The difference in the ways in which the good guys and the bad guys protest has never been so apparent as it was yesterday in Amherst.

I feel like Amherst’s Larry Kelley and Turtleboy got off on the wrong foot. UMass students can’t stand the guy because he basically takes it upon himself to make sure parties don’t get too big. As a long time college town resident, and very active person in local politics, he’s frustrated with UMass kids who tie up resources and act a fool all over town.
But as it turns out his blog Only in the Republic of Amherst is probably the most reliable news outlet in the 413. He’s kind of like a Tracy Novick, except he’s not self-indulgent and he’s more often than not on the right side of things. Oh yea, and he’s got a drone that’s revolutionizing the way news is spread.
Anyway, we only bring this up because yesterday in Amherst supporters of Hampshire College held a “protest” in the center of town to protest the protesters who were protesting Hampshire College’s desecration of the American flag. The difference between this protest and the pro-American flag protest a week ago, is that these SJW’s purposely blockaded traffic and endangered innocent people who wanted nothing to do with either protest. And Larry Kelley’s drone caught it all on video:
And that about sums up the difference between the good guys and the bad guys. The good guys hold a peaceful demonstration in defense of the flag. Traffic is able to flow as normal. No one is denied the freedom to travel. No public roads are blockaded. It is supported by democratic mayors, congressmen, and state senators. And at the end of the day it shamed Hampshire College into doing the right thing by putting the flag back up.
But according to the protesters blocking traffic yesterday, they are the good guys:
“We are protected by the First Amendment and we should not be harassed for being allowed to speak our truth,” said Amaad Rivera, of Springfield, one of the organizers of Sunday’s rally on the Amherst Common. He argued that one of the benefits of living in the United States is the Constitution allows all people with differing opinions to be heard.
“Everyone has the right to represent the democracy any way they want,” he said. He said the tactics of those who feel it was wrong to remove the flag have been heavy-handed and in some cases hateful. Even Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno and several state legislators including Sen. Stanley Rosenberg, D-Amherst spoke against the decision.
“We wanted to meet hate with love,” Rivera said.
Is there anything more fraudulent then when these people, who are consumed with nothing but hatred, pretend that they are spreading love? Literally all they do is hate. They hate anyone who voted for the next President of the United States. They hate democracy because their candidate lost. They hate veterans. They hate police. They hate people without hyphenated last names. And they especially hate white guys who admit that their penis defines their gender.
Amber Cano-Martin, of Amherst, who also organized the event, held a sign saying “Hands off Hampshire College.” Since news about the flag controversy spread across the country, students and staff have been receiving hate email and otherwise been harassed about the issue, she said. “Our community will not tolerate this kind of bullying. We are going to stand up. We are standing up now and we will stand up again if necessary,” she said.
Lies. Just outright lies that Masslive has zero problem publishing. There was no “hate mail.” If there was they would’ve released it to the press. But there wasn’t. These are just professional victims doing what they do best – turning themselves from the aggressors into the victims.
Cano-Martin said she feels Hampshire College has been under attack since officials made the decision not to fly the flag.
The only thing under attack at Hampshire College were people who voted for Donald Trump:
Go ahead Amber Cano-Martin. Defend that.
Funny she should mention hate though. These people who are supposedly so against hatred sure do seem to hate a lot of things:
Not surprisingly the hyphenated white woman from Amherst thinks she’s one of the “good ones” because she changed her profile picture to black lives matter when all her white friends from the organic coffee shop were doing it:
Ironically she says that she is skeptical of white liberals in the BLM movement:
SJW popsicle headache right there. She also supports Korryn Gaines – the Baltimore woman who held her child hostage with a shotgun, turned it on a police officer after an 8 hour stand off, and ended up rightfully being shot as a result:
This is how dumb white people from Amherst with hyphenated last names convince themselves they’re making a difference. By defending terrible mothers who put shotguns to their child’s head.
Then there’s this poopsmooch:
Part of the concern for Cory Ellen Gatrall, a nurse who lives in Northampton, is the vitriol and hatred Hampshire College officials and supporters have faced during the time that the flag was removed. The issue is simply about a private college exercising its right to free speech and people should not be harassed because of the decision, she said.
Citizens should not be harassed? We agree. Perhaps Cory Ellen Gatrall should consider practicing what she preaches. After all, it was her band of merry men and women who jumped in front of a police car and blockaded traffic yesterday:
Is that a No on 2 sign? Ummmmm, dude that question failed a month ago. But OK!!
As you can imagine, Cory Ellen Gatrall has the complete SJW checklist going on on her Facebook page as well. She claims she was shutting down traffic because it was full of “racist hate.”
Evidently supporting the American flag, and the people who fought for it is “racist hate.” Oh yea, and the whole thing was led by a Latino veteran, but why let facts get in the way of a good SJW “everyone’s a racist except me and my hyphenated last name friends” rant?
Her friends also tell her that she’s very courageous for being scared of the results of a fair and democrat election:
She’s big into rocking the safety pin to fix racism:
But yet the day before she mocked white people doing the safety pin thing:
She’s admittedly “triggered” by all these Trump hoaxes:
And she wants all white families to sit down and have a heart to heart about their white privilege:
This was my favorite protester quote of the day though:
Tony Hall, of Northampton said he noted the leaders of the caravan did not even know how to get to Hampshire College when the vehicles had to turn around while protesters walked in the crosswalk. “They are not from our community,” he said.
Ummmm, dude – you’re from Northampton. Hampshire College is in South Amherst – two full towns and a big ass river away from Northampton. You also are not a student at Hampshire College. And 99.9% of the students who attend Hampshire College aren’t from Amherst either. But please, tell me more about how people who aren’t “from our community” can’t protest in town.
Anyway, these people are a never ending source of material, and we’re going to keep exposing their fraudulence one by one. Because they’ve gotten away with their bullshit for far too long, and on one ever calls them out on it. Those days are over. We live for this.
