What Happens When A White Supremacist Likes Captain America?

Here is a tweet from John Ralston of the Nevada Independent newspaper regarding a photo of Senator Dean Heller standing next to Peter Cvjetanovic, identified as one of the white nationalist protestors in Charlottesville:

This was replied to by Captain America and Secret Empire writer Nick Spencer,

I’d argue that’s a false equivalence. But then I would, wouldn’t I? But what goes around, comes around. From that same protest…

If white supremacists committing acts of violence on the street are eagerly embracing your Captain America imagery, is it then also worthwhile to ask yourself why?

Obviously, the real answer is “Because they’re morons.” Which, considering they are white nationalists, shouldn’t be much of a stretch.
