Goes both ways, of course.

But if I hear less from white supremacists because they're scared of being punched, I'm happy.

In America, if both sides decide that violence is the most effective means of pushing forth their political agenda, what side would win?

What side have we called gun-toting, trigger happy lunatics for the last decade?

Rather odd question, especially since you answered it.

I think it's a leap to think that that's where we're heading.

Israel for example has adopted a policy of they will shoot protesters throwing rocks and rightfully so. A rock is a weapon and Israeli soldiers have been severely hurt and even killed from rocks being thrown by Palestinian protesters.

On top of throwing rocks, I believe people were beat unconscious during the "protest"

Throwing rocks at occupying forces is bad but terrorising civilians and arresting children is actually really good!

Fairly sure that guy was a neo-nazi.

Are you... defending the suggestion of another Kent State as a viable solution??

Oh the Israeli policy regarding protesters!

Great idea. It's such a utopia over there.

I think every country should adopt the 'put a 10 year old child in jail because they resist your occupation' policy to be honest. Truly a great democracy.

I'd like to see an example of a rock thrown by a 19 year old poli-sci major killing someone in full riot gear.

Not that I condone the rock throwing. It has no place, and if you throw a rock at a police officer you should be arrested and prosecuted.

But... yea; they shouldn't open fire on protesters hurling rocks.

Smoke? Flashbangs? Even rubber bullets? OK.

Live ammo? Are you nuts?

Why is that man likely to be a neo-Nazi?

This, I believe, is the slope in action. While it's somewhat possible to reasonably characterize Richard Spencer as a neo-Nazi (I think white nationalist is more accurate, but semantics), it's actually pretty difficult to make any reasonable argument that Milo Yiannopolous is a neo-Nazi. What's more, it's even *harder* to make the argument that every member of his audience is a neo-Nazi.

But hey, some guy got beat unconscious by leftist protesters, and they're by definition the good guys. Since they're the good guys, they can't have been mindlessly assaulting people...well, he had to have been a neo-Nazi, then. And if it's okay to punch a neo-Nazi, it's okay to beat them unconscious, too - I mean, what's the difference?

Everybody can be a Nazi in 2017. All you have have to do is say something a phrase, song, anything . . . And you too can be called a Nazi.
