Liberal ‘civility’ alert: Beer company advocates smashing people over the head with bricks

On Monday, the Chorlton Brewing Company, based in Manchester, England, advocated hitting “fascists” — a term reserved for anyone who is not a flaming left-wing communist — over the head with bricks.

“Note to our customers: please don’t throw our beer over fascists. Hit them over the head with a brick as is traditional,” the company wrote on Twitter, apparently in response to news that someone hurled a milkshake at Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

After facing backlash, the company doubled down, with the owner suggesting that violence against those to the right of center is perfectly acceptable.

Oddly enough, the company claims on its website: “We care deeply about ethics and try hard not to trash the planet or do uncool things in the pursuit of money.”

Right. Because there’s nothing that shouts “ethics” quite like bashing in the heads of those with whom you disagree.

The company then decided to block viewing of the tweet:

After advocating bloody violence against those with a different point of view, the company whined when it allegedly received a “threat” by email which reportedly read, “You people are asking for trouble.”

Reaction on Twitter was swift:

And for those who still insists leftists are peace-loving, consider this.  There are those who are now advocating using acid against Farage and others.

The whole ugly incident puts me in mind of Captain John Parker’s statement to his Minute Men on Lexington Green on April 19, 1775: “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
