Posted on 08/03/2012 4:50:38 PM PDT by Kaslin
RUSH: Here's Allison in Lakeville, Minnesota, I'm glad you waited. Welcome to Open Line Friday.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It's so good to be on your program today calling from beautiful Lakeville, Minnesota. And I'm calling because I am a conservative Christian stay-at-home mom who believes in liberty and freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Three nights ago I had a gentleman come knocking at my door wanting me to sign a petition that would be against the voter amendment which will appear on Minnesota ballots in November that defines marriage as one man and one woman and then also the voter ID. And when I told him that I could not sign that petition because I, as a Christian, believe in one man and one woman as the definition of marriage, this young man literally went berserk. He flipped out and got so angry to the point where, even his countenance, I felt like I was just looking at a very evil person. And then he started accusing me that I was for the suppression of women and just going way off the wall. It was profound.
RUSH: What? What? How in the world is that --
CALLER: And then I came back to him and said, "You know, I do support your right and your liberty to express your viewpoint. And then I also have my viewpoint." And then he really went off the wall and started yelling and screaming and shouting and waving his arms. I started to fear for my safety, and I told him promptly that I was gonna have to end this conversation. And I'll be really honest, Rush. I mean, I'm a former school teacher, and I can spot a bully a mile away, and here this man was right at my doorstep and trying --
RUSH: You didn't let him in, did you?
CALLER: I did not let him in.
RUSH: So you had this guy freaking out on the front door, outside the front door. Did you call the cops?
CALLER: I did.
RUSH: You know what you shoulda done, you should have offered him a Chick-fil-A card or something.
RUSH: Look, they're gonna be back. They're gonna be back because you are now targeted. I would go to my computer and I would make up some fake Chick-fil-A gift cards and the next time somebody shows up, hand him one of those.
CALLER: Yes, because obviously we want to be offering hospitality. I'm all about hospitality, all about showing kindness to our neighbors and to anyone who would come to my doorstep. But this man, it was really kind of Orwellian. You know, my daughter read 1984 for school this last year, and I stand and look at what's happening at Chick-fil-A and now it's come to my front door.
RUSH: There really wasn't a whole lot of tolerance with this guy, was there?
CALLER: There was no tolerance.
RUSH: This guy runs around claiming that people like him, they're the ones who are diverse and they're the ones that have all the tolerance, and so forth. You didn't see it his way, you became an immediate enemy. I think what you saw is becoming more and more common, as typical liberal behavior. It may have been unique to you, but this is how these people are operating. They are bullies. They find the right people, they'll try these kind of intimidation tactics, try to scare you. Whether it's door-to-door, marching in the street, or what have you. That's exactly who they are. But I'm glad you're okay. That could have gone in a bad way. I'm glad you held your composure. Thanks, Allison.
btw, just wanna say thanks for all your faithful Rush posting.
I really hoping one of these people shows up at my door.
While this guy obviously flipped out, going door-to-door is extremely stressful in the best of circumstances.
I remember one very frustrated man, who happened to be a preacher, just going door-to-door to let people know his nearby church would be having services for the first time the next Sunday.
He was very grateful that I answered the door at all, because nobody else on the block had, so he assumed that everyone was terribly hostile or something. I explained the truth, that most of the people on the block were *very* elderly, and at the “late hour” of 8pm in Summer (still twilight), most of them were probably already in bed.
If they came to my door I would hand them a bottle of Midol and tell them to get lost. Then I would call the police and tell them the perps were attempting to steal my sons pet gerbil.
Marriage, a Holy Sacrament is a totally Biblical thing, sanctioned by Jesus Christ. It shouldn’t be dragged through the mud by sodomites. If they want to join hands (or other body parts) in some sort of UNION... so be it. Let them call it a “UNION” instead of a marriage... that would lend credence to it... buggery and thuggery. Why Muslims are allowed to call trheir UNIONS by the name of marriage is beyond me... as it amounts to nothing but sexist slavery.
I’m keeping a videocam by the door for such an event.
“I really hoping one of these people shows up at my door.”
Oh! Me too! I’m a retired musician, and have several “Gay” friends,,,,, and none of them are jerks! Guy like this shows up, makes a threatening move,,,, The most I’ll do for him is call an ambulance for him!
Wouldn’t it be great to get some legitimate Chick-Fil-A gift cards, and give them to the libs you know and say, “Here, we’ve got lots of these, they give them out free to Christians at churches.” Heads would EXPLODE!
Bad idea. Do not open your door for them. I don't even answer a knock on my door unless I am expecting someone.
A properly placed NRA sticker can prevent these pushy lib types from coming too close.....
Or sign a fake name to it to get rid of them and make sure they don’t come back and vandalize, the little crybabies they are.
What’s with this meaningless petition anyway? The issues he opposes WILL be on the ballot in November. What’s a stupid petulant petition going to do? Or does anyone know if they can still get this knocked off the ballot?
The First lady heard this today and looked at me and said, "pray to the Lord that someone doesn't come on our property and act that way."
Midol is primarily for “that time of the month,” isn’t it?
I= I’m. I really need to hire a proofreader. :^(
Rats. I’m missing all the fun. Haven’t had any doorbell ringers since I started answering the door with a magnum revolver on my hip.
The past few years I’ve been donating to various state Marriage referendums big time hoping to get on a “hate list” and get approached by a sodomite on account of it. But I couldn’t even get on California’s “H8” list. Disappointing, to say the least.
RUSH: Look, they’re gonna be back. They’re gonna be back because you are now targeted.
She was frightened, so he frightens her even more so he can get a quip in about giving them a CFA card?
It always amazes me how they carry down the chain. If you are against gay MARRIAGE (not even homosexuality), then it must mean you want women to live like it’s 1850, you want to kill all immigrants (not even just illegals they claim malice toward, but immigrants in general) and you also must enjoy torturing puppies in your spare time.
It’s truly a mental disorder.
When he’s halfway through his speech, start yelling, “ GREY CARRIAGE? WHAT THE HECK DO I CARE ABOUT A GREY CARRIAGE? GET OFF MY PROPERTY HORSE ABUSER!”
My doorbell rang tonight and I answered. There were two young women, with tattoos and pink hair. They introduced themselves and then said they were with the AFL-CIO. I nicely said they probably did not want to speak with me. I smiled and told them to have a nice evening. They said thank you and went on their way. Very pleasant and not at all pushy.
Not sure I would be able to hold my “composure”. Perhaps at one time, but you’re standing on MY PROPERTY and have the gall to start berating ME?
His butt would be on the ground, and I don’t think he would get up for awhile...
Needless to say no solicitor bothered to ring the doorbell or knock on the door
Just drove by the Chick Fil A which opens in to weeks. there are two guys holding signs on the corner of where the store will open but, if you didn’t know what was going on you’d never connect them with that store , they are that far away from it.
Weirdly, there is news van setup with a camera by the front door.
I don’t have the heart to tell them the protesters they are waiting for are 100 yards away and out of view.
The BEST advice I ever heard about talking to liberals who come to the door:
Keep ‘em talking! Act all interested and like you can be converted. Ask lots of questions.
The more time they spend on your doorstep, the less time they’ll have to get their petitions signed. :-)
I would just refuse to sign either one of them, without giving a reason.
I would hope that the petitioner would have the wherewithall to get off my porch.
I definitely would have "no tolerance" for the homo. I'd grab the bug spray, and claim self defense.
Very large dogs tend to have that effect too.
I love the free promo photo. Is Rush angling for a new sponsor? Sounds like a win-win.
I look out the peep hole and if I know them I will open the door, otherwise I just walk away.
The ones that make me mad are the tree trimmer guys. They will ring the doorbell then stick a card in the door and walk off. Our den is in the back of the house and by the time I get to the front door they will already be at the end of the driveway. I usually open the door and yell at them to quit ringing the dam doorbells. lol
Guess I’ll have to take down the “No Soliciting” sign and ruin somebody’s day.
When you call the police, simply tell them that you thought you heard the person say he had a gun and wasn’t afraid to use it - or something like that. Then hang up and see how long it takes for the police to arrive.
Hannity had Leo Terrell on his show last night opposite Kimberly Gillfoil talking about the Chick-fil-A brouhaha.
Leo screamed over her nearly the entire time all about how the Bible was used to oppress women and enslave blacks and now to deny civil rights to same sex couples.
This is the way they plan to win, by equating homosexuality with conditions that one is born with and has no control over, such as being female or black.
We must remind people that is no proof, despite years and years and millions of dollars spent on research, that one is born homosexual.
This is only going to get uglier.
I don’t call 911.
I want to second the thanks to you for all the interesting articles you post, Kaslin.
I am glad you let me know about this woman’s experience. No wacko would dare do that here unless he wanted to play suicide by homeowner...but it’s good to have a heads up.
I would think that the unmistakable sound of a 12 bore pump gun being racked and then yelling “You don’t want any trouble here!” while the door is still closed would clear most human debris from your property.
Reminds me of the homos banging on Lotts door demanding the two angels be handed over to them. That is where we are headed if we continue to empower these mental cases.
I read a follow up on a story about a boy who murdered his mom and dad and then hosted a party with the bodies upstairs.
He’s gay and was in a drama snit so murdered them. The most vile and murderous lefty internet activity comes from homo dominance crowd.
When hes halfway through his speech, start yelling, GREY CARRIAGE? WHAT THE HECK DO I CARE ABOUT A GREY CARRIAGE? GET OFF MY PROPERTY HORSE ABUSER!
In this day and age, my Wife will never answer the door unless she knows the person.
On occasion I’ll answer the door unless the person standing on the other side doesn’t look “right”. Even then I have my 9MM tucked securely into the waistband of my pants.
You never know...
My way is better.
You look down at your feet, get a little tic going on your face, tilt your head just slightly like you’re hearing something and mumble “I am calm, I won’t do it again, I’m not going back inside.”
A mildly disoriented look in your eyes helps.
In front of a local market was a guy collecting signatures for some Ballot Proposals. He had a few, but the one that cracked me up was to support a 3% ADDITIONAL Tax on the evil Rich (that would make the top CA income tax rate 14%) to fund “education”. The guy was a true believer.
I told him no thanks while mentioning he was in the wrong town if he expected people to sign it. I actually laughed out loud when he explained how wonderful it would be for the children. Liberals love the children as long as they can murder them in the womb without guilt or responsibility.
' mkeep ing a videocam 12 guage shotgun by the door for such an event.
When you read a story like this, those old ways make more and more sense.
“You look down at your feet, get a little tic going on your face, tilt your head just slightly like youre hearing something and mumble I am calm, I wont do it again, Im not going back inside.
A mildly disoriented look in your eyes helps.”
I had a college sociology prof. that thought sometimes tactics like this were good for dealing with jerks. Be socially inappropriate/crazy acting enough that you scare them off. That’s one college lesson that’s stuck with me.
A fence around your property really helps this shit. No one ever knocks on my door - they would have to get past the dogs first. They then would be met by the business end of a Mossberg that came up from behind them.
