Anonymous letter writer at alternative newspaper takes credit for slashing tires on 4 McClatchy newspaper delivery trucks

South Puget Sound IndyMedia posted a letter from an anonymous writer who took credit for slashing the tires on four delivery vans belonging to The Olympian newspaper.
On the evening of October 6th, we disabled four Olympian delivery vans by slashing their tires. The Olympian newspaper is responsible for many crimes. We will not be able to list all of them here, but we will try.
The letter goes on for several rambling paragraphs listing the offenses of The Olympian, which include being "a willing mouthpiece" for the police department, supporting a developer (TriWay Enterprises) in a downtown project, and printing pro-government propaganda supporting the Iraq war. (That last one cracked me up.) The letter expresses support for something called the "Nihilist Assault Group," which sounds to me like an anarchist group.

Olympia Washington is the home turf of Evergreen State College. Primarily famous as the fertile nursery for such fine ambasadors abroad as Rachel Corry.

Here is a photo of dear Rachel teaching young Palestinian children how to love and get along by burning an American flag.

You have got to know that anyone loony enough to consider a McClatchy paper reactionary pretty well defines "loony".

Anonymous -- the part about McClatchy newspapers printing pro-Bush (pro-government) propaganda cracked me up.

These are the kind of people that believe this is acceptable no matter what. You would be wasting your time to try to understand it and it is a waste of space to give them any kind of format to express their warped views and actions. These "loons" are a drag on our country and they obviously have no intention of ever being civilized enough to live amongst us.
