Protesting Like Morons

Activists marched in the streets and stripped on the beaches in an attempt to derail a meeting of the World Trade Organization, at which representatives of 146 countries will try to increase global commerce without throwing millions out of work.

This raises the question, "So what????" Do these activists think that they are the only people stripping and laying out on the beach in Cancun, Mexico? In Cancun, boobs are as common as grains of sand, so who the hell is going to pay attention to a group of protesters who disrobe and make letter shapes in the surf? The WTO probably saw them and thought, "Oh look, more US tourists getting drunk, naked, and spelling out their Greek letters on the beach. Ho-hum."

It seems as if the activists could have planned this out a little better and come up with something a little more disruptive or meaningful than simply showing some skin.......like everyone else who goes to that vacation spot. If this meeting had been held in New Orleans would this activist group have lifted their shirts, gathered beads and gotten hammered? Great thinking people. You have really made a statement.......mostly about how limited your ideas are, but you still made a statement. BRAVO!!!! The world is a better place because of you.

Like your topic header says, these professional protestors are morons. I wonder what stripping on the beach( especially leftist earth-mama types, and hippie men wearing batik sundresses and birkenstocks) will achieve. Given what hippie earth-mamas and look like, they are more likely that they will turn off spectators, and more likely to make people not view these activists and the causes they espouse favorably.
I used to be a lefty, environmentalist type iwhen I attended the Univ of Michigan, and one tink that made me turn away from the Left was these stupid, skanky, smelly enviro-activist types. made me think hard, and examine why I was hanging out with those folks, and then I changed schools from the School of natural resources to becoming an Economics major!!!

Now, going by the pix CNN provided with the story, hippie earthmommas can sometimes look mighty fine. ;)

I must say however, the big pile of non-degradable looking trash one of the protestors left their three year-old sitting in seems highly ironic.

I agree that some people should not get naked and participate in this protest simply because their being naked would be very disturbing. I used to think that there was no such thing as "bad naked," but then I saw the movie "About Schmidt" and saw Cathy Bates naked.........my opinion changed. Now, if she threatened to get naked as part of this protest, the tourism board of Cancun may have cancelled the WTO's meeting. That might actually be a good strategy for them.

What these ant-WTO, anti-Globo types need to do is this: (1) get off the damn tree, and (2) take a bath using soap and a washcloth, (3) lay off the patchouli, and (4) dress in clother that have been washed recently, and (5) take a good look around yourselves - see how you are percieved by people, and maybe realise how the far-out behavior and the funky clothes etc do more to drive away people like me who are likely to be sympathetic.
