Naturally this is not acceptable behavior.

But it was only heckling.

If this was a left wing anti-globalization protest...there would be riot police, objects thrown and physical injuries.

Tea party participants are still more inherently well behaved than the average "global socialism now" protestor.

When I first read the posting, I somehow knew that Kevin would be the first one to comment on this and attempt to make it some ok by comparing it to other extreme protesters. Neither is ok.

Hello. Long time reader, first time poster.

The sound you just heard was any good PR the Tea Party had being shot in the foot.

These people call themselves patriots? If they love their country so much, why would they treat its inhabitants with such disrespect?

I knew it. Even before I opened comments I knew Kevin would have something totally unsupportable to say.

"But it was only heckling"

Hilarious!

Way to find a way, always, to turn any post here into an anti-liberal rant.

Did everybody read my post?

I said, "...this is not acceptable behavior."

Compared to the disrespect shown by anti-globalization protestors, this is fairly tame by comparison. (while still unacceptable)

So heckling is worse than assault, vandalism, and thug like behavior by anti-globalization protestors?

My point is: if this is the worst tea party behavior one can find...its nothing next to the average socialist protestor gathering against globalization.

Kevin,

the tea partiers dont have to through bricks through coffeeshop windows-most of them are survivalist goons on the side, and they are armed to the teeth with rhetoric,weaponery,CIA,Blackwater, whatever.

So,"inherently."

No

Nate Bodensteiner said...

..bricks through windows is demonstration of one kind...

deadly weapons silently enforcing the "peace?" That is a whole different demonstration. just look at the cops around here, or in N.Y.C.

all I see with lefist protests is a demonstration of desperation.

Mark,

Here you go, Ann Coulter chased out of town...better or worse than the "hecklers"?

Wow!

Left wing free speech oppression is where the focus needs to be.

Canada disgusts me!

This is the oppressive result of the "progressive" movement.

Thank you for judging an entire country on some university students and one columnist. Wouldn't you be mad if I made the same comment, basing it on some other similarly small group of people?

Exactly what Mark has done to people in the Tea Party Movement with his post.
