OPINION

When is it OK to punch a Nazi in the throat?

By Philip Martin

This article was published August 20, 2017 at 1:51 a.m.

Dear Good People, I believe you when you say you are good people who do not condone violence or racial hatred. I believe you when you say you detest white nationalism and, as Tom Cotton put it, the "contemptible little men" who carry torches for trampled Reichs and Lost Causes.

I simply have nothing to add that would improve this essay. Once again, Mr. Martin, bravo!

Reminds me of the thesis that Neanderthals thrived for about 200,000 years until Homo Sapiens, who apparently had vastly superior, weaponized, communication ability, wiped them out. The speculation is that Neanderthals were peaceful precisely because they didn't say much. Philip and I have roots in southeast Georgia--Bulloch and Bryan counties. Without knowing him, I assume he is, as I am, a recovering white supremacist. My family, friends, community and school simply went along with segregation, which is a pure expression of white supremacy. We were Christians, but the pressure to go along and get along was greater than the teaching and example of Jesus Christ.

Phil, do you mean to say Neo-Nazis(m) when you say Nazis? Even though I doubt any of those marchers would claim to be Nazis since Nazism was more associated with 20th century German Nazi Party, Nazi Germany and other far right groups. And still the right to swing your arm leaves off where my right not to have my larynx struck begins. Here is where civil government comes in to prevent bloodshed, adjust rights, and settle disputes. I'm not defending those knuckleheads you call Nazis, but what if they had a rally and no one (BLM, antifa) showed up?

Phil, Phil, Phil, ... The Nazis were socialist and fascist as is the Democratic Party.

Somebody needs to start a website to match these neo-Nazi losers with single girls. All most of them need to get past their alienation is a girlfriend. Much violence would have been prevented if, say, Tim McVeigh and Dylann Roof had only had girlfriends. Surely, there are some women out there willing to take one for the greater good. Maybe we could let women innmates out of prison early if they agree to marry a neo-Nazi.

Hahahahaha, DSF, I almost spewed my good bourbon! "...willing to take one for the greater good." Blahahaha! Thanks for the laugh.

The antifa seek peace through violence. Peace through violence. I guess that's when it's ok to punch another human being in the throat, when it's in the name of peace. 1984 people. 1984. You good with that Philip?

I love that Queenie is flailing (and failing) in such a visible manner.

Pack, the neo-Nazis and white nationalists seek peace through violence. Don't believe me? Read a few of their blogs, including Chris Cantwell. Read the infamous David Duke. I'm not making this stuff up. They take care of the evidence for me.
