Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

I Wouldn't Have Believed It, Had I Not Heard It:

This officer evidently has no concept whatsoever of his oath of office.

When you have government officials and portions of the police supporting illegal Unconstitutional activities, then your country is in serious jeopardy. This officer, with the above supporting visual evidence, should be taken to his Internal Affairs unit immediately, at minimum.

It is still America as long as there are Americans refusing to be cowed. That officer will soon find out.

Being in law enforcement myself, I shake my head when officers such as he wear a uniform.

How about a size ten up his rear and a forceful removal of whatever passes for a badge that he's wearing?

I'll cut to the chase: you'd have to tread mighty carefully because the officer is black. Simple as that.

This is where we are heading. We need to take back control in the next two elections or what we saw in this video will be all over our lives. They will tell us we can't say what we want on our blogs, the radio and eventually under our own roofs.

Why do you think that you must tread carefully if he is Black? The guy is clearly an idiot more concerned with a paycheck than following his oath. The guy who started the oath keepers was like that too until he had a revelation. A lot of law enforcement officers can be power hungry assholes and I've had a few run ins while driving myself.

Needless to say, I hope you don't retire any time soon because the Constitution should not become a forgotton document, and unfortunately people like that guy in the video have already forgotton who they are supposed to be serving.

Quarantining Dissent

How The Secret Service Protects Bush From Free Speech

by James Bovard, San Francisco Chronicle, January 4, 2003

When President Bush travels around the United States, the Secret Service visits the location ahead of time and orders local police to set up "free speech zones" or "protest zones," where people opposed to Bush policies (and sometimes sign-carrying supporters) are quarantined. These zones routinely succeed in keeping protesters out of presidential sight and outside the view of media covering the event.

When Bush went to the Pittsburgh area on Labor Day 2002, 65-year-old retired steel worker Bill Neel was there to greet him with a sign proclaiming, "The Bush family must surely love the poor, they made so many of us."

The local police, at the Secret Service's behest, set up a "designated free-speech zone" on a baseball field surrounded by a chain-link fence a third of a mile from the location of Bush's speech.

The police cleared the path of the motorcade of all critical signs, but folks with pro-Bush signs were permitted to line the president's path. Neel refused to go to the designated area and was arrested for disorderly conduct; the police also confiscated his sign.

Neel later commented, "As far as I'm concerned, the whole country is a free-speech zone. If the Bush administration has its way, anyone who criticizes them will be out of sight and out of mind."

Is there a difference?

Remember what the Bush-Bots used to say to those that spoke out against Bush and held anti-Bush signs? I do……”Speaking out against a setting President at a time of war is un-American.”

That is unless you disagree with him, LMFAO!

You can't have it both ways, I find this all really funny.

Mahndisa: I predicate my comment upon my experience.

Ranando: history. That mayhaps have been then -- and I do not acknowledge freely such.

But that is not now. With Leftists, it is ALL about the NOW.

Further: you EVER see any cop make THIS kind of claim under Bush?

Eh, yes: NO.

I have to (grudgeingly) agree with Ranando: there were lots of instances where President Bush spoke in very carefully controlled invironments that kept naysayres far far away. Thats part of the problem on BOTH sides of the isle: we agree with what we agree with, and deny that which we don't. In order to uphold our own high morals, we need to admit to our past hipocracies and learn from them. (Isn't it said that he who forgets his history is doomed to repeat it?)

That said, the officer here is clearly an idiot. "It ain't america no more?" WOW. Now THAT'S telling it like it is!

Fairfax County Public Schools is this man's employer.

It's hard to dislodge him from his job. I know because I used to work as a teacher for FCPS.

Rep. Moran couldn't even be bothered to speak to his constituents: he had to get Howard Dean to do that.

By 2003 the Left had started to get into the assassination fetish about President Bush. AFAIK no one has done that with Rep. Moran or Howard Dean. Zombietime has a nice retrospective of the Bush = Hitler signs through the years, and Bin's Corner has a few others from Zombietime featuring at least one from 2003 with a death threat to Bush on it.

Now think far, far back to... the Clinton Administration: how many signs with death threats were there against him? The ones I remember were at WTO meetings and other international gatherings and those came from the 'protesters' in cities to riot... those are, almost overwhelmingly, on the political LEFT.

It is not good that freedom of speech has been debased to death threats against Presidents, and given that the majority of assassination attempts come from the Left part of the spectrum Presidents do have something to worry about. The three assassinations or attempted assassinations by individuals identified as being on the Right are: Schrank, Pavlick and Looper.

Notice how famous they are?

Those on the Left: Pendergast, Zangara, Oswald, the three convicted of the Malcolm X assassination, Moore, White, and FARC.

Most folks can ID Oswald, know about Malcolm X and have a faint idea about the Narco-Marxist terror group FARC.

Of all the assassinations in US history against US persons of note there has been exactly ONE against a US Representative or candidate running for that level of office. There have been TEN against Presidents over that same period.

There is a problem comparing a cowardly representative unwilling to speak for himself and Presidents. One tends to get death threats on them that have a ten times more likely chance of something happening than the other.

Presidents will continue to need protection as long as the Left remains most uncivil about its activities and feels that any time is a good time to put out a death threat against a President of either party.
