Comments on: Taunting children? http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2009/11/02/taunting-children/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DG http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2009/11/02/taunting-children/comment-page-1/#comment-346403 Mon, 16 Nov 2009 09:58:27 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/?p=14899#comment-346403 I can understand someone trying to get thier point across but using kids to get that point across is wrong i do not really care what he or she said. they should have shown more class than to use kids in thier political banter. And some people wonder what is wrong with america today!!!! mainly it is that so many “adults” act like adolescents so why should the the teens act like adults.

Grow up and leave the children out of it.

Oh, the media only adores them when they are protesting Bush.

Harassing children? Get a life…

The problem with this statement is that Fred Phelps is a registered Democrat. He IS the left as well…

If Code Pink doesn’t appreciate their perception in the media, they should choose more appropriate events to protest. Most of families probably thought it was a big joke because it looked like one.

What exactly would you call it then? Code Pink is an absolute disgrace. Showing up to taunt a bunch of kids? What next going to funerals and mocking the families of the dead? Medea Benjamin is the Fred Phelps of the left.

As in, “look at these dumb broads – why aren’t they at home doing something useful, like taking their kids to soccer practice?” Probably because they don’t have any – it’s hard to imagine a mother saying things like this to children.

I think part of the whole debate is perception..One has a hard time seeing this objectively when their “filter” thfouhg which they view the world is skewed on way of the other. Maybe the protesters said some inappropirate things, but in what they thought was a humorous way…and if you hear with angry ears, then everything sounds worse..Or if you are feelin happy and excited, those remarks are more easily brushed aside…I really with I could figure out what the “truth” is in some of these article I read…

The line was blocks long to get into the event and it was raining. That was the worst thing about that event. The parade of protesters was small and quite cartoonish. I heard nothing from any of them that was worse than any other Halloween type activity.
