The Vandalism Of the Left: Critical Mass Again

The Vandalism Of the Left: Critical Mass Again
By Thomas Lifson

The charming bicycling militants at Critical Mass have been involved in yet another traffic incident strikingly similar to one which took place last month.

Critical Mass claims to not be an organization, yet somehow spontaneously assembles a large group of cyclists on a regular basis to ride an unannounced route through San Francisco (or Berkeley, as it was most recently).

They ignore traffic signals and often shout at drivers, or even pound on their cars, in their self-righteous fury at those who dare to employ gasoline to power vehicles to take them to their destinations, rather than peddling a bike.

The recent incident in Berkeley mirrored the one in San Francisco: the Critical Mass people surrounded a van, pounding on it and shouting angry words at the inhabitants. CM claimed in both instances that the drivers reckless assaulted them with their vehicles, but the drivers claimed that CM threw bicycles under their wheels. In both instances, the police in the two cities believed the motorists, not the cyclists.

Isn't that just like a lefty! They want to tear down and ruin everything - and they think they are especially entitled to do so.

They just got done with throwing urine-filled bottles at the police in L.A.... you think that would've held them for awhile.
