    Or are they hiding behind that moniker so they can just push their own agenda of control?
    We report you decide.

    Peace activists use violence to shut down opposing conservatives from speaking.


    Free speech?
    Non violence?
    Arent those suppose to be values the "peace activists" believe in?

    Ahhhh, the irony of it all. :)

    If you've been to P.I. you'd get a clear picture of your question.
    Seriously

    they are called "peace ACTIVISTS", not peace passifists.

    Standing up against a stupid idiotic counterproductive war that is driving this country and the world to the brink of hell is not something to be taken lightly.

    Can you supply some examples (articles) of where people are working as peace activist that have been violent and tried to restrict free speech? I'm just want to get this in the right context first.

    the peace activists assaulting Rove for speaking on a campus event were hardly "peaceful"

    let's tarnish the reputation and motivations of many for the actions of a few, shall we?

    Let's put all those people who are actively involved in seeking peace in this world in the same bucket as young overzealous punks who assaulted Karl Rove.

    And while we're at it, let's just say that everyone who is pro-life is in the same bucket as those who kill abortion doctors.

    What makes you think they were peace activists? Not all protesters are peace activist.

    Are you missing a link or something? WTF are you talking about? I guess when you and all your buddies who get their talking points from the same talk shows know what you're talking about but I missed my morning "what will the right-wing try to distract their lemmings with today" radio listening.
