    this is getting weird on some comments when the shit starts coming down people run scared and want to pick the side that does not get them in trouble or looks bad to the ruling class.

        long ago. I was in Grant Park in 1968. I deeply regret the damage we inflicted on the Democratic Party and the left in the United States.

        I'm not proud that I helped elect Nixon. I was too immature to see it then. I was another narcissistic adolescent with anger control issues. Fortunately, one can live long enough to achieve a different perspective. I've learned a lot in the fifty years since then.

          that's not what this story is about.

          This is about armed assaults on anybody who happened to be in the way of a group of armed thugs.

        •  you claim to have been in Grant park in 68... (0+ / 0-)

          ...and yout you still take the authoritarian lne,  Still support cops busting heads.  You didn't learn anything anything in 68 except maybe how to fall in line.  And the cops in 68 got the response they wanted and nixon was elected and you think it is any different now.

          We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.

      was about her observation that on the ground organizing accomplishes more real change than blogging in the echo chamber of the the progressive blogoshere.  And the process is a day by day, inch by inch struggle (slog).  That's my recollection at least.

    •  The quote is about the hard work of grassroots (0+ / 0-)

      organizing, which is the only way to bring about long-term change.

      These violent tactics accomplish nothing other than to tarnish the cause which the perpetrators claim they support. I suspect they are narcissistic adolescents who have not learned impulse control.

      They must be so brave to attack unarmed people with hammers and baseball bats. Give me a break!
