No, it doesn’t sound like the same thing to me. But that’s a bit besides the point:
- Nobody in a society governed by the rule of law is suppose to be hitting anyone. Period. That’s why we have police and a legal system — to control that sort of uncivilized behavior. “Violence” is not a form a protest.
- If you truly believe the only effective way to combat neo-Nazis is through a vigilante force enforcing a set of “priorities” which are in conflict with the US Constitution, then your problem is not with the neoNazis; your problem is with the United States of America.
Hope that helps.
