Amoeba like them… Anti-G8 protest
I am posting this here, for two reasons. Brian’s server on kronnews has some kind of issue, right now, that leads to an “Internal Server Error”, and secondly, it’s something that concerns us all. Right, left, up, down, there’s no honor in complacency. Here is the comment on Brian’s coverage of the G8 protests and the severe beating of a police officer:
Whow, an “Anti-Capitalist” insisting on his skewed idea of copyright. That’s just rich!
When amoeba like these protesters start vandalizing a city, it’s more than just mischief or protest, it’s a declaration of war. It’s my city, as well. I said it past the election, and I say it now — there’s no honor in complacency. Wether it’s an Administration using illegal force in Iraq or a bunch of wannabe hardcore kids using force against buildings and police officers in the city, it’s wrong. And unless we take a stand against it, use all means and approaches legally available to us, we’re no better. Protesting Iraq? Definitely! Letting the attacks on a cop slide, because he somehow represents something we associate with being wrong? Never!
Screwing with my city screws with me. “But you don’t cover the protesters being beaten”, cries the “anarchist”. You know what? I’ll be more than happy to cover protesters being beaten and take a stance against police if I must. Morons who took to destroy parts of my city, and either participated in or stood by tolerating the violence against cops and objects, I fathom need a good beating and more. Walking past someone throwing stones, bottles, colored goo, or other things at houses, cars, and cops, without standing up and confronting the attcker makes you one of them. There’s no difference in complacently tolerating the war by not standing up against it, and tolerating this behavior. You’re no better than them, and your being beaten is perfectly OK in my book. Actually, if anything, I think it’s a bit mild of a reaction.
