    McCain was in Denver, CO, today for a town hall meeting. The event, at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, was billed as “open to the public.” Yet Carol Kreck, a 61-year-old librarian carrying a “McCain=Bush” sign, was taken away by police for trespassing.

    Kreck, who works as a librarian in Denver, held a homemade sign reading "McCain = Bush." On orders from McCain's security detail, police cited her for trespassing and escorted her to the sidewalk. She was told if she returned she would be arrested.

    "And all I did was carry a sign that said McCain = Bush," Kreck said. "And for everyone who voted for Bush, I don't see why it's offensive to say McCain = Bush."

    Watch it:

    Very sad how Free Speach is killed these days , but I dont fauly McCain for it, I highly doubt he would have wanted her removed for simply holding a sign.

    And they always claim Security when they remove protesters...like a Gunman would not just have on a Pro What ever guy was there sign/shirt ...

    I was told I could not go in the Obama rally with my No Obamanation sign. and was treated terribe outside the event. I did not realize I could complain about it. NO ONE was allowed to go in with an anti Obama sign.

    Now that I know I can complain about it, I feel a whole lot better!

    Obama is a Ba$!@$D for not letting me and the many other anti Obama people in the event!

    Gosh I am so glad to find out it was ok for me to be upset about it.

    Actually I was not upset till now, I just figured they had the right to keep me out, but I see that Obama never had that right, the scum sucker!

    Thank you so much Popeye for showing me that I was mistreated by Obama people!

    From the Denver Post:

    http://www.denverpost.com/headlines/ci_9811687

    In other words, this is like someone kicking an undesired guest out of their rental apartment. Also, it turns out the little old lady librarian is more than what the defamers want to conjure up - she's a librarian for a liberal think tank, and is a former liberal reporter.

    Another Poop-I defamation bites the dust.

    Well now that you've successfully related your story, do you feel the 61 yr old librarian was mistreated much the same way you think you were?

    Well I did not know I was mistreated till you told me so. I assumed it was his event and if he did not want me there with my anti obama signs, he probably had the right.

    I still think he has the right to keep me out of his event when all I am there to do is cause trouble, and I admittedly was, as was this old fart at the McCain event.

    So both mccain and obama are both wrong and either scum suckers or they both had the right.


    By the way, Hillary let people in her event even the sleazy obama supporters with their anti Hillary signs. She was man enough to let them in and protest with their signs.

    Just more proof Hillary has more balls than obama and McCain combined.

    Its clear you don't know anything about Politics , you really think McCain, Clinton, or Obama have anything to do with this? Its the people organizing the local event, aids, the Secret Service....its not like they sit and say hey remove that guy....YOu ever tried to get Near Bush at a Event with Anti Bush stuff? Guess what they kick you out as well...

    In 2000, they has Security remove Nader from the Debates ( to watch ) even though he even had a ticket to be there and had done nothing at all.

    The Obama website sent me an invitation to the event and told me in advance no brining your own signs. I dont know of Obama aproves his website or the things on it or the invitations he sends out signing his name to the emails to me.

    But I knew before I went that I would be turned away.


    When I was invited to Clintons event it did not have the rules about no signs exc.


    I really dont care how I was treated, my only point in brining it up was for popeye that if he is going to slam McCain for this then he needs to be honest enough to slam Obama for what he did at the event I went to.

    Huh? How does freedom of speech apply in this case?

    And frankly, the left these days has absolutely zero credibility to complain about the infringement of free speech.

    one day you will figure out that not everything in a Campaign has anything to do with the views or wants of the one running for office...Also you have never been fair at all when it comes to attacking McCain vs Obama so don't try to act all high and mighty calling for it now.

    comparing what happened to me to what happened to someone else is being high and mighty?


    ok

    There is so much for me to learn about people.

    I would guess the PC police are involved.... For example, which one the following is an unacceptable slogan:

    Latino Power
    Asian Power
    Black Power
    White Power

    Only one of those is considered to be a racist slogan, despite them all being identical in nature: Courtesy of the PC police.

    But thats only my guess.... SW85 probably has a much better answer.
