Protesting Protestors

I propose a new law: Protests should be allowed only if the people doing
the protesting are actually the ones with a grievance. In this day and
age, the art of the protest has become such that protestors organize,
hire professional people and people off the street to add to their
numbers, take classes on how best to make nuissances of themselves, go
out of their way to make life as miserable as possible for as many
people as possible, most of whom have or had absolutely nothing to do
with what is being protested, then expect to have generated a spirit of
goodwill among those whose lives they disrupted. "I'm going to make you
late for work, and show up at work with dirt on your suit because of the
stones I've been throwing, as I protest something someone you never met
did to someone who is only related to me by money back in a time when
neither of us was alive; I expect you to be as inconvenienced as
possible by this, to then thank me, and as you pick up your unemployment
checkk, to tell the reporters how valid my cause is" is the basic
message these people are trying to get across here. Well, I protest.
