    No, it wasn't. It also wasn't a flash mob either. But what I find odd, is what was so objectionable about people dancing? There didn't seem to be a back log getting in to the memorial.

    The police don't tolerate people getting confrontational like this. This attitude towards the police gets you locked up anywhere really. But not being able to dance there is kind of... a dumb rule that started all of this.

    They were protesting the U.S. Court of Appeals ruling that occurred earlier this month.
    It was a protest.
    Protestors are antagonistic.
    They were LOOKING to cause trouble. If the police ignored them they would have just bumped it up a notch.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    LOL. Europe has some of the most ridiculous infringements on freedom of expression.

    Well, mark the day SE102. We are in agreement. The individuals didn't look like they were harming anyone there to see the monument. I think that Jefferson may have approved of their disobedience.

    Freedom of expression. Also by their actions they were saying that making this law, and restricting peoples rights with laws that break with the constitution. is not ok. That is what freedom of expression is all about.

    Wait, are you making generalized statements about protests, or just about these? It seems like a bit of line blurring is going on to me...
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
