Environmental wackos take bats and knives to neighbor’s Hummer SUV

Via the WaPo:

On a narrow, leafy street in Northwest Washington, where Prius hybrid cars and Volvos are the norm, one man bought a flashy gray Hummer that was too massive to fit in his garage.

So he parked the seven-foot-tall behemoth on the street in front of his house and smiled politely when his eco-friendly neighbors looked on in disapproval at his “dream car.”

It lasted five days on the street before two masked men took a bat to every window, a knife to each 38-inch tire and scratched into the body: “FOR THE ENVIRON.”

“The thought of somebody vandalizing it never crossed my mind,” said Gareth Groves, 32, who lives with his mother in a three-story home in the 4300 block of Brandywine Street NW in American University Park. “I’ve kind of been in shock.”

Now, as Groves ponders what to do with the remains of his $38,000 SUV, he has been the target of a number of people who have driven by the crime scene in his upscale neighborhood and glared at him in smug satisfaction.

“I’d say one in five people who come by have that ‘you-got-what-you-deserve’ look,” said his friend Andy Sexton, 27, who is visiting from Arkansas and has been helping Groves deal with fallout from the crime.

Not to throw around the word “terrorism” lightly, but this is, basically, what it is: violence in order to further a political agenda. Someone in the article used the word “hate-crime”. Well, in a normal world where all things are equal, it would be. I mean, if they had done this to his truck and wrote some kind of racial or gay slur on it, then liberals everywhere would be howling for justice, no matter what kind of vehicle it was. But since it was an attack on an SUV, and not some minority, and because it was an attack for the environment, then that’s perfectly ok. Don’t forget the fact that to liberals hate-crimes can only be against minorities like gays or blacks, not against anyone else. And it certainly can’t be against any of their pet causes, either. Even though hate was clearly at play here, it is a non-factor to them, because it is something that they, at their core, believe in.
