Peaceful protests? President Clinton might say, “it depends on the meaning of “peaceful.”

A BBC headline in June reported, “27 police officers injured during largely peaceful anti-racism protests in London.”

And ABC News continued the trend last weekend reporting that “peaceful demonstrations intensified” in Oakland. Rioters set a courthouse on fire and assaulted police officers.

President Obama once said that shovel ready jobs “weren’t as shovel ready as we expected.”

shovel ready, Biden, Obama

Peaceful protests don’t seem to be as peaceful as we expected.

This is my Counterpoint cartoon from last week. It appeared alongside a Rob Rogers cartoon and here’s what I had to say about it:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler joined the mob Wednesday night and got booed and teargassed for his efforts. And I got a cartoon idea. But my sketch contained a couple of mental maneuvers making it  tough on the poor reader. Not only that, my lefty Counterpoint counterpart Rob Rogers didn’t care for the whole point of the thing. He thought Mayor Wheeler had done a splendid job over the past 50 days during which the mob trashed his town’s working class shopkeepers.  And, “oh, by the way,” Rob added, “why don’t you tweak that cartoon and just have the woman say, “Where’s the mayor when you need him”? Perfect. Thanks, Rob, you ignorant slut.

Here’s a glimpse of what defunding the police looked like this week. Protesters in Seattle founded a new nation in the hood called CHAZ.

The cops ran away from Chaz without a fight. And the new national ruling elite seem to be using the abandoned police station as its capitol.

My cartoon below is an oldie from the 1999 ant-globalism protests in Seattle.
