George Clooney was hauled away by the Secret Service and arrested during a protest over the Sudan crisis in Washington, DC.
Clooney, his father Nick and dozens of other people were arrested including congressmen and the leaders of the human rights community protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.”
Clooney recently shot a short documentary about the situation in Suadan, which he released on EnoughProject.com
Reuters is reporting that Peter Smith, the University of Colorado Boulder student who attempted to glitterbomb Mitt Romney on Wednesday which and was stopped by the Secret Service has been officially charged with with creating a disturbance, throwing a missile and an unlawful act on school property. Smith, can face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
Smith has said that he was protesting Romney not only for his stance on same-sex marriage but his “general political philosophy” and added that agents questioned him about the act of glittering: “They just mentioned this act was an issue that they’ve been trying to deal with more and more.”
Look, if you’re want to make a point and protest and are willing to face jail time at least go back to the “Anita Bryant Fruit Pie Special”. It has LGBT historic meaning and nothing says homophobic clown like a pie in the face.
Glitterbombing is sooooooooooooo Martha Stewart on roids
GOP Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal who once referred to the First Lady Michele Obama as “Mrs. YoMama” has been busted by the Journal-World for sending out via email a thinly veiled email prayer for the death of President Obama.
The Journal-World also revealed that O’Neal had forward another email which referenced the Bible verse Psalm 109:8, which reads: “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”
The very next verse adds: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”
The verse became a conservative meme in 2009 after it began appearing on bumper stickers, t-shirts and even toys. The most common slogan was, “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8.”
I always thought death threats against the President were grounds for arrest for treason, even if it is sublimated in religious “freedom.” Perhaps its time that the FBI and the Secret Service actually start arresting all these crazy traitorous GOP asses.
