"Just about every major change in this country to bring America closer to its ideals has been brought about by protest. The women’s suffrage movement, the Montgomery bus boycott, labor protests, the Stonewall riots – how much time do you have? If someone can call a group of armed ranchers occupying federal buildings over cattle grazing rules “patriots” while labeling one man sitting to protest the murder of thousands of American citizens “un-American”, it’s time for them to examine their biases and priorities."
