Apart from common thinking and some minor groups here, we really do not like nazis in Germany.

Given he was only punched once seems wrong to say he was beaten up.

Good. Fuck him. Act like an asshole, get treated like one. Edit: throwing this here since a lot of people are trying to assume my intent. I'm not saying what the assailant did should be legal. I'm not saying it is the best course to deal with it. Hell, it won't lead to any sort of change at all. What I am saying is that I'm not going to lose a wink of sleep over some racist Dick being punched for being a racist Dick. That's all. You don't have to like my position, or agree with it, and that's fine. I'm by no means saying it's the optimal solution, I'm simply saying that I don't have a shred of sympathy for the guy who got punched.

Not sure what this guy thought would happen. Nazism ruined Germany for multiple generations and brought untold destruction to the nation. Not shocking he got beat up

Back when I visited Germany, 8th Grade Summer, we were all told to not joke around about Nazis or Hitler, they take it still very seriously, which I can understand.

Good. I'm sick of the normalization of these assholes under some sort of free speech. Nazism is an evil the likes of which we cannot allow to gain footing anywhere ever again. Millions of people died to stop it. Fuck that tourist and fuck those guys in Virgina.

Just got back from Germany and visited Dachau concentration camp and saw another tourist get their picture taken inside of one of the gas chambers they used to sanitize the clothes. It was so uncomfortable to see that.

>His assailant fled the scene, and is being sought for causing bodily harm. I'm sure they are trying SOOOOPER hard to find him.

A fantastic example of the great expression, "play stupid games, win stupid prizes"

Why the fuck would you do this anywhere in Europe, much less Germany? The fuck's wrong with you?
13 Aug 2017 22:16 - +130
Can't believe I have to say this in 2017, but fuck Nazis.

Dummy. You don't do that shit in Germany. It's literally their greatest regret. All nazi memorabilia is banned in country minus education and "art" but even that is a fuzzy line. Moral of the story, don't be a nazi in modern day Germany.

You guys do realize it's illegal to do the Nazi salute in Germany?

As an American I find it oddly comforting to know there are also dumb Chinese people out there doing the same thing
13 Aug 2017 21:59 - +48
I'm gonna guess that they're a little sensitive about the whole nazi thing over there. What a moron!

Dear Germany, Thanks. America
13 Aug 2017 23:47 - +44
Thanks for keeping shit in check, Germany.

Guy makes asshole joke and gets punched. Non news.

This is terrible, I hope the German's hand was okay after he punched him.
