Just $35 to make yourself into a target. Sweet deal
ICBC will evidently be charging willing customers $35 for the privelege of making themselves targets for thugs and vandals with new Olympic-brand license plates.
Of course it’s insane that there are people out there who would damage private property just because someone makes a statement in favor of the Olympics. It’s insane that there are people out there who actually believe that Olympics supporters are by default elitist jerks who hate poor people. But, that’s pretty much where Olympics protesters are at.
I heard one of the Olympics opponents today on the radio explaining how vandalism shouldn’t be acceptable, but that he understood where the motivation was coming from if such acts were to take place – TRANSLATION: “You will never have me on record encouraging criminal activity, but if self-righteous goons allied with my cause break someone’s windshield for displaying a little Olympic spirit, that’s what the victims get for being enemies of the people.”
