I hate how some people think acknowledging this means you're defending these groups, or that you're secretly one of them.

Leftists and anarchists are understandably annoyed and disillusioned by liberalism where "compromise" is the name of the game with racists, fascists, and oppressors alike. Often liberals come to us in the form of concern trolls, so it's understandable why someone might react that way.

However, yes we can be uncompromising while also understanding why these people have become the way they are; especially if you believe humans are fundamentally good, as I do.
