might be suggesting that they engage in sex with Nazis, which would of course be quite emotion-mixing, and gross.
People who are wrong are just as sure they're right as people who are right. The only difference is, they're wrong.

Thank you Scooter for that You Tube link. Once more the led is buried. ( 18 seconds) I learned here that Britney has two children who are fucking. Does that make Britney a trafficker in child porn?

We need to stop being offended about what Nazis did. Auschwitz was closed over 70 years ago, get over it.

Good one, Scooter. Any Nazi that became a comedian after the war should have been given a break.

Yeah, if only Adolf Eichmann had been asked to host the Oscars, maybe Israel could have been made to forget about prosecuting him for war crimes.

You mean like Oskar Schendler?

Oskar Schindler

Industrialist
Oskar Schindler was a German industrialist and amember of the Nazi Party who is credited with saving the lives of 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust by employing them in his enamelware and ammunitions factories in occupied Poland and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. He is the subject of the 1982 novel Schindler's Ark and its 1993 film
When I was a young man I left a well-paying job to take part in the fight against a growing evil. At first, I favored being a trigger puller myself, I liked tanks. To appease my terrified mother I compromised and joined the air force..

Oh Jim, I think you are faking because the point is not that hard: People are complicated even Nazis or commies or even liberals. The best way to judge people is not by what they are, but by what they do. You say that all Nazis are evil, but Schindler was a Nazi was he evil? He saved the lives of hundreds of Jews at considerable risk to himself. If the Nazi authorities had learned what he was up to he would have been sent to a death camp himself. Only the simple minded like greasy “Shit For Brains” sees the world in absolute terms of black and white.

I never said that all liberals are evil. But will you or will you not defend a liberal regardless of the circumstances? Liberals are bigoted in favor liberals; Bill Clinton and Obama could do no wrong.

You're right, lib. If only Hitler had stuck to building the autobahns and making the trains run on time, he could have retired to making fart jokes on open mike night at the Munich bierkeller. Talk about a wasted (DYSWIDT?) opportunity.

Jim said that ALL Nazis were "evil"? Since you remember it so clearly, I'm sure you will have no problem pointing us to where he posted that.

It's probably in the same thread where rubato called polygamy a sin.
That's "Mr. Faggot" to you.
