Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 23, 2020

In the last two weeks, acts of vandalism were reported at Bloomberg offices in Toledo, Ohio; Youngstown, Ohio; Knoxville, Tenn.; Ann Arbor, Mich., and Flint, Mich. In those cases, words like "oligarch" and "corporate pig" were left on posters or in spray paint; the Salt Lake City vandals just broke windows, Sant Marr said. On Friday, after the Knoxville incident, Bloomberg's campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, issued a statement: "We don't know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters," Sheekey said.

"worse than Trump."

Imagine being this much of a drama queen. Please tell me how spray paint and broken windows that you can't even tie to Sanders compares to any of the following:

Aug. 19, 2015: In Boston, after he and his brother beat a sleeping homeless man of Mexican descent with a metal pole, Steven Leader, 30, told police "Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported."

June 3, 2016: After 54-year-old Henry Slapnik attacked his African-American neighbors with a knife in Cleveland, he told police "Donald Trump will fix them because they are scared of Donald Trump."

Aug. 16, 2016: In Olympia, Washington, 32-year-old Daniel Rowe attacked a white woman and a black man with a knife after seeing them kiss on a popular street. When police arrived on the scene, Rowe professed to being "a white supremacist" and said "he planned on heading down to the next Donald Trump rally and stomping out more of the Black Lives Matter group."

" Oct. 13, 2016: After the FBI arrested three white Kansas men for plotting to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, where many Somali immigrants lived, one of the men's attorneys insisted to a federal judge that the plot was "self-defensive" because the three men believed "that if Donald Trump won the election, President Obama would not recognize the validity of those results, that he would declare martial law, and that at that point militias all over the country would have to step in."

Or how about

Nov. 10, 2016: A 23-year-old man from High Springs, Florida, allegedly assaulted an unsuspecting Hispanic man who was cleaning a parking lot outside of a local food store. "[H]e was suddenly struck in the back of the head," a police report said of the victim. "[The victim] asked the suspect why he hit him, to which the suspect replied, 'This is for Donald Trump.' The suspect then grabbed [the victim] by the jacket and proceeded to strike him several more times," according to the report. Surveillance video of the incident "completely corroborated [the victim's] account of events," police said.

Nov. 12, 2016: In Grand Rapids, Michigan, while attacking a cab driver from East Africa, 23-year-old Jacob Holtzlander shouted racial epithets and repeatedly yelled the word, "Trump," according to law enforcement records.

Late October 2018: Over the course of a week, Florida man Cesar Sayoc allegedly mailed at least 15 potential bombs to prominent critics of Trump and members of the media. Sayoc had been living in a van plastered with pro-Trump stickers, and he had posted several pro-Trump messages on social media.

And then there's

Jan. 22, 2019: David Boileau of Holiday, Florida, was arrested by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office for allegedly burglarizing an Iraqi family's home and "going through" their mailbox, according to a police report. After officers arrived at the home, Boileau "made several statements of his dislike for people of Middle Eastern descent," the report said. "He also stated if he doesn't get rid of them, Trump will handle it." The police report noted that a day before, Boileau threw screws at a vehicle outside the family's house.

April 5, 2019: The FBI arrested a 55-year-old man from upstate New York for allegedly threatening to kill Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., one of the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress. She is an outspoken critic of Trump, and Trump has frequently launched public attacks against her and three other female lawmakers of color. Two weeks before his arrest, Patrick Carlineo Jr. allegedly called Omar's office in Washington labeling the congresswoman a "terrorist" and declaring: "I'll put a bullet in her ---- skull." When an FBI agent then traced the call to Carlineo and interviewed him, Carlineo "stated that he was a patriot, that he loves the President, and that he hates radical Muslims in our government," according to the FBI agent's summary of the interview.

April 18, 2019: The FBI arrested John Joseph Kless of Tamarac, Florida, for calling the Washington offices of three prominent Democrats and threatening to kill each of them. At his home, authorities found a loaded handgun in a backpack, an AR-15 rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. In later pleading guilty to one charge of transmitting threats over state lines, Kless admitted that in a threatening voicemail targeting Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., he stated: "You won't ---- tell Americans what to say, and you definitely don't tell our president, Donald Trump, what to say."

But please, do carry on saying some random act of vandalism that you can't even tie to Sanders is "worse than Trump."

Good god, you're insane.

From The Article

On Friday, after the Knoxville incident, Bloomberg's campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, issued a statement that implicated, without evidence, supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"We don't know who is responsible for this vandalism, but we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters," Sheekey said,


It was predicted Bloomberg would attack Sanders after Nevada. Looks like he's started.

He evens has BruceBanner spreading his lies on the DR with headlines like, "Bloomberg Campaign Offices Attacked by Sanders' Vandals"

Even though no such proof exists.

Well, if you don't know, why are you making the assumption that these must be Sanders supporter? I mean, sure, "we do know it echoes language from the Sanders campaign and its supporters," but it's best not to rush to judgement without the facts. The vandals could be anybody, including Trump or Bloomberg supporters, trying to cause trouble by using language that "echoes" the Sanders campaign.

These vandals should be caught and prosecuted because their actions are an act of political intimidation that is completely unacceptable in our society, but vandalism against empty buildings in the middle of the night is not the same thing as people being physically assaulted.

Acts of vandalism have happened to many campaigns in the past. Actual violence was worse in 2016 than in any election I could recall. I hope 2020 is not a repeat.

It's one thing to say you don't like Bernie. His personality, his politics, whatever. But to say that any time a rock goes through a window it's his fault is ludicrous, perhaps even worse than saying he needs to make a statement every time someone who likes him is mean on the internet.

Why should a political rally be interrupted by interlopers who want nothing more than shut down the political speech??

Why should a political rally be interrupted by interlopers who want nothing more than shut down the political speech?

The First Amendment allows people to engage in political speech even in places their speech is obnoxious.

Protesters at political rallies almost never end up silencing the speaker. Instead they fire up the crowd.

As someone in San Jose at the Trump rally I saw first hand violence against fellow Trump supporters, and many here on this website cheered.

When people commit violence against others who are practicing their rights to hear political speech, its an a front of the true meaning of the first amendment.

Bernie Sanders' Seattle campaign headquarters vandalized
By - Associated Press - Sunday, February 23, 2020

SEATTLE " Police are investigating after someone threw a large rock through a glass door at Bernie Sanders Seattle presidential campaign headquarters.

Sanders state field director, Shaun Scott, said staffers don't know who used the rock to break the glass in the door Friday night. No one was hurt in the vandalism incident, and campaign workers swept up the pieces and patched the door with plywood.
