OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say The Olympian and one of the newspaper’s photographers were targets of vandalism that included anarchist graffiti and an acidic substance.

Police said Friday graffiti was painted at the Tumwater, Wash., home of photographer Tony Overman. The words “Overman snitch” were painted on a newspaper delivery truck and an apparently acidic substance was thrown on the exterior of The Olympian’s building.

There are some interesting comments below the main article. Could it be possible that more violence from the left is getting through to the media at some levels?

That’s an interesting point, but I’d hardly believe that. Nonetheless it always heartens me to see the leftists engage in violent and destructive acts, especially in Lefty Land.

And, well...

Masked anarchists have been virtualy ignored by the MSM.
Now that media figures are being attacked that may change.

You know the saying about animals not soiling their own beds? Well, the anarchists commonly do soil their own beds and some on the left wish they wouldn’t.

These leftist anarchists want to make the rules but not follow any rules.

They are heading toward lead implants to go with their other body piercings.

You are absolutely right; at some point perhaps by mistake
the anarchists will soil their own beds and harm or kill one of the members of the elite MSM, then they will be seen in a different light.

I hope everyone has noticed that the left inherently understands that they can’t advance their agenda in the open by honestly presenting their goals and how they plan to accomplish those goals.

Every time someone or some group “slips” (usually because they have mistaken their bubble for general public acceptance), the rest of them circle the wagons to hush it up.

Which leads me to the concept that we should all keep in mind -

very simply,

to defeat the left, expose the left.

Much of the anarchist movement is centered right here in WA State/Oregon area. The ELF and other anarchist groups are very active here. That anarchist group that offered training for disrupting the Republican conventions is here. I can’t remember their name, but this area is their home turf.

With reference to the general principle that we all like an orderly society perhaps there could be made an exception for one group of leftists physically attacking another group of leftists.

"Could it be possible that more violence from the left is getting through to the media at some levels?"

Anarchists are not leftists..they are against any government right or left. That said..it's possible that the left is causing the violence and the media is blaming it on anarchists. Tricky little devils they are...

Anarchists are not leftists..they are against any government right or left.

Incorrect. Anarchists are extreme leftists, who buy into the doctrine that at the end-stage of communism, "government will whither away".

What they are against is government protection of private property. Anarchists are in favor of mob rule, with the anarchist elite being in control of the mob. They want the mob to have all the power, and for there to be no defense against mob action.

Actually, yes they will. They will use government against you whenever they can, as they attempt to destroy you.

It’s my understanding that Kevlar won’t stop a “stab” attack either.

I don’t get these anarchists. Do they even have a coherent ideology? What do they do when they’re not “protesting” against the forces of evil? Serve fair trade coffee to people?

Not necessarily true. They do tend to hate free market capitalism and want equality in outcome, hate American traditional views/think America is more bad then good, have Utopian views of humanity being born “good” then becoming “bad” via society, and alley themselves with Marxists who pretty much define how far left you can possibly go. I don't know if that's how the dictionary it, but that seems to be the gist of what I find Anarchists to be. Noam Chomsky defines himself as an anarchist.

If and when "government will whither away" it could just as easily be taken over by the extreme right..as in the ME (Iran for example).

Anyone calling for a total collapse of government does not know who will come out on top...to coin a phrase...anarchists just want "change".

Old folk sayings...Better be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. And "change" isn't always "good".

There are probably 20,000 different hyphenated political philosophies between the two of them, but somehow I can’t help but think that they’re basically the same just like they were a little over a century ago.

Irony noted. So is their demand for a totally open society (everyone shares everything except minor physical possessions, total lack of financial privacy to ensure equality), no private property rights to inventions, but don’t you dare take their picture in a public place.

Allow me to re-state that slightly: “Anarchist” is the word applied by the MSM to lefties who get out of the groove, get a little frisky, hurt somebody, etc. It just wouldn’t do to call a violent progressive social democrat something that would identify who he really is. A true “anarchist” would just head to the woods to be left alone.

Interesting perspective. I observe that masked anarchists are almost always carrying weapons. It would be very hard to argue in court that an armed citizen who dropped one or more of them was acting imprudently - when screaming masked men with baseball bats are menacing people and smashing property in the midst of a riot all bets are off.

These anonymous, belligerent "tough guys" are only tough guys when they have the advantage of numbers and a disarmed ciizenry to exploit.

More Carlo Giulianis would set them straight.
