Obama’s Thug State Begins In Alaska

Posted August 30th, 2010 by Iron Mike

I think this guy has a hell of a lawsuit.  Powerful video evidence of private security and police over-reaction to a classic 1st Amendment case of free speech at the Alaska State Fair.  While I don’t sympathize much with the LaRouche bunch [they’re your basic garden-variety American Communist Party], they do have a right to speak and to peacefully assemble and protest.  Watch the video and see if you think this was good police work – or really dumb police work.  Oh, and remember that elsewhere they’re still “counting absentee ballots” in the Alaska Senate Republican primary, as rumors fly of “missing ballots”. 

 

OK, so he was loud.  But he wasn’t using anything beyond his own voice. 

Everything he was doing was in public space, and although his banner was big, it wasn’t blocking or endangering pedestrian traffic.  I’d say his 1st Amendment rights were wrestled to the ground and handcuffed – probably by union security goons and unionized police officers.  Somebody from Alaska tell me I’m wrong – please.

And if this guy is a trained LaRouche operative, he’s just gotten them exactly the publicity they wanted.
