Both Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans were in that protest, they are co-founders of Code Pink. They have also had their picture taken with Hugo Chavez.


What's your point? They are liberal extremists who hang out with evil dictators....

They are clearly insane.

Of course though insane people have the right to protest too, like they were doing in the first video. But she was acting crazy in that second one.

It would seem to me that there were more people there than cops, wonder what would happen if they all woke up at the same time?

If this was China you guys probably wouldn't see this Dude for 20 years. Why doesn't he go protest human rights and the incarceration of political prisoners over there? IMO...that a lot more important than the right to dance at a at a U.S. memorial. Awww right....I forgot, they don't allow you to video such things over there much less post them on YouTube. Stupid me...ain't gonna get much publicity out of that now is he?

What I didn't understand was, how can they say they will arrest one person for continuing to film, saying it's illegal to film inside of the memorial while hundreds of people go in there filming and snapping pictures.

Are they making laws up on the spot now?

I predict that within the year they will pass something else stating that dancing and protesting inside of the memorials is an act of domestic terrorism.

It is a memorial, not a dance hall. Arrest a guy for taking pictures then you may have a case. It is also public property. So they can tell you things like no skateboarding, smoking, drinking, etc.

I find the dancers embarassing. Millions of people all over the world come to visit DC, and a couple of drunk rednecks start dancing and making a scene.

They also have the freedom to stop what they are doing and not embarrass the rest of us.

Wow things are getting insane. What exactly were they protesting anyways? just everything? I notice the code pink lady.

She's also in this video.



LOLOLOL this lady is clearly insane.


btw the cops in the first video should be body slammed too.......

last i checked:
dancing= not against the law
body slamming= against the law (battery)

They've got guts, that's for sure. What stood out to me in the video was the smile on Rumsfeld's face, and his wife too. They don't seem to have a care in the world.

Yes and if people continue to accept the loss of their constitutional rights, then there will be more and more. You give an inch they take a mile. Soon they will make it mandatory at the airport to go through the scanner AND pat downs or you don't fly. They will stop giving choices and just tell you what you are going to do. As is, it's already this way. You can't enter the security area and change your mind and leave without getting pat down anyway.

It's very worrisome to me to see people be nonchalant about this, because it's just dancing, because we shouldn't dance in a memorial anyway. But wait until a law is made that hits close to home for others, then they will see. It's already becoming too late. If you are to endure laws made up on the spot, ie: suddenly get arrested for filming in the memorial, when it's not illegal, then really what can you do?

This is kind of like the saying where "they came for the jews, I said nothing because i'm not a jew"

They came for the dancing hippies, I said nothing cause I'm not a dancing hippie.

Whatever Dude.

What part of - - - there is a Law against dancing at this memorial do you not understand?



It's a stupid law that needs to be challenged, like so many others.
Second.

All it takes is one person, or group to ruin it for us all.

I agree with the right to challenge laws that seem stupid.

If you choose an illegal way to protest it - - then don't cry foul.

Dancing is dangerous, and can spread quickly, get completely out of control.

Please watch in this video as everyone gets involved in this terrorist's dance:



Dangerous stuff here, I'm surprised they didn't call in a drone attack on this out of control crowd of terrorists.



OMG....You make my day dear friend

That was realy funny indeed....lol...that's one of the moust bigger's terrorist atacks i ever seen

Maybe is the music...something "Hidden" in it, that transforms regular normal persons in horrific terrorists just in seconds! It must be a Al-Kaeda secret wepon or something....

That's a great vid. But come on, that's not even relevant.

I still had to save it though.

I wonder if praying out loud in the Jefferson Memorial is allowed? Isn't preying another form of self expression like dancing?

Should religious expression be allowed? Perhaps just Christian prayers. No Jewish or Buddhist chanting allowed. Would the cops body slam someone if they didn't stop praying.

I'll bet all the hypocrites

here would cry foul if the cops mistreated someone for preying but applaud the cops for abusing taxpayers for dancing. See the disconnect here? Only state approved freedom of expression allowed.

I'm not seeing your point. Praying aloud...and a group of people dancing around is the same thing? I don't care what religion you practice, pray in front of me, I'm more than OK with that.

Well I personally would take offense at someone praying a non state approved prayer and they should be body slammed and arrested if they didn't follow my orders. See the hypocrisy? [sarcasm]

It's a subjective call isn't it. Preferential treatment for some and others arrested and abused for a different act of self expression.

I'll bet that singing God Bless America in the Jefferson Memorial is approved self expression but chanting Hare Krishna or a Jewish Canticle would get you arrested. Hypocrisy pure and simple.

I'm not surprised that those with myopic constipated cultural views can't see the HYPOCRISY.

America...Land of the Free....but only for state sanctioned freedoms, thank you very much.

I see your point. But where do you draw the line between self expression and causing a disturbance?

Edit: Can't comment on other religions practicing there. It would be pure speculation.

So you agree that Rosa Parks should have sat in the back of the bus, kept her mouth shut, and write letters to elected officials?

You may not like it, but it is public property, and the government can't stop peaceful assembly on public property or any other rights.
