Georgetown Univ Students Turn Their Backs on US Attorney General
Standing Up For Freedom - This Is Serious...
Georgetown University students turned their backs on US Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales in protest...
Alberto Gonzales's Argument Ripped In Half By Law Students
Future American Lawyers To Be Proud Of
Alberto Gonzales spoke before law students at Georgetown Law School
today, justifying illegal, unauthorized surveilance of US citizens
, but during the course of his speech the students in class did something pretty ballsy and brave. They got up from their seats and turned their backs to him
To make matters worse for Gonzales, additional students came into the room, wearing black cowls and carrying a simple banner, written on a sheet
Fortunately for him, it was a brief speech... followed by a panel discussion that basically ripped his argument in half
And, as one of the people on the panel said,
"When you're a law student, they tell you that if you can't argue the law, argue the facts. They also tell you if you can't argue the facts, argue the law
. If you can't argue either, apparently, the solution is to go on a public relations offensive and make it a political issue... to say over and over again "it's lawful"
, and to think that the American people will somehow come to believe this
if we say it often enough.
In light of this, I'm proud of the very civil civil disobedience that was shown here today
for "Freedom Of Speech"
