A man from Colorado was reportedly stabbed by an “antifascist” upset over his supposedly “Nazi-like” haircut.
According to The New York Post, Joshua Witt “is avowedly not a neo-Nazi.”
“But he believes his long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides haircut got him mistaken for one – and nearly stabbed to death by a confused anti-fascist,” the outlet continues.
Witt stated in a Facebook post that he was opening his car door in the parking lot of a restaurant in Sheridan, Colorado when a knife-wielding man approached him demanding, “are you one of them neo-Nazis?”
“I threw my hands up and once the knife kind of hit, I dived back into my car and shut the door and watched him run off west, behind my car,” he said.
“The dude was actually aiming for my head. I was more in shock because I was just getting a milkshake.”
After some discussion with friends concerning what on earth could have convinced the attacker he was a Nazi, Witt reportedly concluded that it must’ve been his haircut.
Joshua Witt’s haircut is similar to those worn by self-described white nationalists like Richard Spencer.
It’s also similar, however, to hairstyles worn by the likes of British soccer player David Beckham.
In other words, it’s just a hairstyle.
That didn’t stop an “antifascist” from doing this to an innocent man, though.
In a comment on that post, Witt states that he has received three stitches on his hand as a result of the attack.
“It could have been much worse,” he writes in another comment.
Sadly, the political left has gotten incredibly violent as of late.
Not long ago, another “antifascist” by the name of Eric Clanton allegedly swung a bike lock at a Trump supporter’s head, causing serious injuries.
Unfortunately, organizations like CNN refuse to acknowledge the problematic violence from the left, choosing instead to defend groups like Antifa as simply fighting against Nazis and white supremacists.
But what is CNN really saying with statements like that?
If political violence is suddenly excusable because the target is deemed evil enough, where does it end? Does it?
