On the G20 Protestors...

...they're idiots.

Now, that doesn't mean the police should be shooting beanbag, firing pepper spray, and blasting piercing sound waves toward them. This is a clear violation of their natural right of free assembly which is protected by the 1st Amendment.

In fact, protesting this use of force by police would be a far superior use of time than the supposed purpose of this loosely organized group of 1000 protestors that don't even understand what they're protesting.

They're protesting "profits", "capitalism", and all misery experienced by every individual in the entire world. I'm feeling sad today, and its the G20's fault!

If it smells like socialism, if it looks like socialism, and if it acts like socialism, well..this crowd calls it free-markets. If it smells like fascism, if it looks like fascism, and if it acts like fascism, well...this crowd calls it capitalism.

Obviously they have not read anything written by any free-marketeer, ever.

The leaders of the richest 20 governments in the world getting together to plan world policy is a glaring example of central planning which is accustomed with political philosophies that has historically brought more suffering and pain to the world than free-markets have ever done.

From one protester in an article on RawStory.com:
Our message here is about climate change, poverty, capitalism: they're all very intertwined and it's time that we all understand that if we are going to do anything, we have to work together.
Well la-dee-da. Could this individual ooze anymore main-stream left-wing talking points? Climate-change BAD, Poverty BAD, Capitalism BAD! We need to work together and live in cotton-candy land! How ironic is it that these talking point are propagandized by organizations like the UN and G20 and then these idiots use the talking point to protest the people who originated them! Which organization talks most about the evils of climate-change? The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a UN backed organization that calls for economic policies that would kill capitalism. Where does the UN get funding for organizations like the IPCC? ALL OF THE COUNTRIES GATHERED AT THE G20.

Let us take a look at the list of countries being represented at the G20:

* Argentina
* Australia
* Brazil
* Canada
* China
* France
* Germany
* India
* Indonesia
* Italy
* Japan
* Mexico
* Russia
* Saudi Arabia
* South Africa
* South Korea
* Turkey
* United Kingdom
* United States

Which one of these countries is pushing strongly for free market principles? They are almost all ruled by a political philosophy which is the anti-thesis of free markets and capitalism. They pretty much all espouse support of welfare policies supposedly "for the poor". These governments are responsible for subverting capitalism at every turn.

These protesters are protesting governments which are doing exactly what they want! They should be outside cheering.

Idiots.

Many of those countries have leaders who are ideologically opposed to the welfare state, unions, and liberty. That is why they are protesting.

Can you name at least 5 leaders at the G20 that hasn't supported the welfare state or unions in their own country?

And yes, every single one of them is against liberty.

Also, are you trying to redefine the purpose of the protests within your own vision? These people are protesting because of, "climate change, poverty, capitalism". More likely they don't understand why they're protesting are just...idiots.

Dealing to stay in power is different than supporting. For example, Harper is ideologically opposed to nationalized health care, but to stay in office he has to show that he will not eliminate it.

No, they are not idiots, but you are definitely an idiot for thinking they are "just idiots".

"Dealing to stay in power is different than supporting. For example, Harper is ideologically opposed to nationalized health care, but to stay in office he has to show that he will not eliminate it."

Harper has issued $4 billion in economic "stimulus" and bought 10% of GM. These are not actions in support of capitalism.

Again, please name at least 5 leaders who has not supported the welfare state or unions in their own country?

"No, they are not idiots, but you are definitely an idiot for thinking they are "just idiots"."

They're just as stupid as the tea partiers. They're protesting just to protest and have no idea what they're protesting.
