    They broke the law. They trespassed on private property.

    Randall Terry had children dress up in garbage bags so he could chase them while wearing an Obama mask.

    Former Republican presidential hopeful Alan Keyes, a Roman Catholic priest and 19 others were arrested Friday
    These people trespassed and caused damage?

    Trespassing is definitely wrong, but I find it interesting that it wasn't important enough for you to mention in your earlier post. Still sounds to me like you only approve of free speech on subjects with which you agree. Otherwise, they must be "respectful" and not have any shocking props.

    Throwing blood would be a little over the top, I agree. But a good loud protest and in-your-face politicking is something the right mustn't refrain from if they want to have any chance of winning back the bully pulpit.

    McCain represented the ultimate in 'nice guy' politics. And look where that got him. He was soundly defeated by a weak democrat because he didn't have the guts to make the hard punches. And there were many that could and should have been used against Obama.

    So I'm all for protesting against our current president. And our current speaker. And most of the policies and positions they represent.

    I almost missed the fact that this was my favorite republican, Alan Keyes. Good to see him still around and fired up.

    They shouldn't do it at a graduation for others though IMO. That is about as tasteless as protesting a funeral.

    Yes, it is their right to protest, and it is also my right to call that protest tasteless.

    If anything it hurts the GOP movement by doing this.

    As a Catholic who personally does not believe in abortion

    As a Catholic who personally does not believe in abortion (except if the mother's life is in danger) I find it an embaaasment that these self righteous Catholics are making believe that they speak for all CATHOLICS. I also find it offensive that non CATHOLOCS showed up at an essentially CATHOLIC school and are running their mouths. Yes they have the right to be wrong and stupid since the Constitution guarantees them that.

    Why?

    Because a handful of your fellow Catholics are exercising their inalienable rights?

    Because a handful of your fellow Catholics are choosing to peaceably assemble to voice opposition to Dear Leader?

    Because a handful of your fellow Catholics are rendering to God their faith and their devotion, and are rendering to Dear Leader (a most unseeming and pathetic Caesar) their scorn and their disdain?

    Yeah, I can see why you'd be embarrassed--you're not out there with them.

    It's shameful because they are protesting at the graduation where people have worked their asses off for their degrees.

    It's shamful, because people feel they have to protest rather than let students have their day of celebration where a standing president speaks.

    It's shameful because these SELFISH protesters would rather protest than celebrate the graduates.

    Noone is saying that these guys don't HAVE the right to protest, people are saying they should have CHOSEN NOT to protest on someone else's day.
