Campus Violence

David Horowitz is the latest target of a pie attack. Last week it was William Kristol, of The Weekly Standard, assaulted during a speech at Earlham College

Just so we're clear about this with our lefty friends who seem to be increasingly attracted to this form of "expression" - when you're bereft of reasoned, logical arguments against speech with which you disagree, it's a sign that you don't know what you're talking about. There is no need to drive that point home through a violent attack. And if you dispute the characterization of pie throwing as "violence", I invite you to stand against a wall and allow me to the opportunity to change your mind.

Most troubling is the lax attitude universities have towards the issue - it is simply a matter of time until one of these moonbats decides to upgrade their tools of "dissent".

OK, not really, but: wouldn't you just LOVE to see somebody try that on Christopher Hitchens...?

Kate lighten up! And little Billy Kristol should stick to comedy rather than pretend he knows anything at all about "foreign affairs". The pie in the face is an age old tradition that Lucy popularized on the "I Love Lucy Show" over have a century ago.

Unfortunately these innocent activities these days carry unacceptable security risks, which is why it should stop. In Israel for example, the lawyer of Mr. Demaniuk, was viciously attacked in a similar fashion but it was not a creme pie, but rather something laced with acid that permanently scarred him. And as matters turned out, Mr. Demaniuk who was accused of "war crimes" and "crimes against humanity", was cleared by the Israeli Supreme Court of all charges against him. It turns out that he was who he says he was, an American autoworker of Ukrainian origin who was smeared by the KGB in a "disinformation" campaign that resulted in his being dragged through the courts for years and years. Simon Weissenthal got it all wrong because they swallowed the KGB line, hook, line and sinker.

Scriptures teach that "he who sows the wind, will reap a whirlwind". That is exactly what Mr. Krystol has been doing. Apart from the very real security concerns, this "pie in the face" was richly deserved. Krystol should go back to comedy because he would be useless as a politician. Most neocons are like Krystol in that regard.

They can only think with their wallets, and they have utterly no compassion or concern for their fellow man.

Bill Crystal, the comedian who starred in "Analyze This!" and William Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard, are two different people.

One would be hard-pressed to find anyone interested in politics in the United States or Canada who would not be aware of this fact.

"Before starting The Weekly Standard in 1995, Mr. Kristol led the Project for the Republican Future, where he helped shape the strategy that produced the 1994 Republican congressional victory. Prior to that, Mr. Kristol served as chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle during the Bush administration and to Secretary of Education William Bennett under President Reagan. Before coming to Washington in 1985, Mr. Kristol taught politics at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government." --http://www.weeklystandard.com/aboutus/bio_kristol.asp

They used Crisco I heard. So you see, the pie's crust was as flakey as the idiot who threw it.

The filling a rancid mush of whipped left-brain custard.

The whole episode orchestrated by an aspiring "Bugsey Marxist Malone".

It now appears that any non-lefitst speaker needs a little riposte ammo.

Perhaps a couple a hefty "fresh" cow-pies hidden just beneath the podium?

Yes! With a crust of pure unrefined pork lard.

Kind of a parallel here between this and the insurgents in Iraq. They have temper tantrums if they don't get there way if they can't oppress the population. Might have to deal with it in the same manner if they decide to esculate.

What a wonderfully typical joe green comment! A lot of verbiage based on an absolute mistaken premise.
BTW, I'm sure this question has been posed before, but why are lefties so attracted to conservative blogs?

Posted by: harold | 2005-04-09 10:52:42 AM


Every once in a while they escape there confinement, and there single celled brain cell only works in one direction, so they can't comment properly and only spew drivel.

Problem is, once these moobats escape, there really slimy and every time you think there going to slide into oblivion, they pop there bat ears up again and spew at ya.

Careful you don't get hit, that stuff is composed of highly infectious fecal matter.

Think of worms crawling out of the wet dank subterrain of political thought, after being doused by heavy rain.

In this case, the rain is the birth of democracy and reform in the middle east. It floods their world. They gasp, they crawl, until they find safe refuge on dry land.
Theyr'e attracted to the light, but they know not why.

Some will return to their dark underworld, some will remain and metamorph into bright neocon butterflies... and some will enter the two dimensional universe through encounters with Dodge truck tires.

It's nature's way.

First of all, I am not a "lefty". But many people who disassociate themselves with "neocons" believe its very important to confront fascists who propagate the Big Lie.

If you don't, worse things follow. Like Holocausts for example.

Kate is it not interesting, that not a single "neocon", NOT ONE, rose to challenge what I wrote about the Simon Weisenthal Centre and its "Big Mistake" on Demaniuk???

Instead, you crazies resort to namecalling.

Posted by: Joe Green | 2005-04-09 12:08:30 PM

LOL. I love the worms.

Let me offer this approved neocon method for dealing with an offensive pie-flinger.
1. You see the maddened zealot running toward you with his offensive pie in his left hand.
2. As he begins to extend the pie, you slip to the outside guard position and drive a powerful left hook to his solar plexus.
3. As you are in the outside guard position, his left arm is now to the left of your head. You rise up and deliver a hard right hook to the chin.
4. Before he has an opportunity to start back-pedding, you immediately throw a hard left uppercut along the centerline of the body, connecting with the chin.

Results? Nighty-night, bunny rabbit.

You retrieve the pie and it is thorougly enjoyed by all your boss macho neocon buddies.

A pie in the right hand will be dealt with at a future date. Or upon request.

(Combination: thanks to the late Jack Dempsey.)

Joe Green Spewed,

"First of all, I am not a "lefty""

Heh. How the hell does one argue that?

Only a lefty like Joe could convince himself that by spewing hatred, stereotyping and slandering all of his detractors, admitting prejudices, misinterpretting the pope's messages to condemn people with differing views, and resorting to name-calling, he is not actually a bigot.

Joe, move away from the keyboard. Castro wants his turn.
