1. I wonder what part of Ireland he is from.

No info on him on the internet, so this is his only claim to infamy. I predict his boss, Tucker will have to apologize before long.

Polls show that a majority of Americans favor what the President has done. All he has done is help the President and Romney will tarred with his bigotry as he tries to get the minority vote.

Send him a message. I'm sure he's getting tons of tweets today.

12. I was curious too.

I was curious too for some reason.

Munro is a Scottish name but the wiki article is interesting.

Peace

7. I believe you've missed the point.


The heckler that interrupted President Obama because he was mad about Obama allowing immigrants/illegals obtain jobs via the Dream Act executive order.

Neil Munro himself was not born in the USA.

I was only pointing out that he was born in Ireland and not in the USA.

9. I'm not seeing the point at all.

What difference does it make that he's an immigrant from Ireland? He went through the legal process to become an American citizen, ergo he's an American with the same rights and privileges as any other.

13. The 'legal process' that he used for citizenship is often a sham and it is denied to other minority

groups, so this full of himself jerk can kiss my gay ass. He took advantage of immigration law and yet he freaks out over changes to the same body of law that will benefit others, and not a few of those others are Irish, as we all know. The guy is a self important, bigoted, rude piece of shit.

19. That is correct. He is content that his own wee group gets in the gate and he cares not that

others are denied that same right, and when others get allowed in the gate for being the progeny of immigrant parents, he finds that appalling as well. See he wants HIS family respected and no one else's which is typical of the sort of gas bag that would interrupt a head of state.

14. The problem is he is a hypocrite. It's not where he came from originally, it's

they hypocrisy of someone who benefited from our Immigration laws, now wanting to shut the doors on other immigrants. There are lots of immigrants here from Ireland, but they are not disrespecting the POTUS and asking him why he is allowing foreigners into the country, in fact, this idiot is an embarrassment to his country of origin who are no longer responsible for him or I have a feeling they would apologize for him, and to this country who maybe needs to scrutinize more efficiently those they grant citizenship to. We have enough home-grown bigots in this country, no need to import any more.

10. I don't friend.

I was just curious if he was an Ulster Scott or Irish Irish. I know things like that can be complicated sort of like the North and South here. But it appears to me he is a political operative or agitator. Most real reporters might push it a bit but don't bite the hand that answers the questions.

Peace.. and Feuk da Queen..

28. And ALL real reporters are holding devices to take notes. His hands were in his pockets

clearly showing he wasn't there to report. He was there to agitate and heckle.

And there is a facility on a large Carribean island, highly favored by rethugs, where he is welcome to spend some down time.

21. But don't you get it!??!

 

This is unprecedented. An American citizen was *rude* if you can believe it, to a sitting president.

That has never happened before and totally justifies overturning all our laws to make sure it never happens again.

Why no one ever said anything mean to any previous president ever. This is clear proof of a race-based civil war on the horizon and we need to stop it.

/do I even need the sarcasm tag?

25. Precedent, Shmecedent! Citizenship revocation is enshrined in US law.

I'm not suggesting that this guy deserves revocation for being an annoying, cloying, rude and crude asshole, but there is no "precedent" involved in taking away the citizenship of a naturalized individual. If you are not "natural born" and you screw up, the government can and will take away your citizenship and kick your ass to the curb.

20. The point here is that this asshole went to the White House intending to dis respect our president.

This is the tactic used by the radical tea bagger jackass terrorists that we have and will see forever.
That this particular person is a hypocrite does not matter. Rethugism , rushpublicanism is a mental disorder.
They are all sociopaths. They do not accept logic, they do not accept science. They are deeply disturbed and angry people. Ideological and absurd. They cannot be reasoned with . They are dangerous and they are use terror tactics such as threats, intimidation and violence.
This was a violent act committed in our most respected institution. They have no respect for the rule of law. No respect for Americans . They commonly sent goon squads to disrupt public forums. To disrupt political events. Where are the riot police when the teabaggers gather to disrupt and cause disturbance. Had this been an occupy protester, he would have been arrested.

23. exactly

without a doubt--tazered and pepper-sprayed, too.

the fact that they allow tea bag terrorists to scurry about free and to disrespect the Office of the Presidency is abhorrent.

Not only was he went there with the intention of disrespecting the President, he was sent there with the blessing of tucker carlson to do this.

I truly want to see consequences publicly administered to daily caller and to this asshole--I want us all to know just how things will proceed from here on out with regards to them.

and welcome to DU!
