Thanks. I will be upfront and say I have said things that are or could be seen as racist, sexist, LGBT-phobic, and anti-Semitic.

The loons, whether 'black nationalist' or 'white nationalists' will be relegated back to the fringes where they belong.
It worked for Trump.

You want your voice to be heard but not those you disagree with? Everyone gets a platform. Everyone decides which platform they will stand on. It's their decision, not mine.

Social media IS an echo chamber; that's core to its practical function.

My thing is this. The sinister 6 all have ruined social media in the past 5 years. Some of these echo chambers even led to real life violence.

Dillion woof who shot those black folks at church was a white nationalist. Elliot Roger who went on a shooting spree in California was mgtow/incel. The Dallas shooter who killed those 8 cops was pro black, the guy who killed Heather Hayer with his car was during an alt right unite the right rally, sjws also commit violent crimes like the professor who beat up a man with a chain bike lock. I'm not sure if sjws have yet to commit extreme acts of violence like other echo chambers have. Same could be said for feminist. However a male feminist did round house kick a woman in Toronto over opposing views. All of such people are being radicalized by others on social media.

Who are the sinister six echo chambers. Alt right, mgtow white nationalist, pro black, feminist and social justice activist/warrior. Also all groups claimed to be victims in some way, shape, form or capacity.

Steve Bannon was Trump's 'chief strategist.' The 3 main planks of his platform were 1)address immigration; 2)bring back manufacturing; 3)stay out of 'pointless' foreign wars. Nothing to do with ID politics.

Trump installed several Jews in his cabinet, a black HUD secretary, and an Indian UN ambassador. He sent his kid Baron to a 40% non-white school, and dated a black model for a while before he met Melania. The notion that he's some kind of white supremacist, or even that he tried to appeal to white supremacists is laughable on its face.

You can still date outside your race and still be a racist or bigot, or still hold racist views. I don't think trump is a white supremacist or racist. But he did make bigoted remarks and bigoted views in the past.

Hmm....didn't see White Nationalism listed....nor cozying up to the Billionaire here (bad enough) let alone the Trillion dollar folks in the Gulf.

BB has everything to do with ID politics and it's one of MANY billionaire financed right wing echo chambers.

Is THIS part of the above?

"He’s making the rounds in the United States and abroad, talking about uniting “the Judeo-Christian West” in a clear call for violence against the Islamic world"

Was Fundie Religion tied in with the Roman Catholic Empire part of the "ID"?
It would seem most people would want to run far and fast from the Catholic Church, giving the continuous abuses of it from the inside.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-e...-idUSKCN1LU176

Because that's what he is doing.......

As usual, it appears we have "opposite backwards world" in yet another drug and booze addled billionaire financed fraud. Remember when Bannon tried to vote where he didn't live?
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...on-voter-fraud

Nothing new here. Millionaires being paid by billionaires to lie to you and I and take the money....

I can promise you that Bannon loves Russia...he sees them as part of the Great New World Order built around a Middle Ages View of Catholic Orthodoxy (and Russian Church is related).
