    Nothing says fun like puking on a bus. Except when it's urinating in the parks near Wall Street when you're protesting those people too.

    They could be either party or neither. Truth is you don't know. You just assume any one who does anything that you don't like is an extreme leftist.

    If you want a good laugh, read the lunatic rantings of the protestors.

    https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/20...6/18753651.php

    Here is what they want:

    We demand that Google give three billion dollars to an anarchist organization of our choosing. This money will then be used to create autonomous, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist communities throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. In these communities, whether in San Francisco or in the woods, no one will ever have to pay rent and housing will be free. With this three billion from Google, we will solve the housing crisis in the Bay Area and prove to the world that an anarchist world is not only possible but in fact irrepressible. If given the chance, most humans will pursue a course towards increased freedom and greater liberty. As it stands, only people like Kevin Rose are given the opportunity to reshape their world, and look at what they do with those opportunities.

    What? Are you for real? Show me ANY examples of a conservative group destroying property, or defaming people outside their home in this fashion....

    Nope, this is the extreme left, and you are defending them.

    They sound like spoiled children...."I want what you have so give it to me or I'll destroy you!"

    There is no shortage of instances where right leaning people found plenty of ways to protest certain people moving into their towns and neighborhoods.

    In addition to sounding like petulant children, they also sound certifiably insane.

    Protest and assembly are valued and hallowed right of the individual. There was nothing wrong here.

    No? Did this mob have a permit to protest in front of the guy's house?

    Do you agree that defaming someone in their neighborhood is a positive way to do things?

    What makes you believe that anything like this is acceptable in a civilized society?

    Then it should be easy for you to provide some examples, as I asked for....This is only you giving a hollow response.
