Do you have a source for this? I have not seen this. All I've seen is the rise in leftist violence and attacks.

Thanks for the link.

I read the ADL article and it seems to me that these numbers are just incidents of people passing out pamphlets or holding a meeting.

Why is this a big deal? I would think that is their 1st amendment right to do so. While I am strongly opposed to the views of white supremacists, it still is their constitutional right to meet and distribute flyers.

According to the SPLC there are only about 5,000 KKK members nationwide. People who don't agree with them, can just walk by and not take their pamphlet. If enough people just ignore these bigoted idiots, they will fade away.

I think this is less concerning than the rise in violence being exhibited by the far-left.

this isn't about right/left.
this is about radicalization,and that comes in all flavors.
and should be a concern for all of us.

But how do you address "radicalization" without stepping on the 1st amendment?

you utilize the very free speech they are using to spread their bullshit.
imo,the extreme left abuses free speech to shut down free speech,far more than the extreme right.

which is borderline insanity.
I WANT the racists,the bigots,and the muppet class to have the right to say whatever twisted ideology they wish to promote.so we can see them openly.

an ideology built on a house of cards,extreme bias or prejudice,cannot withstand scrutiny when brought into the market of ideas.

those ideologies are quickly exposed as having very little validity when challenged.there will always be bad ideas,and the point is to not eradicate all bad ideas,but to bring them to light so we all can benefit.

intelligent people will adapt to new information,and change their views accordingly.ideologues seek only the safety and comfort of their own confirmation bias,and have no desire to question their own belief system.

if we restrict,or attempt to silence these ideologues.then they simply go underground,and become their own echo chamber.

it is in this darkness that some of us become radicalized.
this is not a quick process,but rather a slow burn,where their ideology is carefully crafted,molded,and tended with a constant re-affirmation that their ideology is "right".

the only way to combat this,in my opinion,is to drag the ideologue out into the light and expose the fundamental flaw in their belief systems.

that make sense?
free speech is vital.
