Even Karl Rove, wrong as he is, has a right to be heard

I am not exactly a fan of Karl Rove, but I’m even less a fan of this kind of confrontational “street theater.” This incident illustrates exactly why. Rove was in effect denied the right to speak by those who decided on their own to silence him, and that is unacceptable behavior.

Local CBS reporter Dave Bryan, who filed the above video report, also described what happened in a post to his station’s website.

About 100 fans came out to hear Karl Rove at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills Monday night to discuss his book “Courage and Consequences: My Life As a Conservative In The Fight,” — but the fight wasn’t contained to his book.

Anti-war protesters came out, some rushing the stage, to call Rove a “war criminal” and worse….

One woman, the co-founder of the anti-war group Code Pink, approached him with handcuffs and said she was there to make a citizen’s arrest. Jodie Evans charged him with “outing a CIA agent…you lied to take us to war…” and “totally ruining the country.”

…. Another woman screamed at Rove, “The only comfort I take is that…you’re going to rot in hell.”

Rove, meanwhile, charged that the people shouting him down were an example of the “totalitarianism of the left…they don’t believe in dialog…they don’t believe in courtesy. They don’t believe in first Amendment rights for anyone but themselves.”

Rove was forced to end the book signing and leave. The idiots at Code Pink achieved nothing with this stunt except to elevate Rove’s status as a victim of their own self-righteousness. Their behavior was foolish, it was wrong, and it has no place in American civil discourse.

It would be interesting to hear from such demonstrators why they don’t believe in free and open political speech. Their excuse is likely because the person is so disagreeable to them. Frankly, that’s all the more reason to expose the views to the light of day.

You can’t advocate fo protesting in one breath, and then be against it later on. If the Right wants to protest what they see as eroding freedoms due to the Obama administration, they can’t complain about the same thing being done to them. I think the shouting from both sides is rather infantile. Where was that disdain for impeding free speech during the town halls? If memory serves me correct, the Right were advocating people shout to be heard during the town halls being held by Democratic members of Congress. All of a sudden, it’s supposed to be taboo for the Left to yell during a speech from someone on the Right? Gimme a break!!!! Don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you. Plain and simple…

SC–The Rove/Coulter incidences occurred on private property at events in which they were specifically invited to speak. The townhall protests, and even the incident with the man holding the “I have Parkinson’s” sign a few weeks ago, occurred at events which were structured as protest gatherings. Not an excuse for rude behavior either way, but there is a difference IMO.

Why can’t disagreeing with someone be done with civility? Why does one have to feel like a “shout down” is a victory for their cause. All “shout downs” accomplish is to make the person doing the shouting look at best, very foolish, and at worst, very insane. neither promotes a cause.

I’ll give you Rove’s event on private property, but Coulter’s was scheduled at Univ of Ottawa, which bills itself as Canada’s University. I don’t think that’s a private institution. However, I do understand your opinion.

I see it in general terms as a case of “If you can’t take it, then don’t dish it”. I didn’t consider whether the incidents were on public or private property.

“I’m not familiar with Canadian laws, but in the US, we can protest things.” Canada does have free speech…but HATE speech is illegal. The students at Ottawa were protesting against Coulter’s remarks to a Muslim student when Coulter told the student to “Take a camel!” in response to a question. The regent at the University of Ottawa sent Coulter a letter informing her of the Canadian statute; it was to this effect that the student protest took place…and for safety’s sake, the event was shut down!!

“If someone actually threatened her, then I’m sure the RCMP will handle things. ” The Ottawa Police, along with Coulter’s bodyguards and the University, agreed to shut the event down….if threats had been enacted, it would;ve been handled, IMHO!!

If the disagreement is SOLELY on POLICY, I have no problem with it!! The reason many got on Bush was due to his getting the nation into two wars (off-books!), seeing his cronies get wealthy at the nation’s expense,and believing that he was SELECTED by Daddy’s Supreme Court to be the President. THAT was the source of the initial vitriol….and his policies followed suit!!

Now opponents will say, why not yell at democratic congressmen about health care etc. at town halls. But that’s not the same, cause there are two points, and the results are not in yet. Many people think the President’s, and Congress’ actions will be good for the country. If in 8 years, we find that the administration stole money, fired and attacked whistleblowers, set up programs to line the pockets of their friends and themselves, stood idly by while they allowed their incompetence to ruin the economy, and told lies that cost hundreds of thousands of lives, if these thing prove to be true, then YES it’s OK to CHARGE THEM BOTH IN COURT AND OUT OF COURT.

Given what comes out of Ann Coulter’s mouth in general and what she said to a muslim student at that university, I think Evel Knievel had a safer career. Ann told the muslim student something like “If you don’t have a flying carpet, you can catch a camel.” You see, Ann has this idea that muslims should not be allowed to fly. Unless, Ann said, “They use their flying carpets.”

Ann Coulter’s incendiary rhetoric (well, maybe it is not exactly rhetoric), is not going to make her many friends. But, like Karl Rove, she does manage to get a book sold every now and then.

When liberals act like asses, it isn’t reported/commented on, or even considered odd. Why? Because they do it all the time. When a conservative steps out of line (or even when an old fool like John Lewis says one did without proof) the media goes nuts. Talk about double standard.

Scout: Look at volume AND degree!! When your analogy was pit bulls and poodles….all the noise a poodle makes doesn’t scare anyone…but the noise a pit bull makes scarea one silly!! The left seems to be the poodle..in that they are all noise but FEW bites (didn’t say that they DIDN’T!)….but the right is the pit bull..for look at the hangings and shootings that have been done in modern history to suppress free speech and dissent!!

I’m still more scared about the nut with the GUN rather than the nut with a paint can!!

Correct …………. and the ones on the left are most often to blame by a wide margin.

Left vs. right ……… no contest.

White Supremist vs. Islamic terrorist ……….. no contest.

Nothing like generalities with nothing to back them up.

Going Broke NO NO NO NO

Apparently you did not see it. A muslim girl student stood up during question and answer. The muslim girl student told her she didn’t have a flying carpet to use for travel, (referenced to Coulter’s book) how do you expect me to travel? Coulter says “So, Take a Camel” That’s very insulting. It was cruel.

The sophmore college student said nothing else, she walked out with other students. THAT’S ALL!!

Sadly you are so blind to reality and have it so backwards I can’t help you. Take your next vacation to a Muslim country.

Thanks for the input.

“no contest”

Then let’s see some actual numbers Scout instead of your opinion.

Oh, I just saw the funniest bumper sticker when I was out just now, it read, “Women who behave rarely make history.”

Scout,

“White Supremist vs. Islamic terrorist”

Yeah…both are bottom dwellers intent on subverting another’s rights with violence.

Are you trying to say that Islamic terrorist are leftist?

NO SCOUT. Even on this blog, you’re not allowed to say anything you want. You can’t provoke people with insensitivity and racism and when they bash your head in, call them animals.

Interesting non-scientific poll being done by CBS. The results are really interesting.

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A WHITE SUPREMIST.

“WHITE SUPREMIST” IS AN OXYMORON

Joan @ 1:35:- methinks you don’t look at the news in full!! If you don’t see the protestors during the G-12 conferences…then you’ve missed the extreme left at work. The reason the media gets on conservatives as they do is because of the hypocritical positions they espouse:

1) Family Values – then Mark Sanford, John Ensign, C-Street and Newt Gingrich!
(You’ll talk about John Edwards….but he didn’t divorce his wife while she was sick in the hospital (Newt) or fly to Argentina to see his mistress while telling his wife that he’s “hiking” (Sanford)..or put his mistress on his Senate payroll (Ensign))

2) Anti-Gay — then Larry Craig (enough said)

3) Drug prosecutions for small times dealers – then Rush Limbaugh’s “prescription shopping” for oxycontin…..

Need I say more?? It’s the hypocracy that gets conservatives in trouble!!
