    Wong answer. Try again.

    Hatred, bigotry and racism has no place in this country. Even Trump condemned these animals.

    1. Do you not know how to communicate with others? You're doing it now. If you feel the need to speak directly to members of hate groups, I'm sure many have websites you can go to and post messages.
    If you are actually asking how you can convince hate groups to change their minds.....figure that out and your name will go down in history.

    2. Again, no one is saying you have to ignore anything. The only options are not to ignore something or to commit violence against that thing.
    If groups directly threaten or commit violence, there are laws against that. They should be arrested and charged.
    Do you know my religious affiliation or ethnicity? Do you know that I am not Jewish?

    You seem to have a problem with the idea that freedom of speech covers offensive speech. You or I may not agree with racism or bigotry, but that doesn't justify assault.

    Whatever the president may have said, racism and bigotry are not a valid justification for assault.

    Condemning someone is different from assaulting them or otherwise committing violent acts against them, which is where this all started.

    Correct. There are right ways and wrong ways to react to hateful rhetoric. Violence is worse than just saying things.

    Do you realize that you said doing what's legal is the wrong answer?
