Not sure if you can view this album without logging in to Facebook but some of the interviews in here are worth watching.

Predictably many of the same people who filled with righteous indignation by the public punching of Nazi Richard Spencer are vehemently defending the Nazi who publicly sucker-punched a 90-pound woman.

I was reading many many comments about that last night. Yes, she said some things on public media about coming back with 100 Nazi scalps but assault is assault.

Shitty alt-right logic: She called me a name–I get to bash her face in.

Any chance those dumbasses want to hold their Ignorance Rally in Baltimore? Yeah, didn’t think so.

I kind of doubt that particular Nazi had been reading her social media feed. Even if he had that wouldn’t be a mitigating factor unless she’d actually attempted to scalp someone.

What’s crazy is that both groups have so much energy to spend attacking each other. What if they actually worked towards a common goal?

Oh, but they’re coming to shove free speech down your throat… :neutral_face:

Odd that I keep seeing Alt-Right wearing the Captain America shield yet:

And not just once…

Or stabbed and the last thing you hear is someone calling you a literal bleeding heart liberal.

Surely both groups can agree on something. Like, “violence committed by our side is funny and cool, and violence committed by their side is unjustified and reprehensible.”
