1st Ammendment Rights Are Under Attack!

John went to USC to witness and ask questions about Katie Couric getting the Walter Cronkite journalism award for her interview of Sarah Palin. He intended to also give away copies of his film but was literally prevented from doing so. He did not go there hoping for or expecting any sort of confrontation, especially with law enforcement. He was simply shocked and horrified by what happened there, as should every freedom loving American. He did absolutely nothing wrong and was handcuffed, detained and literally abused by law enforcement at the event. The video speaks for itself, John will have plenty to say about this very disturbing episode.

This video was shot and edited by Orange County Films. John Ziegler was not involved the the production or editing of this video in any way.

(Wow, talk about documenting your abuse for your court case! I'll keep you posted on this ridiculous event! Praying for John Ziegler! VN8)

Well, VN8 ... how coincidental! I've been pondering this very subject this past week. I think conservative thinking is putting us in a better position to expose the great media First Amendment dance that has been going on since the early television age. It seems we have allowed the First Amendment to be completely owned and operated by the mainstream media and the ACLU. Media believes the First Amendment applies only to them, and this is what we have to change. Media gaffes like the coverage (or lack thereof) of the Tea Parties was perfect exposure of the arrogance the mainstream media has. Lee has said many times that the media has a very narrow view of what free speech is He points out that any disagreement with their socialist line intolerable. Making it obvious to the public should be our focus.

OM1, don't forget the phrase in the video by the rent a cops, "official" media, whatever the hell that means. So for all us veteran YouTubers, descending on anything we want to video tape, if you aren't "official" be prepared to be handcuffed and escorted away from any event where you may not be welcome, public or not! The very first Amendment of our Constitution is being flushed right down the toilet.

I'm so steamed right now, I could fire a furnace of the Queen Mary across the Atlantic. What in the freaking hell have we done to allow all of this infringement upon our liberties?

To anyone who reads these comments and thinks that the Tea Parties were suppose to be freaking Prayer Meeting, I've got a *news flash* for ya, Christians have been praying for years! We finally got the call to arms! The time for praying isn't over, we will pray going into this movement, but we are mad as hell and we are NOT taking it any more.

If you didn't go to a tea party and you got your *information* from the MSM, you may very well not know what the hell you are talking about. I was only at one event, but it was very cordial but we were loud. We were expressing our passion for LIBERTY! We chanted, LESS TAX, MORE FREEDOM, we chanted USA USA USA, but we weren't hostile, we weren't throwing wet tea bags and we sure as hell were not exposing children to a venomous spectacle.

We are as mad as HELL and we are not taking it anymore. I believe a sleeping giant has been awakened and he woke up to find all his possessions had been stolen! One by one, like a thief in the night! He's going to be law abiding, but he's taking back what was his, what was his neighbors and what was yours but you may not be bright enough to figure out it is even gone.

Come on with your sanctimonious comments. I want you to comment every time I post a blog. I want other patriots of this movement to see just what has allowed this country to get into the condition it is in and exactly what we are up against.

Accuse me of being intolerant of ignorance. I damn sure am. Patience and compassion aren't my strong suit when it comes to ignorance. To the bloggers who can be patient and compassionate, hooray for you, I didn't get that gift. Keep up the great work, maybe you can educate mind numbed robots, chanting "kumbaya" and "hello no we want go" every time this Nations young men are called to serve Freedom across the globe, I for one have lost my ever living patience with them.

The sheep will continue to be led and the sheep dogs will pave the path. The wolves in sheeps clothing have been howling at the door and what did we do, we opened the freaking door and said come on in!

I have prayed that this day would come that a tax revolt would occur and it is here. I never dreamed it would be spawned by a President but it damn sure happened that way.

March on brave and courageous Patriots! In the words of the great General George S. Patton, "Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more."

AND a big P. S.

I didn't come to this blogging community to make friends and influence people. I came hear to be one small beacon of light, to discuss my opinions of politics and world events, so if you are a pantywaist, can't take the heat, stay out of the freaking kitchen. VN8

I've never wasted a pair of panties in my life! It is true that we need to get this country back on track, and it's not gonna be pretty. Liberal media has these people so confused, and so much at each others' throats that it's going to take hard work to unscrew it all. This alone alienates liberals. Taking back the country ain't a friendly card game. It's serious and getting seriouser by the minute.

Can you hear it,that is the sound of the shredder shredding the Constitution.

The most ironic part is,it happen at a college that teaches of all things, journlism.

Like you stated,unless you are one of the few authorized journalist,plan on being treated in this manner.
