I support his face punching, and here’s why.

This vile man felt emboldened by the change of politics enough to publicly speak about his racist beliefs on camera. This wasn’t a closed door meeting. He was filmed at a closed door meeting and nothing happened to him. So he thought, fuck it, people support me. Side of the road. Live tv. He thought the social power was on his side enough to just speak his hate. And on live tv some hero stood up and proved that wasn’t true and effectively shut him down.

But not only did that hero shut down Spencer he visually took that man’s power away from him in front of his audience. It was a teaching moment that said, this rhetoric will not be tolerated and will be dealt with in the fastest and most painful way possible. And it was a message not just for the alt-right white power bros, it was a message that any average Joe can walk up to someone spouting Nazi garbage and shut that shit down.
