And to make matters worse, he gets reasonable about it.
"No serious damage. I can take a punch."
... that moment when a fucking Nazi wannabe is brighter than the entire Occupy movement was vis-a-vis violence.
I realize that the vast majority of the "yay! Punching Nazis!" yabbering going around is just that: shit talk.
But there's always some...
Look folks, violence is applied force. If you're going to apply force, at least be smart about it.
If you want violence to burn off your rage, tape a picture of someone you hate to a heavy bag and go to town on it.
If you want to use violence to change someone's behavior, you're not going to achieve that by throwing badly aimed punches and bouncing off like Daffy fucking Duck.
I've mentioned before how much I loathe the "one good punch and the bully never bullies again" trope. It's not only bullshit, but dangerous bullshit.
One of the memes going round talks about getting Nazis out of the punk scene in the 80's/90's is much more realistic. It describes a growing but small crowd that inevitably gets pushed back. And punched back. And not once, not twice, but repeatedly and consistently. Until it became a given that "showing up and doing Nazi shit" = "getting your ass kicked."
But even that only worked because everyone, including the Nazis, were willing to work within the same social framework.
That's not what's happening with the lightly bruised fuckwombat. His ass is gaining followers and money because he was standing on a street corner when someone in a mask sucker punched him. And then vanished, leaving him to continue spewing his vitriol, now with renewed purpose and willingness to escalate. After all, there's video proof of the risk to his safety whenever he speaks in public (with a growing list of fabulous remixes, I might add).
Don't make life easier for wannabe Nazis by joining a dance where you don't know the steps, people.
