I have to marvel at the pathological level of self-entitlement that ooze from this guy... to so simplistically expect that he should be perfectly "safe" to discuss this shit - and have "fun" whilst doing so. It boggles the mind.

It's true that these people have been beaten, and that is only thanks to antifa. But they have succeeded in one thing... they have made naked white supremacism a legitimate force in mainstream politics once again. The consequences of this will far outlive the alt-right.

Richard Spencer: I'm just proclaiming that power should only belong to White Christian Males and those who aren't White or Christian, deserve to die. Why is everyone so mad at me?

It is a reoccuring theme with the guys like him.

Fascist Trog calls for the death of anyone who disagrees with him, while hiding under the banner of Free Speech

Everyone Else Uses their Free Speech to tell the Trog to go to hell

Fascist Trog: B-But Free Speech!

Because "Free Speech" totally means, "I can say whatever I want without facing any consequences, even if it's just from someone saying, 'STFU!'"

Though any discussion of Richard Spencer needs to have a link to the video of him getting punched out. It never stops being satisfying to watch and really, there are reasons to share that video outside of schadenfreude. Fascist strongmen like Spencer can tolerate anything, except people taking the piss out of them, showing that underneath all that bravado and posturing, is a weak coward so much whinier than any of the SJWs they complain about.

Again, my personal fave is the one set to DMX's "X Gonna Give It To Ya" but feel free to use your own version: https://youtu.be/fErUIxAK2HA

I know what I know about fascists like RS. You can't beat them with debate, or ridicule, or "appealing to their interests" or merely "ignoring" them. You have to strip them of their pretentions to invulnerability, strength and unity, and you have to do it publicly. It's the only way. A lot of people disagree with me, but I think the alt-right in the US was beaten when that video went viral - it just took a while for the alt-right to figure that out and start cracking. That's "propaganda of the deed" done right.

Specifically names antifa as the reason he can't recruit in public, or host any more "fun & safe" events. Surprisingly no mention of getting dunked on by dems on twitter being a meaningful threat to his organizing.

I feel like their 5 minutes are up.

Their 5 minutes were up a long time ago.

Around after Charlottesville. The Boston thing they did had around, what, 20 people? And there hasn't been a big "alt-right" thing since then.

The only reason anybody thinks that the "alt-right" has done anything in the past 6 months is because the New York Times etc. have been giving them attention despite their absolute ineffectiveness.

This is an interview with a journalist who went undercover and studied the far right for years. His conclusion really stuck with me in that he agrees that these guys are bumbling idiots but ultimately it doesnt matter, they are a distraction. The structural and systematic rascism built into the core of our country is the real foe no one seems able to reckon with.
