Activists - "We're not interested in talking"

Well, this guy pretty much confirms my suspisions of the "activist industry"...
"We weren't interested in talking to Bernier," said Patrick Cadorette, 33, a member of the anti-war group Block the Empire. "We went to disrupt the meeting."
Humm... maybe that's why we don't like listening to the likes of you. Did that thought ever occur to you?

Interesting life this guy leads too... just Google him. Looks like your typical "professional protester" to me.

How's this for a "mission statement" from "Block the Empire"?
Block the Empire-Montreal is an anti-authoritarian, direct-action collective opposed to war and militarization, and their roots and manifestations: colonialism, imperialism and capitalism. We seek to expose the links between capitalist globalization and patriarchy, racism and all forms of oppression, both here and abroad. Our work locally aims to disrupt and directly impact the interests of those who are actively complicit in these systems, from companies who fuel and profit from war and occupation, to the supporters and outposts of US Empire and the Canadian state. We endorse the People's Global Action (PGA) hallmarks, and we act in direct solidarity with all those on the frontlines of resistance and struggle against occupation and exploitation - from those resisting the racist "War on Terror" in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia, to the struggle for indigenous sovereignty here on Turtle Island (occupied North America).
Well Mr. Cadorette, if that's how you feel about it... why are you still residing in the "occupied territories" of North Ameri... er, "Turtle Island"?

I say we do him a favour... let's vote HIM off the island. ;-)

    I was at the dinner. the crowd was openly hostile to the "protester. There might have been 8 or 9 who were taken away. They were given the opportunity to wait and ask questions, but they refused. There were left leaning people sitting with me who said these people are the lunatic fringe.
