    I agree. In fact, I do have the urge to side with him on this one specific isolated incident.
    If the confrontation really went down exactly as described, then I actually feel a twinge bad for him losing his membership.

    Because it's one thing to be a shitty person, but does that mean he should be randomly harrassed during a casual workout? One thing is not related to the other.
    What's next? No trips to the store? Can't buy a car? Can't have a home? Go live in the streets because of terrible opinions? That shit don't sit right with me.
    Getting banned after doing nothing wrong in the incident itself does NOT feel like justice at all. The gym was clearly already aware of his presence, being on their roster and all.
    They ONLY kicked him out now because someone targetted him and caused a scene. Otherwise, there would have never been an incident to speak of.

    Regardless of the moral high ground of her argument, the lady did NOT paint herself in glory in this particular instance.
    Regardless of his political views, however rotten they are, he was (literally) exercising his right as a citizen to go out and do his daily everyday stuff.
    If it was anyone else on the receiving end, I guarantee that the woman would have been warned or thrown out for starting trouble.

    Maybe I'm just a big sensitive pacifist pushover, but that's who I am and I'm comfortable with that.
    I don't even agree with those people who sucker punched him, because (justified or not) that was still objectively criminal assault.
    But it's whatever. I'm sure he can sign up somewhere else and this lady can enjoy her shortlived bragging right around her workplace.

    I'm seeing a lot of reports stating it was an explosive device which contained nails. Not 100% confirmed but there also might have been 2 devices and the police did a controlled explosion on one they found. Anyway, it doesn't look to be some kind of gas explosion or any accident.

    This thing is obviously a terrorist attack. They've really targeted the youth this time, and plus it's the concert of a major pop singer. Which kind of means the western world in a way.

    Guy was working out at the gym when a woman confronted him on being the Most Punchable Nazi. It created a big scene and, in the end, the gym revoked HIS membership.

    Gonna admit to mixed feelings here. While seeing a Nazi suffer is never unpleasant, were he anyone else people would be siding with him against the woman, I think.
    That woman is Christine Fair,a professor who specialises in South Asia,more specifically Pakistan.

    She confronted him about being a "neo-nazi" at the gym and claims that his presence harms the employees's present there and counts as "unsafe working environ" because the employees are people other than white male supremacist,and he is a supposedly a white male supremacist.

    She was saying twitter that "being a nazi shouldn't be 9 to 5 thing" or something like that

    I too agree it is going way over the line


    And another terror attack in Britain,seems like a big one this time.Right around election time.

    Honestly, who cares about Richard Spencer losing his gym membership? I really don't even care if it was unfair to him. Life isn't fair and of all the shitty unfair things life can throw at you, losing your gym membership because a woman truthfully called you a Nazi is getting off easy.

    So...who cares?

    At the time I found it interesting, of only because in this instance I actually found myself siding with him (as I said, had she accosted anyone else people would be up in arms at her)

    Granted, rather more serious events have since rightfully overshadowed that one.

    Update: Controlled explosion by police was on a pile of abandoned clothing, not a suspicious item. There was no 2nd explosive device.

    Explosion that killed and hurt all those people happened outside venue as concert goers were leaving the arena.

    It seems like the perfect attack on western society.

    Impressionable kids and youngsters going to a pop-concert of a relatively well known pop-musician attacked by a terrorist.Chaos and mayhem everywhere.The visuals are frightening.

    Just what the aim of these attackers is

    y yeah of course, I feel stupid not to have thought about it now.


    And okay, I thought there was something to feel bad about him. Also, the comparison with being banned of a store doesn't work though (imo), but being banned from a bar or a nightclub for instance would work I guess. I assume buying a car and other stuffs were deliberate exaggerations. And obviously, he wasn't banned because of his opinions or this particular scene, but the future potential scenes now that people know who he is (---and eventually the reputation of the place). The gym could argue that since he's a "controversial figure" they chose to ban him in order to avoid any other similar scenes. And the law is probably giving rights to safeguard the interests of a company too. So in the end, this isn't as much "illegal" or "lacking of justice" as many people are trying to make it sound like.

    It is very convenient that this 'terrorist' attack took place right before an important election. The person currently in the lead wants a nicer more understanding Britain that benefits everyone, especially the poor, whereas May wants a tougher Britain that benefits her party and the richest. Just when it seemed like May is losing she can pull the terrorist card to attack Corbyn and swing people to vote against 'terrorist sympathizers'.

    How very convenient....
