The internet is asking whether it is OK to punch a Nazi, and the answer is no, at least not when the Nazi in question is just standing on the street speaking into a microphone.

In ordinary times everyone, regardless of their political leanings, will ignore a Nazi. That's the best response. These are not ordinary times, and a percentage of our population seems to be enjoying a flirtation with fascism, but that doesn't change the fact that we need to categorically denounce violence against those with different views, even when those views are painful to hear. Don't punch anyone.
