Under The Radar: Disagreeing With Dick Cheney Publically Gets Man Colorado Arrested For Assault


Glenn Greenwald on his blog Unclaimed Territory today has a great piece on former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan's paeon piece waxing poetic on the topic of (are you ready?) liberals' exceeding intolerance, incivility & inability to be reasonable about dissent.

Can you say "projection"?

Glenn considers the absurdity of the pot calling the kettle black yet again (methinks it's actually a tried-&-so-far-true GOP campaign strategy), & gives several famous instances where just the reverse has been true.

One of them flew under my radar, & maybe it got past you too. So in the interest of public service, Demon Princess would like to bring this article from a Colorado paper to all a y'all's attention. (Title bar.)

Seems a Denver man happened to be walking with his son when he noticed a huge commotion nearby. Lo, it was the Dick Cheney in town to speak to the good people of that state. The man, walking by Cheney, said in passing, " I find your policies reprehensible."

For that temerity, he was arrested--for assault!

The article also details the case of a man in another state arrested for carrying a protest sign when Cheney was speaking.

I've said this before, but I'll repeat it as often as indicated: folks, do we still live in America?
