116. You are opposed to stopping bigots
that is terrible and potentially leads to the worst of consequences, and yet you seem happy with such a prospect.

A Stalin pin is not the product or symbol or item of a contemporary movement for the purging of the state. That is a fact. Furthermore, what would a Stalin pin represent as "mass murder"? The idea that most Communists should be killed after a revolution? The idea that troops should be shot for retreating? You have yet to specify any intolerant idea which could possibly be represented by this symbol.

Moreover, as I've said countless times before, historical items are not a problem. If a symbol is not used to propagate intolerant ideas, it would not fall under any such category.

Please, show me how a Stalin pin is intrinsically intolerant of a certain group. Go ahead, you have refused to give me any tangible support, and so your so-called argument is without support.

You are for the allowance of bigoted and intolerant ideas to spread, I am against that. Period. Oh, and no amount of delusional straw-men will change the fact that your argument is clearly shown to be fallacious.
