When Peace Thugs Attack

Zombietime does a good job of characterizing some of the uglier sides of the protest culture. Eric Dondero at the Libertarian Republican had video of a woman getting assaulted by some Trostkyite in a beret. And now, the Gathering of Eagles has an account posted of how a family got attacked by some unruly peace protesters:

Seeing the escalating tension across the street, the veteran and his wife crossed over, leaving their three youngest children on the other side for safety while they went to retrieve their eldest son. Two of the female ‘peace’ protesters then attacked the veteran’s wife. When the veteran pulled one of those attackers off his wife he was jumped by four or five of the ‘peace’ people and knocked to the ground where they held him while beating him and smashing his eyeglasses.

The fact that peace and love people would resort to violence seems quite hypocritical. Obviously, protests are a necessary part of the democratic process, but resorting to violence falls on that slippery slope. If anyone wants to partake in the "glory" of where politics and violence mesh, swing by Iraq where kidnappings, assassinations, and extortion are rife within the political apparatus. So that's why I won't even support a face-punching of a group with a despicable ideology such as the Westboro Baptist Church.



What current event can't be explained with a Megadeth tune

LT,

I'm not saying the incident (or confrontation) didn't happen but what evidence exists to conform to the GoE story-line.

No arrests were made. why? What did the responding officers find upon investigating? What didn't they find to back the claims of the story? It's my experience when dealing with people (especially those involved in a fight) that the other guy always started it.

I'm just asking. Propaganda is a terrible thing.

Yeah they always say the other buy started it. Why would they say anything else? I have a heard time believing that a vet with his wife and kids would start a confrontation with possibly loony protesters...

Gene,

Yeah the story may be suspect, but I just love the word peace thugs.

What do you mean I hurt your feelings? I didn't know you had any feelings.

A post including Megadeth with a "hippies" tag? You are an original.

IMO, this place needs more Megadeth. Sorry LT.

In the Midwest, we don't get that many guys who get naked and inflate their ball sacks to make a statement about the war, gay rights, or whatever. We're behind the times.

Although there are such tings as lawnmower drill teams
