What does crystal noxk or knock?? mean? I keep hearing it referred to
in the media in reference to throwing bricks through windows of the Dems who voted for the HC bill. I tried Google but all I could find was a chenistry explaination, and I don't think that's what the media means.

5. Thanks for the link. My bad for no knowing a close spelling.
I'm 66 and probably should have heard of this but I never did.

6. No, the real problem is the media....
using the term and not disclosing the historical context.

10. Erm, not entirely
I think the media assumes that the audience has at least a cursory understanding of history; that they may not know exactly what events led up to Kristallnacht, but would know what it was.

Sad with Passover almost upon us and The Repukes are acting like brown shirts.

9. It was the first thing I thought of when I read about the breaking windows.
Being Jewish, I was totally freaked out...
