5. It's a crowd control method....
Edited on Thu Jan-20-05 04:04 PM by NavyDem
Non violent but fairly effective in supressing unruly crowds.

Edit: I just realized that's not water, it is pepper spray :(

23. I'm skeptical...
I think any "supporters" were shipped in, and were probably limited to guests of the festivities.

DC voted 9-1 against Bush. The locals are NOT happy about this shit at all.

Crap news probably meant the supporters outnumbered the protesters INSIDE the building dancing and wearing cowboy hats....


The situation is the streets was likely another matter.

Edited on Thu Jan-20-05 04:49 PM by euler
...are behind a fence, but some rather hard looking objects - not snowballs - were being hurled over the fence at the motorcade. It required some sort of police response (there was no way to know what te objects were), but pepper spray and water is too much. Neither tactic is selective - people not throwing objects got it just as bad as the ones who did, probably worse, since the ones who threw the objects probably backed out of the crowd so as not to be seen. There must have been something else the police could have could have done.

38. I must say...
I don't really support throwing things. Just MHO. Innocent people can get hit, plus that's when you cross a line from peaceful protest to aggression.
You can say a lot with words, signs, etc...
But pepper spray hoses is a bit much. Even plain water I could understand, and small cans of pepper spray in case a person actually ASSAULTED a cop or something...

But opening a stream of pepper spray on a crowd, I agree, isn't the best option.

Hippies Vs. Rednecks.

My Country, Right or Wrong!

Hell no, We Won't Go!

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming...

Actually things had calmed -- a little, but not much -- by Inaug Day '73. Nixon won in a landslide, it wasn't close (STOLEN!) like now... Again I was a kid but I recall that the whole MSM (which was about all there was then) seemed aimed at discrediting the Watergate thing (which was just starting to come on the radar) and also letting the "failed" Dem Candidate McGovern have it for being a... you name it (Commie, weak, un-American, radical, leftist, etc.)

47. We need to remember McGovern was not the most "moderate"...
candidate who ran in '72 and the Repukes succeeded very handily in framing him as a pinko, commie, leftist, unAmerican, nutball, weirdo, again as I said, you-name-it. And even though lots of people were "getting it" about Vietnam. McGovern lost. Big.

That said, I think now we SHOULD run good, progressive candidates, but just REMEMBER (and work to stop it from happening anymore!)

Forewarned is forearmed.

in their transparence. On Policy.com, the tag-team used to parrot the strangest would-be jibe - coming mostly, as it would have, from nerdy pimply youths wearing bow ties: "Get a life!", they'd post.

I warned Dem posters to pay heed, as the duty poster spouting that twaddle (surely pertinent to them more than anyone), at the time, must have taught Peter Falk to shoot pool, the way he was talking.

49. That's not exactly how I remember it.
MSM was on the liberal side then, much more than they are today even though they wear that label. BTW, they wear that label from the other side now to STOP them from being liberal in their coverage. Nice how reverse psych has worked on them isn't it?

I remember the war being a great deal of the coverage every night. Most of the coverage was in favor of ending the conflict. Granted, it took a while for the protesters to get "fair" coverage. I think the tide on that coverage changed when the main target audience (the 30 to 60 crowd) began to realize that they not only knew someone that they were related to that was a protester or they began to see their local contemporaries speaking out in much the same language as the protesters. Kent State Massacre was a pivotal point too.

Then we had Watergate firing up as well. Deep Throat was at first poo poo'd as sour grapes and then documents began to be leaked that supported the issues behind the issues. Once a few cracked and admitted what they had done, all hell broke lose in the media. You have to remember, the language of the day was different than the language is today. More intellectual and less 20 second sound bites for sure.

You also have to consider that the people that worked closest with Nixon knew he was on the edge. They were glad to see him finally fall.

It is very different than today I think. In retrospect, Nixon was a pussy cat!

54. The Media was more liberal yes but DID discredit Watergate at first...
Edited on Thu Jan-20-05 05:57 PM by demodonkey
seemed to me like the tide turned AFTER Tricky Dicky's 2nd inaug... I remember how divided everything seemed, especially up to the 72 election. After he got in the second time, things seemed to start to turn. But again, I was a kid so maybe I saw things from a different perspective.

I remember that the GOP did succeed in defining McGovern and he really was dismissed as a serious candidate. After the '72 election though, people saw things differently.

You are right that Nixon was nothing as bad as ** though. At least he had a bit of a social conscience and believed in helping the poor (at least little), etc. Unlike the "Compassionate Conservatives" we have now.

Nixon was probably turning over in his grave with all that fur in Washington. Just where were all the "respectable Republican cloth coats"?

I tried very hard NOT to listen to the media coverage on McGovern. I was working on his campaign staff and just couldn't stand hearing it. You are probably right about them defining him though. I just tuned it out, man! LOL

74. There were more..alot more
There were alot more radical groups then, and the whole youth movement was on it.
Young men were fleeing to Canada.
Huge concerts with peace as the theme were de riguer for the day.

In fact, everything that evolved from that era was because of Nixon/VietNam...

Songs, sayings (make love, not war, peace symbol to greet others etc)

There were protests allll the time; sit-ins, die-ins, etc.

The police were named 'pigs"..flag burning, protests on campuses, a true "INTELLECTUAL RENAISSANCE"


That's the problem today...This is not the sixties---this generation is more complacent. Hopefully, we will never have a draft; it would be so sad if that were what would finally get the masses working together.

Nixon was pretty much detested - though I do not remember so much across the board disapproval of his policies. I think Bush is worse (and the reaction to him stronger). I vividly remember rejoicing when Nixon was forced to resign.

Election night I was called all sorts of names. We knew the Watergate scandal was a deal breaker--but Nixon got back in--

Bush makes Nixon look like a liberal
Nixon:
Clean Air
CLean water
OSHA
Supported Labor
Went to China

Bush:

It was wonderful, I had vowed to not watch any of it because I can't stand to even look at his face but I saw on another thread here at DU that the protesters were being covered. It was so great, it was wonderful too see so many people from all over the country and from all over the world. They said that eventually no amount of fencing will be able to hold us all back!

Police officers fire streams of pepper spray into a crowd of protesters after demonstrators threw objects over the fence, as the President Bush (news - web sites) inaugural parade passes by on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, January 20, 2005. Anti-war chants competed with pomp and circumstance during the inauguration of Bush for a second term as president took place amid the barricaded streets of central Washington.
