Yes, let’s change the subject to the KKK because you’re losing the argument again. You should just hurl lame insults instead.

Yes, he did all of those things.

Oh....so your winning argument is that some hate groups are bad and some are fine. Wow.

Yes....he said he did those things and you believe it because you believe what the handlers tell you.

Pretty sure that is a sign that was used to troll progressives.

Flashing white supremacy signs in order to troll progressives! lol white supremacy is so funny. Just ask right wingers!

According to the website Know Your Meme, as a prank, 4chan users in 2017 launched a campaign to flood social media with posts linking the "OK" hand gesture to the white power movement. Commenters on the message board appropriated images of people posing in the White House and other locations making the hand symbol as proof that it was catching on.

Segal said that while many of those images were misconstrued by users on the online message boards, the number of people espousing hate while using the gesture has grown so widespread that it can no longer be considered a prank.

Segal pointed to the suspected white supremacist in Christchurch, New Zealand, accused of killing 51 worshippers at two mosques in March, who flashed the "OK" hand gesture during an initial court appearance.

"Over the past couple years, we've seen that the hoax was essentially successful in being applied by actual white supremacists," Segal said.

Look folks. Sure, there was a complete trial where both sides got to present evidence. And sure, a jury of our peers heard the case of both sides and made a verdict. But, there were some GHers that have followed this story through their favorite media sources and Twitter feed and therefore know the reality of the situation much better. You would be crazy not to accept their version as reality.

And I have no problems with it. I just find it hilarious how righties are rallying around this kid.....holding him up as a hero or something. Regardless of self-defense.....kid was there adding to the problem. He was playing games. The jury was instructed to dismiss character issues....which is fine. But he's on video punching a girl multiple times in the face.....after being on bond.....kid threw on a shirt that said "Free as Fuck" and hung out at the bar with a bunch of proud boys while posing for pictures flashing a white supremacy sign.

These are the kinds of people that the right wing celebrates and reveres. It's the reason why your party still rallies around Trump. Dirtbags are glorified. It's really odd how the right is so fascinated with scummy dickheads.

the problem I have with your response is it grants way too much power to the people your/we’re against. Personally, I find it ineffective.

It’s trying so hard to be righteous that you end up doing their work for them. IMHO.

Yeah. That makes sense. Here is Mark McCloskey, a fellow who wants to be the US Senator from Missouri. For some reason, he decides that going to Kenosha helps him do that, and posing with these guys is a good idea. One of them has decided Covid is real, the other is pie eyed. All cool, nothing to see here.

Dude... Justin Jefferson makes that same sign when he dances after he scores a touchdown. Is he a proud boy too?

Easy choice that 99+% of Americans pick: actual courts and laws.
