“You must be the change you wish to see in this world”

"Let us become the change we seek"

- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

“Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind”

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable"

- John Fitzgerald Kennedy  

 

  "A Truth, Love, and Freedom movement... working to change our 
political and economic systems through restoring OUR Country to The
Founding Principles, highlighted in the Bill of Rights. Regardless of  
propaganda levied against us, we are a NON-violent group, simply 
engaged in protected First Amendment Free Speech and Media. 
Freedom of Speech is NOT terrorism, as many mainstream news 
channels may imply on a continual basis.  Our UNALIENABLE 
Rights like Assembling and Bearing Arms are fueled by just existing on 
this planet. These Rights were fought for by the Sacred Blood of our 
Ancestors and the war continues to this day.  Presently, we 
are being heavily attacked in the Spiritual realm, yet we know we must 
be as gentle as a dove and as strong as a lion.  If you want to change 
something just look in the mirror and the world will start changing 
around you. We Respect and Honor Individuals who uphold their 
Oaths to the Constitution.  For the rest of you, may history forget 
you were Our Countrymen. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds 
you. The one who worships the Old World Order through false mental 
constructs by means of chaos, money and authority ought to be 
ashamed. We will NOT submit to this tyranny! Stand with us, while we 
build a commUnity that will make you proud, on the Right side of 
history!!"

Boulder, Co. — Former attorney general, John Ashcroft was in town Tuesday night speaking at the University of Colorado. The event was sponsored by the CU Student Union’s Cultural Events Board and drew a crowd of about 500. The talk was entitled “Freedom and Security in Post 9/11 America”. For a modest $5.00 ticket price the public either paid to listen, or heckle this former Bush official. At times the heckling was non-stop.

 

Before filing into the auditorium students and the general public were searched by police and striped of all video cameras, audio recording devices, and liquids of any sort. Still cameras were however permitted.

With in a few minutes into John Ashcroft’s speech, a group of silent protesters from Students for Peace and Justice stood up in unison and turned their back on him baring stenciled white shirts with the words “Shame” and “How would a real patriot act.” Tied over their eyes and mouths were American flag bandanas. The group would remain standing quietly for almost 10 minutes before being asked to sit down or leave by event organizers.

Ashcroft paid no attention to this group of students and proceeded with the message he came to deliver. Like a salesman trying earnestly to get you to buy his snake oil he peddled sales pitch, after sales pitch. It was like watching a Fox newscast on steroids.

As the speech progressed, it became quite evident that those in attendance would not stand for Mr. Ashcroft’s feeble attempt at convincing the audience he was indeed a constitutionalist, and that the Patriot Act which he helped pen did not violate the Bill of Rights. This rhetoric often resulted in loud gasps, and angry shouts from those in the audience who disagreed. The former attorney general jokingly responded to such outbursts by insinuating that they may need “medical attention”, or smugly proclaiming that maybe they just “need to be medicated.”

One would wonder what Ashcroft was expecting when he agreed to speak at CU in Boulder, Colorado, which boasts a large Libertarian population. Not only are they aware of what’s written in the Constitution they are also quick to point out that it was originally drafted on hemp.

Judging by the mild applause that Ashcroft received, probably half or less then half of those in attendance actually supported him. However these supporters were no where to be found during question and answer time as the disapproving majority jumped in lines behind the microphones in order to seek answers to their Constitutional concerns.

The questions were fierce, direct and well researched. No one held back. They asked him about torture, our reputation in the world, the missing Weapons of Mass Destruction, and how we failed to capture Osama Bin Laden. They defended the Bill of Rights admirably, and spoke about the founding fathers.

Unfortunately Ashcroft did everything but answer the questions. The crowd intently watched the stage as this lawyer danced in the rain without getting wet. However avoiding the questions only infuriated the crowd and soon dozens of people just began shouting questions to Ashcroft. That’s when the question and answer session ended. For some reason Mr. Ashcroft thought that he could come to the front of the stage and maybe sign some autographs, and that the persistent questioners would simple turn around and leave now that the question and answer session officially was ended. Was he ever wrong! More than three dozen people met him there at the front of the stage demanding answers, and after only one autograph John quickly fled backstage.

It was a tough night for John, he certainly had to work for the $20,000 that he was paid for his attendance. You can watch all the nights events in the video below which was released by WeAreChangeColorado.org and TruthAlliance.net. However not all of the protests and confrontation methods can be attributed to these two groups, as there were other protest groups at the event as well. Including vflog.com, Students for Peace and Justice, and numerous concerned citizens not affiliated with any group.
