Allen West- “You’re Not Going to Intimidate Me”, Heckler Arrested at Townhall
Shark Tank ^ | April 26, 2011 | Javier Manjarres

Posted on 04/26/2011 10:28:47 PM PDT by Qbert

Immediately after Allen West took the stage at his Town Hall meeting on Tuesday Evening in Fort Lauderdale, several hecklers who were planted in the crowd began to jeer and interrupt his remarks, forcing West to pause several times and then continue once the crowd calmed down.  Police were ultimately forced to removed one of the hecklers from the event. When the hecklers refused to stop their harassment, West stated, “You’re not going to intimidate me.”

Minutes later, a woman sitting behind West’s wife , who had been acting in a disruptive and combative manner by yelling at the Congressman and even harrassing his wife, was asked to leave and was escorted out of the event by Fort Lauderdale Police.  As this unidentified woman was being removed from the proceedings, she continued her tirade and used an expletive to address a police officer, which resulted in the officer arresting the woman for trespassing.

Yes, and they have been given their marching orders to show up at town hall meetings of Republicans and cause trouble. I wonder how many of the Republican politicians will have the courage of Gov. Christie and tell these people how things really are? I wish they would call these slugs moochers, because that is what they are.

Yep

And we'll see a lot of this - they're afraid of him, like they are of Sarah.

They are on a deliberate and coordinated campaign against them. Hopefully, they will continue to be 'escorted' out.

The left in meltdown again. If this is all they got left in their arsenal, they are screwed. This makes them look terrible. If these idiots thought they were going to shut a war hero down from speaking, they are sadly mistaken.

This guys on the major mailing that went out from Move On.org and Obamas team....they're instructed to grind republican candidates on Medicare....so expect them to role with it at townhall meetings as well as followup news clips and videos just as Jotkoff did in this article..

"Eric Jotkoff told The Daily Caller that “Floridians are disappointed that Allen West refused to answer the hard questions from his constituents, who are clearly upset with his voting to end Medicare.”

Glenn Beck was talking a while back about the leftist tactic of using a ‘diamond formation’ - placing operatives in the crowd to maximize effect with minimal numbers, coordinating timing to draw it out. It sounds like that here. Good for West not being cowed by their nonsense.

moveon and the unions have decided to coordinate their efforts to try and recreate the SuCCESSFUL TEA Party townhalls, but they sure don’t act like TEA Party patriots. They are there solely to cause disuption and chaos, period. And West hasn’t been the only Republican on the receiving end of this. They are going after all the freshman Conservatives.

I just read this tonight. It dovetails with your observations on the TP. The Union thug tactics are not working as planed. The TP is still very effective.

You can’t match genuine anger by Americans with a rent a mob or over payed Gov’t workers.

Local police arrested a woman who appears to be former liberal radio network Air America host Nicole Sandler while she was disrupting Rep. Allen West’s Tuesday town hall event in Fort Lauderdale and harassing the Congressman’s wife. According to video obtained by Florida blogger Javier Manjarres, known better online as The Shark Tank, police charged Sandler, who revealed her name on camera, with trespassing after they removed her from the event and she “continued her tirade and used an expletive to address a police officer.”

This woman was a real bush league radio personality before becoming a total nut. I heard this air-check from Des Moines on her pathetic website. She was terribly dull. No wonder Airhead America went under.

That moron got smart with the officer which led to her arrest.

BTW, these jackasses will try to unnerve West. He would benefit from both the Community’s support, and Nation’s support. Any biotch that chooses ‘in their faces’ tactics is worthy of reciprocation.

I don’t buy the whole scale violence thing. Maybe some smatterings here or there, but after seeing them in action in WI, I am far less concerned about any coordinated effort. They appear to be a disorganized lot of incompetents. Just look into what a loser this Radio Personality is that went after West. Disorganized filth.

Last fall, the DE RINOs pulled the same stunt on Christine O’Donnell at a supposedly Conservative meeting. Three guys started an argument over homosexual “marriages”. The initial instigator had been sitting next to officials of the state party.

So it’s not only the left; but ALL anti-Americans.

“It is time to buy a tazer and attend some Town Hall meetings.”

How about this......volunteers with wireless internet connection at the ready. When someone is disruptive, let the candidate pause and challenge the disrupter to make a full disclosure of their identity via an ID. Then the volunteers can check their background on the internet via various websites.

The candidate can then continue an aside debate with a known opponent.

I doubt, after a while, whether there would be much of this happening.

It’s part of the Delphi Technique, used by Alinsky and other community organizing groups. When they’re running the show, they call themselves “facilitators.” They figure out who the troublemakers are in a group (i.e., conservatives or libertarians) and isolate them by saying “reasonable people would agree....” and when you disagree, that means you are obviously not reasonable.

I'd have to agree, however, think about the crowds
counter-heckling against the disingenuous heckler.

The heckler would then be preoccupied with the whole crowd.

I’ve never said this before (because I consider it rude), but since you mentioned “diamond formation”, take a click on my tag line.

Typical liberal mentality...she came to a town hall where she thought there was to be “back and forth”. In other words, liberals believe it is their “right” to interrupt and do and say anything they want, anytime they want.

These are the people we need to confront folks. Great job by Congressman West.
