Free Speech Group Doesn't Allow Attendees to Speak

freespeechzone.jpgJust when you thought the Republicans couldn't get any more Orwellian, the Minneapolis task force formed to ensure the free speech rights of protesters at the upcoming Republican National Convention silenced attendees at their meeting today. The attendees resorted to holding up handwritten signs. You can read the full story as reported by Minnesota Public Radio which didn't miss the irony of this.

Or you can just read 1984.


I heard the story on MPR. The council member Paul Ostrow who was running the meeting is truly a descent fellow. I do believe he is looking to make protests safer and better - even trying to score PA equipment for folks.

It sounded like it was a preliminary meeting with public debate slated for an upcoming meeting.

Poor Ostrow - no good deed goes unpunished.
