If there's anything we've learned in the post 9/11 era, it's this: you can't wait for grave and gathering dangers to sit down and watch a carefully choreographed political event. Those three enemy combatants in Denver who were kicked out of Bush's Town Hall on Social Security even though they didn't cause any sort of disruption? They're getting sympathy from the MSM, but let's call a spade a spade. Progressives? No. Suicide hecklers? Yeah, that's more like it.
Underneath their casual business attire, they were withholding important information about their deadly t-shirt program. (All three were wearing weaponized garb that read " Stop the Lies.") Out in the parking lot, a "No More Blood for Oil" bumpersticker had transformed their "harmless" car into an unmanned rhetorical vehicle. Appease clearly defiant consensus murderers by letting them attend non-partisan, taxpayer-financed forums, and pretty soon you're having a dialogue with opposing viewpoints. Our freedom is too precious to risk. We applaud the anonymous flunky who took decisive action and ejected the potential dissenters before tragedy was allowed to erupt.
