If you took all the white supremacists in the US they couldn't fill up a basketball arena.

ISIL fighters enter the city of Raqqa in Syria

In June 2014, ISIL had at least 4,000 fighters in Iraq.[56] The CIA estimated in September 2014 that it had 20,000–31,500 fighters in Iraq and Syria.[57] The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that the force numbers around 80,000–100,000 total (up to 50,000 in Syria and 30,000 in Iraq).[58][59] Reuters quoted "jihadist ideologues" as claiming that ISIL has 40,000 fighters and 60,000 supporters,[18] while an Iraqi Kurdish leader estimated in November 2014 that ISIL's military had 200,000 fighters.[16] 85–600 Iraqi Kurds may have joined ISIL.[60]

Some Syrian rebel factions have defected to ISIL, including the 1,000-strong Dawud Brigade in July 2014.[61] In addition to jihadists and other volunteers, ISIL is known for forcing other rebel groups to fight for it, as well as conscripting individuals.
Foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria
See also: Foreign fighters in the Syrian and Iraqi Civil Wars

There are many foreign fighters in ISIL's ranks. In June 2014, The Economist reported that "ISIS may have up to 6,000 fighters in Iraq and 3,000–5,000 in Syria, including perhaps 3,000 foreigners; nearly a thousand are reported to hail from Chechnya and perhaps 500 or so more from France, Britain and elsewhere in Europe."[62] Chechen leader Abu Omar al-Shishani, for example, was made commander of the northern sector of ISIL in Syria in 2013.[63][64] According to The New York Times, in September 2014 there were more than 2,000 Europeans and 100 Americans among ISIL's foreign fighters.[65] As of mid-September 2014, around 1,000 Turks had joined ISIL,[66] and as of October 2014, 2,400–3,000 Tunisians had joined the group.[67] An ISIL deserter alleged that foreign recruits were treated with less respect than Arabic-speaking Muslims by ISIL commanders and were placed in suicide units if they lacked otherwise useful skills.[68] According to a UN report, an estimated 15,000 fighters from nearly 70 countries have travelled to Iraq and Syria to join militant groups, including ISIL.[69]

Reuters has stated that according to jihadist ideologues, 10 percent of ISIL's fighters in Iraq and 70 percent of its fighters in Syria are from outside those countries.[18]
As of September 29, 2015, the CIA estimated that 30,000 foreign fighters had come to join ISIL.[70] As of October 2015, 21% came from Europe, 50% from Western Asia or North Africa, and 29% from elsewhere; according to the Global Terrorism Index and other sources, they were of the following nationalities:[71]

Well Carlson said, "American College Football stadium", which doesn't change my point at al. That can mean up to 100 000 people, there are multiple examples.

But it is not about numbers as much as it is about the vile position advocated and the determination and capabilities of the group.

What Carlson said is that a bunch of extreme racists with free access to firearms is a hoax, because there's only up to a 100 000 of them in America, clearly specious.

Now you want to make it about the size of various American stadia, which is even more specious. Unless you think a bunch of armed, organized and extreme racists is a hoax too?

There are estimated to be around 13,000 White supremacists of all "colors"in the US. That would be a basketball arena size. Carlson was mistaken.
But it is not about numbers as much as it is about the vile position advocated and the determination and capabilities of the group.

There are nothing like that number of them in the US.
Now you want to make it about the size of various American stadia, which is even more specious. Unless you think a bunch of armed, organized and extreme racists is a hoax too?

Look this is not a discussion of the size of "America stadia" This is a discussion of how relevant white supremacy is in the US. But if you really want to get into it ours a certainly bigger than yours. And size does matter.

Here is a list of White supremacist groups in the US. Pretty much any of them reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center are suspect in belonging to this heading as the SPLC is under investigation for promoting "racism for dollars" So this list has a lot of BS in it.

Thiessen: The Southern Poverty Law Center has lost all credibility
After years of smearing good people with false charges of bigotry, the Southern Poverty Law Center has finally been held to account


WASHINGTON — After years of smearing good people with false charges of bigotry, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has finally been held to account. A former Islamic radical named Maajid Nawaz sued the center for including him in its bogus “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists,” and this week the SPLC agreed to pay him a $3.375 million settlement and issued a public apology.

The SPLC is a once-storied organization that did important work filing civil rights lawsuits against the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s. But it has become a caricature of itself, labeling virtually anyone who does not fall in line with its left-wing ideology an “extremist” or “hate group.”

Nawaz is a case in point. Since abandoning Islamic radicalism, he has advised three British prime ministers and created the Quilliam Foundation, to fight extremism. He is not anti-Muslim. He is a Muslim and has argued that “Islam is a religion of peace.”

So how did he end up in the SPLC’s pseudo-guide to anti-Muslim bigots? His crime, apparently, is that he has become a leading critic of the radical Islamist ideology he once embraced. Thanks to his courage, the SPLC has been forced to pay a multimillion-dollar penalty and acknowledge in a statement that it was “wrong” and that Nawaz has “made valuable and important contributions to public discourse, including by promoting pluralism and condemning both anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamist extremism.”

Let’s hope this settlement is the first of many, because this is not the first time the SPLC has done this. In 2010, it placed the Family Research Council (FRC) — a conservative Christian advocacy group that opposes abortion and same-sex marriage — on its “hate map.” Two years later, a gunman walked into the FRC headquarters with the intention to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces.” He told the FBI that he had used the SPLC website to pick his target.

Unfortunately, many in the media still take the SPLC seriously. Last year, ABC News ran a story headlined: “Jeff Sessions addresses ‘anti-LGBT hate group,’ ” in which it reported that “Sessions addressed members of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which was designated an ‘anti-LGBT hate group’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2016.” The Alliance Defending Freedom is a respected organization of conservative lawyers dedicated to defending religious liberty, and it just argued a case before the Supreme Court, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. It won, 7 to 2. It is not a “hate group.” If anything, it is fighting anti-Christian hate.

In 2014, the SPLC placed Ben Carson — later a Republican presidential candidate and now the current secretary of housing and urban development — on its “extremist watch list,” alongside neo-Nazis and white supremacists. After an uproar, the group removed him and apologized.

The SPLC also lists Charles Murray, a colleague of mine at the American Enterprise Institute and one of the most respected conservative intellectuals in the United States, on its website as a “White Nationalist.” Last year, an angry mob of students, many citing the SPLC’s designation, physically attacked Murray during a speech at Middlebury College.

He escaped unharmed, but the liberal professor who invited him ended up in the hospital.

Little wonder that Nawaz was not just angry but also afraid about being designated an extremist by the SPLC. He told the Atlantic in 2016, “They put a target on my head. The kind of work that I do, if you tell the wrong kind of Muslims that I’m an extremist, then that means I’m a target.”

Unfortunately, the settlement that the SPLC reached with Nawaz is not likely to deter it from smearing others — $3.4 million is a drop in the bucket for the center, which raised $132 million between November 2016 and October 2017 and has a $477 million endowment, including a reported $92 million in offshore accounts. Sliming conservatives is big business.

The only way to stop the SPLC is if people stop giving it money and the media stop quoting it or taking it seriously. The SPLC once did important work fighting the Ku Klux Klan. But when it declares Maajid Nawaz, the Family Research Council, Ben Carson and Charles Murray as moral equivalents of the Klan, it loses all integrity and credibility.[/q]

CONCLUSION: There are big $$$ in "Anti-racism"

Patchogue Fliers Read 'Death Camps For Trump Supporters'
Fliers hung on street posts and parking meters in Patchogue read "Death Camps For Trump Supporters Now!"
So what? You Americans sort of have a global reputation for frequently doing outrageous things in the promotion of pet causes.

It is a well known principle in commercial advertising that if you want to get the product you are trying to promote into peoples' minds, do not calmly appeal to reason but concoct a commercial sufficiently inane or otherwise outrageous that people will remember it.

It seems to me that that attention-riveting principle in commercial advertising has seeped its way into everything in your country and culture - not least into political discourse.
