Code Pink Protestor Faces Police Brutality

H/T Feministing

No matter what you think of Code Pink and their activism, this woman did not deserve to be called a bitch and summarily thrown to the ground.  Watching the coverage of the DNC convention one would never believe that this kind of social protest occurred, and yet as this video and this story made clear, all was not peace and love. Social activism is part of a proud American tradition.  Stifling descent no matter how disagreeable is the surest path to fascism.
