The Daily show yesterday did a great job of showing how both the left and the right portray the protest to their own agendas. I think I posted the video at one point. Fox slammed the union protesters but praised the tea party for pretty much the same thing. MSNBC did the opposite. Protests are very american. Its what makes us different than most of the world. We can have these without people getting hurt or killed most of the time. Protesting is patriotic imo, its what the troops fight for. Your right to protest the war, protest the taxes, protest watever. Well minus military funerals. Those westboro baptist F*cks should be shot. No one go to anyones funeral looking to cause problems, let alone a military funeral with a family morning a tragic ending of their loved one.
