66. Probably not ...

I think of the arrests and beatings and harassment endured by early AIDS activists and this woman claiming they did not exist, obviously she skipped that entire movement, as did you apparently. To claim those things did not happen is a shame and a lie. Yes, lie.


You have jumped the shark once again!

Where did I (or she through me) say that these things did not happen? In fact, I'm pretty sure that she (through me) said:

everyone in her peer group knew they were breaking the law with their actions and going to jail (and the beatings) were part of the journey; whereas, the modern day protesters want to have it both ways ... they want to be free to break whatever laws they feel are unjust, protest against the corrupt government and all. Then, they want to be protected (not pay a price) for their "noble sacrifice" ... oftentimes demanding that that protection come from the very government they are disobeying.
