So Are G20 Protestors Just Idiots?
Not actually better than the things they are “protesting”. Of course, who knows what they are protesting-rather than talk about it and hold signs they wear masks, shatter windows, loot stores and destroy cars. Yeah… that helps spread the word.
Update: Oh, wait…the Daily Show’s Aasif Mandvi clears it all up…Vodpod videos no longer available.

My belief is there are a certain number of folks at most protests who actually don’t care about any of the actual issues at hand.
They just want to yell, scream, and break stuff.
They’d do it any other day…but they’d be more likely to get caught, so they use the crowd to disguise themselves, and then if they get arrested they can claim it was for “The Cause” and get sympathy.
Mobs are mobs. They aren’t interested in talking or logic or dialogue or even manners.
