For those of you who have been living on MARS , Vancouver is hosting the Olympics in a short period of time . Naturally , as with all things that could potentially eliminate the recession , there are protests . Some of the protesters are Aboriginal groups , which seem respectful , but there are migrant rights groups , anti-Israelis , welfare activists , and every other brand of yo-yo one can imagine . And they all have the right to peaceful protest in this land of ours . But today got out of fucking hand . The protesters were absolutely WRONG today . In an overzealous attempt to block the Torch Relay , the rights of people were infringed upon .
If memory serves me correctly , one of the people they tried to block is a Holocaust survivor . And that is absolutely a bad thing when you are a group claiming to stand for human rights . But that is not all . These people also tried to block the torch from reaching The Hospital For Sick Children on Gerrard Street . People risked their safety to get the torch there so some dying children could get the chance to carry the torch , to live something in their dreams . As amazing as this hospital is , it is safe to say that this will be the last chance for some of these innocent beings to do something truly awesome . It might even be an inspiration for a kid to keep on scrapping for his or her life . Children are simple and humble and the little things really DO matter .
When your protest infringes on the joy of children , it ceases to become peaceful . It was a planned event and ALL of you knew that children could be affected and for that , you are assholes. These babies did nothing to you , but you still saw it fit to try to interfere with something that could be their dying wishes .
Go cash your welfare checks , get drunk , and take a collective nap on a CN Rail track .
