Goldfish[edit]

The reference is a slur on goldfish - who have a longer memory span than most people who seem to think, and being originally illegal immigrants (without even pet passports) totally unsuited to the DS. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 17:21, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Good find. Actually, the article text was doubly wrong — not only is extraordinarily poor goldfish memory a myth, the article even read "attention span of goldfish" — despite the fact that the old goldfish saying wasn't ever about goldfish having poor attention span (but poor memory). Double fail. Thanks for pointing this out, I've fixed it. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:32, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
The 'who' in my previous statement is superfluous (in many, but not all) cases. I have nothing personal against goldfish (let alone 'whatever the Reagan quote was') - they are decorative (unlike the viewpoint of DS-ers). 82.44.143.26 (talk) 17:47, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
Once again, I have trouble understanding what you mean. But you seem nice. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:58, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
'have a longer memory span than most people seem to think...', a half remembered Ronald Reagan quote about not being at war with the fish, and being negative about those consuming the website.
I go for 'UK laconic comments' (and it is convenient to be nice - including to the person offered red velvet cake). 82.44.143.26 (talk) 18:30, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
Still really confused here — though I believe the quote which you refer to was actually said by Bush, not Reagan. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 19:37, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
I was noting that I had put in an extra word in the original comment (and also noting that the incorrect version made sense). Quotes encountered long ago do tend to get reassigned; the red velvet cake reference can be found on the Red Room talk page. 82.44.143.26 (talk) 15:47, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

Bronze?[edit]

Decent article with decent organization + disgusting quotes + plenty of sources. What more does it need? oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 16:25, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Looks like it's easily bronze to me, pushing silver. Bongolian (talk) 18:13, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
I would say an easy bronze. Christopher (talk) 18:27, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

The Daily Stormer and similar right-wing groups have been pivoting toward American Nationalism[edit]

The Daily Stormer and similar right-wing groups have been pivoting toward American Nationalism

For the past several months, The Daily Stormer has been pivoting toward American Nationalism. It called itself the #1 Republican Website. Then it was about the NRA. And so on.

If you look on Andrew's Gab account ( https://gab.ai/AndrewAnglin ) for the past several weeks, it's been nothing but Andrew promoting Eastasian girls and anime.


What it comes down to is the modern left considers The Founding Fathers of the USA to be "Nazis" and Andrew Anglin says he's a brilliant marketer so that's what he's doing.

He has a chart here from this article: “Nazi” is a Slur for “White Person”
This is his optics, associating himself with The Founding Fathers of the USA.

Anyway more examples:

For the last one, text search for: Meanwhile, I found this on the “hot terrorist girls” Instagram page
And compare to the other pics. Andrew's finally stopped that promoting Sharia stuff.

He's been doing this stuff for over a year now, the whole rebranding. --Merkel (talk) 08:43, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Bullshit. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:21, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm not saying the website believes in mere civic nationalism. He's just trying to normalize his message. I did more searching and found more articles, many going back a year where he will say he's only about civic nationalism:

Yeah it's just propaganda, but that's what he's saying:

--Merkel (talk) 05:09, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

That's bullshit. He's still a fucking Nazi. He indicates as much on Gab. Bongolian (talk) 05:31, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Dude, its april fools. Anglin posting he's now renounced racism and become a civic nationalist was posted on april fools day, same for all the above articles such as daily stormer embracing LGBT. Merkel is a troll from Rightpedia.Callimachus (talk) 05:44, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Daily Stormer changed their background banner for april fools, to promote civic nationalism as a joke. It's no longer april fools but 2 April, so the joke banner has already gone. All the above articles Merkel posted date april fools. If you look at the articles posted today (2 April) they're back to posting their Nazi-style anti-Semitism, crackpot conspiracy theories and crude racism such as calling black people "baboons".Callimachus (talk) 05:52, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Silver?[edit]

I think this is close to Silver. What do others think? Bongolian (talk) 08:39, 3 March 2020 (UTC)

@Bongolian Looking for things to upgrade, noticed you already suggested it. I approve. Cork (chat) 19:09, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
So two votes for silver and no objections over the period of one year. I guess it's silver then. Bongolian (talk) 19:41, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
Make that three. I don’t think two votes is enough, but three probably is. Give people a chance to object and if no one has someone can upgrade it tomorrow. Christopher (talk) 19:44, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Recruitment tactics are similar to cults[edit]

Then again, racist groups are cults in a way. --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 17:40, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
