Throw Those Truthers Out, Bill!

This is something you will not read at RWN very often, but good for Bill Maher,

Bill Maher can add “security guard” to his job description alongside comedian and political commentator.

Maher on Friday night helped security remove a rowdy protester from the studio during his weekly HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” and it was all captured on live television.

Maher was talking science during one of his weekly panel discussions when a protester in his audience stood up, held up a smuggled-in sign reading “9/11 is a cover up fraud” and shouted comments to the same effect.

The host tried to shout down the audience member, who only became more agitated.

“Do we have some (expletive) security in this building,” Maher yelled, “or do I have to come down there and kick his (expletive)?”

When security reached the man’s aisle and the man resisted leaving, Maher ran into the seats and helped them push him out the door, shouting “Out! Out! Out!”

Several other protesters, sprinkled throughout the audience, then stood up and shouted.

“This isn’t the Iowa Caucus, OK, we’re not here to debate,” Maher shouted with most of his audience cheering him on. “This is the problem with live television.”

This is going to come as a shock to some people, especially Truther nutjobs and obnoxious liberals, but your 1st Amendment rights do not extend to throwing food at people trying to speak or deliberately disrupting speeches, television shows, and lectures.

When people show up at a television studio or to hear a speech and you try to keep the speaker from being heard, they have every right to get security to haul you out because you are interfering with their rights by interrupting the speaker, while they’re simply defending their rights by having you removed.
