Hey, check it out, the guy who constantly rants about people holding 'leftist' views believes it's perfectly acceptable to hold white supremacist views.

And for the record, I don't care what views anyone holds, they (and you) are free to believe whatever you want. But that doesn't mean that I won't have my own opinion of those views, or will hesitate to express that opinion.

I find it perfectly acceptable for people to have far left or far right views, though I'm glad most find themselves somewhere more in the middle (unlike this far left forum). I disagree with both of them however, both the far left and far right. By dank69's logic, because I find both "acceptable" in that I feel freedom of thought is better than control and thought crimes, I guess I'm a free market KKK militan vegan antifa communist. People are free to be ignorant, ultimately truth wins more often than not, while you guys may be for controlling people I am for letting rational thought decide.

Actual white supremacists are a fringe group. You are painting with FAR too broad of a brush with what you are saying based on that question.
Of course you are aware that the number of white supremacist groups has increased something like 50% over the past few years, right? And distribution of their propaganda has increased similarly.

The more years we go without abolishing trickle down, the more damage to our working class, the more appealing it'll be for them to blame someone else for their problems. Trump's populism was full of scapegoats in 2016, and those feelings will only continue to metastasize over time. America's economic woes are slowly sickening us like a cancer. Our thoughts turn against one another rather than focusing on policy that'd actually solve our underlying issues.

Can I have 15 seconds of your time?

I don't believe white nationalist groups are a significant threat in any real way. Sure, there is some level of damage, but statistically we're talking about a drop in the bucket and a movement that really is fading out.

You are of course completely wrong. statistically white supremicist is the largest terrorist threat we face.

yup, we realize that, and luckily, nobody gives a shit what you believe or don't believe. And fuck you for your "some level of damage"

The way you describe it, it doesn't sound like they were "well regulated" at all. You're not going to tell me the OP was posting ignorantly again?!?
"Well regulated" isn't a legal term, and I wasn't commenting on the OP at all but the article and event he posted about.

FBI arrests member of rightwing militia accused of detaining migrants

Fucking lol, this thread aged well.

The Daily Beast reported that Hopkins has a history of pushing far-right conspiracies and has a conviction for impersonating an officer and felony firearm possession. He could not be reached on Saturday and it was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
No wonder RetardSpyder likes these guys.

Apparently they're q-anon truthers as well. This is actually hilarious.

I finally read up about the group earlier today... no wonder Slow loves them, they'll happily violate the law and their country's values in the name of their anti-migrant fetish. Every single one of them should be locked up for what they've done.

Well it's not like we have a federally constituted border patrol service and existing laws to address the situation at the southern border, so we need these vigilante groups, Nat'l Guard and US Army to get the job done. /s

Its like these idiots saw Turmp trying to declare a state of emergency and saw it as their marching orders. "Oh, we're suppose to make the emergency so law enforcement and the military have to do something then!"

Wasn't there another user on here that was super enraged about the border? Taj something?
A lot of right wingers have tapped out here as Trumpism kept getting trumpier and trumpier. Personally I would rather they stick around rather than ah heck off(what? I cant type "b u g g e r - o f f" ?), I would have no problem sharing a beer and looking forward instead of whatever-past bickering there may be.

- Now we just have the russobots. :(
