Man makes last-ditch effort to recover $280 million in bitcoin he accidentally threw out. James Howells, 35, said he mistakenly put a hard drive with 7,500 bitcoins in the trash while clearing out his home in 2013. At today's prices, that haul would be worth more than $280 million.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being "in the crowd in Washington"

There's nothing wrong with posting on JT and being indifferent about the far right, nazis, bigots, conspiraloons and holocaust deniers, either.

I'd rather have such deplorables in sight, so we can all keep an eye on them. But, if they get deplatformed or exposed for funding terrorists, that's also fine with me.

So?

So, as I pointed out in reply to someone else, he's more than just far right. Holocaust denial is an extremist view. And his views on LGBT rights and immigrants aren't very uplifiting, either.

Fuentes and his dead donor are trash and trash needs cleaning up.

He's also a holocaust denier.

So?

Holocaust deniers are among the most crackpot and sinister of the conspiracy theorists. Faked moon landings and flat Earth are good fun to a point, but Holocaust denial does take you into very dark territory. There are pathological conspiracy theorists who have lost the ability to think straight and Holocaust denial is just another one on the crackpot list. These people are notoriously easily led and unimaginative. People with this very damaged outlook may not be in the neo-Nazi camp themselves, but they are entering very dark territory.

I hold out hope for neuroscience in this area.

Nick Fuentes and the other groups involved are not “far right.” Biased reporting.

He's a white supremacist who marched in Charlottesville. He's also a holocaust denier.

So, technically he's a far right extremist.

Oh this should be a fun investigation.

The global alt right movement have big bucks backing them. Their ongoing attempts to further undermine democracies and replace them with ultra-nationalistic authoritarian regimes harks back to movements of the 1930s. The far right extremists have a worldwide media network pushing their messages.

Not if a listed terrorist group

It's his money and his right to send it to whomever he likes.
