    I think whatever right is being more stringently observed is dependent on whose ox is being gored at the time..

    I woud also say that Occupy is a political force just like a party and as such should be under the same restrictions as everyone else.. whether it fits the precise definition of party is arguable

    Happy just to be alive

      recognizable political causes.  There is no doubt that "Occupy" is a recognizable political cause.  

      If this person had a "Tea Party" shirt, he would have been treated the same.  I've been to the Court a number of times, and I've seen them ask people to cover up shirts or leave.
