You obviously are not being honest with yourself.

It is well known in political discourse that it is more acceptable to identify as a radical leftist than to do so as a neo Nazi or white supremacist. We have democratic socialists running and winning, and respected. It doesn’t have the same stigma, despite leftism writ large causing more deaths than Nazism in the 20th century.

You are dancing around every question.

There is a rise in “reported hate crimes,” not proven or convicted. Do you understand the difference? Also, it might surprise you but according to the fbi a substantial proportion of hate crimes are not perpetrated by white people.

Why are trump supporters so violent? I heard stories but I didn't think they were true. Now I know.. Trump pirates are real.

I love your avatar, I just had to comment to say that.

Per the "news" article, I'm honestly surprised more dumbass's aren't rumbling in the streets.

Hearing a case of it happening here or there doesn't really effect me. It doesn't make much difference to me if it is politically motivated, hate motivated, or just a scruff.

Cutting someone = bad... Rarely does the reason change those maths.

Literal whataboutism.

I've made my views about anyone that ascribes to a political position pretty clear over the past few years.

I know you've been in at least one of the threads where this report was posted. Scroll down to Appendix II.

Here


I'm betting you didn't do any research on any of this. You just went by what you read. I've tried to look up most of these but couldn't find anything. Perhaps a list that consists of more than "White skinhead kills man" or "white skinhead murdered homeless man" or "white skinhead murdered bisexual man"

I did find the Lockheed Martin shooting and the guy they're calling a white supremacist shot and killed both blacks and whites after he got pissed off because he was reported for making racial slurs, which others there say he didn't make. Even police investigations say it wasn't racially motivated. I guess the claims are enough for GAO to call it a far right extremist murder though.

I agree with the Sihk Temple shooting, the guy ties to white supremacy. I agree with the guy who shot up Planned Parenthood. Dylann Roof was a stupid kid who flashed the Confederate Flag after liberals demanded the flag be considered a flag of white supremacy so I don't agree that he was a far right extremist.

You need to do some research and stop buying the BS you're being sold.

Those shouldn’t be minimized; nor should they be blown out of proportion and highly politicized.

The reality is that these incidents have NOT been under covered. For several years if not a decade the narrative had been that racism, sexism, and oppression are everywhere and it’s a crisis.

The media is totally biased. New Zealand attack was horrific. Literally the week or two before just as violent attacks in Nigeria and Philippines were carried out by islamists. Those weren’t covered to the same degree.

If it’s just about ending all hate and related violence, why the difference in coverage?

That hate crimes are primarily commited by whites is a misconception driven by media bias, in the same way racism is thought, by many, to be a one way street.

Many black ppl are racist as hell against whites. Some would say they have reason to be, but I disagree, because, there again, they are painting with a broad, stereotypical brush.

Cheers mate.

Tend to agree that cutting people is bad.

But a pirate in a MAGA hat???

If that's not a walking contradiction of terms i don't know what is. LoL

Clearly this means all MAGA people are sword wielding psychos.

Gotta curtail more freedom to stop them.

Clearly.

Yes - a very good description of the thread.
You even said so yourself in the original post.

I guess I need to slow down since logic is not always obvious.

There is a rise in convicted hate crimes. There is a rise in hate groups and now that there are ways to report it there will be better figures.

So how do you know there are so few incidents where. There were not methods of reporting and classifying.

There is a huge difference between political ideology and social ideology. They collide for sure but they are not the same.

We have white nationalist run and win as well. By the way.

I completely reject the notion radical leftist are more prevelant than radicals on the right.

I think you would find plenty of people in many states that dont think socialism is ok.

The population is mostly independent and most people are not full believers.

Every stat the FBI has says hate groups, white nationalists, antifa type etc are on the rise.

So your statements are false. Not only that society doesn't exist only on campuses and cable news.

Because the Right made being opposed to gay marriage a key part of their platform for decades.

Are we just supposed to forget that whole thing now that Obama-era justices decided it was protected by the Constitution?


No they didn't. It was never an issue until the left started forcing America to accept it. If the right had any opposition to it, it was never made into a public issue.

Thanks for finding and sharing. The scissors look bent or is that just an image artifact? Seeing the blue glove there though, leads me to wonder if EMS guys may have accidentally left those scissors a possibility. If not, they definitely don't look like a sword 2 foot long.

It was literally a campaign topic both sides supported.

It's real and your assessment is absurd.

It is plainly unconstitutional to decide specific groups get government contracts. No way around that.

Right, I woke up to that reality. I’m against any oppression or bigotry.

However, with a lot of global travel and historical/social science study, I’m no longer convinced white people are inherently more racist or liable to discriminate. Ironically, this is more anti stereotyping and pro egalitarian than the view that minorities are less racist and more aware somehow.

I go with the Guns, Germs, and steel hypothesis for the variance in power.

Just like it's pretty clear when a Muslim extremist commits a terror attack. Yet the Right seems to want every single Muslim in the world to step up to a microphone and say the attacker was wrong before they'll even consider admitting that the Muslim community condemned the attacker.

So yes, you all need to step up to the mic and condemn this because we're a pattern is starting to develop.

When a Nazi killed someone in Charlottesville the Right tried to ignore it at best, while many tried to blame the victim.

When a white supremacist shot up a black church the Right tried to pretend it didn't actually happen.

Just look at the recent reactions to the NZ shooting.

Every single time the Right does everything they can to deflect from the attack without ever really condemning the attacker. So that either means they don't want to admit their side is less than perfect or, even more frightening, they actually support these maniacs.

So yeah, from now on I'm going to call out the Right on this site when they don't explicitly condemn one of their own crazy people.


After getting on with this high and mighty post, please explain Jussie Smollet again?
