Is that part of what "dem" means? You don't hear about Republicans demonstrating. Do only the Dems get coverage for demonstrating?
I don't recall hearing about Republicans demonstrating the Democratic National Convention in Boston, yet every day there are Democrats getting coverage for demonstrating the Republican National Convention.
Let's stop sugar coating the term; demonstration means "whining". Whining because others don't believe the way you do. Isn't trying to force everyone to do as you do and think as you do called Fascism?
What kinds of people are in these demonstrations? The homosexuals are demonstrating, minorities are demonstrating, the American Communist Party is demonstrating. Gee, why do organizations that these people not like Republicans?
