    Instead of banning people you disagree with, try growing a set of testicles!

    Racists are easy to debate. Their stock-in-trade is ignorance and broad brush painting.

    They remind me of liberals......

    They can't take over the site. The racists we have here already are generally ignored and/or ridiculed, also likely kept out of social groups. I know I don't invite racists to my own personal group.

    Even if he had some sort of point, hating any group or groups of people is not against the rules, so banning people for "being racist" likely won't happen. It's a slippery slope, anyway, as it's just banning people you disagree with.

    It's the purpose of this thread. You disagree with them, thus you want them banned.

    Yeah except "Hate speech" is in the forum rules when you sign up.

    I agree.

    Used to be, they hid behind their mommy's bed linens. As we saw in Charlottesville, if they show their faces, they face consequences and they cry like the cowardly babies they are.

    The Internet is a cyber version of pulling a pillow case over their heads to hide their identity.

    They're the dregs, human garbage and they haven't shut down the first amendment - yet.

    Let them post - so decent people can spit on them.

    Regarding hate speech- I'd like to see the definition that the forum uses.

    I've seen a shit load of hatred and hate speech - almost all from LWNJ's, severely butthurt over Trump.
