If someone, anyone is infringing on your rights, then defend it.

With a throat punch or using the 2nd Amendment.




It has been defended. The guy is in custody. He is going to pay for this crime.
I guess my question is are you shocked that it happened?


No.

People do stupid things all the time.


Yes. And sometimes I find it ironically humorous.

If I walked outside to get my paper every day at the exact same time my neighbor did.

I wouldn’t feel justified to commit any violence.

But when I got my paper if he got in my face and screamed Nazi for three years!!!!!!

I would have no problem knocking his teeth down his throat consequences be damned.

Really? Cuz I just saw him equate this guy destroying someone else's property with Rosa Parks' act of civil disobedience in sitting in the "wrong" seat on a public bus.

Does that mean everything he stood for should automatically be ignored?

Because that’s all that everyone on this thread has done . Repeatedly over and over pushing the position that he committed a criminal act while ignoring everything else


Sorry, a bit slow today..I don't understand what you are getting at? what is being ignored?

I see what’s happening.

You’re repetitively missing the points .

The guy that slashed a balloon broke the law doesn’t matter how he broke the law he broke it .

Rosa Parks broke the law . A completely unjust law but it was still a law at the time .

Rosa parks criminal infraction turned out to be great for everyone. Even though everybody didn’t see it that way at the time .

I brought up the Boston tea party earlier. The loyalist wanted those guys arrested . But another act of criminal disobedience benefited all Americans .

Hoyt popped the deluded socialists balloon. Nothing will probably come of it but you never know what kind of movement could “balloon” out of that action .

Out of curiosity, over the last three years, how many people have walked up to you, got in your face, and actually screamed NAZI? Has even one person done this at all to you?

Conflating is an understatement with that comparison.

Unless you feel that laws protecting personal property, or the 1st amendment and freedom to peacefully protest are unjust... your comparison makes no sense at all.

This entire thread people have almost exclusively concern theirselves with the action being a crime send condemning it .

The most part it hasn’t gone much farther .

I’ve even ceded that point in a attempt to further the discussion.

I’ve gotten nowhere . ( maybe a little bit recently )

Instead they want to argue about why I think someone’s a patriot.

Not the message his act represents .

The first amendment doesn’t end when they slap the handcuffs on .

Not if you read the thread .

Or are you saying it’s OK to break some laws and not OK to break other laws .

I don't need to read the whole thread to know segregation and Trump supporters isn't a fair comparison.

I'm honest enough to say people are losing their sh## when it comes to people who are pro Trump, and that's not cool.

But the two aren't the same.

Hoyt's actions in no way relate or compare to civil disobedience.

His actions simply show that he doesn't agree with the 1st amendment, and peoples' right to peacefully protest. Hoyt denying people their 1st amendment right is about as unAmerican as one can get.

Maybe you should read the thread then. Because my point was they were laws were broken .

Is it OK to break some laws under the first amendment but not others ?


I’m not even defending his criminal charges anymore. I’m just showing what a bunch a hypocrites everyone on this thread is .

Until you came on this thread I have an expected an honest answer .

Let’s see what happens .


As I’ve said for the update time. At this point in the conversation the fact that he broke the law should not be pertinent .

The discussion should be on his message and whether it was justified . Rosa Parks actions were justified, the 60 Patriots at Boston Harbor were justified .

I feel that Hoyt’s action was justified because I’ve had enough of the left’s bull# .

If Rosa Parks had a George Wallace balloon and she popped it with her hat pin. Would you still be as unbalanced as you are now ?

Rosa Parks lived in an era where she drank from a different water fountain and sit in the back of a bus.

You could make plenty of other comparisons and I'd be on board.

I voted for Trump. I've had relationships deteriorate beciad people can't understand the nuance of my thought process. I've had things erode more once I voiced my concern he's a pandering puppet the likes of Obama for the left.

But none of that is comparable to what Rosa weant through.

If Rosa Parks had a George Wallace balloon and she popped it, then she would no longer have a George Wallace balloon.

What does that have to do with Hoyt destroying someone else's property?

And when she broke the law to make her statement it change things didn’t it ?

Yet people viewed her and her actions as criminal .

It’s the perfect comparison. She was considered a criminal and changed a nation .

You consider Hoyt a evil no good criminal without constitutional rights. That should be ignored because he popped a balloon .

Many considered Rosa a criminal at the time too.

What kind of movrment???

Can I take a guess here....

Angry wacko leftists are gonna be more vicious to the trump campaign signs this time around. Ain't saying all leftist are angry or wacko... just that some leftist might be a bit angry the guy back stabbed their baby trump. Nor am I saying there isnt angry wackos on the right. But my guess is that if this guys actions has any long lasting effect (outside to his bank account and freedom) , it will be just to esculate the tit for tat bs that's been going on between the loons on both sides.
