As you would expect, when the Dems try to celebrate democracy, the anti-American repgunants come in an ruin things. Hell, what else are they good for?

Political Rally Ends in Shoving Match
Des Moines)-- A Democratic rally at the Drake University Olmstead Center urged young Iowans to get out and vote. The rally -- in support of Howard Dean-- was targeted toward high school and college students, a group known for not turning out to vote. The rally featured comedian Janene Garafalo and classic rock star Joan Jett, but was interrupted by a surprise visit from some unwanted guests.

A group of college Republicans at their Midwest caucus leadership conference -- being held in the same building -- heard about the Democratic event, and crashed the rally.

"There are seven of us who worked really hard at putting this conference together," said Jason Cole of the college Republicans. "So we met, discussed, and majority ruled. We went down there."

What they didn't discuss is what to do if things get out of hand. One of the Bush supporters shoved Jett and and the singer pushed back in anger.

Cole said that was the decision of one person, and not at all representative of what the conference was trying to do.

Campus security did show up to break things up and the concert resumed as planned. In fact, Jett wrapped up her day with two more performances, one in Fort Dodge and the other in Marshalltown."

Are these people really American?

As a university student (not the one from the article), I can say that the College Republicans chapter here is similarly nasty. For example, they charge dues for membership, despite the fact that campus rules prohibit them from doing so. They justify it by saying "well, you don't HAVE to pay dues," with the unspoken message that you're not welcome if you don't. A member of the Young Democrats recently e-mailed the president of the College Republicans, and was told "Anyone's welcome at our meetings! Come next time!" So, we did (she and I). They had a speaker that night, a Republican representative in the statehouse, who was a complete nutjob. When we started asking questions, the president figured out who we were pretty quick, and went into instant O'Reilly/Limbaugh mode. We couldn't get three words out without getting yelled at. Looking back, I suppose we should have expected that. It would have been funny if it weren't so typical.

I can't stand College Republicans here, and judging from this article, it seems that they're no different elsewhere.

The college republicans appear to be the breeding gound for evil and malice.

Look, the issue with a lot of republicans is that they seem to think that they can keep things the same as they have been (although historically they are always wrong).

They are scared of change and fight desprately to keep a hold on what they have now. When they feel threatened, they get angry (as do all people who feel their personal security bubble being invaded).

They are scared and troubled. This accounts for almost all of the KKK actions, violence due to abortion or homosexuality.

Must suck being scared of change all the time, or even to think that things can always stay the same.

They want things to stay the same so bad, that they defy logic and do some really stupid things that they would not normally do if they were no proponants of the pack mentality.

Anyway, I hate college people thinking they know so much, that they can join a political party.

So at what point is it OK for people to join a political party? When they're middle-aged, and have been voiceless in society for half of their life?

No thanks. I (as a college student) am PROUD to be a member of the campus Young Democrats, as well as the county, state, and national Democratic Party. And in case you were wondering, yes, I DO participate locally (just had a meeting for the county party last night), and I DO know more about politics, current affairs, and the issues than the VAST majority of middle-aged people, businesspeople, and other "professionals" in the community.

Well that's fantasitc, although I can't agree with the party are with.

But you aren't the ones I'm talking about. There are a vast majority of people who either don't care, or have an opinion while they know almost nothing of the topic.

Can't stand them.

Then there is the people I normally associate with republicans, but there are a healthy amount of Dems who do the same thing.

They vote according to their party rather than being an independant thinker, using judgement, and looking issue to issue.

I misspoke, so now I hope you know what I mean. I'm not that far out of college myself. But I stayed away from college political parties.

I find that they are filled with immovable idealogical folks who will not give you an inch even when presented with hard facts in contrast to their opinions.

Fools

It's funny that you feel Republicans are "anti-American."

How do you view the liberals in the Democratic party who stand side-by-side with communist groups at anti-War, ERRR, anti-Bush demonstrations? How about the liberals in the Democratic party who, along with the Ford Foundation, are trying to keep the Mexican border even more porus so that border crossing can be done freely? How about those Democrats who felt that Clinton's flimsy retaliation against Osama bin Laden was for the '93 WTC "good enough?"

I see a party of people who still believe in the morals in which this country was founded. As that slips away, so does America's chance of a future.

Remember the Greek?

It amuses me that you can call what those Republican students did "Anti-American". I'm curious???? How did you feel about the harrassment that those same college Republicans got when they wanted to exercise their right to demonstrate against Afirmative Action with a bake sale. In fact the Liberal Left Wing Administrations of many of their colleges halted their Legal demonstrations. I guess you would call that a double standard, wouldn't you???????????????

No, I felt that was just, racist. The repugnants as usual were promoting a crafty and devisive (anti-American) LIE through a bake sale (which they earn money from) which was an insult to minorities and women.

The dems at the democratic rally were advocating that young people (of all colors) should vote, a fundamentally American concept. So, why would the brown shirt repugnants disrupt it?

I beg to differ!! What those young Republicans were doing was exercising their constitutional right to free speech with the use of an innocent bake sale. Do you only believe in the right to free speech when it effects Dems/Libs?????

Not to mention...I am of the opinion that any form of discrimination is just that..."Discrimination" Not only when it effects Dems, Libs, Communists, Blacks, women, etc. I am sure you are one of those people that believes that white (NON Liberal) men can't be descriminated against!!! BIG surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There was absolutely NOTHING innocent about that bake sale. And you may talk about freedom of speech but you know nothing about it. The school was not a government school so the First Amendment doesn't apply. You're on school property, you go by school rules.

The last I knew... If the school was in these great United States... and the folks who were demonstrating were doing so peacefully, which they were, then they were entitled to ALL the protections and rights guaranteed them by the CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS. It is truely a pity that "YOU" know not what you speak of!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, its obvious that you don't know too much b/c if its private property, then the Bill of Rights doesn't apply. How 'bout if I come to your house and preach the goodness of democrats?

Hate speech is not protected and to create an inflamatory situation bvased upon someone's race or gender is what I consider hate speech.

I see that if the facts don't suit your argument than you try to change them. Must be nice to live in your world. Here in the United States everyone is guaranteed freedom of speech. It doesn't vary by Location barrister!

Those students were not preaching hate, your starting to sound like Howard Dean..You should change your mood to Angry. Those students were merely pointing out the inequity in Affirmative Action. Your blinded by your lack of knowledge.
