Arrested for Wearing a McCain Shirt

This is a little ominous. From the City of Brotherly Moonbattery:

On a tip from Murff.


Sorry about the kooky Infowars nonsense at the end of the video. Even blind squirrels find a nut sometimes.

This video had me at the edge of my seat, feeling the frustration of the narrator as someone was arrested for daring to wear a McCain Palin Tshirt. He lost me (and his own credibility) with that horrid cartoon at the end.

Truly PHILDELPHIA needs to dump that no good bunch of jerks running the city into the ground and have them all tarred and feathered

Those cops probably saved that idiot's life.

Yes, the cartoon at the end is a little much, granted. Remember that extremists and crazy people do come in all shapes and sizes.

Cartman- you're right. The cops probably didi save his life. But I also imagine that if he hadn't stopped to talk to the cameraman, he wouldn't have been arrested. Just like the protesters at the RNC, when the cops tell you to leave- just leave.

If it was a "toy weapon" why was it hidden in his shirt? It was clear that he wasn't arrested for wearing a McPalin shirt. He was probably just questioned for 3 minutes at some police station, anyway. If you can show proof that he was actually behind bars, then you've got a story.

When do you guys ever stop playing victim?

Two people lost their jobs for having a Kerry bumper sticker on their car after Bush won in 2004. A family got excommunicated from a church because they didn't support Bush. And there's always more where that came from. There are nutjobs on both sides. It's not just the far left.

And yes, it could very well be that the police wanted to distance the McPalin supporter to make sure he didn't get hurt. There are two sides to every story. We don't know the full story of this.

"And yes, it could very well be that the police wanted to distance the McPalin supporter to make sure he didn't get hurt."

I am Shocked that the avatars of Hope and Change would ever "hurt" a fellow American just because they are a member of the "48." Where is all the peace, love and understanding? Welcome to the Obama Thugocracy. Can't say we weren't warned.

P.S. How long before the mob shown in the video becomes the cadre of Obama's "Civilian Defense Corps." The people in this video are Brownshirts who have found their Fuehrer.

Why do these moonbats (looking at you virgomonkey) come on here and fail to provide even a link to support anything they say? Then, when faced with actual evidence contrary to their opinion they cry about there being two sides.

Here's a hint. Gather your sources, cite them, and form an argument.

Otherwise I get to say that Obama only got through college by sleeping with his white teachers. Michelle Obama is a transvestite. B.O. is planning to nuke Chicago so he can make an executive order placing him in power as long as he'd like. He drinks a cup of goat's blood every morning. You see where this is going? No source, no validity. Good luck.

Didn't the Philly crowd get the message from the 52/48 folks about "unity"?

Posted by: Dan Cleary at November 10, 2008 3:11 PM

Wow, riveting. And how terrible to see people so fired up about their country again.

Posted by: Howard at November 10, 2008 5:43 PM

Howard are they fired up about their country or about free gas and mortgage payments?

A guy with a McCain shirt walking into an obvious Obama happy crowd. The cops simply wanted to prevent an obvious incident. The guy kept persisting and he wouldn't listen, so the cops had to do what needed to be done to get him away from the crowd.

Btw, why would he need a toy sword in the back of shirt? What was the point of that? Not a smart move and obviously not a smart person.

Go to YouTube do a search, protestors are always removed from events no matter what side.

In this case the cops were doing the McCain protestor a favor.

Plenty of people are removed from events or rallies,

"In this case the cops were doing the McCain protestor a favor."

~Exactly. Showing dissent is no longer an option. Welcome to Amerika.

Cowlove, did you read what I said?
I said that protestors are removed from both sides, equally. Do a search on YouTube, TONS of people are removed when they're showing dissent to Bush or McCain or Palin. It's really no different, but at least you are trying to find something different.
The cops simply wanted to prevent something from escalating that's all. Think about it.

Posted by: Michael Scott at November 11, 2008 10:27 AM

Michael it's interesting that you point to the distinct difference between your examples simply by citing them.

"Protestors" were removed from the RNC convention for having dangerous weapons and generally acting like terrorists (rocking buses, throwing piss, etc. etc.). It's all well-documented. Protestors were arrested recently for refusing to remove themselves from the public right-of-way ahead of McCain/Palin's envoy. Also well-documented.

The guy in this video apparently needed protection from the hordes for wearing a t-shirt.

Does that register with you at all? Do you see how you're drawing comparisons between events that show no real similarity, other than police involvement?

Now, I'll agree with you on one point, this guy was dumb. He should have known how dangerous these Obama supporters are. The police sure did, didn't they?

Posted by: cowlove at November 11, 2008 8:33 PM

Wrong again, they were simply trying to prevent an obviously elated crowd in which emotion was running high.

What if someone were to walk in on your engagement party with your wife and tried to shit on it, how would you react?
Keep replying all you want, I know you're missing the point intentionally and I don't care to keep beating a dead obvious issue. Have a wonderful day. :)
