There’s nothing like watching a Union thug beat a Nikki Haley piñata to make you ask a simple question: why is it OK? Or, to be a bit more direct: would it be OK if someone made a Barack Obama piñata and beat it with a stick?
I’m not saying that the right has been innocent in their treatment of liberals, but… well, we are. Seriously. There’s no comparison. Between the union thugs assaulting people who disagree with them to the Occupiers who attack cops and destroy private property, the left seems to have trouble containing the most violent of their ranks.
In comparison, the Tea Party events were peaceful, well-organized, and cooperative with law enforcement. I’ve been able to come across a couple of stories of TPers getting arrested (most notably when a group decided to Occupy the Hart Office Building in Washington DC), but most of the events have been peaceful. Sure, there’ve been accusations of people spitting on Congressmen and calling them names, and one CNN producer totally heard a Tea Partier use the F-word once, maybe, possibly…. but in comparison to the Occupy Twits? They’re freakin’ boy scouts.
The point being that equivocation only serves its purpose when there’s something to equivocate, and there’s nothing here to equivocate. I’ll go ahead and say it: the AFL/CIO idiot who made a Nikki Haley piñata was just as wrong as someone who’d make a Barack Obama piñata. They’re both idiots and should both be treated accordingly.
