....for proving my point. Here is the theory of how Democrats don't believe in dissent; And here is the post where Jane Hamsher says, "Democrats should not criticize other Democrats,"
Now, even though I don't believe one whit that Andrew Meyer believes -- There was no reason for him to be arrested and tasered. In a room with Senator John Kerry (D-MA), did the Senator do anything for Andrew Meyer? No. That is why he didn't win in 2004.
Back when I was in SUNY-Stonybrook, I was appointed University Senator. In that position, I represented 10,000 Undergraduate students. The major issue during my term was: Should campus police have guns?
I queried everyone. Students, staff, professors, TA's, RA's and commuters. If the campus police did not have guns, it would take 45 minutes before Suffolk County PD could enter the situation. If the Campus Police did have guns, they can enter the situation. Most people wanted to be protected immediately, so even the most Leftist College Democrat wanted the Campus Police to have guns. The Professors, since they did not live on campus, felt no need to ruin the "ideal" of a peaceful campus.
I made a motion of putting the vote to the floor of the University Senate; And it was punted. The Administration and Professors shut down the debate, even though lives were in balance. Let us not forget, the Long Island Rail Road Shooting happened one county over. Would Campus police have handled this situation differently? The County Police did overreact. But Andrew Meyer still acted like an asshole. Senator Kerry can't protect his own people.

Am I the only one that finds this FREAKIN' HILARIOUS? Is there something wrong with me? Or is it just that college libbys getting Tazed is funny, and add to the "OOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUCCCCHHHH!!!!"ReplyDelete
I can't stop laughing.
It turns out Andrew Meyer is a Ron Paul supporter. But, he still was an asshole, and the cops did overreact.
Wait a second JSF. Half the time you talk about how great those Tamany types were who would thuggishly stomp out the off-message types in the democratic party, but now you take an incident that Kerry or the democratic party had no control over and use it as yet another (bad) example that the big bad democrats are big bad fascists. But if that guy was asking a question about Israel ending the occupation you'd be cheering the cops for tasering him. And do you seriously think that cops in one of the reddest of the red states are democrats? They tasered him for talking about impeaching Bush.ReplyDelete
Nice try and all, but once again you're using logic that would get you laughed out of even a remedial college class. But I guess it's better than the ridiculous attempt to compare the watergate breakin to a blowjob.
Did you not read the part where I condemened the cops for overreacting? As far as being Anti-Israel, as long as that theoretical person promotes a two-state solution, no problem -- again, cops overreacting. If they call for the destruction, death, removal of, then I will side with the police.
Wasen't FL a Blue state in a Red area (as per Election 2000)? or is it a Red State? Please, make up your mind.
Also, I watched the Youtube as well -- He was cut off with "Skull and Bones." I still say let him speak.
