Things could actually get pretty ugly, pretty quick'.



But no: you go all Bill and Ted and think it's epic and awesome to see a child threatened. Not even a nazi child, which might be arguable. A kid being credibly threatened by an unhinged adult is epic and awesome.



If you can't see how screwed up it is for you to be cheering this, there's really nothing more to say.
The kid was not throwing anything.

Yet the Nazi threatening millions of their fellow citizens is just hunourous.

I can think of just one example:

Quote:
Massaquoi was one of the few blacks that lived in Nazi Germany. Unsurprisingly given the Nazis' intolerance of minorities, he experienced rejection from the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth Movement) as well as the local playground after learning they were not open to 'non-Aryans'.
Story of Growing Up Black in Nazi Germany Comes to TV (DW, Sep. 30, 2006)

The other so-called wannabe Nazis are actual ones.

I'm guessing they have but the police wouldn't do anything as the scum is not doing anything unlawful.

Only throwing things at heads dude (??? '... at dude's head'???? dann) is

You still get it completely wrong, and I don't see why it's so difficult. Let me show you how it's done and FTFY:

This seems to solve the problem, Darat: You should always ask a Nazi to show some ID before you egg him!

Yes, it does. Otherwise, you wouldn't consistently rephrase the title of this thread, Another Nazi egged, into:
Random law-breaker throws things at law-abiding person's head.

OK

That was probably a bit specific

Not just a racist idiot standing on a street who obviously has no mates

Well no it doesn't

The difference between your view and mine is I see one idiot throwing an egg at another idiot's scums head who is standing on a street waving a flag

You see (forgive me if I am wrong) a hero fighting for some sort of cause against some modern day version of a Nazi underground force

You're improving, but you're not quite there yet. I'll give you points for getting egg right this time, though. However (and forgive me for ignoring your "I see" and correcting it as if you hadn't made it clear that you are stressing your own bias):

... as the title of the OP said so succinctly. It's so easy once you've learned the principle.

Nope

Still doesn't change my post

I hate to break it to you but even if you believe this piece of crap waving a flag is a real Nazi who will actually do something about it.

Guess what

It is still a person standing on a street who has the same rights not to have things thrown at his head.

Please point out where he isn't as your beginning to get boring

Actually let's go the whole hog

He is a bona fide Nazi killer and in his head he is moments away from killing someone

Please explain how it is lawful to throw something at his head for waving a flag

I just think there is a difference between actual violent hate groups and idiots fixated with stuff, standing on street corners.

Man! Now you're not only back at throwing "something", but you've also invented a new reason for egging the Nazi: "for waving a flag". Where did you get that idea?!
And why do you want somebody (me?) to "explain how it is lawful"???
I've never claimed that it's "lawful", and I've never cared.

I think the bit we are missing here is neither do I.

All I was saying is it is an act of violence because people were claiming it wasn't because he is a Nazi

You might want to relook at my post saying I don't care if he got hit by a vehicle, trod on by a horse and smashed into by the AB forward pack

Do you have a link to somebody claiming that it isn't an act of violence because he's a Nazi? I remember people claiming that egging somebody isn't an act of violence, and I've said that I would consider it an act of soiling rather than of violence: In the video I see somebody egging a Nazi from behind. (I don't know if it's because the egg guy is being considerate and wants to avoid any eggshell-eyeball contact.)

You know, Baylor probably has a copy of the license to rape that the UK police issued to the Muslim gangs. They allow Bond to kill, so it can't be difficult for them to allow Muslim gangs to rape.

I can only interpret your current argument a few different ways:

1. You got carried away cheering on your team, such as it is, and are still mindlessly trying to score points
2. You know you made a mistake, but won't admit it
3. You genuinely are the most precious of princesses and genuinely do not understand that things can go very bad and it's not a flipping movie where people waltz away unscathed when starting street confrontations
This is your problem right here. You think that politics is the same as rooting for your favorite sportsball team, or arguing over what TV show is better.

Amazing stuff.

Well you are still claiming it isn't an act of violence in this post so it is a bit irrelevant.

I tell you what


Do you have kids.

I have a couple of nephews

Lets meet up and throw eggs at their heads and ask my BiL whether he thinks it's an act of violence

Are your nephews advocating genocide? Do they wish for a racially pure ethno-state?

If they do, your BiL has clearly failed as a parent, and who cares how angry he gets when they are egged.

Probably not, but after the egging I would probably advocate dry cleaning!

You have no point.

You are literally trying to defend nazism.

Oh, so it's a question of comprehension! You actually think that I say that it isn't an act of violence to egg a Nazi because he's a Nazi. OK, that made it clear for me.

Again, you are literally trying to defend nazis. Not a good look, is it?

That theory only works if you haven't read my posts

THE GUY WITH THE FLAG IS RACIST SCUM WHO I WOULDN'T CARE IF HE DIED HORRIBLY.

This doesn't change the fact throwing something at some ones head is an act of violence

I posed questions to you and you passed. I'm not complaining about that, but it was an opportunity for you to directly engage with me if you're interested in my perspective on things.

I grew up in the SF bay area but I've lived in WA state for the past few decades. Neo nazi activity isn't abstract in this part of the country.

Just because nazis are worthy doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Commonness of a practice isn't persuasive to me.

This is another point where we disagree: I would much rather have the Nazi understand what's wrong with white supremacism: Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist.
And I have a really hard time understanding why you "WOULDN'T CARE IF HE DIED HORRIBLY", and yet you get really upset because somebody egged him ....

If I ever met him, I would throw this at him!

No.

I'm just pointing out facts.

If you want to pretend violence isn't violence when the person getting it falls into some category to make it feel more warm and fluffy go for it.
