I know I've seen this somewhere before

What is it about breaking windows as political expression by the right that seems so oddly familiar?

As all of my conservative friends say, every time something like this happens, this isn't them, just some isolated nuts, and besides, liberals do it too.

Also, the tooth fairy lives in my underwear.

Harkens back to Krystalnacht

I was wondering if I was the only person who thought exactly that.

Seems crystal clear to me.

As I posted on Facebook, they have all the bravery and maturity of the 12 year old vandals they emulate.

Twits.

But they've had their Reichstag fire already... if they couldn't take proper advantage of it then, well, tough schnitzels. Ya snooze, ya lose.

-- Steve's memetic prophylactic must've leaked; he feels dirty after reading just the sidebar.

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…

Dude! Can I metaquote you? this had GOT to be the BEST Braveheart/Conan political commentary mashup EVAR!

I heard a heartwarming story today about an incident in which the brother of a member of Congress had the propane supply line to his house cut. Apparently the [expletive deleted] who recommended this form of terrorism peaceful civil disobedience posted the wrong brother's address.

It's good to see such a healthy debate, isn't it?

Not the propane supply to his house, the hose between his gas grill and propane tank.

The amusing part is

that they are behaving exactly the way Al'Quida does, and they scream that those people are EVIL!!!

Must defend ourselves.
Get guns.
Shoot people who disagree with us, for any reason.

Re: The amusing part is

The annoying part is that these arseclowns are so unselfaware that it's impossible to point out that they *are* the Protestant Taliban.

-- Steve wonders what'd happen if one published a political cartoon of Reagan wearing a khaffia and a dynamite belt.

You might be recalling British suffragists?

Why the rock with III on it?

Something about how this whackjob and his ilk are claiming spiritual descent from the fact that only three percent of American colonists fought in the American Revolution. Basically, they're like the Snapple ad: "Threedom is Freedom!"

I used to think that, since these people were dimwitted middle-aged losers -- the omega males of this Earth -- they wouldn't have the cunning or the energy to do anything really violent.

Then there was this guy.

Maybe they have to be 89 years old in order to really pop.

Ah yes, the old "The punishment for not paying your taxes is execution(*)" argument.

(*) Under certain circumstances, which I imagine also apply to littering, jay-walking, turning left on a red, tagging fences, etc. Possibly even to breaking windows.

Much more current.

Yeppers. Been seeing a lot of that sort of thing reported around the blogosphere.

But of course, "liberals" have publicly urged Limbaugh to make good on his promise to move to Costa Rica if the health care bill passes, so both sides are equally guilty and just as extreme as each other.

Smashing glass is tremendous fun! Also cucurbits.

Smashing glass is tremendous fun!

One would think, but having spent a summer in a bottle-casting plant I can wearily vouch that after the thousandth or so it gets just as dreary as any other repetitive act.

-- Steve still associates the sound of breaking glass with "Danger! Danger!" after that one time the bottles jammed on the conveyor and began popping off the belt at alarmingly high velocities...
