Who says it’s only American liberals who advocate for violence. On Monday, the Chorlton Brewing Company, a beer company based in Manchester in the UK, tweeted that his fellow crazy liberals should hit “fascists” (a term they reserve for anyone to the right of Bernie Sanders) over the head with bricks. And the response on Twitter was not friendly.
Chorlton’s tweet was withdrawn. But the tweet was captured for posterity and can be seen here and below:
Do you think the 2nd Amendment will be destroyed by the Biden Administration?
“Note to our customers: please don’t throw our beer over fascists. Hit them over the head with a brick as is traditional,” the company said on Twitter.
Apparently, the tweet was sent in response to news that someone threw a milkshake at the right-wing Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage who is not a fascist.
One would think that after getting caught (and withdrawing the tweet) the beer company back down and apologize. Not these idiots! Instead, the company doubled down, with the owner suggesting that violence against those to the right of center is perfectly acceptable.
The owner of Chorlton Brewing Company doubled down on his call to "hit them (people like Nigel Farage) over the head with a brick", stating that murdering "far-right" politicians and their supporters is "acceptable" because it will prevent the genocide of 12 million people. pic.twitter.com/11SUBmppxO

Based on his answer, it seems as if Mr. Marcus drank too much of his own product, and he appears to be a very nasty drunk.
After advocating bloody violence against those with a different point of view, the company whined when it allegedly received a “threat” by email which read, “You people are asking for trouble.”

Well, from a marketing point of view, Marcus was asking for trouble. But Is that really a threat? Or is Mr. Marcus still looped? Based on the Twitter reaction, most people are voting for the looped option.
Report it to the @metpoliceuk ? there you go, I did it for you. Might be worth remembering though that recommending anyone should be hit on the head with a brick is inciting violence. Not really the most effective PR exercise was it? Anyway, off for a Badger beer…cheers 🍺

People also attacked their beer. I’ve never tried it, but I bet it belongs in the skunky beer aisle.
Whilst you were brewing cat piss, I studied the brick

The ASPCA must be happy that they give jobs to cats.
Hope no one gets hurt after drinking your unpleasant beverages then hitting people with bricks. But if that is the clientele you are after maybe you won’t be in business much longer as they will be in jail

Hope someone hits you in the mouth with a brick. So let's all put chorlton brewery out of business.

Mike Marcus hates violence but only when it's against himself. Typical Antifa coward. pic.twitter.com/5k5JvTO3DY

Loads of people who have never bought your beer in their lives now declaring they won't buy your beer, I bet you're heartbroken

Thanks for linking the name Mike Marcus up above. A bit of googling and low and behold we find Antifa! Seems this guy has a track record of being a violence endorsing leftist. https://t.co/bqgG8cRzRB

Just throw some bricks at them. That's a safe and non-violent way to deal with this. According to you.

You were not ‘asking’ for trouble. You were ‘promoting’ trouble. The fact that you can only see this in one way is just a tribute to your oblivious partisanship. I hope nothing further happens, but if it does, then you will have helped foment it.

Let meremember – live by the sword die by the sword – that's what the old adage says?

That guy offered very sage advice,
Marcus broke the first rule of marketing and sales, NEVER put down customers or potential customers, I would not be surprised if the sales of his beer decline.
