CNN contributor Jason Kander delivered a blow to neo-Nazi punch-absorber Richard Spencer’s ego on Twitter over the musical Cabaret.
White nationalist dork Spencer posted a tweet claiming “tomorrow belongs to us.” The phrase is a references to a show tune from 1972’s screen adaptation of Cabaret, an ultra-queer musical about the nightclub scene in 1930s Berlin.

It’s a little odd that a neo-Nazi would reference a fictional Liza Minnelli film rather than an authentic Nazi anthem. Couldn’t he think of any actual Hitler Youth songs?
Anyway, Kander quickly jumped in with a response:
Hey buddy, that song you love was written by my uncle. He's been married to my other uncle for 40 years. And he's a Jew.
Sing it proud. https://t.co/yrL4242sl5

Richard Spencer excels at what Twitter users refer to as the art of the self-own. His wife left him (though they haven’t officially divorced yet), he got punched in the head while talking about a cartoon frog, he got thrown out of CPAC and recently he lost his tax-exempt status by forgetting to file. We look forward to seeing how he wrecks himself next.
