    A tale of two tweets: TPU's blatant hypocrisy

    This is from Turning Point USA, a shitlord culture war outlet that pushes far right rhetoric online.

    I think it's the perfect illustration of the way the alt right tries to have its cake and eat it too.

    It never ceases to entertain me when I see the people who loudly deride others as snowflakes throw a huge fit when they feel they're being insulted or attacked.

    The Ok sign has nothing to do with white supremacy, some loon from Wapo or Buzzfeed claiming it does is irrelevant.

    Like the left has for decades now?

    The funniest part is that TPU's content, despite their target audience, is familiar with upper-middle-aged to older (white) men.

    The OK sign has clearly been co-opted by White Supremacists, even though it started as a troll. Don't be silly.


    OT:

    TPUSA are so hilariously self-contradictory. Charlie Kirk is a walking meme.

    Why are you using far right? Why not just right? Why not just conservative. Do you even know what far right is? What is "right" to you? Also is it blatent hypocrisy? Maybe hes right on both tweets. Maybe no one is oppressed or as oppressed living in america as compared to other societies and maybe colleges are oppressing conservatives. But you can easily escape college oppression by not attending certain colleges, meanwhile america as a whole isnt trying to oppress you.

    This is a very weak rebuttal. It kinda implies you gave up and dont care about what is right or wrong anymore.
    We are often struck down easily. However no matter how often beaten, we can't forget the joy we felt during the dispute. The pleasure of stretching our willpower. The pleasure of trying out our own strength. The pleasure of seeing a manifestation of real comradely emotions among friends. The pleasure of seeing the world clearly split into camps of foes and friends. The pleasure of seeing an improvement in our own personality. by Sakae Osugi

    So his tweets aren't consistent? Not a big deal.

    You should try to understand the other side's point of view, if for nothing more than to be able to rebut them.

    Explain to me the context of how the OK sign is relevant to white supremacy, right after explaining what white supremacy even is.

    Yeah, that's still the rule, I think. A lot of my more "bro-y" friends from high school still joke about it.

    White supremacy is thinking your idea of “whiteness” is above all other races/cultures Just by being “white”. It’s ideas like the white mans burden where only the “white” people are the only ones advanced enough to lead the dumber races, or ideas like having interracial kids deludes your blood line. White is of course in quotes as different white supremace groups have different views on what it means to be white like Jews not counting for example.

    Now as to where the ok sigh comes in that would be how people in such a group sign to each other. Things like the Nazi salute and the swastika weren’t made by the Nazis but the Nazis took them and made them part of there group. White supremace have done the same thing with the ok sign and other things while those things may still have there original meaning just like the swastika that doesn’t mean they aren’t used as signs for white supremacy as well.

    I mean, sure, it illustrates your point well. But aren't there better and more relevant illustrations for it than two tweets from April 2018 and November 2015 from some minor group's twerp?
