  •  Sometimes you just have to see the protests (3+ / 0-)

    through the eyes of the protesters and the audience for the protest, which in my mind, were gays and lesbians, instead of seeing it through the lens of Faux news.  This was a big solidarity building moment.  Young gays and lesbians are now fired up to something.  

    I'm sorry that it may appear silly, but moments like these are always important for mobilization, mobilization along many different paths.

    People know what they do; they frequently know why they do what they do; but what they don't know is what what they do does. -Michel Foucault
