War Protesters, What Can I Say

I keep reading these whining reports from war protestors claiming that other people are infringing on their freedom of speech. They generally go something like this:

"I was just standing on the street corner with my 'I Hope You and All Your Children Die You Filthy Capitalist Swine.' sign and some people walked by and gave me a dirty look. I was outraged. I guess freedom of speech doesn't mean anything anymore. This has now turned into a full fledged Nazi regime when atrocities like that can occur."

Or maybe like this:

"We were just standing there, shouting, 'We Deserved Nine One One!' when this fascist police officer strutted up and said we couldn't block the entrance to the hospital. Then he put his hand on my shoulder! I mean this is supposed to be America and the police assault you like that, right out in broad daylight, and get away with it."

It sometimes makes you frustrated that while we may be removing Saddam Hussein and saving the lives and futures of millions in both Iraq and the US, if there couldn't possibly be some way to make these losers have to live under Saddam's rule for a year or so, then see if they want to whine.
