deplatforming Nazis works. like there's actual scientific shit to back this up. ban them. make it public knowledge that they are a nazi or a nazi sympathizer. encourage others to ban their presence. don't let them have a voice. it works because most of these people are cowards and the minute you slap them with hard consequences, they run back under their rock where they belong.
