Completely pathetic. I mean, just truly, deeply, contemptibly sad. Only an absolute slack-jawed moron could so thoroughly delight in such wanton destruction of a virtual property because of ideological differences.
I'm so utterly sick of there being not the teensiest wee shred of "live and let live" among the worst elements of the rightwing—they've got to silence and destroy everything and anyone who disagrees with them. They live to ruin and demolish and spoil—and if anyone different than them has the temerity to be having fun or feeling good for one bloody second, the sorry blighters can't resist swooping in to piss all over the parade, then revel in their own success. Bullies—all of them.
I happen to agree that it is childish and stupid to trash a campaign headquarters located in a virtual world. Of course, I think vandalizing real world stuff is infinitely worse.
Maybe I just remember things better than lefties do. I seem to recall a number of violent incidents perpetrated by the left against the George W. Bush campaign in 2004.
1. Protesters stormed a Bush-Cheney headquarters in Orlando, defacing posters and dumping protest letters.
2. Shots were fired into a Knoxville, Tennessee Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters, shattering glass and damaging a door.
3. Three computers were stolen when people broke into the Washington state Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters.
SS makes the sort of statement I hear a lot from lefties: people on the right are oh, so much more hateful than people on the left. I have to wonder if we are really inhabiting the same planet anymore when I get e-mail from Echidne of the Snakes saying that conservatives are more hateful (without bothering to condemn hate speech from the left) and now this take by SS on fantasy game vandalism.
