How to silence silly protesters

Keep on offending them... (both stories found via www.tonguetied.us)

Voices silent, mouths gagged with rope ? students stood hand-in-hand outside Hughes-Trigg Student Center and on the main quad for two hours Wednesday in a silent protest against intolerance and hate.

Throughout the day, participants will dress in black, wear black cloth gags and maintain silence in protest of recent articles in Rumpus and the Yale Herald that they say reflect "racial insensitivity toward Asian Americans and other minority groups," according to the group's statement, which participants will hand out as a substitute for speaking.

I, for one, would value the peace and quiet. Of course, make sure the group you offend doesn't have a tendency to begin riots or bomb places instead.
