“When you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will,'” he concluded.

The post has since received over 10,000 comments, ranging from “Well said Sir” to Patton oswalt is a p—-.”
