Everybody knows and loves this bit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and conservatives will no doubt recognize exactly what we’re about to discuss as becoming a normal, if depressing, part of modern political life.
Last fall, I wrote about the defenestration of Jeremy Hambly (who has a popular YouTube channel) over some comments that he made about a semi-famous Magic: the Gathering cosplayer. In the ensuing months, the temperature has ramped up on Hambly from the predictable sources — mostly internet-based Social Justice Warrior gas-bags — but this past weekend saw the culmination of such language in the real world, when Hambly was physically assaulted at GenCon, which is the world’s largest gaming convention.

Yikes indeed. It seems that the mere presence of a problematic person such as Hambly is enough to send some lunatic leftists into a violent rage. From Campus Reform:
According to YouTuber Jeremy Hambly and multiple eyewitness statements, Professor Matthew Fantastic Loter repeatedly punched Hambly outside of an Indianapolis bar, then broke a window when Hambly fled inside.
Loter is a professor at Quinnipiac University who has threatened to fight “Nazis,” and now has apparently made good on that threat by choking and punching a person he perceives to be a fascist. As I said: conservatives should be no strangers to seeing and understanding that this is a growing trend on the left.
While wrapping themselves in the flag of defending civilization from evil-doers, the left continues to prove to us that “The violence inherent to the system” typically only comes from one source: Them.
