Of course, McCain didn't understand this in Vietnam, so what reason do we have to think that he'll get it now?

In other news, the mere act of planning a peaceful protest is now terrorism. And good for up to 7 years in jail.

Enjoying your police state? I sure hope so. You sure voted for it...

I thought it was telling that the whole floor erupted into chants of "U S A! U S A!" every time a protester unveiled a banner.

Nice to see the shoe on the other foot. I had the precise opposite experience at a MegaDeth concert in November 2k4. Every time someone mentioned the war or Bush's impending election, the "USA USA" chant broke out.

That experience more than any other made me decide America was not worth saving.

It's only terrorism if you protest "Republicans".
At the DNC, they were still called protesters.

Definitely watch the videos of the police brutality, it's quite shocking. If they could have, they probably would have shot people. The fact that they forcibly (by pepper spraying and beating people into submission) rounded up 400 people (protesters, journlists and anyone who got caught walking by) into a parking lot, then arresting everyone, is AMAZING! It reminded me of the videos we saw in the 80's of police responses to student protests in Russia and China. Without the death, thankfully, but still eerily similar.
