Matthews to Obama protester: Why’d you bring a loaded gun to a town hall with the president?
Good question, especially given the sign this guy was carrying. Considering the lengths to which the Secret Service normally goes to investigate threats against the president, I’m amazed he wasn’t hauled in for questioning at the scene as a potential threat. People are going to beat the Second Amendment drum in the comments, but (a) I doubt it would have sat well with our readers if lefties carrying Bushitler signs had shown up to Dubya’s events packing heat and (b) having a right doesn’t mean you’re obliged to exercise it, particularly in circumstances where it would be provocative to do so.
Here’s what strikes me as very, very fishy about this. The guy was not wrestled to the ground by Secret Service. That’s weird. What is even more weird is in the MSNBC video of the doings.
Because this guy is wearing an earpiece that looks to be identical to the one worn by the MSNBC reporter covering the story. This is NOT a “normal” earpiece like a Bluetooth or earbuds. This has the coiled pigtail on it that the media – or the Secret Service – use. Check this out:
Something is just not right here. Either this guy is a headcase or he is a plant. By whom, I do not know, but that earpiece is very, very problematic.
