Irresponsible protesting


Atreides

Recommended Posts

I'm sure most of you have read about the drunken Santas that apparently wanted to "protest the commercialization of Christmas."

 

What pisses me off is if you have a message, say it but don't make trouble for people. If you want to protest, don't block traffic (which affects everyone) by lying across the ground etc. If you want to burn yourself to make a statement fine, that's your choice. As soon as you do stupid things involving other people that piss them off, don't be surprised if they rip your head of.

 

I suppose vigilanteism and assault is bad (dragging/kicking the road blockers off the street) but damn, they still have the gall to pretend to be the victims.

Great Quote, Wintersun.

 

At first I thought they were disgruntled Christians, although stealing beer and soda doesn't sound very Christian. I read the article, though, and the only group they supposedly represent was "Santarchy?" What the hell?

Drunken riots are the best :blink:

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

Yes, for the most part but then there is Viesha. Get 20,000 students wanting to party, unrestricted beer drinking an sload of bars, then add in overreacting police officiers you have yourself a riot in the making. It just wouldn't take too much.

 

Viesha has been known for riots and the occasional murder. Fun stuff.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

--John Stewart Mill--

 

"Victory was for those willing to fight and die. Intellectuals could theorize until they sucked their thumbs right off their hands, but in the real world, power still flowed from the barrel of a gun.....you could send in your bleeding-heart do-gooders, you could hold hands and pray and sing hootenanny songs and invoke the great gods CNN and BBC, but the only way to finally open the roads to the big-eyed babies was to show up with more guns."

On year during Halloween my friends and I were among the many to get tear gassed on 6th street. 6th street is like the drunken disney world here in Austin.

People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

All I know is Santarchs is the coolest name for a prostesting group of Santas against Christmas evar!

 

Also we never get any good riots up here in the foothills, we're always too busy being nice to each other and such, what with the hippies from SoCal that moved up here when it got all populated, and the Bible Thumping Conservatives. It's amazing really, the way we coexist considering the split is about 50/50, nobody getting upset at each other, everyone just being decent and such. They way peoples on the internet and the TV talk, we should be at each other's throats.

 

Also, Grass Valley/Nevada City has the highest concentration of Bookstores in the US. Knowledge for everyone! Except the rednecks, because they're kind of crazy.
