  •  The AUDIENCE SHOULD DEFEND FREE SPEECH. (1+ / 0-)

    When Christie throws out an audience member for asking an inconvenient question, he is VIOLATING THAT PERSON'S 1st AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO FREE SPEECH.

    The entire audience should gather around and protect that person, physically.  If we don't, we don't deserve to live in a democracy or in a free society.

    SHOW A LITTLE GUTS, PEOPLE.

    •  That's not exactly what happened. (0+ / 0-)

      The people thrown out were not asking questions the way other attendees were.  They jumped the line and performed their "mic check" stunt, I guess, because they're more important than the other people who showed up.
