Obamunist Brownshirts Attempt a Reichstag Fire

Obamunists' clever handiwork.

Obamunists have taken the staged phoniness that characterizes their movement a little too far by vandalizing the Democrat HQ in Denver in an attempt to help the mainstream media paint opponents of socialized medicine as violent fanatics.

One of two people suspected of shattering 11 windows Tuesday morning at the state Democratic Party headquarters has an arrest record and a history of helping a Democratic political candidate, public records show.
Police said that about 2:20 a.m., 24-year-old Maurice Schwenkler, now in custody, and an at-large accomplice took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts.

A little background on this Obamunist brownshirt:

On the last day of the 2008 Republican National Convention, he was charged with misdemeanor unlawful assembly in St. Paul, Minn. … Schwenkler received $500 in November 2008 to walk door-to-door in support of Democrat Mollie Cullom, who lost her race to Republican state Rep. David Balmer of Centennial. … Schwenkler was one of dozens of paid canvassers bankrolled by the Colorado Citizens' Coalition, a political 527 committee funded by labor groups and well-known, wealthy liberal donors.
In those disclosures, Schwenkler's address is listed as Derailer Bicycle Cooperative, a free community bicycle collective that operates just around the corner from the Democratic headquarters. Multiple volunteers at the collective declined to discuss Schwenkler, though they said he was affiliated with the group.

State Rep Balmer states the obvious:

This sounds like the type of Democratic tactic from the left fringe trying to make Republicans look mean-spirited. In this case, it blew up in their face. He was caught red-handed.

Nonetheless, libs are still trying to blame patriots — or at least hide behind their beloved moral equivalence:

Early Tuesday, Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak said the damage to her building in Denver's art district was a consequence of "an effort on the other side to stir up hate." She tempered her statement after Schwenkler's political history was revealed.
"What I've been saying is there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum," Waak said.

Investigators are still trying to catch the other vandal (reportedly a transgender anarchist) and to confirm that Schwenkler is really a guy.

Maurice Schwenkler evidently passes for a man among liberals.

Interesting how the hat tips show who is covering this story and who is conspicuously ignoring it: ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR...

Caveat: if this case is as it appears...

How can liberals even hold their head up any longer? In recent years, the vast majority of cases of racial and political "victimhood" has been shown to be self-manufactured. They obviously hold zero moral high ground, yet continue to try and claim moral outrage by conjuring up stunts such as this. And they claim to be the "intellectuals"--it's ridiculous!

This vandalism can be best described as "Fake, but accurate"

Why dont liberals start their own private health insurance company for the uninsured funded by billions of dollars donated by clowns like the Kennedys, 90% of Hollyweird, George Soros, Warren Buffett, ect. In fact everyone who voted for Obama and wants healthcare for all should be required to donate start up capital for this new company.

Truth is limousine liberals will just not pay their taxes or use tax shelters via conveniently place loopholes.

Posted by: Ghost of America Past at August 26, 2009 11:11 AM

You have to remember how liberals think. They're agenda relies solely around someone else paying for it. If it was so damn important, they'd willingly foot the bill.

Hell, in PA, there's an optional fee you can pay (when you files taxes) that goes directly towards the state budget. Low and behold, it has yet to get ANY contributions. Sounds to me as though the high and mightly libtards that WANT WANT WANT are unwilling to GIVE GIVE GIVE but, instead, would rather STEAL STEAL STEAL by MAKING everyone else GIVE GIVE GIVE.

The cause is only worth fighting (to them) if it requires someone else paying for it. They're the last people that want to offer up their OWN help towards a cause but they're content forcing YOU to GIVE towards all causes.

Where is Andy and Welstone?

I wonder when they are going to condem these hateful attacks by liberals upon liberals?

Please Andy come tell us how horible these LIBERALS are for desecrating and vandalizing another democrat!!!!

I just looooove... Clueless wacko on clueless wacko crime!!!

Posted by: Michelle at August 26, 2009 11:19 AM

*state budget* should be *state deficit*.

Where is Andy you ask?

THAT IS pansy90210!

Maybe Lawrence Auster is right and we are entering the 4th stage of Nihilism

Posted by: mandy at August 26, 2009 11:52 AM

I see that that the statement, "An effort on the other side to stir up hate." by Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Waak about the recent vandalism to her building was changed to, "What I've been saying is there is a lot of rhetoric out there from both sides of the spectrum." when it is revealed that the vandalism was done by LEFT-WING DEMOCRAT extremists.

Funny how that works, ain’t it??

Man, Sandy Duncan sure has aged gracefully.

Posted by: Judith M. at August 26, 2009 12:18 PM

Fuzzlenutter, on a website like Moonbattery, that's called a 'Moby' and our resident is usually one of the many 'Anonypussys'

Posted by: Doug at August 26, 2009 1:02 PM


Thanks for the clarification. Not sure I'll remember that, but I do like pointing out all hypocrisy (on both sides).

Make him replace the window right out his own pocket and make him do the labor as well

I think that moonbat needs to be quarantined. It looks like if that moonbat bites people they will start turning into moonbats.

Posted by: Scaramouche at August 26, 2009 1:32 PM

1. Why am I not surprised that at least one Anarchist was behind it? Out of all the various liberal radical groups, I despise Anarchists the most, because all they really do is engage in vandalism, violence, looting, and rioting. Those swine were the ones who turned St. Paul into a war zone during the DNC, all they care about is spreading chaos. Bunch of revolting, meth- fueled savages.
2. Notice the guy has his right ear pierced. Isn't that a sign that means a guy is light in the loafers?
3. Waak's comments are quite unsurprising.

Posted by: Adam at August 26, 2009 1:40 PM

Adam, I didn't have to look that close to arrive at the conclusion you reached. Almost spewed when Judith posted her comparison to Sandy Duncan.

Posted by: UpNorth at August 26, 2009 2:33 PM

My, aren't you shrill.
So a couple of windows are broken in Denver by a 24yo who still rides a bike = Attempted Reichstag Fire.

Maybe if a flaming bag of turd is left on someone's doorstep you can tell us about the parallels with Operation Valkyrie.

Apparently the name of this blog is actually a mission statement. Congrats on pulling it off.

Yeah, it's so puzzling as to why some windows getting smashed somewhere isn't getting blanket media coverage.
Again, way to live up to the name of the blog, nutbag.

Posted by: Kilo at August 26, 2009 2:56 PM

Apparently the guy being involved in Dem campaigns wouldn't necessarily count for anything, because that could all be part of an elaborate hoax...

"But as Ace points out, the B appearing to be backwards by no means discredits the story. For all we know at this point, Ashley could be a liberal pretending to be a conservative faking a hate crime to discredit perfectly legitimate fears of the thuggery festering just under the surface of Obamania."

It's George Bush's fault. This georgeous young hunk was framed by Dick Cheney.

Posted by: Smoked a Kilo at August 26, 2009 3:56 PM

Apparently, the guys who were saying Maurice looks light in his loagers apparently were on the money.

As for kilo, the same media who covered the "minor vandalism" story initially and who bought into the local Democrats' claim that anti-ObamaCare protesters were responsible for the attack should sort of, you know, follow up with a correction.

It just gets queerer and queerer.

Posted by: Kevin R. at August 26, 2009 5:26 PM

Oh My god, "the working-class queers, queer people of color, queers lacking community or family, and gender-questioning youth are the ones who will be heavily targeted by recruiters, hear false promises, sign their rights away, and serve time in Afghanistan and Iraq".
Umm, I don't think so Sparky, but thanks for the huge laughs, anyway. My son was a Marine recruiter for 3 years, I just know he was cruising the malls looking for "gender-questioning youth". ROFLMAO..
People(?) like this really have no clue.

Denver was once a decent, conservative city built with the spirit of hard work and western self-reliance. Now, it's just another liberal city whose voters are determined to seek every entitlement and contrived social 'right' they can find. Sadly, much of western Colorado's conservative mountain towns and ranch lands have been overrun by progressive hippie-types who have succeeded in turning the state from red to blue.

When the get-away vehicle is a bicycle, the political affiliation of the suspect should be obvious. Count on party loyalists to keep trying, though, until they cover their tracks well enough for a hoax to stick, and then the media will run with it.

Posted by: lvb-rocks at August 26, 2009 11:09 PM

It also occurs to me that the MSM had no trouble hyping the non-story of people carrying weapons in states where the right to open carry is legally recognized.

But the classic 'man-bites-dog' story of pro-ObamaCare forces committing vandalism to smear anti-ObamaCare patriots doesn't fit the agenda, so they bury it.

Is that shemale Rachel MadCOW? If not she, he, it must be a close relative.

Posted by: Keef OlberWOMAN at August 27, 2009 5:08 AM

Oops, in my post yesterday, I meant to say "Those swine were the ones who turned St. Paul into a war zone during the RNC..."
Though, many of those same repulsive, Anarchist vermin also tried to inflict similar destruction at the DNC in Denver, but were foiled by the fact that the cops showed up there in full force and showed they were not going to take ANY crap from those punks. For an example of this, Zombietime offered an awesome photo report of how the Denver police completely derailed an attempt by the Anarchist freaks to start riots at the DNC fundraisers.

Posted by: Adam at August 27, 2009 5:53 AM

Follow up and correct their reporting that this vandalism was likely committed by slack-jawed yokels who cling to their religion and guns? Why that would ruin their perfect record of fake but accurate reporting! I mean, it COULD HAVE BEEN rethuglicans if it hadn't actually been one of their own operatives. Clearly you've never attended J school, V the K.

Posted by: Judith M. at August 27, 2009 5:57 AM

This story actually hit the DU. At least they were honest that he was one of their own. They ate a little crow and let the bonfire die out. Nothing to see here, move along.

Posted by: Karin at August 27, 2009 6:24 AM

Great analogy- of course the Nazis used that fake crisis to eliminate the opposition and declare martial law, if I recall correctly.

The way Obama's taking a wrecking ball to this society and ramming-through unpopular legislation now... makes you think he's looking for some useful crisis before 2012 comes and scrapes him out.

How many of these attempts to frame conservatives as violent nutbags is the public going to ignore before they demand to know the source?

Posted by: Reaganite Republican at August 27, 2009 10:19 AM

I was thinking more like Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass. Brownshirts busted the windows of Jewish businesses all over Germany but Goebels managed to blame Jews for the outburst. Look for Obama to blame Republicans for this little dweeb's anger.
