Olympia Protest Update

I don't know how many of you have been keeping up with those protestors who have been blockading military shipments at the Port of Olympia in Washington. Inevitably undermining their own cause and turning public sentiment against them, bless their hearts.

Sinistar blogged it on Monday.

On Friday, protesters, including several small children, were able to keep two trucks from leaving the port. Olympia police said the department did not have enough officers available to remove the protesters Friday, and that they were not prepared to physically remove children.


Nice...way to use young children as human shields, guys. If you're going to engage in civil disobedience, fine, but don't bring children into a function that has to potential to turn into riot or violence, its unnecessary, and reckless

Well, they're still doggedly at the task, of course.

Failure is the only possible outcome of this exercise, but the obvious futility of every friggin' thing they do never stopped a moonbat. For that dear friends let us rejoice.

Police wearing riot gear fired pepper spray bullets into a crowd of more than 150 protesters Tuesday night at the Port of Olympia and several military convoys eventually moved out. ---------------------------------------

Initially, protesters seeking to block the truck convoys gathered at the main gate to the port, but the Army moved several convoys through another gate, the exit onto Marine Drive. The arrests began about 10 p.m. Tuesday as protesters ran to try to block traffic through the side gate.
--------------------------------------

Ken Schwilk of Olympia said police removed protesters goggles and sprayed them in the eyes.

"These are nonviolent people. They are not attackers," Schwilk said.

They're so shocked, shocked, than police would dare touch their anti-pepperspray goggles in order to pepperspray them. How can you not be delighted with their childlike stupidity?

Below the jump is video of protestors making their big victory- stopping two measly trucks last Friday- and making public asses of themselves (Literally. Pause that baby at -3:31).

Big thanks to genghis.
