It’s no surprise that “stars” like Jane Fonda, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn were a part of a war protest in Washington today.Â It’s their right.Â Unfortunately, our soldiers are being endangered, our enemies are becoming bolderÂ and our reputation in the world is being ruined by these short-sighted, self-involved idiots who have no understanding of the concepts of patriotism and loyalty.Â So be it.Â
One paragraph in the news story puzzled me, though.Â Isn’t this a contradiction?
The rally on the Mall unfolded peacefully, although about 300 protesters tried to rush the Capitol, running up the grassy lawn to the front of the building. Police on motorcycles tried to stop them, scuffling with some and barricading entrances.
It “unfolded peacefully” but 300 of them tried to rush the Capitol and ended up scuffling with police who had to barricade entrances.Â Doesn’t sound too peaceful toÂ me.
