Just to make it clear where I stand on this issue. 

Done during an art stream!

Look I get it Nazis are bad, but you do understand that a lot of leftists and especially Antifa with this "Nazi punching" mentality are misusing it to label people they disagree with especially trump supporters​ as Nazis and justify assault towards them right? Now I'm not going to assume you're like that cause I don't know you, but do you see were this mentality is a bit radical?

If you're not assuming I'm "like that" then why bring it up? 

I'm sorry if my stance on the punching of Nazis makes you uncomfortable, but if harshness towards people that are literally genocidal bothers you, then you might want to rethink your priorities.

I like your art by the way you put very good detail in your shading and proportions. I'm not trying to cause beef with this discussion I'm just trying to bring something to your attention when it comes to this matter, if you don't agree with me that's fine we can respectfully disagree just to be clear.

Yes their views are fucked up I'm not disagreeing with that, but you didn't get the point I said a lot of people who have this mentality are labeling people that aren't Nazis as Nazis to justify assault towards them. Why bring it up you ask? I don't know why are you inserting politics in your art? When you make a political statement people are aloud to have a discussion and criticize you.

*allowed

And it's not that I didn't get your point. It's that you don't have one. Yes, people are allowed to challenge my art. Just like I'm allowed to challenge their criticism. If you've got valid criticism, I'll listen; I just don't think "hey other people do X" is relevant here. I don't really care much what other people do and what other generalizations other people make. Just because other people do something that generalizes anyone doesn't automatically make it relevant here. Like, I have lots of other people that are interested in my artwork that are assholes that don't understand boundaries and try to push me into doing free work for them. But that doesn't mean most of my followers are that way and it certainly doesn't mean you're that way just because you like my art too. 

So just like how it wouldn't be fair to associate the behavior of other people that comment/like my art with you, I don't think it's terribly fair for other people's behavior regarding generalizing who is a Nazi to be associated with me. Because that's not what either of us are doing. 

If you've got a comment that is relevant or a concern, then I'll happily hear you. But if your only concern about this piece is based on other people, then that's just not something I value. 

In re: your other reply (which I'll just address here) - you're not offending me. To be frank, you don't know me well enough for that to be possible.

Not sure what you think this piece has to do with the election results, but excellent job on facilitating zero discussion. :thumbsup:

Also, bravo on assuming I support Clinton I guess? Not a good assumption to make though.

The point of my piece is that the mainstream media was perpetuating the idea that the right-wingers were going to be causing violence, when in fact the lefties are the ones being violent. I'm not sure whether you are a Clinton supporter or not, but either way, you are supporting violence against innocent people. It doesn't matter if Spencer's viewpoints are reprehensible, he isn't doing anything, so he doesn't deserve to get punched. If he starts beating people and ordering large amounts of Zyklon-B, then it's time for some Nazi-punching.

The ultimate facts are that small groups on both sides are causing violence. Neither group should be indicative of the whole. 

And I am not supporting violence against innocent people. Nazi ideology is intrinsically violent because it is based on racism and genocide. 

As for Spencer, I didn't bring him up. But we can play with that. He may not be out directly participating in the violence, but he is pushing ideals that will result in violence. He thinks that "At the end of the day, America belongs to white men" (from and penned an essay that asked "we should instead be asking questions like, ‘Does human civilization actually need the Black race?’ ‘Is Black genocide right?’ and, if it is, ‘What would be the best and easiest way to dispose of them?"

He may not be punching people, but he's encouraging others to consider disposing of an entire racial demographic. If that's not violent, then I think we need to seriously reevaluate our definitions.

Your original post was specifically about punching Nazis, and in the description, you said, "Just to make it clear where I stand on this issue." You uploaded this on January 27, just a few days after the incident. It is clear you are talking about Spencer, and that you are okay with him getting punched.

Although Nazi ideology is inherently violent, the Neo-Nazis are no threat. Their movement is too small. If they were to start attacking people now, they would lose all credibility, and their movement would fall apart. The only way they could possibly dream of doing anything violent is if their fringe movement were to grow to the size of an actual political party, 
like the Democrats or the Republicans. But that will never happen, because they are literally Nazis. Trying to terrorize them will not bring them down. If anything, it will help them, because it will give them sympathy. The only way to stop the Neo-Nazis is to tackle their viewpoints with rational arguments, and destroy any credibility they have. And that shouldn't be too hard, since their ideology has so many flaws.

I'm very glad to hear that you apparently know my intents better than I do. 

As for the power that neo-nazis have, Steven Bannon is literally the chief adviser to the POTUS. Their movement may or may not be small, but they literally have a seat in the white house. That is definitely a threat. There have been literal threats of violence from neonazi groups in the United States. 

You cannot have rational discussions with people that literally advocate for genocide.

I mean, you came in on my post with all kinds of assumptions and started defending people that ascribe to nazi ideology. I'd definitely call that a mistake, but that's not really one I want to understand.
