Obviously, the assault was wrong, and thats exactly what it was, an assault. But what does it mean? It means this: The left wing has spent the last 20 years provoking a certain type of Americans. Typically, they are provoking middle class, mostly white, mostly rural, Christian, American conservatives. In our fanatically PC society, a few targets have been typically safe for poking at: Christians, whites, conservatives. As my old sociology professor said "White Christians are the generic race. They lack a unique race or ethnicity, they are the 'default setting' of American, thus, cannot be a protected group". Yeah, he truly believed that. So the years of provocation have brewed to this. It's a dangerous time in our country. People are being pushed to their mental edge by constant floods of stress, both financial and social. Diversity is ok in some ways, but forced tolerance is not. And that is what the left is doing. They want to force tolerance of all and any kind of provocation of that group I described above. Don't dare insult Muslims, or you'll be fired. But Christians? Have at it. Don't dare insult blacks, or you'll be fired, sued, prosecuted, etc. But whites? BET does it daily. Don't dare insult Islam, or you'll be scolded....or killed. So, the day has come when a MoveOn protester parades down the middle of a crowd of Paul supporters and is assaulted. Is it right? Hell no. Is it expected? Well, until recently no. But now? We all need to be cautious about how much we are provoking each other. We are quickly spiraling into behaving like a 3rd world sh** hole nation.
