Free speech? Not with the "Rally Squads" around

    Our Fearless Leader and his minions fear the sound of dissent.


    Maybe after he's out of office we can heckle him all we want.

    He probably just doesn't have the time to be heckled, what with ruining the free world and all that.

    As a last resort, security should remove the demonstrators.

    I somehow doubt that it is a "last resort."

    They're just trying to tidy up democracy.

    I admire the subtlety of the rally squads not being given brown shirts. At least they can blend in.

    The Clinton method of finding out hecklers' names and having those names come up for "random" IRS audits was a lot less messy.

    I can't wait to see a source on this...

    Following Old Tony's logic, Clinton hecklers (Republicans) were audited by the IRS. But Republicans don't cheat on their taxes, do they? So if they don't cheat, why sweat the audit? But if you wear a t-shirt stating your free speech opinion, you get arrested by the Bushie Goons. Yeah, there's balance there.

    And, yeah, Old Tony, source up.

    I'm sure that W was the one to call them Rally Squads as he is still feeling the sting from being called a cheerleader during his college years.

    Gestapo and SS already were taken, sadly.
