Borrowing from one of the commenters...How much of a tough guy are you, really? If you think you could handle waterboarding, just see if you can make it through 7 minutes of this screed by Ms. Hippy McBongenstock.

It annoys me when people who clearly want to live in a communist world go around calling themselves anarchists.

She wants to be your boss, and she has some ideas for how she will make you behave each day.

If it weren't for weapons simulations I wonder where we would be. Supercomputers don't buy votes, so politicians are unlikely to approve them.

From her lips: "I am an anarchist and I believe in organization"

huh?

(well the who ramble is a series of huh?s)

Agreed. Anarchy is pretty much the exact opposite of their Socialist Utopia they advocate.

Naming a child Thistle - were the parents able to tell something about her while yet in the womb?

“Organized anarchist” — there’s a contradiction in terms! This woman truly answered Vladimir Lenin’s call for useful idiots... By the way, calling for violent overthrow of the nation is a violation of the U.S. Constitution, but then I nearly forgot that 0Bama does not believe in that document.

I’m still not 100% sure she isn’t some conservative/ libertarian who is parodying a silly Pippi Longstocking leftist.

Still not sure.

I’ve always been fuzzy on what kind of society/economy it is exactly that Anarchists want. It would seem to me that modern technology is the only thing keeping these idiots fed, clothed and sheltered.

I thought that the Left gave up trying to hang CNN on our side as nobody bought it, not even their base of complete morons.

She just reminded me. How much did the Wisconsin State Capitol cleanup and damage repair cost and who paid the bill? I thought they would want people to forget that part.

I have to disagree with you. Young people react negatively to losers like this in general. If you make Thistle the face of the recall movement, then you are on the way towards killing the movement.

This girl obviously took one look in the mirror and realized that “the good life” wasn't going to be handed to hear on a silver platter. So instead of trying to improve her mind, develop a fetching personality, and make as much of her unfortunate looks as possible she's playing the “I reject everything” game.

I think this is the most common path to lesbianism. A lot of these women are simply to lazy and to averse to risk to jump into the “competitive marketplace” and fight for the man of their dreams. So they purposefully go the other way and pretend to have no interest in men so their looks and lack of refinement aren't held against them.

It's the “easy” and “safe” route...in the view of someone with an underdeveloped mind.

The absolute best line from “Thistle” was “ It’s really hard to be an Anarchist in America, man!”

The second best was “The Military Industrial Media Complex”....

I swear to God, an enterprising PhD candidate in Psychiatry, Psychology, Sociology, Politics could absolutely score an entire dissertation - gift wrapped with a bow tie and/or straight jacket......just damn.....

A thistle is some kind of plant part that is long and straight and can often get caught up in one’s garments or undergarments if one were to lay down in such, right? The effect being the person feels like they have a burr in their ass?

Anarchy is more about preventing the State from protecting private property than it is not having a Government at all.

That girl needs to seek professional help real quick.
She has some thing seriously wrong with her medulla oblongata.
Perhaps a lobotomy with a mellon-baller would help.

I finally watched this tonight because Vicki McKenna mentioned it today. I had to see it.

It was well worth viewing the whole thing. These are the Moonbats we are fighting against. Pippi Bongstocking is Queen of The Moonbats.

I marked the start of epic meltdown at video time 5:20.

As one youtuber put it, Thistle should be the DNC Chair.

Poor anti-corporation Thistle, with her Disney corporation-authorized Tinker Bell earrings, doesn't understand why she's not taken seriously when rambling about warmongering in a state election.

I so enjoyed myself in Madison today. A fellow in the car next to the one I was in had his window down and was sporting a “Recall Walker” bumper sticker. I loudly said to him, “Yes, I recall him and he is great.” I was able to say it to him a couple of times as we came up to his car. He wasn’t too happy with me, but I was!
