Is that a lot of new sign ups i see? What's up?

Uh, not a fan of the Spanish colonization jokes fellas.

Show thread

@Gargron Do not take them serious, dude... They're just jokes. No harm.

@Bala_Perdida There are Native Americans on and this is as alienating as it can get

@Gargron @Bala_Perdida
Really? Spain never made genocide, acts man. Read the truth, please.


@celtmanager @Gargron @Bala_Perdida the spanish were thieving murderous bastards on the American continent.

@jasper @celtmanager @Gargron Please, can we stop this discussion here? We're never gonna agree and it makes some of us uncomfortable. Thanks for your understanding.

@celtmanager @Bala_Perdida @Gargron other people have felt more uncomfortable in murderous history than simple disagreement.

Don't be such a delicate snowflake. You're not even responsible for what ancestors did. You are responsible for the your influence on the future and not helping a culture that permits hiding of crimes.

@jasper @celtmanager @Bala_Perdida @Gargron
The Colonisers are NOT even ancestors of current Spaniards as they left the country never to return. The descendants of those colonisers actually live in those countries that were colonies then.

@jgm irrelevant in multiple ways.

1) even if none came back, it is a split off from culture there. Both ends of the split keep a lot of their culture.

2) Spain had piles of gold because of this thievery back then, obviously people went back to live in Spain again too.

3) it is just you having long toes and taking everything personally. It is actually important that the propensities and the consequences are still here. And that we're responsible for our influence on the world.

@Gargron @jasper @celtmanager I think Spanish users of Mastodon might find this offensive, Eugene.

@sapoconchus @celtmanager @Gargron @Bala_Perdida the Netherlands. Is the point going to be that my country were infact also frequently murderous and repressive bastards?

Do you see me making jokes about it? You know some garbage people still talk about "VOC mentality" in the Netherlands too?

Tbh i think the 21st century will be worse than the 20th..

@jasper @celtmanager @Gargron @Bala_Perdida have you read any "joke", mate? Or are you just replying about what ypu've heard that has been going on?

That is my fracking point.

@jasper @celtmanager @Gargron @Bala_Perdida As spaniard I agree 100%
Spanish fascists have their own history and they don't give a fuck about truth. We love to call them "fachas".

@Toasted not caring about the truth is pretty much a property of facism in general.

I also call them emo bois sometimes.. the way they whine seems to frequently fit.
