.........and then get escorted out of the festival for causing a disturbance. Skip to the nine minute mark if you want to see where it gets really nasty.

Allen West just said in an interview that our tolerance of Islam will lead to cultural suicide.
Today it is bottles and rocks. Soon it will be guns and bombs. Synagogs and Churches will be attacked as soon as they have enough numbers here to feel confident in the attempt. Their purpose here and anywhere else they have immigrated to is not to assimilate into the adopted culture, but; to overwhelm it and subdue it. Western Civilization is not nor has ever been compatible with Islam. And it never can be. All you have to do is take them at their word and read some history.

Saw this vid earlier...disturbing? Uhmm, yeah. Especially the Police and the way they were complete and utter cowards. To proclaim not enough manpower to protect them (when clearly they do via video proof) , they were causeing a problem by exercising their free speech, they were kicked out and threatened with arrest.
History shows us this is the path not to take.

This should have been on every Network broadcast, newspaper headlines across the country and a Congressional investigation into the City and it's Police force policies, we got none, we will get none.

We're doomed

Nut cases on both sides. I suspect that both Jesus and the Prophet would be disheartened by the actions of those who call themselves followers.

This goes back to last year where they kicked out some missionaries handing out pamphlets, what else do they expect to happen? What do they expect to happen next year? While I don't personally support the decision of this group to protest I give 100% support to their right to do it. They aren't breaking any laws.

Now let me begin by saying that violence is not the right thing to do, I know it will be ignored but said anyway. Would it happen to make any difference if these "Christians" were none other than the funeral protesters from Florida that had recently made the public burning of the Koran to get attention. And if they were told to leave by police well ahead of this but choose to walk to the festival signing their songs & shouting out their religious beliefs. IMHO, I think they were lucky to get out of there alive, would you wear KKK garb to a NAACP rally & not expect trouble? Just asking.

Sam they were warned there might be violence AND then the police left since what they were they were doing was completely legal. Instead o leaving they should of taken action to contain the violence they knew was going to happen. This is a public street and the festival covers many blocks. While these protesters have to accept the possibility they might be attacked for their actions the actions of the police are not acceptable. You have a legal right in this county to freedom of speech and as long as you're not breaking the law or infringing the rights of others the police have an obligation to protect that right. The exact opposite happened here where the illegal actions of others were allowed to trample all over those rights.

You have group of people being pelted with rocks, plastic bottles, milk crates and other objects and you're going to cite those being pelted for causing a disturbance?

Apparently getting pummeled with rocks, plastic bottles and milk crates is now against the law. If you watch the video it wasn't until after they were pelted with the objects that the cops told them they were going to be arrested for causing a disturbance and that was well after the initial contact with the police. The fact is they weren't doing anything illegal.

If the roles were reversed, there would be front page news: "crazy right wing conservative Tea Party Christians go on racist rampage!!" But because Muslims were doing the stoning - SILENCE ... :alone:

This vid was a pretty bad situation. The media double standard is going to get people killed before too long. How much longer before someone gets stabbed? Or a bomb goes off? It's coming ....
