Free Speech for Me But Not for Thee.

We’ve known this was the mantra of the left wing for a long time, and we’ve had many instances where moonbat nutjobs have interfered and even assaulted our folks who have attempted to document their antics.

The Town Hall for NY State Senator Tom Duane is a case in point.

The Red Squirrel managed to gain entry (even though the event was advertised only to the far left groups that support all the socialist causes).  She sat in the second row right next to their own photographer.  As soon as she brought her camera out and held it up, one of the moonbats assaulted her.  Not once, but twice!

She writes:

Sat in the second row beside their cameraman. I was quiet….but, I was punched by one lout hard (twice) going on a third telling me to put my camera down.  (Take note: I had been very careful not to reveal camera until St. Sen. Duane was on the floor)  After all, it’s not like I didn’t expect to be told NO First Amendment rights for Repubs, and the theatre personnel kept trying to tell me there were no cameras allowed (like I’d fall for that one.)  Hello?!!! this is a Town Hall …a Public Meeting!  So I kept up with the mantra:

publicmeetingpublicmeetingpublicmeeting!

Since I didn’t cave, the theatre personnel walked away (I was not being QUIET regarding my harassment). But whoever Punchinello was, this guy remained irate that I was filming and said he would punch me again if I lifted my camera up one more time. When I told him to LAY off me. He finally gave up, shut up and sat quietly in his seat. (that was a first)

Congressman Weiner knows how to avoid his constituents. The advertisement for his Town Hall meeting in Brooklyn had the wrong date!  So if you weren’t already aware of the correct time and place you would have arrived a day late!

Weiner did his dog and pony show, which basically consisted of seeing one slide and having to listen to him drone on for about an hour before he would read any preselected questions.

His narcissistic prancing about in front of the audience while retaining almost total control of the microphone grew weary for some attendees and they left before the audience demanded that he answer some spontaneous questions.

Weiner read the definition of ‘socialism’ to debunk claims that the actions of this administration were socialist, but got upset when asked (and was unable) to give the definition of fascism.  Here’s a little help, Congressman:

A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.

Excepting the nationalism, which this administration instead exhibits as belligerent anti-nationalism, this definition fits to a T.

This nurse asked a great question about healthcare workers being forced to take vacines for the H1N1 (swine flu) virus.  He didn’t really answer her.

Those who left early missed the moment when Weiner went full blown moonbat!

He pranced about the auditorium, like a petulant child, shouting that Bush was the worst president ever!

And that we should shut up because they WON the election!

A thousand Long Islanders turned out to protest nationalized healthcare!
