The Sad State of Protesting
It’s kind of a long video and not all that interesting, but there is something funny about these anti-war protesters, from Saturday. As you can imagine, most people are behind the fencing, holding signs and chanting. But, on occasion it will cut to people being pulled off by the police. It’s more or less people who cross the barrier, no big deal. They go accross, then lay down to be arrested. What makes this funny is, all the protesters in the background start cheering as each person is pulled off. It’s like, "yeah, good for you, you stood up and got arrested for your beliefs! Oh me? Oh no, I’m not going to do it. I’m just going to stand back here and cheer. I don’t want to get arrested, I have to be in the office Monday morning.” Hippies from the 60’s put us to shame.
