In the interest of non-partisan contempt for individuals who resort to violence against those with whom they disagree, I present to you a story about a guy who spit on Hanoi Jane Fonda:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A man spit tobacco juice into the face of actress Jane Fonda after waiting in line to have her sign her new book, police said.
The man ran off but was quickly caught by police Tuesday night and charged with disorderly conduct….
Capt. Rich Lockhart of the Kansas City Police Department said that although Fonda did not want to press charges against Michael A. Smith, 54, of Kansas City, he was arrested on a municipal charge of disorderly conduct after off-duty officers caught him just outside Unity Temple, where Fonda was signing books.
Just what did he hope to prove? There’s something very small about a “man” who does a petty act of violence like that and then runs off in an attempt to avoid the consequences. Like the pie-throwers on the left, Michael Smith deserves censure and scorn.
