Peaceful protest should be allowed and in some cases encouraged, but there is a time and a place for it. The radical left continues to embarrass itself with its hateful inauguration protests, which, by the way, in some cases have not been peaceful. I am not saying ban these protestors, but less radical people on the left should try to influence or stop such childish, unseemly behavior. Protesting the inauguration is a disgrace to the country, and an embarrassment to the left. Not once have conservatives, Republicans, or right-wingers openly protested the election of a Democrat. There is a reason: we have far more class than the left. Then again, this behavior can only hurt the left further. Have at it!
