They're not wrong in that he's a c*nt with a demonstrably punchable face, but I think they are wrong in that he has carries any weight outside his own blancosphere.  He's a neo-nazi white supremacist that everyone knows is a neo-nazi white supremacist who is supported only by other neo-nazi white supremacists (whether outspoken or closeted "alt-right").  If nothing else, any visible support of Spencer is a scarlet letter by which to identify those who should be mocked, shunned, and frequently punched in the face.

If you were in a band, and it had been said that it was the "official band of the alt-right," would you not come out to denounce it as well?

Perhaps Spencer (that coont) just really enjoys the silence?

They are wrong. A coont has both depth and warmth, and Spencer has neither attribute.

The problem being that the NPI and their fellow travelers are often cited by National Front and other WP motherf*ckers. He provides, along, with Stephen Miller's VDARE, intellectual and scholastic cover.

He's not especially good at what he does, but he gives cover for others to get their message out.

Because with little sh*ts like this that have traded in boots and braces for a jacket and tie, they NEED to be exposed for EXACTLY what they are. Not given a pass as something else. Stephen Miller may try to reduce his ties with Spencer, but the NPI IS one of his anti-immigration sites' best customers.

Because people give him a pass as the "Alt-Right" instead of "NAZI loving piece of sh*t" he's able to operate, and support a lot of efforts both here and in Europe.

No. He needs to be shown to folks for EXACTLY WHAT HE IS: a Neo-Nazi sack of shiat.

That may once have been true, but since his very public outing as an all-but-admitted white supremacist and neo-nazi, I doubt what he has to offer anyone else could be classified as much in the way of cover.  Being cited by National Front and their ilk does pretty much the opposite of lend any level of credibility.  His name has become toxic.  Anyone who doesn't distance themselves from him and denounce his messaging will be summarily assumed a supporter.  That will fly with a chunk of the far right, but thankfully they don't make a majority, and exposure to the light will eventually start to burn enough to shove them back under their wormy rocks.

You don't defeat hatred by ignoring it. If anything has become clear in the last year and a half with the rise of "alt-right" and downright white supremacist lunatics in politics and society, it's that they aren't the marginalized losers we hoped they became. They're out there, they're in line to get power if they don't already have power and positions in Congress and the administration, and they need to be fought loud and hard.

"David Duke? Oh, he's no one."

"Richard Spencer? Oh, he's no one."

"Steve King? Oh, he's no one and I don't live in his state anyway."

"An unsettling mob of increasingly unashamed racists on YouTube are getting louder and building a following? Oh, they're no one."

The one-two punch of King and farking Jontron in the last week make it pretty clear that white supremacists have a voice, they have pull, and they're getting support. And that has to be fought, not farking ignored.

I rather like the fact that he got called a coont by the singer of his favorite band. Almost as good as that other twat who got mocked and laughed at by Jay Bentley after proclaiming conservatism as the new punk rock.

Maybe you should step it up a notch. Maybe some laws stripping their citizenship or specifying who they can (or can't) marry. You know, it probably wouldn't hurt if you bar them from commerce or government and if they continue to act in a way you find distasteful you should strengthen your message by smashing the windows of their places of business. Rounding them up might be a good solution too.  They are, after all, no better than rats or other vermin...

I love that when someone on Fark says "We probably shouldn't ignore neo-nazis, and call them out as neo-nazis at every turn", there is always some totally concerned sack of shiat to wade in and say, almost to a tee, "Yeah maybe we should round them up and put them in concentration camps, too!  Irony much?"  No, you dipshiat, it's not.  You taking their argument and drawing a bunch of shiat around it that was never implied or intended doesn't make them "just as bad", it makes you just as stupid as the neo-nazis.  But then again, you're tacitly defending neo-nazis, so that shouldn't surprise anyone.

As someone whose been stabbed by a little WP sh*thead, and worse as part of a bouncing staff trying to make sure HE had equal protection, can I just say: put down the pipe.

I happily will punch the living sh*t out of some WP motherf*ckers, and I'm not going to apologize for enjoying their pain, because you CANNOT fight these little sh*ts by ignoring them. They've been ignored half their lives which is WHY they turned to this  sh*t. You can't make them great martyrs. You need to embarrass them. Make them slink back into the shadows.

Igoring them just a let's them scuttle around and pretend that the world just isn't "ready" to be made free of the mud people, because people are too weak. That's why we STILL have these Neo-Nazi sacks of crap. People ignore them, and they just fester like an infected pimple...

Sick strawman. You really burned the fark out of that one.

Toughen your skin a little and understand that punching a Nazi isn't the same as murdering them. Shouting down hate speech as a bystander isn't the same as banning the speech by law. Requesting respect for your loved ones' personal choices about gender and sexuality isn't the same as forcing every church to gay marry every churchgoer. And seeing Nazis, white supremacists, and the other shiatlords you're soft-defending as bad people isn't the same as seeing them as non-people.

My boots aren't for stomping on throats. They're for keeping my footing at the top of your pathetic attempt at a slippery slope for my temerity of being anti-Neo-Nazi.

But yes, punching someone out in a bar for calling your family trash isn't as bad as burning a cross on someone's yard and hanging someone from a farking tree, so... yeah, that's some pretty false equivalence you have going on.

fark your slippery slope fallacies and your constant refusal to face the dark, hateful bullshiat the recent rise of politically vocal racism, antisemitism, and fundamental bigotry has been building towards. You refuse to admit that this is a problem, and when confronted with how much of a problem it is and how much momentum it's picking up you jump into politically correct histrionics, whinging about how the people who want to fight Nazis are the REAL Nazis here for daring to say that the rhetoric being spread is genuinely dangerous.

The first thing I said? I didn't talk about punching Nazis or any "physical oppression." The closest thing I came to that was referencing the "one-two punch" of Steve King and JonTron, and I was being figurative. As in, those two people spewing very racist shiat in the same week was itself a one-two punch showing just how widespread and accepted this bigotry has become.
