(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Video In Public: If You're A Conservative You're An ACTIVIST And Therefore Properly Subject To Assault

John Kitzhaber, a Demorat candidate for governor of Oregon, attended a candidates' event on Thursday night, September 23rd in Portland -- at the Emmanuel Temple Church.

Apparently his devotee muscle, two black males in suit coats, don't much care for the First Amendment.

The article that I have linked in the prior sentence is penned by an individual, Jeff Mapes of The Oregonian, who writes:

The event at Emmanuel Temple Church in North Portland was sponsored by the Urban League and the African American Alliance and streamed live on KOIN TV's web site. Event organizers said they made it clear at the start of the event that only KOIN would be allowed to film the event.

A series of questions: was this a public event or a private event? Was attendance strictly limited and closed to the public, or was it open to the public? Were attendees to sign an contract, a LOA, a non-disclosure statement, a paper acknowledging a no-video policy? Was this policy posted publicly prior to any and all entrance points, and made clear in advance? Was money demanded for attendance? The creators of the video indicate the venue was public. I suspect that is true. To continue:

However, the edited video shows that the activist continued to tape the event after he had been told to stop. "I'm sorry, sir, this is my First Amendment right to film this event," the activist told one volunteer who asked him to stop. "I'm sorry, but I'm going to keep filming."

Words have meanings. Isn't it interesting how Mr Mapes terms someone with a video camera at a political event an "activist." So there you have it. Where Leftists and Demorats are concerned, you are an "activist" if you dare to video events in a public venue.

To Mr Mapes: what law or codicil was broken by filming the event? Give me a specific section, a body of law, sir, that the person who created the video is in violation thereof.

What might you think would have happened had the roles been reversed and a, say, "liberal" videographer attended a Republican event and the events unfolded as above?

I posit: fodder for Leftists for, at least, a few weeks -- splayed over the predominant DEM/MSM media over and over and over, wouldn't you suspect?

First Amendment? What First Amendment?

NFO: isn't it, though. Didn't much hear about it I suspect, did you?

What, you are surprised by different sets of rules? After all, they occupy the high moral ground; just ask them. Not controlling the venue could cause more of Mr. Kerry's dumb voters to be led astray.

The Left is getting desperate, and desperate people head to desperate measures.

Keep your cool at all times as being civil gives you the moral high ground and puts those seeking rash actions off-balance. They seek confrontations so as to turn this into Weimar where the Fascists and the Communists were killing each other in the streets and sending assassination teams against each other. Never give them the opportunity to exploit your emotions... when they take to the streets, head to the rooftops as you have a better field of fire.
