*Do Not Look Upon the King* Part 2- Bush has a MANUAL to keep critics away from his *public* events

1 July 2007 at 9:20:07 AM

That bears repeating. When Bush goes somewhere, at enormous expense to the US taxpayer, one presumes that, um, the *public* is invited and he's not actively working to keep out people who may not agree with him. Well, Yes. He is.

Two people ejected from a Bush speech in Denver over a bumper sticker have filed a second lawsuit, claiming a White House manual unlawfully bars potential critics of the president from public events.

The Presidential Advance Manual calls for Bush volunteers to distribute tickets in a manner to deter protesters and to stop demonstrators from entering. It also calls for "rally squads" to drown out demonstrators and get between them and news cameras. The manual was obtained through a deposition in a West Virginia case.

Unbelieveable! Wussy Bush is SO afraid for the media to see anyone who doesn't agree with his policies that he has shills to divert or deflect attention.

The lawsuit is aimed at Gregory Jenkins, a former deputy assistant to President Bush and White House director of advance, who ordered the four removed.
The combination of the manual and the exclusion of people who had not disrupted events "suggests there is a formal, official policy of trying to keep hidden from the press and the president anyone who disagrees with the president," said ACLU attorney Chris Hansen.

Hansen is arguing that people can be ejected from official presidential events "only upon disruption," and not because of their viewpoints. He wants a federal judge to declare unconstitutional the policy of excluding people from presidential events due to their viewpoints or on the assumption they will become disruptive.
The Justice Department, which is representing Jenkins in the Denver pair’s original lawsuit over their ejection, did not return a call and e-mail seeking comment.
Hansen said he was struck by the manual’s advice to ignore demonstrators who cannot be seen by the media. "The president must know there are people in this world who disagree with him," he said.

Of course he does. He just doesn't want the rest of this country or the world to know.
