The First Time as Trage...yea, yea, I know

From here:
There was a small, nonviolent, "mild" anti-war protest in Denver today, timed to the upcoming Democratic convention. The protest organization is stupidly named "Recreate 68," but has specifically decried the violence at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. Fox News of course wanted to cover this boring thing in the most insane way possible, with race riots and burning flags and naked hippies on PCP. None of that was available, so instead Fox sent a nerdy correspondent to go right into the middle of a throng of protesters trying to march in the opposite direction. The protesters managed not to collide with the camera crew, so no one was hurt, but they refused to grant interviews and started chanting "Fuck Fox News," which means they are Censor Fascists who hate the First Amendment. (emphasis added)
Now, way back when, when the Hog Farm (see picture) visited Antioch College at the behest of Warner Brothers to film the ultimate "hippie movie," they performed a concert on the lawn. Members of the aforesaid HF were dispersed across the grass in various attitudes of hippie repose, doing hippie thinks and smoking hippie stuff, while the band played Hendrix and JA ("airplane"). The students were so pissed off at being compromised that the entire scene was rendered useless by the louder and louder chant of "Fuck Warner Brothers."

The next time will be Farce (sic).

(I'll post some pics from that concert from way back when.)
