Those Ignorant of History...

In a fact deficient article entitled "Mike Vanderboegh asks Americans to vandalize Democratic party offices everywhere." the author claims that,
Free speech is one thing, but when you call for a campaign of organized vandalism against a political party and there are some people at various locations within the USA who are acting on that suggestion (five broken windows counted at Dem party offices nationwide this week) , shouldn't law enforcement get interested in you? Talk is one thing, but talk that requests ACTION is something else.

I recall a certain event in Germany in the 1930s that helped usher in the rule of the Nazi party: they called it Kristalnacht.
Kristallnacht was one name given to the vandalism committed by National Socialist Party supporters on the night of November 9 to 10, 1938. This was over five years after Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor on January 30, 1933. It did not help "usher in the rule" of the Nazis; it was an act of the ruling party directed against those it intended to destroy.

The "Window War" is not even close to being a Kristalnacht. The idiots claiming it is are grasping at fact-deprived straws: When the Democrats send Acorn (or its successor) to kick down doors, break windows and arrest people then they will have a historical parallel.

And those screaming about it now will, most likely, be cheering.
