'08 race worker held in damage to Colorado Democratic HQ
Denver Post.com ^ | August 26, 2009 | Jessica Fender

Posted on 08/26/2009 6:51:18 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

One of two people suspected of shattering 11 windows Tuesday morning at the state Democratic Party headquarters has an arrest record and a history of helping a Democratic political candidate, public records show.

Police said that about 2:20 a.m., 24-year-old Maurice Schwenkler, now in custody, and an at-large accomplice took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts.

Early Tuesday, Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak said the damage to her building in Denver's art district was a consequence of "an effort on the other side to stir up hate." She tempered her statement after Schwenkler's political history was revealed.

"What I've been saying is there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum," Waak said. "That's what's been disturbing to me. People are saying a lot of things not appropriate for civil discourse."

For weeks, people on both sides of the health care debate have rallied across the country.

Schwenkler is charged with criminal mischief and is to make his first appearance in Denver County Court today.

He is accused of doing an estimated $11,000 in damage and could face a felony conviction.

On the last day of the 2008 Republican National Convention, he was charged with misdemeanor unlawful assembly in St. Paul, Minn.

Schwenkler didn’t do a very good job. A proper operative would have burned down the building.

She “tempered” her remarks about the anti-Obamacare “side” stirring up “hate”? No, she got caught lying, and had no choice but to mumble something about “both sides”. It wasn’t “both sides”, lady, it was YOUR side.

You're 100% correct.
It is the same technique employed by Tawana Brawley and Reverend Al Sharpton twenty years ago and recently utilized by crackpot lefty Professor Kerri Dunn in California in the past few years.

It is par for the course that liberals would blame conservatives for their mess, even though they are to blame.

What amazes me is how consistent this behavior is.

Well, there is that, I suppose. But this guy had been paid by the Dems ( she was the treasurer) before. It's beyond a casual connection.

No. They won't reveal that Gov. Bill Ritter was the other person. It would damage his career.

From the dailykods: "perhaps the idea was to blame it on the Tea Partiers and discredit them" (dailykos.com/story/2009/8/25/772125/-UPDATED:-Colorado-Dem-Party-HQ-Vandalized)

Also, "No public option? Let the mother****** BURN!!!!!!!!"

Also "Expect more of this across the nation as the reich-wing noise machine continues in overdrive its spewing of hate speech. At what point will our DoJ stop the most offensive of the on-air rabble-rousers from preaching sedition and subject them to criminal prosecution"

Also "It would seem that it might be related to all of the false hatred of dems that has been ginned up by the right-wingers"

Also "I hope they have insurance and that it doesn't exclude damage by Republicans as an act of God"

Also "kristalnacht... Should we be surprised at what is coming? I am concerned that this kind of activity will continue to escalate. There will be no way to contain these people in the future if we do not stop them now."

And it just goes on.

Ya gotta love the spin from the Denver Post here. She "tempered" her rhetoric, after blaming the opposition, by blaming both sides equally, even though it was some fruitcake within her party who did it.

I hope the local GOP has the guts to demand an apology from the state Dem chairwoman.

That's one statement.

"What I've been saying is there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum," Waak said.

That's a completely different statement that contradicts your previous statement, in which you smeared the opposition with absolutely no evidence to support your accusation.

The proper response would be to acknowledge your error and apologize without conditions for your slander. Bitch.

"This sounds like the type of Democratic tactic from the left fringe trying to make Republicans look mean-spirited," Balmer said. "In this case, it blew up in their face. He was caught red-handed."

This stinks to high heaven of a RAT setup cooked up by a community organizer. The only thing that went wrong was the cop showing up. The RAT machine is going to make that cop's life hell for screwing up their little caper.

The difference is, if this had been GOP on GOP, then Pelosi and the hacks would’ve been mentioning “hate attacks” and “typical republican hooligans” in every press conference.

Republicans will not mention a whit about this.

We're not fitting their made up narrative on the Socialized Medicine debacle, sooo, they're trying to gin it up - and getting caught at it. Kind of amazing the media didn't try to hide the shim's past, and maintain s/he was a conservative for a few more days/weeks/forever?

The media must have some kind of an algorithm that they do, to figure out if it is feasible for them to lie and promote liberalism, or not. Part of it does actually have to do with how OBVIOUS such lying would be.

But believe you me, there is a LOT of lying that goes on by the MSM/SRM/enemedia.
