Number of conservative columnists who called for Tea Partiers to riot still zero.
Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson wrote Wednesday that riots may eventually “prove to be the common form of protest after unions,” in a piece for the American Prospect on the failed recall of Gov. Scott Walker:
Of course, as historian Fred Siegel, a leading opponent of public-sector unions, remarked to me many years ago (when he was still on the left), before unions, the common form of protest for workers seeking a better life was rioting. That may eventually prove to be the common form of protest after unions, too.
