Payback

Well, I'm sure you've heard that a horde of slavering moonbats has been blockading the gates to the Port of Olympia in Washington, preventing the unloading of military hardware brought back from Iraq for refurbishing. The loons have not only been standing in front of the trucks, they've also been pouring concrete on railroad tracks to hinder the movement of materiel.

They claim it's a demonstration of "people power" and an exercise of their rights to dissent, to assemble, to petition for redress of grievances, to speak out, and whatnot.

Well, they ain't the only ones who have that right. So I'm wondering if it'd be just as fine and dandy for people who disagree with them to express their feelings in similar ways.

Here's a video the asshats posted of themselves. If you can stomach it, skip ahead to 4:17 -- there's one lunatic woman who's sitting in the middle of the road, in the path of a tractor trailer hauling a Stryker, while nursing a baby. For starters, why don't the police haul her ass off for child endangerment?

But that's the role of the police. I'm thinking of ways regular folks can express their disapproval. And they've given us license to emulate them.

(Author's note: I'm stuck on the other side of the country, so there's no way I'd be able to practice any of these. But it's fun to speculate.)

First off, these people must have gotten to the Port somehow. Most likely by car. And while they're sitting in front of the gate, those cars are elsewhere.

Remember, damaging their vehicles is illegal, as well as wrong -- those cars did nothing wrong. The aim should be to inconvenience them, not cause them actual damages.

I think traditional wedding-day pranks would serve as good role models. Tie tin cans to their bumpers. Get some soap (or that stuff car dealers use to write on windows) to express your sentiments on their windows. Bring a bunch of Post-It notes and cover all their windows. Block their cars in with cinderblocks. Perform a "citizen's arrest" and chain a couple of the cars together. (But be careful not to scratch the paint!)

Next up, the more direct approach. Think "suicide bombers." Get some brave souls to volunteer to infiltrate their ranks, armed with stink bombs. Then, in unison, set them off on their own persons. For bonus carnage, eat some refried beans or steamed cabbage or whatever gets your digestive tract into full chemical warfare mode.

The most important thing, though, is to not give them what they want -- credibility. Do NOT get angry with them, do not shout obscenities or make obscene gestures or in any other way let them see that they are being taken seriously. The goal is to mock them, to deride them, to annoy them -- NOT to feed their martyr complex and paranoid fantasies. They are not being confronted by the Royal Guard, but by the Royal Jesters. Ace's readers have the right idea with their monkey-wrenching of the whacko's calendar.

These days, there is much power in victimhood. But there is little in being a laughingstock. That must remain the goal above all else.

The railroad tracks they cemented did no wrong either.

Find their car park and encase all four of their tires in very quick drying cement.

Allen:

If you hurt them, they will sue you. They also claim free speech. Why not sue them for wasting taxpayers money (the Police Dept.) trying to enforce their free speech? (Better yet shoot the SOB's) but that is illegal.

Yes, they have the right to demonstrate, but they are way out of line, and this BS needs to be stopped. Let the police loose on them, love the sound of nightsticks hitting skulls.

Why not arrest them and send them to Leavenworth?

they've also been pouring concrete on railroad tracks to hinder the movement of materiel.

For the uninitiated here, the simple solution is to loose the railroad cops on them. Railroad Police have a unique perspective on this sort of lawbreaking.

The mother with the infant should be arrested and prosecuted to fullest extent of the law. Hopefully there is family support to step in for that deranged idiot.

asshats - all of them. All they are doing is denying some poor trucker his .38 a mile and wasting his time. This is why moonbats always fail - they are just too stupid for words.

Peter F.:

This is what actually makes this whole Olympia protest somewhat laughable: They're trying to stop shipments coming BACK from Iraq.

They failed in stopping the shipments from going TO Iraq a while back, so maybe they figured...well...I don't what they figured.

Trust me, I've been very tempted to travel the 40 miles down to Olympia to have a little fun. Their cars should be easy enough to spot--BDS stickers, Kerry/Edwards stickers, Evergreen State College stickers (where many of these loons go to school and are encouraged by their profs to do these protests), etc. But I think they're doing a pretty good job of making asshats of themselves.

Only San Francisco is filled with more liberal fruitcakes than the Seattle area/Puget Sound.

Why not pour sand in their gas tanks? Why not find out where they live and have their utilities turned off? (assuming they don't live in trees, that is)

Don't leftists like this preach endlessly about how it is their duty to take action for things they believe in? Don't they lecture us on how beautiful and wonderful civil disobedience is?

Let's see how they whelp when the mocassin is on the other foot.

clancy makes another good point. These OTR/LTL drivers are working their asses off and the Libs could care less.

Where are the "working family" apologists? The Teamsters?....oh, I forgot, these drivers are probably non union. In fact, they are probably the one thing that is anathema to the pro union, liberal, MSM usual suspects: independent contractors.

I do live in the right state, but unfortunately I'm headed in the other direction this weekend. I may be able to pass the idea along to a few friends who live on the coast though....

nogo war:

C'mon Jay, and others, are you saying there are no anti-war actions in your town? Why call on others to do this..Why not go down to the next rally and mock them or throw a stink bomb?
A few people on a corner with signs reading "Support the Troops, Bring'em Home"
Stand right next to them with a sign saying "Support our troops, More Tours"
You folks mock here but lack the courage of your convictions to visibly mock.
Stand on a corner with a sign "Honk for War"

Nope..making yourselves vulnerable for open rebuke by the public takes a little more..
But hey ya all keep typing away here..

Why not bring up a big plate of fresh cooked milk-fed veal cutlets, and offer them this article, j-walk.com/other/goodwife/index.htm, to read while they enjoy.

Scrapiron:

Someone remove their tinfoil long enough to tell them that this equipment is not on the way to Iraq. It's mostly broken down, shot up equipment returning from Iraq for repair. Delaying it's movement only hurts the 'civilians' (most likely your neighbors since you would have no friends) that do the repair work.

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

Can we send these people to Iraq to exercise their rights? They can go in to show how their moonbatism will help convince the terrorists to lay down arms/bombs without all those military equipments. After they have failed, then the military will go in to clean up those terrorist nests. Let them exercise their "diplomacy first" rhetoric.

Mycroft:

I prefer the simplest of all - just let the air out of their tires!

All they have to do is to get someone to come and fill them up - after they probably have to have them towed to someplace to do it!

I don't think it's quite fair Peter to take a holiday tradition that gramma used to make (fruitcakes) and denigrate such a delicacy when comparing the misguided. They don't even qualify to be at the level of a fruitcake.

Although the "imitation-fruitcakes" did make it to the stage tonight in Vegas. (be very worried)

Molon Labe:

They get by with this crap because there is absolutely no downside to it. Only the approbation of their moonbat peers.

The most effective weapon against them is to laugh at them.

These people are behaving illegally and should be arrested and prosecuted.

The whole point of so-called "civil disobedience" is to accept the legal consequences of your "act of conscience." For example, Martin Luther King, Jr., was jailed several times during the civil rights movement for violating laws he considered unconscionable. If these "protesters" are sincere, they will likewise accept their punishment - BUT, first, the authorities must arrest them.

Faster, please.

Jay, I like your stink bomb... (Below threshold)
Candy:

Jay, I like your stink bomb and cabbage idea.

I have a cousin who is famous (in the family) for dropping stink bombs just as he leaves elevators, or as he is walking swiftly through an airport. He once cleared a theatre out in Boston, and his wife darn-neared killed him for that one. Stink bombs are potent.

I suggest at least 50 of you band together with stink bombs, but be sure to dress in "Moonbat Drag" first. Jay's further suggestion to add "fuel to the fire" with cabbage is great, but I have to go with Mexican food. It will never fail you in this sort of unique covert operation.

Cigar smokers - BEWARE - you'll have to form your circle well in advance of this assignment, or the entire area could go up in smoke.

Godspeed, my friends.... Godspeed.

Everyone needs to click on the Ace of Spades HQ link Jay provided and then follow ace's links to the Olympia hippie calendar of events, which has been thoroughly punk'd.

Pure.
Comedy.

Spurwing Plover:

Why are they not arresting these persons they are opening violating the laws and frankly they should be made to clean up the mess and right out of their own pockets no more fooling about their commiting deliberate sabotage and had this been WW II they would have faced the firing squad
