Punching Nazis Totally Works

I’m sure it does. The problem is two-fold:

  1. Not all nazis are as easy to spot as Spencer and your skinhead examples.
  2. Hysterical anti-nazis who start labeling anyone they disagree with as a “nazi”, true or not, can quickly turn into a fascist movement themselves.

The Italian journalist Ennio Flaiano was quoted as saying “In Italy, there are two types of fascists: the fascists, and the anti-fascists”.

And from what we’re seeing from “antifa”, this same problem is starting to appear here.

The solution to right-wing authoritarianism is not left-wing authoritarianism, people.
