Oh the Humanity!

Indymedia Watch has some funny commentary concerning some anti-meat activists who chained themselves to a meat packing plant. They then complained that “excessive force” was used to cut them loose so that the folks who worked at the plant could do their jobs.

What I find interesting about this article at Perth Indymedia is how dissenting comments are not removed like our friends at Indybay. I may disagree with the action and the biased reporting that this article represents, but I do respect their acceptance of dissent on their ‘news-wire’. For example:

“Leftist love victim hood, in their pathetic little pseudo-culture victim hood is power. Each of them jockey energetically for the title of Most Oppressed, so they can lord it over the others. This explains to the rest of us their revolting compulsion to hysterically complain and cry abuse at the drop of the hat, while taking for granted their own right to disrupt others, damage their property and act as if they are above the law.”

Would a comment like that ever stay on Indybay? I think we already know the answer to that question.

!UPDATE!

It seems my compliments for an Indymedia site were short-lived. The article has been removed. You can read about it here.

(The previous deleted post was my own).

I go and give an Indymedia site a little bit of credit, and they go an ruin it.
