Someone who may have just been off his meds — happens a lot in New York — tosses a small, improvised incendiary device into an Army Recruiting Center in Times Square in the middle of the night. So now the Gathering of Eagles — the same geniuses who rallied to protect the Vietnam Memorial from an imaginary threat last year — are going to rally in Times Square this Saturday to take a stand against domestic terrorism and anarchy.
No one was injured in the Times Square incident, and such vandalism doesn’t seem to be part of a trend here in NYC. However, in the past several months a number of innocent people around the country have lost their lives in mass shootings on campuses and in shopping malls. If they’re so fired-up against anarchy and violence, why aren’t the beagles lathered about that?
And note to the beagles: Roping off part of Times Square on a Saturday will get lots of people highly annoyed at you.
This criminal action against the recruiting station in Times Square has the potential of leading a national downturn in the minds of those who disagree with the war.
Last I heard, the NYPD thought the bombing might be related to an October explosion at the Mexican Consulate and a 2005 bombing at the British consulate. As I said, probably somebody off his meds. Maybe the beagles ought to be rallying for better medical care for psychotics.
