Protest Concert at Democratic National Convention by DLOOS

On August 27th (Wednesday) a protest concert was staged outside the D.N.C. in support of Iraq Veterans Against the War. It started as a 2-mile march across Denver to the Pepsi Center. A mass of what was said to be between 4,500 to 6,000 people gathered outside the Pepsi Center, and refused to stand in what was designated as the protest zone, dubbed the Freedom Cage. Most of the protesters just relaxed, smoking weed and playing dice. Performers included Flobots, The Coup and Rage Against the Machine, who for the first time in their career, played a show which didn’t involve the audience going into a violent frenzy. Among the highlights of the day were RATM breaking into their MC5 cover “Kick Out the Jams” with assistance from MC5 guitarist himself, Wayne Kramer, dressed in all white with an American Flag painted guitar.

           Last night, two presidents graced the stage at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.  The first was former President Bill Clinton.  Clinton’s speech was honest and supportive of Obama.  Bill apparently still has the heart of the party, because the crowd didn’t sit down for a good five minutes before his speech.  His support of Obama may have even been more effective than his wife’s was.  I thought I’d throw in a little Chappelle for some laughs.

 

           Next was Joe Biden.  Biden hit the stage with a lot of applause, but nothing close to Clintons welcome.  Biden’s speech I feel was solid, but it was the weakest of all of the main speeches of the convention.  He spoke to all of the things that were said before, and had some inspiring stories about his childhood.  He did his job of solidifying Obama’s American story.  Luckily, Biden had a secret weapon to win the crowd over.  Check the video.  Remember when I said that 2 presidents graced the stage, well here’s the second.
