Yes We Can! ... Overthrow the Government!

This photo shows neo-Marxist anti-globalization protesters at a London demonstration on Saturday, March 28th. For the complete slideshow, see "In photos: 'Britain G20 Protests'."

G20 Protests

At the Los Angeles Times' slideshow, one photo shows protesters hoisting a banner that reads, "Can We Overthrow the Government? ... Yes We Can!"

Note that President Barack Obama has now
touched down in Britain, and security is extremely tight. The Daily Mail reports, "City on alert for anarchy as Obama sweeps into London for G20 talks with world leaders." At Bloomberg, "London Protesters Threaten Bankers, Evoke Executions."

Meanwhile,
the Wall Street Journal's describes the preparations as "fortress-like security for world leaders," and the article features a photo of a protest-banner that reads, "Capitalism Isn't Working ... Another World is Possible."

I pray for the president's safety, but for those who say, "it couldnt' happen here" ... it already is, here and
here , and that's just for starters.

Excellent post, Donald! :-)

There is a problem with all these subversive movements and professional demonstrators, who want to overthrow democratically elected governments.

Another example is the disabled olympic torch bearer, who was attacked in Paris last year.

There will probably not by any more olympic torch bearers, because it is too dangerous for them with all the political instability around the world.

The right to demonstrate could also disappear in Europe.

In the last century, and depending on whose numbers you believe, Marxism/Leninism/communism or whatever other "ism" you want to call it, managed to directly or indirectly murder between 100 and 200 million people.

Should present trends continue unaltered, I wonder how many are destined to be killed by this same murderous ideology, or some derivative thereof, during the 91 years remaining in this century?

Technology has advanced very rapidly in the last several years. What a shame that people don't seem to be able to advance along with it. Obama will probably be safe with all the security he has, but for the life of me I can't understand why he wouldn't be safe. After all, he's all about socializing everything!

Perhaps if people would pay attention to history perhaps they wouldn't be so eager to repeat it.
