Truther consequences

One of the sessions at the NRA conventions I attended was “It’s Not The Critic Who Counts”. It was a good session and I’ll post more about it another time.

What was embarrassing at the time was some 9/11 Truther who heckled Ollie North. I thought North handled him well during the session and I figured that would be the end of it.

But after the session the guy came up and harassed him some more. I was busy talking to someone else and didn’t pay much attention.

A couple hours later while a bunch of us were eating lunch Rick noticed someone being marched out the door by a squad of men in blue. Here is our lunch gathering:

Rick and I went outside to check it out. The guy in handcuffs (you can’t see the cuffs in this picture) up against the wall was the Truther.

According to my sources he didn’t stop with harassing North he continued on with Ted Nugent and maybe even some others. The powers that be finally got tired of it. They yanked his pass and escorted him out of the building.

  1. Sucks to be him. I don’t want to open a bottle of conspiracy theory here (or anywhere, really), but it is always good to question.

    From the little I can glean from the meat of this story, my hunch is that the removed party was likely out of line. Regardless of my respect for the “Nuge” (which is high), what would possess one to consider him a 9/11 conspiracy insider?

    Regardless of the “Truther’s” intent, it was considerate of the LE to allow the deposed party to hide his manacles. In a new age of “Free Speech Zones”, it is pretty cool to see a voice of dissent treated with dignity and respect, regardless of the validity of his opinion. Isn’t that what the First Amendment is all about? (I disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. (Yes, even *BARF* Obama)!)

  2. I was in the press office when the Nugent thing was going on. I knew they were escorted out but the credential yanking was a decision from the floor, not the office.

  3. Free speech is one thing. Disrupting a convention is quite another. As is crashing a party, or taking over a campus. No one on the Left has ever seemed to understand the difference. Nor are they for free speech, or freedom of any kind, when it comes to tolerating their opposition.

    Simply disagreeing with them almost always results in you being accused of violating their free speech right. Cases of conservatives being heckled and having vegetables thrown at them during college speaking tours abound.

    The kid looks like a Truther.
