A group of protesters standing at the corner of 100th Avenue West and Edmonds Way made their feelings known to passing drivers Thursday night. It was part of a nationwide protest in support of protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election. .

  1. Can’t believe I was rounding a corner at 100th and a man came out and stood right in front of me holding a sign and looking mad. I could have ran him over for it was a green light. I don’t think protestors should try to obstruct regular vehicles who are going about their business. Very disturbing for an older person at night driving.

  2. Who has the time to do this stuff? We get It. You watch Rachel Maddow (aka the left version of Alex Jones). It was way too dark and too distracting on that corner. Put your energy towards something positive.

    1. Alex Jones works out of a strip mall in Texas peddling conspiracy theories on his radio show and a website responsible for “pizzagate”. Rachel Maddow is an Emmy Award winning political commentator with a doctorate in politics from the University of Oxford…but ok.

      1. …and Maddow gets rich pedalling Russia Conspiracies. Hillary cheated in the Primaries. A Clinton rape-raped somebody. As a vet, I refused the Anthrax vaccine. Mueller was the moron who hamhanded that investigation, blaming the wrong guy, using dogs to sniff anthrax and lead him to the terrorist.

  3. It’s good to see that some people care enough about our fragile democracy to stand out in the cold and make their views known, as is their right. Others may patronize them, call this group’s motivations into question, even sink so low as to denigrate their intelligence and sources of information (through assumptions and false comparisons, and without of course citing any substantive reasons or facts). It is the strength and pride of America that concerned citizens care enough to demonstrate. Thank you.

  4. Hmmm, who has time for this? Oh, I don’t know? How about people that care about what’s happening to this country. I am going to make an assumption that a white male made that comment because they have no worries. If my assumption is wrong, I apologize. But women, POC, LGBTQA, immigrants et al do have a lot to be concerned about. So the people you’re seeing are moms, dads , grandmas, grandpas, sisters, brothers, kids, families that give a damn. Unlike tRump’s rallies, we don’t get paid. Just remember: this country has never done the right thing because it was the right thing to do. Our country has only done the right thing when citizens rise up and say NO MORE! If women hadn’t risen up, we wouldn’t have a voice today. This administration is trying to take our voices away and I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit on the couch while the country—and world for that matter—implode. So next time get out of your car and join us instead of complaining!

  5. On the MoveOn site that initiated this protests around the county their are a number of sign suggestions for the event. The use of the MillerCoors trade marked material was not among the suggested signs. The recommended signs were suppose to be build around “No one is Above the Law” theme. The link below details what were the suggested materials, chants, talking points, etc. This link also details what local groups are suppose to do in the event of Mueller’s firing. Rather than tossing barbs at each other we could all go to the link and learn all we need to know about all the plan of actions. While I am not a trademark infringement expert, sources on the internet seem to suggest using the MillerCoors trademarks is a violation of the law.

    1. It’s the tiny hands signs that are offensive, suggests that the POTUS has a small penis. Its extremist. And theyre wearing wearing a p-hats. Trump was making fun of Hollywood, saying you can’t grab women. He was playing a part on Days of Our Lives where a woman threw herself at him because he was rich. He said the premise of the script was not true and even told a story where he tried to get with a woman, took her furniture shopping, called himself a b- because she simply shot him down despite his efforts. Watch Trump’s appearance on the Soap Oprah, he was making fun of the script, talking to Hollywood how they talk, in a way they understand. On the other hand, in a world with zero nuance, a better point can be made. Imagine if women wore Don’t-Bite-My-Lips-While-You-R*-Me Hats. Bill Clinton did that.

        1. Trump said he can’t get any woman he wants, then sarcastically said he can just grab them because he’s rich. Bush really seemed to like what he said, and crass sarcasm was a great way to get his point across. Did you want the Soap Opera? Didn’t you know that Bill Clinton, who has big hands, actually bit a woman’s lips while he had his way? Hillary Clinton, metaphorically speaking, held Juanita’s hands down for Bill. You guys are extremists, with no position to argue from.

  6. I was there at the protest. It is so great we live in a country that allows freedom of speech. If we don’t pay attention, that right may be taken away.

    1. Freedom of speech is part of our laws. Few limits are placed on “speech” except for “fire in the theater” stuff. In fact the courts have expanded “speech” to include dollars spent on election campaigns.

        1. Kavanaugh likes beer too, and a month ago that was a bad thing. Trump could very well appoint an RGB replacement, and these are the folks clawing at the door they’re closed out of. The pseudo Resist people are extremists, like Alex Jones, and simply not objective.

  7. Amazing anyone would worry about the Miller’s trademark except maybe Miller’s lawyers. Of course you could just as rationally argue that this was free advertising for Miller’s. Someone sees the sign and thinks , “gee, think I’ll go buy a six pack and watch the protests on “Rachael” since it’s ‘Mueller’ time.” Your fearless leader, Herr Trump, wants to manage his own investigation and you are worried about the Miller trademark. Talk about “who has time for this stuff?” Quick, better get back to your Fox News, I think Hannity just revealed that MoveOn is planning to boycott “Mueller” beer.

    1. The theme was “No one is above the law”. That should be true for all, politicians, protesters, media, and every day citizens. Some how pointing out what should be common to our dialog prompted comments like, “Your fearless leader, Herr Trump, ….” I cannot understand how a simple factual statement would prompt such a response. My thin skin is hurt but I will try to mend. As I suggested earlier, tossing barbs is what happens all to often when folks try to discuss facts and ideas is not the best plan to advance free speech. N. Brown, I am thirsty too, lets have a beer sometime and I will buy.

  8. Gee, thanks for explaining the theme. I should have got that, since Trump and his cronies are such paragons of virtue (what is it now, about 30 indictments and admissions of guilt)? I just finished reading Boys in the Boat which details a little bit about how Hitler and his Propaganda minister destroyed the free press in Germany and slowly turned the country into an anti Jewish terrorist nation responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people. Suggest you read it. Might tell you something about why this “fake news” clown shouldn’t be President, plus it’s a great story about some truly admirable local American athletes. Trademark infringement as a from of protest is breaking civil law, not criminal law. Big difference my friends.
