Antiwar Violence

Recently, Skye over at Midnight Blue reported that an antiwar protestor at a pro war rally slapped her. (Maries Two Cents has pretty good coverage of the whole incident) The perpetuator was arrested, and Skye is considering legal action. I’ve been to Midnight Blue before, and I have always enjoyed that blog, and I hope that Skye is okay.

Unfortunately, what happened to Skye is not uncommon. Antiwar protestors frequently employ violence. There are many examples—for example, a group of antiwar people splashed stage blood on churchgoers during the sermon at Easter Mass at Holy Name Church in Chicago. Somebody recently exploded a bomb in front of a Times Square recruitment center. Berkley protesters vandalized a recruiting station. There are multitudes of examples of this kind of thing happening.

Most antiwar people claim to be devoted to “nonviolence.” The only problem is, “nonviolence” seems to be defined as “guns are not involved.” Anything else goes.

And antiwar violence is more or less accepted on the left. Mainstream liberals rarely condemn these actions—on the contrary, they either maintain a stance of moral neutrality (striking pro-war people is wrong, but so is the war) or outright support.

One can expect a certain amount of hypocrisy from the left about antiwar protesters—after all, most leftists are sympathetic to the their cause. What is inexcusable is the difference in the treatment given to protesters on the right.

Leftists regularly label pro-life protestors as extremists and radicals. Whenever a pro-life advocate goes too far and performs some inexcusable act (such as blowing up an abortion clinic), the media categorizes all pro-lifers as terrorists. Liberal prosecutors often attempt to thwart pro-lifers by any means possible, such as prosecuting protesters for violating racketeering laws.

Compare the opposition to pro-life protesters with the acceptance even the most extreme antiwar groups receive. They are rarely prosecuted for their indisputable crimes. The people who vandalized the Berkley recruiting center were not given the slightest bit of legal trouble. No prominent antiwar people are forced condemn the illegal actions of antiwar people—on the contrary, some, such as Michael Moore, encourage illegal behavior. Virtually all pro-lifers condemn violence in the strongest possible terms, yet they are still considered violent and dangerous by the mainstream media.

There is no justification for violent protests, whether the protesters are on the right or on the left. The difference between the two ideologies is that the right understands this, while the left does not.

The left = Do as I say, not as I do.

Nothing new.

Thank's Danny,

Skye has been a friend of mine for a long time.

And most of the commenters on my blog, we are all friends, and sort of like family, and what happened to Skye is utter evil.

I havent met Skye in person yet but, we correspond through email, but my other friend Jennifer has, I went with Jennifer last year to the Huge Gathering of Eagles Rally to Protect The Viet Nam Memorial and I know what kind of crowd she was up against. Nasty ass people. Just nasty.

Fortunately there were too many Police around in D.C. to let those idiots do any harm, not to mention we were a wall around the Viet Nam Memorial and they couldnt touch us.

Well Jennifer is Retired US Navy, and she usually accompanies Skye on these events because they both live in PA. The one time she didnt look what happened.

Well Jennifer intends to be there at this next rally , it happens every Saturday in Philly, and I dont think anyone will get away with touching Skye with Jennifer around.

Jenn, is a lovely person, she met me at my motel in D.C. and escorted me to the rally because I had no clue where I was going I had never been to D.C. Before, but she knew what to do and where to go.

But what happened to Skye really pisses me off.

My Friend Mike, from Mike's America is going to do a really comrehensive post with a Q&A with Skye about this whole event.

When he does I will move my post back up to the top and include a crosspost from Mike and a link.

Stay Tuned for more of this this utter evil idiots supposed Peace Protesters.

I will add updates as I find available.

Thank You :-)

Marie

Don't you think you are hypocritical when you point your finger at those who are trying to save babies from being murdered at babykilling abortion mills and then claim to have the higher ground. What is inexcusable is your bashing of pro-lifers trying to save the lives of innocent children.

Rev. Don Spitz, I don't think Daniel was being hypocritical, his point was that the perception of abortion clinic bombers is that they are destructive and bad, while people who incite violence at peace rallies are somehow good. Either both should be considered bad or good to be fair, but that is not the case.

That being said, I cannot see how being destructive is ever a good way to show support for something. I am very pro-life, but people who bomb clinics quite frankly anger me because two wrongs do not make a right.

They will know we are Christians by our love, not by our violence.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
