Desus & Mero

Is It OK to Punch Nazis?

Desus and Mero talk about alt-right leader Richard Spencer getting decked in the face.

The past few days were filled with many memorable moments. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Protesters took to the streets of cities across the country to fight for women's rights. And Richard Spencer, the alt-right figurehead and white supremacist, was punched in the face on camera.

The footage of Spencer flooded social media and quickly became a popular meme, but it also sparked a major debate. Is it OK to punch someone… even if this person is a Nazi?

Some argued that even though Richard Spencer is a horrible person, it's still not cool to knock him out—including an ethicist that VICE recently interviewed. However, VICELAND's Desus and Mero disagree, saying that it's totally fine to kick some major bigoted ass.
