Actually the cop explains it very well, it just seems no one wants to hear it. He clearly stated that demonstration of any kind, such as dancing, would result in arrest.

The question is not when did dancing become illegal. The questions are, when did dancing become a form a demonstrating? When exactly did demonstrating become illegal?


This is what I was about to post. Any kind of group demonstration is not allowed on public memorials.

The reason being - it could result in damage to a priceless building.

This is NOT about freedom. It's about preservation. You wouldn't be allowed to wipe gravy off your chin with the Shroud of Turin, now would you?

If they had moved 20 feet to the side of the Lincoln Memorial they could have done anything they wanted. Public demonstrations & political activism happens all around these great monuments - just not ON them.

Don't be so over reactive that you forget logic and common sense.

That would send a clear message about how America feels about tyranny.


You know, I like coming to this website. It's entertaining, and I actually do learn things from time to time. I meet and interact with many interesting people here. People are intelligent and respectful.

Most of the time.

But every once in awhile I see a comment such as the above, and I realize why the government probably monitors ATS closely.

They should.

I am from the UK.

American spends BILLIONS of dollers they dont have, killing innocent people, in the name of "FREEDOME"

On US soil, this is illegil.

I fear for you Americans, you ARE a police state.
If this was to happen in the UK we would have taken to the streets already.
I am not advocating doing so (PLEASE I AM NOT SAYING YOU SHOULD).

How can the USA justify this?

I fear for you, I feel sorry fory you, I pity you and I pray for you.

This is so sad. so very, very sad.

Peace and Love.

Speaking of logic…

I don't think the first amendment has a clause for preservation of a monument, or clause for when and where.

Different jobs attract different people.

TSA attracts perverts.

Police tend to attract people with too much testosterone.

Hi.

The Boston Tea Party would like to speak to you, as would the fighters of the American Revolution.

My god. Someone needs to organize a senior dance there. See if those fascists will body-slam some seniors. Jefferson would be rolling over in his grave.

This is an absolute travesty. Land of the free my ass. Welcome to the death of the great experiment.

We've made these memorials into idols. The cops are there to protect the idols (which ironically symbolize "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness"--to borrow TJ's words). The idols have become meaningless. We don't even know what they stand for anymore. But we're gonna protect them, dammit!


Very well spoken. Hats off to you.

So says the punk who has already relinquished all right to be called an American. "...Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countryman.”—Samuel Adams

i dont see anything wrong with what he said

didnt threaten anyone directly, and didnt say he would punish an innocent

Funny . . . okay, not really. Sad and pathetic actually.

Our founding fathers would be terrorists in today's world . . . and a majority of people in this country would be cheering to see them punished.

The cop goes "stop resisting"... where was the guy resisting?

I would love to go to DC and start line dancing to boot scootin boogie.

I find it amazing that this "Adam' guy says the exact same stuff that Alex Jones fights for- yet AJ is massacred on this site on a daily basis but this guy dances a little and gets 42 flags?

Wow. This abuse of liberty may very well start an annual trend of GIANT dance parties at national monuments across the country. Oh, and I'm not trying to recruit anyone. My "off topic" comment was hypothetical. (sorry)
