RE: What is the deal with the outrageous bias against protestors?
I love protest. I think it is the original, core value of what being an American is. Don't believe me? Go throw a box of tea in the Boston Harbor, you'll feel great after. But protest has to be law abiding and peaceful. No paint throwing. No rock throwing. And that goes for the pigs too.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
