your chances are only likely if you present them with an idea that is very similar and only slightly different than their own.

I guess this is what I was thinking, the fascist mentioned in the OP made some complaint about the "corporate media" - which had an element of truth to it in that the media is run by large corporations - but they seem to think it's all "leftists" and that they have an "agenda of diversity". This seems to be quite common among the far right on the internet actually. I wondered if it would be possible to use that idea to steer them in the right direction.

I guess the problem is, you simply can't tell if they actually believe in what they're saying about the corporate media, or if it's nothing but an attempt to appeal to a certain type of person to drag them in.
