Long history of far right thuggery

Tuesday October 30, 2012

George Beebe recently wrote a letter to the editor alleging that those on the right do not steal political signs, that those on the left do. OK. I thought I might bring up a few of the political activities that the right has engaged in over the past four years.

Killing a guard at the DC Holocaust Museum, 2009; spitting on and launching racial slurs at a congressman, 2010; flying a plane into an IRS building, 2010; shooting at Obama campaign office, 2012; throwing Democratic voters’ registration forms in garbage, 2012.

But I suppose they didn’t steal poor Mr. Beebe’s Scott Brown signs.
