Attack on GOP HQ in Virginia
Don't expect Keith Olbermann to fulminate or the New York Times to editorialize over the dangers of violence on the left, bricks have been thrown through the windows of the Albemarle County, Virginia headquarters of the Republican Party. Three windows were broken.
- 1. The GOP and conservatives generally promptly condemn violence directed against their opponents, while the left tends to justify rage against unfairness, racisms, or the cause-du-jour and celebrate violent revolutionaries (such as Che Guevara);
- 2. The mainstream media generally downplays violence against conservatives (as in the case of the wheelchair-bound black tea partier who was beaten up by thugs wearing SEIU purple shirts;
- 3. Democrats and the left don't mind publicizing threats, and see them as an opportunity to bash their opponents, while Republicans and conservatives tend to discreetly seek help from law enforcement.
