    I can't say that surprises me at all. Anti-war protests are a bunch of hysterical lefties. Lefties are more prone to violence than normal people. They are the same ilk as the Anti Globalization crowd - the 'great unwashed'... unemployed, lazy bastards who want other people have without actually working for it.

    The anti war protests were much bigger than the Tea party gatherings.

    The media just did not cover the Anti war rallies like they do the the party gigs

    Interesting... particularly since there are no 'official' figures for TEA Parties. The big one in DC, even the DC police wouldn't give a figure. I know this, because I asked them.

    please show where the democratic party elected loons who wanted to burn things down, called U.S. government 'gangsta government' or talked about shedding the blood of 'tyrants'.

    until then, don't bother b/c the position of rightwingnut 'newsbusters' has as much validity to me as something from D.U. would have for you. The difference is that I would acknowledge that DU would be the more extremist pov.

    you pretend that 'newsbusters' is a legitimate commentator.

    I wish I could find a reliable source for this study, news busters is a propoganda site.

    But the point that this article makes bears nothing on the concerns that have been voiced by people of pending violence.

    Most are not concerned that the violence will break out at a rally, they are concerned the tennor of teh rethoric will incite someone like McVeigh to do something. McVeigh was whipped into his frenzy at gun shows. He didnt bomb a gun show did he?

    no real confrontation? Could you elaborate what that is?

    I assume you're talking more than just resisting assaults by SEIU thugs and biting off fingers by the same group.

    Or are we getting all excited about getting to the point where libs get to turn the dogs loose and the firehoses on peaceful protesters? Oh boy! I can't wait! :rolleyes:
