The hyperbole of politics is fraught with the language of war: "war chest; battle ground; faction; war room; enemies list; If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun; etc.
And despite the fact that history proves Anarchists & Leftists are frequent perpetrators of violence, destruction & presidential assassinations, the Lefties still demagogue the faux spectre of 'right wingnut radicals' as the greatest threat the world has ever known, blah, blah blah.
So, it comes as no surprise that our friends over at the oddly named 'Think Progress' have messed themselves over the above Missouri billboard which enumerates several bullet points for non-violent political actions - a revolution, as it were, to wrest power from a corrupt gub'mint and return it to the people. Plus, some big red hyperbole at the bottom.
I live thirty minutes from this bill board, but have never seen it in person, have never spoken to any neighbor about it, and only know of its existence from all the smoke blowing in from Left field.
No. We won't join you in any violence.
This questionable exercise of expensive free speech out on I-70 is most certainly a calculation for effect - that mostly goes unnoticed.
Kinda like this one, in the same place, from several months ago.
You know, of course, this means war! - Bugs Bunny
