So, does anyone care that we now have freedom of speech taken away by the GOP? Part of the Patriot Act?
I'm beginning to think no one cares, and I'm getting angrier and angrier at the Democrats for not speaking out against things like this.

"Stolen in the middle of the night" - mmm....must've been a Republican.
That's when they do their most dastardly deeds.
...like, the Patriot Act, or summoning the Preznit from vacation for the Schiavo affair.
Or failing to get His Highness off his ass in the middle of the night when one of the nation's historic cities - and one of the largest ports - is devastated by a hurricane.

OMG O'Reilly is such an dork. I can't stand him. He was building up with saying Cindy "threatened Hillary Clinton" and had me wondering, which is why I had him on. Then he finally shows her saying something totally harmless omg - you'd have to see it. Threat my ass. What a dork. It wasn't today, anyways, it wasn't outdoors.
Hoping we get some good pics soon. I can't believe this and of course MSN TV won't mention it because of the march this weekend. Won't want to draw attention to it. We'll see. Maybe I'm wrong.

The NYPD are an official disgrace !!!
Of course, we don't know that it was the NYPD or Republican imposters --- I hope Cindy and the organizer (and any other targets of this assault) are okay --- they should press charges !!!

I think we need an address to write to the NYPD to register complaints about this unnecessary and extremist behaviour on the part of the "NYPD" --- letters from six or seven, perhaps...

So the police of new york are turning into mafia thugs........They were after this guy for not getting a permit, pfft what freaking bullshit.
These "civil servants" should be ashamed of themselves. They can't arrest all of us and it doesn't matter what their orders are, we're taking over!!!!!!!!
It's time to press the useless democrats, like Hillary Clinton to stand up to this nonsense!!!!!
Hillary was never against the war, so of course shrill O'Reilly is right there to "support" her. Dumb little SOBs. Its time to END this game.....WE NEED TO FORCE THE DEMOCRATS TO STAND UP!!!!!

This is a great example of "freedom of speech" in America. How absolute is it?
If the Establishment doesn't want you to speak they ignore your request for a permit or 'usher' you off the streets if you speak without one.
Hitler or Stalin would've been impressed with this subtle use of power.

I'm just surprised the Bush Gestapo hasn't had Cindy arrested yet. When should we expect that?

What a crock, why wait for Cindy to start speaking befor making a move? She was late, cops could have done their thing with Zool even befor Cindy got there.
They were waiting for her, they wanted her.

So what's the status? Was Cindy arrested? Where is she now?
I have this creepy feeling they're going to pull something to try and take her to jail either at or before this weekend's rally.
To everyone going - y'all PLEASE be careful!!! I just can't see Karl Rove letting this rally go off without a hitch. What I'm worried about is "plants" to start violence, to give them a reason to arrest a bunch of people, and getting some people hurt. Call me paranoid, I don't trust these people as far as I can throw them.
Everyone remember, just like at the RNC earlier this year - be prepared to be arrested (they don't need a reason anymore). Before you go to the rally, write your attorney's name on the inside of your arm with indelible ink.

Sheehan’s Threats and Kerry’s Frets
The fur was flying at a Brooklyn church on Sunday, as leftist and anti-war, anti-Bush and anti-everyone-who-doesn’t-pay-her-homage Cindy Sheehan blasted Sen. Hillary Clinton. As she did with President Bush, Sheehan is demanding a meeting with Clinton. She said Sen. Clinton “knows the [Iraq] is a lie” and then accused her of placing her political ambitions ahead of expressing opposition to the war and that she is waiting for the best “political moment” to say it. Then Sheehan threw down the gauntlet to Clinton when she threatened: “You say it or you’re losing your job!” Reports are that that the liberal church assembly loved it! (Sher Zieve of Mensnewsdaily)

Nana, good point ! Don't you have to have a reason to be arrested even probable cause?
#14 So thats now a threat to tell someone you're losing your job? Wow, every day workers are hearing that. Plus I am saying that to every Republican up for re-appointment in 2006. So guess I'd better get a lawyer to bail me out.

Texaslady, :laugh: I have my bail money set aside!
And when are the politicians going to learn, they work for us, they can loose their jobs. And some of them need to! (when we can have legit elections)

I just hope Rove's gang keeps it up..let them bash a mom, it will bring out the activist in the mildest person.
The politicians will ONLY learn if they are kicked out, because it has been an easy ride with no accountability for a very long time.
What I read is, that even staunch Republicsn are not pleased with Bush's throwing money at Katrina and victims. You know you can always get a Republican's attention when you wave money in front of them.

Contact NYPD en-masse and tell them how you're pissed that they've put partisanship above fulfilling their duty to protect the public.
They've failed in their duties. Indeed, shame on them.
Diverting their resources to crushing free speech when they could be out stopping crime. Spineless cowards.

I wish I knew if she had been arrested, think Indymedia said they targeted one of her team, Zool. Bushco is worried and the treatment of a Gold Star mother will continue to be a problem for this now very visibly uncaring Regime.

Free Zool now!
Defend free speech in New York City!
video just before police moved in
"Cindy WAS in a free speech zone - The United States of America"
The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets and to steal bread. HG Well or Orwell?

Is anyone looking at what is going on in Binghamton, NY where The trial of the St. Patrick's Four is taking place?. They were acquitted a year ago on a minor charge of protesting at a recruiting office. The feds now have them up on conspiracy charges, the first federal charge of this type since the Vietnam War. It appears that the Bush administration is determined to crush any dissent. See http://www.pressconnects.com/ the Binghamton local newspaper.
