They Hate Our Freedoms

Police being... generally dickish... messing with students and clearing them out of the city, so as the rich and powerful and discuss their failed economy without the distracting nuisances of, well... the voices and the signs of the assembled pleebs.

“Americans are asking, 'Why do they hate us?' They hate what we see right here in this chamber: a democratically-elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms – our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.”

-President George W. Bush, during an address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American people, United States Capitol, Washington, DC, September 20, 2001
