Even when it comes to Neo-Nazi's using cars to murder an innocent and injure nineteen more?

Scant difference between FDR & Hitler?
The only difference between the two is FDR didn't have gas chambers.
Q: Do you yourself think it's acceptable or unacceptable to hold neo-Nazi or white supremacist views? Do you feel that way strongly, or somewhat?
To some extent, the violence instigated by the Antifa organizations around the nation are a direct reaction to the racism promoted by the organizations discussed above. By co-opting the term “alt-right” and working diligently to associate their racist agenda with that of both Steve Bannon (former Brietbart) and President Donald Trump, they have created an environment where the left has been provided with a platform to oppose the nationalist policies of the current administration. Regardless of how many times President Trump condemns NPI, Identity Evropa and Vanguard America, these organizations continue to promote the lie that they and their “alt-right” movement are a principle reason he was elected. The Antifa has been able to grow exponentially over the past year supported by the rise of the “White Nationalists” and recruiting campaigns like #ProjectSiege sponsored by Identity Evropa.
The “Antifa” we face at the rallies and marches across America have no lineage or true association to the German Anti-Fascist Action group whose name they have adopted. They are agitators sponsored by colleges, universities and other leftist organizations that are both disappointed by the outcome of the recent election and alarmed at the rise of fascists like Nathan Damigo and “White Nationalists” like Richard Spence

And whose to say they're actual Nazi's? I'm regularly told that waving Nazi flags, saying "the Jews will not replace us," and giving the Nazi salute does not make one a Nazi but instead is indicative of me being brainwashed to see anyone/everyone I don't agree with as a Nazi
So let's have some logical consistency here
The language of the question is a bit ambiguous but this recent survey of 1,000+ adult Americans found that 9% found neo-Nazi and white supremacist views acceptable.
I’m not one for polling nor do I know much about that junk science—and I’m bad at math—but reading the question and numbers you linked to shows that it is 3 who strongly agree and 5 who somewhat agree that it is acceptable to hold white supremacist views. Why is that the only question where the Net result is not the sum of the other two numbers? Sincere question.
This is the same type of media that claims to have given Tump billions of dollars in free advertising, thus helping his campaign. I wonder how many billions of dollars of free advertising they have been given to the alt-right and neo-nazis. I wonder how much this free advertising, most of it negative, has given justification to illiberal activists and fascists alike.
Imagine if the media reported on this statement of Trump’s which he made in the exact same speech where he said “many sides”, which you surely know about by now given its incessant repeat.
“Above all else, we must remember this truth, no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country. We love our God. We love our flag. We're proud of our country. We're proud of who we are.”

What exactly is achieved by counter-protesting?
It's just a giant form of virtue signaling, a way of shouting, "See how not like those people I am! Look how mighty and virtuous I am!"
