From my blog http://www.polizeros.com/2003/10/05.html#a2736
The protest was um, spirited, as there were some seriously lummoxed-brained Arnold supporters who came close to physically threatening Code Pink people. One particularly obnoxious member of the Arnold cadre spat on me. At one point he was inches away from two middle-aged women screaming in their face they were too ugly to grope. Is this what California can look forward to if Arnold is elected?
So, as a diversion, I started chanting "Achtung" at them which did two things. 1) It diverted them from
Code Pink women to me, 2) backed them off and quieted them down. Should I not have stooped to their level, if indeed I did? I dunno, but I did find some of the Arnold people theatening and felt they needed to be backed off. Ignoring them didn't seem to work.
Someone showed videos of Arnold groping women in Rio. The Arnold office campaign manager ran outside, paled a bit as he watched the videos, then scurried back inside.
