Protests…Just Ducky

One of the things I love about the G-20 is the ridiculousness of some of the protests. Each group has their own agenda, and some have much more valid goals than others.

For example, we have these festive youths, who are, I think,  trying to make a point about coal and its harmful effects on the Earth and/or environment.

They will know pain!

Take that, Big Coal!

Notice their energy levels! FEVER. PITCH.

Next came The Battle To End All Battles.

Finish him!

"WINDPOWER, CRITICAL STRIKE! FINISH HIM!"

The crowd is on their feet, cheering for Windpower! Go Windpower, go!

And then came the climax of the protest!

YES! They took their protest (as such) and interfered with a Just Ducky tour! That will strike fear into the heart of the Imperialist coal industry! The earlier interpretative dance/Mortal Kombat session proved that alternative energy sources such as windpower will kill coal, and therefore the coal workers on the tour will be rendered jobless and should just start protesting for “real jobs” with them NOW!

All joking aside, the one thing I heard repeatedly from protesters leading up to this week was that “We don’t want to interfere with the people of Pittsburgh.” And yet, here’s 10 dorks “taking a stand” by blocking a Just Ducky tour. Yes, we Capitalists are shaking in our boots on that one. Princess Nipplehausen should be happy that I wasn’t driving, cause I would’ve run her over and hosed her remains out of the treads of my vehicle. I have no patience for this kind of crap.

If you’re going to protest against coal, make it a dramatic one, like by going to Coalfest in Fayette County. Oh wait, people there wouldn’t tolerate their shenanigans. Meeting with real coal miners instead of the paper pushers could produce much different results … in fact, if the protesters weren’t hospitalized for getting uppity with them, they may have found out why these people have such pride and such a proud heritage in Western Pennsylvania. And while there, they could have snacked on some funnel cake and listened to some smooth stylings from this guy:

You know this man rocks.

Aloha shirt. Trombone. You know this man rocks.

Really. Having a girl rage against the Just Ducky tour after some interpretive dance is the epitome of rebellion. Zach De La Rocha would be so proud. Fight the power. Literally.
