Revolutions Aren’t What They Used To Be

(Before It's News)

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

Most revolutions, including the American, start out with protests. The concept being to attract attention to your cause and gain support.

It’s curious then that the Portland protesters demanded that media crews NOT film them, and occasionally going so far as to attack TV crews with a baseball bat if they refused to comply.

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can

Now why would that be? Possibly because the protesters being hauled around the country by charter bus are the usual suspects? The fact that 69% of those unlucky or stupid enough to get arrested were “not from around here”? And didn’t even take the time to vote last week?  We’re going to have to add a new term to the American protest lexicon: a “known protester” – “a person who arrives by bus seemingly out of ‘nowhere’  to protest whatever egregious action has warranted the wrath of the professionally and perpetually outraged” (aka “outside agitators).

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead

outraged

The press however seems more upset that Trump went out to dinner without them, then they do that a bunch of hired thugs dictating the terms of their own coverage. And for that matter they don’t seem very upset about the fact that yuge social media behemoths are shutting down entire elements of society they find disagreeable. 

revolution

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right
