McCain Thugs At Work & Police Complicity / Video 2min

A Telling Thoughts comment:

I hope everyone is outraged by this disgraceful abuse by McCain’s agents and local authorities of a person’s democratic right to demonstrate in the United States. This lady was not protesting inside a meeting, she was standing quietly on a public thoroughfare. Librarians understand the need to be quiet! Three cheers for her grit anyhow![signature]

Scene: Outside the entrance of the scheduled John McCain Town Hall meeting July 7th in Denver Colorado USA.

 

Note: Progress Now captured this video of Carole Kreck, a 61 year librarian, waiting in line this morning at the Denver Center for Performing Arts to attend the John McCain town hall meeting. She held a sign that said “McCain = Bush.”  She was on public property at an event that was open to the public.McCain’s security detail told her to leave. The police were called and they issued her a ticket for trespassing and escorted her out.

  1. Picking on a 61 year old woman. The police should give them a ticket for calling them. How low will they go to deny what they are about? McCain should be ashamed.

  2. Gee, I thought this was a free country and that John McCain was a war hero who fought to preserve our freedoms.

    What authority does a McCain campaign cop have to call the police about a person on city property?

  3. If a McCain supporter was out there holding up a sign – would he/she have been asked to leave?? No- of course not. So what makes it that this peaceful woman holding up a sign suggests trespassing? The message?
    How about the message that this country is about free speech? Unless of course the candidate doesn’t want your message getting out even if it’s true.

    Haha – free speech is pretty much gone with Bush – and McCain does = Bush.

    I hope that peaceful lady sues the pants off the city because her rights to free speech have been violated. DISGUSTING – SHAME ON YOU McCAIN.

  4. What’s next? More Bush style loyalty oaths? This really does prove McCain = Bush.

  6. THis guy is just following orders like the Gestapo. He has no comprehension that he is violating this poor women’s right of free speech. This is taxpayer paid property, public property. The public was invited. A micro example of suppression an annilation of our freedoms. This proves McCain is a Bush clone.

  7. Plot twists for an hour and a half, and then a mind-boggling hour and a half denouement as they escape, sans dialogue, while proceeding to destroy half the German army. ,
