    I know some of yall listen to Alex Jones regularly, some of yall vehemently hate him. Regardless of your views on this man or conspiracy theories in general I pity anyone who denies the egregious violation of the first amendment today in downtown Dallas.

    In case you don't know, there has been a big fiasco over the ceremonies today at Dealey Plaza. It started with the JFK conspiracy crowd trying to get permits for the event over a year ago. They were told by Dallas officials to sign up one year ago today. They applied that day and were informed that all the permits were already taken (by Lamestream media ofc). To add on top of that more recently it was expressly stated that anyone who openly stated they did not believe the Warren Commission version of events that day would not be allowed into the ceremonies. Heck they wouldn't even let the third man shot that day in who was a speaker at the 40th ten years ago (in case you don't know this man received shrapnel to the face that day from a bullet that ricocheted off the street, he also was denied being able to testify at the Warren Commission hearings).

    So today the conspiracy crowd gathered outside of the Plaza to talk to passerbys and hand out pamphlets. First they were told they could not hand out pamphlets (on public property mind you). After much harassment by the Dallas cops they were herded into, in the PDs own words, a free speech zone (that phrase alone makes my blood boil).

    Finally after the media dog and pony show was through the cops allowed them to come up to the barricades around Dealey. After being there for a bit and handing out more pamphlets and a little bullhorning, Dallas County Sheriffs come up to the crowd and with no warning started forcing them back. According to Jones' live broadcast they were even shoving and punching people to get them to move. Granted I haven't seen irrefutable proof of this but they do have a video up on infowars.com (if you dare to go there) that somewhat shows this happening. As far as I can tell there is nothing showing any of the protesters in any way physically provoking this action.

    Sorry but I have been absolutely sick to my stomach after hearing this broadcast today. Say what you want about conspiracy theorists but they SHOULD NOT have their first amendment rights forceably stripped. They really shouldn't have been banned from Dealey in the first place since that is definitely public property. So silly that the media got free reign to parrot something that most polls show 90% of the public disagree with (whether its full on CIA conspiracy or simply Communists supporting Oswald in his assassination).

    If your account of events is correct, that is definite infringement of rights.
    Those responsible should be arrested and stripped of their rights.

    That does look bad. Apparently Alex Jones has vowed to file lawsuits against both Dallas authorities and individual police officers who took part in it. I certainly hope more people than just him get involved in the lawsuit... He has the tendency to take a legitimate issue and pound it into irrelevance. His "rablerable 1776!!!!!! rablerablerable" detracted from the video and lent zero credibility to the issue.

    Yeah, I have a comment. There is no context with that video, and no evidence of any rights being violated.

    2nd, the OPs allegations have zero support or link to any evidence. The OP wrote,
    To add on top of that more recently it was expressly stated that anyone who openly stated they did not believe the Warren Commission version of events that day would not be allowed into the ceremonies

    I have learned that when it smells like horse manure, it is.


    But you can believe whatever you like. Recently it was expressed that anyone believing these conspiracies have mental illness.

    That is an analogy, btw

    I'm just wondering why the conspiracy crowd group has to ruin a nice event.

    Have your theories, and get the word out. But why ruin an event? Reminds me of WBC at Chris Kyle's funeral. Or Atheist protesting the Manger at the local courthouse lawn. If I was visiting the ceremony down there and some protestors were handing out pamphlets to derail the somber intention, I'd be annoyed. Probably throw the pamphlet in the nearest trash and consider the protestors jerks and not give their position another thought. In fact, that irritation and no tact behavior would detract from their message.


    This is why we don't have nice things.

    Yeah, okay, some guys with different opinions weren't allowed to speak by the police.

    BUT DID YOU SEE MILEY CYRUS LASTEST CRAZY HAIRCUT IN HER NEWEST TWERKING VIDEO???? ITS ON ALL THE MAGAZINE COVERS, OMG!!!!

    I'm a very conservative white male over 50. I read InfoWars occasionally when my daughter comes home from Austin and brings a copy. Just because he is out there on the fringe doesn't mean he is always wrong. Thanks for sharing the video link.
