Okay..I'm perturbed

stolen whole by me, from my blogging buddy miguel over at Gun Free Zone.

Some asshole by the name of Peter Thottam is organizing Occupy Rose Parade. His reason?

J.R. Martinez is not only an Iraq War soldier, he is a wounded Veteran, former infantryman with the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division who suffered burns over 40 percent of his body when he was driving a Humvee in Karbala and hit a land mine. He is a motivational speaker and participating in Dancing with the Stars right now.

How much of a Westboro Baptist Church/Fucked up Junkie Hippie do you have to be to target the Rose Bowl because you hate a wounded Veteran?

And the sad part is that the Occupiers will probably succeed because local government in California have been rewarding their bad behavior with inaction . Their screwed up notion of the First Amendment does not include anybody else’s right to it: only theirs is valuable and you should shut up..

My solution...the fans of the parade should converge on the protestors, gather them up, and toss them into the nearest body of liquid..even if it's a sewer.

  1. I was at the Rose Parade a few years ago when protestors tried to make statements about Tibet and another matter. The first, open group was shunted aside to an area away from the parade. The second group held up signs during the parade almost in front of the museum. Cameras NEVER pointed their way and people around them politely got in their way. Don't worry, the Rose Parade committee is VERY conservative in its views.


Feel free to drop a line but try and keep it civil if it breaks into a heated discussion.
