The right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances is apparently a right only allowed if you are a Leftist.
Breaking on Breitbart, TEA Party protesters were being blocked by Capitol Hill Police from attending Immigration rally on the other side of the Capitol. Apparently, protesting tyranny is a right we little people no longer possess unless it’s ‘granted’ by the State. And then, they have the right to tell us how, where and when we can “protest”.
Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday’s “Audit the IRS” rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that “your people” can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event.
…”The Capitol police are violating our rights to assembly and association,” Mooneyhan told Breitbart News. “How does our permit limit the rights of individuals to attend public events. It’s intimidation.”
Mooneyhan added, “How do they even know these are ‘our people?’ Did they look them up through PRISM?” PRISM is the controversial NSA program that reportedly tracks internet and email communication.
