Why protestors suck
From Get Out of My Town!, about the September 2002 protests against the World Bank in Washington, D.C.:
What I also saw were banners painted with blatant obscenities, toted by scruffy and pierced protestors hurling equally profane slogans any time the red light on the camera went on. I saw young men dressed as ninjas, faces obscured, throwing fists, containers and insults at police officers. I recall seeing several of these protesters attempt to kick their way to freedom once arrested using the steel-tipped toe-cap that comes equipped with their $140 Timberland Boots.
There's more from "MeanDean", and it gets better.
Ever since the protesters against the World Trade Organization in Seattle during November and December, 1999 succeeded in showing me how utterly selfish, banal, stupid and violent they were, my opinion of their entire message has steadily dropped. Yes, that's a blanket statement - my exact intention.
I don't want to live in a country where the laws of the land are decided by people who would just as soon smash your windows and physically stop you from meeting who you will than engage you in debate or conversation.
