Punching neo-Nazis like Richard Spencer has, somehow, become a subject of intense political debate. No one is more aware of that than Thor Harris, drummer for the experimental group Swans, who had his Twitter account suspended on Wednesday after he posted an instructional video for punching far-right extremists. It's important to note that Harris is advocating self-defence. "If you're thinking of punching Nazis or other members of the Republican Party, don't do it. Peaceful protest is always better," he says. Of course, for those occasions when reasoning with far-right extremists doesn't work, Harris is here to tell us how to throw a punch: "Just launch your fist like a missile."
