The drama on twitch today was beautiful. First you had the "debate" between Nick Fuentes, Sargon of Akkad, Destiny and Hasan Piker and then there was a teenage conspiracy theorist talking about the great replacement and chemtrails. I can't even count the dog whistles I've heard today.
Anyway the result is me getting blocked on birdsite by proponents of the white ethnostate. Worse things can happen on a Friday

However all of the drama made me think about platforming those special kind of racists and extremists. Apparently (judging by a twitter poll, so not really representative) people were more swayed towards the racists and neo-nazis in that debate which shouldn't be the case
