Sure, is it cool to have mobs of people at your house shouting you or you family down because who you support?
How about if they don't like your yard sign, is it cool for them to shout you down as you pull into your house.
If so be glad for the most part the right doesn't show up enmasse wearing the equivalent of vagina hats.
They are certainly degrees of acceptable behavior, I think that's what some posters are trying to explain, but I think you get that.
A lot of fear here. I am not sure how somebody shouts you down from driving. And people are allowed to protest. We even have an amendment about it. The first one, in fact. Sorry that you don't like the implications of that one.
But there was quite a bit of consternation about individuals approaching other individuals at restaurants last year to insult them. That is exactly what happened here. Outrage from the right isn't really too strong of a word. I see much less outrage out of the same folks here.
I'd like to meet the person that has the time and persuasiveness to organize a "shout down" protest over a random person's yard sign.
Now that is funny, I have a problem with his older brother because his brilliant HVCC put thousands and thousands of appraisers out of business while sitting on the board of the AMC that benefited from said HVCC. Under the ridiculous guise of "protecting the public". More like protecting his own and his buddie's interests. Sounds familiar these days, doesn't it?
Chris was out of line on this Fredo thing, he has to keep it together when cameras are around, he has to know better.
Boy you're mincing words today.
They are camped outside your house and surround you when you get out of your car, or when your kids pull up. Which the I don't think the 1rst gives you the right to accost people just because you don't like their political view points, the left seems too use it as a tool to beat down counter viewpoints IMHO. Some on the left seem to love the 1rst until your don't agree with them.
No fear just watching what's on the MSM man. People getting assaulted for wearing a damn hat for one.
I don't put out yard signs anymore, when Mitt ran I had someone decide to drive 15 feet up into my yard to run it over, and that was in an upper middle class neighborhood off the beaten path. The Mrs. talked me out of setting up a nice spiked tire trap for the punk.
I'd rather not get into a confrontation with some asshat thank you.
Actually, it does. If you are in a public area, people are allowed to walk up to you and tell you something, as long as it isn't a threat of violence or some other illegal activity. Pretty much the core purpose of the 1st Amendment.
Assaulting a person is a different thing. However, it is interesting that your fear arises from the people who were assaulted for the hat and not the media members assaulted by now members of Congress or the WalMart patrons that were shot because they were viewed as invaders, as stated by the President. Or the people in a Synagogue that were shot because of Replacement Theory, which is being spread by another member of Congress as well as several major right-wing media figures.
And that is against the law. Big difference between somebody doing something completely within the law (which includes insulting you in a public place) and breaking the law.
Yeah, you actually definitely have the right to "accost" people non-violently (and provided they aren't on private property or in violation of a relevant law) just because you don't like their political views, that's your 1st amendment freedom baby. You wear your Trump hat in public and get called a fascist, that's freedom at work. Ain't it beautiful?
That's a bad look for Cuomo.
He's been a public figure long enough to know he should just shut his yap and move on. Dropping F bomb after F bomb isn't the answer.
YOU had to straighten my brother out?!
I agree and believe the young men were cowards for baiting him in public. Wouldn't bother me one bit if they had their asses kicked.
These young guys wouldn't have looked so bad if they would have replied "I have zero interest in suing you. I'm sorry if I offended you Fredo".
Cuomo is a clown. I cannot believe he is employed... even if it is CNN.
Sounded like alcohol fueled courage to me.
Or steroids....I heard he's a fitness nut.
Calling someone Pocahontas is OK. Telling supporters you will pay for their lawyers if they beat someone is a reason to vote for someone for president. Or remain silent about it. Being called an epithet and blowing your cork is wrong if you are a commentator on CNN.
I guess Tucker Carlson already lost one of those bouts.
Show us something that would indicate that it’s well known.
It was more than that. He threatened bodily harm to the other dude. The surprising thing is CNN's response was that they were 100% behind their ratings generator without any qualification like "this network doesn't generally condone throwing people down the stairs". This is like straight out of Ybor City on 2 for 1 shots night, not the actions of some dude that supposed to be credibly informing us about the political world.
Actually, Cuomo is a beast at 6’3” and a muscular 240 pounds. He’s also a damn good journalist.
He's not a journalist, he's a talking head. He isn't bad TBH, but his I'm such a badass routine and telling everyone he has the #1 show on CNN 10 times an hour is off putting. Dude has insecurity issues.
