your letting a small group of extremist people influence your vote? they had nothing to do with the presidential candidates... **sigh**
its like, hey! how bout simply just escorting them out of the way? no? ooooooookay then. lets just grab on and force them...
I really don`t support Palin, but this is NOT the way to go about protesting. Making the whole world think that liberals/democrats are idiots is not helping your cause...
Wow... it realy is true that "perception is reality". In this case Apple 18`s perception is that the Police actually "Attacked" the protesters.
I am seriously not trying to bash you, I am simply in shock at how you can perceive them to be on the "attack". Your reasoning of these events falls short of practical and reasonable.
I urge you for the sake of my sanity and perhaps yours, to take a good look and try to use some objectivity when watching the video.
oh yeapalin is an idiotthat is all
p.p.si have no problem with mccain but that idiot palin just kinda ruins it, if you say otherwise you are probably some horny dude with h
Some peeps oughta cool the engines.
The trouble with politics is its too easy to make up labels like "democracy" and "socialism" to describe societies. If one of the Founding Fathers were to come forward in time and see the USA today, he would consider it a Socialist State because of the all-pervasive government involvement in almost every level of daily life. Its entirely possible for people to live in a dictatorship or communist state while still believing they are living in a democracy. The question of just *how far* your country has deviated from *real* democracy is one for each individual to answer for themselves, but *most* democracies today are very close to Lenin`s "perfect state", so its not an easy call.
on topic, good job guys i do think it was alittle bit of police brutality but also, dont stand in the middle of the rode guys! silly mc nuffle wuffles.
I have noticed this trend is becoming way more popular then it needs to be. Douche comming from all over the united states to show support for Obama or to heckle the McCain campain in such innapropriate way that it may actually look bad for Obama.
John McCain should just give up already. The Republicans have lost. I`m canadian, I know what i`m talking about.
so this protest was in America, right?
Unless the protesters were all British or Irish, they probably should have realized what direction that traffic moved in...
On another note those are some pretty badass policemen...
rofl, what`s it like to not have a clue?
Palin should have leaned out the window and flipped them off. That would have been priceless.
No police brutality there, They just shoved them out of the way. Asking Hippies to be nice is like asking a dog not to lick his balls.
"Hey Real Protester People! See what we did? You think we`re cool now, right?"
in upstate new york...
350 miles away from washington dc...
and they marched on the street holding up traffic. then they got to some mall complex and started a fight with the cops (on video) and they started yelling "SHAME ON YOU! SHAME ON YOU!" when the cops arrested him, and "LET HIM GO!"
they protested the war AT the police. stupid people
"i think is healthy tbh, being able to express you opinio in a way that you know will get you noticed.. but without causing harm to anyone, those types of protests are good for people..."
The way I interpreted that was that she believed that although this protest may have been wrong, stunts similar to this that get you media coverage and attention (or even a post on IAB.com) are perfectly healthy.
I disagreed with her on this and that`s why I posted, but I`m glad we both agree that this video and the people in it are idiots.
Not the right to be an non-nice individual or an idiot. Many confuse this.
There are limits to freedom of expression, they have NEVER included denying someone else`s freedoms, like the freedom to travel freely. They could have protested at a close by spot and called their local media, it would have made the news.
All protestors? cos some of them just get their point across, and dont do poo like this... (getting in the way of a motorcade).Which i think is healthy tbh, being able to express you opinio in a way that you know will get you noticed.. but without causing harm to anyone, those types of protests are good for people...writing letters to the government just doesnt work.but this went too far.
Ahh got confused there fascists were usually alot more violent they also had more then 10 ppl though.
Umm I`m pretty sure there was never a time when you could legally obstruct traffic without permission from the town.
Yet mabie if they had more people they`d get her to stop, and they`d rush the van and take her out once and for all.
There were only like 2 cops there.
Republicans are still morons though. All of them. There`s no doubt about it.
That video makes me even more proud of the fact that I`m a republican.
No, this is what it looks like when you impede traffic and cause harm to others. Those cops don`t know what you`re up to. They don`t know if you have a hand gun or a molotov roostertail, and you`re about to stop a vice presidential candidates motorcade???? What`d you expect to happen, morons? The police were just assigned to get said person from point A. to point B., they don`t give a poo who it is or what your opinions are on the matter. They just have a job to do like anybody else, and they`re going to do it.
Where did our liberals go and who are these nazi wannabe`s who replaced them?
If that makes sense...not that i agree with what they were saying or doing.
There`s pushing the envelope of democracy, and then there`s just shredding the damn envelope to shreds.
democracy direct need to take a course in `protesting 101.`
