    This diary comes too close to advocating retaliatory violence for my taste.

    There are better ways to deal with the WBC cultist thugs.

    •  ah NO ... where does it come close? (1+ / 0-)

      if you are talking about the cane .. I have to walk with a cane now (due to a car accident I also can't stand long - hence the folding chair) .... it is actually all about peace ... to stand as a buffer between the mourners and the WBC

      You can't stand as a buffer if you are violent - and I am absolutely not suggesting or advocating violence.  I'm sorry you read it that way.

      Giving them no space to stand is a NON-Violent answer to them and it has been done at other funerals like Elizabeth Edwards

      •  I completely sympathize. (0+ / 0-)

        Those evil cultists protested at the funeral of a fallen Marine at my own church in Maryland, leading to the case that went to the Supreme Court.

        However, you said this:

        This is a powder keg ready to explode.  There will be police officers charged with keeping order who walked inside that school and saw the carnage, who knew those families, those children.  

        There will be friends and families, nerves raw, grief hot, knowing that certain presents under the Christmas tree will never be opened.

        As I said, that comes too close to advocating retaliatory violence, in my opinion.

        Yeah, you didn't really say it, but you said it.

        And much as I basically agree with you, violence is not the answer, especially not now.

          It was to capture the mood of what is happening and what could happen if there ISN'T a buffer there.

          I guess I should have made that more clear.

          There is nothing in that advocating violence.  Clytemnestra was pretty accurately describing the situation.

          Fact is nerves are VERY raw right now in the whole Greater Danbury Area.  

          Fact is, regardless of politics people are fucking pissed that these vile pieces of shit are coming here.  Our mayor in Danbury, who is a republican (ran for LT governor a few years back) has called for restraint.  Friends who I have sparred with verbally for years over politics all are joining to stop WBC.  I'm talking friends from Occupy Danbury, people who worked for Democratic politicians getting together with bikers, right wingers and republicans.  

          This has completely shocked the whole area.  Shit like this DOES NOT HAPPEN here.  Newtown is an idyllic small town most famously known for the flagpole in the middle of Main Street (which I always thought was a pain in my ass every time I wanted to turn left onto Main Street) and the movie theatre in Edmond Town Hall.  You drive down Main Street and you almost expect a horse drawn buggy to pull up along side you.  Up until 20 years ago it was mostly farms.  Sandy Hook is a smaller subset of Newtown.  So you can imagine how frayed the nerves of the local people are.  The first responders who came to the scene were shocked and horrified beyond disbelief most likely because they knew them.  

          So you can only imagine what it's like to have these rat fucks come here after the peace has already been shattered.

          Frankly I think Clytemnestra has been more than restrained.
