Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book.

Silencing of dissent...

Here is the story from :

Washington D.C.-- Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) president Andrea Lafferty was targeted and detained by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security personnel this Wednesday during the closing event capping the three day closed-door conference advancing the implementation of U.N. Resolution 16/18.

“For weeks we have been asking whether the true aims of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and U.N. Resolution 16/18 would be used to apply “old fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” to chill and coerce those critical of the Islamist agenda,” said Lafferty.

Hillary Clinton was as good as her word,” said Lafferty.

Lafferty was circled by several members of Secretary Clinton’s staff before being approached by a member of the security detail, demanding Lafferty follow him. When asked why she was being removed from the reception hall, the security detail announced that a phone call had identified Lafferty as a “security threat” to Secretary Clinton.

“I was shocked and angry at the pressure and shameful intimidation tactics our State Department put on, even to the point of identifying me as a threat to Hillary Clinton.”

Secretary Clinton in a June 2011 conference in Istanbul, Turkey remarked how certain comments from those concerned about Islamic fanaticism have been deemed as “incendiary” and looked to sympathize with efforts that would criminalize certain speech that is “an incitement to imminent violence.”

“This language -- “incitement to imminent violence” -- has been used time and time again to close events here in the United States concerning the impact of Islamic shariah law, detain law-abiding Christians elsewhere, and now even target and detain as security threats people from State Department events,” said Lafferty.

“The very restriction on free speech the UN Resolution was pushing is exactly what they used against me,” said Lafferty.

“I had warned previously how members of the U.S. State Department and Hillary Clinton have pointedly remarked that part of the implementation of U.N. Resolution 16/18 will be an effort to utilize “techniques of peer pressure and shaming” to silence critics of Islamic shariah,” said Lafferty. “Little did I realize how quickly Clinton and her Islamist friends were set to make examples out of law-abiding Americans.”

In response being detained unlawfully, Andrea Lafferty has written a letter to the U.S. State Department asking for both transcripts and written records of the individual who called to identify her as a “security threat” to Secretary Hillary Clinton during the closing events capping off the three-day closed door conference to discuss the implementation of UN Resolution 16/18.

“I want to know precisely who identified me as a so-called security threat,” said Lafferty. “When concerns over the tactics of “peer pressure and shaming” were precisely why Christian groups and others were so alarmed about this closed door three day conference, why would the State Department use those precise tactics to forcibly detain me?”

“Unfortunately, the December 14th incident demonstrates how some officials in our State Department have come down with a bad case of exactly what needs to be cured in non-democracies scattered across the Middle East,” said Lafferty. “Dissent and free speech critical of Islam only pose a threat to those who fear the free exchange of ideas critical to representative government -- and “threatening” to those who see dissent as something that needs to be punished or crushed.”

(End of story, my comments follow.)

Okay, I've no doubt this isn't all that unusual to have an overzealous security detail boot possible troublemakers from a public meeting. It happens.

What I find disturbing is the complicity of State Department personnel who seem to be going an extra mile in silencing possible dissenters.

It doesn't even take the involvement of a higherup to make this happen, just some cube ape acting on their assumed authority. That can happen at anytime no matter what political group is in power.

But the troubling thing is that it happens all too often lately, too many of our self-appointed ruling class (government workers of all stripes) are assuming dictatorial roles. This comes from a mindset starting at the top and seeping it's way down through the ranks.

Too damned much of it, in the most surprising circumstances.

These fools are forgetting who pays their salaries, who their real boss is.

Just my opinion.
