4. I couldn't agree more...

self defense is allowed, even defense against tyranny is allowed.

5. I'm with you. The GOP thinks all progressives are peace loving hippies. Not people who will fight

for their values.
They are wrong.

6. They want progressives to fight their fight.

Sadly there may not be any other choice but to give it to them.

7. There is never a good strategy

Your target for protests are Government officials. Making life difficult for ordinary motorists will not accomplish anything. Add to which, the officials in California aren't the ones you need to change the minds of./

9. You were caught in traffic on the highway?

If not, your attention wasn't the target.

10. Video of it was shown live on Rachel Maddow...

motivating more people to protest. It was the perfect audience.

11. Meh...

People were only inspired to act because they saw it on a TV show for politically engaged people?

12. Being a Booklynite maybe you are familiar with the Act Up protests of the late 80s?

When I first saw those protests I felt the same way, that they were only going to piss people off and it would hurt the Gay Rights movement. Instead, it drew widespread attention to the issues and ultimately helped bring about change.

13. I'm not aware that civil disobedience against the non-engaged public...

…has ever been successful.

I once attended a Clinton rally that was disrupted by an Act Up protestor. That was a targeted protest that made sense. Interfering with the lives of regular people going through their day does not raise support.

14. Act Up is largely known for their protests on Wall Street and in Manhattan...

against people who were primarily only engaged in making profits.

I was involved in a march in Los Angeles that happened spontaneously, immediately after the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy was announced. It disrupted traffic in the middle of the wealthiest part of LA during rush hour. I feel that it let "non-engaged" people know how the gay community felt about this policy.

15. I thought blocking roads was wrong?

Just a few months ago this board was raging over trucks blocking traffic.
