(en) [Spain] Stop Fascism ... by voting? - Acrato saurio rex By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 5 Jan 2019 08:14:12 +0200

The 42% of abstentions in Andalusia, bewildered the left, who does not understand how many people stopped playing their ballots at the polls. They can not explain, even though they are so smart and have graduated graduates, because so many voters believe that their vote is a worthless shit, preferring to dedicate this sacred and participatory day to other things. And so, if someone tells the leftist candidate that he did not vote for him, they reproach political immaturity, and they say that the entry of this mob into Parliament is due to my dogmatic abstention and, in general, to abstain. And it goes without saying much, that fascism must be stopped by voting. And he throws the challenge: if Hitler came to power, would you abstain too?
It does not matter that Hitler is dead and his ashes scattered. Let's assess how many people would have to vote to stop Hitler's feet, thanks to this wisdom compendium that is Wikipedia, which concentrates all the election results of the Weimar Republic.

In the September 1930 elections, they voted 81.95% of the census. Hitler obtained 18.25% of the votes, (eliminating abstention). On this occasion, the Social Democrats won.

In July 1932, 84.10% of people voted, and Hitler took 37.27%. He won, but not enough to rule alone.

In November 1932, the share fell to 80.58%. Hitler lost voters by 33.09%. The more abstention, the less Nazism, therefore.

On the other hand, in the March 1933 elections, 88.74% of the Huns went to vote, and Hitler got 43.91% of the votes. No. You did not get the absolute majority. He did not have 36 seats ... and he still implanted the dictatorship. In the elections that followed, only He appeared.

What lessons can we draw from these mathematical operations? Well, contrary to popular belief, Hitler never won an absolute democratic election. And abstention was not what brought Hitler to power. In Bochelandia many people voted, more than 80%, and yet Hitler gained more and more votes, except when there was more abstention in November 1932, when the Nazis lost many voters. From which one can deduce that the more people vote, the more Nazis appear.

Finally, for me, what led Hitler to power was, on the one hand, fortune and chance, on the other hand, his murderous militias, together with the support of the bourgeois parties, not to mention the stupidity of the Social-Democrats and Communists, who devoted themselves to making him war instead of seeking covenants to govern and break the nationalist paranoia in which the great Teutonic nation had sunk. And, of course, the guilt of the voters who believed in the scheißedeutschland and thought that voting for the Nazis was the solution.

And this tells them only to know, when they invite you to vote to stop the rise of fascism, which have nothing to do with elections and abstention, with electoral growth of the far right. Fascists grow or decline because conscientious voters vote them more or less. They do not grow because recalcitrant abstentionists approve elections. Parliament is an effect. Not the cause.

So if they ask you to vote to stop fascism ... in fact they want you to vote for them . And as they do not know how to bend their morals, they turn to Hitler, who is the wild card. Despite today, it is impossible for him to come to power, even gathering his ashes ... The militants know it! Hitler did not reach the position of Chancellor thanks to the abstention, if not precisely because of her absence.

So I always abstain? Well, I do not rule out voting if there was something too big at stake, like lowering a cat from a tree. I go, I vote, and a politician goes up to the millenary tree, and to take the cat, who scratches him mercilessly as he descends with the animal clinging to his scalp, mewing like a madman between cries of unspeakable suffering and disfigured face. Fuck you. Who would not vote, just to see a politician doing something useful?
