Okay, not really. Shoot 'em with beanbags. What a bunch of disrespectful assholes.

2. I agree, sadly many here do not...
It seems to me that many people here only hate hecklers if they are interrupting people we like.

When Code Pink interrupts a Republican State of the Union for example, or conservatives are shouted down or pie'd on college campuses, well, those things seem to be applauded all too often here.

Heckling is always bad. If you don't like what someone has to say, leave, or politely wait your turn and ask a tough question is time is allotted for it.

38. Is it bad when Karl Rove is heckled because he is a war criminal?
Or John Woo for inventing excuses for torture? Heckling is appropriate sometimes.

3. If you are a public speaker, expect to get heckled. It comes with the job.

6. No it doesn't come with the job.
It is an attempt to suppress free speech. They should expect to be roughly ejected or worse for tampering with the Constitution.

8. Ejecting someone for speaking out is not suppressing free speech?
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 04:47 PM by uppityperson
hahahahahaha

I do not think you understand the Constitution or free speech. It doesn't only work when people are speaking supportively.

11. You have no right to invade someone else's meeting.
Create your own forum to oppose something. That is the Constitution. Invade and you lose any rights.

13. What about a public forum? Open to the public.
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 06:01 PM by uppityperson
No, that is not the Constitution.

You do realize, don't you, that even if you trespass on someone else's property, that you still have some right? Just checking to make sure you know that.

It burns, oh, it burns!

16. The President giving a speech at a campaign rally is not a public "forum".
You have no right to disrupt it. Thank goodness you aren't a judge so we are safe from your opinions.

Campaign rallies are not sponsored by the government.

34. A campaign rally might be open to the public but it is not a public forum
I'm not saying that somebody should go to jail for disrupting a campaign rally but it's not a public forum.

35. I may have the term wrong, meaning open to the public to attend.
that is what I mean. If the term is wrong, go with what I mean (opent to the public) as jargon sometimes escapes me (often)

27. No proof, just insults. Ah, gotcha. Not quite how this forum works.
If you make an assertion, you provide proof or it is just another case of "I play a _____ on the internets".

32. try posting some proof of your assertions rather than just insults and see
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 08:26 PM by uppityperson
Rather than simply posting insults to your unproven assertions.

did you know insults are against Du rules?

24. I was in Chicago at a rally when Bill Clinton was President
and as guy got beat up by the SS for heckling him. I didn't shed a tear. I want to live in a civil society not one of mob rule.

5. First they are egotists
they think people want to hear what they have to say. It gets that little old ding dong bouncing. They just go to these things to do this. Notice how republicans only ammo is to try to disrupt democrats rallies, town hall meetings, these speeches. They have nothing to offer the public but discord, lies and hate. I don't know why some one NOT RUNNING FOR OFFICE doesn't give a speech and ""make that perfectly clear"..shades of you know who.

7. Water balloons. Small, squooshy pies. Anchovy paste in a high powered squirt gun.
Just some suggestions.
I'd just be worried about retaliation from true right wing meatheads who have a "permit to carry."

33. Yep, it they would've just SHOT those hecklers at the Obama speech for Coakley --
the whole thing would turn around! She'd win it if we did that! There's nothing America loves better than to see fellow-citizens shot down like Chinese dissidents. Hell, roll a tank over a couple of these obstreperous gadflies, and she'd win in a landslide!
