Re: “State Rep: Protesters Were "A Group of Malcontent Thugs Who Were Likely Paid"

I was down at the state house and I saw this bussing they're talking about. One car I saw was loaded up with upwards of four people! Can you imagine! When I confronted them about why they needed to pile up like clown car and they tried to dismiss me saying, "they weren't sure about the parking situation" and "we always carpool to these kinds of things," but I wasn't buying it. Next they'll want me to believe that for the past 4 years they've been building some kind of network of like-minded individuals who have agreed to travel to these types of events together. Absurd!

And on the subject of payment - there's no doubt in my mind that each and every protester was paid to be there. Surely, in the 2 million person population that is within easy driving distance of the state house, there can't be 250 individuals who would dive for 20 minutes to come and voice their displeasure. Only a lackey would do something like that.

I think Speciale is 100% correct - if democrats do something then it's perfectly fine, but if republicans do it suddenly people are all up in arms! I don't just don't understand why, when this kind of inevitable legislation is happening, people have to yell and get angry. Just quietly wait until it's over and hope that things will change all on their own. Activism is just so unsightly.
