I know someone who chooses to go and 'watch protests when there are things like the G7 summit.

I always tell them that they are asking for trouble.

You don't step into the lion's den without anticipating some issues.

As others have pointed out -- thousands of gay pride events in June....and one person went after these protesters.

The 'preachers' would have been better to stay home and pray. I'm sure God is not impressed they went and poked the bear.

The person who physically assaulted these preachers should be charged....and then we move on.

I have seen the protesters used as a charity at pride events. A group had big sparkly picture frames, and you could get your picture with a drag queen with the protesters in the frame for a donation. One year they raised over a thousand for a local childrens charity.

In our state protesters have o be across the street from the location they are protesting, so they don't even get close to our pride parade/festival.

That kid in the video the OP posted is lucky that big guy in the red shirt showed constraint and that there were Police around because he could have received a beating.



That little punk has no respect throwing a drink at someone.

He should be made to apologize after his day in court. Maybe he could learn something about respecting other peoples spaces and their beliefs.

Is there an argument to be made that the kid has been emboldened by the negative news and brainwashed to lash out at things and people that disagree with him?



The comments about oppression were spot on.

Jailed for out-yelling street preachers? That's not a crime.

The first video is an InfoWars video. In simplest terms, could someone please tell me what ToS violations InfoWars did that got their YT and FB channels booted?
