Civil Disorder In Eureka
The Lost Coast Outpost reports on an anti- Trump demonstration in Eureka that seems to have gotten out of hand...or did it? I actually heard it first on KMUD radio. Sounded to me like the girl who called KMUD seemed proud of the goings on. Protesters have blocked 4th Street and maybe 5th by the courthouse. Going exactly to plan, I would think.
I'll say (or write) the same thing I wrote when the Occupy d- bags took over the courthouse way back when: It's too bad enough of the townsfolk don't have the courage to take matters into their own hands and go down there and kick some ass...or worse. It's called civil disobedience for a reason, and there are limits, and sometimes consequences, to free speech.
I'm tired of Eureka Police being put in the position of being the bad guys. Those of us who live here should have the guts to take back our town. I hesitate to write that because I don't know that I have the courage but, while listening to accounts on KMUD, I thought it might be time well spent to go downtown and use a Wrist Rocket ( a heavy duty slingshot), or whatever, to nail some of the protesters. That might teach them that supposed free speech can have its price. Plus, maybe they'll think twice about doing it again.
But, shamefully, I don't have the guts, aside from being too lazy. Hey, I have to wash the dishes. Some of us actually have responsibilities.
Let the flaming begin!
