I very well will compare all the negative groups in history. I hold not just the dictators, but the people of those ideologies responsible for the loss of life. So yes, I will view communists as worse than white supremacists. That is my opinion. You have a different opinion. That's alright. Will I "please stop" and conform to your opinion? I think not.
If my next door neighbor kills me because he doesn't like the color of my eyes...then that offense is as bad as any other hate crime originating from those who claim to be labeled or associated with a group noted for violence.
we don't have to tolerate bigotry or hatred, just because they use polite language.

As far as I am concerned, white supremacists do not deserve any less consideration than any other enemy-- they are honored foes until they dishonor themselves. It is regrettable that most of them will do so readily when challenged, but I am learning to expect little better from anyone that espouses a strong political philosophy; our diseased culture no longer understands honor, and confuses disrespect for evidence of superiority. You can see it any time we go to war, in the disgusting way that we talk about our enemies.
White supremacy, and other forms of bigotry, are allowed under Debate Politics rules as long as they fall within the guidelines of Rule 18. I wish that this rule were not necessary because it stifles many opinions that I consider legitimate topics for discussion-- and quite a few of my own political opinions-- but whatever benefit we would gain from allowing people to openly endorse violent or discriminatory policies would be immediately drowned in the torrents of filth that pour forth whenever these topics arise. It is simply impossible to maintain the tone of the forum when people are openly using racial slurs and calling for genocide; stifling legitimate discussion of these issues is an unfortunate side effect.Originally Posted by Forum Rules
