Ok so.......... It was a show of defiance instead of a protest?

There is a running joke happening on this site right now isn't there?

LoL , no , no running joke.....

i guess by definition you could call it a protest........however the way the whole "well they can protest at a funeral" is being used as a line for "well they are just being hypocrites" to me is disengenous....

1. They didnt disrupt anything
2. Their display of "protest" didnt lead to things being trashed

Again , you look at how some of these protests are done lately here in the US because "people feel opressed or scared"

And then you look at what happened in france where within a few days 5 million people in france stood in a show of solidarity , no businesses burned down, no places robbed, nothing was torn to shreds......and EVERYONE was welcome, white , black , yellow purple, even people of the same religion of those who committed the massacre, ALL STOOD AS ONE!

THATS how you protest, THATS how you stand and effect change, THAT protest was done out of love and malice towards none....

I just see glaring difference in whats sincere, and whats just there to make a fuss.......

That being said I hope this one at the station turns out awesome for the protesters and something actually gets done

Before they agree with me when i said that im sure by definition it was a protest?

Isnt that exactly what you just did by posting it? Confirming what i already said?

Dont you think its insulting other people , that if they agree with me they must be "clumsy" , in other words calling them stupid?

Wow man youre unbelievable

Going to go ahead and terminate this discussion , its clear your motives are more for agitation then real discussion

Ok I wasnt going to respond but now youre attacking another member for no reason.....

You know it COULD be because most of the threads people respond too are in their interest range, which means logically the same people would continue to have debates with each other in differen forums.......

Thats like saying "Why are you following me!" to someone you see in a punk bar when they share the same taste in music as you......

unbelievable

Because they drew the idiots out of the woodwork. People who were on the fence are now showing up. They wanted to make a huge impact on the problem. Welcome to the machine. Genius.
