It would be in the headline rotation of ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, Headline News, PBS and BET.

But it is instead the lionized “immigration” marches so it will not make the news:

Close to 20 businesses were damaged after what started as a peaceful immigrants’ rights march in downtown Santa Cruz turned violent, requiring police to call other agencies for help, authorities said.

Police spokesman Zach Friend said an estimated 250 people started marching through the city around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

It was a harmonious but “unpermitted and unsanctioned event,” he said, until some in the crowd started breaking windows and spraying paint on retail shops that line the downtown corridor.

In other words the crowd was peaceful until it wasn’t.

We hear the left telling us how dangerous Tea Party members are, what will they say about their own?

I think it would be very interesting to call up congressmen who commented on the dangers of the tea party rallies to see what they have to say about events in Santa Cruz.
