Protest Comparison

I watched a few Tea Party protest videos. Something began to strike me as incongruous. It started to dawn on me. Where was the rude name calling? Where was the stone throwing? Where was the beating up of the police with sticks? What kind of protesters where these?

Kindly old ladies, people in wheel chairs, toddler children held in the arms of parents. Crowds singing patriotic songs. I wonder if we understand this protest thing.
