This is an easy statement to toss out because it is always true. But if this is the only statement you can use to defend a group you represent, you really need to take a look at your group.
I understand that radicals are loud. But every group often has members the group refers to as leaders, even if they are simply revered members. And those "Leaders" not loudly condemning the actions of those "Loud Radicals" is silent agreement with them.
"We're not all like that" isn't even a statement you should make. If you disagree with the terrible practices of an alleged member of your community, you state outright, "Those hosers are wrong, I, and most of us, Don't consider them apart of our group, and I'm sorry you were exposed to that shit."
