    My Dad is handicapped... My Dad isn't offended. I am not offended, stop character attacking me. I don't stand for disrespecting and offending handicapped people because they are handicapped, and that is not what happened in is situation. The protest wasn't intended to insult handicapped people, nor is there any evidence that anybody participating in the Olympics were offended. If they were offended, that would be different.

    1) The protesters were protesting Walker, NOT the Special Olympics. Any accusation opposite of that is idiotic partisan hackery.
    2) Just because they were allowed to do this, under the law, doesn't mean that this was an OK thing to do. It wasn't and WAS disrespectful to those participating. There is a time and a place for things, and this wasn't it. Any accusation opposite of that and using the 1st Amendment to defend the morality of doing this is idiotic partisan hackery.

    There. That about sums it up. Let's see which people fall into one of these two categories.
    My only issue is, who was offended.... other than people who don't like unions? Nobody has posted any official complaints from the Special Olympics and I haven't seen the participants speaking out.

    LOL... then we're all scumbags. The only reason we are having this discussion is because we decided to allow the event and protest to be politicized.

    No. We "are not all scumbags". The scumbags were the protestors. Even a few libs admitted it.

    Just because you're ignorant of the fact that NOONE crashed the Special Olympics, doesn't mean that you have to write off the wall things, in response to my post, about what people can or should do. I never said anything that one could misconstrue to be about what one could or should protest.

    You, and the other 'usual suspects', just saw an opportunity for a union bash and blindly jumped in. There were no Special Olympics being held on the Wisconsin capitol steps to be crashed, protested or interrupted in any way, shape or form.

    annnnd.......the people who were protesting were UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN STUDENTS, not some evil, disgusting union thugs that some were referring to in this thread.



    *by the way I let your 'retard' slur pass but I'm surprised that some of your right leaning buddies didn't speak up, like they did when some of my left leaning buddies have used it in the past...
    I honestly see it as union bashing too... I have read the phrase "union thugs" and "union thuggery" so many times in this thread. That's the new phrase. It might be added in the 2010 dictionary for as much as people use it and try to make us associate thugs and thuggery with unions.

    Retards thinking it is OK to use a Special Olympics event to protest their own 'special' cause are the same kind of scumbags that go to military funerals and protest gays. Period. There has been a kneejerk defense of their actions since this thread started. First they defended unions for doing it, then when others actually bothered to READ what they were posting about they claimed it was OK because it was students not Unions. It doesnt matter WHO was doing it. There are appropriate venues for causes. Making an asshole of themselves at a Special Olympics ceremony speaks voilumes about the protesters and anyone that would support them. Clear enough for you?

    No there was an event to show honor to those who participate in special olympics. It was still an event for special olympics

    hyperbole much?
    Another words they don't want this to undermine the Special Olympics so they ignore the scumbags
