A couple of weeks ago those teabagger people had their April 15 demos. They had been on their toes looking for infiltrators who would pose while carrying ridiculous signs so that the media would report on how crazy those teabaggers were. To be fair, there’s something to that fear because some blogger announced exactly that as a strategy, and he tried to organize people to that end.
But in this instance, what it looks like is that some honestly racist person decided to show up to protest big guvmint in a swastika shirt. So the Republican teabaggers decided he was a “crasher” and kind of sort of chased him out. So good for them, I guess.
I’m not so much interested in their paranoia or their willingness to believe he wasn’t really “one of them” with no evidence whatsoever. That’s kind of to be expected from those people. But what’s even funnier is how lame and weak their response to this guy was:
Oh no! He’s on NOTICE. Tsk, tsk…
I’m not a violent guy, and if I were in their shoes I’d probably try to talk to him for at least a minute before attacking, too. But sheesh… Talk about using kid gloves on an open fascist.
So that’s one case of how the right deals with Nazis. Basically they wag their fingers at them while calling them “Sir” and make sure the media sees them doing it. And then they let him stick around.
Three men wearing Nazi garb sparked a brawl with approximately 50 people outside a hardcore punk concert in Philadelphia.
Witnesses said the men were mocked inside the Khyber club Friday night for sporting tattoos of Nazi symbols and wearing camouflaged combat pants, WWII-style coats emblazoned with SS emblems and Third Reich hats with Nazi insignias…
“One Nazi was caught right in the middle of 2nd street as punches, kicks, bottles, boots and blows rained down upon his prone and turtled body. He could be heard crying for help all up and down the block,” the Examiner report read. “The other two were caught nearby and beaten severely.”…
The Examiner reported that the fracas inspired Murphy’s Law to write and play an impromptu song called, “You Should Have Known Better,” prompting an uproarious response from concert-goers.
Unfortunately I cannot find video of the beating. And you better believe I looked.
To be fair, a punk show isn’t exactly a political gathering – but it’s pretty close to one. On the other hand, nobody in Murphy’s Law starting ranting about how the Nazis were plants from some other band’s fanbase. I guess they were confident enough that things would kind of work themselves out, which it seems they did. LOLenfreude.
