In my teenage years and when I am really frustrated I go back to the insanity of the beliefs I had in my youth. From singing every word of Rage Against the Machine, Rancid, and Bad Religion, pretending to be an Anarchist; knowing some how it was cool. There was passion and a connection that punk rock brought with no direction.
I am not saying protesting is a waste of time because our country was founded on protesting and a peaceful protest done with a goal can change things.
This crap makes me wonder why more democrats do not take a closer look at the ideologies that have caused more destruction and terror throughout the history of the world. It makes me wonder if people think! It makes me wonder if protesting has ever changed anything in the past 30 years.
Do you have any examples?
“One such person, after apparently being accused of racism by a protester, defiantly yells back “I’m a racist! F**k you! F**k everyone!” Another, meanwhile, says incredulously about the organizers of the protest, “You’re not even from Chicago! What are you doing here?”
Intercut with the clips are shots of breathtaking displays of public disorderliness, including protesters swarming the Chicago subway (some of whom are wearing black scarfs over their faces), and screaming obscenities at the police. Others go so far as blocking cars with street signs while hooting.
Perhaps most hilarious of all, there are a few shots of members of the National Lawyers’ Guild (an organization which was noted for being a communist front group as far back as the 1950′s) observing the proceedings, and describing the protesters as their “clients” even though these protesters are, presumably, paying them precisely no money.”
