How long before somebody gets killed by an enraged leftist? Let’s start a pool. I’ll be the bookie (the only sure way to make money).
Odds on a killing in the next six months, 7 to 1 against; from six months to a year, 4 to 1; after a year 2 to 1. Get your bets in early; these odds might tighten.
Some friends of mine, Roy Spencer and John Christy, were shot at. Both men are bona fide atmospheric scientists, men who has actually studied and contributed greatly to their field, and men who express skepticism that global-warming-of-doom will kill us all unless we put the government in charge of all aspects of our lives.
A total of seven shots were fired into our National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) building here at [the University of Alabama Huntsville] over the weekend.
All bullets hit the 4th floor, which is where John Christy’s office is (my office is in another part of the building).
Given that this was Earth Day weekend, with a March for Science passing right past our building on Saturday afternoon, I think this is more than coincidence.
The UAH police, with lickety split speed, classified the violence as a “random shooting.”
The bullets must have just showed up out of nowhere.
So the violent folks at People’s Action—why do communists always say their violence is done in the name of the people?—attacked the Heritage Foundation offices. Stormed right on in.
Media accounts call the violent actors “protesters”. The proper word is, of course, thugs, though violent rabble would do as well. The media does not use proper labels because, as everybody knows, the media is delighted by the attacks.
Why did these violent individuals storm a think tank? In their own fantastical words, “We’re shutting it down at @Heritage because it continues to be @realDonaldTrump’s think tank. #RiseUp2017 #Budget4ThePeople”
Well, what more justification is needed than in expressing (tepid) supporting for a sitting President? Off with their heads, amirite?
Does not Politico have a prime-time article entitled “100 days of Democratic rage“? Smiling at the increase in irrational tantrums, violence, and threatened violence across these once United States, Politico says there is a “vibrant culture of resistance on the left”. Vibrant.
We have already seen there exists a well ensconced culture of violence on university and college campuses, now places of strict and unthinking intolerance. Just as a for-example, students, many with those dead-alive eyes familiar from social media posts, attacked author Charles Murray and a professor at Middlebury College. The professor was sent to the hospital.
The media sighed a slight sigh and then hinted the woman with Murray had it coming because, said the Washington Post, the Southern Poverty Law Center “considers Murray a white nationalist who uses ‘racist pseudoscience…'”

Bonus! Some extra links and comments not found in the Stream article.
Headline “Intimidation Is the New Normal on Campus: From now on, any speaker who arouses a protest is at risk of a beating“. This is from the Chronicle of Higher Education, folks.
…Berkeley students who thought it was morally permissible to use violence to stop a lecture from taking place. As one student wrote afterward, “Violence helped ensure the safety of students.” Another asked, “When the nonviolent tactics [for stopping the talk] have been exhausted — what is left?
…for we are witnessing the emergence of a dangerous new norm for responding to speakers who challenge campus orthodoxy. Anyone offended by the speaker can put out a call on Facebook to bring together students and locals, including “antifa” (antifascist) and black-bloc activists who explicitly endorse the use of violence against racists and fascists. Because of flagrant “concept creep,” however, almost anyone who is politically right of center can be labeled a racist or a fascist.
We are all Nazis now.
Headline Antifa Shutting Down Portland’s Parade Of Roses Because REPUBLICANS Were Marching. Or, We’re All Nazis Now.
We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag and push those people out as we will not give one inch to groups who espouse hatred toward lgbt, immigrants, people of color or others…
Headline Cornell Professor called rape apologist. No, not me. I was fired before that could happen.
Update NYT on Berkeley: Conservatives are “eagerly throwing themselves into volatile situations”. And just why are these situations volatile, then Finnigan?
Campus creeps in a nutshell: "your words are the same as violence, our violence is the same as words."
