Let me say that I find many of the left leaning members on ATS to be quite reasonable.
I was shocked to hear that I wasn't on last weekend, and when I came back people were saying ATS was overrun with Nazi defenders.
I asked people to show me where but didn't really see much of it (not saying it didn't happen, but I didn't see them).
I too was called a defender or nazis, white supremacist, or white supremacists.
Didn't bother me; actually it was a relief to see that people like me saying there was violence on both sides were the "nazis" infesting ATS.
But the I started to see something disturbing; I started to see people calling for violence against all of the so called nazi defenders.
I saw members either saying or defending that all trump supporters are fascist defenders, and that they should be fought in any way possible. And
further, that if Trump supporters increased or their influence increased, then the violence needs to exist, up to the total annihilation of Trump
I have yet to see a Trump supporter call for the attacking of Obama or Hillary supporters, and if they increased that we may have to annihilate
I find it very disturbing that some members either agree with these sentiments, or make excuses for it, such as "Its just a last defense"
I am not saying it is all or even the majority of ATS members that don't like Trump that believe this, but the fact that some people that we try to
have conversations about all sorts of topics either feels this way or defends it (and I don't mean defends the right to say it, I mean claims that it
is not a vile thing to think or is excused for some reason) is shocking to me.
I will post the link to one of the threads in question here. The comments start on page 4, as it goes through calling all trump supporters fascists
supporters and makes the claim that if they grow strong enough, they must be annihilated in a civil war, even suggesting shooting people.
