  •  Happened a long time ago. (none)
    These people threw Democratic supporters out of Bush's campaign rallies last year. There were a ton of diaries on the topic. These people are as partisan as they come.
    •  I'm related (none)
      to one of "those people," and you're mistaken, they are not "as partisan as they come."

      Do we know for certain at this juncture that the harassers of the Denver Three were SS? And was anyone killed or even physically harmed at the event? Don't get me wrong--I don't think suppression of free speech should be taken lightly. I also don't think we should assume that all SS agents are jackbooted thugs. My cousin isn't, and I'm heartened at what I hear from him regarding dissent within the ranks.

    •  The Denver 3 Incident (none)
      was a GOP-Denver dude posing as a Secret Service Agent. And the 3 are actually suing. IIRC the papers reported who the guy was that did the posing. I think it was in the Rocky Mountain News.

      I'm wondering if some of the information that they now have is as a result of the news coverage following the Secret Service investigation of the situation.

      As for campaing rallies. Remember the Loyalty Oath/Pledge thingy? Isn't it possible that the Secret Service group was give orders from the higher ups that "Anyone without a wristband (or whatever they used to mark loyalty oath signers) should not be allowed to enter the event"?  Like it or not, the GOP presidential campaign events were marked as private invite/oath signers only affairs. This was covered widely in the media. To the best of my knowledge, private campaign events aren't illegal.

      Dems just had fewer of them...
