CBS News Readers Laugh At Milkshakes Being Thrown at Conservatives: "I'm Sure It Feels Great"

You know what else might feel great?

Throwing milkshakes at CBS personnel, both when they're doing live-shots and when they're just walking down the street on their own private time.

The rules you make for me, you also make for yourself.

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday laughed at a new trend by militant leftists: Dumping milkshakes on politicians they donít like. Co-host Tony Dokoupil began with a whimsical recounting: "In the latest of a series of attacks on right-wing politicians, Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage was doused with a milkshake yesterday. That was actually salted caramel if anyone is wondering."

This prompted laughter from Dokoupil's co-hosts. Continuing the jovial discussion of political violence, he added, "I'm sure it feels great. I'm sure people love the feeling. Pictures fly around the world."

After all but endorsing the attacks, they expressed the most picayune criticism of the topic possible: They were only able to rouse themselves to say that it's better to work for liberal political parties to vote conservatives out than to milkshake them.

The media in the UK is also actively encouraging this: and therefore also endorsing the extremist left's increasingly bold and violent attacks, as this twitter thread shows.

It starts with pelting people with offensive liquids, proceeds to tires-lashings, and ends with conservative politicians' homes being firebombed.

Yes, that happened. See the thread.

For people who bitch and complain when they're jeered at the opposite political party's campaign rallies, they sure take a more blithe attitude about conservatives being physically assaulted.

Well, like I said: We'll see how great it feels when the media starts getting pelted with some harmless, fun, happytime street justice.

More on this, including a beer company advocating hitting conservatives with bricks.

John Sexton at Hot Air notices the leftwing media defending and encouraging milkshaking.

The Guardian published an opinion piece titled "This Milkshake Spring isn't political violence -- it's political theatre."

It's time for Guardian reporters to face an impromptu drafting into their own political theater, then.

[quotations from the Guardian omitted]

In short: It works and they deserve it. The New Republic wrote a piece titled "Why Milkshaking Works" which serves as a kind of plea for understanding. Yes, it may be rude and it may even be assault but, on the bright side, it's humiliating!

...

Do you think tossing a milkshake on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Pete Buttigieg while they were out campaigning would be welcome or appreciated? I don't think so.

I guess we'll see. "Political theater" -- hey, all the world's a stage, right?
