Anti-war protesters took to the streets again Monday, with more than 100 arrests in the city's financial district and noisy student demonstrators crowding the hallways of an administration building at San Francisco State University.

By noon, 123 people had been arrested at the city's famed Transamerica Pyramid building and at the federal building, according to San Francisco Police spokeswoman Maria Oropeza.

I walked this campus a few years ago and was amazed at the number of Free Mumia posters. It's nothing but a liberal petri dish.

Get what you sow. Maybe the universities will learn this...although I doubt it.

I agree. And if the government won't do it, we, the militia, must. As Thomas Jefferson said, the tree of liberty should be fed with traitors' blood.

When did Universities get the authority to pass laws? Wow, they are doing a really poor job of teaching over there.

>>"Pass an anti-war resolution," said Kirya Traber, 18, a freshman who addressed the crowd before leading protesters in a chant of "Money for Schools, Not War!"

You can tell they thought this one out long and hard.
Send this little girl to Iraq to show her how they do school there. Shutting down a place of goernment because they won't pass a resolution that you want - sounds like the kind of "democracy" they teach in Iraq.

This of course, was the same campus where Arab/Muslim students broke up a pro-Israeli rally a few months ago, beating people and yelling pro-Hitler slogans...

Where were these people for 12 years? Why weren't they protesting Saddam at the Iraqi Embassy? Where was the outcry for so many years at his torture, murder, etc? We gave the peace people a chance and they just shrugged and did not care about the children then. The only reason they are doing this now is their hatred of Bush and America. What a bunch of hypocrites!

I keep hearing them say 'well, why aren't we going after evil tyrant X or Y' and my reply is why weren't you protesting the evil of tyrant X or Y all this time and trying to do something about it with peaceful means? PROVE peace works, use all your 'masses' worldwide to peacefully force out those evil leaders and then perhaps I will believe you and even join you. But they won't even try. They simply don't care.

29? Obviously, the job market hasn't been fruitful. I guess there aren't to many jobs for mindless liberals in the private sector.

You have that wrong. Here's Jefferson's letter that contains the exact quote:

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.

Your call for citizens to rise up and extra-legally kill those whom they consider traitors would be anathema to Jefferson.

OK, someone please enlighten me.

If the whole school is a liberal cesspool, and no real educating gets done, why should we care if they don't go to classes. Why should we care if they take over their administration building.

Hell, just let 'em rot while protesting.

A rally last spring at San Francisco State degenerated into a shouting match between pro-Israeli and pro-Palestianian groups, with racial epithets and threats of violence until campus police intervened. University president Robert Corrigan sought Monday to quell a repeat of such a faceoff.

Once again, the AP reporterette obfuscates reality by refusing to denote just who was hurling the insults and threatening violence. Of course, readers of FR remember quite well that the pro-Isreal students were cornered and threatened by a big mob of pro-palis. Can anyone dig up the original story?

The world has truly gone mad when twenty percent of Americans, a sizeable portion of the motion picture industry, and a majority of Muslims oppose the use of American arms to remove from power a regime that:

1. Has provided comfort and support to terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda.

2. Has subsidized the slaughter of innocents in Israel.

3. Is responsible for for the violent death of more Muslims than any other government over the last twenty years.

Since this reporterette refuses to be more specific about what really happened, maybe we should send her some friendly reminders at: Juliana Barbassa

What I never see reporters ask of the high schoolers and some college student: "Are you against the war as long as it gets you out of class and off campus?"

I have a question for the colleges/high school administrators - are they collecting state/federal funds for students who are not attending classes, but demonstrations? Are teachers, professors, administrators who walk off the job being docked their salaries and in some cases could this also not be considered striking?

I think parents/taxpayers should start demanding answers. After all we are constantly told there's no money for the schools ...

The students, including senior Ani Mockler, took turns using a bullhorn to shout their demands.

"I'm against the war and I'm against people who think we should be quiet at this time," said Mockler, 29, who has a niece in Kuwait serving in the military.<<<<<<

Hmmmmmmm.....senior, 29.....hmmmmmmm.......nuff said ;)

What a left-wing resume this girl has!! She has worked, interned for a who's who of Democratic, left-wing interest groups. I am shocked she does not list internship for NARAL in her resume.

Oh, and by the way, she is proficient in Word and Excel. LOL.

I actually graduated from this cesspool, I'm sorry to say. I knew something was rotten when they painted a Malcom X mural years ago and included anti-Semitic imagery. It didn't take long to go from that to Arab students attacking Jewish students and today's traitorous activities.

The simple solution is to expel these folks.

The simple solution would be to plug up the ventilation system and nerve gas the whole effing building. Then put the rest of the place to the torch.

We shouldn't be subsidizing treason.

Well, ahem, I have a PhD, tuition and stipend mostly funded by the federal government... and Kosovo and Bosnia both happened while I was getting my education. Somehow, I don't think it's an either/or proposition, as this young dim bulb seems to think.
