Protest This!

"We protest!".

OK, what will we protest? Lack of food? Shelter? Clothing? Inhumane working conditions?

No, that would be protest African-style.

In the West, we have higher, more delicate sensibilities. Like western consumers some of whom are apparently disturbed by the use of a different font in the IKEA catalog. We could, perhaps, protest that.

Or, in the case of "Hanoi" Jane Fonda, the leftist's leftist:

"We protest the use of Tel Aviv to rebrand Israel."

Yeah, that's it; we'll protest marketing-style re-branding.

And that's the way we-think-thou-dost-protest-too-much Ball bounces.

PS -- Long live Israel.
