if you consider facism, "not that much of a problem", consider that it is because of your social status.
And if you then also consider acting against facism is actually facism you lost your mind to the far right, as those 2 thoughts are exclusionary to each other by logic. If you can't grasp it, read:

- antifacism is facism and by that a problem
now repeat those sentenses after each other in any order you want.

We know that because twitter doesn't have #UploadFilters *yet*. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to share it now, or even have a discussion about it.
Surprising how quickly many journalists aligned with US DOJ narrative on #Assange.
As someone who couldn't care less about nations & borders, I see no difference between people who promote either Russia's or USA's interests and their tendency to prosecute whistleblowers.
