Now, I’m all for free speech, it’s the absolute cornerstone upon which this great experiment in democracy is built, but in This Bit from the UK’s Telegraph, it seems that Anti-Bush supporters are protesting delegates going to Broadway plays.
A snip from the article…
A more immediate threat to delegates came in the form of a planned protest outside Broadway theatres last night, where activists have promised to picket and disrupt shows attended by the Republicans.
Now I gotta know, what kind of asshole do you have to be to protest people sightseeing? People that spend their own hard earned money to do things that they want to do, and because of their politics, you, asshole protestor, want to interfere. Well y’know what, just you fuck right off.
You are not, by any stretch of the imagination, engaging in meaningful political discourse, or peaceful protest. You’re harassing innocent people walking down the street. You’ve sunk to being discriminatory hate mongers, no better than what you claim to be against.
I’m all for protests, and freedom of speech, but come on, this is just stupid.
