I saw him on the news. He says not to hate the white nationalist himself whether he be 16 or 60, because (like young members of ISIS may I add) they are often driven to a sense of belonging, not because they are naturally evil. They are lonely, desperate people who often go from radical ideology to radical ideology and end up becoming white nationalists in the hopes of belonging to something greater. He (or was it someone else) said, "when someone approached me not with counterhate, but with love and understanding, i really started to open up" and "dont hate the monster, hate what's driving the monster" and "no one is born to hate" (fitrah) EDIT: he also added that hate only made his hate worse
