OLYMPIA, Wash — At least three more protesters were arrested Sunday as demonstrations continued against shipments of military cargo through the Port of Olympia.
Others were sprayed with pepper spray by police as they tried to block trucks hauling equipment to Fort Lewis after it was unloaded from a ship carrying the gear back from Iraq.
Protests at the port began Tuesday, after the USNS Brittin arrived and began unloading equipment that had been used in Iraq by the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division from Fort Lewis.
I’m guessing Dark Moody (my most recent pathetic troll) was there.
They were protesting shipments that were coming back from Iraq.
Aren’t you guys a little late?
This stuff was coming back from ChimpyMcHalliburton’s private war for oil. You should be cheering. If you haven’t been paying attention, the surge worked. So now we are pulling troops and equipment out — not the other way around.
At the port’s gates, protesters wearing goggles and other protective gear withstood several rounds of pepper spray but were physically removed by officers who picked them up and threw them away from the road they had blocked, The Olympian newspaper reported.
One protester, Andrew Yankey, told The Olympian that officers removed protesters’ protective goggles and sprayed them directly in the face.
“I was dragged and sprayed in the face repeatedly,” he said. “My goggles were ripped off my face and stolen.”
Dude, that sucks. Really.
I’m sure that the brave young men and women of the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division feel your pain. Or not, you pathetic little douchebag.
I’m getting sick and tired of leftie idiots whining about having their patriotism questioned. Well, this proves it. They have no patriotism to question. They hate this country and everything that it stands for. Why else would they have a protest when troops are returning home?
What did these scumbags do before there were Starbucks and the Internet?
The Democratic party is finding out just how little these life suckers really matter in the grand scheme. They don’t actually contribute anything. Being associated with them is instant political death. Who was that guy that Lieberman ran against? Right, no one remembers. Just like no one will remember these crap weasels in a few years. But, that doesn’t mean we have to tolerate their immature tantrums. This is not about free speech. Moonbats don’t care anything about free speech. They care about their agenda — and nothing else.
France finally figured out the damage that people like this can do to their society.
We are far from having to worry on that scale. But, it’s getting ridiculous.
Tolerance only goes so far. When these spoiled little brats violate the law to hold unpeaceful protests, they should be forced to deal with the consequences of their actions — under the law.
