In my last post on this, this morning, I kinda ground a cultural axe…
Irrespective of the ‘who’… the what and where are not really being adequately distinguished from normal lefty protest tomfoolerry and contemporary campus hijinks. But what Woody and his pals did at the Capital is way more provocative.
These guys went into the capital, into a public gathering, with black masks on and started throwing fireworks around.
I’m somewhat surprised they didn’t end up shot dead. Cuz any armed security present would have had ironclad justification to do just that. To the extent that didn’t happen, ya know, its merely because in this country we know that the black bloc is the black bloc and not Hezbollah, and the normative, implicit assumption is the black bloc doesn’t throw grenades.
But any proximate security would have had justification to shoot masked intruders throwing ‘bombs’.
They are playing with fire there. Its going to be a pity and a waste borne of stupidity when some of these fellas die for a revolution that never comes.
