Patriotism in action.

  1. A) Idiots. Bloody huge idiots. Morons. Fools.

    B) That is not dissent. What I’m in the middle of writing right now, and will be up for view here in under an hour, is dissent. (And some fuel for thought for that thing you keep emailing me about, Bob.) What you linked to is base hooliganism performed by people who pretend they are making a political statement in order to justify it within themselves.

  2. I agree with Off Colfax: I don’t see how stretching a case of rather offensive vandalism can be construed as political dissent. The property destruction is simple vandalism. The use of the highly charged swastika is what makes it offensive. Within the context of political speech and true dissent, I would say using the swastika is totally legitimate, but not in this case of vandalism.
