Skip to comments.Secret Service shuts down ‘fire Eric Holder’ protest
Posted on 07/02/2012 10:02:30 AM PDT by tutstar
U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House.
After discovering a suspicious package, the Secret Service ended the protest. Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area, Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform. The discover[y of] the unidentified package came just as the protest began gain traction.
The U.S. House of Representatives cited Holder for contempt of Congress on Thursday after he defied a subpoena demanding documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-walking scheme that claimed border patrol agent Brian Terrys life.
The Justice Department denied, in a February 4, 2011, letter to Congress, that law enforcement ever allow guns to be trafficked into Mexico. In December 2011, DOJ retracted that claim.
About 50 students congregated outside the White House this morning for the anti-Holder protest.

The Blaze says reason is suspicious pkg (no one there says that as far as I'm aware) http://www.theblaze.com/stories/secret-service-shuts-down-fast-and-furious-protest-due-to-suspicious-package/
I’m bettin’ there was no such “suspicious package”. This was broken up by the SS on orders from above. Bank on it.
The Brown Shirts have returned.
What did they do with this supposed package?
It was interfering with the daily trip to the brothel.
Are no longer allowed freedom of speech and to protest our government??
What, did Al Gore show up looking for new acolytes?
I second it. Nothing surprises me anymore.
Of course there wasn’t any thing suspicious.
Matthew Boyle just said they will post video soon!!
Gut instinct - it was planted to end the student protest. Oboma didn't want to hear it.
I “suspect” the Secret Service brought in the “suspiscious” package so they could shut down the protest.
Where were the Metropolitan Police?
Brown shirts is right!! Watch Matthew Boyle’s twitter feed, he’s going to post video soon. We have some admirable young patriots. It gives me hope. He wrote something the other day re FF and debunked a Fortune article.
I can’t believe how quickly things are going downhill!
In before some brainwashed FReeper calls this “Nixonian”.

So, the Occupy Washington crowd got to stay even after one of their members popped off a few assault rounds at the White House. But this crowd gets forcibly removed over some mysterious package that, as of yet, has not been reported as dangerous at all. Don’t take a brain surgon to figure out what’s going on here.
I’m sure it’s still OK to protest anything conservative .
No, remember that law they passed a couple of month ago about shutting down protests near government officials . You know, the law the msm didn’t cover.
Yeah, right..suspicious package.
As they say in Jersey, “I got yer suspicious package right here , pal”.
