NEVER feel bad for Nazis

punch-nazis4Listen, you don’t get to feel bad for Nazis.

Ever.

Especially so-called “Neo-Nazis”.

Stretching the idea of forgiveness to its breaking point, you can try to suggest that Germans and other European people who fell under Hitler’s spell were exploited, brainwashed, and used to commit some of the worst crimes against humanity ever perpetrated, many not knowing the  full scale of the Holocaust until the war was over.

Like I said. A stretch. Maybe the biggest stretch possible. Maybe not even possible.

Neo-Nazis, on the other hand, adopt this proven genocidal ideology knowing full well what that ideology wrought during World War II, eager to continue and grow the movement.

“Punching Nazis” is a thing, nothing new, but in Trump World it’s a more frequentlyoccurringthing.

And, opinion is split on whether or not punching Nazis is a good thing. Some say yesSome say noSome say, well, not yet.

As a lifelong pacifist, raised Jewish post-Holocaust, the question of whether or not violence is justified in order to fight a genocidal ideology has been the single most difficult question I’ve wrestled with in my lifetime.

But, if you ask me to look at the photos included here, of the Nazi punched yesterday at the University of Florida, and then ask me whether or not I feel bad for the Nazi…

…HELL NO!

That motherfucker decided to wear that t-shirt and attend that demonstration and if he can’t take a punch in the face then he should have never showed up.

The main argument against punching Nazis is that it’s violent suppression of free speech.

But, I ask you, why the hell do Nazi’s deserve free speech?! We’ve seen what they do with it!

As one of the signs held by an anti-facist protestor read:

You are not a difference of opinion.

You are hate.
