Turns Out, Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer Caught Two Fades Last Week
Like all good things, once is never enough. Last week, Richard Spencer, 2017's most memed neo-nazi, made headlines for all of the right reason when a clip of him getting punched in the face went viral. It was put to just about every great American song in the cannon (from Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands" to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" to Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The USA,") and assured the world that there are still reasonable people living amongst us.
But it turns out that the fade-heard-round-the-world was not the first (and likely not the last) time Spencer's face came in contact with the strong side of justice. A Twitter user shared a play-by-play photo set (see it below) of yet another member of the DC crowd connecting with Spencer's smug face. It's still unclear as to whether this was the first or second punch of the day.

In other similar anti-Nazi news, Shia LaBeouf was arrested early Thursday morning on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges, while participating in a livestream Trump protest outside of a museum in Queens. In one video LaBeouf can be seen speaking about how Trump's presidency has made it normal "to be a Nazi out here," before speaking with police officers and ultimately being taken away.
The police were called after the actor and performance artist got into an argument with another man at the museum, pulled off the man's scarf and proceeded to scratch his face.
Unfortunate situation for Shia, but punching a nazi is about American as apple pie, so for the record: if ever given the opportunity to punch a neo-nazi in the face, please do. We'll work through the issues of your bail later.
