🧵1. A HELPFUL RULE OF THUMB I BORROWED FROM A FRIEND…
There are people who live in an alternate universe. Filled with alternate facts. And as much as I believe they are deluded… They are equally as convinced that in fact, I am the one who’s deluded. And you know what? …

2. Maybe I am.

4. And if they are on my side of the demonstration… I’m on the wrong side.
Look to my right. Is someone standing next to me wearing a 6MWE T-shirt?… I’m on the wrong side.

Look to my left. Is that guy wearing a Camp Auschwitz T-shirt?… I’m on the wrong side. …

5. Are the speakers being applauded for referring to things that Hitler got right?… Yep, wrong side.

Is there a booth set up where one could get a myriad of tattoos depicting swastikas, confederate flags, SS insignia, etc?… I’m on the wrong side. …

6. Some things are relative and politics can absolutely have its opposing sides and gray areas. But Evil and Good are absolutes. So, just look for the Nazis, and make your own decision.

Hope you found this helpful.
