Beat Them Into Submission

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 11:31 am

Peace protestors visit the Republican National Convention.

Oh, and they also threw bleach in the face of some delegates. One 80-year-old was taken to the hospital.



  1. I hope they’ll at least be charged with assault. Whenever I see pics like that, I wonder if the cameraman attempted to stop the crime.

    And it just struck me that, in common parlance, a “peace protester” might be semantically equivalent to a “war protester”. There’s some kind of symbolism there.

  2. A solution -containing bleach- was thrown at delegates. While still plenty wrong, it’s a long way from “they also threw bleach -in the face- of some delegates.” The 83 year-old was taken to hospital to get checked out, not for injuries received.

    It’s a damn shame these people couldn’t share the peace-loving, live-and-let-live (American to American) philosophy of The Republicans. Well, what can you do?
