Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Predictably, people on the left are defending 'milkshaking'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Yesterday I wrote about the spate of milkshake assaults taking place in the UK. I predicted this would be the kind of stunt the left would find irresistible and, sure enough, that seems to be the case. The Guardian published an opinion piece titled “This Milkshake Spring isn’t political violence – it’s political theatre.”

Chucking a milkshake is not political violence at all; it is political theatre, of a kind shared down the ages and across countries…

As for Farage, he gets a programme on LBC, and a near-nightly showing on the BBC. Neither a cabinet minister nor, despite all his attempts, an MP, he has appeared on Question Time 33 times, the last just a few days ago.

So in comes the milkshake, to reduce men of pomp to figures of ridicule. For once, the news-satire shows won’t feature Farage as a guest of honour but as a butt of humour. The milkshake knows no triangulation. It has no truck with “legitimate concerns”.
