What is a Nazi?
Is it a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party?
Is it someone who actually advocates for National Socialism?
Is it someone who supports a white ethnostate?
Is it someone who wears swastikas and idolizes Adolf Hitler?
Or is it someone who simply says things that you don’t like?
Former Comic Crusaders writer
In Pendragon’s op-ed, she specifically calls for more violence against Hambly.
“I do not condone violence in most situations, I feel as though our words should be powerful enough to convey our messages and invoke change, but sometimes this is not the case. Sometimes our words, voting with our wallets and refusal to entertain the rhetoric we disagree with falls upon deaf ears. And if that rhetoric is dangerous to others? Well, I won’t be losing any sleep over the fact that a fist made the point a bit more clear.”
She ends by saying
“So punch a fucking Nazi. Cap did it!”
was fired by Comic Crusaders who responded by pulling the article with this official response.
ANNOUNCEMENT: The "OP-ED: To Punch a Nazi or Not to Punch a Nazi?' has been taken down in order to keep the peace & prove WE do NOT believe in violence as a response to ANYTHING! Let's now stop the hate & find a REAL solution to this issue and go back to loving #comics!

Pendragon who protected her twitter account and shut down her social media (the same thing Matt Loter did after the alleged assault), citing what she called ‘death threats’ which later turned out to calls for self-defense against the violence she was openly advocating for.
For more context of the article in question watch the analysis videos of Richard Meyer and Jeremy Hambly himself. Everyday left-wing advocates are openly calling for violence against who they call Nazis. From Comic book professionals to Hollywood celebrities such as Dave Bautista, James Gunn, and Dan Harmon to name a few. The calls to violence are growing and as these people believe there is a growing number of Nazi extremists taking over the country, it seems like these same people are endorsing and acting on the same type of violence and intimidation against their enemies that was ordered by Adolf Hitler himself.
