I don’t think this strategy will work to sway undecided voters or to get Romney supporters to vote for Obama. But, apparently some Obama supporters thought it might work in Alta Loma, California. Two owners’ cars were hit by the vandals who keyed “OBAMA” into a couple cars and slashed the car seats. The cars were targeted because there were “Romney/Ryan” signs in the owners’ front yards. Ironically, one of the victims Ken Slown is an Obama supporter whose family was staying with his Romney-supporting in-laws. I don’t think he’s feeling the love from his fellow Obama supporters. CBS reports:
“‘I don’t know if they were trying to get a point across, to vote for Obama,’ said Slown, ‘but to do something like this is not going to get the point across.’ He estimates the damage to both of his vehicles at about $3,400. In addition to both cars being keyed, his wife’s vehicle had her seats slashed, as well. Said Slown, ‘They pretty much cut the backs of all of the seats.’”
Obama supporters engage in this kind of behavior because they think they are immune from national scrutiny. They know the mainstream media won’t care that much. In fact, mainstream media might find it a little humorous. And we all know that if these acts of vandalism had been done by Romney supporters on Obama supporters, that would be news, and the pundits would be calling them racial hate crimes and evidence that whites hate Obama because he’s black. If you support Romney, it must be because you hate blacks and women. Therefore, these vandals are simply teaching these haters a lesson.
Speaking of Romney’s hating of women, one Indiana church was hit by some vandals who rearranged some letters on the church’s marquee to read, “Romney hates women.” Being that Mitt is married to one and has 5 kids with her, I’ll go out on a limb to suggest that he doesn’t really hate women.
Of course, people accuse him and Ryan of hating women because they both want to repeal Obamacare, which provides coverage for sterilizations, contraception, and abortion. Anyone who is opposed to a government mandating coverage for pre-natal murder must hate women.
But I can’t think of a whole lot of things more hateful to women than a government bureaucracy requiring employers to cover “services” that ultimately encourage sexual promiscuity and reduce women to mere objects of sexual pleasure. Their reproductive organs are not really for reproduction anymore; they’re strictly for pleasure. So, they offer all sorts of “services” that prevent anything “bad” from happening, like conception. If a woman does conceive, they have a “service” for that too. Sounds real loving and respectful of women, doesn’t it?
Obama supporters are marking their territory with vandalism, because that’s apparently all they’ve got left. Destruction of property seems to be the only way they can convey their messages of “hope,” “change,” “racial equality” and “women’s rights.”
