44. liberal protests?
There are two major protest organizers, UFPJ, which are the for the most part liberal organizers, and ANSWER/IAC/WWP/Bring the Troops Home Now Coalition who are far left organizers.

The UFPJ events never, or almost never, have violence, flag burning, property defacement or concerns for issues tangential to the war. As far as the ANSWER rallies, they are replete with issues tangential to the war, but even with ANSWER rallies violence, flag burning and property defacement are rare.

I'm not aware of the American anti-war movement killing anyone in the last few decades, although from the Oklahoma city bombing, to the assassination of doctors, radio show hosts and so forth, the far right has killed many people in the US. Yet you don't see the Terri Schiavo and anti-abortion brigades flagellating themselves because some of their extremists go out and kill people. I don't know why some defacement of recruiting stations is major news while shooting of doctors, or white supremacists who go around and shoot judges like white supremacist Matt Hale's judge who was killed a few weeks ago isn't major news. Give me a defaced military recruitment center over a dead judge in a white supremacist case any day.
