Somebody at the White House does not appreciate the media covering embarrassing protests. In the video below, the police bark orders at the media, telling them to go the hell away. From Democracy Now:
In Washington, DC, at least six people were arrested Tuesday in a protest against the ban on openly gay and lesbian servicemembers in the military. The protesters handcuffed themselves to the fence in front of the White House. The group included Lt. Dan Choi, an openly gay servicemember who’s faced discharge since publicly defying “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” last year. Choi was arrested in a similar action in front of the White House last month. The protest came one day after gay rights activists confronted President Obama as he addressed a fundraiser for California Senator Barbara Boxer in Los Angeles. The activists urged Obama to carry out his vow to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Obama responded by insisting he will eventually fulfill his pledge.
Don’t forget, boosting your immune system during a crisis is just as important as storable food! Don't wait until it's all gone!
