    This sounds like a survey designed to provide the results the authors wanted.

    I've never (knowingly) encountered white nationalists while serving in the military, but where I live I run into intolerant, hate-filled people all the time. These folks have "love thy neighbor" and "Hate has no home here" signs in their yards, yet walk around in public wearing "resist" buttons.

    Is this the 'real' FLAPS?

    Like you, I had never crossed paths in uniform with anyone who by their actions and words I would have thought were a white / black nationalist or separatists etc. However, after two stints as an SSO and an XO, I was surprised how many people belongs to groups with pretty radical views.

    True. During my time in, i saw quite a few folk, who had those 'no hate' signs, but bashed anyone conservative. Got out way before the current crop of 'resist' folk though.

    I was actually referring to my civilian neighbors within my heavily liberal community, not other military people I knew before I retired. When I see those "love" signs, I'm guessing it doesn't apply to anyone wearing MAGA hats!

    Ha! This thread is freaking hilarious! Anti-Semetic hate crimes up by 57% since Trump's election; hate crimes against minorities steadily increasing since MAGA; Nazi rallies; MAGA hats marching in the streets of Charlottesville chanting "Hail Trump" and "Jews will not replace us!" before they murdered and injured the "Stop the hate" crowd protesters; peaceful protesters getting the sh!t beat out of them at PRESIDENTIAL GATHERINGS for holding "Stop the Hate" signs; the president instigating and calling for the "roughing up" and beating of peaceful protestors at rallies; right wing extremist terrorist acts accounting for more than 70% of terrorist acts in the country; MAGA hat wearers shooting up black churches and mailing bombs to people Trump doesn't like....

    But yeah, boo freaking hoo...The "love" and "Stop the Hate" sign holders aren't nice enough to conservatives. This entire forum has become nothing but a Fox News outlet. Christ...
