Dallas Police Assault Free Speech Activists, Punch Alex Jones

Protesters were peacefully assembled outside a barricade in downtown Dallas near the site of the official commemoration of JFK.

The barricades were opened and almost out of nowhere, police marched through and forcefully pushed protesters back, with several being violently assaulted, including radio host Alex Jones who was punched in the stomach.

One of the victims of the violence was a father with his young daughter on his shoulders. The girl began crying, but was pulled to safety by her mother.

I guess AJ got the kind of attention he wanted? I don't know.

I had a permit breached once and not only did I get an apology but the director of the area was fired..
I wish this group good luck on whatever it is they are trying to accompish.

You still don't know what they were doing there?!

They were there specifically because this permit process deliberately excluded everyone who didn't serve their official purpose. You said that bothered you too. Why is that still somehow vague to you?

When AJ and crew attended, it wasn't to make that any more than this.

Yes, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, had they reacted wrong, but that they were even forced to endure that is very wrong. The Sherriff's dept. AND DHS's direct involvement, when no service duty was required in pushing them back, was no more than an act of tyrannical bullying!

I have been refused permits.. when A.N.S.W.E.R was protesting, I tried to pull a permit and was told A.N.S.W.E.R. pulled it first and that's it.. and it seemed for about twi years the ONLY group able to get a permit was A.N.S.W.E.R.

Did I protest A.N.S.W.E.R.? No. Did I go to THEIR EVENT and have my own? Well, yes.. I had signs and was with Nader's campaign then.. so I worked THEIR event. No problem.

They were not issued a permit because there was already an event. Duh! What's the issue?

Getting the truth out.. but instead, you wind up with a with good people getting pushed around by the Sheriff who has better thing to do.

Now.. if that had been me... I would have rented a hall nearby.. Maybe have a Mark Dice kind of thing.. there are many ways to make a statement.. Dead shows Wharf Rats carried yellow balloons..

I wish protests would get creative again.. deep sigh

Well ooook. Liberty is a permit!!!

On peaceful people, yes.

One of the concerns going to a protest is all it takes is one bomb to ruin it for everyone.. infiltraitors who will sabotage an event by vandalizing or starting a fight with someone who is there to protest the protest. By getting a permit, you are getting "protection", same way getting a driver's license.. you can drive without a license like you can protest without a permit, but if you get hit by another car, or pulled over.. or someone decides to throw a rock through a window at a protest.. no permit and you get fined, or go to jail and we've all seen videos of police pulling people over that wound up violent.. car or protest, when it get's violent it sucks and that's what I want to avoid.

see it or not...

There is a revolution in America going on right now. Its in the beginning stages, but its happening! granger WE THE PEOPLE have the right to free speech and peaceful protests. As soon as government regulates this at all we have tyranny!

As Dr. Paul explained in a free society you have the right to do what you will, as long as it don't cause harm to others.

How can we have a peaceful revolution and protest againt tyranny, if we only do it by their rules?? We as tax paying and citizens, and employers of these public servants have a right to peacefully protest as we see fit! You either honor the bill of rights , or you don't!
Granger you have been conditioned to think you need a permit in a public setting to exercise your right!

Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves...the land of liberty needs a regime change!


May seem strange, but I got the message through the poetry of e. e. cummings.. discussion we had about him and how was he able to write in lower case.. the instructor explained that e.e. had mastered the language, and once you master something, breaking rules is what you get to do.. simple.. but the point I came to understand was, once you know the rules, then the rules no longer become the problem.

To me, a permit is no problem unless they won't issue it.. THEN I have a problem.

I have experienced poorly managed protests.. I have friends who spent time in prison from poorly managed protests.. I have a few friends who were arrested hundreds of times protsting nuclear tests in NV.. I have a lot of experience which is how I know about getting a permit.. otherwise it's a rave, eh? Rave's happen. Illegal protests happen, people drive without licenses too.. and if you want to change the law you have to use the law to do it.. you want to protest the law.. you have to use the law to do it.. you want to write everything in small caps and make your point, you have to master language to do it.

Lots of times infiltrators are the police. I've seen it.

And some of the time they start the violence.

How does a permit protect us from that?

People who get a drivers license automatically turn into state loving sheep, never to piss off the police??? If I attend a protest and a cop car ends up on its back, but there's a permit for the protest, no jail no fine???

I'm now starting to see how that piece of paper grants you your God given right to speak solves all of the violent problems. Sleepy, I'm getting verrry sleepy.

I've seen it too

Depending on the venue, you may need insurance and your own security, so you have this.. the event begins.. somewhere in the event some group whose purpose to sabotage the event shows up.. they turn a police car on it's back.. hopefully, those who did that are apprehanded, and then I can file charges against them.. anyone hurt, I contact the insurance company.. will I go to jail for those who turned the police car on it's back? No.

Events take planning, so by the time you have an event you usually KNOW what officer is in charge, or you have a number to call.. you've been through several meetings, paid a lot of money up front..

And yeah, Ira.. these little pieces of paper, from FRNs to permits gives us the right to do what others might not appreciate.

Rome once sold Indulges on paper contracts

Was God obligated to pardon every sin and welcome into heaven, anyone who paid enough wealth into church coffers, and had a contract issued by men with spiritual-sounding titles who forged his Name on the permit?

The interesting thing about "Rome"

is there are many orders within, and they all have their ways (laws), which the world sees as the whole, rather than a little part, of "Rome".

In the past three years my Church has had a Dominican, Benedictine and now Carmelite pastor (any yet, many want a Franciscan or Jesuit or God only knows who else they pray will come and save us from ourselves. :)

Sects, perhaps, but one pope and one trough, eh?

Shades of emphasis on the same error doesn't make one shade more true than another. Whatever Indulgences meant to which sect isn't as relevant as the awareness outside of Rome that such nonsense was commonly followed as biblical by a huge number of Romanists, at that time, because the peoples priests were complicit in the rewards of this grievous deception.

Permission to sin was granted, because forgiveness was feigned to be offered by mortal men with noble titles.

No not sects, we have those too

Who needs permission to sin?

Either you take responsibility for what you think, failed to think, what you do, and fail to do, or you don't.

Forgivness is the Lord's.

We're all mortal men, even the Pope.

The Cate4chism of the Catholic Church is a great book because after thousands of years the Catholic Church most definately has impressed human life in many ways, good and bad, for better or worse, through sickness and in health.

I think if God askes us one question after life it's "Do you love Israel?" I know Catholics going to Hell and Heaven, preist and flock if that is the question. :D

Love is the answer.. no love for the Catholic Church.. inward to where you find LOVE.


Many people appreciate this radical Catholic group http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/intro_and_about.php

Feet firmly planted in mid-air, you think WHAT?

Sistah, I gotta ask you, WHAT and WHY would God ask, "'Do you love Israel?'" Please, help me understand why you believe the Gospel would focus and hinge so singularly on that.

I know well of Israel's legitimate place in history and prophetic events, past and present, that ought to cause folks who care what holy scripture says, to understand and heed what it does and doesn't say!

I read also where it says, "And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God." Galatians 6:16 Clearly there is an, "Israel of God", to be recognized by those who wish for peace and mercy. It clearly implies there is an Israel, NOT of God, or he wouldn't have made the, "of God", distinction, eh?

That being said, there are also, "them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan" Rev. 2:9; and again it is written warning against, "them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie" Rev. 3:9

To be nonsectarian, Jesus even said to the church He commended, "thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars", Rev 2:2, so lying is a nondenominational occurrence that ought to be weighed by common believers rather than titled hierarchy with vested interests, eh?

this sums it up (though hagee is way out there, I appreciate his passion) http://www.jhm.org/Home/About/WhySupportIsrael

Though I should say.. it was not so impersonal.. it was .. it was like being given the greatest gift next to life.. it's a kind of freedom that is profound, like a blessing.

Apples and Avocados both start with "A", eh?

But your reply is more fruity than either. I'll get back ASAP, but I have stuff I gotta do. Aloha to you, my liberty friend, but as to some of your disconnected notions like Hagee's cult, I'll have to get back when I have more time.

Everything pertaining to false apostles applies to Hagee, as I read scripture, but that doesn't mean he doesn't say some biblical things occasionally. He is a prime, "sheep's clothing", kinda guy!

Aloha to you Bruddah

It's not Hagee.. it's what he sums on that page.

Maybe this explains better cult of this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFk2SQfoBio
or the cult of this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr_eJsMcdVo

How do you compare

Hagee with Anderson?

Reason #5 on Hagee's list of reasons Christians should support Israel reads:
"Why did Jesus Christ go to the house of Cornelius in Capernaum and heal his servant, which was ready to die? What logic did the Jewish elders use with Jesus to convince Him to come into the house of a Gentile and perform a miracle?

The logic they used is recorded in Luke 7:5; "For He loveth our nation, and He hath built us a synagogue." The message? This Gentile deserves the blessing of God because he loves our nation and has done something practical to bless the Jewish people."

False on several counts! First, the centurion in Luke 7 is unnamed in the gospels and is only presumed by Hagee to be the same man as the man in Acts 10 whose name is Cornelius and happens to be a centurion also. Luke wrote both the gospel that bears his name AND the Book of Acts, but he himself doesn't make that connection, so why let Hagee?

The centurion in Luke 7 confessed of himself that he was NOT worthy that Jesus should enter under his roof, despite whatever the elders said on his behalf, and then he bids Jesus,"...but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel." Luke 7:7-9

Jesus didn't marvel often, but this unnamed, Gentile, Roman Captain of one hundred, blew away the weaker faith of all those He found in Israel. By understanding how real authority works, even above Caesar, he trusted that Christ's spoken word, alone, would heal his servant.

The elder's testimony of the centurion's worthiness for Jesus to go there was not given as the "logic" that "convinced" Jesus to go and heal his servant. It didn't hurt, but it wasn't given as a deciding factor the way Hagee retells it.

And here I took the passage as merely a confirmation of the second coventent, for which I am eternally grateful.

Granger, can you explain this?

"And here I took the passage as merely a confirmation of the second coventent, for which I am eternally grateful."

It baffels me. Looking through your history it seems you hate Christianity. You hate the foundation, you hate the truth. Why so much hate are you spreading to people that respect Ron Paul's message of truth?

Why Granger?


I don't hate Christianity.

What post did I make that gave you that impression?

I'm proud of the people not in uniform.

They conducted themselves with dignity while standing up for truth.

The mindless idiots exposed their lack of principles and it's the education people need to see.

Thanks for the post.

a violent gang of union thugs

those police employees were pissed because they had to work, everyone knows that union thugs hate to work, especially in the rain.

Who Sucker Punched Alex?

I also was watching the live stream but, in all of pushing I couldn't see who actually did it? Alex mentioned that he thought it was the sheriff/Federal police.

This is like Tianamen Square or the North Korean crack down on free speech. Our first amendment is being destroyed by our government.

Hail Hitler

Hail Hitler

I watched what I could

most of the afternoon. While I'm not a big Alex Jones fan, I have to give him credit. When the Dallas Police told him they set up a "free speech zone" I watched the crowd. Alex Jones tamped down the sentiments and they all moved to the "free speech zone." There were no incidences.

It's my understanding, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, the crowd was to wait in the "free speech zone" and after the ceremonies were over and the barricades came down, they could walk through Dealy Plaza. The crowd waited and when the barricades were coming down and the ceremony was over, the crowd walked towards Dealy Plaza. They were meant by Sheriff's Deputies (not the Dallas Police). I watched and wondered why these deputies were creating a hostile environment. Law enforcement started pushing and shoving people. I understand this may have been the result of some mush for brains idiot from the Department of Homeland Security, on his/her orders. This is reasonable, Homeland Security gets involved when there's no reason for them to even be in the vicinity.

As the crowd yelled, "you should be ashamed of yourselves" I was right with them. I also blame the Dallas Police for not intervening on behalf of the crowd, they should be ashamed of themselves too.
