Maybe she should have a chat with some who have been in the Middle East during the protests. Someone like ABC News reporter Lara Logan who was viciously and violently sexually assaulted right in Egypt's Tahrir Square by a mob of thugs.
In Syria, Arab spring has resulted in more than 1000 of Syrian's own citizens being murdered. More have been arrested or wounded in many household raids conducted by evil President Bashar al-Assad's thugs. A13yr old boy was tortured and killed. His body was mutilated.
This is only a couple of examples of "Arab spring" There is much more of this violence that isn't being reported. People in the Middle East are literally dying for a democracy like ours. That's what I thnk she doesn't get. We are truly blessed. So what in the heck does she want?
She should be proud and greatful that she lives in a country shes has the freedom to voice her opinion and to peacefully protest any other time and place without any threat to her life but during the Throne Speech in the Senate was inapprioate.We just had a free and democratic election that those in the Middle East are dying for and if she's not happy about the result, she has a chance in 4yrs if she wants to change it. Even a former page who left a comment on David Akin's blog is disgusted by her action.
Sadly Brigette DePape is just one example of what's being taught in our schools and these kids are our future leaders and it's troubling to say the least. Scary!
