    Is “caring and thoughtful people” code words for professional protestors?

    Do you mean newly unemployed teachers, Frank?

    No. Unlike the right-wing groups that have to use all sorts of code words to disguise their appeals to racism, homophobia, etc…, we just try to say what we mean.

    Rob,
    Give me a break, I almost spit out my coffee when I saw that. The leftwing parses terms all the time to meet the current politically correct meanings. When one term falls out of fashion due to it not being true, the left renames it to fit their current talking points. An example is global warming, then climate change, then climate disruption, etc. Do you remember the meaning of is?

    It would be interesting to interview each protestor and see who is buttering their bread.

    I’m genuinely sorry that you are so uninformed, my friend.

    Thanks Frank for showing that you’re unfamiliar with people exercising their First Amendment Right to Free Speech and see it as some sort of bread-buttering manipulative conspiracy plot.

    Jack,
    Maybe I’m being cynical but I have seen evidence of people being paid to protest as the leftwing advocacy group issues them the signs to hold and told what to say. That to me is not legitimate protest.

    What one sees and how one interprets it is subjective at best and therefore an opinion. What ones sees requires facts, from a number of participants, to provide a context of the action or event before it can be considered evidence.

    Jack,
    Good point, but when those participants hide the facts, then it is difficult for the truth to be found.

    Frank, are you referring to the Koch funded and orchestrated tea party rallies and protests?
