    Story here

    I'm wondering how many votes she thinks she gained with this. The thing I think about is the contrast between the way she's handled this and the way Cheney handled this kind of thing several years ago when he was interrupted by protesters while speaking to Congress. Cheney's response was to point out that what was great about America is that we have the freedom to say what we want. On the other hand, Bachmann tacitly implies that people should not engage in exercising their freedom of speech, and seems scornful for it. Cheney at least respected it, even though I'm sure he wasn't happy over the incident. I guess it's just another piece of the bat-shit crazy Bachmann puzzle.

    They were disrespectful in interrupting her speaking. I don't blame her. All they were there for was to disrupt and try to squelch her.

    So she's correct.

    Get it ACE?

    More proof that you're the liberal hack you deny. She didn't say what your thread title said. She called the people ignorant and disrespectful for interrupting her speech......not that free speech was.

    Preventing someone from talking is not free speech. It is fascism of the worst sort. You get to have your say, I get to have mine. You putting a gag in my throat is not free speech.

    She didn't actually say that free speech is ignorant and disrespectful at all. The OP is a lying hack. IntheMiddle... InTheIdiotZone is more accurate.

    Did she call the TP people who screamed all through town hall meetings so no one could talk to their rep the same names?

    I don't think InTheMiddle has found the middle yet... s/he is still blinding wandering around on the left.

    Tea Party people kept the people from being able to discuss the healthcare bill with their reps by screaming their heads off.

    That was OK though huh?
