D-1: 'We will not be silenced!'

UPDATED & BUMPED: Security is ultra-heavy:
To the uninformed visitor, it has become difficult to tell whether Denver is preparing for a Democratic National Convention or the institution of martial law. Helicopters filled with armed commandos swooped over downtown in a training exercise earlier this summer. A warehouse was converted into a temporary jail with chain-link fences and signs threatening the use of electric stun devices. Travel agents sold getaway packages to locals, with one company imploring residents to "escape town while you still can."
Dang. Someone must have warned them I was coming.

UPDATE: Last word before packing up for Dulles, and VodkaPundit tells ABC News and the protesters, "Welcome to Denver, Now Go Away."

PREVIOUSLY: I'll be boarding a plane for Denver pretty soon, and must make final preparations, but check out (via No Quarter) this new documentary:
We believe that the The Democratic National Committee (DNC) made a grave error by depriving American voters of their choice of Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominee. Senator Clinton, by all accounts, except caucuses, won the Primary Election and, therefore, should be the 2008 Democratic Nominee. That didn't happen, due largely to illegitimate and illegal acts. . . .
This documentary is about the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign. . . . We want to be heard and let the country know how our party has sanctioned the actions of what we feel are Obama campaign "Chicago Machine" dirty politics.
Here's a preview clip:

"It was unbelieveable that this could be happening . . ."

Hmmm. Corruption? In the Democratic Party? Somebody ought to write a book about that.

UPDATE: So far, the protest scene in Denver is incredibly lame. Michelle Malkin reports from the scene Saturday at Planned Parenthood:

The pro-abortion presence was measly. I counted about seven or eight demonstrators who tried to compensate for their low numbers with their loud mouths.
Liberals were too busy getting ready for the Salon party.


  1. The negative bounce that you predicted has arrived:

  2. Heh.

    Denver gets a zillion Dems, black-helicopters, and Class III body armor.

    Milwaukee gets a zillion Harley riders, and higher hotel/motel prices.

    I'll take the 105th of Harley, thanks.
