They've Come for the First...

I saw this on /pol/ linked to RT, but after reviewing the bill's text myself, every word of the article is true.
See this to see for yourself: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112hr347eas/pdf/BILLS-112hr347eas.pdf

They're taking away our right to peacefully assemble. The House and Senate are finalizing the remedial version to send to Obama. They silently took the 6th with NDAA 2012, and now they've come for the most important aspect of our country - the ability to protest our government. In essence, if you assemble in protest anywhere near *anybody* protected by the Secret Service, you can be fined and imprisoned for 10 years for breaking Federal Law. Want to protest an event Obama is present at? TOO BAD. Want to protest one of the candidates for the GOP who has been granted Secret Service protection? TOO BAD. Want to protest near presidents of foreign nations (Say... the G8 protests coming up?) TOO BAD. It will also be a federal offense to protest near any event Congress deems Nationally Significant (This title was created under Clinton and has included about 3 or 4 dozen events, including States of the Union, Innaugurations, Party Conventions, Super Bowls, etc)

Say goodbye to the first. I'm sure the rest are soon to follow...
