If they aren't numerious… then why were there so many in Charlottesville? Why are there so many Nazi salutes at Nationalist marches in the UK? Even ONE Neo-Nazi is a huge threat.

You have your head in the sand in this.

edit:
If you want to express yourself artistically through normalizing nazi imagery, then you're probably a shitty person. Just my opinion. Like, I understand the "slippery slope", but in what context would you ever NEED to draw something nazi related [in the context of mlp]?

then why were there so many in Charlottesville?

According to the ADL, 600 out of which 330 were identified. The population of Charlottesville alone is 49,449 at the time of writing. Add to that the fact that these extremists came from 39 different states. So yeah, not numerous enough to be relevant ESPECIALLY considering the confederate statue was torn regardless.

Why are there so many Nazi salutes at Nationalist marches in the UK?

I assume you mean the one from June 13? Apparently a large portion of the crowd was made up of soccer enthusiats who attended for… some reason. In soccer it's not an uncommon gesture to punch the air and point up. Why these soccer enthusiasts did it? Beats me, but it seems the far right morons joined in and good luck figuring out who's saluting and who's doing the football gesture. Can't get a fix on the numbers though.

How do you draw Twilight Sparkle throwing a nazi flag into a pit of lava without the nazi flag?

Why draw a Nazi Pony because surreal comedy, laughing the preposterous nature of it, it ridicules the Nazis and degrades them to a joke, however treating them seriously gives them validity, and therefore if anybody thinks they are a serious threat giving them that power is a shitty person.

All this spare time during 'rona yet no one is self-reflecting or improving. Drama gets so much done for people with genuinly altruistic views and motivations, now doesn't it?

They weren't, but since he knows he can't counter my claims he'd rather post some childish stuff as bait while also trying to come out of the conversation as the one who was right.

Almost as if he's not arguing on our level…

HHHHMMMMM…….

If you think that's all it's about you are sorely mistaken, it's about artistic expression, the only people that are going "whaaahhh" and stomping their feet are the ones that going around demanding the witchhunt, and all this witchhunt has done is bring hate and prejudice, but I guess haters gonna hate.

Anybody else remember when this whole fandom was about love and tolerance and used to be special in that regard?

@Inucroft
Ah, yes, because the people that don't want to be told what ponies they can and can't draw, and who don't want to be witch-hunted by the likes of you for having drawn a forbidden horse, can only be full of hatred to the very last.
Indeed.

Just gonna say this y'all. If any of ya want to draw a literal nazi pony, you can go right ahead, but no-one's required to give you a platform to share it.

Just gonna say this y'all. If any of ya want to behave like literal Nazi's by trying to control other people, you can go right ahead, but no one is required to give you a platform to try.

Oh no, how dare I hate an ideology that advocates the literial murder of millions and has already murdered millions!

Fucking free speech abstentionists are utterly stupid

@Inucroft
Opposing hatred while promoting hatred is hypocrisy regardless of who it is you purport to hate. It's in the exact same vein as a mother taking a drag from her cigarette while telling her kids how terrible they are; hypocritical regardless of possible moral justification, and fair to point out especially if one's goal is, consciously or otherwise, to pressure others into being more veracious with themselves and the rest of the world.

Also comic is your apparent position that one group ought not be permitted to host their artwork on a particular site and simultaneous seeming loathing for the concept of free speech, even despite their congruity.

@Inucroft
Actually it says "Hater of Nazi edgelords" not Nazis, Nazi edgelords can mean two things.
I'm no fan of socialism myself either, but I refuse to stoop to their level.
And I believe everything you said so far has been emotional and baseless, but I would never prevent you from saying it, nor encourage you to not to do so, what I do encourage is to provide reasoning behind what you say and believe, so at the very least people can understand where you are coming from, just because we can't agree doesn't mean we can't understand each other.

Oh please. You don't apply this same standard to say, ISIS or pedophiles lol.

Hating bad people is perfectly okay and normal. Duh.

Holy shit "Love & Tolerance" was a joke shitpost and people are still taking seriously as some motto of the fandom and using it to excuse shitty behavior lmao. Its astoundingly cringe that people are still spouting it unironically. Get fucking real.

The only people still whining about this are the Pro-Nazi /mlpol/ dudes on this meta board, because they realized that the "Derpi is dead!!!!" thing didn't pan out and only like 20 people give a fuck about their new edgy lolicon boorus.

We're not talking about ISIS or pedophiles, though, we're talking about "Nazis" and "Nazi edgelords", both labels thrown around with such bald flippancy as to have no real qualifying factor at all, and I think even less than none as it's apparently here being used to refer to people who dare to draw a particular horse. Unless of course you mean to equate said artists to ISIS and pedophiles, a statement so ludicrous as to brook no response but laughter so far as I'm concerned.
