I'm at the point now that if you support free speech for such groups as Nazi's you really don't have a leg to stand on. On the same point at least they do have a view(although nuts)the Anarchist that show up simply to cause problems with zero opinion really seem like a waist of human space. We've had our issues with Anarchist groups in Portland and I think many on the Right believe they are Democrats which I don't believe is fact.

It's unrealistic to think that the alt-right could in a million years in America remove all non-whites. It's just impossible and this is just media meltdown with bombastic hype. It for sure makes me sic how much attention they are getting.

Really can't think anyone who supports the GOP is happy with how things are shaping up. Seems maybe they are truly happy even if its just picking scabs on anyone that does not share their opinion. Hating for hates sake is not going to end well for anyone.

I agree with everything here except for the first sentence. You just can't pick & choose based on how much they revolt you. They revolt me plenty, but they have the right to spew their filth. All the dissection into yelling fire in a crowded theater or inciting violence or whatever is just mental masturbation.

I find it perversely amusing to see how much exposure these white supremacists or KKK'ers or whatever the fuck they are have received. There are what...a couple hundred thousand KKK freaks running around in their pajamas in this country? They are such a tiny sampling of the USA...a hundred or two show up to march and the whole country stands at attention for them. But the mainstream media sold a lot of commercial time for Tide, Swifter, and Fancy Feast and that's what it's all about.

its not just the main stream media. then again all media is prettyt much mainstream now. the alex jones type infotainment sites get a fuck load of traffic, which you can call mainstream now. and he sells a fuck load of male enhancement and water filters.

Well, one far-right, wing-nut down...two to go.

Miller may be the craziest one of all. It's not too difficult to imagine him donning a white hood after work.

Sure wish Brian was still here to help me understand Trumps take on rent seeking behavior.

Free speech is at it's most important for views with which you disagree.

Right now, it's apparently been decided by the mob AND the media that if they don't like what you say, they can just shout you out of town. Cities are quietly removing statues, cops are not protecting demonstrators, people are screaming demonstrations out of relevance...

Fuck all this shit. Now they're doxxing people who just happened to be at one demonstration or another, and ruining their lives, and the media is not only encouraging it, they're celebrating it!

...and people wonder why I avoid social media like the plague.

This isn't about Trump. It never has been. Perhaps there are some educated individuals around who can point out genuine flaws, but those people aren't on the table. Those are helpful people. The danger is coming from the foolish mob. This is a massive problem.

Cheers,

Kennith
