"A third of my generation is dead because of politicians like Giuliani." -- Steven Pokorny, age 28, at Giuliani during meeting in Miami, Sunday, Jan. 13
MIAMI, Jan. 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- Rudy Giuliani was rattled by pro-life advocates and canceled his speech at his first bus-tour event Sunday in Miami. Activists have planned confrontations with Rudy for every stop of his Florida bus tour. Photos available online.
On Sunday, Jan. 13, at approximately 12:15 PM, pro-life activists were in the crowd at The Green Street Cafe (located at 3110 Commodor Plaza, Coconut Grove Florida, just outside Miami) waiting for Giuliani to begin his Florida Bus Tour.
When Rudy Giuliani arrived, Joseph Landry (age 26) was within 5 feet of the candidate, and began yelling: You are a baby killer! You are a baby killer! Florida is pro-life! Rudy wants public funding for abortion!" See news report. Law enforcement officials immediately escorted Mr. Landry from the area, while Mr. Landry continued his monologue.
Within Minutes, Steven Pokorny, age 28, stood to his feet and cried out, "A third of my generation is dead because of politicians like Giuliani! Giuliani wants to kill children and have you pay for it!" Law enforcement did not stop Mr. Pokorny.
At that point, Giuliani left the building, without addressing the crowd.
Mr. Pokorny was able to follow Mr. Giuliani for more than a minute, yelling out about Rudy's pro-choice, pro-homosexual agenda. Again, Mr. Pokorny was not interrupted by police.
Giuliani officials had no idea how many pro-lifers were in the crowd, and how many more times Giuliani would be confronted. This might explain why Mr. Giuliani did not make any remarks - and left the meeting without addressing supporters.
Pro-lifers have scheduled confrontations with Rudy on every stop of his Florida Bus tour.
Video footage of the confrontations with Rudy is available upon request.
Pro-abortion RG is toast.
Herassing Giuliani like this is not going to save a single fetus. Talk about stupid.
Harassing that is...
“It’s time for Rooty Toot to do the right thing and get out of the race.”
And pro-abortion-and-gay-rights Romney also .....
Which conveniently coincided with his decision to run for president.
Why should we trust politicians who make politically expedient promises?
In 1980, GHWB spend months calling Reagan's tax cut proposals "voodoo economics." Then he had eight years to see how effective Reagan's policies were. So in 1988, when running for president, he promised, "Read my lips: no new taxes." Then a couple years later he said it was necessary to raise taxes.
We should not trust a person with a lifelong record of liberalism simply because they say what they think we want to hear during a political campaign.
“You are a baby killer! You are a baby killer! Florida is pro-life! Rudy wants public funding for abortion!”
“A third of my generation is dead because of politicians like Giuliani! Giuliani wants to kill children and have you pay for it!”
There has to be a better way of spreading the message besides acting like a total retard.
You didn’t answer my question, so you must be okay with protesters interrupting rallies. Do you support Code Pink?
So, you consider it “retarded” to tell the truth?
I had no idea that First Amendment rights were suspended at rallies.
Giuliani did not perform abortions, nor did he make abortion legal, nor did he force women to have abortions, nor did he drive women to the abortion clinic, nor did he make those women have sex with men they didnt want to have children with.
“You are wrong. Romney had taken a pro life position. “
Romney has a born-again “pro-life” position that started just when his campaign for president started...Whenever the need occurs he will backslide...
Pomney is the type of liberal who will be all things to all voters...whatever you want him to be...whatever you want his position to be for the time it takes to secure your vote...
He is as genuine as a bottle blondes hair color...
I hope Rudy continues to say what he really believes so people can either disregard it, or accept it.
I don’t like that he got harrassed so much, but maybe he was in the wrong church at the time. Maybe next time, he’ll get better directions.
Congratulations to those good Christian citizens who stood up for what they believe so strongly. Being impolite, however, risks their being marginalized, whether appropriately, or not.
Do you not support the Bill of Rights (or the rest of the Constitution for that matter)?
There was none. Indeed, if the scene was taped, it will be used against the Republican nominee -- regardless of his stance on abortion.
We deplore the behavior shown toward conservative speakers on college campuses. This is no different. Certainly, it's nothing to celebrate.
That’s it...go after this pretender. Get the hell out of this race, Rudy.
Giuliani on public funding of abortion
Woo hoo!! Way to go, Florida!! FReep Rudy!!
