The loon in question’s name is Mona Eltahawy, who’s an Egyptian-American former Reuters correspondent and current frequent guest on Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC show.
And she decided that she’d go to town on a mini-billboard taken out by conservative, pro-Israel blogger Pamela Geller which said there is a moral difference favoring Israel over the Palestinians, in a New York subway station.
The ad said, “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”
So Eltahawy showed up with a spray paint can to deface the mini-billboard.
What follows is instructive…
You’ll notice that she thinks it’s unjust that she’s getting arrested when she’s vandalizing public property – not to mention she’s assaulting the person who stands in the way of her doing so when she spray-paints said person. She doesn’t think there should be any legal consequences to that.
Particularly since pro-Israel billboards are racist. Heard that?
No sense of entitlement there at all, right?
So if Obama takes out one of those mini-billboards and we decide we’d like to spray-paint a Hitler moustache on his face, or goat’s horns, or whatever – that’s protected speech? There’s no criticism to be made of that kind of behavior? Nobody can call us thugs for that?
Is that right?
Or is it just that if you’re a lefty, because you’re passionate about your beliefs you’re entitled to take it a step further?
Is that the deal?
