Remind me, again, who the intolerant bigots are?
The police are investigating an assault Tuesday on Bald Hill Road.
The weapon of choice: soda, salsa, eggs …
“Your basic garden variety of food condiments,” Capt. Robert Nelson said Wednesday.
It started as the four men stood at the median on Bald Hill Road and East Avenue around 2:40 p.m. protesting against same-sex marriage.
The location, Nelson noted, afforded them a roomy median and prime visibility.
They caught the attention of a group of women in one of the cars.
The women, who apparently objected to their message, flung a soda bottle at the men and vowed to return.
And back they were, about 15 minutes later, hurling at the men a mélange of food ingredients and drinks and a full repertoire of profanities, Nelson said.
One of the women swashed a protester with pepper spray.
No one was hurt and no arrests have been made, Nelson said
Note the jocular tone Maria Armental applies to her reportage and, in the game that is becoming all too frequently appropriate, imagine how the story would be presented if the men had been protesting for same-sex marriage.
