Id rather a guy that actually uses his thought process rather than simply restate what they hear in mainstream media. I’d rather someone say things that are idiotic than someone that tries to shutdown conversation entirely and calls for censorship.Afro_Vacancy wrote: ↑6 months agoFor whatever reason, you're trying really hard to polish a turd.
The "actual research" that you refer to is him simply spending a lot of time on hate sites and reposting whatever image he finds that agrees with his worldview with him never bothering to check if the information is accurate or not. That isn't actual research, simply looking up and memorizing content isn't research, there needs to be a critical feedback component. Ignoring it isn't "dumb" -- what would be dumb would be to give crackpots the time of day.
A few months ago, a crackpot sent me a book in which he argued that the universe is a Fibonacci sequence. You would tell me that ignoring that "actual research" would be dumb ... Well that's what I did, I spent a few moments looking at the book, I threw it in the recycling bin, and moved on.
Ironically, That Guy would be better off spending less time on this hobby and more time on the hobbies that he fears: film, television, and video games.
Specifically looking at Johnson’s post for example he countered anti-semitism by saying his favourite artists are Jewish, this hardly counters an anti-racialist narrative.
The anti-immigration sentiment is legitimate and has been legitimized by the mainstream left who at this point (most of the democratic nominees anyway) are outright advocating for healthcare for illegal immigrants as one example. When you push to that level people like That Guy sound more serious than the crackpots who say we should decriminalize border crossings, offer them all a path to citizenship and free healthcare even before that. There is little legitimate danger of a Nazi uprising, there is a legitimate danger of huge cultural and economic issues arising from mass, non specific immigration. The end of white majority in countries created by whites is something that genuinely should be considered for a variety of reasons.
I do agree with your last point however. Add tinder to that list.
