    It sounds like you are talking about counter protesters for the most part? They have as much right to protest as the original protesters.

    Then why should it matter if the protesters were grassroots or organized by politicians or talk show pundits? When anti-war scum try to block military recruiters or shut down a recruiting office or when pro-illegals scum try to shout down a politician or cause a ruckus to get the event canceled or when liberal scum throw pie at a conservative media personality to make her leave, is it not intentional on their part and that it is clear that they know what they are doing? The types of protesters is irrelevant to their actions, there is no such thing as a fake protester unless that protester was or made paid to protest for something he or she didn't believe in and even then being paid to protest doesn't mean its fake, the constitution does not ban professional protesters.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Of course he would not consider that, nor would he even bother to look any further. Ignorance is bliss you know

    I agree....but does ANY protester have the right to prevent MY First Amendment rights?

    Only epic FAIL here is your inability to actually dispute. So instead you redirect the conversation. That is EPIC FAIL

    Why don't you spend less time with this dishonest attempt at impeaching people here with comments. You failed to do so with me, and it only proves just how pathetically poor your whole argument is. Either deal with the concept, or admit failure.

    You simply refuse to stay on topic & continue to try to steer this topic into your preferred direction.
    Why are you so afraid of the American voter hearing the truth?
