PGHA: What do the protestors want?

This weeks PGH Assignment was pretty straightforward. What do the protestors want?

I thought long and hard about this and this is what I came up with:

They want freedom from a Fascist Government that won’t let them say what they…
Oh wait, if that was true, they wouldn’t be able to protest. Never mind.

They want peace. That’s why they threaten to disrupt the police and severely beat anyone who disagrees with them.
Oh Kay… never mind.

They want respect. That’s why they are willing to parade naked through the streets of New York City.
Yeah right. That’ll get you respect. Maybe in San Francisco.

They want the truth. And they’ll say anything to get it…
Is anyone else getting confused here?

They want justice. And they’ll break any law to see that they get it.
OK, this is the only one that I see actually happening. It’s just, they never recognize incarceration for their crimes as justice.

The want to be heard. That’s why we have been listening to them for 40 years.
Now that we’ve heard them, why won’t they shut up?

They want to get rid of the state controlled media.
Yeah, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN are all realllllly friendly to the President.

You know what? I don’t think that they really know what they want. So what do we care. It’s not like they’ll ever stop protesting. Even if they could figure out what they really want, and they were given it.
