Kickass dumb demonstrations

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says it cannot be 50 years since the keeper was on the UW campus with the student Dow demonstrators who kept insisting he was either a cop or an FBI agent.  He got shouted at, poked with deputies’ sticks, kicked by a tall student, tear-gassed and thought sometimes that he was back in combat.

The demonstrations were outrageous, of course, but came with a blend of naiveté and idealism that made them impossible to ignore, as Johnson, Nixon and others learned.

The Pence Indianapolis football demonstration last weekend by comparison is a childish, insulting, bumbling fiasco, and he and Trump need to be kicked by a tall student.
