To Punch a Nazi Not a Huge Fan

    • News Commentary

Is it OK to punch Nazis? That's the subject of today's episode. TV writer Cameron Johnson (twitter.com/CameronJAwesome) joins the show once again. This time Charles and Isaac are on the same side: you can't punch anyone just because they're espousing beliefs with which you disagree. Cameron is on the opposite side: yes, you can! Is punching a Nazi actually a form of self defense, and does the fighting words doctrine apply here? Is this a form of political violence, and how does a liberal square that with their political philosophy? All this and more, including the Westboro Baptist Church, and whether Jews are always on the opposite side of Nazis. Music: www.bensound.com
