Wisconsin Occupier invites himself for cocktails with Gov. Scott Walker

Font Size:

Molotov cocktails.

Oh, sorry, my mistake. Occupy is over now, apparently? Now they want to call themselves Idle No More?* And allegedly, one of their members was caught with a bottle filled with gasoline in the Wisconsin State Capitol building. Which seems noteworthy, since today’s news is all about keeping crazy people from doing violent things.

Brandon Darby reports:

A Wisconsin activist was arrested Tuesday at the state Capitol building just hours before Governor Scott Walker was to deliver his State of the State Address to Wisconsin lawmakers.

The man, Kvon R. Smith, had reportedly used Facebook to threaten to do harm at the Capitol. Law enforcement was ready for him and arrested him as he attempted to enter the building. Smith then reportedly claimed to have a Molotov cocktail in his backpack. Police evacuated portions of the capitol building and a bomb squad reportedly arrived and handled the backpack. Police did not say whether or not the backpack contained the explosive device the man allegedly claimed it did.

A search of the man’s apparent Twitter account reveals deep sympathies for Palestinians, support for other liberal and far-left causes, and claims of previous felony charges. Smith has also expressed support for the newest leftist movement, which previous Occupy
supporters are beginning to flock to, named “Idle No More.”

Here’s a video he made about it, because there’s no point in doing this stuff unless you’re going to leave a lot of evidence:

And now, a peek at Kvon R. Smith’s Twitter leavings:

Seems like a normal enough young man. And if you go to his Facebook page, you can look at pictures of him shooting guns. Which you might think is bad, because guns are intrinsically bad, but it’s okay because he voted for President Barack Obama.

Hat tip to Ace of Spades, who notes that political violence gets blamed on the right a lot, whether or not it’s actually A) political or B) violent. Like blaming Sarah Palin for Jared Loughner, or claiming somebody spit on Emanuel Cleaver. Neither of those things are true, but since when was that a reason for a liberal not to believe in something?

Whereas left-wing violence is either ignored outright (like the nationwide Occupy crime spree) or blamed on right-wingers (like that guy who quoted the Communist Manifesto before flying a plane into an IRS office in Austin), because telling people the truth about it might interfere with the goals of liberals and the media. Pardon the redundancy.

I’m sure if any of our betters in the media had souls to search, they’d say they don’t really approve of such behavior. They just don’t see any need to make a fuss about it.

Oh, by the way, this post is racist because this guy is black.

*Wasn’t that the name of a band once? I’ve blocked out large chunks of the ’90s…
