    For me at least the line is crossed when you break the law.

    Do you not recognise the coldblooded eyes of a violent killer?
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    Breaking unjust laws is a form of protest that had been quite effective.

    It pretty shocking to me that a lot of otherwise intelligent people do not understand how the nazis assumed power to begin with and actually think humiliation is a good idea. I mean yikes read a book or something will ya?

    I am sure they'd prefer the milkshakes over all the death threats.

    I swear fascist/ism is turning into a buzzword thats losing its impact due to improper use.

    Is the murder of Jo Cox enough for people to say they don't want hateful divisive figures in their communities and take action?

    I wouldn't call laws against throwing food at people unjust, but I guess that wasn't what you were thinking about.

    You may want to read the poll again. It asks you about milkshakes.

    Also fight them at the polls, not this petty shit.
    Not that I’m condoning the milkshaking of far right douchebags, but those two things aren’t mutually exclusive.

    Nope, simply pointing out the flaw in the logic.

    Except for the little fact that the Nazi's were socialists.

    The Far-Left lost the moral high-ground years ago, when they decided they were entitled to beat people near death in the streets, shoot up baseball games, and attempt to assassinate politicians... This is the hilarious irony of the Far-Left. They are the very things they claim to be against, but they do these mental gymnastics to justify it because they're a bunch of delusional ideologies. Like a cult, they think their way is the only way...
    Considering the far-right are running people down with their cars and commiting mass-shootings I think the people who are throwing dairy products at politicians manage to keep the moral high-ground.

    If you break the law you will almost 100% lose my support, was that better?

    Note: I'm talking about the person, not the case it self. We really should be able to behave better than primates.
