Decadence: Seahawks Fans Run Riot After Super Bowl Victory
dcclothesline.com ^ | 2/3/2014 | Paul Joseph Watson

Posted on 02/03/2014 11:53:26 AM PST by rktman

In another shameful reminder of how Americans care more about sports than the future of their own country, Seattle Seahawks fans reacted to their team’s Super Bowl victory by behaving like animals – lighting fires, damaging historic buildings and ripping down street signs during raucous scenes last night.

Need to turn over a city bus and light it on fire to have a really good riot.

This has nothing to do with sports victories or defeats. It’s just an excuse for those who would riot just because it was a day that ended in the letter “y”.

My bone headed lib nephew told me how he’d like to move to Seattle because it’s “so free and laid back”.

I asked him his thoughts on the Seattle City Council outlawing the words “civilian” and “brown bag lunch” because they thought they were “hurtful”? I asked “how does that fit in with being free”? He couldn’t answer. But he did leave my house earlier then I’d originally hoped!

They’ll riot over meaningless sports scores but they won’t riot when the government steals from them right in front of their face.

Any town where Amanda Knox is a heroine is liable to riot for most any reason.

BTW, I thought the game was next week. Apparently so did the Benver Droncos.

There is everywhere and at all times an element that is never far from total and unrestrained anarchy... they LOVE and PREFER disorder.

They defy the rules and laws of accepted conduct and they mock and defy efforts (official or otherwise) to maintain decorum and order.

I live in Canton, Ohio and during the annual Football Hall of Fame festivities, this element is EVERYWHERE.

They seem to come out of the woodwork and take over the environment.

It’s the reason you have to avoid all the events at all costs.

I used to live in an apartment facing the parade route and you cannot imagine the unspeakably coarse and disgusting behavior of these people... on public and private property.

They will NOT even be shamed into proper behavior. I used to dread the event every year!!

Pretty mild compared to what has happened in other cities after something like this - a few couches were burned in front of frat houses near the UW, some damage was done to the pergola in Pioneer Square, the cops were on scene and it wasn’t nearly that bad. The headline from some nobody’s blog says RUN RIOT - not true.

Raucous scenes? I must be getting old - I remember when they were called RIOTS and the cops used to shut them down.

Ten pictures taken at different angles of the same burning couch in the UDist is not a riot. A riot is what Denver did when they won the SB a while back -smashed store windows overturned cars. The media hypes the riot police but all they did mostly is stand around, direct traffic and call the FD to put out the couch fire(s).

It was hardly a riot. By Detroit and LA standards it was a tea party.

So a bunch of drunk college kids on frat row started burning their furniture. They don’t need a football game for that.

Morons were jumping onto the hoods of taxicabs, but none set on fire and no police were assaulted. Some of our more stellar citizens damaged the glass panes of an historic pergola, but that was the extent of it.

Pretty tame riot.

are you an Amanda Knox lawyer, or what.

she won a trial....went home, then they tried her in absentia using Italian double jeopardy and she was convicted again...

I don’t know if she did it or not, but I am not willing to let the Italian justice system decide....they have had 62 new governments since WW2. they might as well be a south American banana republic and my forebears come from there.

After the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stanley Cup win in ‘09 a few couches got burned in and around the Pitt campus.

The reaction of local politicians was to pass a law making it illegal to have a couch on your front porch in the City of Pittsburgh.

The Giants, of liberal NYC, have won the SB twice in the last few years (as a Packer fan, you already knew that) and there were zero riots - twice.

Guess that’s cause they never been there before. For some reason the Cowboy and Spur fans never riot when those teams win the championships.

They said there were a few arrests at frat row, but nothing major. As I watched the kids through their couches and mattresses on the fire in the middle of the road I was thinking “They’ll be regreting that tomorrow night.” Perhaps the head of the frat house will be making them sleep in the bathroom a few nights?

All quiet in downtown Bellevue.

This is Microsoft country, straight east across the lake from downtown Seattle.

About 5 minutes of whooping and horn honking and bottle rockets when the game ended, then, completely normal.

I was surprised, because we have a number of sports bars, and quite a few (upscale) drinking establishments.

....forebears....

Five bears. I raise you one.
I certainly did not mean to cast asparagus upon the fair face and form of that paragon of feminine virtue, Ms. Amanda. In fact, I am surely glad she eventually won her appeal in that rather idiosyncratic justice system and was released from durance vile in plenty of time for the riots.

However, I shall remain convinced that Ms. Amanda, as guilty or innocent as she may be, did not download the full story, i.e., did not let us in on the details she may have known or not known of her roomie's demise.

However, one should look at the bright side. She went to Italy to learn Italian, and learn it she did while accepting room and board from the Eyetie Gov. Neither was it some dry classroom version of the lingo, but a far more spicy and pungent version. Ms. Amanda, should perhaps view it as a sort of scholarship.

BTW, were I she, I would tend to avoid any planned trips to that certain boot-shaped Mediterranean country of your forebears.
