… only smellier and more pathetic.

This happened last week. Warning: gross graphics.

After left-wing activists organizing a human feces or “poop party” to intimidate FCC Chairman Ajit Pai were reported to authorities by a conservative talk show host, she found herself under relentless attack.

Stacy Washington

In an exclusive interview with Media Equalizer, talk host Stacy Washington revealed that she directed her fans to report a leftist page called “New Years Rave at Ajit Pai’s House”.

The group event was created by an individual named Andrew Kober and meant to galvanize leftists to meet at Pai’s house between 10pm and 3am on Dec. 31. (…)

Given this clear threat to Pai’s family and home, Washington felt it necessary to inform followers and law enforcement.

Ajit Pai

In retaliation, they directed their online army to write negative reviews on Washington’s Facebook page, “Stacy on the Right Show,” where dozens immediately left 1-star show reviews and vile personal smears. (…)

It’s very important to make it clear that Washington is being subjected to such vitriolic behavior from liberals because she took issue with the group wanting to charge Pai’s home and put his family in harm’s way.

Emphasis mine. The reason for the “rave” at Pai’s house? The repeal of the FCC’s Net Neutrality rule.

Commenting on this situation, a friend observed that “Leftists don’t like being exposed for returning to their night rider KKK roots.” A searing assessment that is, but I don’t think that these foot-soldiers for Leftism have the slightest bit of self-awareness or historical perspective about this proposed action against a man’s home or about harassing brown-skinned Americans for what they believe. If they did, outside of the psychopaths, they wouldn’t be participating. Then again, the group is probably composed of nothing but psychopaths. 12,000 of them.

And psychopaths don’t like being exposed. Full stop.

Were they not in Hell, old-school night-riders – who burned, bombed, raped, and lynched — would be laughing their hoods off at these Night-Poopers/One-Star Reviewers. But the latter are the spiritual and political children of the old ones. Tactics change, but the spirit of terrorism does not.

Neither does the spirit of the Democrat Party, apparently.

And it’s not outside the realm of possibility that these new-school night-riders have attracted not a few of the old-school types who may be considering doing more than fertilizing the FCC chairman’s lawn.

Because that’s what happens with mobs; they escalate in tactics – or devolve, whichever way one wants to look at it.

Terrorists must be exposed; to hear them squeal, sure. But also to be ready for them.

and actually puts out the McChrystal stuff in full and in context:

As with the leak of McChrystal’s report, observers would do well to exhibit a bit more skepticism and ask a few more questions, chief among them being “Who benefits from these leaks and ugly insinuations?” Clearly it’s not McChrystal: the media are calling for his head on a platter. He’s being treated every bit as badly as David Petraeus was during the Surge, but for the opposite reason: where Petraeus was called a coward and traitor for not speaking truthiness to the American people, McChrystal is being told he has no business speaking truth in public. The real irony here is that neither man did what he was accused of but the Left attacked these men anyway for failing to support their preferred narrative.

Any source who chooses to spread paranoid, unsubstantiated, third hand rumors about what McChrystal or Obama are rumored to have said when transcripts of the General’s speech and Q&A session are easily available should be dismissed out of hand.

The ratings seem to suggest that this is taking place. That would also explain the FCC’s move. Jeff Jarvis is worried:

And there is the greatest myth embedded within the FTC’s rules: that the government can and should sanitize the internet for our protection. The internet is the world and the world is messy and I don’t want anyone – not the government, not a newspaper editor – to clean it up for me, for I fear what will go out in the garbage: namely, my rights.

What I now truly dread is that the FTC is holding hearings about journalism on Dec. 1 and 2. As Star-Ledger editor Jim Willse (full disclosure: he hired me a few times) said in my Guardian podcast last month (full disclosure: I work for the Guardian): the words, “we’re from the government, we’re here to help,” should be met with trepidation.

Hey nothing to worry about, just because these guys admire Chavez it doesn’t mean we will see stuff like this.
