Meg McLain Tells Fox News About Her Arrest for Selling Lemonade

This morning Free Keene blogger Meg McLain was on Fox News, along with Robert Fernandez, to discuss yesterday’s successful Lemonade Freedom Day. Despite being a nationwide event, it appears that there were only three arrests made on Lemonade Freedom Day and all were in Washington, DC. Everywhere else in the country, including Keene, cops used their discretion and ignored the open agorism taking place. Here’s Meg and Robert on Fox and Friends this morning:

Meg wasn’t given much time to discuss the abuse she faced at the hands of the U.S. Capitol Police Department but she did post the unfortunate details to her new blog, MegMclain.com.

UPDATE: Both Robert and Meg presented their views on liberty to the large audience of Fox and Friends. They spoke about good people disobeying bad laws and Robert was even able to mention jury nullification. Here are some quotes from this segment that I first posted on CDEvolution.org:

When you’re shutting down a kids lemonade stand, you’re basically telling them they can’t do anything, they can’t follow their dreams, they can’t set a goal and achieve that goal without getting permission from the government first. I think this is absurd. We’re all individual with an inherent right that we should be able to sell goods and services with other voluntary individuals that want to participate without having any problems and asking permission.

– Robert Fernandez

When the rules are inappropriate, there’s no reason that anybody should ever have to endure what I went through just for selling 10 cent glasses of lemonade.

– Meg McClain

The Fox Host asks Meg what she had to endure, which you can find more on at MegMcLain.com.

Fox Host: Robert, Ultimately what to you want to happen here. What are you hoping to achieve?

The biggest thing that I’d like to achieve here is to get good people to disobey bad laws. Police are human, we’re all individuals, we all make mistakes, so do the police, so do lawmakers. Not all laws are good, some laws are bad and when we have bad laws we need to disobey them.

– Robert Fernandez

Fox Host: Maybe the message here is to just lighten up.

I think we still need to stand up and disobey these types of laws.

Jurors need to be more informed and need to make decisions based on their conscience.

  1. Thanks Meg…I will hoist a lemonade in your honor later today.

    Excellent points made by Robert Fernandez, people should be able to freely transact without having to purchase the "privelege" to do so.. Jurors should laugh at prosecutors that bring cases like this forward.

    I encourage all free people to be peaceful and practice free trade with other consenting free people. A system that purports to "protect" your freedom while insisting at the point of a gun you buy a license to do so is oxymoronic…

  2. Good job meg 😉

  3. thanks jason! 😀

  4. "Basically taunted by the police for five hours" – I've heard this before – until video shows something totally different. I can think of an attention starved woman about a year ago whining on TV how TSA agents manhandled/traumatized and brutalized her, only to see a video later of TSA agents consoling and handing paper towels for the woman to blow her nose in – as they tried to figure out why this one woman out of 10,000 that day decided to try and resist going through a security checkpoint.

  5. Your point has no relevance Matt..

  6. Well, if a Free Keener thinks its okay to bring up past behaviors and transgressions of those they dislike, what makes a Free keener think it doesn't go both ways. Meg, in my opinion, exaggerated her 'mistreatment' by the TSA ; I see no reason why I can't question the voracity of her statement in regard to the Capitol Police. So…relevance. There you go.

  7. The video shows the pertinent facts..arrested for lemonade….thats the point seems fox news thinks thats the point too.

  8. It is completely in character for cops to taunt and try to psych people out while in custody. Also Meg's account was not a one dimensional account, she seemed to honestly differentiate behavior of the individuals involved.

    I have interacted with Meg and am usually able to suss out deceptive people.

  9. She made a incidental reference to the cops at the station ; a reference that depicts the cops in there natural manner

  10. again nitpicky and irrelevant

  11. They weren't really actually busted for "selling lemonade", that was just the actual detail…Smeggums would have been just as arrested as if she'd been selling flowers, tea, bagels, bandanas, or indeed, *SELLING*ANYTHING*…I am so, so so glad that those fine Christian Capitol Police cleared a National temple of the BLIGHT*OF*COMMERCE*…..FREE means FREE…Not even $.10cents a glass lemonade, cheap as that is…And if they had just had a little artsy-fartsy picnicy kinda thang, they coulda given out lemonads gratis…But the bitches always goots to get that *FUCKING*MONEY*…..I just realized what's wrong with all you *FREEWEENIES*…For you, it's all about $MONEY$, because in YOUR minds, $MONEY$ = FREEDOM…To me, that's crap…dirty.money is always dirty.money, and may FREEDOM be always FREE………~tKoK.

  12. But that ballsy blonde DC dick was a nasty ass cunt, huh???…See her camera swatting???…She looked like Anne Coulter on the rag…~tKoK.

  13. What kind of fucked-up shit-for-brains would actually post his headcheese pimpled dickworm ideas on here, and use such goddamm filty language? You sure ain't MY KING, you cocksucker maggotmouth…~tQoK.

  14. Damn Meg is Hot!!!

  15. @David

    Are you people capable of anything other than histrionic bullshit? If your organization takes Fox News as a credible source, than you have larger problems than your Glorious Leader being locked up.

    @meg

    Are you aware that "smeg" is short for "smegma"?

    Smegma (Greek sm?gma, "soap"[1]) is a combination of exfoliated (shed) epithelial cells, transudated skin oils, and moisture. It occurs in both female and male mammalian genitalia.

    Also, tits or gtfo.

  16. The unveiling of the MLK Memorial today pales in comparison to Meg's lemonade stand. To paraphrase Dr. King,

    'As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Lemonade salesman is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating "No Lemonade Sales". No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like lemonade and righteousness like a mighty lemonade stream.

    I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream of lemonade sales..

    I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all lemonade salesmen are created equal."

    I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood, and share a glass of lemonade.

    I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom, an oasis of justice, an oasis of lemonade.

    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their lemonade.

    I have a dream today.

    I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the bitter lemon juice of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers and make lemonade.

    I have a dream today.

    I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall

    taste the lemonade together.

    This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful tasting symphony of lemonade brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day to sell lemonade.

    This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of lemonade, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, lets drink lemonade."

    And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let lemonade flow from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let lemonade flow from the mighty mountains of New York. Let lemonade flow from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

    Let lemonade flow from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

    Let lemonade flow from the curvaceous slopes of California!

    But not only that; let lemonade flow from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

    Let lemonade flow from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

    Let lemonade flow from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let lemonade flow!

    And when this happens, when we allow lemonade to flow, when we let it flow from every village and every haI have a dream today.

    I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

    I have a dream today.

    I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

    This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

    This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."

    And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

    Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

    Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!

    But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

    Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

    Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

    And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"mlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual,

    "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, lemonade is 10 cents a glass!"

  17. @jw

    Um…i dont believe I called fox news a "credible source" though they did get it right in this case. Also histrionics can be used to great effect;smart people know that.

    @jw,

    A classy person knows that "meg" is short for Megan.

    @jw,

    You aren't as smart as you think you are.

    🙂

  18. @"David",

    Why did you write so much stuff?

    🙂

  19. Sorry david-keene, Dr. King did tend to go on and on. If you finish it you can have a cookie.

  20. @David,

    Didn't even bother to look :it was you so i hadn't noticed you were quoting mlk

  21. Not merely quoting, david-keene. I updated the speach to be more relevant to the lemonade oppression of today. Remember when Meg was simply a Mediawhore? Now she is a full fledged Freedom Fighter.

    Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, lemonade is 10 cents a glass!

  22. That was pretty funny David. Thanks for the laugh… 🙂

  23. Sliced up different, yet its still the same absurd anti-freedom garbage coming from you haters:

    "Obey the laws *all of them* because the gooberment has some sort of "legitimacy". What kind you say? Well, simply because they're in power, I worship power, and that should be good enough for you because that is good enough for me. I'm better than you are, you know."

    Every time you sad people post anything, this is what people actually see from you.

  24. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their lemonade.

    I have a dream today.

    Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, lemonade is 10 cents a glass!

    At least the lemonade takes my mind off the beers on the wall.

    I'm glad you got a chuckle, brad. The real joke is Meg.

    How many we got left brad?

  25. @David,

    Your post just show that you don't know what the protests are about.

    So your critiques are toward something that isn't happening

  26. Shutup Meg.

    david-keene, Who let you back on the Blog?

  27. @Peter Griffin,

    your mother.

  28. ooooooo…. Snappy comeback david! LOSER!!

  29. david-Keene, your critiques are toward something that isn’t happening.

    Your mother.

  30. Great Job Meg. This time you were clever enough to spin your story in a manner that's not likely to find the video of the truth showing up on National television….. Handcuffed to a wall and taunted for five hours? PLEASE……..

  31. Meg may be short for Meagan, but "smeg" is still short for "smegma"…….

  32. Bill on Tue, 23rd Aug 2011 12:01 am – Belched forth the usual vile trash against freedom:

    Great Job Meg. This time you were clever enough to spin your story in a manner that’s not likely to find the video of the truth showing up on National television….. Handcuffed to a wall and taunted for five hours? PLEASE……..

    See what I mean?

    "Blah blah – follow the law even if it sucks. Blah blah, I'm better than you. Blah blah, they are in power, worship them because I think that everyone should worship power, wrong or right."

    Don't like what I have to say? Good, then stop being a lick-spittle toady, cheerleader for tyrants & an enemy of freedom.

  33. I can understand you eunuchs continuing to taunt Meg over her missing papers.

    You aspire to be just like your cowardly armor-plated masters.

    Yeah, it takes at least a dozen fat blue line thugs to work up the courage to insult a chained up lady.

  34. Chaz, you accuse me of being a "Liberty Hater". Hater of Liberty, NO. Hater of Liars, YES (on BOTH sides). Say what you want (I'm sure you will find a way to spin this too), you don't know me.

    "Smeg" has already been proven to be a bald faced liar. I remind you of the TSA incident, where she claimed to have been publicly brutalized. Video of the incident showed that none of her claims were true. That video showed her being consoled, not brutalized. The camera works both ways Smeggy. Given your track record. If you claim, it and I can't see it, it didn't happen. Smeg was never chained to a wall OR taunted (for 5 min OR 5 hrs).

  35. freestaters = attention-hungry goofballs

  36. @peter Griffin,

    thanks 🙂

  37. Bill,

    You *claim to* be a person that hates the hypocrisy (on both sides, according to you) yet I never see you taking anyone but the government's side.

    If you were honest (which you never seem to let go on Meg about) you'd tell us all you worship power (yes you do) & somehow very strangely think that you are better than us.

    Please feel free to not preach to anyone here about "honesty". It is very insulting coming from the likes of you while it literally reeks of your vile hypocrisy.

    Keep in mind for future reference that whenever Meg or any liberty activist puts their most prized possession of freedom on the line for not just themselves but even for someone such as you…the word you need to come up with is "thanks".

  38. This is "Bill" : "I know your fighting and exposing government over reaching and, who knows, you may achieve some things BUT ! you told a LIE! and ALL THE GOVERNMENT STUFF THAT YOUR FIGHTING AGAINST FALLS AWAY IN LIGHT OF LIE TELLING!

    Again this is "Bill" :"I know people going to jail for lemonade, people are getting money taken from them through taxes for stupid wars, and I know your fighting against that but you TOLD A LIE and THAT'S THE IMPORTANT THING." LOL……………….little mix up of priorities?, "Bill"

    Glad you are not the boss bil because if you WERE no one could tell a ,you'd make SURE of that, but wars and intrusive money extracting government etc…lol

    HEY BILL MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO OUT AND GATHER UP SOME OF YOUR FRIENDS AND DO A PROTEST AGAINST LIE TELLING…seeing as to you that is the real evil

  39. @Bill,

    Meg is also fighting for YOUR FREEDOM.

    wtf are are you fucking doing ?

    besides being a fucking sniper on here?

    fucking cowardly fool.

    if you had half the cajones meg has you might be able to do something besides snipe on a website

  40. "Good heavens Miss Sakamoto – you're beautiful!"

    I –

    I don't believe it!

    There she goes again!

    She's tidied up, and I can't find anything!

    All my tubes and wires

    And careful notes

    And antiquated notions

    But! – it's poetry in motion

    And when she turned her eyes to me

    As deep as any ocean

    As sweet as any harmony

  41. Sorry – selling lemonade on the National Mall, that was advertised with the desire to be arrested for it, is not fighting for my freedom – so "no thanks". Like all freestaters, Meg chose to do something that was 'safe' – meaning a cite and release, and she knows full well that this entire debacle will be dismissed – and it won't be because the "government" knows it was wrong…it is because it just doesn't matter – they got their job done…they removed them – and now onto the next day of the usual Washington DC protests. Funny the news of the day yesterday was a San Diego police officer getting shot in the throat after trying to subdue a psychopath who killed his entire family. So lets see…..Meg McLain pretending she is oppressed for a lemonade stand, or a group of people putting themselves in harms way to keep others safe. Meg = FAIL.

  42. The day I'll think Meg or anyone else for that matter has balls, is the day she takes a police cruiser on vacation – since she paid for it and all. Or decides to redecorate the interior of the oval office. Meg doesn't even really work – she has her little side biz with "liberty flair" which is more an arts and crafts hobby, but I doubt very very highly that she claims it on her taxes, if she even files taxes. And more than likely – the government doesn't even give a shit.

  43. your so full of bull Matt ; you'd so lose in a real debate.

  44. Matt,

    your last submission has more holes than a piece of Swiss cheese

  45. Shouldn't it be 'peace of Swiss cheese', david-keene?

  46. Kudos to Meg's stylist.

  47. Chaz,

    You say I need to come up with the words "Thank You". OK, Thank You……. for continually showing what a bunch of idiots you are. I do not worship power. I did not ever ask Smeg to do anything for me. If anything is being done on my behalf, I would ask that they do it in the full light of honesty. Ms. Smegma has an unfortunate record of dishonesty which = lack of credibility.

    Well stated Matt

    david-keene, wash your filthy mouth out with soap, go to your room and let the grownups talk!

  48. @David,

    Look in a dictionary.

  49. @bill,

    why are you in love with me?

  50. @Matt,

    I'm holding out hope that some day you have a grasp of what's going on.

    And make some good points in that regard.

    🙂
