    Public protests are an expression of all that is good and Godly -- they are the ultimate display of democracy and patriotism against the evils of the establishment, the corruption of the federal government, and the unconstitutionality of decisions handed down by the Supreme Court.*

    * ... unless said protests are conducted by union workers, liberals and progressives, ethnic minorities, gays, senior citizens, women fighting for their health and privacy rights, or participants in an "occupied" rally, in which case they're a non-patriotic demonstration of unAmerican, immoral ideas by "thugs, hoodlums, and malcontents" who want to destroy society as we know it!

    The preceding announcement was brought you by the corporate-sponsored lobbyists and Congressional Republican puppetmasters of ALEC.
