This has *got* to be one of the most outrageous temper tantrums I've ever seen; Mike Vanderboegh (Rachel Maddow points out that he's not so Anti-government to refuse his monthly SSI checks) is advocating breaking windows of Democrat headquarters across America: http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/2010/03/to-all-modern-sons-of-liberty-this-is.html Did you know that Blogger has a "report abuse" button?

Sarah Palin, bless her pointed little ears, is putting rifle scope images on a map of 20 House Democrats. "Don't retreat! RELOAD!".

Louise Slaughter's children have been threatened with "assassination". How's that for "babykiller"? Bart Stupak has received death threats; On reflection, that could have a positive effect. Maybe now he knows how abortion providers feel EVERY DAMN DAY?

It's just been pointed out to me that I am "charmingly naive" when it comes to political violence. In the most recent elections in Zimbabwe, for example, hundreds were killed, thousands were beaten, and woman were dragged off the street and raped. All things being relative, I suppose our brick-throwers are mere small potatoes. However, they are threatening to escalate the violence:

Here's a response written by Mike Vanderboegh on the above web page: "We have a duty to warn people before shooting them. Breaking windows does that."

Now FTW (For the Win) quote: From James Nicoll's comments, this Braveheart/Conan mashup gem--"Modern, soft-bleeding-hearted conservatives. The idea isn't to break windows—the idea is to defenestrate your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their gay partners…" Read the entire thread. http://james-nicoll.livejournal.com/2340991.html

My rule: just because something exists in worse form elsewhere, doesn't necessarily make it good here. It doesn't have to get to Zimbabwe levels before we start noticing that, um, something is going rather wrong.
