In response to that one person, who wrote a blog post about how the CCC has become too political and how they didn't go to #CCCamp2019 because of an "Antifa or GTFO" atmosphere, I designed these.
Kinda wanna print some t-shirts. Anyone know a good place to do collective orders?
@spacekookie actually I can understand that a bit.
I mean being political is a good thing, but especially the antifa people are more the "fight hate with hate" kind of people and most people who are not into covering their face and throwing stones can feel offplace.
I think there is enough hate in this world, we really don't need antifa where ever we go for some ""political"" statements.
History proven that hate and anger are the least things that improve anything
@Vamp898 lol @ "fight hate with hate". Ah yes, fascists and racists will be won over by kindness.
@fnord @spacekookie @Vamp898 "our" (not or, sorry) neutrality in terms of being impartial, open for every thought and _not_ judging people or opinions by their heritage or speech. See our Hackerethik: "Hackers should be judged by their acting, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race, or position.". And being pro/against antifa is a position.
@rince @spacekookie @Vamp898 Okay, I think we have a problem with the word Antifa here. If you use it in the sense "autonomous left extremists", I agree that it is a position that you shouldn't be forced on. More and more people seem to use the term Antifa in the sense "actively opposing fascism", though. If you are against the latter, I'd very much like you to gtfo.
@Vamp898 @rince @spacekookie Don't get me started about "pro life". 🙂 But that made me think. An anology could be the fire department. It's usually very much anti fire and not so much pro non-burning-things. But they do fire-safety/prevention work, too. So, we actually need both: A way to deal with the fascists that we already have, and a way to prevent new people from becoming fascists. So anti-fascism and pro-tolerance-and-freedom go hand in hand, but they are not the same thing.
That's most definitely a "position" and luckily it's not "neutral". Fascists and their enablers, GTFO.
@fnord @spacekookie That's his tactic as of this moment, yes, but it's not the real problem. Scroll back and read all his nonsense on "neutrality" etc. again. Did he state his clear opposition to fascism anywhere, or what his idea of resistance is? Exactly. Instead, he is "open for every thought", LOL. A typical Hufeisen-Dude. He will do well under any political system. I will never expect solidarity from persons like that. Don't let them slow you down.
