Hard-Left America-Haters Yell and Scream Through Opening Prayer, Pledge of Allegiance at Republican Town Hall

67

This is the left today. They don’t even bother to conceal their hatred and contempt for America. This is what we are facing in the large-scale effort to drain the swamp both politically and culturally.

“Liberal Protesters Disrupt Opening Prayer, Pledge of Allegiance at Republican Town Hall,” by Cameron Cawthorne, Washington Free Beacon, February 24, 2017:

Liberal protesters yelled throughout the opening prayer and Pledge of Allegiance on Wednesday during Sen. Bill Cassidy’s (R., La.) town hall meeting in Metairie, La.

Cassidy scheduled the town hall to discuss various issues including immigration, health care, and the economy. However, many people in the crowd would not listen to Cassidy, and instead heckled him and yelled out slogans commonly heard at anti-Republican rallies.

Before Cassidy addressed the crowd and took questions, Louisiana State chaplain Dr. Michael Sprague announced that he would begin the prayer. As soon as he said “prayer” the crowd erupted.

Several people could be heard yelling, “Prayer? Prayer?” while other people yelled, “Separation of church and state.”

Another person added, “Pray on your own time. This is our time.”

The yelling softened as the prayer went on, but erupted again when Sprague concluded, “We pray in Jesus’ name.”

Several people began yelling about the separation of church and state again.

The people shouting about separation of church and state were not incorrect when they asserted the chaplain was infringing on their religious rights. The 2014 Supreme Court case, Town of Greece v. Galloway, protects the opening prayer at legislative sessions.

The crowd did not let up with the heckling following the opening prayer, and continued to yell as a local veteran took the microphone to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.

Dozens of people did not stand for the Pledge. Instead, many of them sat down and continued to yell at Cassidy….

    I am so appalled and disgusted by these lawless lefties that I’m almost at a loss for words.
    Why was this lawless activity tolerated? Don’t they have guards to “keep the peace”? Imo, I think these rotten people should be arrested. At the very least, they should have been ordered to shut up until given recognition to speak.
    This is an outrage.

    • Dennis

      I am also appalled by this conduct of these people. It is now believed that these roustabouts are actually organized components of groups who are simply ultra-liberal anti-Trump/Republican, and have as their goal the intimidation of anyone who may speak as a Conservative or a Centrist. These groups are being funded to create havoc. Recently, one of these groups was identified as a group that calls itself “Indivisible.” They are rabble rousers. We have seen this conduct at Berkeley, and at other events like this one. This conduct is similar to what Europe experienced in the 1920’s and 1930’s when the Nazis’ and Fascists’ were taking over the governments in Germany, Italy and other locations. Though they cannot be ignored, as to do so as they disrupt reasonably conducted proceeding which are otherwise consistent with free speech, is to allow history to repeat itself. While I totally respect the rights granted under our Constitution of free speech, it should never be allowed to be used to intimidate and force others from allowing them to present there own thoughts thru the medium of free speech. We must vigorously oppose any conduct which attempts to stifle the ability of people to state their free speech views, as long as those views are not incendiary and motivated by an attempt to cause harm to others. These ruffians need to be seen for what they are, and that is anarchists who have lost their ability to understand what “Free Speech” is all about. Such conduct should result in first their removal from these discussion events, and if they become violent, followed by arrest.

      • Mark Steiner

        Has George Soros fingerprints all over this event, and others like it.

      • USMC 64-68

        No, they are not “ultra-liberals” – they are anti-American leftists.

        We are seeing the brown shirt brigade of the commiecrat party.

        • pandainc

          Exactly, dog. And this crap will continue until we stop being tolerant of these fine buttheads.

    • Poppey

      I completely agree, like others of their ilk, they know everything about their rights, but nothing of their obligations.

    • Gnomercy

      Don’t let them off the hook. Next time some smug progressive wants to talk down to you, play this for him.

    • pipo

      beYou are right. This is very appalling. I do not like muzzrats but I will not disturb their prayer. These lefties are way beyond their reach today. They should be (and many will be in the future) ashamed of themselves

      • Janet

        They don’t have the class or manners to be ashamed or remorseful.

    • Janet

      I agree 100%! Their a bunch of disgusting imbeciles.

    • pandainc

      Arrested? No. Ordered to shut up? Once only. Beaten? Yes. Enough is enough and NO they don’t have rights to act like outlaws.

  • Drifter12

    The writer is still using the sap term ‘liberal to describe these people. They are most definitely not liberals… They are far-left Progressive haters, who are against everything that America stands for. They are now emboldened because they have nothing more to lose. Their champion, which the American people stupidly allowed to hold the highest office in the land–twice is out, now working on the fringes to bring America down, just as he did from the first moment of his presidency. The witches coven candidate that they tried to force on us was sent back to her bubbling pot. They are also encouraged by the money George Soros is pumping into their efforts to take over America. They are out ahead of us in that they now see this as a war effort to take over the country. The rest of us will have to upgrade our thinking to see the fight ahead of us. They are out in the open now and they are frightened, dangerous and fully ready to take the country away from us if we don’t, decisively repel them. One thing in our favor in this is that they are easy to see now.
    “Liberals”, huh? If John F. Kennedy were to return from the grave and enter politics again, he would have to run as a Republican conservative. Liberalism died when the Fabian Progressives took over, years ago

    • Jeff Ludwig

      Yes, they are most definitely not liberals!!!

  • berserker

    Try opening with an Islamic prayer and see how many of these people scream. There will be dead silence.

    • Daniel FX Dravot

      Try this as an opening prayer: “Almighty Zeus, Father of the Gods and of Men…” etc. That should make it easy to identify the muslims.

  • Clark Kent

    More votes for Trump 2020 when they all see this.

  • Poppey

    As Robert Spencer correctly says, if you cannot identify the motivation, you cannot confront the threat.

    Let’s not confuse those bed wetting tantrum throwing snowflakes with real Liberals because they’re anything but liberal, they’re cultural Marxists the same as we get in Europe, the fact that they are your sons and daughters and American born seems to matter little, the purity of THEIR indoctrination was clear to see and hear.

    If I was an American, especially if my relatives had died for freedom, I think I might ” take a view ” about them.

    { Around the back when it was dark }.

    • Mark Steiner

      The motivation has a foundation. The foundation is an anti-Christ spirit John the Apostle said would characterize the last days. Such behavior happens when people hate God first, hate the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, followed by hatred of the United States of America as a whole.

      Bunch of spoiled brats, punks and twinkies.

      • USMC 64-68

        The organizing principle of the democrat party for the past 100 years (at least) is their hatred for America’s founding values and principles. That foundation was laid on biblical truth.

        You are correct in identifying the nexus of the opposition: the democrat party is anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-traditional marriage and family. It is why the left despises America and all who defend it.

        They are more than a bunch of spoiled brats, punks and twinkies, they are also seditionists, subversives, revolutionaries and traitors.

        • Mark Steiner

          Thanks for the fine amplification. Spot on.

    • USMC 64-68

      Who is a “real Liberal” today. There are NO liberals among the democrat party – they are all leftists. That applies to Europe as well. Genuine liberalism upholds individual rights and liberty – leftists in America and Europe are all statists.

      • Poppey

        Exactly my point young man, it’s men and women like us on here.

        As you know, I’m not American but English, but none the less, thankyou for your service.

        • USMC 64-68

          I appreciate your note – but the “young man” is about 50 years off the mark, ha ha.

    • Carol

      This behavior is right our of Obamas play book he either released or we got a hold of last week. His plan is to send his 30,000 brown shirts to every town hall and have them sit in two’s with another somewhere else in the room to cause dissension making us think that we have no support and that there are more of them than there are. Don’t fall for it….you can find this in last weeks news reports.

  • Mark Steiner

    In the wake of the election of President Trump, the main reason you hear people demanding town hall meetings is so they can heckle and shout and scream out their insanity. If a Congressman wants to hold a town hall meeting, he/she is due respect to conduct the event decently in order. If people won’t be decent and respectful. the congress person is under no other obligation.

  • santashandler

    The devil’s minions are revealing themselves more and more. If there’s anything they can’t stand, it’s prayer, hence all the noise.

    • Carol

      We all need to pray louder and more often! We will not tolerate this ….they all should be removed and sent somewhere they would like better…China maybe!

      • Black Opal

        Well, there it is. christians are nothing more than theocratic scum.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Those half wit jackasses braying about separation of church and state while denouncing the Presidents work at protecting America, should be sent to pakistan to live among the locals for three months. Give them one way tickets to start with, as chances are, they will stay, as land fill.

    • pipo

      Better send the morons off to Karachi, they will like it (I believe not).

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Doesn’t matter if they like it or not, good place for them.

    • Sunshine Kid

      They want separation of church and state, send them to North Korea. They’ll fit right in.

      • pandainc

        They don’t give a hoot about separation of church and state, that’s just the rallying cry of the moment.

        • Sunshine Kid

          You got that right, but what’s the harm in giving them transport to a place that provides what they demand?

        • Padpaw22 .

          their cause seems to change daily depending on what they are told to protest.

    • Pathfinder0100

      I’ll drink to that Mahou!!

  • Fred

    Why didn’t security throw the savages out?

    • Sunshine Kid

      Far better to put them in jail for an extended time with heavy fines for “disturbing the peace.”

  • Freeman-MAGA!

    Make no mistake about it the civil war is on, good vs evil. They, the left, are becoming Nazis and will shout down and shut down these meetings. Only their hate will be heard until the take over if they can. Stand up and stand strong against these types.

    • Jeff Ludwig

      It is so obvious that this type of on-the-ground thuggery was a constant among fascists in pre-WWII Germany and Italy, and it was also used by the Communists in those countries. They are as you so rightly state: HATERS.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    What goes around comes around, two can play at the a game. It is time to stop respecting muslims public prayer times when they obstruct traffic, a few well publicized arrests would get that ball rolling.

  • Jeff Ludwig

    I wrote this poem about this creeped out “town hall” in Louisiana…

    Dems gather to berate Repub Senator in Louisiana….

    Godless twits are raging in the aisles — shouting down our
    Pledge with folksy ill-humor,
    “Down with prayer,” they huff and spit. Urging unreason and tantrums of political disdain….
    They are crowding into town halls raising hububs of deceptive tactics, strain the limits of “legit protest” and cry out…
    Against what? No legislation is yet on the table:
    Yet, they shout, “You must answer for it.”
    But there is no “it” so there is no answer…
    Just noisy indignation and shouting pretending
    Pretending
    Pretending something. What something?
    Pretending concern; yet hiding malice. But the over-acting reveals the malice that they would hide.
    Another town hall meeting on the other side of despair.
    Hiding in a corner of the room, rage becomes spit, becomes
    frantic sound
    And dozens of doomish dems demand details but instead hear compliments from seasoned pols who tell them their charade is “right to assemble” and “right to protest.”
    — Jeffrey Ludwig

  • michaelofsydney

    It’s getting bad. I have a ‘friend’ who put the term ‘Christofacism’ in response to my posting a video of Melania reciting the Lord’s Prayer.I have defriended him, but consider the 20 year friendship may have little commonality to sustain it. So be it. I am starting Bible Study classes at my Catholic Church and will no doubt meet new people who’s views are more relevant. That they would be so intolerant to shout down Christian prayer and even refer to such as fascist. We are at war. Will likely forgo face book too

  • KimWilde

    Video everyone of those yelling and than compare them with the next Townhall meeting. If in fact these are the same people start detaining them and begin looking for outstanding warrants, etc.

    • Citizen 1949

      They are most likely part of Obama’s OFA army of 30,000 trained disruptors. No respect, no class.

  • hal8196

    Is there a typo in this article? It says that “The people shouting about separation of church and state were not incorrect when they asserted the chaplain was infringing on their religious rights.” That double negative means that they are correct….or am I reading this incorrectly?

    • Oracle9

      It did reverse the point of the article around, didn’t it? Inserting the word ‘entirely’ may have been more appropriate without implying that the left’s tantrums may have been justified.

  • Sunshine Kid

    Arrest them for disturbing the peace, and throw the legal book at them to boot.

    • Gordon TheGrumpus

      Sunshine,
      No.
      We (the normals) shouldn’t arrest them for disturbing the peace— although that would be exceedingly satisfying! ;~)❱

      We don’t want to “muddy the waters” about the difference between the “Pro-” and “Anti-” American viewpoints.

      Right now they are exposing their True Beliefs, and people DO notice that the Proggies’ stated beliefs do NOT match the beliefs of their actions.

      In addition, people are seeing, for the first time, the actual beliefs of the Pro-American, Patriotic, side of the coin… unfiltered by the media-control department of the Progressive complex. They are seeing that b/c of the contrast of reactions!

      And soon the general public will begin to think about that difference and what it actually means.

      WE do not want to be the ones starting to toss people into a cage, violating their 1A Rights. We could eject them, I’m fairly certain, w/o violating their 1st Amendment Rights.

      IF we simply continue using the Trump Template of just “going about the business of M.A.G.A.”, constantly repeating it as our goal, as we work together towards it, the Progressives will so infuriate themselves that they will self-provoke into an unhideable physical incident.

      I can actually see it coming, can’t you?

      And, when the whole of America can see this unhideable, inexcusable, physical proof of evil will, THAT will be the real beginning of reclaiming America and the serious implementation of the M.A.G.A. process!

  • billinghamboy

    The reaction to Jesus’ name was simelar to demonic outbursts in the NT.We live in alarming times.

  • Damien_Son_of_Hussein

    This was Soros.

    Check the Daily Caller. They got audio.

  • Ichabod Crain

    Separation of church and state is a good thing. I cannot bring myself to condemn these hecklers. They should follow up with a legal challenge to the prayer. Anyone not in favour of strict separation of church and state would be short sighted thinking. The problem is that any lack of separation will be taken advantage of by Muslims.

    • Oracle9

      I condemn the gratuitous expressions of anger. A raised voice is an expression of coercion, like a child’s tantrum.

      • Ichabod Crain

        You make a point.

    • HenryH

      Hmmm. They separated church and state in the French Revolution. People thought it was wonderful – until they realized that they had replaced a tyranny restrained by religion with a tyranny with no restraints whatsoever. The people were slaughtered in their tens of thousands (mostly ordinary folk, as opposed to aristocrats). The same thing happened in the Russian Revolution – tens of millions were slaughtered. I find it incredibly worrying that even the murder of tens of millions of people is not enough to open your eyes to what happens when you remove God from government. Has history taught you NOTHING?

      ‘Historiographers and the masses, blinded by the shouts and the pomp of the French revolution, the people, intoxicated by the fact that it had succeeded in taking all power from the King and the privileged classes, did not notice how a small group of mysterious, careful and insignificant people had taken possession of the real Royal power, the magical power, almost divine, which it obtained almost without knowing it. The masses did not notice that the power had been seized by others and that soon they had subjected them to a slavery more cruel than the King, since the latter, in view of his religious and moral prejudices, was incapable of taking advantage of such a power. So it came about that the supreme Royal power was taken over by persons, whose moral, intellectual and cosmopolitan qualities did allow them to use it.’ – Red Symphony.

    • Craig

      Maybe you should head over to Mother Jones.

  • Oracle9

    Such anger over nothing! Separation of church and state is only an excuse – there are deeper issues with the left far beyond having to listen to a simple prayer and oath of gratitude.

    Meanwhile a minaret spewing hatred in Arabic across the town five times a day starting at 4:30AM would I am sure be just fine.

    • Ichabod Crain

      …but we don’t know these people were allied with the Left.

      • Craig

        Yes, we do… The buses full of the “protesters” are from out of state, the ID’s were from out of state and the RNC has started publishing a list of the same “protesters” seen at Town Halls, over and over again.

  • Janet

    What a bunch of ignorant idiots! They talk about Trump when they don’t even have respect for themselves let alone anyone else. So annoying!

  • Banjoboy

    More Soros devotees showing their ignoance

  • Craig

    All the while, th elying anti-American democrat media is claiming the voters, who voter for Trump, are viciously attacking the republicans. Man! People must REALLY be stupid to believe these bought-and-paid-for protesters are “regular” folks. soros and POS rat oabam shills, again.

  • Kathleen3

    I would suggest law-abiding Christians commence wearing a garlic necklace and also carry a crucifix whenever they attend these Soros-funded bogus townhall meetings.

  • Paulie Gee

    They hate America and want to destroy it. They want a socialist country and if that ever happened they would bemoan all that they did to create it. As far as immigration goes, the question should be asked ” Do you pledge allegiance to the United States of America?” If they can not (and most muslims will not” they should be deported back to their own countries. We can not tolerate anti American sentiment in our country any more.

  • curtis

    I would have walked out on them!

  • Remember people, the DNC kicked God out of their Party, twice, in 2012. They kicked God out and invited Satan into their Party and spirits. They are now children of Satan, as can easily be seen by their actions and words in this video. The Leftist have become Communist Lunatics who are too lazy and worthless to help make our Nation Great Again. They want to be babied from cradle to grave! None of these Leftist Democratic Fools will ever see Heaven, but they will certainly see Satan/Allah in HELL, because that is where each and every one of these scumbag will be going. Praise Jesus for President Donald J. Trump! Lets Make America Great Again! Go out and Stone a Demon!

  • notme123

    Anyone attending these meetings should first, have to show ID to get in. Proof that they live in the community. Second, they should have a sign in list like they do at most private meetings. And third, they should be escorted out as soon as they show disrespect to the speaker. Fourth, these lists should be put in a data base and troublemakers refused entry. This is not what free speech is about.
