Weird and violent acts by the fringe right, such as the smashing of the windows at Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' office, are spreading across the country in the wake of the health-care vote.

Max Fisher of the Atlantic Wire notes:

As conservative anger over the passage of health care reform seeps into the furthest reaches of the right wing, pundits are struggling to comprehend the wave of small-scale violence against Democratic members of Congress. Thankfully, none of the violence has been anything approaching fatal. Rather, it is restricted to vicious but unfulfilled threats and incidents of bricks thrown through windows. But, for Congressmen concerned about their family's safety, it is worrisome nevertheless.


Fisher has a rundown of violent acts here.
