Black Armbands for Tea Partiers?

In an email, a blogger mentioned, off-handedly, the idea of "Purple Hearts for Tea Partiers."

I would suggest taking this idea seriously. I would suggest that when Tea Partiers congregate, they wear an armband of a specific color if there has been any assault on them in, say, the past month. I'd suggest Purple for a bruising attack/simple assault (as Tabitha Hale suffered), Red for any attack that draws blood, and black for a truly serious attack, a deadly sort of attack (which may or may not result in actual death).

I'd say that guy getting his fingers bitten off by a nonviolent, peaceful leftist Concern-Fag would be a black attack (and let's hope for no more of those).

The reason for this is simple: The media refuses to report these abuses. But they do love their pictures of Tea Partiers, so they have images of the people they're making snide remarks about.

If enough Tea Partiers adopt a specific sort of code system to demonstrate solidarity with the victims of leftist thuggery, the media will be forced to report it, even in their typical snide, dismissive manner. They will have to explain the presence of Purple or Red or Black armbands and note "They wear these to publicize attacks on them."

Which should make some viewers wonder: "Gee, why didn't the media itself publicize the attacks? I thought incivility was now Public Enemy Number one. Why are these people required to raise awareness of the attacks themselves?"

Oh, the media will have an answer: "Context." Whatever that means, because apparently there are some "contexts" that make an assault on a law-abiding girl non-newsworthy (and perhaps even justified). But at some point, they will have to break down and explain to their audience why so many in a crowd are wearing armbands.

And then the media can go on to explain why the usual rule of If It Bleeds It Leads has somehow stopped applying when someone on the right gets curb-stomped.
