Can I Punch This Nazi?


I did try to punch him. And he was a Nazi. I moved on him like a bitch, but I couldn't get there. And he was a Nazi. Then all of a sudden I see him, and now he's got big shinny jackboots and everything. He's changed his whole look. And I've got to get some brass knuckles in case I start punching him. You know, I'm automatically attracted to punching Nazis. It's like a magnate. I just punch. I don't even wait. And when you're a Godwhacker they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything. ~ GW


 This my favorite question of the week. When is punching Nazis OK?
Even The New York Times is asking "Is it O.K. to punch a Nazi?" So to get to the bottom of this complex and nuanced moral question, we let two half-Jews -- Katie Goldin and Aaron Kheifets -- duke it out in a public forum to decide once and for all whether or not it's OK to punch a Nazi.
Katie: I just want to begin by going on the record that I don't like Nazis. In fact, I'm against Nazis and all they stand for. I like that about me.
Aaron: And I'd like to get out of the way that I don't condone violence to achieve political ends. I'm a really, really good guy who believes in following the rules and telling people what a good guy he is.
K: But at the same time ...
A: Yes, at the same time ...
K: You want to punch Nazis in the face, and I don't.
A: Look, there are basically only two unquestionably good wars: When we killed people because they wanted to own slaves, and when we killed people because they wanted to holocaust everybody. If we look at history (or, for me, recall movies that are loosely based in history), we see that doing violence against Nazis specifically is an unquestionably a good thing. Are you suggesting we should be less like Indiana Jones?
The only reason to be against punching Nazis is if you're worried that it will erode our democracy and freedom of speech. You're thinking "First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out -- Because I was not a socialist." But what you're forgetting is that the "they" in that poem are the fucking Nazis! There's no need for a slippery slope. You can punch slave owners and you can punch Nazis. They get special dispensation to be punched. Like how Native Americans are allowed to run casinos. There's a history to keep in mind.
K: I'm actually not that concerned about the Nazi's free speech. As far as I'm concerned, we'd be better off if Nazis were never listened to again and Pepe the Frog got flattened like a tube of toothpaste under an 18-wheeler. But that's not what's happening.

Poor Richard Spencer, he did Nazi this coming!



This is the part where someone (you troll?) usually chimes in on how we cannot fight hate with hate. Fuck that gaslighting bullshit. Intolerance of intolerance is not intolerant. Comparing resistance to hate and violence with self-initiated hate and violence is nothing but a shallow attempt to equate the victims with the oppressors.



Nazis be afraid. Be very afraid.

  1. The guy was exercising his right to free speech, which is a right that people should deeply respect, no matter how odious the content of his or her words. It is no defense to a criminal battery charge that the speaker's ideas are odious. The guy who belted the speaker deserves to get arrested for battery. There are many lawful ways to combat what he was saying or what he believes, but none of them includes the Government's barring him from speaking in a public place in which non-odious speechifying is permitted, or taking him out with a right cross. If fair-minded people, including those who detest Nazis, do not understand this fundamental principle, then the Nazis and others who would restrict unpopular speech win.

    1. Exactly! That's not my fist in a brass knuckle, it's a loving feather duster!

  3. Maybe the question should be whether you can grab a Nazi by the pussy.

  4. You say that, but what happens when somebody starts saying that it's okay to punch gays?

    Oh wait, they did say that, and every civilized person with half a brain stood up to say it is wrong. Now, you cheer this because the guy is a deplorable neo-Nazi asshole? Good that you get to decide when it is okay to sucker punch somebody.

    How about just your run of the mill guy who doesn't like gay people? Should we punch him? What about the girl who hates Lesbians? Let's get her. Or, the idiot who is a real threat to us all who denies climate change is man made and wants to up carbon emission - sock it to him.

    When you, douchebag GW, start to decide who gets punched because you don't like what they are saying, we are all fucked.

    You are the biggest hypocrite.

    Go smoke some weed and kid yourself about how good it is for you.

    xo,

    1. You don't think people have tried to punch me already? I have the scars and I'm still here.

      You clueless little troll, you're not going to get away with that "you're intolerant of my intolerance" crap here ~ looser.

      You know I'll delete your sad remarks and re-post in your name with Britney Spears interviews.

    2. And basically what you just did there was equate being gay with being a Nazi.

      Get off your intellectual high horse right now and admit that you're a fucking idiot. Or I'll do it for you.

    1. Of course I'm joking. Why would I punch someone when I can just call down lightning?

  6. I would never intentionally touch a stranger without their permission. Isn't that pretty much a rough definition of battery?
