One of the downfalls of being a Nazi is that pretty much everyone—save for other Nazis—just straight-up hates you. Richard Spencer, the world’s most-punchable Nazi, is continuing to learn that lesson pretty frequently these days, first with Depeche Mode calling him a cunt and now with the nephew of one of the songwriters behind Cabaret’s “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” issuing a sick burn on Twitter.
