In a post that calls participants in the March for Science “spoiled brats,” “full-time complainers,” and “crybullies,” David Klinghoffer stopped just short of predicting that the March would become a riot:
The March for Science website includes a “Statement on Peaceful Assembly and Nonviolence,” …Why the need for a statement that you don’t “condone violence” if you’re not concerned that participants in your event will get violent?…
The crybullies, as [Daniel Greenfield] calls them, specialize in anger. Like small children throwing fits, they are liable to lash out physically, as recent incidents on college campuses have shown.
If violence occurs on April 22 on the National Mall, or hundreds of satellite protests elsewhere, that’s where it will come from.
I witnessed the rage myself, and it wasn’t pretty. [Warning: this gets pretty graphic below the fold]
I was among the lucky ones who escaped unscathed, but I won’t forget the horrors I witnessed.
