Isn’t it a good thing that he’s against the kkk

What would be better is some introspection and self reflection from this guy on why racists support the same things he does.

If they were capable of introspection they would not be trump supporters. He is probably mad that they are Soros backed antifa super soldiers in KKK costumes just to make them look bad.

Fox told them that the KKK are still democrats and he's probably confused as to why they support Trump.

They wouldn't be Republican

Eh, watch the video. Dude clearly hates the KKK and hates them.

I think Trump supports are, as a rule, stupid or racist or both. But a dumb person hating racists is still a good thing, even if we wish he was smart enough to see reality.

Ummmm.... wat (⊙_⊙)?

u/Molenium Sep 22 '22

Too true.

u/ElectricFleshlight Sep 22 '22

He'll hopefully start to wonder why he and the other dude were the only ones yelling at the KKK, while all the other Trump supporters around him just watched.

To be fair, this is more an issue with the two party system than it is with individual voters. In America it's really easy to vote against your own interests in one area for the sake of voting for your own interests elsewhere.

It's like when the Peloton CEO got backlash for supporting Trump and people were calling him racist, but really it was because Trump would give his business a favorable tax break and he decided that benefit outweighed whatever negatives came along with it.

"I just did it for the money" - that's my go to excuse too.

Hell, lots of social issues are money. Look at student debt.

People will hate you for saying this but then say “back the blue, no matter who” a minute later.

u/yujabes Sep 22 '22

Hit the nail on the head. The guy is gonna have a revelation soon, I have a feeling he has relatives or friends that KKK wouldn't like...

u/Molenium Sep 22 '22

I sure hope so.

u/herptydurr Sep 22 '22

I don't think introspection is going to help. The reality is that he's probably just as bigoted... he just doesn't want the KKK dude to proudly parade those beliefs for all to see. And in this specific aspect, I kind of respect the KKK dude more. At least he owns up to his despicableness.

u/Molenium Sep 22 '22

It’s true, his problem does seem to be more along the lines of “you’re making us look bad,” than “I disagree.”

1

u/Hara-Kiri Sep 22 '22

That's certainly a thing with some of them. They're not ashamed to be racist, they just know you can slowly convert people if you don't start off so explicitly.

u/SCP-Agent-Arad Sep 22 '22

KKK members probably agree with you on at least a few issues.

2

u/Molenium Sep 22 '22

Oh, stranger on the internet who does not know me, please tell me, what would those issues be?

7

u/yeats26 Sep 22 '22

There are literally an infinite number of issues people can have opinions about, nobody is wrong about every single one. Even a broken clock etc, etc. Just to pick a random low hanging bipartisan fruit, I wouldn't be surprised if racists also supported reforms to curb insider trading for elected officials.

u/SCP-Agent-Arad Sep 22 '22

It could be any number of things. My point is, your logic is flawed and hypocritical.

1

u/Molenium Sep 22 '22

I mean, I’m sure we both agree that you should eat food when hungry and that you need air to breathe.

But such generalizations are so broad that they are pretty much meaningless.

I am sure there is nothing that we agree on in terms of what makes them KKK members and what makes me think people who join that organization are complete asswipes who shit themselves daily.

u/Anthaenopraxia Sep 22 '22

They oppose all forms of communism and socialism. Of the 1000 iterations of those ideologies I'm sure there's at least one variant you both don't want to see in the US.

If you're on the side of nazis, maybe you're a tiny bit nazi yourself? Just a smidge?

u/cristiano-potato Sep 22 '22

Bruh. What a fucking shit tier take. Literal terrorist groups have sometimes voiced support for candidates. Does that suddenly mean every supporter needs to “reflect” on why terrorists support the same things they do?

This is guilt by association. Be better. Do better.

6

u/Molenium Sep 22 '22

Yes… they should.

If a terrorist is really into and supportive of your campaign, you should definitely think about why that is and if there is anything you should be doing differently.

Is that really such a hard concept?

u/chasteeny Sep 22 '22

It's probably not that hard for him to self reconcile to be honest. Like there's fascists in US/Canada that support some populist policies like healthcare for all, but I know I don't agree with their other positions so it bothers me none that I have positions in common with fascists. Idk, just food for thought. I think it's a bit more nuanced

No worries man. I get what you’re saying to some degree, but it seemed to make a lot of assumptions about me that just didn’t ring true.

Like, I know as humans were all going to have some commonalities. I’m not saying everyone who thinks the way I do is going to be right, or even a good person, but if someone that I find abhorrent is enthusiastically agreeing with me, I at least have the presence of mind to wonder why and think if it’s a superficial commonality or one that actually reveals something about myself.

u/WingedBeing Sep 22 '22

Wasn’t meant as an indictment against you. Was meant in the royal “you” of the post at large. But it’s also not my place to say anything to try and change the hearts and minds of others who have already made them up, so have a good day.

u/HamburgerEarmuff Sep 22 '22

That's kind of silly. It's like asking Biden voters why the Chinese Communist Party supported the same candidate that they did or asking people who enjoy Wagner why Hitler liked them so much.

It's a silly associative ad hominem.

In a two party system who gives a shit, garbage system garbage results.
