Well, let me rephrase that a bit. I don’t personally condone punching Nazis. But if someone wants to? I’m not going to condemn it either. Nazis lost all rights to whine about being punched when they marched millions of Jews and other “untermenschen” into the gas chambers.
What’s prompting this is Milo Yiannopoulos getting run out of Berkeley. If you don’t know him, he’s the self-hating gay Jew who claims that gays need to go back in the closet, liberals need to just shut up, and the U.S. ought to close its borders to anybody who isn’t white. He chose Berkeley to kick off his “Make America White Again” tour, condemning “sanctuary cities”, extolling Donald Trump (who he calls “Daddy” — for real, no, I’m not joking!), and saying that Trump ought to expel all Muslims, inbetween condemning gays and liberals as being the cause of “moral depravity” (like him, I guess). The protesters shut him down and ran him outta town.
Now, if we were like any other nation and had hate speech laws, that kinda shit would get him hauled in front of a judge and jury. But we can’t have that here, ’cause if we had that kinda law, we’d be like that awful nation Canada with its horrific socialist medicine and Stalinist death camps for neo-Nazis and so forth. Have you been to Canada recently? Its people are starving and living in crumbing gray concrete tenements and begging to escape to the United States over the great wall that their dictatorship has built between them and the country to the South! And all because of their laws against hate speech. That’s where the slippery slope of policing hate speech leads you — violent nasty-looking dictators like Justin Trudeau who nobody could ever like!
Cue the George Takei:
So, anyhow, I don’t exactly condone what happened, but I certainly can’t condemn it either. If a self-hating gay Jewish person wants to denigrate gays and Jews, I’m not personally upset about that and not going to personally make a fuss about that, but if gays and Jews decide to bring it on? Girl, I ain’t gonna raise a finger. As for the precious snowflake who said “Violence isn’t the answer. You’re not helping. You’re playing into Trump’s narrative.”: If Trump’s narrative is “punching Nazis is bad”, I gotta say that Trump ain’t exactly got a winning narrative there. Just sayin’.
