Wait, the “voted against” are countries who voted against combating neo-Nazism right?

Holyshit, I hate the west so much.
Well the US will surprise literally nobody but I can’t help but laugh at Europe. The UK, the shitstain country where I live too.
Like hey our entire continent got masively fucked up by Nazi’s a few generations ago, shall we do anything to fight it? Nah. Because as always… even that most repugnant ideology, or more accurately ESPECIALLY that ideology may have fucked up things for 99% of people but it benefitted the ruling class.
Note how Germany itself “abstained” from voting on the resolution… One might have thought that they’d have learned a lesson, but no. “Never again fascism, never again war.” But no, Germany is trying to become an imperialist power on its own, they’re talking openly about “defending German interests” and “western values” (read between the lines — they mean doing imperialist intervention). Again all the baseless accusations to incite hostility against Russia. I so much hate capitalism and especially its imperialist stage…
Countries that abstain from voting against fascism are - for all intents and purposes - fascist.
It disgusts me to see my home country of Sweden abstaining from combating fascism.

india too i would say but it’s more fascism than nazism over here
No. India was a colonised nation but it was different from, for example, the colonised nations of South America in one important aspect that white europeans don’t live here in significant numbers anymore. Because of that there hasn’t been the foundation of Nazism that Europe or Brazil has.
There’s always been a pocket of Hindu nationalists though. They mostly believe that Hindu society of the past was great and was on the path to brilliance but got derailed due to stuff like the Mughal invasion of India. (Weirdly enough they don’t bear outspoken ill will towards England whose rule in India has been disastrous for Indian people by every metric.) The current ruling party is BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party, meaning Indian People’s Party). It’s an electoral front for the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, meaning National Volunteers’ Organisation). The RSS was vocal minority during the independence movement, though they did cause a huge loss of life by inciting communal violence. For some time they were banned too, but they continued to prosper underground.
The reason why they continued to thrive is very straightforward. India didn’t win her independence due to a popular revolution, but mostly because of these factors:
This meant that the power was handed from England to India and England got to choose who they gave it to. They chose the Indian National Congress because, apart from being the most popular Indian political organisation, they were filled to the brim with landowners and capitalists, most of whom were upper caste Hindus. Because of this, the communal and caste segregations within India got entrenched in the ruling system itself. The Indian state in the beginning was a liberal one with welfare policies. They didn’t take a stance against caste and communal oppression. The RSS ban was due to the acts of some problematic leaders. This, and because it garnered support from rich upper caste Hindu nationalists, is why it continued to grow underground and was never squashed. Since the independence in 1945, the liberal capitalist system has failed spectacularly while Communist movements were suppressed on top of being inept, which is why the country has turned to fascism now.
Another weird thing is that the RSS upholds the Aryan supremacy, same as the Nazis, and believe that North Indian Hindus are the supreme race. They even had some inspiration directly from the Nazis, because since India was colonised by England which was fighting a war against Germany, they came to sympathise with Germany a bit. The education system has whitewashed the catastrophic consequences of the English rule, downplayed the help received by India after independence from the USSR, and downplayed the evil that was Nazi Germany. Because of this, most Indian folk don’t see the connection between this degenerated fascism we have festering in our country today with Nazi Germany.
Sorry for the long answer. I am kinda tired so went on rambling.
