The culprits also wrote anti-voting sentiments on the walls of the library,

Pet peeve:  you enterprising journalists can't be bothered to tell me precisely what was written??  Also unmentioned in the video.

I'm pretty sure that targeting a library with anti-voting sentiments indicates that it is some sort of red hattery.

There's either way too much mercury in those hats, or not nearly enough.  I can't decide.

That is an incredible building. If anyone is in the city and if it's open, I highly recommend it.

Duh, isn't it obvious: anti-voting! You know, like, um, "Fark all of the things!"

It's more fun to hang out infront of the scientology building and stare inside.  Eventually someone will go outside to talk to you.

Probably words that are no longer able to be uttered or reported on under the current political and social gag orders.

Since they couldn't be bothered to  mention it in TFA I'm pretty sure it was anti-Trump . It's not that hard to figure out .

Probably true.   Austin is a blue area surrounded by a sea of red.   If it was pro-Trump, or anti-Biden, I'm sure it would have been mentioned.   Since they didn't mention it, it's likely that most Austinites approve of the message, but not the fact that it was graffiti, so that's why it's not mentioned what the actual message was.  You don't publicize it when "your side" does something wrong if you can help it.

However, I'm open to the idea that it might have been the other way.   I

Kxan wants to protect Europeans, they claim, from data harvesting during a political season so if you can't see political ads you can't read any stories.

I dunno man according to the polls I've been seeing they should be encouraging as many folks to vote as they can. I mean Im pretty constitutional libertarian in my vies but damn if I wont do whatever it takes to get rid of Captn. Clownshoes and his cohorts

Thanks for the links. I can't believe I missed the whole Red X thing but honestly I saw absolutely nothing about it online or on TV. Will definitely spread the word to people I know.

Leo Kicks ass. I highly suggest folks go check out his covers even if you dont like metal he has some surprisingly good covers. One of my faves is his Sultans of Swing remake.

Will it ultimately escalate to the vandals taking the handles?

It would be pro-trump since it was anti-voting.

Why do they keep blaming the Vandals? It could have been the Ostrogoths or the Visigoths! Unless they have proof it was the Vandels they should really stop spouting nonsense!

This is probably from the Mike Ramos Brigade.

Mike's mom isn't pleased with them, to say the least.

I think it's more of a local issue. We have several groups sparring here.

What possible idea would lead you to think it was anti-Trump?

Red, although for centuries has been the color of the *LEFT*, was gaslighted into being the white-wing color. Given how liberal Austin is, I have 99% confidence it was MAGAidiots, who don't  read, anyway.

This conversation is why, if you're the "journalist", you put it in the damn story. It's clearly a pertinent fact and the thing that people web interested in.

Maybe because they're a "journalist", and not an actual reporter, and wouldn't know the five W's if they bit them.
