2000 'Brooks Brothers Riot' background:
The Brooks Brothers riot is the term coined to describe the demonstration at a meeting of election canvassers in Miami-Dade County, Florida on November 19, 2000, during a recount of votes made during the 2000 United States presidential election. The name refers to a traditional brand of suits associated with conservative business dress, reinforcing the allegation that the corporately attired protesters sporting "Hermès ties" were astroturfing, which is to say that they were not, in fact, just ordinary local citizens expressing their concerns about unfair counting practices. Hundreds of "paid GOP crusaders" descended upon South Florida to protest the state's recounts, with at least half a dozen of the demonstrators at Miami-Dade paid by George W. Bush's recount committee. Several of these protesters were identified as Republican staffers and a number later went on to jobs in the Bush administration.The most recent staged event to get the gullible and feeble minded drooling at the mouth, cheering the murder of someone in Pakistan:
The demonstration was organized by Republican operatives, sometimes referred to as the "Brooks Brothers Brigade", to oppose the recount of 10,750 ballots during the Florida recount.
After the Miami “Brooks Brothers Riot” – named after the protesters’ preppie clothing – no government action was taken beyond the police rescuing several Democrats who were surrounded and roughed up by the rioters. While no legal charges were filed against the Republicans, newly released documents show that at least a half dozen of the publicly identified rioters were paid by Bush’s recount committee.
The payments to the Republican activists are documented in hundreds of pages of Bush committee records – released grudgingly to the Internal Revenue Service last month, 19 months after the 36-day recount battle ended. Overall, the records provide a road map of how the Bush recount team brought its operatives across state lines to stop then-Vice President Al Gore’s recount efforts.
The records show that the Bush committee spent a total of $13.8 million to frustrate the recount of Florida’s votes and secure the state's crucial electoral votes for Bush.
Crowds react to the death of Osama Bin Laden in Washington, DC. This is between Lafayette Park and the White House.
Thousands of Americans, including many college students, gathered in front of the White House late Sunday night to celebrate the news of 9/11 terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden’s demise at the hands of U.S. special forces. Though students from Washington-area universities have final exams this week, all interviewed by The Daily Caller said they view bin Laden’s death as much more important.
College Republicans from the major campuses in the Washington metropolitan area brought American and Gadsen flags to display their patriotism, as College Democrats and liberal students led chants in favor of reelecting President Barack Obama shouting, “Four more years!” and “Yes we can!"
All those 'patriotic' Americans cheering the murder of someone in Pakistan, who was killed without a trial or even an indictment, are saying that they hate the Bill of Rights and have no need for its protections, that an omnipotent President can decide on a whim who to kill.
The USA didn't even bother to give some respectability to the murder of some Pakistani dupe by trying Bin Laden 'in absentia,' a legal strategy that has been used numerous times in the past to convict a wanted person and pass sentence.
If we did have the evidence that OBL was behind 9/11, then why didn't the DOJ put on a trial?
Because, as the FBI admitted, they DIDN'T have the evidence that OBL was behind 9/11.
"God Save the American King!"
