Let's do an experiment.
If you're a confirmed Obama hater, gather up a few dozen of your supporters, and march down Pennsylvania Avenue shouting "this regime must be destroyed!"
Whadya figure's gonna happen?
Do you think the Washington authorities will be content to escort you back home to serve your house arrest term?
Or might something more ominous lie in store for you?
Likewise those fake "punk rockers," Pussy Riot. Let them bring an "Obama Prayer" to defile the National Cathedral and see what happens.
The NED crowd promote the fiction that America is some sort of "exceptional" role model to the rest of the world when it comes to matters of liberty and freedom of speech.
Like all great prevailing fictions, this one holds a kernel of truth; if you speak for big capital in America you will enjoy great freedoms.
If not, you're out of luck.
And quite often dead or in jail.
