Is her complaining about the protesters' profanity her way of saying she has no counter argument? If 17 people I knew were shot to death all at once, I'd be cussing up a storm.

Exactly... it's been a standard response to many protest movements - just look at BLM. "It's not that we disagree with what you're saying, but you're just not protesting the 'right' way."

The 'right' way, of course, is rarely explained by those complaining, though the implication I always get is that the 'right' way to protest must be silent and invisible. Basically, "We're fine with you protesting, but we want it to be easier for us to ignore." That this appraoch is antithetical to the nature of protest appears to be lost on them.


Man, is that a Republican forehead on her, or what????
