We need to review the definition of protest in the historical sense.


Take the peasants in France in 1789. Take the Sons Of Liberty in Boston, 1773. The suffragettes. Birmingham Alabama, 1963.

What do these have in common? Marginalized, powerless people standing up for their rights as human beings. Pence is not that. He is protesting protesters. He wants them to sit down and shut up because he doesn't believe their claims. Stop searching for moral equivalence everywhere to rationalize your self-centered POV.
