Charlestown musician says he's not the guy who punched the Nazi

Clrvynt talks to Mark Lind, whom the sort of people who "identified" the Marathon bombers online now think was the guy who punched that Nazi down in Washington.

Lind, who spent the day at work in Boston, says he'd never even heard of the guy.

The online mob of Spencer supporters attacking Lind quickly swelled in numbers as the fake news even made its way to infamous white power (and perhaps weather-obsessed) message boards Stormfront and The Daily Stormer, where he was also falsely accused of being Jewish.

Condoning violence?

I mean I'm not condoning racism, but i also don't approve of communism and you don't see me running around punching far-left Bostonians.

Where am I condoning violence? I'm reporting on a local man who finds himself besieged by online basement boys for something he didn't do.

Able to read?

Punching Nazi's is a time honored, US tradition. I'm also for punching Fascists, and Dictators, and the occasional Monarch.

These aren't people you have a mere policy disagreement with when they're calling for genocide. And punching them seems to work well.

Karma Police
Come punch this shill
His Himmler hairdo
Is making me feel ill
And we have crashed his party

This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
When you mess with us

You should always punch a Nazi, whenever you get a chance.

I know plenty of insufferable communists, but not a single communist who publicly advocates for ethnic cleansing. That you can't see the clear line distinguishing Nazis is a good reason for people to be afraid of YOU.

Genocide's not exactly a foreign concept in Communist history.

No surprise that the Trump Nazis aren't big on facts.

Also, Nazis like and support Dick Spenser. This is fuhrer-ther proof.

I mean that sounds more like his Brother's MO. I am sure you can find find more people who were punched in the face by "White Trash" Rob than Mark.

Best line might have been "I haven't punched anyone since 1995"

What if we ALL confessed to punching the Nazi? I mean, I didn't, but I would have.
