"Speaking of urban agony... if folks on the right were truly Macchiavellian, they’d be joining the critics of stop-and-frisk."

"The big Blue enclaves are where the crime and racial strife mostly are; letting those get worse would probably benefit folks on the right. Luckily for the hipsters, righties are too principled for that sort of 'heightening the contradictions' thing."

Hipsters don't benefit from those with principles around them because hipsters assume principled people are only doing it for irony.

People on the right are against stop and frisk. They aren't there. The stoppers and friskers are in NYC which primarily consists of a lot of people who drove out the people on the right.

I think libertarians are against stop and frisk. Law and order types are not necessarily against stop and frisk.
