    I can't believe I'm wasting my time over something I literally heard for the first time last week. Your second link has zero mention of this 3% group so how is that a source? Second, the first link has 1 guy wearing a patch.

    I looked up their actual patch, see here. It's a 3% instead of the stars in the American flag. This 1 guy in your article made a custom patch using the 3 but put over a confederate flag. It's not the groups actual symbol ??? I think it's super weird people can see how wrong it is to generalize minorities based on 1 or 2 bad individuals who don't represent the group, but then make huge leaps in logic that a pro-gun group is somehow the next Nazi party ????

    Be cause your answer was idiotic. Who is they? The organization, as publicly stated, doesn't seem to support anything like that. As a matter of fact, when searching I found an article (on the first page of a simple Google search) out of Washington where they (along with some leftist org) were vociferously speaking out against a white nationalist organization. You're reaching to find something to confirm some bigotry of your own. You're a simpleton as is anybody who has a problem with this kid's tattoos. I am 100% sure there are bigots in this group, just as I am 100% sure there are bigots in any group, and just as I am 100% sure you yourself are a bigot. However, the group's agenda does not appear to have any bigotry in its publicly stated objectives. The kid should keep the ink, and if he simply agrees with the agenda they publish on their website, he should be proud of it.

    How armed leftwing and rightwing groups united against racism

    From the article:

    "
    Aaron sees even the opportunity to have a dialogue as progress and something that not all such groups would be open to.

    “They’re not all a monolith,” he said, adding that some on the left mistakenly saw the Three Percenters as a single, top-down organization.

    “We recognise strong disagreements and we bring them up,” he said of conversations about groups with whom the Three Percenters fraternise.

    “They’ve said from the start that they dislike white supremacist movements,” he said. While applauding the rightwingers’ stance on Patriot Front, he said: “Patriot Prayer is a violent, entry-level fascist organisation who have attacked community groups, meetings and individuals.”

    Do yourself a favor, and look up the term monolith. It may help you understand why your post is idiotic.

    By the way, now 30 pages in, and still no evidence of bigotry from the kid and no evidence of anything even controversial from their website.

    This was AFTER the rally.

    When a woman was killed by a Nazi.

    Before then, they went down to protest the confederate statue removal. Northerners concerned about "Southern Heritage." Yeah right.

    The freakin' logo is on top of a confederate flag. What does that tell you?

    & look at all the other stuff. Anti-Muslim protests. Claims about Shariah Law!

    Ridiculous!

    Not to mention shooting up a Mosque or attempts to bomb federal buildings.

    The fact that people are defending this tripe shows how far gone you are.

    They are a collection of militias! The Pennsylvania Lightfoot Militia was at the Anti-Muslim rally. The leader is on record as making racist comments.

    3 percent is a loose collection of these militias. That's who they are. These articles are giving the names of the actual militias.

    They showed up in Charlottesville to protest the taking down of a confederate statue. They showed up in Harrisburg because they hate Muslims.

    So, after the fact, when a white supremacist actually killed a person, they put out a statement disowning the white nationalists at the rally. Yeah, good PR.

    Now tell me why New Yorkers and Pennsylvanians are so upset by the removal of a confederate statue. & what it stands for.

    You didn't look up the word monolith, did you? Just admit the fact that your ignorance is forcing you to fit square bigoted peg into a want to be victimized round hole. Your ideology has turned you into a bigot, but without knowing your age or health status, I assume you have time to turn it around. You could start by telling this guy to be proud of his tattoo, acknowledge there is nothing controversial on the 3% website and join your Washington leftist brothers and sisters in accepting the political differences you may have with a right wing group.

    By the way, we're nearing 31 pages and you still haven't provided a bigoted thing this kid has done or a controversial thing from the group's site.

    If they’re in the media or banking or sports management then sure, we’ll replace the **** out of them. We’re not so keen on manual labor or being slaves anymore, though.

    Can’t believe we have 600 comments on drafting a kicker.

    Since we are discussing the Constitution. They should change the 1st Amendment “Separation of State” to mean Politics cannot be discussed when the topic is Sports relelated

    Sports and politics have always been intertwined only people who tend to be on the unfavorably side have an issue discussing it

    Now you're just lying. Their logo is a 3% on top of the american flag not Confederate. Just cause 1 guy made a custom patch does not make that their entire group ???

    Wrong.
    I don't have a side on this issue. Could care less.
    I keep Politics and Religion from all my Sports talk. I enjoy Sports. Hate Politics

    The absolute idiocy of your post is astounding.

    You're the one taking this beyond the kid.

    The kid said he's ashamed. You see me bashing the kid? No.

    Ask the kid what he's ashamed of. He knows.

    Now, as for the idea that a front website tells you everything about a group, that's so silly I can't believe you're hanging onto it.

    Look at their actions. They speak volumes. From Anti-Muslim protests to protesting the removal of Confederate statues (especially ridiculous as the groups who traveled are from New York and Pennsylvania.

    There is no entire group.

    It's a bunch of loosely affiliated militias. Several of them protested the removal of a Confederate statue. They were wearing the logo over half the confederate flag. These were the groups from New York and Pennsylvania.

    There is no national III%. The militias who identify as IIIers hold views in common. The fact they organize anti-Muslim rallies and rail against removal of confederate flags and statues tells me everything I need to know.

    Ok I don't know anything about them

    Just to play devil's advocate though. Republicans are also a wide group. If a couple people there did some bad things are you condemning the whole group? I can't see anything that the group is actually about hate. Seems like they are just very pro-gun.

    Now 31 pages in and you haven't been able to reference a single thing. You are simply bigot with an ideology to which you're blindly (and stupidly) loyal. You're a dime a dozen.
