    I watched the video. Wish I didn't. It was surreal...almost like a video game. Had to stop and remind myself that this was real.

    Shit.

    Briefly I had the thought that 8chan could be struck from the Internet. But if it was, its members would just swarm around and quickly settle at a new location. They are highly organised and fast moving. Plus the core white supremacist groups such as Knights Templar form anchor points for these fuck wits so theyíll always have somewhere to gather.

    In the manifest he notes that in his time interacting with various WS groups he saw that they were disproportionately represented by cops and members of the military. I had some idea that it was the case, but itís certainly eye opening when itís spelled out so clearly like this. How does a society deal with something like this?

    There is a lot of speculation from psychologist etc that many of the people in front line military are sociopathic and the only reason they can function is due to the extreme training and order following they put you through.

    That may be true for frontline, and frontline military may be attractive for people who want to live out certain fantasies, but not all military is in that role, and cops certainly aren’t either. So I don’t think that’s the issue here.

    This article touches on a few of the tropes that online hate groups tend to follow.

    So he's been living around 1400 ft (or around a 30-40 second drive away) from my inlaws house since he's been in my city, which means i've driven past 'it' (the house, and the &$@!) many, many times.
