    I don't like Obama's policies, but you won't find me invading his church on Easter, or his daughters graduation ceremonies. because that (just like this) would be classless, crude, and indicative of narcissism.
    The special olympics are like a church now? While in public?

    the special olympics deserve not to be invaded by a bunch of boors, because they are their own occasion to mark the courage and work that those who begin with handicaps demonstrate to achieve remarkable feats.

    yes, it is like protesting during church. it would be like if anti-war protestors had showed up to disrupt and yell at bush during medal-pinning ceremonies. it's taking something that's not about you or what you are yelling about and insisting that it become about you. It spits in the face of the competitors because it tells them that their achievements and struggles aren't worth even having a single day in the sun, the union protestors must have everything.

    1. they were there to protest walker.

    2. them showing up THERE to protest walker meant they were protesting at the special olympics

    3. you don't ****ing protest at the special olympics - it is wrong, it is crude, it is narcissistic, those people deserve better than to have their day of achievement hijacked by the vitriol-spewing partisans of either side. this is a lower order of magnitude - but the same kind - of protest that the westboro baptist folks engage in; taking something that is very explicitely about honoring others and trying to make it about you and your anger instead.



    i'll admit, I'm surprised. i really didn't expect everyone to immediately be willing to screw over those with special needs to defend public unions. i guess it's true what they say about who owns who.

    It's okay, when protesters are protesting the approved cause...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Scott Walker is an awful man? Seems a bit harsh.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Bingo. Thats really all there is to it.

    Yea they were protesting at a special olympic event, sooooooooo whatt?

    3. you don't ****ing protest at the special olympics - it is wrong, it is crude, it is narcissistic,
    How is it wrong? What would make it wrong if they were being hectic, violent, yelling, throwing "offensive slurs" around. No they didnt do that. They dressed up like zombies and stood there. How is that wrong? Crude? Offensive? Narcissistic?

    those people deserve better than to have their day of achievement hijacked by the vitriol-spewing partisans of either side.
    I really dont think it was hijacked at all... Still got their events and what not. Now it would be "hijacked" if it got shut down because of this protest. Saying that the "Maciever News Service" is just about the only coverage of this even i really dont think it was "hijacked".

    this is a lower order of magnitude - but the same kind - of protest that the westboro baptist folks engage in;
    Naa not at all...Terrible, absolutely pitiful comparison.
    Westsboro: "God hates Retards"
    Union Protest: "Down with Walker we want our rights back"



    taking something that is very explicitely about honoring others and trying to make it about you and your anger instead.
    Standing there=making it all about yourself?



    i'll admit, I'm surprised. i really didn't expect everyone to immediately be willing to screw over
    Wait how did they "screw them over"? Really not seeing any screwing.

    those with special needs to defend public unions. i guess it's true what they say about who owns who.
    Lame

    awesome. so when people show up to disrupt the Obama's childrens' school graduation to scream about how her father is a socialist, you're going to be A-Ok with that.



    that is not all there is too it.


    I'll admit, I don't really know how to respond to the reaction here. It's like I posted Nancy Pelosi beating a three year old and the response was the three year old shouldn't have gotten in her way.
