CBS explicitly justifies punching nazis in promotional video for some agitprop drama. Spot is ~90 seconds long, nigger giving 3/5ths-ologue staring directly into camera telling viewers to punch nazis. Video ends with famous clip of Spencer getting suckerpunched in back of head.

“Is it all right to hit a Nazi unprovoked? I was always taught never to throw the first punch, never to instigate. Defend, but don’t attack. But then I saw a video of the white nationalist Richard Spencer being punched in the face during an interview. I realized Spencer was in a pressed suit, wearing a tie, being interviewed like his opinion mattered — like it should be considered part of the conversation, like neo-Nazism is just one political point of view.


“And then I realized there’s no better way to show some speech is not equal. Some speech requires a more visceral response. It’s like Overton’s window — that’s the term for which ideas are tolerated in public discourse. Well, Overton’s window doesn’t mean shit unless it comes with some enforcement. So yeah, this is enforcement. It’s time to punch a few Nazis.”
