Right after Choi spoke while chained to the White House fence today...

The police closed Lafayette Park and kicked the media out of the park...

Says John at Americablog:

After the vets had been at the fence for around half hour or so, suddenly the police started to freak out. Out of nowhere, they closed Lafayette Park - something none of us, including the mainstream media assembled there - had ever seen. The police literally ordered the press to leave, and pushed all us back halfway to the end of the park, telling us the park was closed.

It was a who's who of the mainstream media that the White House security decided to take on. Not very pretty, and the reporters were pissed. Here's video of one reporter calling White House gay liaison Brian Bond to complain. They were telling the police that they were being intentionally stopped from covering the story. And they were. It was interesting that the White House so freaked out this time around, when there were only six people on the fence, and the crowd was mostly tourists. Last time, there were 200 raucous demonstrators watching and the police weren't worried at all. It seems GetEqual got the White House's attention.

This is getting to them. Keep it up, GetEQUAL.
