A disturbing propensity for violence

An Elizabeth Warren supporter (wearing stickers for her campaign) punches an independent candidate for Senate. I really don't understand what drives this sort of thing at all. Do these people actually think they are helping their candidates?

I suspect this behavior is actually a remnant of the past when it actually was politically helpful. Nowadays the ability to record, publish, and prove the violence makes it unhelpful. But in the past, if you could shut down a speaker with violence, threats, and intimidation... there was no way to prove it. There was no news.
