CNS and Instapundit Are All Over The Looming Threat Of Eco-"Terrorism"

Yes, this is a big threat alright. I'm sure that any day now the ELF is going to blow up the Sears tower...

It's not that I agree with these people, it's just pretty funny to see them held up as a big threat. Most of them aren't even terrorists at all, though there are, apparently, some death threats now and then. Blowing up a lab is usually not the right thing to do...but if you're only trying to destroy the lab you're a criminal, not a terrorist. Terrorists are, inter alia, trying to, ya know, spread terror. None of this should be seen as an expression of sympathy with the eco-baddies.

But Insty and CNS "news" are all over it.

Oh, and as for the guy whose Hummer was trashed...well, I think the perpetrators are serious assholes who should go to jail. But just incidentally: owning a Hummer makes you an asshole, too, and I can't say I'm really going to lose any sleep over this one. It's hardly--contra Insty--a sign of a coming envirofascist 9/11. (Best parts of the story: the guy is living with his mom, but buys a $38,000 car; his neighbor wonders whether the vandalism is a "hate crime.")

Man, is it just me or is the right like a bunch of little girls when it comes to terrorists? Those guys seem scared by their own shadows. Again: they're terrorist force multipliers.

They're looking for someone to tell them they're safe, even if it's a lie.

Hummer Guy's mom is like 75, right? It's pretty possible that she has trouble getting around and he lives with her to help her out.

Amazing that the hummer thing happened in the DC suburbs, because now cop cars will be patrolling the streets of the suburbs, waiting for masked drunk 16 year old gutter punks to strike again. It's going to be hilarious.

There's a SOB in Charlottesville who drives around a Hummer with the vanity plate "GBLWRMR." What a bastard.

I've seen a Hummer in Northern Virginia with the license plate "8HYBRID".

These assholes should just give donations directly to al Qaeda, cut out the middle-man.

Or cut a check for somebody's tuition at a Saudi-sponsored madrassa.

These Hummer owners who have vanity plates that reinforce their vanity deserve a little monkeywrenching. Now, I wouldn't advocate spray paint or other vandalism, but a toothpick holding open a tire valve is easy to get away with and merely a temporary though hopefully enraging inconvenience.

Bend over as if to tie your shoe, and this shouldn't take more than a few seconds. Do it on the driver's side so the idiot doesn't blithely drive away on three tires. You don't want anyone getting hurt by this.

Sure, a brick through the windshield might be more satisfying viscerally, but think how long you can laugh about this milder prank without joining your victim in assholery.
