Yup. People who pose no real threat to the police are abused everyday. Yet openly armed individuals be they just some guy passing by, a bitter individual at a town hall meeting or wholly angry Black Panthers walking down the street with rifles and shotguns in hand in full para-military dress never seem to get abused. Go figure.

Star for humor, genius, and all around sticking it to the man.

the police will tazer people for carrying a baseball bat for god's sakes...check out a few dozen you tube even see totally unarmed people being gang tackled and beat by police for merely walking on an piece of sidewalk outside of a building that is owned privately, and not owned by the city.

You argued against your own point, by giving a perfect example of why cowering before a tyrant is never a good thing.

There would be a reason for that... those protesters, were actually being aggressive, starting in on the cops and behaving like wild animals...

These men made a simple statement and behaved calmly...

and that's the difference in gaining respect...

One says we are moronic and react purely on emotion...

The other says we are straight serious and we will respond with force IF we have to...

On thing is a Riot, the other is Firm Declaration made in a Civil and lawful manner.

Use fire hoses set to a level that will peel the bark off trees and beat the living primate manure out of them with clubs, maybe even shoot four of them in Ohio. Give 'em a taste of there own YWHW-damn medicine.

The man with the Rifle was black, there was no common Religious affiliation among these people other than the normal demographic of the area, no one had anything to say about god

and all I hear here is yet another Obama supporter talking about killing and harming people.

Except it wont happen because the people your talking about harming are well armed, organized, not prone to rash behavior and if need be will have a plan other than running down the street like a bunch of retards turning over trash cans and breaking windows...

If most of these protesters had their way the last eight years, the "federal" government would be able to swipe them off the streets and deny them the Writ of Habeas Corpus before they could even exercise the Constitutional rights (like the 2nd amendment or protesting, let alone both at the same time which probably isn't a right) they didn't give a crap about until they became sore losers. You lost fair and square (unlike the stolen elections in 2000 and 2004 you didn't win either). I don't care to hear libel about squirrel food either. Get over it!!!

What makes you think they are Republicans other than your own Blatant and Obvious Racism and Bias? lack of knowledge of the people and ignorance?

The entire Northern State vote here went to Obama... AZ did run Mc Cain but by a very small margin, Phx is a big city with 2 Million Mexicans...

Which over all is a Family values location but not nearly as socially conservative as one would think...

I encountered 1/5th the racism to minorities in genuine manner, speech or behavior as I did on the East Coast

If you want an honest protest/revolution that is fine, but if you want to play partisan politics, count me out of your Fourth Reich Revolution.

And if they start using their guns in self-defense you withdraw the police and drop bombs from 35,000 feet and don't count bodies.

Thank You for showing the true face of most Obamatons... Racist and Hateful hiding behind words and wanting kill innocent people or enslave them in some sickening inability to see today and forget the past

Fourth Reich?

I live in a town of 60,000 people, there is almost NO real crime, I sleep with my door open at night, the biggest employer is probably the Forest service, Our Power is going to be full wind soon, it's clean, every one is friendly, the population is in check, the ENTIRE place is eco friendly and beautiful... I never see Racism when I go out at night, most peoples bug thing is Music and Nature... Black, White it doesn't matter... people are content, no one is angry, the cops never bother me... there are no Cameras, Family is the most important thing in most peoples lives...

and yeah, despite being a bunch of eco hippies the whole place is loaded with guns...

We are the 4th Reich? No one here has an agenda for the rest of the nation aside from maybe picking up your trash and saying please and thank you when you come to visit...

Who's the facist?

Some Guy... straight from the GHETTO, where people can't be trusted with a gun because they drive down the block holding it sideways as if they know what they are doing and accidentally shoot some Baby with no Dad while trying to kill a Drug Dealer...

The ghetto community activist want's to tell us we have to pay for that neighborhoods health care? Chicago... Crack attack? Malt Liquor and drive bys?

Inject us with Vaccines? Why do I ride the subway? will me..outdoors all day living good need that poison? Am I in a dense population? some tenement building? Did I choose that life? Who's going to pass me the Flu a Bear? Will I even get sick this Winter...

Take our guns? Why? Who the heck got shot here? When was our last riot... What Gangs? there are no gangs....

We are Facists? Here? in Small town America...

I'm from Brooklyn... I left because people act like crap and live like crap...

Is anyone from here with some AGENDA for the nation?

What do these people do... go to Church, Kayak work lead a simple life...

They aren't some Fourth Reich... I have no real religion by practice, but they never bother me about it either...

What's our crime? That requires BOMBS from 35,000 feet lol? Being willing to stand up to vicious violent animals who want to basically rob us, take what we have, inflect policies on us that we don't need or deserve...

What Bombs...we have some army here? this is Washington? also in an inner city GHETTO

Who hates anyone here? Why because people here Left he EC behind, aren't SLAVES to the rat race don't work Federal jobs and live off the system in cramped apartments?

What's the crime we have committed? That our money should be taken and used by Washington to fight wars and inflict a MISERABLE slave driven life on people here and world wide...

BOMBS FROM 35,000 ft?

You know what... YOUR THE ANIMALS, I have NO religion to speak of...

But you know what... I live a free good life, i'm healthy, strong educated... peaceful and I like these people, they are DECENT, they aren't out for MONEY or SEX or POWER... they have no desire to bother anyone...

and Sick, Racist MISERABLE people on the EC and parts of CALI want to TELL the REST of America how to live,...

Have abortions..., worship money, don't have children, live a SELF indulgent life...

But it's YOU packed into tiny apartments, SLAVES to the DOLLAR cramped, overworked, tired MISERABLE... Who are responsible for corporate America...Responsible for the need for Socialism, suffering from disease from a crap life...

and why? Money Power SEX?

call yourself LIBERAL?

The hippies were liberal, they live here now...the ones that were true...

It's the "so called liberal" baby killing... pill popping, system junkies that have the horrible lives... Growing old alone dying of Cancer

Not us

YOU want to "BOMB US FROM 35,000" feet?

Why you watch MTV you think you have it good... story of the world...the have not's always want to kill the haves, ruin it for those who....did nothing wrong, bothered nobody... the demographic isn't Republican here and that doesn't even matter it's meaningless...


Big words from a tough kid ... Bomb Us from 35,000 ft...

You'll end up alone in the woods dying from exposure, frightened, your own urine frozen to your leg, hungry, wondering why you ever tried and what you were so pissed about in the first place... and for the first time in your life as your eyes glaze over, you'll be the one asking for Yahweh

NO ONE Across the bulk of this nation is coming for you or has any desire too... but you sure have allot you want from the rest of us packed in your cages like animals...

The fact that some are saying how unintelligent the guy was.

reply to post by Helghast1

Yeah... absolutely...

and you know why?

Because when you mix people together in a normal environment where they aren't segregated into little ethnic zones and become and stereotypes it turns out we really are all the same and people develop the same values...

The people (particularly white people) but of all shades who live in Urbania (and I was one of them) call themselves liberal but don't even realize they never evolved since HS most of the time and even when "supporting" other groups have no idea how Racist they really are and that they aren't supporting Gays and Blacks but actually support STEREO TYPES of Gays and Blacks...

That if they were really neighbors living a more mundane life they'd share the same values, the same speech and the same culture...

But they wouldn't know that

Because in NY, Chicago and LA

Backs live in spot x and speak a certain way and listen to a certain music and Whites live in Spot Y and live their little White lies and Gays Live in the arty fashion district and talk funny and act flamboyant...

And really it's pathetic and they run the media from these places and every show and news broadcast is an equal pathetic stereo type...

and that includes painting rural Americans as bigoted, stupid red necks...

When the reality is, being a stereotype when your 50 is lack of culture if you ask me...

Hard to comprehend for some that...

The protester with the biggest gun who doesn't want to take his Federally appointed medicine was a Black Man from AZ lol...supporting his peeps, not Obama just because of the color of his skin...

Big expression in Urbania

"Keep it Real"

It of course derives from... a lack of something your in your environment and desire for it...

Just curious as to why the super approach to those exercising their second amendment over Obamas' decisions? I am new to ATS and want to know if such things happened during GW administration years? I mean he did pass the Patriot Act right? I guess my question here is that, it doesn't matter Liberal or Conservative we should all care about our rights as Americans and why we did'nt exercise these rights when the patriot act was passed? How much of what's going on is racially charged?

I lived in the city JD,
and I experienced racism and sexism on my behalf and others from the moment I got there till the moment I left. If you grew up there, it may not be apparent to you. But as someone from the east coast, it was pretty blatant. I actually had to point it out to people that they were being discriminated against. But I also couldnt' rally anyone, they were all afraid of getting blacklisted.

Why do you think everyone from the east coast flees after awhile?

I mean no offense. There are wonderful qualities. If your an outdoor person that is definitly the place to live(heat aside). We miss our outings and off roading there. And the spring is incredible.

I think you made a lot of good points except the suggestion that those outside the US not voice their insistence that they disagree with an (almost) unrestricted right to bear arms. If they strongly object and believe the right to bear arms is a bad idea, I think its good that they stand up and say so. There is nothing wrong with a variety of opinions. In fact I think that is a good thing.

If they have an idea about how we should be running our country I think they should be very welcome to chime in about how we run it. The internet is a great way to spread new ideas from country to country. Whether or not other people in other countries have bad ideas, I think we can trust individuals to look at both sides of all arguments to make an informed choice.

Nobody pointing out the MULTIPLE possibility of assassinating Obama???

OK, I'll say it - you all must want it to happen.

I mean in a place where JFK can spark debates lasting WEEKS - and still nobody even MENTIONS the possibility - come on people, open your eyes, sheeple. These guys wouldn't be allowed in Congress or the Whitehouse (if they got an invite) with their guns, so they shouldn't be around anywhere where ANY President will be speaking with them either. At all. Protecting your constitution is by proxy protecting the voters choice and eliminating some racist threat to oust your leader - and NOBODY seems to be doing it!!!!!

If it's "normal" (NOW) to bring guns into an auditorium where a black President is hoisted in clear view, then when (hopefully not, but WHEN, I fear) it happens, people will say "Oh, well, they shouldn't have let them folks in with guns..."

It will be about that point when all the Obama haters will switch to
"they wanted him dead for the good he would have made".

WAKE UP!!! Jeez!!

LOL race-this race-that.

These brainwashed drones seeking to seize our rights by blanatently dishonest defamation should be mocked.

You would think someone in the UK would be more worried about their rapid national degradation that the Left's "multi-culti" policy has wrought.

A 50 caliber rifle can pop a guy from 2 miles away. It can shoot through wood, stucco, brick, concrete, body armor, and bullet proof glass as if it were barely even there. Should the entire city be searched for guns and disarmed so that President Snatch-N-Grab can give his stupid little speech?

"Free Speech Zones" taught some of us a lesson. They'd start out saying, "there's a time and a place, just not here at the rally!" And the next thing you know, everyone with a gun is prohibited from leaving the opposite side of town.

If the Secret Service didn't have a problem with it, why do any of you?

Turns out that black guy with the assault rifle was a prop for a conservative talk radio show that was broadcasting there.

On Monday, a dozen people packing heat -- including at least one man carrying a semi-automatic assault rifle -- were spotted at a pro-health care rally next to the convention where President Obama was speaking. While it appeared at the time to be a random incident, similar to several other gun sightings at health care events, it's become clear today that this time the gun show was at least partially planned.

The man with the semi-automatic (referred to in interviews as "Chris," no last name) was spotted at the protest by CNN news cameras, in the middle of a Q&A. Today, his interviewer -- Ernest Hancock of conservative talk radio show Declare Your Independence With Ernest Hancock -- went on CNN and explained to host Rick Sanchez that he and Chris were actually in the middle of a radio broadcast. Hancock, also packing heat at the rally, had invited Chris to come down the protest with his rifle to be interviewed. The two men had known each other for two years, through their work for presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).

During the segment on CNN, Rick Sanchez said, "the more we look into this, the more it appears that it was really planned." Hancock concurred: "Oh, it's more planned than you think." In addition to scheduling the interview, Hancock had also informed the local police force.

Your blind support of the man is sickening. All you do is cruise around ATS and bash anyone who dares to speak out against The Great One.

Like I said earlier on this thread all it takes is one unstable mind to get all worked up and excited to start shooting...

but then you will hear the right doing their level best to distance themselves from the act and claim it has nothing to do with 2nd amendment rights when they are the ones urging people to show up like that talk radio show host did with their weapons to make a statement.

This thread is about a weird appearance of a person armed with an assault rifle at an Obama event, and to the best of my recollection Grover focused on that aspect, rather than on Obama's policies. I don't see your point.
