Real, serious calls to genocide.

That is a very interesting point.

Let’s assume that I respect your very substantial apparent expertise in the psychological realm.

If I understand your distinction, you are distinguishing between some blowhard screen beret and and a true genocidal monster. I don’t doubt for a second that you have some insights into how to tell the difference, or that the majority of posters at those wingnut sites are more bark than bite.


I take the view that a call for genocide is a call for genocide. I also take the view that there are certainly some number of those posters who would like it to happen if they could make it happen. There is clearly some sort of slope where the idea goes from unthinkable - to acceptable - to would encourage it to happen - to would want to participate.

Many of those comments are prima facie evidence that they are already at the “would encourage it to happen” phase.

Much like our previous discussion, I agree that there are all sorts of subtleties that we could go into, but, the end result is the issue.
