After last Thursday's arrestees were freed after being jailed on obviously bogus charges, the activists of DCMJ took it to the Capitol steps this afternoon for their "smoke-in" civil disobedience to demand Federal descheduling of cannabis and an end to Congressional interference of DC citizens' right to make their own laws. Four activists were arrested for lighting up on the East Lawn of the Capitol.
Looks like we got more free publicity than we could handle today at DCMJ's "Joint Session" legal joint giveaway for US Capitol employees at 1st and Constitution Avenue NE, across the street from the Capitol.
Although they were set up on DC territory, on the sidewalk in front of the Reserve Officers' Association building, US Capitol Police chose to leave Federal land and come into DC to harass and arrest several volunteers involved in checking ID's and giving out joints.
When Uncle Sam starts waving the bloody dead children around, you know they're scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to lame excuses for war. It's a wheeze that goes back to World War I and earlier. It's as if they aren't even trying anymore.
Here's House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- a classic craven, crawling Democrat if ever there was one -- with just the kind of lame, basic horseshit that really sticks in my goddamn' craw:
America cannot stand on the sidelines and watch as children suffer. We must act. https://t.co/lbec1D8Yos— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) April 7, 2017
There is no doubt in my mind that America has the relentlessness and tenacity to fight for the world’s children. https://t.co/lbec1D8Yos— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) April 8, 2017
