I don't think people realize why its important to remove white supremacists from your board/forum/web community.
- They are extremely motivated.
- They have a tradition of recruiting via meme(in the classic sense).
- They have centuries of effective propaganda.
- They will take over. Slowly at first then suddenly.
- They will always create more moderation work for you. They will never stop pushing.
Every society struggles with this. And it's not some conspiracy.
I ran a small community slack for a a niche community in my city. We got one dude who would not stop.
It starts simply enough, some off color remarks, profile pics with guns pointing at you, starting political arguments. Then it ramps up to more and more.
Every time we time we asked him to chill he would stop for a bit and then come back harder and in a new way. Ultimately I quit the slack shortly after banning him permanently because he harassed me outside of slack.

The Corporately Required Retail Smile is a perfect analogy for capitalism as a whole - being stripped of everything a human needs, and then being told that you can earn tiny amounts of it back by putting on a fake smile and pretending to even remotely be able to cope with this. It's sick, and it needs to stop.
(i don't recommend you try any of this, unless it's as part of an organized effort, tbc)
