From the NZHerald, comes this story about a New Zealand peace activist who is facing serious assault charges after he allegedly punched a rock singer in London, leaving the man in a coma.

Christiaan Briggs, 30, who spent three weeks in Iraq with the Truth Justice Peace Human Shield Action Group in 2003, allegedly punched 19-year-old Billy Leeson, causing the rising rock star to hit his head on the ground.

Dude, where is the peace? Where is the tolerance?

same question should be asked of the Grand Inquisitor, Torquemada, and many religious leaders. People of peace and love end up being the most fierce and violent in defense of their beliefs.

Kind of a quandry they find themselves in. No one will listen to their shrill message, so they need to get attention somehow, but they can't go ballistic because they are "non-violent." Hmm, what to do, what to do....

PETA: Waste of oxygen, as far as I am concerned. THey started out OK, but then followed the ACLU model of business: sue 'em all, let the court sort them out.

It is hypocrisy, pure & simple. These people just aren't bright enough to see the position they've put themselves into with their kooky belief system.

Q: How do you get peace?
A: With a knife.

The activists know this, even though their hypocrisy forbids them from admitting it.

I always heard it like this:

How do you get peace?

With a big stick.

Same principle. But those crazies will never admit it.
