A Musing on Counter-Protests

(As posted earlier on Steve the Pirate)

This little blurb came to mind while surfing around the Zombietime site.

I read a little bit this morning about a prolife Walk for Life organized in San Fransisco about a month ago. As you can read here, left-wingers organized and begged the “people and workers of San Fransisco and the Bay Area to rise up and completely stop them in their tracks and completely stop their march.”

I know a thing or two about counterprotesting as I’m an active member of the right-wing counterprotest group Protest Warrior. However, there are some stark differences in the tactics the right use in comparison to the left.

As you can see, the leftists-at least those depicted on Zombietime and in their own forum-don’t believe in free speech. Right-wingers and religious people don’t have the right to organize and peacefully march in support of their own causes. This, my friends, is fascism at the core. The leftists in this case are using the same tactics they accuse the president of doing: denying the rights of someone to speak their mind regardless of who agrees with it.

We’re told from the top-down in Protest Warrior that our job is to accompany the march to present a different point of view. We are not allowed to disrupt, stop, or try and derail any event. We are simply there to show the leftists that they are not the moral majority, and we take a little pride in watching the reactions of the protestors when their moral house of cards is totally blown away by truth.

Here we see yet another stark difference between right and left: we believe in free speech, they believe in free speech as long as you stay in lock-step with their beliefs.
