He’s complicit.

That's absurd. No one is complicit just for not joining in a protest.

Ngo's work as an "anti-antifa" journalist deserves to be criticized. If you gave a single solitary cuss about nuance, truth and fairness, rather than be so obsessed with virtue signalling and emotional pearl-clutching in a debate thread, you might have noticed that I've been very explicit about my dislike for violence not carried out in self-defense. This isn't me trying to justify the assault on Ngo. This is me rejecting the stupid notion that we cannot discuss the ways in which Ngo has acted like a grifter, propagandist and provocateur, which are relevant to this discussion regardless of what happened to him.

This is akin to saying that we could not criticize Hillary Clinton's work and ideas if she happened to be assaulted by a political opponent.

Empathy is good, but it should not be an unreasonable obstacle to finding the truth.

in regards to Ernst Röhm, its a bad argument. At this point, most people believe anybody who donned the swastika was as bad as the people doing the real bad stuff. Even if you were a soldier forced into service at the risk of your family and own life. I agree that antifa does as it pleases, but this is not a solid argument against the people who 'low-key' idolize these beliefs

You can use Google incognito. Sometimes that works.

And if all they were doing was opposing fascism then few would care. But they use violence and intimidation mostly against people who aren't fascist.

I am interested in the truth, and in having a debate about Andy Ngo's ideas and whether they are really 'far-right' as they have been characterised by some in the mainstream media, as all I've seen in the sources you and others have cited is criticism of the Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA movements, hardly a far-right propagandist.

And the reason why I'm bringing up victim-blaming is because that's what it looks like to me. A guy has been brutally attacked and hospitalised and people are trying to hand-wave it away or be ANTIFA apologists by arguing that someone he deserved it or was asking for it or actively agitated the attack against himself by simply saying things that ANTIFA disagrees with.

Nothing you just said has anything to do with what I've said.

Uh-huh. You know, I drove through the city yesterday on my way back to my house and I passed by the usual beggars on the streets. I didn't give any of them money because I'm kind of broke and I doubt they spend most of their money on food anyway.

Am I complicit in their homelessness for not giving them anything?

Unfortunately, it don't be like that. If you were in a federal government position, you'd be expected to represent *all* british people and improve the country for everyone - The fascists, communists, libertarians, conservatives, socialists. The fact that you think it's perfectly acceptable to discriminate against people in federal policy based on their beliefs so that you intentionally try to make their lives worse is astounding...And it'd give them a lot of legitimacy.
