I can think of safer things to do than laying down in the middle of the George Washington Bridge during rush hour. Russian roulette with a Glock comes to mind...

Five bucks says they're pigment-challenged Ebonics failures. Half a century of "Affirmative Action" giving them every unfair advantage in the book, and these moldy cheeze stumps still can't find their asses with both hands.

Wow, how very equal we must all be, huh?

In the authoritarian city-states of NJ and NY, this kind of crap won't be tolerated. But block a main interstate highway in Atlanta or Charlotte? Eh, that's flyover country, and the crackers deserve it.

Is that not what has happened, in effect?

Another article claimed they were protesting “immigrant rights”, when in reality they were advocating against our right to have the rule of law.

N. B. Guns bombs knives are not needed to fight the system.

All that is required is ingenuity and the willingness to be arrested.

If they chain themselves together, they are easier for motorists to get out and pepper spray and beat up.

Nope, don’t get a felony charge with the gas pedal. Go for the misdemeanor and slap em around. Their hands are chained, so have some fun.
