I always find it odd... I ONLY see partisan fear online. The SJW thing, I only see online. I only see extremist conservatives online.

My every day life is just normal people, some who like Trump, some don't care for Trump are voting against him. And we're all civil. No one cares about "communist/socialist" crap because our system of government is built to withstand any of that. It's far too complicated for a complete overhaul. Biden and the majority Dems aren't commies pushing socialism. They don't WANT that! Why else would they have sabotaged Sanders? Why else try to block progressives?

All I see is Mitch McConnell doing his best to sound like a congenial southerner. I don't think he's been one of us for a long time now. All I see is Nancy Pelosi stifling actual discussion and debate and compromise. Same with McConnell. They won't give up actual power until you pry it from their cold dead hands. They won't allow any uprisings. All they've done this summer is TRY to appeal to young voters... They spout campaign slogans and they want you to believe them. It's campaign season. Yet they (re: none of them) have any policy they're running on.

It'll end.

Actually, it'll end IF we get out of Afghanistan. Our SJW/Antifa/BLM shit is just a coked up version of the 60's hippies, and people will just stop caring. Considering the big thing about 60's hippies was our involvement in Vietnam, I think it's just a similar thing.
Afghanistan? The innocence. These movements will always find motives, if not in the present, then in the past.

"[all the minorites that i and my friends hate will eventually shut up again]".. cheer up mate, it might not happen, but you can always just learn to be a functioning adult in a diverse, multicultural world :)
Putting words in the other side's mouth is counter intuitive and only seeks to further divide us. It's incredibly easy to color your political opponents as evil by attributing the qualities of the worst of their side to the whole. For example. "How dare you take issue with our revolution. Don't you know opposing it makes you racist! We replaced 'the bourgeoisie' with 'white people', and 'the proletariat' with 'PoC'!"

Obviously that isn't your point of view, but by framing your side that way we end up arguing against the distorted views we have set up of each other instead of potentially working towards an understanding.

Now I understand not everyone is going to engage in a conversation in good faith, but OP hasn't said anything inflammatory. Why not attempt a good faith conversation first to try and convince him of your point of view.

They can't. Attempting a good faith conversation with us is against their doctrine. They say objective debate is designed to be white supremacist (which is obviously their way to escape getting shredded).

I know there are some that believe that stuff, but I refuse to attribute those beliefs on someone I know practically nothing about. Treating people as monoliths is just something I refuse to do. Its part of why I bounced off Critical Race Theory as soon as I heard it.

The BLM and ANTIFA stuff will probably die down at some point yes, but the "SJW" thing is not going anywhere. Society isn't going to regress back to being publicly offensive and inconsiderate again. That time has passed in my opinion.
It is impossible to not be offensive to someone publicly.
It's only which groups outrage you choose to ignore that changes.
