Rightwingers finally outraged over "Free Speech Zones" at presidential events

Drudge has an outraged headline up on his site - after following the link to Politico, the article is flooded with the usual dumb hysteria about a "dictator" and a tyrant" and proclamations of "Amurica is a free speech zone!" from angry baggers.

As an antiwar activist herded into many a free speech zone during Dubya's visits to my town from 2001-2009, I can't help but wonder where these folks have been.

3. Where were the tea partiers, today? There were zero requests for demonstration permits

Do they just not have the intestional fortitude for winter time protests?

4. That is absolutely hysterical

but not all that surprising. Have you noticed how they often want us to apply our standards to them, while they get to apply ours to them? Doesn't necessarily work that way.

5. And Obama has the full powers of the USA Patriot Act that they all supported in 2001

Turnabout is a bitch, isn't it.

6. At an event as big as this, security should be the main concern...

 

The safety of the POTUS trumps a group of people holding misspelled signs.

7. Haha! Of course they are. Were there even any protests worth mentioning?

On the bright side, hopefully today's events result in more Google searches for things like "Free Speech Zones" and "Stonewall"

8. There was one guy in a tree




The man, who held a circular sign calling for a ban on abortion, had climbed to the top of a skinny pine tree in the front middle of the crowd. He wailed throughout the ceremony from start to finish: "Think of the blood of the babies! Democrats are baby-killers! What about the babies! Stop Obama!" It was unclear who the man was.

9. I wish there had been a bear waiting for him at the bottom of the tree

They he'd know what it's like to be stalked.

11. Given the violent proclivities of the far right...

Their misspelled signs are the least of their worries.

12. My heart bleeds for them

Too bad they weren't in these free speech zones when Dumbya was Pres, or any of the other times.
At least now they know how it feels.
