This is National Socialist tier shit, and it makes me really quite uncomfortable. It's not okay to commit reputational murder because of guilt by association.
trumpaccountability.net/ And it's not okay to make fucking lists of political targets. Is this progress?

holding people accountable for their actions is NAZI? Ok...
@musicman @sullybiker Are all the people on the list in policymaking positions? Most such lists are poorly researched and then religiously enforced. They are a sort of intolerance that is ultimately destructive, because it makes people afraid to make any decisions at all.
See, for example, #fediblock on an AP-enabled instance. In fact, the whole #blockwars thing is really fascistic.

@lnxw48a1 @musicman There is also a question of motivation. Is it accountability or revenge? In the case of history (especially the purges and the great terror) it can start the former but usually becomes the latter.

@musicman Despite all the bullshit, this is still a free country. People can vote for and support whoever they please.

As for your question, Post-Weimar Germany this is precisely how political opponents were persecuted, and eventually - because these things always grow - ordinary people.

Wikipedia has lists? Are they NAZI?

Is the site advocating killing people? If not, then you are being ridiculous to the extreme.

@musicman That's rather obtuse. And they're not advocating for killing people...yet.

yes, in post-Weimar Germany Internet stes were "precisely how political opponents were persecuted". Just listen to yourself. Go mediate. you are going to blow a gasket.
I'll level with ya. Let me know when there's a .gov attacking opponents. Then you can say "I told you so".

Biden has made his career as a centrist. Maybe you're talking something longer term (I think myopic would have been a better word choice than obtuse, but whatever).

But seriously, all the finger pointing and ridiculous rhetoric on both sides needs to stop.

@musicman I think Biden's point of view is a lot more moderate. I hope that carries the day. He's already starting well.

@musicman That's fair enough. Thanks for keeping it civil.
