Rightwing Shouters Condemn Town Hall Protesters
Yes, the rightwing talking heads are basically full of shit. But when you least expect it, they up and say something sensible. WTF???
Bill O’Reilly had this to say about these rowdy protesters who keep disrupting these town hall meetings:
“He wanted to disrupt the forum. And to me, I think he should be prosecuted...Look, the guy goes in there. He's totally inappropriate in every way…There isn't one appropriate thing the man did. He wants to disrupt the forum. Security has an obligation not to allow the forum to be disrupted.”
You Go Bill.
Sean Hannity said: “This guy disrupted the event. He disturbed the peace.”
You tell ‘em Sean.
Glenn Beck also had some choice words for those loudmouth troublemakers — I don’t have an exact quote.
Maybe it’s just the “broken clock is right twice a day” syndrome. But let’s give these guys credit for being impartial, for once, and calling things as they see them. Maybe there really is some common ground, and someday we can —
OOPS!!! My bad. Upon closer examination, the Three Stooges WEREN'T criticizing the recent town hall protesters. They were condemning that lone demonstrator who interrupted a John Kerry speech in September 2007. You remember — “Don’t Taze Me Bro.”
Nevermind. Well, that’s totally different, isn’t it.
So let me get this straight now. If a large group is shouting and drowning out a speech and yelling out threats, it’s just hunky dory. Remember, democracy is messy and disorderly. But when a person is by himself and his only “crime” is continuing to talk after security guards have told him to stop talking — Taze that motherfucker!
OK, I’ve got it now.
