For many, there’s solidarity, as people laugh at the awful racist’s discomfort. For too many, Nazism is viewed as merely another opinion – not an inherent threat – so a punched Nazi is something small to celebrate. In response, others have equated punching a Nazi with Nazism. “You are just as bad as they are!” is the claim. This is when “We’re better than this!” is a cover for “This upsets me!”.
The moral question remains unanswered.

As we saw last week, the quickest way into the mind of the president-elect is remembering that he sees himself as a supervillain. When Mark Hamill—voice of the Joker in Batman animated shows and video games—recorded Trump’s bizarre New Year’s wishes in character, it suddenly made perfect sense.

The Kremlin has brushed off Western concerns about its deployment of cutting-edge missile systems in its Kaliningrad enclave, saying that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was the one disrupting the strategic balance with its plans to put antimissile defenses on Russia's borders.

DISCLAIMER: The cat lives in a good home. Plenty of pictures of him being spoiled. He's a jerk. Seriously. This is not the only person he's attacked. He wasn't "provoked". A grown up was acting overly excited as a joke and the cat walked across the room then back. He wasn't "startled". You can clearly see him walk up and calmly sit while planning his attack. Also, this is not my cat. No reason for me to lie. He is a jerk. Take your threats somewhere else. You can report me for animal abuse all you want. It's. Not. Mine. And it's not abused. A human was attacked here, not a cat. 🙄 Only in 2016 would people blame a person who didn't touch an animal for getting attacked by said animal bc they were excited.
