Protests? Activism?

Seriously? Hey, Peace Moonbeam... how about you pull out your dictionary and look up the word "riot"?

protest

-- TORONTO -- With no apparent political message, the group’s members smashed windows, vandalized storefronts and burned police cars in their wake.
Here's a thought... next time your boss pisses you off... try smashing the plate glass in the lobby of your workplace... and setting fire to cars in the parking lot.

No big deal, right... it's just a protest.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"They probably don't HAVE bosses, Neo, because THIS is their job."

RELATED: And Marshall McLuhan wept...
"These anarchists are much more organized than people realize."
It's true... the medium is the moron.

ASKED...
Journalist Steve Paikin, host of TVO's The Agenda, said police were overly aggressive during the arrests.

"I can appreciate that the police were on edge today, after seeing four or five of their cruisers burned. but why such overreaction tonight?" he posted on his Twitter account.
AND ANSWERED...
As in Ottawa, law enforcement declined to enforce the law, the OPP remaining in the wings as thugs rushed the stage. “The police, I’m told, were urged not to intervene,” Paikin explained, “lest pictures of demonstrators being hauled off by the cops show up all over YouTube.”
Bias... what media bias?

They destroy things and create nothing. Beyond useless.

"michael points out... They probably don't HAVE bosses, Neo, because THIS is their job."

okay... there's the beating heart of this insanity.

more to the point... we, the taxpayer... cut them monthly cheques to do this.

you truly do get the kind of government you deserve.

Paikin answers his own question. What an idiot.

well... it's not that paikin's not a smart guy... 'cos he indisputably is... but he just can't overcome that deeply ingrained left-lib bias that is apparently a non-negotiable prerequisite for becoming a journalist in fuzzy-bunny canuckistan.

The thugs meeting places, Canadian Press reports:

Four arrested after emerging from manhole near G20 summit site

Police raid University of Toronto campus, make 50 more G20 arrests

"wilson says... emerging from manhole"

gives a whole new meaning to the term "shit disturber".

With no apparent political message?

Ummm the political message is "We don't want the leaders of the 20 most powerful countries to talk to each other.

Plus... we like to destroy stuff for no apparent reason.

can't wait for iggy to pull his usual hypocritical 180... and start screaming about the conservatives skimping on security.

Here in Montreal the Quebec government subsidizes a lot of the social activist and environmental groups. The idea is to keep them quiet. Doesn't work.

A lot of these thugs were imported from Montreal for the Summit. Every weekend here the same groups are out in the streets protesting against the flavour of the week - not oppression in Iran, however.

They might not have bosses but they have mommies and daddies they called when arrested.
Isn't that what most children do when they get hurt, at least until they are about five years old.
