SKIRMISHES IN THE COLD CIVIL WAR.

It's heating up.  Anarchists and Patriot Bikers slug it out in Berkeley.  A Middlebury faculty member goes to hospital because students object to her interviewing Charles Murray.  Now a Montana Congressional candidate may have boosted his turnout by roughing up a Guardian reporter.
It’s one thing for idiot college kids to be violent. But a middle-aged Congressional candidate?

It is disgusting to me that some conservatives are defending this thuggery, saying that the reporter had it coming.
Yes, conserving bourgeois norms ought to be the prime directive for people calling themselves conservatives.  And yet this Kulturkampf may not be resolved short of normals marching into the common room at Yale or the producers' desks at NBC and dictating the terms of surrender.
