Mayor: I’m sorry. Pirate: No, not that eye you freaking bigot… the other damn eye!

What part of “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Is so damned hard for the government to understand? “We don’t like how you’re protesting, so we’re going to shut you down. This small group of people is looting, so you all need to leave.” Why can’t we act this way about the 2nd amendment? Mass shooting events happening left and right don’t get guns taken away from other people. WE HAVE A RIGHT TO PROTEST. STOP SHOOTING AT PROTESTORS. And I’m sure some people are going to say “But some of the protests aren’t peaceful”, and again, MY rights don’t hinge on someone else’s behavior. If one guy in a crowd is shooting at people, police will target that guy, not the whole crowd. Their response to protesters needs to be focused, and non-violent.

He pops out his glass eye, holds it up to the mayor’s face and says, “Look at my eye and say you’re sorry.” Mayor giggles, protests march on.
