Not only has the city of Denver built a bare-bones facility to house any protesters who might be arrested at the Democratic Convention, it has also designated protest areas, where those who wish to protest will be forced to stand. These protest areas, are, essentially, cages, and they’re located 200 yards from where the convention delegates will be. Some free speech this is. Don’t let the Oligarchical sympathizers fool you with their neo-Puritan notion of what the First Amendment means: If the protesters cannot interact with the movers and shakers at the convention, then their free speech rights are being violated.
There is one man who could bring a stop to this in a New York minute, and he’s a guy from Chicago named Barack Obama. All he has to do is call a press conference and say, “Let these people be heard.” I’m not going to hold my breath. Barack Obama: Illegal wiretaps we can believe in.
