I enjoyed watching Richard Spencer get Nazi-punched. I’ve watched the video multiple times. Everyone enjoys watching a villain get what’s coming. But for the life of me, I can’t advocate it as a solution or a favorable tactic. Here’s why.
I’ll have CNN on in my office all day today. It will feel like torture. It will feel like a funeral. It will feel like watching a severely unqualified con man get rewarded for capitalizing on people’s fear, bigotry, gullibility, and ignorance of the issues. It will feel like confirmation that people in this country would rather hear comforting lies than seek the truth.
It should be no surprise that someone like Paula White would be invited to speak at the inauguration of a fellow scam-master.
