Some people aren't worth talking to and even then that's assuming that they're willing to talk. We're talking about people that want the mass elimination of people they deem racially inferior, if someone is gone far enough into irrationality to think that's a good idea they're immune to rational discource. 

Everyone is worth talking to but the format is important.

bad formats for a talk with Neo-nazis/ alt-right activist:
- TV debates
- TV interviews
- etc.

good formats for a talk with Neo-nazis/ alt-right activist:
- together with former Neo-nazis
- together with a deradicalisation expert
- in extreme cases a psychiatrist

If you have to call a psychiatrist or a deradicalisation expert that just show how far gone they are. I'm not qualified to deal with that level of crazy. People that disagree with me are 1 thing but people that actively rally for my death or enslavement is a totally different conversation

I have lived in Tennessee (24 years), Texas (1 year) and Mississippi (10 years). Generally most citizens of all races view the Confederate flag as a piece of cloth not worth acknowledging unless asked. For example, I drove across north MS twice a day for 1 year and I saw 4 Confederate flags. As a reference point I saw more Coexist bumper stickers.

Nobody here is going to believe that lie.

Haha. It isn't a lie. The Confederate flag is rare in North MS, Dallas, and Central and West TN.  I invite you to visit us. I could drive you down Highway 72 everyday for a year and you will see 1 Confederate flag at someone's house, but thats about it. I could drive you down Highway 55 for a year and you might see 4 flags. I know this from personal experience, sorry that I didn't video tape my every move so that I could calm the unprecedented paranoia around white supremacists. They are a marginalized group, even in the deep south.

The numbers on white supremacists are estimates based on their Unite the Right Rally because they pumped a huge amount of income, time, social media, etc into it and only an estimated 500 showed up.

As for Antifa, thats based on countless news reports and numbers consistent with both sides of the aisle.



I liked his State of the Union speech.

It was nice, a really fluffy, feel good, non controversial speech. But fluffy and feel good doesn't erase my actual issues with the way he handles his job. Yeah unity and WWII vets are nice but he still sold weapons to Saudi Arabia, denies climate change and the government is probably going to shut down again in 2 weeks

Therefore, this large and dangerous white supremacist movement is largely a myth. Across the south they might number a thousand or two because even with an extremely aggressive online push for the Unite the Right rally they only managed to bring in 500. Unite the Right Rally is by far their most "successful" event in the last 20 years.

Antifa numbers around 20,000 and their most successful event is effectively shutting down Portland, Oregon.

I will let you decide who is today's greater threat between the two factions.

You're basically saying:

I dont see many Confederate flag, therefore there aren't many white supremacists.  That doesn't hold up.  

I could say by the same logic I've never seen a communist flag on the road, therefore there aren't any communists in the US.  Somehow I doubt that holds up.  One doesn't need to sport a flag to support something, especially when it comes to controversial things.

I too have lived in Dallas and Nashville.  As well as other parts of Texas and Florida.  It's not possible to have only seen 1 flag (yard, house, vehicle, etc...) on route 72. That's the heart of Dixieland.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Did you guys see Pence last night at the state of the union? Looked like he was jacking off to his fearless leader in the background. Must have blown his mind. No!!! Can't go against my christian morals but I must jack off now.

Nice map of a bunch of shit states.  Seriously every single state I see on there is shit especially state I currently reside in Texas.  Other states I see on there just as bad or worse.

Lived in the south all of my life. Racism exists, but is pushed out of everyday life. Black, hispanic and white people break bread together frequently. Interracial couples are common and interracial churches are increasing. Seeing people of different races working, fishing, dating, etc each other is so common place that it is difficult to go shopping or out to eat without seeing races interacting in a positive manner. The racists are relegated to their closets.

However, nice job ignoring a real life example and hard numbers in favor of what feels right.  Also should note I never said there weren't any white supremacists only that they represent less than a percent of the population.

Would you like me to video tape the little over 1.5 hr drive from Corinth MS to Memphis TN? I mean there really isn't any other way. Sorry that my story goes against your preconceived bias.
