So...

No to punching Nazis who are like, just eating dinner or using the urinal or something.

More acceptable to punch Nazis when they are speechifying Nazi things. Even more so if they are speechifying Nazi-ly on camera.

Also, I would say not ok to punch Nazi children, even if they are goosestepping around the playground.

This is freaking me out. I googered to see what others were speculating about regarding the sincerity of the alleged punch. I happened upon what appears to be a sports oriented forum of some sort from one of the Carolinian states. It completely defied my prejudice by having a definite Punch A Nazi In The Face bent to the postages.

It's not dragging a one-percenter from his home and machete-butchering him in the street, but head-punching a sniveling Nazi bitch is a step in the right direction.

The real question is, how long after you punch a Nazi do you deny the event ever happened and that the nazi is just trying to get sympathy?

Default Re: Is it OK to punch a Nazi in the head?

The more I think about this issue, the more I have to come down on the side of “it is impossible for there to be such a thing as a preemptive attack against a Nazi.” Nazis carried out a campaign of systematic extermination that claimed eleven million lives mainly on the bases of such uncontrollable factors as ethnicity, disabilities, sexual orientation, and so on. By identifying as a Nazi, a person is claiming this heritage for themselves. In other words, they’re claiming all this violence for themselves.

An attack on a Nazi is an act of self-defence. And it is effective. Street violence was deployed in the United Kingdom to prevent Oswald Mosley and his blackshirts from taking part in the political process (in particular, physically denying him access to specific areas). This was a major factor in preventing fascism from taking root in Britain. Similarly, Spencer is now a laughing stock and is apparently in hiding. This, to me, is a net good. Nazis should live in fear; they should be afraid to show themselves in polite society. One outcome of the ACLU-Skokie thing that is seldom remembered is that, after obtaining the permit for the march, the Nazis decided not to march in Skokie because they would have been putting themselves in personal danger by doing so. It’s difficult for me to think of a more ideal outcome than that.

That said, I think it would probably have been even better if someone had used the old “pie in the face” trick against Spencer, and I highly endorse doing this to Nazis in the future.

Fortunately, I've seen a pretty consistent pattern of the oversimplistic pacifism getting shut down pretty quickly, largely by people who have experience with Nazis and have a better idea of what works and what doesn't.

A word of caution to all prospective Nazi head punchers.

Please make sure that the Nazi in question is not wearing a helmet. Serious injury may result from the failure to observe this basic precaution.

Pookleblinky on Twitter: "That is how much work is necessary to stop nazis if you refuse to punch them while they can still be punched."

Whole thread describing the 20 year process of de-Nazification that took place post WW2 there, and how it gave less than zero shits about free speech, but that's the punchline.

Oh hey, guess who apparently got punched again yesterday?

(Can't figure out Twitter embedding on my phone and am too lazy to go to a computer, so a link is all you get. Sorry. But really, click it.)

Angakuk: sounds like a good argument for using boxing gloves. Or brass knuckles.

That looks like it's probably the same day. At least one of the stories about it said that he got punched twice, but they only had video of the one.

He's probably still hiding, but he will get punched again next time he shows up in public.

Two things that are at the top of the "Should I punch this person?" checklist:
1. If they are a Nazi, punch them.
2. If they disrespect Pepe the frog and sully his good name, punch them.

Ah, I should have concluded that. Now that you mention it, it does look like it's at the same event. I hope he will get punched again the next time he shows up in public, though. And if someone uses brass knuckles, well, I won't endorse that, but I won't lose any sleep over it, either.

I used to think Shia LaBeouf was a clown, but he's done a lot of things that have made me regain respect for him since then. This definitely belongs on that list.

There's also this:


I can't say the fact that he is apparently a cannibal bothers me much, as long as he sticks to killing and eating Nazis.

Spencer's home address, phone #, and the address of the motel he was recently hiding out at have been floating around my fb newsfeed if anyone wants me to fetch it for them. Some1 suggested sending him envelopes full of glitter.
