In my opinion anyone who is doing something against the law is a criminal first, not an activist.


thank you. you just confirmed my post.

I think someone needs to look up the word 'activists'. Activists doesn't come with automatic legitamacy. No one here is condoning such behavior.

So if you break the law trying to get your wife to the hospital, or when defending a friend, etc You are a criminal first and foremost and not a trying husband or friend. Becareful of such absolutes.

Don't take my argument out of context. You are comparing apples and bowling balls. And there is a certain amount of legitamacy in the word activist. Like Peace activist or gay rights activist. It is a matter of semantics. Calling someone who burns down million dollar homes an activist legitimizes illegal activity. Our country is based on laws. No one's personal agenda should be allowed to infringe on the rights of others.

Even "right wing" papers would call groups who released lab rats 'animal activists', not animal loving criminals.

You're stretching man.
