Relatively Obscure: And maybe beating someone down in a mob. That's often kind of shiatty too.
ggowins: Wait, is that Andy Reid?
vygramul: Can't get a better use of that tag than that.
JohnAnnArbor: Ah, I remember that. The ones who got arrested for assault had some interesting "supporters," who posted placards all over town saying "No free speech for fascists!" (anyone to the right of Castro in their thinking). (Their signs always included a demand of 40 hours pay for 30 hours work in the fine print, no matter what the subject du jour was.)It was a confluence of jerks all the way around.
rudemix: Is there any back story on the fatcist? Did his life change at all? Did he become a better person in any way, shape or form?
I Browse: I'm waiting to hear how this will somehow be spun to make her the bad guy. Don't let me down Fark.
hardinparamedic: Relatively Obscure: And maybe beating someone down in a mob. That's often kind of shiatty too.Yeah, but on the other hand, he's a Nazi.
boog: FTA: "Liberal, progressive and multicultural, Ann Arbor was an unusual place for the KKK to choose..."Later: "There were shouts of 'Kill the Nazi' and the man began to run - but he was knocked to the ground. A group surrounded him, kicking him and hitting him with the wooden sticks of their placards."
number8: Well, this is a quicker trip from the front page of Reddit to the front page of Fark than one usually sees.
macadamnut: It was unclear whether the man was a Ku Klux Klan supporter, but to the anti-KKK protesters, his clothes and tattoos represented exactly what they had come to resist. The Confederate flag he wore was for them a symbol of hatred and racism, while the SS tattoo on his arm pointed to a belief in white supremacy, or worse.What was unclear about it?
Old_Chief_Scott: In 1996, a fat teenage black girl saved the life of a fat white redneck from a fat mob trying to kill his fat Nazi assfixed
rugman11: Great find, though my misreading of this bit made me chuckle:"That some in Ann Arbor have been heard grumbling that she should have left the man to his fate, only speaks of how far they have drifted from their own humanity. And of the crying need to get it back.Keshia's choice was to affirm what they have lost.Keshia's choice was human.Keshia's choice was hope."By Pulitzer Prize-winning commentator Leonard Pitts Jr. The Miami Herald, 29 June 1996They're giving Pultizers to internet comments now? I need to step up my game.

I'd truly like to know more about him. He was, after all, apparently standing peacefully with the protestors, not marching with the bad guys.
