Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 18

Violence as chronicled in this blog includes assault, vandalism, threats of violence, and doxxing.  As usual, by the time I have compiled two long posts full of left-on-right violence, there's a shorter list of links to stories of right-on-left violence that should also come to light.  This is that list of links.  All one of … Continue reading Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 18

Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 17

Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 14

I was away from posting for a while.  A death in the family, plus other commitments, kept me from posting.  Also, I'm way behind on Instapundit articles and have barely commented there.  But I was keeping track.  I had a stash of links to episodes of violence committed with obvious political motivation.  So when I … Continue reading Doctor Weasel’s House of Horrors: Political Violence, Part 14
