Bikers Wage War On Peace

Earlier, the Clog asked where we could find inane Berkeley drama [1] if the tree-sitters leave, but perhaps we spoke too soon. On Saturday, a group of over 200 bikers descended on Shattuck Avenue to peacefully demonstrate their support for the troops.

Few aren’t familiar with the demonstrations [2] surrounding the Marine recruiting center, but now the Clog wonders if the bikers were staging a counter-protest.

And if every protest has a counter-protest, then the counter-protest needs a counter-counter protest. While the bikers were on one side of Shattuck, a group of anti-war demonstrators were on the other side bringing yin to the yang–or yang to the yin, if you prefer it that way.

In any case, we think Voltaire put it best when he never said, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
