As early as the 1780s the principal antagonists in the society were no longer patriots vs. courtiers but had become democrats v. aristocrats.
Conservative blogger gives out free bongs to embarrass protestersBy David Edwards

James O’Keefe would be proud.
A conservative blogger has been accused of trying to give out marijuana bongs and Che Guevara rolling papers in Zuccotti Park in order to make Occupy Wall Street protesters look criminal.
New York City resident Joey Boots captured video of Evan Coyne Maloney being confronted by protesters after he allegedly tried to pass out the paraphernalia. At one point, Maloney is seen trying to hand a protester a pack of rolling papers with the image of Che Guevara.
One protester who got a peek at Maloney’s prepared questions noted that they were all “anti-liberal.”“Is Bill Clinton the bad guy?” the protester observed. “Is Barack Obama? Democrats are the bad guy? He’s doing this because he’s going to sell it.”
“I wish I could sell it,” Maloney replied.
“You’re a Fox News guy trying to make us all look bad with your anti-liberal — He just gave out — He’s trying to give people bongs to make us look bad!” the protester shouted. “Over there they gave out bongs. He’s like, ‘You answer, here’s a bong.’ Trying to get that one shot… All [Maloney's assistant] had was bongs, peace signs with marijuana and Che Guevara rolling papers. Three things when Fox News gets it, they’ll just clip that then it’s just like protesters accept it.”
Burton has not received much support for Amendment 48 from her most natural allies—the country's major pro-life groups. Heavyweights like National Right to Life and Americans United for Life are not backing it. "There are other ways to protect human life that we focus on because we believe they are the most effective," says Clark Forsythe, president of Americans United for Life. Although pro-life leaders generally agree with Burton that life begins at fertilization, they fear a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade would ultimately be slapped down by the Supreme Court—still at least one vote shy of an anti-Roe majority—setting back the movement. "The established pro-life movement feels … we should stop trying to overturn Roe because the time isn't right," says Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center, a conservative public-interest firm that has advised Amendment 48. "Then there is this huge grassroots movement saying it's immoral not to try and save innocent lives."
