New Game Lets You Punch ‘Nazis’ Like Richard Spencer, Milo Yiannopoulos
After January’s infamous punch-out of white supremacist Richard Spencer, there’s now a game that lets you relive the act and sock him, Milo Yiannopoulos, Adolf Hitler and others in the face.
“Punch a Nazi,” modeled on a boxing game, allows you to lay into the three men on your phone or desktop, and was released by the company Super Deluxe.
Spencer, advocate of a white “ethnostate,” was assaulted in Washington, D.C. after attending President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The incident sparked a wave of debate over whether it was acceptable to commit violence against white supremacists and those described as “Nazis.”
Spencer also coined the term “alt-right,” the label preferred by contemporary white nationalists.
Yiannopoulos and Spencer dispute their characterization as Nazis, both claiming that’s a smear put on them by their opponents.
