The way you tell it there is no such thing as "passive" resistance. (btw~passive resistance is just another word for peaceful resistance)

    As far as the police being blocked. The only way that they were blocked is by a passive group which did nothing to harm them. It may be against the law, but the way in which it was done was peaceful. Whether you want to admit it or not.
    Sorry, but there is nothing "peaceful" about blocking a cop. It is a provocative act, which can only escalate.

    "Peaceful" is to get the **** out of the way when told to move.

    The police are clearly not "blocked" and being prevented "from leaving". There are clearly many gaps in the crowd where they could walk through. And seriously what are a bunch of college students gonna do? The cops have the batons and weapons...

    Are you serious? There is nothing peaceful about blocking a cop. I think sitting down infront of a group of police officers and not fighting or anything is peaceful.

    Do you know what "civil disobediance" is? Do you know what "passive resistance" means? Put the two together and you have what was done at UC Davis. And both are a part of protesting. Even MLK and Ghandi did these things.

    Call it "civil". Call it "passive". Neither is "peaceful". which is what I addressed. When a cop tells you to move, and you do not, it is no longer peaceful, as some force now must be applied to move you.

    That's a scary definition of not being peaceful

    That's a rather strange definition of "non-peaceful."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Scary and strange? While I agree with you I really do not think that those words go far enough to describe his statement. More like "bat guano crazy".
