So, let’s talk about how this over-enthusiastic Obama vandal messed up his message.

Because there are, oh, so many ways. Going down the list:

  • It is stupid to vandalize cars (keyed, seats slashed, messages scratched in hoods).
  • It is even stupider to vandalize cars in order to send a political message.
  • It is blindingly stupid to vandalize cars and sign your work with the name of your favored candidate.
  • It is transcendentally stupid to do all of this on somebody that you don’t even know.
  • That’s because you might target somebody who is actually voting for Obama.
  • That person may just be living with his Romney-supporting in-laws*.
  • And that person may have to live with his in-laws because THE ECONOMY SUCKS and he can’t find a job.
  • Getting back to the first idiot: I don’t know that the guy also stole a GPS unit from another car nearby, but judging from the previous events in this Carnival Of Stupidity it’s a reasonable bet to make.
  • And finally: the fool did not wear gloves.

On behalf of the Republican party and the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, I would like to NOT say ‘thank you’ to whoever did this.  That would imply that we approve of people acting like half-savage man-children, which we most certainly do not.

    This is terrorism. The wider purpose of terrorism is to intimidate a population beyond the target of the terrorist act.

    How many people will hesitate to show their political views (bumper stickers, yard signs) because they fear being attacked? Mission accomplished.

    Stupid, no. Evil, yes.

    A yard sign posted above a Burmese tiger trap might just work. As to bumper stickers, I use removable ones placed in my windows while driving. A sad state of affairs, but a necessary precaution in Karlifornia.

    These sorts of tactics have arguably backfired in Wisconsin and probably helped seal victory for Gov. Scott Walker in the recent recall election. They may also backfire by helping Romney in Wisconsin on November 6th. The good people in Wisconsin are sick of the childish antics of the Left over the past 2 years.

    So both evil and stupid.

    These are violent sub-intellectual bigots from the violent cult we, for unknown reasons politely refer to as the left…stop talking about them as if they are anything more…

  • Art says:

    It is also stupid, because the owner of the vehicle, (who never would have voted for Obama anyway), is now PO’d. He most likely will be driving around exhibiting the vandalism. Giving the undecided an object lesson on the kind of people he/she is considering supporting.

    I personally would park the car in a very public place so everyone would see what kind of people support the Democrats.

  • Laka says:

    Let’s just say muddled thinking and Obama voting go together.

  • Diggs says:

    “half-savage man-children”. Please tell me how you know it was a muslim that did this.

    This will not end until the Left’s political vandals [a major subset of the whole] pay a personal price for the acts.

    1. The police have no intention of conducting serious investigations leading to arrests in Leftist attacks.

    2. Prosecutors have no intention of prosecuting anyone arrested for this, except for possibly misdemeanors and petty offenses for some small number of arrested.

    3. Judges have no interest in sentencing the rare individual convicted to anything more than a small fine and probation.

    4. Among the Left; being arrested for vandalizing and assaulting anyone who disagrees with them is a signal mark of honor. There is no downside in vandalism and assault, and the chance of fame and success among their peers.

    With no legal recourse to defend from vandalism and assault, non-Leftists are on their own. Until the Leftists involved start being found after suffering some personal consequences of their acts; this will continue and get worse.

    And items 1-4 will not apply to anyone who takes action against the Left. The full force of the legal system will be mobilized against those who take such action. The only question is where the tipping point will be to make the risk worth it. Because that is where we are going.

  • I live in liberal SF Bay Area and decided to put a Romney sticker on my truck (magnet actually – bought 2 thinking one wouldn’t last until November). Even my conservative friends commented this was risky, but I felt it was time to come out of the closet. The vehicle sits all day unattended at a park-and-ride, but so far no damage… sort of refreshing. Maybe that closet was a lot more crowded that everyone thought.

    The term comes from the bell curve distribution of IQ. The average IQ and the most common score is 100 most of the population is within one standard deviation of the average. IQs that are more than one standard deviation from the average are out on the skinny tails of the bell shaped curve. When the bell shaped curve is plotted out, scores that are above the average are drawn on the right hand side and scores that are below average are on the left.

    Don’t dare put a bumper sticker on my car here in Seattle. Almost surefire way to get vandalized. One other side comment: I am not seeing very many Obama bumper stickers this year. They were everywhere in 2008. This year, not so much. Lawn signs are just as scarce. Enthusiasm for Obama is nowhere near the level it was the first time. He’ll still carry the state because there are enough supporters in Seattle to overcome the rest of the state. If it’s close, King County (Seattle area) will manufacture enough votes to put him over the top (They have years of practice in the Elections Office).

  • Doc Holliday says:

    Sticker always on my truck, I will not change who I am because certain people continue to define lower who they are.

  • acat says:

    @Mark .. umm, no, but I *like* that theory.

    So, something else to blame the bloody frogs for.

  • Rob Crawford says:

    I understand it’s illegal to put out yard signs with Republican candidates in some areas. Apparently it’s considered “hunting with bait”.

    IMHO, urbandictionary.com needs to link to this story as its prime example for its definition of EPIC FAIL.
