President Obama was bound to receive a warm response from the audience attending his speech at the University of Central Missouri yesterday — because some students who disagreed with him weren’t allowed into the building.

Dictatorial prick. Suppression will only add to the pressure. One day, this balloon is going to pop.

As always, the evil needs to be confronted. What legal avenues are available to the Republicans? Was their discrimination; use of public funds, violation of school regulations, etc. Make the lefties lives as miserable as they try to do for Republicans and Conservatives.

Only to offer this observation. Commentary so far indicates it was the Secret Service....not the local university ‘owners’ of the building who dictated this. If true....you might as well rename the Secret Service....the ‘T-shirt-squad’ (TSS). The leadership of the Secret Service from the 1960s/1970s....would be embarrassed by this type of leadership and behavior.

Fear of t-shirts....even Jefferson would be laughing in his grave over this. We are no longer a democracy....if you fear t-shirts to this degree.

Based on what I’ve seen of his personal SS team, he’s filled it with politically amenable personnel. Like most government agencies now, I have absolutely no respect for them, nor the job they do.

I was watching a dung beetle yesterday. For a dung beetle a pile crap is the most beautiful thing in the world. They pick it apart, form it into a little ball, roll it home, and then consume it. I suppose they even hatch and raise their young in the little turds. It dawned on me that all these Obots are very much like the dung beetle.

If you work for Obama’s Secret Service you can have no respect for yourself.

Being conservative, they likely stood out, for having showered in the last week.

If someone from the Missouri or national GOP is reading: I suggest that a complaint be filed arguing that the exclusion of people suspected of holding dissenting views makes the President's appearance a campaign event, as opposed to a non-political presidential appearance. This would change how the trip and event are paid for.

The argument would be that the Obama campaign, as opposed to the White House, is perfectly entitled to impose a partisan political screen on attendees, and if such a screen was in fact imposed, the event should be deemed a political event and paid accordingly. This would affect the cost share on Air Force One, and it would also probably require the DNC or some other political entity to pay rental to the college for the use of facilities for a political rally. Or ... it would establish a precedent that the local Republicans can also use college facilities for political events free of charge.

The dollars involved are probably relatively small, but the principles are not.

1. How did they know these guys were Republicans?
2. I guess President Obama sees himself as President of some Americans, not all Americans. Americans were don't agree with the Alinskyite are enemies of the State as long as Obama is in power. It's going to be a long 3 1/2 years.

“1. How did they know these guys were Republicans? “

“Christopher White of The College Fix reports that students wearing “Tea Party T-Shirts and others who wore patriotic or Republican-inspired clothing” were turned away at the door under the guise of security concerns, despite the fact that they held tickets to the event.”

They were advertising that they are Republican. The democrats hide their political clothing in order to get into the event. Remember Code Pink?

Obama, like Clinton must have stacked audiences to perpetuate the illusion/delusion that they are popular and loved by the masses. 8 years of hammering Ronald Reagan could not suppress the admiration much of the nation had for him and 8 years of fawning over Clinton and Obama will not beat down the disgust most have for them.

Nope. Because it's what presidents do at these kind of things.

U of Arizona Young Democrat Banned From Forum

Demos Decry Bush Rally Outser Over T-Shirts

2 Ejected From Bush Speech Posed Threat

Court Says It's No Free Speech Violation To Kick People Out Of Presidential Speech Due To Their Bumper Stickers

All these things are scripted to make the president look good no matter who they are. It's not right. It's not fair. But it's something they all do.

Republicans need to learn how to dress for the part and run covert operations. Look at what the lefty did at the Zimmerman rally - she wrote that sign about being racist. She obviously didn’t have that sign made when she arrived at the rally.

I attended a speech by George W. Bush once. Had to be a registered Republican to get a ticket. I was wearing a USMC sweatshirt, and the SS made me lift it up to show the plain green T-shirt I had underneath.

I watched a group of 4 people get turned away because they were concealing Kerry T-shirts.

I have no idea but I doubt it. These things are generally 'invitation only' events rather than open meetings, and they can pretty much invite who they want.

Obama only speaks at colleges that are festooned with young, impressionable, newly-minted socialist stooges. Does he ever give speeches to groups of adults?
