Dissing dissent

Being ever so thin-skinned and knowingly guilty of so many injustices, the Bush administration has created what we now call "free speech zones." As much contempt as I felt for President Bill Clinton, I have to say, at least he was man enough to allow protestors to vent on his watch - wherever they were. These clowns are too chickenshiZit and intellectually deficient to allow a right granted to us under the constitution - the right to peacefully protest. The voice of the American people has effectively been muzzled. Our founding fathers are probably rolling in their graves right now. This is NOT the America they fought so valiantly for!

Incidentally, over in Iraq, our newest state - the authorities have shut down Al-Jezeera. Things are spiralling out of control and this administration cannot allow those images to get out. More heavy-handed BS. The funny thing is, these fools just don't understand that the truth WILL come out eventually. There is nothing in the world they can do to stop it. And when it does, they will pay. They will pay with their flesh and with their very souls. Hell's gonna be one crowded place when they get there.

This is an article on what is happening around the nation with regard to those who DARE voice dissent:

The Bu#es are using federal, state and local police to conduct an undeclared war against dissent, literally incarcerating Americans who publicly express their disagreements with him and his policies. The ACLU and others have now sued Bush's Secret Service for its ongoing pattern of repressing legitimate, made-in-America protest, citing cases in Arizona, California, Virginia, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, Texas--and coming soon to a theater near you!

Al-Jazeera's been shut down in Iraq because all hell's breaking loose and they'll cover it blood, guts & all. Let's see how it's covered here on our our neutered news networks.

Bloodbath as all-out war erupts


HUNDREDS have been killed in the latest round of brutal fighting that threatens to plunge Iraq back into all-out war.

Coalition forces battled militias loyal to firebrand cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, with up to 400 militants killed in one city alone.
The uprising in the holy city of Najaf, south of Baghdad, resulted in the highest single-day death toll among anti-coalition fighters since the end of the war to oust Saddam Hussein last year. 3022%255E663,00.html

What was that Dubya said? We went to free Iraqis from Saddam's tyrannical rule? Now Dubya's goombahs are not letting the Iraqi voice be heard b/c it's inciting violence? RIGHT. What a load of horshiZit! Those people have NO freedom. Well, except the freedom to lick emperor George's crusty a$$.

So, has the Bush Administration also started cracking down here at ATS? This is exactly the kind of information that needs to be discussed here, if Deny Ignorance is to be taken seriously.

Out of respect for a certain moderator, I will say I should not have used a particular expression. I referred to our fearless leeeDar, Mr. Bush, in a not so very kind way. Not kind to folks who are, shall we say, mentally disabled. My apologies to the handicapped.

Thank you for unlocking this thread. Locking it only proved the essence of what I presented, as the above poster pointed out. Glad to see ATS hasn't succombed to those tactics.

Things are falling apart. We are loosing our democracy and if this country turns into a police state I don't how many poeople will protest but I do know alot of people are not happy with the Bush Administration. The Patriot Act has taken away some of the amendments of the constitution already. If people don't care that's there right but they may not like the end result IMO.

The dissing of dissent should be a wake up call to every freedom-loving American! We should be protesting en mass this free-speech zone BU#! It goes against everything this country has always stood for!

It proves Bush is scared to death of opposition. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Even president Nixon went out and spoke directly to those who protested him. He was at least TRYING to dialogue WITH them. That's a real man, with his own ideas and who was not afraid.
