MSNBC says Sandy Hook father was “heckled”

A more reasonable interpretation is that they were responding to a question he asked… twice.

  1. R.D. Walker says:

    I feel great sympathy for this man. I understand his need to “do something”. He shouldn’t let his son’s death be the pretext for the government to further restrict the rights of tens of millions of people who have done nothing wrong and have great sympathy for him, however. That would just compound the tragedy.

      I also feel great sympathy for this man, I cannot begin to understand the pain he is in. But to ask that question and then question that no one can answer, because out of respect they initially remained silent, and then for the board to demand silence as he questioned how no one could answer to the question is absurd. They did not heckle him, rather I heard a quiet crowd react to his repeated questioning.

  3. Uke says:

    The man asked a question which was at first deemed to be rhetorical. Hence the silence from the crowd. He then essentially goaded the respectful, silent crowd by “demonstrating” how their respectful silence should be construed as consent to his point.

    Understandably the crowd, seeing that a response was seemingly expected of them, objected.

    My sympathy for a grieving parent does not lie mutually exclusive to the defense of my rights. I’m sorry, but I cannot allow a man–grief-stricken or not–to be an unopposed accessory to a narrative which might enslave my descendants.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      If they had “maintained a respectful silence”, MSNBC would have reported that the father of a Sandy Hook victim had silenced his critics with his absolute moral authority.

    Yeah, this guy is in a world of hurt and it’s only going to get worse for quite some time. I feel for him in the depths of my soul. He is in an emotional hell right now. My prayers for him & the others.

    The crowd was very respectful. The turds on MSDNC just need something to use to dehumanize the opposition. They are mindless, soulless cretins.

  5. Greg B says:

    I have no kids, so I can’t even possibly imagine what this man is going through.
    However, a-whores like Morgan are rapidly pushing my
    “give a damn” meter to the breaking point.

  6. Greg says:

    He asked and he received. Sympathy.

    But, more to the point, he should have been asking the question why was there not armed guards (or school officials) or other measures to safeguard (all public places) our kids, family, and friends.

    Ultimately, lost on him (I am sympathetic big time), the gun did not kill his Son or the others. A fucken mentally ill physco did.

  7. xenicalman says:

    God bless his man. His anguish was palpable, real and profound.
    How dare MSNBC exploit his grief.

    Lying is all MSNBC has to promote Obama’s agenda.
