Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

"Would it be okay if people who are truly progressive -- that is, renouncing violence in all forms -- declined the so-called "protection" that this group of mixed up people wants to offer?"

Pacifists tried it their way in Charlottesville until they were circled and huddled inside a church. Armed anti-fascists took the blunt of the violence so the pacifists wouldn't get hurt. You can beat your swords and shields to plows and shears, but it doesn't mean the fascists will. They are incensed by pacifism.

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

A lot of fascist enablers in the comments here, taking various forms:

* Fascists in cover, using false equivalencies to forward a narrative that both sides are just as bad (yeah, wanting to gas jews is just as bad as not wanting to?), in order to keep liberals from going left and opposing them, when they're acutely aware liberals will never explicitly join them, even though liberals have a history of supporting fascists in the end, as they did in the Weimar Republic

* Pacifist concern trolls who would rather let the fascists kill people in silence rather than hear those people fight back, because their personal comfort is more important than the ability of other people to live, since they know the people they claim to abhor so much don't have them in their sights

* Denialist concern trolls begging the question of how fascism and white supremacy are defined. I'll lay these out for you:
- Fascism: corporate and government elite in collusion to maintain a strict hierarchy, modified by extreme "futurist" mentality and obsession with systemic efficiency, fueled by a complete rejection of egalitarianism
- White supremacy: the belief that whites are both somehow physiologically superior and must own and control everything on the planet, at the expense of (and often by the killing of) other ethnic groups

* Outright reactionaries who are incapable of introspective thought, taking criticism as signs they are "doing something right" which is a manifestation of an antisocial (in the clinical sense) worldview, who want to act with complete impunity, even - or especially - if it means the destruction of others or their works, because they get off to the idea of screwing someone else over, like sociopaths
