Thanks for all the teaching opportunities as my kid and I scraped all your stickers off the bridge, campground, and yellow trail. We talked about everything from why it's ok to call certain things dumb, to why people feel like they need to spread hatred, to why some people are so afraid of doctors and academia they would rather kids get polio than vaccinated. We removed probably 10 stickers, and even had a conversation about why hating you isn't ok, but we still need to resist people who think that others who are different shouldn't exist.

Oddly enough, we didn't see any stickers past the 1.5 mile point. Couldn't make it the whole way?

Keep wasting your fascist money, we'll be back to scrape the red trail another day.

P.S. "Not stolen, Conquered" is about the stupidest fucking thing I've ever read.

Sorry. I just know comments like that really upset people like that.

The hardest part were the two water crossings I didn't know about until we were halfway around the trail (we'd never done the yellow trail) but a couple soaked shoes and a lost sock later, we made it.

The stickers were a pleasure to remove.

Part of people staying members of PF is that they have to do something that shows they're advancing the movement. The most common way is stickers or their spray paint tagging. So they will hike in a little bit, plaster their shit, take a photo for their discord or group chat to prove their shit and leave.

Don't ever expect to see it miles into a trail. That's not the point. This is why, it's a known tactic of the group. Since they're so online based, it's not hard to find out their tactics and membership and all of that.

I will bet money the PF members doing this shit are young college aged men with some fucked up views of the world.


armenia4ever t1_j11yglb wrote

Anyone ever bother to try to catch them and actually talk with them and see why they have all sorts of fucked up views? There's got to be some Darryl Davis types in Springfield.


Saltpork545 t1_j121ljb wrote

Not that I've seen but you're probably right. PF specifically markets to young men aged 18-25. I'm sure there's someone who helps them come back out of said rabbit hole, but I don't know if there is one in Springfield.

Thank you for doing this and making it a teaching moment for your kiddo. Glad there are still good people in this area like yourself.


Television_Wise t1_j11y1pv wrote

Gotta love the bodyshaming from idiots here. You know you're not going to hurt any PF people with that right? Instead you're letting perfectly nice, innocent people know you think they're disgusting and mockworthy for a harmless physical trait they were born with.

There's nothing wrong with having a small penis, being old, or having a disability, or any of the other physical traits that got trotted out to insult people.

The irony of acting like people are lesser based on physical traits...while purporting to be against fascism...absolute clown behavior.

Ya you got me. It was funny how my comment got flagged for not being about Springfield. But almost all other comments were not about Springfield. Somebody got their feelings hurt because I said it was not correct to say the polio vax is the same as mrna vax. One helped humanity and one is killing people.

It's not and I'm Armenian.

I can go all day about stolen/conquered land - which is actually happening still right now having lost a war to Azerbaijan over territory that Armenian families' have built on and in for hundreds of years.


the_honeyman OP t1_j110m39 wrote

Seems like your land is being stolen, but whatever.


armenia4ever t1_j110v59 wrote

We at some point conquered that land. In turn we were conquered, displaced, subjugate, enslaved, etc by various empires and peoples. History is cyclical. Never have guilt or shame about the land you live on or who you ancestors were. Don't apologize. Ever.

I 've got 3 kids and this is a moral value I plan to install as much as possible.

Down vote all you want as I don't l expect any real counter points.


the_honeyman OP t1_j1117jd wrote

And now we're right back to Patriot Front talking points.

the_honeyman OP t1_j111v0i wrote

Surely the most extreme option is the best, and there are absolutely zero ways of making things right short of everybody giving up their houses and being homeless.

Nobody except you said anything about feeling shame.

Edit: dude is a walking, talking, Patriot Front propaganda-spouting fountain.


armenia4ever t1_j11y8pk wrote

Or you could present counter points instead of accusing me - a POC - of being walking talking propaganda for Patriot Front. ( I also have tons of privilege cards I can play, so check yours before you launch accusations. )


the_honeyman OP t1_j11yx2q wrote

When you're spouting the same lines as they do, e.g. "Never apologize" and "DoN't GuiLT tRiP mY KiDs," you might as well be.

I do recognize my privilege, which is why I realize how important teaching children about privilege is. Pretty rich of you to tell me to check my privilege mere messages after "don't ever feel shame about your ancestors."


armenia4ever t1_j11zys4 wrote

I've got 2000+ years of my ancestors being subjugated, enslaved, conquered, multiple genocides, hundreds of years of wealth and land passed down generation to generation gone in a matter of weeks (real structural systematic impact) ... and I still maintain that no one should feel shame about their ancestors - to Turks, Azeris, and even the Mongols.

Take the good with the bad and keep going.

You can always keep digging and find that the victims were victimizers themselves. It's an endless waltz. (I also might be biased on that because of how much EU4 I've played.)


the_honeyman OP t1_j120ad0 wrote

You're basing your knowledge of world history from a fucking video game? We're officially done here.


armenia4ever t1_j122v7l wrote

Knowledge comes from many places. You'd be a fool to not utilize and learn from any sources, materials, and yes games that you can.

I'm also basing it on having read and studied voraciously about peoples and their history since I was quite young. I judge people for their actions now instead of their ancestors in the past where the morals of that time instead of ours. It's really as simple as that.

Who are we to judge Shaka, Batu Khan, Cuauhtemoc, etc?

No such thing as a good deed unless you post about it on the internet.


the_honeyman OP t1_j11td6f wrote

Normally, I'd agree with you 100%. This post is different, though. This is letting fasicts know their shit won't be tolerated here.

Definitely wouldn't post talking shit on things people like for no other reason than being an overgrown manchild who thinks the Patriot Front is cool.

I don't think they care. That's kind of their thing. Them knowing you spent your time scraping all that would probably make them laugh.

Look, I'm doing something. I scraped off a bunch of losers' stickers then went straight to reddit to advertise for them.

The irony of you posting this is hilariously sad. Way to go Streisand!


the_honeyman OP t1_j1204j6 wrote

I was wondering when you'd poke your miserable nose in here to take shots at me. You seem to have a weird obsession with me.

Removing fascist propaganda and vandalism from a public space is nothing short of a civic duty for anybody who actually believes in a just, democratic society. Posting here shows them there are at least 140 people (at the moment) who don't want them here.

Not to mention I just plain don't care what your opinion of me is.

the_honeyman OP t1_j12334k wrote

Lmao I don't even know who you are. Who the fuck is "we?"

You know nothing of my life, but you are projecting awfully hard.

Edit: went through your post history trying to figure out who you are, all I can see is calling people who talk about privelege and systemic injustice "race-baiters," an inordinate amount of posts defending the use of Swastikas, being shitty towards those advocating for student loan forgiveness, and pretending the left went extreme.

Yea, I'm far better off without you and whoever that "we" is in my life.
