Fox Reporter Assaulted By Anti-war Protestors In Denver

August 24th, 2008 3:30 PM

The Democratic National Convention hasn't even begun, and the protestors are out trying to Recreate 68.

For those unfamiliar, the group "was created for all the grassroots people who are tired of being sold out by the Democratic Party," and are gathering in Denver to "resist a two-party system that allows imperialism and racism to continue unrestrained."

High profile activists such as Cindy Sheehan and Cynthia McKinney have already joined the festivities.

On Sunday, Fox News's Griff Jenkins tried to speak to these folks as they marched in Denver, but was instead verbally assaulted (video embedded below the fold courtesy of our friend Johnny Dollar, vulgarity warning, photo courtesy Rocky Mountain News):

Readers should be advised of some of the attendees:

The Re-create 68 Alliance also announced that anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and Green Party Presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney and Green Party Vice Presidential candidate Rosa Clemente will be joining their historic line-up of speakers who include Ida Audeh, Kathleen Cleaver, Ward Churchill, Mark Cohen, Chairman Fred Hampton Jr., Larry Hales, Larry Holmes, Ron Kovic, Glenn Spagnuolo, Pamela Africa, King Downing, Jenny Esquiveo, Mumia Abu Jamal - Current Political Prisoner (Recorded from Death Row for the DNC), Gloria Estela La Riva, Ricardo Romero, Natsu Saito, Ann Erika White Bird, and others.

Given the participation of Sheehan, McKinney, and Churchill, one has to wonder how much attention these protests will get from media looking to do everything within their power to make it look like Democrats are all unified behind Obama.

Stay tuned.
