I know you don't see the point of my post because you didn't address it. You just tried to say that I argued that Atomwaffen Division is not a racist orgainization.
You did not cite more than 1 source in your comment that I responded to so I responded to you using only 1 source. I don't read minds and I am not doing any research for you (other than trying to help you make valid arguments rather than emotional pleas, ad hominem's, reduction to the absurd, etc etc [again see Chapter 7 of the book I told you about previously]).
I addressed your usage of SPLC as a source for who is designated as a hate group in the US. You obviously did not read any more of the articles I linked other than the first couple sentences.
You have this (liberal) habit of injecting things into my comments that I haven't said. Your brain seems to uncontrollably project additional things into what I say. You should stop doing that and simply address my comments. Since your mind reading powers are so powerful you should try to be an international mediator. Maybe you can clear things up between North Korea and the United States (reduction to the absurd argument
Lastly, I have tried to help you out by pointing to a very good resource to help you make competent arguments. You don't seem to have a desire to do that. "It's not worthwhile to reason with people if they're irrational
, Epstein, 2011, (p.29).
