A man who walked around Seattle wearing a Nazi armband got punched in the face after he allegedly harassed a black passenger on a bus.
BuzzFeed reports that the unidentified Nazi was first spotted riding on a bus, where witnesses say he was harassing a black passenger. From there, anti-fascist activists used social media to track the man’s whereabouts, and he was eventually spotted on a street corner in the downtown area.
While there, he got into a confrontation with unidentified people who objected to him walking around wearing a Nazi arm band. At one point, one man punched the neo-Nazi directly in the face, which knocked him onto the sidewalk.
In an interview with BuzzFeed, one of the anonymous social media users who helped track the Seattle Nazi applauded the unidentified man who knocked the Nazi to the ground.
“I would say that we successfully identified, tracked and coordinated to neutralize a clear and present danger to Seattle,” said the user. “Whether we coordinated the actual punch or not… I, for one, applaud the anonymous hero.”

DOJ argues Congress can’t stop Trump Org from taking foreign payments — despite Constitution’s emoluments clause
The so-called emoluments clause has been the center of a case that many legal scholars have been making that President Donald Trump is regularly violating the Constitution by continuing to accept payments from foreign governments via his businesses.
The Washington Post reports that an attorney from the Trump Department of Justice argued on Monday that the emoluments clause doesn't actually prevent Trump from accepting payments from foreign governments, even though the clause specifically states that "no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
Trump unleashes yet another maddening scandal as he opens the door to Saudi Arabian interference
I don’t often talk about how mad I am. I don’t often talk about how mad I am, because talking often about how mad I am prevents me from speaking clearly and rationally. I want to speak clearly and rationally. There is so much need for speaking clearly and rationally amid the endless streams of waste and filth polluting our public discourse.
But I can’t speak clearly and rationally at the expense of morality. Morality often begins with a feeling. The Gospels tell us of Jesus looking on the poor—he could hear and smell their misery—and he was “moved with pity.” But another way of putting it, another way of translating ?????????????, is that the rabbi felt compassion “in his guts.
US Supreme Court lets stand Kentucky law with abortion restrictions
The US Supreme Court on Monday let stand a Kentucky law that requires doctors to make patients seeking an abortion look at fetal images taken by echocardiogram and to listen to their heartbeat.
Without explanation, as is customary, the top US court refused to hear a suit challenging the state law, which was passed in 2017.
The law requires doctors to show patients echocardiogram images of the fetus and describe to them its size and organs and have them listen to its heartbeat if it is detectable, even if the patient objects.
Kentucky's authorities justified the measure as needed to obtain the patient's "informed consent" before proceeding with an abortion.
