Arrests, rhetoric highlight protests (FReeper vs. Beckerhead Crawford)
You just knew it would come to this!
Arrests, rhetoric highlight protests
By Thaddeus DeJesus and J.B. Smith Tribune-Herald staff writers

CRAWFORD - With five days left until the end of anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan's vigil near President Bush's ranch, Crawford became protest central Saturday as supporters and opponents of the Iraq war rallied, marched and simmered in 101-degree heat.

A handful also got themselves arrested, including a protester whose anti-Sheehan sign was deemed unnecessarily offensive by organizers of a large pro-Bush rally. The man carrying the sign became violent when he was asked to put it down.

Ken Robinson, of Richardson, Texas, who described himself as a Vietnam veteran, was carrying a sign at a You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy! rally. The sign read, How to wreck your family in 30 days by b**** in the ditch' Cindy Sheehan. [NOTE: The placard also promoted third-string hate radio host Glenn "Beckerhead" Beck -- with his name misspelled!]

Kristinn Taylor, an event organizer with FreeRepublic.com [NOTE: ...not to mention a hothead wingnut notorious himself for his hateful smears of many people to the left of Mussolini], heard about the sign and rushed up to Robinson.

"This is our rally and you can't do that here," he said, only for Robinson to insist he was within his rights.
Oh, yes, it IS your rally too, Kristinn. That placard that had you so worried -- and only because the real press, not CNS or NewsWhack or Matt Sludge -- because the rhetoric thereupon displayed is not terribly dissimilar to the smears and hateful posts about the mother of a dead Iraqi soldier to be found on FreeRepublic.com!

Getting a litytle worried that the world will see the politics of hate that you, AlabiGirl, RimJob, Thug from Upland and your circle jerk of FReeple Sheeple have helped to foist on our nation?

2. Hmmmmmmm...
<i>including a protester whose anti-Sheehan sign was deemed unnecessarily offensive by organizers of a large pro-Bush rally.</i>

A person who thinks he has the right to go kill people to make them believe as he does thinks he has the right to use violence to make people believe like he does.

I'm so shocked my nose is bleeding.

I hope they kicked his ass.
