Wow! I never thought I would see this in our country. What is that popular Tea Party saying, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”
I don’t know who the Gestopo tool is who is pushing the public around but if I were in the crowd I’d be getting his name and a badge number. I thought that a public park was open to everyone. At least that’s what it says on the Lafayette Park website, open all day everyday. What a wonderful surprise for all those visitors in the background. A real lesson in citizenship, at least as it’s practiced in the new regime.
I thought we fought a war about just this kind of thing. I know it was a long time ago but some schools still actually cover it in government class (those that aren’t taught but coaches that is). I didn’t think that embarrassing the “ruler” occasioned the suspension of a group of citizens “civil rights”. Where is the ACLU, where are the liberals, those bastions of “free speech” policies? Where are the Code pinkers, Barney Frank, GLSEN et al? Where are the movie stars, producers, directors and studio heads, where is Michael Moore, Janine Garafalo and Perez Hilton?
Of course the elitist media was there. You can clearly hear the reporter saying that it’s perfectly OK to close the park to the public, but to close it to the media is just ridiculous. He is a very unhappy talking head. I wonder if this will make the news tonight? Wouldn’t you just love to be a fly on the wall at the evening news meeting as they try to figure out how to spin this.
It’s pretty sad that the present administration is so lily-livered that a few gay military members could make they overreact and show their true nature. Even the evil Bushhaliburtoncheneyrove could take a protest or two outside the front door. Our president, the wuss.
