Contrast and compare for yourself:
This video was shot at a peaceful protest a few buildings down from where President Obama was speaking in Charlotte, NC on April 2nd. Check out how many people are smiling:
Contrast with this next video from Accuracy in Media which covered a March 20 anti-war demonstration in Lafayette Square Park, across the street from the White House.
AIM went there to see what sort of activity was occurring, and as we show in this video, which was all shot at the scene of the demonstration, it was a mix of 9/11 Truthers, Code Pinkers, socialists, anarchists, and a large contingency of pro-Hamas, anti-Israel zealots.
The Washington Post covered it, but never mentioned the name Obama, though he was clearly a target of the protesters. The group that organized the protest, International ANSWER, claims there were 10,000 people there. Our estimate: 2 - 3 thousand tops, at least prior to the marching part of the demonstration. We didn't stick around for that part.
One thing for sure, no one burned an American flag at any Tea Party gatherings, but they sure did here. Did you see any reporting about the hate-speech and flag burning? I guess MSNBC was too busy that day.
