    fun fact: in germany if you’re a neo nazi or own nazi regalia they arrest the absolute fuck out of you

    fun fact: guess what we should do in america

    Guess what they should do in every other country on earth

    extend that to kkk members too 

    Throw in every single hate group

    Arresting people for their beliefs, that’s good.

    You know who else did that?

    THE NAZIS

    WAKE UP
