I think they have to commit a terrorist act first.
Though I understand why the more reactionary conservatives want them silenced.

Believe what you want.
It is a fact that after several pages of me asking for an example,
of how this is not a racism conference, none of you are able to provide one,
Your question is irrelevant to this thread since you haven’t established that the attendees at the conference are actually racist.
So what rights that POC have are the attendees proposing to take away?
Obviously, there is no benefit to having an open dialogue with racists. I gain nothing by politely listening to people who think I am subhuman,
The genocidal nature of communism is well established by scholarship.
Please provide a link to mass killings instigated by capitalists.
You argued that antifa are terrorists because they are associated with an ideology that has killed thousands.
By this logic of yours, all capitalists are terrorists. This even includes people who are pacifists.
Do you agree that it is illogical to assume that someone is a terrorist just because they have an ideology that is historically associated with megadeaths?
I disagree. And, before you point it out, yes, that does include rejecting white supremacy since it is a system of belief with genocidal outcomes.
Then you also disagree with your own argument that antifa are terrorists because they are communists.
He has not openly and consistently condemned racism.
And in fact, he supports racists by condemning anti-racism activists.
Why is it not true? Simply because it doesn’t fit your worldview? Please explain why you disagree that there is a connection between far left and far right socialism.
Because far right socialism is an oxymoron and does not exist.
I am not familiar with all attendees. Please list which ones have links to the far right.
Tim Pool, for one.

You're assuming that antifa will never kill anyone based on their past behavior, yet you assume Ngo instigated things differently. Interesting.
No. In both cases, both parties are consistent.
See, because if you allow for that, then there's no reason to dismiss the the very real possibility that antifa might kill someone simply because they may decide to make their point in a different manner.
Again, this is a completely wrong understanding of what I wrote.
And it's hard to fight back when you've got a mob attacking you. It was pretty clear that all he could do was try to deflect their unprovoked and unwarranted attacks.
Not in my experience. But Ngo is trying to look like a victim, so he would not be actually interested in a fist fight.
You seem to believe that there's something glamorous about fighting. I'll go ahead and suggest that you've never been in a real fight. If you had been (and I laugh just imagining it), you'd know otherwise...
I lived for a long while in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Until about a decade ago, they used to have this custom there where groups of young white men would get into cars and cruise around looking for young guys by themselves to beat up.
They usually targeted immigrants, indigenous kids, people of colour, and LgBT people. They always attacked in a group. Because that is what cowards and bullies do.
So, unfortunately, I have been in fights. Quite a few. Most of them against more than one opponent.
