The Making of an American Nazi 14:40 - Nov 16 with 1457 viewsSteve_M

This is both excellent and deeply disturbing:

It also manages to encompass nearly every TWTD trope, just missing flying cars, cheese and parking at Gatwick.

I'm sure there is, I'm just telling you the problems with it. And why it's prefixed with 'so-called', in the video you posted. Try not to take it all so personally, sweetheart.


Not really, you're telling me your problems with it despite it being widely accepted.

It must be tough being the most clever guy on the internet.

Cheers for the 'sweetheart' - your insecurity is showing.

I'm telling you what's wrong with it, and specifically why. You've not been able to reply to those reasons. You *say* you are capable of rational argument, so are you able to reply to them?

There's literally nothing wrong with it, your point is incomprehensible.

It's called 'alt-right' or 'far-right', but it's not only consigned to the right-wing, particularly anti-semitism. So it makes no sense. These labels are applied to people who violently want to kill or threaten to kill other people, usually in different ethnic groups. Then there is a discussion about a problem with people in these groups. There is no political analysis in the application of these labels, even though the name suggests one. This is a problem.

That's a completely different issue and point, but cool.

You're right up there with either one of the biggest trolls in this community or most stupid posters.

Either way, you keep doing you mate. I've just no interest

I would say 'far right' suffers from the same problem I stated as with 'alt right'. As soon as you go beyond 'violence towards people you disagree with', you have problems. This is based on psychotic violent intolerance, and not politics.


I'd say his alignment with people and groups who identify themselves as right wing, the worship of Hitler, the tattooing of nazi-related iconography on to his skin, etc., is a clue that his current activities can safely be pigeonholed as right wing.

And he's obviously a highly impressionable, deeply disturbed individual.

It probably doesn't matter in this case anyway. There's enough there I'm sure to provide an understanding of how he came to be where he is. He's certainly had an eventful life so far!

No, it's the same point, if you read it. But I know you're not interested, and it's very clear why -- it's a big problem for anyone trying to build an argument based on meaningless labels.

I've read it.

You haven't understood it. You only understand general consensus and have to go with the popular vote. The problem won't go away for you if you ignore it, so I'll keep it safe for you.
