I ended up writing a research paper last semester about why people with views similar to neo-nazism exercising their first amendmet rights like this is a good thing… I used the Westboro Baptist Church as an example saying that their open demonstration of homophobia and hate has sparked more positive social change than negative.
This guy is a great example. Nobody is going to look at a skin head wearing a swastika in public and think, “Now here’s a guy I want to be like.” Because he has the right to express his ideas, however morally controversial they may be, he is sparking debate regarding his own views, making people think about the social and moral implications of his lifestyle. His right to dress like that is making people think more about the topic than if he had dressed like an average person, and because of this, he is doing society a favor by helping people question Nazi ideology in today’s world, instead of just reading about it in a textbook.
