Re: Values Added: Occupy, Inc. (David Roberts & Julian Sanchez)
When Tea Partying was all the rage, we sure seemed to hear alot about how the core motivations were protecting the constitution and stopping gov't overreach. Given what is becoming a more common occurrence, events like we saw at UC Davis, the deafening silence in response by Tea Party supporters suggests that some parts of the constitution (right to peaceful protest) are not nearly so American as others. To the people who were screaming about We The People and 2nd Amendment Solutions over healthcare reform just a few months ago: where's the outrage over the government spraying peaceful protesters (seated with their heads down) in the face with pepper-spray? Where's the concern over one of the fundamental principles of our beloved Constitution?
Such a fine line between clever and stupid.
