This Wouldn't Happen if We'd Just Close the Borders, Hire Conservative Professors, and Bomb Other Countries to Encourage Democracy

this wouldn't happen if we closed the borders
Well, as expected, the vicious leftist assault on conservative truth has reached appalling new lows with three recent food-related assaults on conservatives. In the past week, David Horowitz and William Kristol have been splattered by pies of indeterminate flavor, while Pat Buchanan has been doused with salad dressing.

Senator John Cornyn of Texas had this to say earlier today:
"I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect connection but we have seen some recent episodes of violence against conservative commentators in this country. Certainly nothing new, but we seem to have run through a spate of food-related violence recently that's been on the news and I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions that conservatives are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in - engage in violence."
Many commentators believe the roots of this recent violence can be found in the recent, cryptic remarks of Tom DeLay, who suggested that "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." We're not sure if "this" refers to the catastrophe in Iraq, the racist mobilization of "Minutemen" on the US-Mexican border, or the fallacious assaults on higher education in the name of "intellectual diversity," but it seems clear that these deranged food-tossers are taking their marching orders from someone. A wise use of Congressional resources, I think, would expose the true roots of the problem. We must demand hearings!
