Tea Party blocked from immigration rally in DC


LINK

quote:

Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday's "Audit the IRS" rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that "your people" can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event.


quote:

Keep in mind, the immigration event is hosted by sitting members of Congress. The notion that citizens can't attend an event featuring duly elected Representatives in a public space is absurd.

"The Capitol police are violating our rights to assembly and association," Mooneyhan told Breitbart News. "How does our permit limit the rights of individuals to attend public events. It's intimidation."

Would love to see a march around the public streets from one event to the next.

Racist!

They don't want the tea party protest to look organized with a speaker then they would have to audit them again.

They are increasingly caring less about who knows it. They are invincible. Bet they can't believe how easy it has become to change this country into USSR west.

Justify this?

Well to start, the OP left this part out:

quote:

The activists' presence at the immigration event on the east side, supposedly violates the terms of the Tea Party's permit.


This is Capitol Hill police. Their job is to protect order at the Capitol. Take your tin foil hat off. Over-zealous police work does not mean Obama is calling from Ireland making these police make people at a rally abide by their permit.

I haven't followed this issue but this is almost certainly the correct answer.

You need a permit to attend a public press conference?

I guess we can determine just how interested the IRS protestors really are in their cause.


Screw this boring crap! Lets go to the other party.

Btw, why didn't Goehmert step in to stop this "Injustice"?

Calling it a press conference doesn't make it a press conference:
quote:

The Iowa lawmaker — who earned the ire of the White House last week for a proposal that would require the deportation of the children of illegal immigrants — began speaking around 9 a.m. in front of a crowd of about 300 on the East Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

Each and every time anything happens, conspiracy nuts on this board put on their tin foil hats. See infantry.

You asked for a comment from me. I made it. Tin foil thread based on a link from a tin foil site.

If I go to capital hill with the intention of attending both rallies, I am forced to choose only one because of the organizers' permit?

My query referred to the OP, not subsequent posts.

Again, who said that? From my perspective Government is the problem - not any particular group/branch/administration.
You may do better not to assume so much.

I'm just waiting for the day when you progressives stop with the ad hominem attacks. I tried to be kind in my first reply to you when I implied you could do better than ad hominem, but I guess I was wrong since you did it again.

I still think it beneath you.

1. I'm not defending what the police supposedly said on a voicemail and in fact called it overzealous.

2. The voicemail supposedly said to the organizers of the other rally "your people" which I assume means they don't want one rally walking over to another rally disrupting things at the Capitol.
3. Not every post from a biased blog is true and not every police action is a political conspiracy.

You clearly don't read this board if you don't see there are conspiracy nuts that interpret every event, from the Boston bombing to this as being an action from the White House pulling strings.

Eta and your above it all is BS since you specifically called me out as you did others in this thread where we weren't involved.

I thought you were better than that. I was wrong.

There is never a time on this board where there is not one thread on the first page not concerning a conspiracy. If you think that is normal then that's your opinion. IMO it's nuts.
