Sorry, but I’m getting sick of conservatives becoming punching bags simply because the Left is going batshit insane.
Let’s hope that one of these twerps doesn’t pick on the wrong guy to vent his Trump-hatred.
I think we all know what I’m talking about, here.
From Stephen Green:
Now we have this bit of non-thinking from studious non-thinker Alexandria Occasional-Cortex.
• NYC was going to give Amazon a three-billion dollar tax break; i.e., not collect that much in taxes from Amazon’s new NYC HQ2.
• Now that Amazon has cancelled HQ2, AOC believes that NYC can spend that money they never collected, from a business which isn’t coming to NYC, on NYC’s favorite progressive causes.
As BidnessMan said:
And please note the date on his post… so much more stupid has flowed since then.
The late (and much-missed) Col. Jeff Cooper once said this about violence:
“One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.”
[pauses to let the applause die down]
So when you set yourself up as a “saboteur” — of a perfectly-legal institution, mind you — and part of your modus operandi is violence, do not be surprised if violence is visited on you in turn. Such as in this instance:
Hunt saboteurs claim they were attacked after one suffered a bloody eye as violence broke out between supporters and placard-wielding protesters during traditional Boxing Day hunts around the country.
Riders with packs of hounds – following scent trails laid in advance to comply with the 2004 Hunting Act forbidding the hunting of foxes with hounds – set out under cloudy skies this morning in order to maintain the tradition.
But scenes of chaos erupted in Elham, Kent, as a saboteur was hospitalised after allegedly being thrown in front of a passing car ‘that deliberately swerved’ before being punched and kicked by a group of hunt supporters.
A hunt saboteur posted an image of his bloodied eye after allegedly being ambushed by ‘two or more men’, according to the Hunt Saboteurs Association.
A spokesperson for the group said: ‘A group of drunken hunt supporters attacked the saboteurs and their vehicle as they tried to leave’.
And the group claimed a 19-year-old female demonstrator was allegedly punched in the face by a hunt supporter in Tenterden, while a band that had turned up to play reportedly had their equipment damaged.
And we have this as evidence:
But let’s make sure that we don’t just see pics of the loonies. Here are a couple of the hunt supporters:
And for my Murkin Readers unfamiliar with the ancient custom, let’s make one thing perfectly clear about all this protesting: it has nothing to do with protecting foxes, although that’s the pretense.
It has everything to do with with abolishing an activity largely enjoyed by the upper- and upper-middle classes — in other words, it’s a class issue.
The very fact that hunting was originally banned by a Labour government headed by the loathsome Tony Blair is sufficient proof thereof.
And all I can say to the hunt supporters is: keep up the good work of thrashing the “sabos” at every opportunity.
