Fair protester, scuffle caught on video.

Alaska State Fair security arresting man with political banner.

Ten minutes of mayhem Thursday at the Alaska State Fair ... caught on video and posted on YouTube ... jump-started an Internet debate on free speech this week and landed a familiar roadside activist in jail.


Palmer police arrested Sidney Hill, 52, for assault, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, police commander Thomas Remaley said.

Fair marketing director Dean Phipps said Hill is known for waving signs near the Carrs grocery store in Palmer and apparently carried a large banner into the nearby fair Thursday.

It read "LaRouche says Impeach Obama Now."

The fair has an unwritten policy against people campaigning in common areas, Phipps said. The YouTube clip shows Hill clashing loudly with security guards before being forced to the ground and eventually arrested.

Phipps said Hill became aggressive and belligerent, trying to incite the crowd when security guards approached him. Some fairgoers said Hill didn't appear to be causing problems.

"He was just walking around with a sign," said Wendy Lewis of Anchorage.

I was watching the Texas Rangers at Minnesota Saturday when two people hung a sign over the low fence right behind the batter that was making some kind of statement about destruction of rain forests. This was obviously visible to the camera thats shows the best view of each pitch. Before you could even read the whole sign, security guards ripped the banner down and the two were escorted out by other security people. Your example was a right leaning protester, mine was a left leaning protester. I think the bottom line is that when you are on private property, the owner gets to say how much leeway you get with your free speech. It's not a right/left issue, so don't try to make it one.

Nooo. It's not a left wing thing.:thumbsup:
Picture this: a bunch of Young Republicans dressed in suits, ties and wingtip shoes marches down the mall toward the capital building singing Kumbaya and when they get there, they unfurl a banner with their cause emblazoned....."Save the Rainforest". Somehow, it just doesn't compute. :laughing:

I thought about that. Complaints like this from the party that wants to shut down free speech on the airwaves? I think the window of opportunity has closed on that little shenanigan.

Lyndon LaRouche

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyndon_LaRouche


Lyndon Hermyle LaRouche, Jr. (pronounced /ləˈruːʃ/; born September 8, 1922) is an American self-styled economist, political activist, and the founder of several political organizations known collectively as the LaRouche movement.

He has been a perennial candidate for President of the United States, having run in eight elections since 1976, once as a U.S. Labor Party candidate and seven times as a candidate for the Democratic Party nomination.

He is the founder and contributing editor of the Executive Intelligence Review, and has written prolifically on economic, scientific, and political topics, as well as on history, philosophy, and psychoanalysis.

He was sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment in 1988 for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and tax code violations, but continued his political activities from behind bars until his release in 1994 on parole.

His defenders believe the prosecution was a politically motivated conspiracy involving government officials and a mass-media brainwashing campaign.

His appellate attorney, Ramsey Clark, a former U.S. Attorney General, argued that the case represented an unprecedented abuse of power by the U.S. government in an effort to destroy the LaRouche movement.

LaRouche's supporters see him as a political leader in the tradition of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Martin Luther King, while other commentators regard him variously as a cult leader, fascist, or anti-Semite.

Norman Bailey, formerly with the National Security Council, described LaRouche's staff in 1984 as one of the best private intelligence services in the world, while the Heritage Foundation has said he leads "what may well be one of the strangest political groups in American history."


... even the Heritage Foundation hates this guy .... :laughing:
