Calling Nazis republican is like calling Democrats communists. It's lazy and distracts from the issue. Cantrell knows this, but he felt like taking a shot at the republican party because it's what he does.
If he honestly cared about this rally, or cared about garnering some sort of counter protest, then he would have made a serious thread title. Instead, he turned this very serious issue into a lame political joke. He can try and deflect it all he wants with "I can't believe you would ignore these nazis to defend republicans!!!", but that was exactly his purpose.
That's why this thread is a joke, and why I don't take Cantrell's indignation about this issue serious. He saw this as nothing more than an opportunity to do what he does, and slam the republican party. Of course it's a shame that someone would take advantage of a situation like this....
