Parent Article: Fifth Day of Protests, July 29th
Hidden with code "Policy Violation"
Re: Fifth Day of Protests, July 29th
01 Aug 2004
Unlike many of the lemmings that read this site, I was AT the protest on Thursday. It was a successful promotion of Haters Magazine, and I took great pleasure in condemning gay marriage, proving to members of Socialist Worker that socialism is a disgusting idea alien to the US, and genersally amusing myself listening to the LaRouchians spin conspiracy theories about the Beatles.

Having observed the events firsthand, including following the "Anarchist" march from Copley to the Fleet Center, I am amazed at the police restraint. Really the pigs did not harass anyone who was not a blatant idiotic son of a bitch. Count "3" arrests.

I was present at the so called "standoff." Let's not lie our ass off here okay? The anarchist fire did not "occur during the standoff," it instigated the standoff. During this standoff the only people arrested were a person with a hoax device and a couple others who came just to fistfight the police (as a mob). I saw two police officers actively ignore an idiot who was mixing chemicals in a bottle, and a faggot and a skinhead who were punching (themselves) in the head.

The most telling event is that when, as the author suggests, the police phalanx dispersed, the anarchists promptly left 20 minutes later. This is because they had no real purpose or plan of protest at the event. The real protesters didn't leave at 4:30, they left at 10 pm.

The Quakers outshined the "anarchists" who were largely illiterate, smelly, lazy and banging on Tupperware.

Overall it was a good time. I feel sorry for the kid whose tape recorder got busted though. It was a piece of vintage equipment.
