    OH I have no problem accepting the facts, the OP jumping on the "it's the right wing" bandwagon is not very clever until the facts of the case are established.

    What I find hilarious is your sudden concern for the facts of this incident.

    For you specifically, if it had happened to a Tea Party rally, and the guys in the car had been yelling "Tea Baggers" and "Facists" and "Nazi's" I wonder if you'd be as concerned before yelling "IT'S THE EVIL LEFT WINGERS!"

    To create sympathy for the movement and give the more militant members of that movement a reason to get stupid. Allow me to refer you to this post, very early in this thread.

    Now, why in the world should the, "Right wing hope it isnt"? Let's not pretend this sort of tactic hasn't been done, before.

    Got any evidence to support that? I'm thinking, no, because that has been proported previously and the supporting evidence was an epic failure. Like when it was insisted that there were a lot of TP'ers arrested.

    The partisian paranoia in this country has become certifiable. If something gets thrown at a gathering of "liberals", then it must have been a right-wing nut job that did it. If something gets hurled at a gathering of "conservatives", then it must have been a socialistic, bleeding-heart lefty that did it.

    Dear lord, people, grow a brain! You remember what brains are... you had one as a kid. It's the thing between your ears that reminds you how to scratch your nose without poking your own eye out and how to tell the difference between fact and fantasy, specifics and speculations, that kind of thing.

    If there is a bunch of crazed sickos throwing chemical bombs at strangers, I don't care if they vote republican or democratic or if they're too young to vote at all, throw their scrawny asses in jail and don't just throw the book at 'em, use the book to hit the buggers over the head!

    Not everything in this world is based on righties versus lefties.

    Oh...well, in that case you're excused.

    In reality, it's usually a Libbo that's involved in something stupid.

    And thus, my point is made. Sadly.

    PORTLAND ó Occupy Maine protesters say Sunday morning's attack with a chemical explosive has left them with a mixture of anxiety and resolve.

    "We are more motivated to keep doing what we're doing," said Stephanie Wilburn, of Portland, who was sitting near where the chemical mixture in a Gatorade bottle was tossed at 4 a.m. Sunday. "They have heard us and we're making a difference."

    Wilburn said she was startled and briefly lost hearing in her left ear when the device exploded beneath a table about 10 feet away. Wilburn's hearing returned and police said no injuries were reported.

    Portland police Sgt. Glen McGary said the bomb was thrown into the campís kitchen, a tarped area where food is cooked and served. Protest organizers said the explosion lifted a large table about a foot off the ground.

    "There was no fire . . . We had a good 20 feet of thick smoke rolling out from under the table," Wilburn said. They could see the "G" on the 24-ounce bottle and its orange cap, as well as bits of silver metal, she said.
