How savage? - today's edition

Eric Holder takes exception to Mrs. Food Desert's prescription for political engagement:

Former Attorney General Eric Holder says he thinks former first lady Michelle Obama was wrong in her signature line: "When they go low, we go high." 
Campaigning for Democrats in Georgia, Holder told an audience, "When they go low, we kick them." 
"Michelle [Obama] always says ‘When they go low, we go high,'" Holder told the crowd. "No. No. When they go low, we kick them."
The comment drew applause, cheers and chants of "fight" from the crowd supporting Stacey Abrams for Georgia governor and several other Democratic candidates. He continued, though, saying he did not want people to actually kick Republicans. 
But some Freedom-Haters do indeed interpret that exhortation literally:

 The male feminist featured in a viral video roundhouse kicking a woman for having the audacity to hold pro-life views was arrested by Toronto police on Saturday.
Jordan Hunt, 26, has been charged with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief under $5,000, says a Toronto Police news release.
Hunt is seen in a viral video clip viciously assaulting pro-life leader Marie-Claire Bissonnette on September 30 after she confronted him for allegedly vandalizing pro-life signs. Bissonnette has since asked the public to pray for Hunt since he is "also loved by the Father."
The hair salon where he worked has fired him.

And a former UN ambassador surely has some mom feelings to deal with here:

Susan Rice’s Republican son was assaulted during a pro-Brett Kavanaugh rally at Stanford University on Tuesday and is pressing charges against the student who allegedly “hit him” and “forcefully pushed him back.” 
“She got in my face and proceeded to hit me in the chest area and push me back forcefully,” John David Rice-Cameron, president of the Stanford College Republicans, told the Stanford Daily. “Nobody should be assaulted on campus, under any circumstances.”
Melinda Hernandez, a sophomore at the University, was arrested on battery charges. 
SCR wrote about the incident on its Facebook page. 
“Today, SCR experienced the violent and totalitarian behavior of the unhinged Stanford left. During a 'Change My Mind' tabling event regarding the presumption of innocence and the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, SCR's President was assaulted by Melinda Hernandez. A sophomore at Stanford, Hernandez approached our President, hit him in chest and forcefully pushed him back. (Hernandez is shown in the striped top below).
Well, peace, love, tofu and sprouts to you people, too.


  1. Lock em up! The crazies were chanting 'lock her up' in reference to Die Fie at the despicable Trump's recent rally. Makes you wonder how much of this crap is because of the crash tone set by Trump through the long years with little dignity on display during his nearly 2 years long foray into the chaos he seems to thrive on.

  2. No, the Left has been on its present course at least 50 years.

  3. Kind of a long gap in protests since the civil rights and anti war protests with little in between as far as protest rallies and marches unless you count the TP.

  4. I'm thinking of the takeover of the administration offices at Columbia, the riots outside the DNC convention in Chicago, the October 1969 Days of Rage, feminism, the Stonewall Inn riot, Earth Day, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Michael Harrington forming the Democratic Socialists of America, the nuclear-freeze movement, the support for the FSLN and FMLN, Ted Kennedy's evil takedown of Robert Bork.

    1. It makes one shiver with revulsion to recall all those indoctrinated ABC-Stewart elementary students and their thuggish Earth Day daisy-plantings...

      Oh the horror...the HORROR...

  5. The war's been on for some time. Normal people are just now waking up to that fact.

  6. Very effective tactics for ending segregation and the draft.

  7. Very effective for the suffragette movement a century ago too.
