Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Dem brownshirts have ABC reporter jailed

Someone remind me again how Bush is the one who is the heavy-handed tyrant?  Man, those Dems sure are thin-skinned these days, aren’t they?  Anywho, from ABC News:

Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic Senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.

Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, who works with the ABC News investigative unit.

It was two hours later when Denver police arrived to place Eslocker under arrest, apparently based on a complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel, a central location for Democratic officials.

During the arrest, one of the officers can be heard saying to Eslocker, “You’re lucky I didn’t knock the f..k out of you.”

Eslocker was released late today after posting $500 bond.

Eslocker and his ABC News colleagues are spending the week investigating the role of corporate lobbyists and wealthy donors at the convention for a series of Money Trail reports on ABC World News with Charles Gibson.

Exit question #1: Is it a violation of Godwin’s Law to compare these tactics to a certain party in 1930’s and 1940’s Germany?  Just sayin’…

Exit question #2:  Is this blatant disregard for the First Amendment, as well as the tendency to want to sue/jail a perceived political threat, what we can expect from Senator Hopenchange should he get elected?

  1. The video of the arrest is great. One doughnut-eater gets right up into Eslocker’s face and shoves him into the street, then tells him that he’s blocking traffic. All on camera. Gotta love it.

  2. Has anyone else noticed the complete lack of coverage of the protests going on outside the convention? Hundreds have been arrested, but nary a peep from the MSM.

    I’ll bet we’ll see every nutroot marching in Minneapolis with an Impeach Bush sign though!

  3. Does any of this remind you of “Mace the nation” and “Beat the press”?

  4. I’m not sure how this has anything to do with democrats making the arrest? Some cocky cop arrested someone he shouldn’t have. It happens fairly often.. it’s good to see the victim had a news crew with him this time.
