Hundreds of kids arrested at White House in Keystone Pipeline protest
American Thinker ^ | 03/03/2013 | Rick Moran

Posted on 03/03/2014 1:07:00 PM PST by SeekAndFind

About 300 people were arrested at the White House - most of them students - in a protest against approval of the Keystone pipeline.

The reasons they oppose the project are so far out in left field, they aren't even in the ballpark.

Politico:

More than 300 anti-Keystone XL protesters were arrested Sunday afternoon outside the White House in the latest push by environmentalists to convince the Obama administration to reject the Canadian oil pipeline.

The student-led protest, organized by XL Dissent, started with a rally at Georgetown University. The students marched from there to the White House — with a stop at Secretary of State John Kerry’s house along the way.

Students from 80 colleges participated in Sunday’s event, and another protest will be held on Monday in San Francisco, said Aly Johnson-Kurts, a freshman at Smith College and one of the organizers of the event.

“The youth really understand the traditional methods of creating change are not sufficient … so we needed to escalate,” said Johnson, shortly before she was arrested at the White House.

An organizer estimated the crowd at about 1,200 people. U.S. Park Police could not immediately provide a count of those arrested Sunday afternoon.

Organizers held civil disobedience training on Saturday to ensure that the demonstration went peacefully.

I find I like American Thinker’s articles more and more. No one else in the media reasoning like this.

I’m so confused. Those aren’t kids in my book. I guess kids are only kids if they can be used against conservatives or freedom.

If it involves the lefts agenda then they are adults.

They’re adults when they want their parents to pay their tuition and the school to provide them free condoms.

Don’t arrest them if they are doing something illegal. Bring out a pumper truck, hose them down, then leave. At 40 degrees, they will be getting out of there.

They probably got class credit for protesting.

In this economy, only a DC college kid could be stupid enough to ask for a police record. That’ll look great on a resume’ and background check.

That’s why Obama wants all 17 year olds to be able to vote.

In Illinois this month will be the first years that 17 year old can vote in all elections.

That is the age when they have been most recently brain washed in government schools.

Ive was in Washington last April on a Wednesday when thousands of illegal aliens have taken over Capitol Hill and the sidewalks causing Americans to have to walk n the streets..I got elbowed a few times and ran into and poked with their seditious signs..

No organized march no permits (who needs steenkin permits)just entitled illegal aliens with bullhorns demanding they be allowed to conquer and their invasion validated..

Peak oil is dead, and so are the enviro-whackos Marxist dreams. They are going to be desperate and violent.

I hope that the age to receive matriarchy, errr mean “child” support gets lowered to the 17th birthday as well.

Here in NYS, mom can receive mommy payments for her “child” well after the age of 21, yet said “child” is viewed as an adult for voting purposes at age 18.

I say this as a college student; the age to vote should be 25.

My three boys all went through college, 3 different ones, I’ve met zillions of college kids and I have never met any that were that stupid and uninformed.....but marching on Washington to protest a private company building a pipeline borders on idiocy....

Yes, you kids are blindingly original protesting at the White House and getting arrested. No one ever thought of doing that to create change. Nope. You guys rule. Wow. I'm awed. Completely.

Not defending the protester but the section of the Keystone project they are protesting
is the Keystone XL section of the Keystone Pipeline. This the the 4th section.
Sections 1, 2 and 3 have been completed.

Hmm, I wonder why the press isn’t covering the protest where all the concerned environmentalist are suspending driving cars, boycotting petroleum based products (including all the fancy bottled water), house paints, polyester, etc.... (/s)
