All She Wants to Do is Dance! April 22, 2008

Filed under: DC — mallori612 @ 6:57 pm

The libertarians are furious!  On Saturday night, about 20 dorks gathered around the Jefferson Memorial to take part in a silent rave in celebration of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday.  Head phones on, they started dancing around the memorial, just doing their thing.  Then, the police came and arrested one of them, quelling the dancing.  

I don’t get it.  Sure, it’s weird and silly, but they certainly weren’t doing anything wrong.  The Memorial is open 24 hours a day, and they were just dancing silently.  Of course the irony is that they were celebrating Jefferson, the most anti-authoritarian of the Founding Fathers, whose ideas were inspired by state abuse of personal liberty.
