How DARE Fox News ask liberal protestors what their message is!

The fun in Denver just keeps on going. Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins tried to interview some leftist protestors, asking offensive questions like, "What's your message? What are you upset about?", "Defend Denver... explain that to me, what does that mean?", and "Do you have a message? Do you have an actual message?" Check out the video, and the oh-so-intellectual, and not to mention mature, reaction by the protestors:

So, a Fox News reporter wants to give them a platform to express their thoughts and opinions freely, and this is a bad thing? Could it possibly be because they aren't accustomed to being questioned and asked to express in detail what they stand for? Chanting easy-to-remember slogans is simple. Actually expressing coherent and intelligent thought is not quite as simple.

And so what if Fox News isn't idealogically exactly the same as they are? I thought liberals were the proponents of tolerance and diversity. Theoretically there shouldn't be any problem then. But, surprise surprise, the only intelligent answer these idiots could give was "Fuck Fox News". Nice.

Joe:

Has anyone figured out why these folks are protesting at the Dem Convention rather than the Republican Convention? Seems their gripe would be with Republicans, not with the Dems. It makes no sense. I know, I know, that's their MO, but do you think anyone has ever explained the term 'tactics' to these people?

I think that they are ticked that the war is still being funded. They are probably shocked, shocked I tell you that the demorats lied to them to try to get elected.

What kind of moron reporter equates people not wanting to talk to him with "I guess you don't support freedom of speech"? Boy, Fox sure can hire sharp ones.

Hmm, let me see, which extremist contingent would be protesting in greater, far more threatening numbers and with far more frequent protests of this borderline violent nature: anti-war/socialist/anarchist/thugs/pick-your- moonbat cause or anti-abortionists.

Brian:

Wow, Peter, some days you point out how sparsely attended liberal protests are, and other days you attribute to them "far more threatening numbers". Which is it? And then you lump all liberal issues into "pick your moonbat cause", and compare them to a single right-wing cause (although you did pick one known for involving bombs and assassins).

However, your attempt to change the subject is irrelevant, as the comment pertained to those who "aren't accustomed to being questioned and asked to express in detail what they stand for".

Wow, Peter, some days you point out how sparsely attended liberal protests are...

And on most days, like today, you're full of crap because I've NEVER made such a claim unless it was so patently obvious that the numbers claimed were so grossly off as to be laughable. Heck, I can't remember the last time I even commented on such a matter. If you know (and that would kinda creepy), go find one. Good luck with that.

And then you lump all liberal issues into "pick your moonbat cause"...

And why shouldn't I say that? Ever seen or been to an anti-war protest where there weren't a multitude of various causes on display, some having little or nothing to do with an anti-war protest (ex: immigration rights, workers' rights, WTO placards, just name a couple that I saw in the last anti-war protest rally in Seattle's Westlake Center)? Surely you have.

However, your attempt to change the subject is irrelevant..

Perhaps. Yet in your typical smarmy style, you subtly shift from actually countering the statements made by Cassy with a link to the video that proved, well, that you really didn't know how to counter her point. So I guess one diversionary tactic deserves another...

Why protest at the Dem covention? I figure it's because they know the Republicans will rightly dismiss them as nuts. However, they know that the Democrats will listen to them and base their policy decisions on their slogans.

He's not talking about anyone that is ignoring him brian, he's talking about the idiots that are trying to shout him down with their "F#*K FOX News" slogan so he can't speak to anyone. Boy, you're a sharp one.

Mac Lorry:
Why protest at the Dem convention?

They are in Denver training to protest in St. Paul. What they don't realized is that the local population if further to the left then they are and will likely see them as conservative Bush lapdogs. You have to remember that St. Paul is the first place in American to elect a Muslim to Congress. How lefty is that?

"Reminds me a lot of these people."

Nope. Since as I pointed out, the topic is 'those who "aren't accustomed to being questioned and asked to express in detail what they stand for"', and my link was on topic with that.

Nice try, though.

Wrong. Watch the video again. He says that to anyone who just ignores him and keeps walking.

Boy, you're a sharp one.

I'm just average. I only look sharp compared to those like you.
