As a younger man, a time I often refer to as my “mis-spent youth”, I would be the first to defend my honor, your honor, anybody’s honor….In short, I’d probably fight at the drop of a hat if provoked. Interestingly enough, I was always careful to follow one motto: Don’t mess with me and I’ll not mess with you. It didn’t matter what names you called me, my girl, my Momma, or anyone else. As long as you didn’t touch me, that was OK with me. Basically, you’re freedom of speech stops at the tip of my nose. Although more restrained nowadays, I still maintain my motto.

Looking at this video of Bob Etheridge (D), I’d say him and I don’t share the same principles. In the video, we have two college-age young men shooting video, asking the Congressman some questions. It’s apparent by watching the video that these young men did not act aggressively, get too close, or in any way show disrespect for the Congressman.

However, the Congressman decided that he’d question the young men, aggressively demanding to know who they are. At one point, he knocks the camera away and grabs the young man’s wrist. The young man begs the Congressman to show some reason, but the Congressman continues his tirade aimed at the young man.

Congressman, for the record sir, let’s you and I come to an understanding. If you ever touch me like that, you’ll wish you hadn’t. You will quickly learn the meaning of the word self-defense. I don’t make threats, sir. I make promises. Your conduct is an act of aggression, a cowardly act of violence. You may be able to bully those young men, but you’ll never bully me. Your freedom to question, your “demand” to know who I am, stops at the tip of my nose.

Who does this guy think he is?

  • Reaganite Republican says:

    It’s Obama who set the tone… HE is the one with “get in their face”, “hit back twice as hard”, and gonna “kick ass” while Salazar puts his “boot on their throat”. What the hell is this, the Third Reich?

    Now this arrogant clown Etheridge thinks it OK to get violent with an innocent reporter asking a question… and in the most polite fashion imaginable- who cares what his motivations were or weren’t.

    What a horrible example Team Obama and allied union thugs have set for their minions.. who now feel free to lash out like punks at any who dare question them.

    Anybody who still considers Obama some sort of unifier ought to have their head examined- rather, the damage he’s doing to this society is immense
