Video: Throw Stuff at People With Whom You Disagree

Over the weekend I attended and filmed at Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s RightOnline conference in Minneapolis. One newsworthy moment occurred when a liberal activist tried (and failed) to throw glitter on U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann as she ended her remarks on Saturday afternoon.

I happened to catch the attempt on tape, then ran down to interview the Glitter Girl after she was removed from the hotel by security.

Kudos, Glitter Girl! You really changed the world this weekend. Because what this country needs right now is less rational discourse and more people who throw stuff at elected officials with whom they disagree. You are a fine example of the maturity and logic of the Modern American Left!

Greetings from Lansing, Michigan, where Big Labor activists seem to have a different idea of what qualifies as an “adult conversation.”



Great Article on Videotaping Police Officers

Radney Balko over at Reason has a great comprehensive piece about the growing controversy over when and where citizens can videotape police officers in the line of duty. If your mobile phone shoots video – and let’s face it, yours probably does – you should definitely read the whole thing and learn what’s legal where you live, work, and travel.

Also check out the Photography is Not a Crime blog periodically, which is also mentioned in the article.

And if you live in a prohibitive state like Maryland, Illinois, or Massachusetts, contact your state legislators to get your laws liberalized.



Video: Bureaucrats Gone Wild in Cancun

Greetings from Cancun, Mexico, where I’m covering the UN Global Warming Summit for Americans for Prosperity. Yeah – I know – tough gig.

Anyway, my first video from Cancun is below. It’s the first one I’ve produced that includes footage from my new Canon 60D DSLR – the shallow depth of field and clarity in low light really is impressive.



Video: Proud Socialists March in DC

Here’s the latest Frank Strategies viral video, filmed at Saturday’s liberal “One Nation” rally in DC. The video has collected more than 110,000 views in just about 36 hours, and as I write this it is the 28th-most-viewed YouTube video in the world over the past 24 hours.

As you know, if one random guy shows up at a tea party with a Obama-as-Hitler poster, Nancy Pelosi and the national media claim that hoards of angry conservatives are “waving swastikas.”

But when literally hundreds, if not thousands, of avowed socialists show up at a rally that was specifically endorsed by President Obama, the media doesn’t mention a thing. Not one word.

God Bless the YouTube.



Another Marylander Arrested For Videotaping Police

Randy Balko over at Reason has news of another Marylander who was recently arrested for videotaping a police officer.

You’ll remember that last week the Washington Post reported that another resident is facing up to 16 years in jail for posting video of a plain-clothes cop who aggressively approached him with his handgun drawn during a traffic stop.

Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler needs to put a stop to this insanity immediately.
