With that amount of vitriol it's ripe for exploitation.

Fourth alias so far as far as I’m aware. Maybe fifth?

New names, same old misrepresentation of reality.

"Are you a statistician or a political scientist, Indo Dreaming? Both?

Have you been approached?"

Just an estimate based on years of posting here, there is maybe about 20 to 30 regular posters here and only a couple conservatives like myself & Optimist maybe more? (D-Rex?)

And then you have a couple posters like Blowin or Sypkan that seem to hold some conservative ideals but also hold lots of ideals from the left they basically hate both Labor & Liberal, hate the left and right, i think they are hard to label.

No off course i havent been approached, and id tell them to fuck off if i had and report them if it was anything that was breaking the law, im a proud conservative but that does not at all mean i think white people are superior in any way, my wife is Asian my kids have brownish skin, half of my friends are Asian even have a few mates with indigenous ancestry including my best mate who was my best man.

But seriously if you were some true far right extremist white supremacy group you would much much much more luck targeting FB groups where you get actually quite radical views and you can actually contact the person, go read the comment section on even news related FB articles related to immigration or race related issues by anything from ABC to Sky news or ACA and you will read some comments that are pretty out there.

ha ha okay....

You know it's funny, i got accused of always using the phrase "fake left" the other day, and im thinking WTF?...i don't use that phrase....so googled the phrase "fake left Swellnet" "fake left swellnet indo dreaming"

Not one hit....only hits from you and Sypkan, but i will probably be accused now of going back and editing them all out...like id seriously bother.

I think last year we hit the peak of media stupidity when the Proud boys were labeled a white supremest group by some and even their Latino/Cuban leader labeled a white supremest.

I mean here's a pic of the guy (enrique tarrio) being a nationalist or even holding concerns about immigration into the country you live, sure doesn't mean your a white supremest, people from countries all around the world be it Asia, Africa, Middle East, or the West of all different skin colours, hold nationalistic views.

You have to love his T-shirt that pretty much sums it up.

There is actually a good reason though why whole Proud boys chapters are made up of Latinos like Cubans, it has to do with the reason they fled places like Cuba in the first place.

BTW. Just for the record I dont actually have the concerns on immigration that others do., but i do get where they are coming from.

Yeah well no surprises there it is 2021 after all.

Anyway he has said

"I denounce white supremacy. I denounce anti-Semitism. I denounce racism. I denounce fascism. I denounce communism and any other -ism that is prejudiced towards people because of their race, religion, culture, tone of skin."

In regard to his own ethnicity, he has said, "I'm pretty brown, I'm Cuban. There's nothing white supremacist about me."

Actually technically he has Afro-Cuban ancestry.

Tarrio is just a front look at who founded and runs Proud Boys then look at their activities.

Seems Canada disagrees with you also.

Either way they are a nasty bit of work.

I guess "one mans freedom fighter is another mans terrorist"

I know if i had groups like Antifa in my neighbour hood terrorising people, destroying ad burning property and business, and authorities weren't dealing with them in the manner you would expect, id be out there fighting against them and i would hope others would join me be no matter their political views..

I've been loading up on the homemade CBD oil at night and tuning into Carl Sagan's classic old series Cosmos of late. It's a cool drift-off, man.

Carl is so daggy, but also so into it, that he drags you along with him. You can't resist that kind of pure enthusiasm. We all had a science teacher like that, yeah?

Anyway, in cosmos related news:
