You say that like a group of 1000+ people can’t accomplish some bad things. The Klan is also somewhat ad hoc. It has an official membership of about 5k, but it has satellite groups, unaffiliated/unlisted members, and folks that agree with them but aren’t members. Down the road from me is "The Order of the Eagle", a Klan affiliated group of about 300 people. A handful of people in a small town could do some damage. Hell, it only takes one person to commit a murder, one person to beat a guy half to death, 1 or 2 to burn a cross in someones yard.

At this point you’re just being a contrarian.

no I am just saying that even if they had 10000 members they aren’t the force they were back then….they can do damage yeah but that will ultimately diminish any lingering power that they have now.

Your point? A diminished threat can still be a threat. A dull knife can still cut.

Also, said knife can be sharpened. The Klan doubled in size throughout 2016. That’s why they are recruiting in this area, that’s the point of those fliers. The Klan is a symptom of a growing problem, the rise in race based supremacy groups.

This trend concerns me. It might not concern you, but you don’t live around as many of these people as I do.

Probably not, but they don’t really need it to be. In the age of mass communication it’s enough for them to look big, and spread their message of hate. Other groups will follow, other groups will take up the mantle.

The Klan represents an idea. A terrible, dangerous idea.

so we have antifa-sjw fuckwits on the left and alt-right/klansmen on the right….but people keep saying they are a minority even though they are vocal enough to feel like they are the majority. Put on top of that the media, left and right, being dickbags and making things worse!

Numbers are meaningless, even a minority can cause trouble. In a room full of 1000 people, all it would take is one of them to cause some havoc.

As we’ve seen with every hate group/terrorist group ever, in history.

They’ve always been very small in comparison to the population.

That was still only 14-15% of the adult male population. Also, at that time, I wouldn’t really classify them as extremist anymore. That was during their "we’re a social club for white values" phase.

The actual extreme elements of the group, the guys that went around doing the bad shit, was still around 10k or a little higher.

Don’t you just love it when people kick you from an online game for no reason and then start to insult you? :D

It’s pathetic…

The other day, an old man with severe intellectual disabilities called me a "drug fucked uncle fester" because I had the temerity to hold the door open for him while sporting a shaved head.

At the time, It pissed me off that I had to smile and take it and couldn’t belt him one.
Today, It’s making me laugh at how random and petty it was.

Ha-ha, charade you are!
I hate how there aren’t any good Saturday morning cartoons on anymore, and how they were being phased out when I was growing up. If you turn on any of the five major networks, you don’t see good non-educational cartoons for Saturday morning programming; in fact, for the most part, you don’t see any cartoons at all. It’s now just animal documentaries and boring old news.

"Oh, but what about cable or satellite?" My family is poor! We can’t afford that crap. "Oh, but what about streaming?" We live out in the middle of nowhere. Wild Blue holds a monopoly on the internet we get here, and it only allows for 25 gigabytes of upload/download use (this includes streaming) per month. My only option is to go out and watch cartoons using someone else’s internet connection, and can you imagine the weird looks I would get for watching Teen Titans in public? I’m twenty! I’m supposed to be an adult!

And imagine, if you will, me as a kid. It was Saturday morning, time to watch cartoons, time to take a break from the pressures of school after a long week before that and a weekend of homework afterwards. So I turn on the TV, and what is on? Nothing but crappy E/I shows. Dude, I don’t want school to be forcefully inserted into my one escape from school!

I know right? It certainly took me by suprise. I haven’t been working around disabled people very long but so far they’ve all been very nice. Then this guy shows up and abuses everyone in the office, I was just the first person to cop it.

It’s just something that happens I guess.

Appropriate the term. Get a shirt saying PROUD DRUG FUCKED UNCLE FESTER and next time block the door for that buffoon and start dancing wildly in front of him.

The shit I’ve seen my 4 year old nephew watching on youtube is some of the weirdest shit I’ve ever seen.
Think a very badly animated Joker and Spiderman fighting over who gets to marry elsa while peppa pig is chased around by carnage weird.

There has been studies on the upcoming Gen Z.
From what they found, at least in America. Gen Z kids appear to be leaning more towards the political right in terms of views. In contrast to the millennial gen X that tend to lean more liberal.

I know a lot of people like to blame the rise of 24/7 cartoon channels (most of which don’t even show cartoons anymore) and online streaming for the downfall of Saturday morning toons, but I personally blame it on a 1990 government ruling that every one of the network stations is required to show at least three hours of educational children’s programming (and a 1996 FCC ruling that further enforced it). Isn’t it just great how old people like to ruin things for children?

@Shirani
I miss them. I wish that one of these Saturday mornings I could just turn on the TV and see some good toons playing again instead of animal documentaries everywhere I look.

@Zincy
Boy, wouldn’t I like to have access to any of those? But no, thanks to Wild Blue, I can only stream limitless videos after midnight, when I’m already too tired out to watch cartoons, so I either have to move to a city or some place with better Internet or just deal with it.

More right than Gen Y, but still less right than gen X or the BB. This puts them closer to the middle.

Gen X is more right, they started off leaning left, but moved rightward at the beginning of the 90s.
