    WASHINGTON


    Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a fallen soldier in Iraq who reinvigorated the anti-war movement, was taken into custody by police in the House gallery Tuesday night just before President Bush's State of the Union address.

    Police escorted Sheehan from the visitors' gallery above the House chamber after causing a disruption, said a Capitol Police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the incident were sketchy.

    Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., had invited Sheehan to the address as her guest.
    She didn't even do anything, and was invited as a guest, and got arrested? Wtf kind of fascist bullshit is that?

    Sieg Heil, Chimpenfhrer.

    What constitutes a disruption? Being there and breathing?

    Yup. Being a political opponent, not even a disruptive one, means you can get arrested now.

    Dissent is not tolerated in any form. Welcome to fascism.

    Ummmmm ..... you're wrong Grimms ........ she brought a flag (of what I am not sure) to wave in protest. This is against House rules. She knew it going in, but was determined to make an ass of herself.

    Your article even said she was "causing a disruption".

    yeah, according to the patriot act merely being at a political event and posessing different views criminalizes you as a 'disruptor'

    Go read it.

    I don't need to read it.

    They had a reporter come on directly before the President who stated that she came into the house with a rolled-up flag of some kind ..... started unrolling it once she reached her seat ..... and planned on waving it during the speech. She was wrong. She broke the rules and she was wrong.

    maybe she was just going to unfurl it and let it sit there

    and yes, i would suggest reading the provisions of the patriot act, its your country and they apply to you.

    Was it the stars & stripes, or a banner saying "You murdered my son you lying bastard". Could make a difference.

    and is it the waving of the flag that might have distracted the chimp from his locked gaze on the teleprompter, making him fumble more than usual?

    News update:


    She was wearing an anti-war t-shirt under her coat ......... she came to protest.

    Protest is forbidden in the house. Period. It's the rules, whether it's a Democratic President or a Republican one.

    Whether you agree with President Bush or not, just follow the fuckin' rules for one GDamn hour. Jiminyfuckinchristmas!!

    Ah, the clothing as a dangerous weapon example of dissent. So much for the flag rumour.

    she wore a fucking t-shirt? Wow, that's about as dangerous as having a political dissent bumper sticker on your car, and not being able to get into the political event in the first place cuz the SS keep you out.

    Like i said.. fascism.

    She broke the rules and she was wrong.
    Bush and company will keep tightening the rules until anybody who
    disagrees with them at all is wrong.

    Mr. "There ought to be limits on freedom" is certainly living up to his
    subliminal fantasies of dictatorhood.

    Bush is making a big mistake, and should've followed Churchill's example --
    Winnie never had his detractors in Britain arrested for peaceful protest.
    To the best of my knowledge his main detractors, who publicly opposed
    Churchill's saturation bombing of civilian cities (he did as much as the
    Germans did), were Bishop Bell and a Quaker couple named the Catchpools.

    The British press, of course, criticized them as unpatriotic and clamoured
    for them to be punished, but Churchill was too thick-skinned for that.
    Bush is following in Castro's footsteps.

    I would be proud to wear an anti-war T-shirt any time, anywhere. As long as it wasn't profane, I don't see the problem wearing it in the House.

    I bet if she wore one that praised Bush and his damn war, she'd still be sitting there.
