In the recent Bundy affair out west, many conservatives have had a field day, complaining about the so-called First Amendment zones that the BLM set up, to restrict protesters to certain pre-approved areas. I have seen multiple bloggers complain about the policy, and then cite Obama as the bad guy.

Welcome to the party. As far as I know, it was the Bush administration that started the practice of restricting protesters to certain areas. I had a problem with it then, and I have a problem with it now. If protesters can be restricted to certain areas, then those protesters can be ignored by simply not going near that area.

I don’t think that is the idea behind the First Amendment at all.
