So I hear about neo-Nazis marching through the streets of Charlottesville carrying torches, and I have newsreels of Nuremberg 1938 in mind, only in color, of course. And then I start seeing actual photos from Friday night, and they’re carrying… tiki torches. Two dollar fifty cent fucking tiki torches. With the caps still attached. (And they probably got the citronella oil that was on sale, didn’t they.)

People are winding up dead and in the hospital because of a bunch of white guys who look like extras in a high school class movie project? “The banality of evil” is being superceded by… I can’t even come up with a term that captures how lame these people are combined with people are fucking dying because of these pieces of shit.

What the actual fuck.
