Hypothetically, if I were defending those who participated in a protest but did not denounce the straight-up evil, violent ones, then I would appear sympathetic to the violent protesters. Glad you take your online battles so seriously, @RamsayBolton!

Also you might want to read up about the motte and bailey argument style, you leave yourself wide open to attack if you lack humility. Fortunately for you I am too much of a gentleman to take advantage of it!

@lafillefrancaise You may be proud of your heritage, but that doesn't change the fact that you've chosen a factually inaccurate user name. Not a great start. I'm defending PEOPLE from baseless accusations, completely different from defending the actions of convicted criminals. There's this thing called innocent until proven guilty, would you rather people be summarily executed? I don't know or care what David Duke said, I saw an opportunity to poke fun at the French and I took it. I guess you must be guilty by association of everything you haven't denounced, or don't even know about?

@MikeSF I agree, however, I think we can take comfort in the fact that the overwhelming majority of people are disgusted by the displays of white nationalism and white supremacy. These people are a tiny minority. Cultural libertarianism has exposed the toxicity of the regressive left, and it can and will do the same for the regressive right.

It's really sickening that this is happening on American soil

Like you, I am proud of my heritage. ;) If you are going to defend the alt-right people in Charlottesville and not denounce what was said by David Duke, you are guilty by association, my friend. Why show humility over the internet? Makes commenting less fun.

And if you're not going to demonstrate said skill perhaps you should demonstrate a little humility.

Yes, but by definition that would mean they are not French! If you possess such skill then maybe you should actually demonstrate it instead of making completely absurd and unfounded accusations.

Can people with French heritage not be American? News to me! I am also for intelligent political discourse, but I am incredibly skilled at pointing out flaws in your argument so that you can strengthen your case. Sorry, I guess?

@lafillefrancaise Yet your user name means "the French girl"... I'm for intelligent, impartial and evidence based political discourse, not baseless accusations, unlike you it would seem. Very sad.

Thanks, @Seattlegirl12! What can I say... I put that "elitist liberal education" to good use.

Hey @RamsayBolton ... Sweetheart, I'm American. Lol. My apologies that my grandfather fought and won several medals in WWII to prevent violent extremism from gaining more ground in this country. You're for "ethnic cleansing," as your homie David Duke said? Sad....

I'm pretty sure the French just surrendered in them - no fighting involved.

HOW is this happening in 2017?? In the United States? Am I crazy, or did we fight a few wars against scum like that?
