"Free speech zone" fascism in Bush's Amerikkka (zone speech sign charge area)
"The white zone is for the loading and unloading of Scientologists
only. There is no protesting in the white zone."
From Salon, 10/16/03:
Keeping dissent invisible
How the Secret Service and the White House keep protesters safely out
of Bush's sight -- and off TV.
By Dave Lindorff
When Bill Neel learned that President George W. Bush was making a
Labor Day campaign visit to Pittsburgh last year to support local
congressional candidates, the retired Pittsburgh steelworker decided
that he would be on hand to protest the president's economic policies.
Neel and his sister made a hand-lettered sign reading "The Bushes must
love the poor -- they've made so many of us," and headed for a road
where the motorcade would pass on the way from the airport to a
Carpenters' Union training center.
Neel never got to display his sign for President Bush to see, though.
As he stood among milling groups of Bush supporters, he was approached
by a local police detective, who told him and his sister that because
they were protesting, they had to move to a "free-speech area," on
orders of the U.S. Secret Service.
"He pointed out a relatively remote baseball diamond that was enclosed
in a chain-link fence," Neel recalled in an interview with Salon.
"I could see these people behind the fence, with their faces up
against it, and their hands on the wire."
(The ACLU posted photos of the demonstrators and supporters at that
event on its Web site.)
"It looked more like a concentration camp than a free-speech area to
me, so I said, 'I'm not going in there. I thought the whole country
was a free-speech area.'"
The detective asked Neel, 66, to go to the area six or eight times,
and when he politely refused, he handcuffed and arrested the retired
steelworker on a charge of disorderly conduct.

"Free speech zone" fascism in Bush's Amerikkka (zone speech religion scientology)
He still doesn't understand the concept that this is
alt.religion.scientology., not something like alt.impeach.bush or whatever.
It get's tiresome after a while. Jack
