I counted at least two ponytailed men in the audience. I wonder if they'll sing a song about the yuppies and hipsters wanting Hi-Lo to shut down so Whole Foods can take over.

but this is too much. These are the same rabid grannies who are right out there protesting when a McDonald's wants to open anywhere within 500 yards of Harvard Square, but ole Chuck gets a pass. Why? Because these are the same morons that scream and yell about this poor black man and how he's being put down by the "man". Yet if they caught some black kid breaking into their Volvo wagon, they'd be calling them the "N" word faster than you can say Noam Chomsky.

Could they be or appear any more foolish? These activists are the very same type of people who gathered in Amherst every weekend to protest on the busy town square. The demonstrators stood in a line with handmade signs protesting the "War" and demanding that George W Bush, "Bring our Troops Home, NOW!!" Let's now fast forward, change presidents and wonder of wonders; the protesters have vanished as has their outrage. The silence is deafening. 'Their' silence is deafening.
Not only are the troops still away but Obama has expanded our military presence in the world but that doesn't count because moonbats suffer with selective indignation.
It was never about the troops, it was all about President Bush. These people are hypocrites and act as if they've been lobotomized. i.e.:"O-botomizied." Moonbats are always on the wrong side. It doesn't matter if the issue is Chuck Turner, the Sept 11 terrorist attack or the DC Sniper; whatever is the most treacherous, left wing, hypocritical position to take- they will take it and take it proudly. Thank God they are vastly outnumbered.

People are still pissed about the wars, though it's not as easy to get out once you're already there. Many on the left speak out loudly in opposition to Obama's policies, and especially his failure to deliver on campaign ideals and promises. The left has been almost as critical of Obama as the right. In my experience conservatives are actually more likely to support or oppose people rather than positions, and to fall into line with their leaders.

What you say could be applied to extremists on both the left and right, but the fact that you focused on only one side leads me to believe that you might be a memeber of this special fraternity.

Just because the arrests aren't "newsworthy" doesn't mean they're not happening.

Ben Alper starts a little ditty, set to "Charlie on the MTA."

. . . because I'm from Massachusetts and so is he and I don't like rats and paid informants- especially ones that work for a certain central government that is amoral and out of control. I don't care if Chuck Turner has a poster of Mao on his ceiling above his bed. He lives HERE! I support him.

You support rats? You support paid informants against Massachusetts citizens? Then say so- with your real name. Let your neighbors know your primary allegiances and where you stand.

In case I don't, Gin Dumcius from the Dorchester Reporter will be there, and I'll link to his account.
