    He was also all over DK during the Occupy movement, telling us what a bunch of DFH's we were and that the government was perfectly within their rights to use paramilitary tactics and equipment to shut down the protests.

    It seems to be an ongoing theme with lawyers - I was told by another  right wing authoritarian DK lawyer that Johnny is a tax lawyer ... not surprising. It seems that many in the field of law adopt a reverential attitude towards written laws that ignores ideas like constitutionality or appropriateness. The law is the law and it is to be worshiped.

      His comments on this situation have been ubiquitous and shitty.

      •  You may recall his previous persona here (1+ / 0-)

        He was known as barnowl (sp?) until he pissed off too many people and got a new moniker.

          I urge you to rethink your rec of what is a pretty trollish comment on the face of it. Does that comment add anything to discussion of the issue presented in the diary? No, it does not. It simply feeds flame wars and personality conflicts.

          And it would be a really good idea for you to provide evidence of your assertion of a prior ID, especially since you are citing a user name that appears to have no connection whatever to the user you and Blicero are piling on.

          •  I tried to find the relevant comment but the DKos (0+ / 0-)

            search function won't work for me, even for a relatively simple search.

            Sometime within the past year or so, in a similar discussion about Johnny Wurster and his propensity for right wing authoritarian positions and hippie punching, VClib informed me that Johnny is an exceptional tax attorney and that he has run into a lot of opposition here for his positions, so much so that he had changed  usernames, and that he was previously known as barnowl. After some of the things that Johnny wrote about OWS, I have zero qualms with "piling on" him. I disliked the man when he posted as barnowl and I continue to dislike him as Johnny Wurster. If you wish to question the accuracy of the name change I suggest you take it up with VClib.
