That frogs one is gold.

I don't want to get in the bunker though.

Especially not if your discordia coexists with being violent in order to stop nazis from hurting people. I won't do it, I won't even endorse your actions, though I'm not going to stop you, either.
I'm a pacifist.
That term is loaded with far too much shit, so let me unpack what that means to me. Here, I've re-packaged it into a set of easily digestible bullet points:
I don't like violence.
I'm not going to begrudge anyone for using violence in self-defense or in defense of someone in danger, ESPECIALLY not if the person you hurt is a nazi.
I do not believe in an inherently moral universe.
I do believe that part of why I can tell a nazi to go fuck theirself instead of punching them and get away with it is because of the privilege this unjust society gives me, and understand that that is not necessarily an ability afforded to everyone.
If you punch a nazi, I'm not going to tell you you're a bad person.
When I see nazism being advocated for, I most certainly tell the nazi in question to fuck off. I will continue to do so until the time that they fuck off.
I will fuck with, drown out, and insult nazis all day long.
I am not advocating for everything to be done my way. Like I said, it can't always be done my way.
I endorse all non-violent driving away of nazis, and, like I said, am not going to bitch and moan if some nazis get punched in the process of getting them the fuck out.

I think there's a lot to be said about the role that straight white men can play in rehabilitating and reintegrating the worst of the alt-right and other shitbags. The people being hurt by this stuff are not always in a position to defend themselves at all, and rarely are going to be in a place where they have the spoons to spend de-escalating and educating the people who are actively hurting them right now. I worry that a lot of men mistake this job as being "calm everyone the fuck down" rather than "address and remedy current injustices, and restructure society to diminish future injustice, while converting our current enemies into allies in reconstruction." It's fucking hard work.
