John Doe is watching you

"If federal funds were required [they] could die for all I care. Let the parents get second jobs, let their state foot the bill or let them seek help from private charities.

[…]

I would hire a team of PIs and find out exactly how much their parents made and where they spent every nickel. Then I’d do everything possible to destroy their lives with that info." - Commenter at RedState blog

The rest of Dave Neiwert's "Watching the Bus Plunge" on Malkin and her quasi-vigilante pals is a must read. Then follow up with this post from Paul Krugman. And then remember that when Malkin directed the anger of her readers towards UC Santa Cruz she did that also under the premise that anyone or anything connected in some way to federal funds is to be "held accountable" by her fans.

Remember, "John Doe" is watching you for suspicious activity.

Old joke

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables. When he picked up a CD player a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching you."

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked out his flashlight and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the flashlight back on and began searching for more valuables.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires he heard, clear as a bell, "Jesus is watching you."

Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.

"Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot.
"Yep", the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you." The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who the heck are you?" "Moses" replied the bird. "Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of stupid people would name a parrot Moses?"

The bird promptly answered, "Probably the same kind of people that would name a Rotweiller Jesus..."
