So I'm all over the Forums, peeking here and there: the usual.
When I see a thread about Richard Spencer getting punched in the face. I commented saying the punch didn't offend me because Spencer is apart of alt-right (a movement which I disagree with wholeheartedly) and that he wants to get rid of blacks. Someone commented saying "Prove that he said that". And while Spencer has never outright said, "We should get rid of blacks", he has said he wants to perform "Peaceful Ethnic Cleansing" and believes his race is "superior" to all others, and also that Blacks and Latinos are "predisposed" genetically to committing crimes. That he is tired of the mixing, and wants to get out of it.
This DA user (who I won't name, because I don't like flaming) no matter how many times I told them that my opinion is my own, kept telling me, "Prove it", and "back up your crap". I told them I didn't need to provide proof for something that doesn't need defending: it's all over the internet. When I wouldn't provide them with a link, they replied to 3 different comments of mine, and then proceeded to block me, so I couldn't respond further. The same person who previously said it was cowardly for the "thug" to punch Spencer in the face and then run off. Hypocrisy.
First of all: How do you know this man who punched Spencer is a "thug"? Is it because of the way he's dressed? He could be a professional in an important field who was out there solely to protest, not flash his wealth in an expensive suit and tie. Is it because he was black? Is that why you used the word thug? And he's a coward why? Because he ran off afterwards?
I stated that maybe the man ran off afterwards because he didn't want to be arrested by any undercover white supremacist cops, and be put in prison for an unfair amount of years just for knocking a white man and maybe giving him a little lump on his jaw. Someone then responded with, "Undercover white supremacist cops? Please tell me more about your fantasy world."
To suggest a cop would be racist is a fantasy?? Then someone else had the nerve to say, "Only like, 16 people would claim to be white supremacists." Are you fucking kidding me? There are still members of the KKK alive, and you can say that with confidence??
Richard Spencer may not be a Nazi, because he's not saying we should be out there killing anyone. But he's FOR segregation, he's FOR "peaceful ethnic cleansing", he's FOR building a wall. There are PLENTY of reasons why I feel him being punched in the face is totally justified. It frustrates me more, no that some people chose to sit by and say nothing, but that some individuals can STAND and DEFEND someone who views the world the way Spencer does. The same individuals, who if the races were switched, would have said Spencer was justified in punching the "thug" in the face.
I'm glad my first time getting blocked on DA was for defending something I believe in.
