In Praise of Thuggery


The Daily Kos has a profile of Brett Kimberlin Lord Voldemort posted. (H/T, Darth Chipmunk) It contains these words:

Kimberlin has been very effective at countering the right-wing hate spewing machine. Robert Stacey McCain (no relation but just as fascist) decided to attack him for his Activism with children for Justice. Lets just say Robert Stacey McCain is on the run these days. Erick Erickson of CNN fame got a nice little knock on the door. Seth Allen get the message as well. This is what Activists do, shutting down hate speech one individual at a time. If Brett Kimberlin can make a difference by himself, we all can.

Are the Kossacks so bought into the “by any means necessary” that they condone, even praise, criminal thuggery so long as it’s aimed toward the Right?

UPDATE—Matt Ross points out in the comments below that almost all of the commenters responding to the Diary I’ve linked to at The Daily Kos are flagging this as a troll. Could be. If so, it violates kos’s published rules for Diaries, specifically, Rules 15 and 16:

15. Diaries which contain hateful or defamatory writing are prohibited.
16. Diaries which are deliberately designed to inflame are prohibited.

So why isn’t it either prominently marked as suspicious or pulled down?
