She’s pimping for World Net Daily. Explains a lot.
I admire her courage - she was only saying what everyone was thinking.
The irony of being arrested for saying something inappropriate during a reading of the Constitution.
Cato’s blog has been around for some time. She is pretty legit as far as the birther movement goes. She is a constitutionalist.
I am thinking she set back the cause with her outburst and gave more credibility to the socialists who behave similarly.
Theresa Cao’s website might have some good information worth checking out.
A more perfect summary could not have been made. Kudos.
Well, we can fold our hands and wait the four years - that is what 0bama is counting on, or we can follow the lead of our forefathers and raise hell - I choose that latter.
well... they hadn't gotten around to reading the "freedom of speech" part (bill of rights) when she had her outburst
Apparently, they never did :(
You are pimping for Obama which explains a lot.
I hate Code Pink and I hate this outburst.
Don’t mind unfurling a sign but yelling out is disrespectful to the reading of the constitution.
The First Amendment does not give us the right to speak wherever and whenever we want. While I share (to some extent) her doubts about Obama’s birthplace, she did not have the right to interrupt a session of Congress with her outburst. Her message was not inappropriate, but the manner, time and place in which she delivered it was.
What if every visitor decided to yell out things during the reading? How about the protestors who interrupted Palin and McCain's speeches at the RNC? What if a bunch of gay marriage advocates show up in your church and start shouting homosexualist, anti-Christian slogans, during the entire service? Is all that speech protected by the First Amendment?
If a lefty had interrupted the reading shouting some left wing comment, I think nearly everyone here would support her arrest. We should be consistent. Of course, civil disobedience is a legitmate form of activism, but one should expect to be arrested if one engages in it.
I agree with your statement, but this was not the time and place to arrest someone. Maybe kick her out.
I would not support their arrest. And especially not if she was reciting the Constitution. I would always give more leeway for idiocacy at a political event, then some nonpolitical private event.
