“I AM MAD AS HELL AND I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE!”
If you have not seen this yet, you should.
Every American should see this.
I was so pissed off I felt physically ill while watching it.
Then I felt worse as I watched the public reaction to what I thought was an obvious and disgusting violation of a young citizen’s right to free speech and to redress his grievances with his government.
At the University of Florida, a 21-year-old student, Andrew Meyer, was tasered into silence for asking John Kerry controversial questions at a public forum.
Let me get this straight.
It is a public forum, at a public university, specifically for the purpose of letting the public ask questions of an elected public official.
Yes, the kid is acting like a bit of a jerk while he is asking his questions, but being a jerk is not a crime in itself.
If it were, Bill O'Reilly and Glen Beck would have been tased into silence long ago and Ann Coulter would be court-ordered to wear a shock collar around her neck 24/7… and Barbara Streisand would get to keep the remote. …But I digress.
You can see at the beginning of the video that everyone is just standing around calmly while John Kerry is speaking. There is no disturbance or commotion and everyone is focused on John Kerry. He finishes speaking, looks up, points directly at this kid and says, "You have a question?” giving this kid the floor.
