    As predictable as the sun; the right is a big fan of violence.

    As to the OP, one can never rule out the possibility of agent provocateurs in this type of situation (establishment desperate to discredit). From the OP's link:

    Some protesters tried to stop the vandalism, but were ignored.

    About time for some people to learn what a Black Bloc is. They are not there to protest they are there to use direct action.

    No, they're pissed off at corporatism, which is a mixture of Corporate entity with the State and is very very anti-free market and facilitated through government action.

    But they don't really want a free market. They want free-bies. They want to have all their needs met regardless of their own input.

    Sounds to me like a bunch of thugs who enjoy destroying property and raising hell. They're "anarchists?" What do they think they're going to accomplish rioting in Seattle, bring down the government? Maybe they mixed up Washington DC and Washington State.

    Their mothers should have taken them by the ear years ago and made them face up to their misdeeds. It's too late for that now, so they need to be put in a chain gang and made to work off the cost of the damage they have done.

    Anarchists, indeed. They're just a bunch of hooligans that need to be reined in.

    So you would support an armed insurrection to get rid of Obama?
