On punching nazis
I've decided to appease the centrists. Instead of punching nazis, we'll murder them by drone with no due process.

It's okay to punch Nazis
I purport that it is perfectly ok to beat up the following types of people:

- Nazis - Neo-Nazis - KKK members - David Duke - White Supremacists -

It is also perfectly ok not to give a sh*t about the "free speech" of these people. Nobody has any obligation to debate with them or listen to their ideas.

Does anyone disagree with me?

Whether or not anyone thinks what you suggest might, or might not be OK, Jamiet99uk, I hold the view that this thread topic is definitely NOT what I want to see in the brave new forum with more decorum, as it advocates violence, imho.
Far better to dismiss these neo Nazis as ignorant, racist bigots. Win the "contest of ideas" with calm, rational contributions

"Nobody has any obligation to debate with them or listen to their ideas."

I agree with this statement. You're free not to listen to them but doing violence unto them is a crime. Political violence has no place in a free country.

When the "ideas" of a group can be summarised as "let's kill and/or persecute the blacks, the jews and the gays", I do not wish to engage in a "contest of ideas" with that group.

We literally already fought a World War over this crap.

I am aware that Zultar may ban me from the site for this thread.

But to be honest if this site is a place where I have to be ejected because my views might upset the KKK... well then I wouldn't want to be here anymore in any case.

Actually it is not okay. Every American in the United States has the freedom of speech and assembly. You are threatening violence on an entire group of people and also disenfranchising them of their constitutional rights.

You (myself included) may not agree with their speech, but in America they have a right to say it.

It's also possible that you, jamiet99uk, are falling into a response strategy that suits these types of extremist groups. Extremists like to polarise the debate, to reduce the discussion to simplistic propaganda, and to drown out any voices of moderate, sensible views. Their "stock in trade" is hate speech, so it suits them to reduce the discussion to a slanging match, in which volume and outrageous and offensive barbs count for more than calm reason.

"because my views might upset the KKK"

Your views are not the issue here. The issue is the supposed open incitement of violence. From what I'm reading here I don't think you are Jamie but, the mods may take it that way.

@ND: My position is that they should *not* have the right to freely advocate for the genocide of non-white people. It is not just ok, but right and proper, to prevent them from espousing those views, that programme.

Don't you get it Jamiet99uk ? If you get expelled, it will be because you are offending the moderates. WebDiplomacy is NOT the home of the KKK

Plus the forum at WebDiplomacy is not the USA. This is a website, not the public arena of a particular nation state.

Some of us actually have jobs to do, and I don't particularly like wasting my time with shit like this.

No, it's not ok to threaten or condone or "purport" violence on my site. I've made this abundantly clear.

Jamiet, if you can't follow the rules, you shouldn't be here. This has to be the fourth or fifth time I have addressed you specifically on this issue. I've silenced you until you can agree to abide by the rules or leave the site.

@MM: Well, I am offended by "moderates" who think that when an ACTUAL F*CKING NAZI stands up, gives a Nazi salute, and says "kill the blacks and jews", the correct response is to say "hmm, yes, I don't agree but I respect your right to hold that view".

I do NOT respect their right to hold that view.
