a bit of context

Over the weekend, I heard George W Bush thank the “Rolling Thunder” batch of bikers for standing up to Protesters who have been protesting the funerals of veterans.  Now, in this country when you hear “protesters” protesting veteran funerals, I picture a lot of people picturing — basically, flag-burning anti-war 60s style radical yippies.  For a bit of context, I feel the need to point out that the protesters “Rolling Thunder” stand in the way and of and offer a buffer area against are the followers and family members of Fred Phelps of “God Hates Fags” fame.
