Still a few kinks to work out

I read an Associated Press article in the local newspaper this morning reporting that most of the violence witnessed at a recent Trump protest in Oregon was perpetrated by a group of self-described anarchists who elbowed their way into an otherwise peaceful gathering. As it turns out, these were the folks who were primarily responsible for the smashing of windows and other mayhem that occurred at the scene. Well, speaking of anarchists…

Here’s some breaking news from Pryamukhino, Russia: Alan Cullison of the WSJ reports that Sergei Kornilov is having difficulty organizing his annual anarchist meeting. The gathering typically draws about 50 to 100 activists, many of whom end up skinny dipping in the river and dancing naked around bonfires. Other activities include some participants encouraging others to help in shoring up the deteriorating building used by the group’s organizers. But the structure continues to fall into disrepair as some anarchists objected to the prospect of other anarchists giving them direction.

    Anarchists Schmanarchists! Knuckleheads I tell ya. I never have understood the destructiveness of these people. Otherwise peaceful demonstrations are bastardized and ruined by their antics. And what’s the point? What good do they envision themselves doing? Yes…head to the river, take your clothes off, skinny-dip and expose your other shortcomings to the world..
