I've been increasingly convinced debate is absolutely worthless. People's minds are changed by participating in new communities or witnessing direct action (not mutually exclusive). Debate is worthless with a fash. Flame them so marginalized people in the same spaces know you've got their back and move on.

To an extent you should speak out, it should be more or less to proclaim to marginalized people that you have their backs.

There's no point in debating someone who isn't the least bit interested in a debate. Just GTFO as soon as possible. Maybe you would be the stone that shatters their protective ignorance dome, but it is very unlikely. Focus your efforts on stopping the SOBs instead.
