Speaking truth to sour

Obviously lots of money involved in this effort - those nifty placards would not come cheap!
Interesting reaction to his words by the majority of the crowd - the overwhelming response seemed to be mild shame and embarrassment - they knew they were wrong but felt compelled to continue.
Back to the placards again - I didn't see a single person holding a homemade one - makes this demonstration look awfully staged. What did the organizers do, invade a homeless shelter and bribe people to form the protest? Kind of looks that way.
I was overcome several times with the urge to pat that guy on the shoulder and shake his hand - sadly he was wasting his breath
