Posted on 05/02/2014 1:05:44 PM PDT by Timber Rattler
This has to be the best thing Ive seen since Newt Gingrich was calling out the liberal media in 2012.
Republican Mark Callahan, who is running for US Senate in Oregon, was in a candidate review meeting with other colleagues in order for Willamette Week, a publication in Portland, to decide who they would endorse in the upcoming primary. An opponent of his, Republican Joe Rae Perkins, was on speaker phone. There were others in the room but Im not sure who they were specifically.
The clip starts with Perkins answering a question on speaker phone. While she was answering it, one of WWs reporters, Nigel Jaquiss, wrote blah blah blah blah on his paper as she was answering. Callahan noticed it and called Jaquiss out for it, saying:

Proving once again that libtard bullies become shrinking violets whenever confronted head on . . .
Liberals are some of the most arrogant people out there. It will be that same arrogance that will be their downfall. TBH, it’s already started, their big-gov’t statist worldview is crumbling all around them and all they have to fall back on is their wicked arrogance.
Willamette Week is one of those ubiquitous leftwing rags that gets given away for free. It is a laughable screed run by counter-culture dopeheads homos who have no interest in any conservative candidate. It was a waste of time for Callahan to even walk in the door, but walking out was a better idea.
title is confusing. Who gets thrown out, the Republican or the reporter?
Republicans should be smart enough to avoid rags like this.

Wonder what the other candidate said about “Climate Change”???
Liberals need to be called out when they do this sort of thing- each and every time.
As to the climate change question; Republicans and conservatives have to be careful with that- is there climate change- of course there is, always has been from the beginning. Is recent/current climate change caused by man? Is global warming actually happening? From what I have read the trend for the last several years has been a cooling trend not warming- so liberals now talk of climate change instead of global warming. What I wonder- if the climate is actually cooling, are the liberals going to order everyone to drive an SUV and burn wood?
The reporter throwing out the Easter Bunny question- that is the liberal way of trying to make someone look idiotic for not believing in global warming/climate change when liberals are the idiots about it. Notice the reporter did not repeat the Easter Bunny question when he was called out on that...ran backwards like the little coward he is.
Not sure why they even invited Republicans to participate, sure made it quite clear they were not interested in anything the Republican candidates had to say. Funny the liberal admitted straight out they were not concerned about fairness. If the Democrat candidates there had any class at all they would have walked out as well.
What about the all-important follow-up question asked Callahan after Callahan answered "myth" to the question of climate change?
Are the liberal reporters the only ones who care about the Easter bunny?
The electorate "has the right to know" or else the reporter would not have so "respectfully" asked the question.
Pay attention to what's important here.
308 solves extreme arrogance.
One of these days.
Democrats are to be fawned upon, conservatives are to be INTERROGATED!
It’s amazing to me that they say”Do you believe in...” When discussing scientific matters”.
Belief is a matter of faith. You wouldn’t ask do you believe that 2+2=4, or there is a cure for polio.
There is absolutely no, in any way whatsoever, no scientific proof that the THEORY of man made has any truth.
Bet that was Jeff Mapes with the Fairy Tale comment. I know who I’m voting for.
Pray America wakes up
Don’t call it climate change, always call it global warming.
Progressives always try to change the language when their nonsense starts imploding.
Ie - the coldest winter in recorded American history, snow in all 57 states at the same time. ( actually 59 states counting Alaska and Hawaii )
The only thing that might’ve been a tiny bit even better would’ve been for Callahan to rise and walk out ahead of the libtard calling for it and for Perkins to accompany him.
Naturally, we should never expect a democrap to do the right thing.
I just sent him “blah blah blah blah blah blah blah”
"Callahan is a moron, as is Jo Rae. Callahan is an utter moron, Jo Rae a well meaning one. If I had to sit and listen to Jo Rae, I would write blah blah blah, or start playing computer solitaire.I know neither of these 2. The person that sent me that does.
Callahan is one of the guys that decided he was going to run in the election in 2010 for a Lane county house seat at the last moment as a conservative, but couldn't make it on the ballot as a republican so he registered as the green party candidate, not even knowing what the gp is. When I asked him, "do you know the GP plank, or what they stand for?" His reply was, "No do you think it matters?" When that failed he decided to run for President in 2012. Along the way he ran a FB campaign to get a job because he was unemployed. On one of his campaign fliers this year he had a picture on the cover with him, his smiling wife and children...ooops....he got divorced last year."
I take him at his word. I don't recommend supporting either of these idiots on the basis of their voter registration or their party. Oregon's messed up because this is the best they put forward against the RATS.
However, I do not believe the display in that room, the comments, the behavior, the ejection...none of it was befitting a forum that invited the group to apparently get their platforms.
I hope the rest of the people off-camera are identified. I'm slammed...maybe they already have been...
