  1. It has been said that the ends justify the means, but the means bring about the ends. If we want a non-violent outcome, we cannot accomplish it with violence.

    BTW, I am not nauseated by white supremacists. I take pity on them. They are socially challenged.

  2. Thank you for your clear thinking regarding Nazi punching. It’s been quite disturbing to me to hear or read progressives or leftists support punching Nazis as a legitimate protest or resistance action. I keep thinking “When did leftists start to support pre-emptive strikes?”!

  3. I don’t really know much about Spencer but I haven’t heard that he is in favor of the extermination of millions of people… not sure he’s a Nazi…? From what I’ve heard he is in favor of an all white country and all black countries… What are we to make of this? What does he actually claim about African Americans? This would determine whether he is actually a racist or not. We’re in a period where simply saying anything with certain words is immediately seen to be racist… and then from racist we often go immediately to Nazi. I’m also not so convinced that your characterization of the election is accurate. (Your admission that you enjoyed seeing Spencer punched is also telling. I think this is a problem. I’m also not sure why you had to think so much about where to come down on this issue.)

    I’m not really sure why there are so many words to explain something obvious.
