    If you're talking about me... don't get the wrong idea, I still think Trump will make a terrible president for America, but I do happen to agree with you on this one issue.

    And no, that's not just me being the intellectual equivalent of a tsundere (it's not like I agree with you or anything, baka!), though I still do like you as a person.

    Someone asked why Republicans always seem to feel afraid.
    Imagine what you're experiencing right now but for the last 20 years or so.
    And then have those feelings demonized when they're brought into the light because your ancestors supposedly did a bad thing.
    All I'm saying is I don't remember any violent riots over Obama being elected.

    No, headlines like "look at the dapper face of white nationalism" raise his profile, getting socked while bragging about his frog pin just make him look pathetic.

    Doesn't do anything about Bannon doing not at all hmmm inducing things like omitting Jews from Holocaust memorial speeches but you've got to deal with the footsoldiers.

    For one thing, it's an exaggeration to say that fascists literally control the government. Does Trump's administration exhibit some disturbing similarities with fascism on the surface level? Unfortunately yes. But no political theorist worth their salt thinks that Trump or his ilk are literal garden-variety fascists straight out of Nazi Germany.

    Doesn't stop him from being extremely dangerous to America of course, but it helps to use language precisely. Throwing around terms like fascist and white supremacist so freely is quite possibly part of the reason Trump got elected in the first place, after all.

    No, I get that. The problem with engaging with those people (I'm referring specifically to alt-right/neo-nazis) in any way ends badly.

    Both those things are stupid IMO. People like Spencer shouldn't be getting any more attention then your local crazy homeless guy down the street.

    Such things only grant them undeserved legitimacy in the public eye.

    And it's easy not to but this fetish for street protest in some parts of the left base is going to backfire immensely. For example, the Berkeley business.

    And you don't think that might have something to do with what trump is doing/trying to do?

    remember he's supposed to lead the WHOLE country, not just the people who voted for him.

    at least Obama fucking tried. Too bad he was black and the GOP was too busy clutching its collective purse

    I think part of the problem is too much emphasis on protesting for its own sake and less on what these ever-so-noble protests are going to actually accomplish.

    I think it's people too used to being the majority flounder that they don't have their crooked snake bitch in the White House, clearly.

    You're right he doesn't really mean a "ban" on Muslims, there won't literally be a wall.

    Pay attention to this, Ail Don. It's not about shutting down dialogue, but being civil anf productive about it so everyone can express themselves. Otherwise you might as well just suspend the rules and have a free for all.

    Which is the same thing wrong with punching Nazis.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    What if, and stop me if this sounds crazy, Nazis don't DESERVE to express themselves?

    No, they do. They just don't deserve to force their beliefs on others and invite violence.

    Perhaps, in fact, a society where Nazis hide and are afraid to spread their views is a BETTER society!

    Which are literally core parts of being a Nazi

    Okay, now you're clearly wording things to be as inflammatory as possible. Please cut it out. Invective like that ("Crooked snake bitch") does absolutely nothing to foster any kind of reasonable debate.

    There's also a difference between civility and a culture of suppression that immediately attacks any differing ideas no matter how sugar-coated or blunt they're put based simply on the fact someone doesn't want to face those particular "facts" but I think that's enough for me in this thread today anyway.
    Have a good day, lads.
