Fr, like you'd think others would jump in and be like "yeah, you make us look bad and make people think we support the kkl and are racist because you come to these events, you're not welcome!" But they all just look around and avoid eye contact

Meanwhile, you have someone walk by with a sign that literally just says "black lives matter", and based on the hundreds of hours of video documentation of similar situations, I guarantee you every one of them would be screaming their heads off at them.

Good on the dude in red, but really makes you think what he thinks everyone around him thinks, it seems like he believes they're on the same page, AND he's got a punisher logo on, so I'm sure he's "blue lives matter" dude... really interesting honestly. But glad he spoke up against the kkk!

but I see this as something to cheer on, not something to ridicule

Oh yeah no I agree with that, hope my comment didn't come off as ridiculing the guy? I thought it was pretty clear that I was saying he was doing yhe right thing?

Trump's never been anything but radical. It takes a special kind of lead poisoning to vote for a reality tv star.

I don't think you can say that for all Trump supporters, but I do think a lot of Trump supporters started out with the idea that they're fighting a corrupted system, specially when Hillary was around and Trump wasn't on the level of fire he is on now, which is why I believe to be the reason a lot of Trump voters left the movement or became more attached to Trump when his own failings and ideals started ramping up.

I think the person in the video is likely a good guy, but I say this as someone who was a radical right winger, he's but a useful idiot to advancing the normalisation of the same people he is verbally attacking here. I had a friend with that same level of vigor for non racist conservatism, that Trump was like a conservative but he wasn't racist/homophobic and out of touch and I believed him, after a couple of years he came to try and recruit me to a neo Nazi group. I hope this man gets out.

The Trump movement is made by and for radicals.
