This is how far liberalism has sunk in Wisconsin.
I’m someone who doesn’t agree with Sarah Palin on most issues – but why is this good?
This isn’t debate. It’s not answering her arguments. He’s not explaining a difference in policy. It’s yelling. It’s making noise. It’s not discourse. It’s what drunk frat boys do when a song comes on that they don’t like. It’s what people in Detroit do to Charlie Sheen. It’s what kids do before an adult tells them to stop or go on a timeout.
But look at the comments from the liberal blog Political Carnival…
this makes me happy – love these people
What a Beautiful Sound let’s see if FOX shows this or better yet shows this without any anti
No. No! This isn’t a beautiful sound – it’s the sound of idiots. Got that? IDIOTS YELLING.
I would hate this behavior for exactly the same reasons if I saw conservatives doing this to a speaker. So here’s my question…
When HAVE conservatives done this? Do they show up en masse at public rallies to keep Bernie Sanders or Michael Moore from speaking?
UPDATE: A couple of people have said this isn’t new behavior – while the phrase ‘there is nothing new under the sun’ is itself pretty old, I actually believe what we’ve seen recently – and this is an example –IS something new in American politics. A new variant, at least. This is a group that is partially organized by groups with direct connections to the President surrounding and shouting down a political rally. I don’t recall that under Bush or Clinton or Bush or Reagan.
UPDATE VIDEO I was wrong. There was clearly SOME intelligent liberal debate.
