The King County Republican Party celebrates the anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination tonight with their annual
Lincoln Day John Wilkes Booth Day Dinner. And who better to deliver the keynote address, than the GOP’s most ruthless character assassin, Karl Rove.
The reception with Rove starts at 5:30 PM, but the King County Dems are organizing a welcome party of their own at 4:30 PM, outside the Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center, 17620 International Blvd. in Seatac. Bring a sign and a loud voice, and help us give Rove a big, WTO-style* Seattle welcome.
Carla over at Loaded Orygun makes note of yet another dishonest righty accusing me of “inciting violence” with my “WTO-style” reference. Yeah. Right.
Anybody who took part in the WTO protests knows that they were largely peaceful, orderly, and well organized. The violence was incited by a handful of self-described “anarchists” and facilitated by a stunningly incompetent reaction by the Seattle police, who at first refused to step in and stop the anarchists, and then later overreacted by tear-gassing and arresting peaceful protestors and innocent bystanders.
Righties like Ted and the Orb should understand that words do indeed have consequences. Continue to convince your paranoid readers that unarmed liberals like me are seeking to incite violence, and eventually some nutcase might try to take us out preemptively.
