In response to my quote, "Real protestors do not hang around mixing with rioting dickheads."

Do the peaceful protestors know the difference between a rioting dickhead and a peaceful protestor?

Why do I bother discussing with people who have already made up their minds about idiots who cannot differentiate between a rioter and a protestor?

I'd agree.
But i'd be fine with protesting in front of a home on the public sidewalk or even IN the street.
However blocking someone IN their home or yard I'd consider criminal.
But something like that is not really what either of us was talking about though.
It is exactly what we are talking about. What difference is it if you are blocking from leaving your driveway or blocked on the highway. Either way, you are at the mercy of the crowd. It is wrong regardless of the location.

While enforcement may in fact be arbitrary, depending upon the whims and political decisions by those in charge, in either case it is a matter of some people ignoring the rights of others to exercise their rights. Again, I don't get to trample on your rights to exercise mine.

It is more than a feeling, it is protected by our Constitution. It doesn't matter for what purpose that I wish to ride down a road, it is my right to do so. And you exercising your right to protest does not supersede my right of freedom of movement.

Accommodation is part of our legal process and frankly human kindness that simply realizes that, occasionally, we all may have to make some space for others to exercise their rights.
Sure it does. Accommodation says that people on foot are free to speak their minds on the sidewalk, in a park, in front of City Hall or wherever people generally gather ON FOOT. The highway is reserved for those traveling by vehicle to get from point A to point B. It is NOT to accommodate someone with a grievance that wants to inconvenience me or my neighbor in an effort to support their cause.

And I cannot believe I have to point this out, but by these actions, they are actually turning people like me away from their cause. Why should I support a group that claims to be against LEO's breaking the law by breaking the law in an effort to disrupt my life to get your point across? That seems counter productive.

Once again, you invoke the false equivalency.

That's what most of your posting's are like.

Expressing a conservative opinion on a topic is like Like yelling fire?
Given people information from doctors about research is like yelling fire?

Salt, that's BS.

the real reason they ban and/or censor is because they don't LIKE the person/group and or the content of the message.
And they have the power to do so.
simply as that.

And despite Conservative protestations about the rights of Big Biz some functions of democratic society simply should not be under the controlled of "the market".

Many on the left believe that ALL conservative opinions are like yelling fire.

Many on the left have been conditioned by the media to believe Conservatives are the enemy of the world, and more dangerous than terrorists.
