It was Funny When the 3 Stooges Did it

Pie throwing is a staple of slapstick comedy. I always loved the scene when the pompous windbag got taken down a peg or two by a pie in the kisser. It had its place in such "low comedy". There was never anything particularly witty or clever about it. It was like a fart joke, just a cheap laugh. It was never considered a valid political/philosophical discussion.
Michelle Malkin: WHEN ANGRY LIBERALS ATTACK cites a new Ann Coulter op-ed dealing with the recent rash of pie throwing incidents targeting conservative speakers on college campii across the country. I imagine these little stooges (sorry, but if you are going to resort to 3 Stooges tactics expect to be referred to accordingly) think they are being witty and clever. In this case, however, I believe Cyrano deBergerac said it best, and I am paraphrasing, "If you were witty and a man/woman of letters you might engage in honest debate, however, judging by your lack of any articulate speech I see you are entirely witless and a man/woman of no letters except those that spell the word 'fool."
Cyrano was funny. The 3 Stooges were funny. The Marx Brothers were funny. You collegiate pie throwers are neither funny nor clever. Just thugs.

UPDATE:Red beard, a commenter on LaShawn Barber's Corner makes this astute observation:
When leftists resort to this sort of physical violence, it means one of two things. Either they are watching their relevance dry up and blow away and are lashing out in the only way they know how, or they are on the verge of becoming a very dangerous force.

I hope it’s not the latter, but shadows remain of the last election, with leftist thuggery involving physical intimidation, broken windows, slashed tires, etc.


My thoughts exactly!
