Hi, Jack. Seems the meeting was Hi Jacked by the crowd.

No harm, no foul by the LOWV's. Just unprecedented.

Reminds me of "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington". I highly recommend the movie to everyone this election season.

Jack, so when Code Pink disrupts Congressional hearings does this mean their freedom of speech is being violated?

You need to watch the video again. This is not even comparable to Code Pink. These are "the people", not an activist group. The normal procedure of saying The Pledge Of Allegience was bypassed and "the people" got it straightened out. Not even close.

You misheard. The moderator said something like, It's not been our custom to say the Pledge of Allegiance at these type events."

The people are not being disruptive and wanted to follow procedure. Code Pink wants to disrupt, not follow procedure. Not even close.

No, that is not what she was going to say. She got cut off in her lame explanation by the people. The people have spoken and she got drowned out. Same thing is going to happen on Nov 2. The people will speak and the elitist liberal Marxist thugs are going to be silenced.

The moderator said that the Pledge was not a part of the program.

Anyone that distrupts a Congressional hearing gets kicked out.

The people said it was. We disagree. Take us to court.


Oh RAH go USA

but that has little to do with if these peoples right to free speech was violated. And since you are the one making the accusation that their rights were violated it is up to you to prove a rights violation.

I'm showing what happened when an elitist pig tried to shut the people up. That was my point. I don't have to do anything or prove anything.

Yes, she's an elitist pig. There is absolutely no reason for her to put the cabosh on The Pledge of Allegiance. She needs to lighten up and so do you, my friend.

Wow. Good thing the lady isn't a member of our forum. You'd get an infraction. ;-)

I know that. I've already received a warning. This is why your pals are going to get tossed out on their collective asses on Nov 2. Who are you going to give an infraction to for that?
