    While the show does not directly define what a Nazi is or who gets to decide who a Nazi is, it does send a powerful message about what to do to people that have the label applied to them. Even as a free speech absolutist, this type of rhetoric seems to border on incitement to violence (which is illegal).

    I will fall on the side of free speech on this one but this is about as filthy and disgusting as speech can get. Divisive and hateful, it will do nothing but divide this country more.

    Interesting spin since Spencer is a lifelong far left - admitted socialist - donk.

    Cold cocking someone is a black thing and also a George Soros brown shirts stormtrooper thing and also an Antifa tactic.

    But I was unaware that Richard Spencer was a Nationalist Socialist (Nazi)

    If you support punching Nazis over speech, you should be subject to the same treatment.

    Priceless!

    First Trumped-up Republicans had to praise Putin. Now they quickly defend Nazi's because their klan members are afraid of a TV show. What happened to all those brave patriots? Or is it like being phony Christians, too.

    Right away Fox News is in a snit that an American TV program [fictional] is subtly encouraging hitting a Nazi in the nose. Republicans in the Trump regime have to defend even enemies of our country. Your comrades?

    I do not think CBS or our President should be inciting violence, think Trump even promised to pay their legal fees

    If they're not far left enough and getting with the program, they're Nazis.

    These people eat their own.

    "A house divided", as they say.

    really, wasn't the guy white at the Trump rally that sucker punched a black guy?

    I think they call people who post the kind of stuff you post a demagogue. We used to dislike them, and found them dangerous. I think the brighter people still do.

    Nazism is a belief system just as Islam is a belief system. Nazis stopped murdering and oppressing people decades ago, Islam on the other hand.....

    Are people here seriously defending Nazis?

    Aside from the fact that it's Nazi references on a TV Show?

    Nonsensical word salad.

    It's not ok to punch nazis for speech. It's not a good idea to mainstream the idea either. There's a problem with conflating conservatives of various kinds with actual NATSOC people, because people who're not remotely nazis end up being assaulted.

    What part of the 1st Amendment is foreign to you? And who is defending Nazis? I see free speech being defended but nothing else.

    People are defending free speech, but be hyperbolic if you wish.

    Today's Republican doesn't know what he/ she stands for. McCain made it clear and wouldn't even let the yellow-hair traitor into the cathedral at his funeral. How low will they go? Just ask a Trumped Republican after each morning tweet by their dear leader who is in love with Kim Jong Un. :roll:

    we all agree Richard Spencer is a total scumbag...as are Nazis and White Supremacists.

    Right?

    Goodbye then... unless you'd like to explain why it's ok to assault people for speech you don't like.
