Punx Against Punx #51 ‘Fight the Right’

“Fight the Right” is the title for this week’s meeting of the International Socialist Organization here in Rochester. I wrote this comic with the upcoming “White Civil Rights” rally in Washington DC in mind. The racist far Right are violently attacking minorities, immigrants, and anyone they don’t like. They have the cops on their side and a spoiled rich idiot in the White House who sympathizes with their cause. Now is the time to take a stand.” -Dave Rine
