There has been a lot of news made out of recent violent outrages by fringe individuals against Members of Congress (and families) who voted for the Health Care Reform bill. Many news outlets are making this out to be something new and the work of mainstream Republican activist.
However as evidenced by the list below violent acts against the opposition by fringe individuals and fringe group organizations is nothing new. These are acts by individuals and fringe groups and neither the left or the right should be grouped together as being responsible for these illegal and violent acts.
Rounds Out Blog has a listing of 55 bombings and vandalism and other acts of violence AGAINST THE MILITARY ALONE!!!
between 2003 and 2008.
These DO NOT INCLUDE the violence against George Bush and other Republicans.
They really need to check themselves before accusing the right of violence.
Righteous indignation only works for the righteous. Not the criminally insane left wing radicals.
