Plans to Misbehave

Since you “plan to misbehave,” I just thought you should know that civil disobedience does not, nor has it ever, included “tossing a few bricks through windows.”

UPDATE: Aunt B (did she “bless her heart” me?!) looks forward to seeing Mr. Blue Collar Republican on the TeeVee (while making me spit-take my coffee with a joke about one of music city’s finest):

I would just like to offer two bits of advice. In the future, you might want to refrain from premeditating your ‘civil disobedience’ on the internet. It’s going to make it harder for your lawyer to argue that you’re a good person who was just caught up in the emotions of the moment. Instead, you’re going to look like the kind of dude who planned and calculated whatever it is you’re going to do.

Premeditation usually means a longer sentence.

I mean, you didn’t forget about that part, did you? Where the cops come and they arrest you and you stand before a judge who doesn’t have much sympathy for brick throwing being “civil” and you go to jail? And, hell, if you’re an interesting enough target and this is y’all’s 60s, they audit you for the next decade?

And you forget the worst part. John Rich is the music of your movement. And, don’t get me wrong, he’s a talented song-writer, but he’s not the best singer in Nashville. Is that really the voice you want over the montage of your exploits in your biopic?

Anyway, I look forward to watching your perp walk on the news.

    Mark, thanks for the fist bump. And you are right, Conservatives are “supposed to be” on the side that respects the private property of others – much like the rest of the country.

    the vandalism that happened in Colorado ended up being this guy Schwenkler who works for democratic causes. Bankrolled by Colorado Citizens Coalition. Sounds like the left is trying to make it seem that people from the right is doing this. I am sure some are, btu I bet most are more people like Schwenkler. http://www.denverpost.com/commented/ci_13203950

    That’s not “civil disobedience,” BCR, that’s civil unrest or disorder. Civil disobedience does not include expressions of anger (i.e. brick throwing, burning cars, etc.) or retaliation for violent acts committed against oneself (i.e. struggling agains being beaten during an arrest).

    And by the way, when you throw a brick, you can’t be sure where it’s going to land. Brick leaving your hand –> brick shattering a window –> brick and shards of glass landing on someone’s head. Violent, not civil.

    Mary,

    I agree with you on this. Plus Ken is forgetting that Conservatives are supposed to be the side that respects the private property of others.

    But I am going to look forward to your public criticism of those behind the next round of violence used to disrupt meetings of the WTO or the World Bank.

    Oh my, you must have missed the race riots of the 60’s, the anti-war protests of the 70’s and your liberal anti-war March this past weekend with 9 arrests. I learned how to ‘misbehave’ from liberals back in my liberal days :)
