Is Owen Benjamin a Neo-Nazi? His views heavily overlap with it. Homophobia, praise for Hitler, extreme anti-semitism, white supremacist, and so on. What's making him not a Neo-Nazi? --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 04:44, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
- I can't think of anything that wouldn't make him a Neo-Nazi, so I put him the Neo-Nazis category a couple hours ago. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 04:51, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Climate change denier
I'm not sure if he's a hardcore climate change denier. This Facebook post, which I think is from him, tells me he at least recognizes the thing? He does spew denier tropes in that post, but I noticed this sentence "When I interviewed [Bill Nye] I praised him for being a master communicator to explain to people global warming and its causes. To then see his show a year later assigning gender to ice cream and possibly installing a child limit in the U.S I lost my mind a bit. What a dark turn for such a bright and fun man to take. We have the answer to global warming." The post is from 2017, maybe his views changed? His recent video (bahfgh) did say it's a hoax, on the other hand, because the things predicted in An Inconvenient Truth didn't happen. Hope you take my word for it. That's all he said though, he just goes in a tangent how evolution doesn't predict anything and Darwin is only a dead racist now because Darwin thought Irish were below blacks and closer to other animals than to humans, and Darwin's family is a product of incest blah blah blah. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 05:25, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Categories "racists" and "anti-semites"
@Magic Master It is my view that these categories are unneeded and redundant, given that the category of alt-right (and by extension it's parent category of neo-nazi) has been applied. 15:07, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
- "It's". And IMO this whole categorization thing probably needs to be another look. If you look at other alt-right entries, you notice they have similar categorization such as Kiwi Farms getting the racist (actually "Racism") and neo-nazi tags, but not all of them. David Irving gets both Anti-Semitism and Neo Nazi tags. Steven Anderson also gets these tags. So, that's just a few selections I made, but I'm aware of the whole "redundant" category thing kinda being a recurring problem in RationalWiki as well as the irksome "racism" and "racist" categories being used interchangeably while we don't have "sexist" category but "sexism" category. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 18:16, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
