No Oscar for Glenn Morris

The misshapen scofflaws at the Ward Churchill Solidarity Network whine about the verdicts against the Columbus Day protesters:

During the first trial of the 2007 Transform Columbus Day protesters, the judge refused to allow the defenders to talk about previous Columbus Day Parades, and cut short their explanations concerning their motivations and their arguments under international law. It was, therefore, almost impossible for them to explain to the jury why they believed it necessary to protest Denver’s annual celebration of Columbus’ legacy of slavery and genocide.
In other words, this time they couldn't grandstand or bring up irrelevancies. How horrible.

And of course, they weren't just protesting, they were preventing others from exercising their own First Amendment rights, which is why the jury convicted.
