Pick1 1
Like the video of westboro protestor getting tackled by a vet...this made me smile, then made me think "Shame on you for smiling."

I try not to delight in violence but good God can it be cathartic at times.

I don't think the response was quite as enlightened as you make it out to be.

This is just the Chick-fil-A's coming home to roost.

Yeah, did you consider the possibility that folks just thought being called a fag was just about the worst thing to be called.

Folks definitely thought it was crossing some line but I'm not sure is was the line that you thought it was Charles.

Yes, because nothing says "progress" like 3 or 4 people beating on one person as he lies on the ground.

Hey, they were civil and charitable.... his head was a target rich environment for a boot and NO ONE kicked him. He wasn't hurt, just properly bitch slapped a bit.... BTW, FTR, I am older, white and straight... loved it...;-D

Did he "Get learnt" or did they reinforce that being gay is a bad thing?

Looks to me like the asshole went in there looking for a fight. I mean, if he didn't like the clientele when he looked around, instead of throwing a big hissy, why didn't he just, I dunno, LEAVE?

I'd argue that he got slapped around a bit for being a dickhead. "Who you calling a fag" is less about "it's bad to be a fag" and more about "who are you to come in here and insult people," with the understanding that he is using "faggot" in the pejorative sense.

I wish Mudede would properly cite his articles. Where did this happen and what is the link for more info on this story? It is a minor gripe I have with pretty much all of his writing.

@4-6, I think it pretty clear a couple of the guys are gay, and their straight girlfriends are standing up for them. They're all standing up for each other against a real life troll.
I think this is delightful.
@8 Absolutely! He got off easy. Would have been WAY to easy to kick that face.
