When I first got there, I saw police ejecting a woman with a sign that said "How can you pull yourself up by your bootstraps if you have no boots?"
So when I saw a little crew of lefty attention whores enter the area where I was standing, I asked the cops to remove them. Their answer? "We ask them to leave, but if they refuse and they're not causing any trouble, we let them stay."
I went through four or five more cops, all giving me the same stock answer, before I was directed to the guy in the white shirt (lieutenant). The cops surrounding him wouldn't let me talk to him directly, but one volunteered to give him the message. I said, "The message is that you are abridging our free-speech rights by allowing the opposite point of view to appear at our demonstration."
So the cops go and surround these people, with cameras going all around them. The lefties had even brought their own cameraman. It took about 15 minutes but they finally marched the trespassers out of there, with everyone clapping and cheering. My guess is that someone called a higher-up, but maybe not.
The sign said "Abortion is health care, and health care is a right."
Ironically, the woman was wearing a red T-shirt that said "Education Lifeguard" on the back.
Later I saw what was probably a real infiltrator, not just an invading lefty. He had a large, very clear sign on a stick, facing the traffic, that said, "Defenestration, not Nationalization." I think he was banking on the fact that no one would know what "defenestration" meant. I asked him to put the sign down, as it was giving the demonstration a bad image. He was very clever. He said, "This refers to the Czech Republic." I said, "Jan Masaryk?" He said, "No, it happened in the seventeenth century. Some people were pushed out windows and fell in a pile of manure, so no one was hurt." ??????
I couldn't get him to put the sign down, and was reluctant to go back to the cops after being so aggressive about the pro-abort lefties. After a little while, I noticed that the sign was down, but I wonder how many people saw it and thought we were advocating assassination, or whether any media people took pictures of it.
The sad part of this is that no one else was confronting either the lefty group or the guy with sign. The crowd did not seem to be an Internet-type crowd--mostly radio people--so they were not that aware of the infiltration problem.
“Defenestration” is foreign enough to American politics to be viewed figuratively. Wouldn’t we all want to toss all the Rats and most of the Rinos out a window, figuratively speaking, and it would be fine to us if they landed on feather pillows as long as they stayed out. But the explanation was bizarre. These lefties haven’t even passed Infiltration 101.
