Staff action report and footage of censorship and violence surrounding the anniversary of a political assassination
November 23, 2013
Dallas Co., Texas sheriff’s deputies, under federal control during special events, violently charged a peaceful crowd who were waiting to be let into the Dealey Plaza when it was promised to be open to the public at 2:30pm on Nov. 22, the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.
When the attack began, the official ceremony was already over and Dealey Plaza was practically empty.
One deputy at the scene admitted he was “just following orders from the sheriff’s department.”
The sheriff’s department, on the other hand, was following orders from the Department of Homeland Security, who controlled the entire event.
Infowars is seeking additional footage of the attack. If you recorded video while on the scene at the time, please upload it to YouTube or another video upload site and send us the link to the uploaded film to [email protected]
WARNING: Strong language and violence
The deputies pushed the protestors back past the Old Red Museum of Dallas County and into the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza, which is at least one block away from Dealey Plaza:
Last week, the Coalition of Political Assassinations “struck a deal” with the City of Dallas to allow open, public access to Dealey Plaza at 2:30pm and be “allowed” to leaflet the area around the assassination site.
Basically speaking, the City of Dallas suspended the First Amendment but under threat of lawsuit recognized some, but not all, of our birth rights.
“It was basically a free-speech lockout in the whole city, but we’ve gotten that back,” said COPA director John Judge. “We would like to be where we were for the last 49 years [marking the day with a moment of silence.]”
“Half of my members wanted to go to court, and half wanted to take the mayor’s offer.”
In response, we traveled to Dallas to cover the City of Dallas’ blatant censorship:
While protesting outside the private Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas, the Infowars crew and crowd were threatened with arrest for “violating city ordinances” by handing out flyers within 75 feet of a public road.
Because both sides of a street in Dallas are typically bordered by private property, this city ordinance nullifies our First Amendment rights to distribute flyers during a peaceful assembly in public.
Dallas police in particular talked about how they wanted to “put down” Alex Jones:
