An embarrassment for Victoria

Saturday, October 31st, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Rather than going on at length about the protests last night that disrupted the Olympic torch relay, here’s some comments.

In my opinion, there are legitimate concerns about the cost of the Olympics, where money could be better spent, who really benefits (is it really the children as claimed?), etc.  But the disruptions last night only served to discredit the protesters and their issues, while impacting everyday folks who wanted a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

One poster commented on the cost of helicopters and security.  And why was that cost necessary, protesters?

Who was the audience for the protesters?  Who is going to be enlightened by this?

The intolerance in the protesters only mirrors the intolerance they perceive in corporations and government (which I agree often exists).  The protesters are no different, and they only serve to perpetuate division and fear.
