So much for "Liberal tolerance and compassion"

So these protestors showed up to cry about the war in whine about the "violence" of call our President a war declare their "upset" with the innocent victims of the war, to share their "outrage" over the loss of life of the brave military men and women who volunteered to make the ultimate sacrifice, etc., etc.

But isn't funny...they "hate" and "violence" so much except of course when they are the ones committing the very "crimes" they dare to say they are protesting against!!

Once again, demonstrating the hypocrisy of those on the left..."war is not the answer" unless you are going to "war" with 80 year old Republicans and Conservatives!!!!

Anti-War Protest at GOP Convention Turns Violent

ST. PAUL –A protest near the site of the Republican National Convention gave way to violence Monday as demonstrators attacked members of the Connecticut delegation, smashed windows, slashed car tires and threw bottles during an anti-war march, St. Paul police said.

More than 80 people were arrested by police using pepper spray in some confrontations. Police were determining on a case-by-case basis how to process them.

Five people were accused of setting fire to a trash bin and pushing it into a police car, St. Paul police spokesman Tom Walsh said.

The violent demonstrators were mostly dressed in black and described themselves as anarchists. Most of the violence occurred in pockets of a neighborhood near downtown, several blocks from the Xcel Energy Center, where the convention was taking place.

At the request of police, 150 Minnesota National Guard soldiers helped control splinter groups near downtown long after anti-war marchers had dispersed.

Protesters attacked members of the Connecticut delegation when they got off their buses near Xcel Center, delegates told FOX and a local TV station.

A group of protesters came toward the delegation and tried to rip the credentials off their necks and sprayed them with a toxic substance that burned their eyes and stained their clothes, delegate Rob Simmons told KMSP-TV.

One 80-year-old member of the delegation had to be treated for injuries, and several other delegates had to rinse their eyes and clothing, the station reported.
