  1. BM 1

    Ha Ha, That banner is awesome.

    • Ed 1.1

      Do ACT Party members ever protest about anything?

      • BM 1.1.1

        No idea, not an ACT voter.

        But generally, most people on the right side of the political spectrum don’t tend to protest, too busy working and getting on with leading productive and positive lives.

        Whiny sad sacks with no purpose is more of a left wing thing, hence you always have left-wingers protesting, gives them a bit of purpose and a reason to get out of bed.

        • McFlock 1.1.1.1

          Most people protest.

          Fuckwits in gumboots just whinge about everything, and snowflakes in suits always want us to worry about their “confidence”.

          • BM 1.1.1.1.1

            snowflakes in suits always want us to worry about their “confidence”.

            They complain and protest because of all these left-wing theory only amateurs who have no idea what they’re doing have decided they know best and are fucking with their livelihoods.

            Stop fucking with them and leave them alone === no protesting.

            Left-wingers protest because it’s who they are, it seems to be an integral part of their core being.

            • marty mars 1.1.1.1.1.1

              Yeah and some of us protest racist rugby tours and injustice but not the righties – too selfish and lacking the empathy to even comprehend others. No wonder bridges is their hero.

            • McFlock 1.1.1.1.1.2

              Edward Teach and Dick Turpin had the same complaint about government regulation fucking with their livelihoods.

        • Draco T Bastard 1.1.1.2

          But generally, most people on the right side of the political spectrum don’t tend to protest, too busy working and getting on with leading productive and positive lives.

          Capital strike anyone?

          You know, those actions that capitalists take when they can’t bludge as much as they want from everyone else’s work.

          The bludging that always destroys societies and economies.

        • KJT 1.1.1.3

          Bidding up the prices of housing, finding more creative ways of ripping off the rest of us, and dodging paying their fair share of taxes, may be “busy”. “Productive” it is not!

      • Muttonbird 1.1.2

        They do. They protest for profiteering schools, and Tommy Robinson.

  2. Gabby 2

    It’s cos they live in a free countree with freedums isn’t it BMmer.

  3. Bill 3

    Well. For what it’s worth Ojeda’s taking a tilt at being US President in 2020.

    When I asked if a white man from West Virginia could understand what was behind the Black Lives Matter movement, he argued that his experience living in and among the working class — which is heavily made up of black and Hispanic people — gives him insight into that struggle. “I can understand it far better than the millionaires and billionaires sitting around the conference tables in Washington, D.C. That’s a fact.

    The Nats will be happy Jacinda Ardern has managed to bring down petrol prices.
