Video: Hecklers try to climb onstage at Ryan event in Iowa

posted at 5:21 pm on August 13, 2012 by Allahpundit

If only his party affiliation were different, this would be a shining lesson for the media in how a rotten tone set at the top can drive the rank-and-file over the edge. Ah well.

Handled with aplomb by the candidate, but still uncomfortable to watch:

Ryan had barely begun speaking when a woman shouted, “Are you going to cut Medicare?”

Two women rushed the stage, and one was apparently arrested by three Iowa State Patrolmen after getting on stage with a banner.

“Woah…hey…alright…she must not be from Iowa,” said a dumbfounded Ryan as the woman got on stage.

The officers bounded out from behind the stage to pull her down, saying “She just punched a volunteer.”

As the boss emeritus notes on Twitter, USA Today describes the crowd reaction today as “spirited.” More from Jim Geraghty, who’s seen the Democrats run enough plays over the years that he can predict their defensive set for Ryan:

In the national media narrative – perhaps best illustrated by the shorthand of Jay Leno’s monologue, which presumes that the audience has the barest-bone familiarity with national figures – every Republican figure is reduced to one of three things: Old, stupid, or evil.

George H.W. Bush: Old. Dan Quayle: Stupid. Newt Gingrich: Evil. Pat Buchanan: Evil. Bob Dole: Old. George W. Bush: Stupid. Dick Cheney: Old and evil. John McCain: Old. Sarah Palin: Stupid…

Because Paul Ryan isn’t old, we will see an effort to paint him as either stupid or evil. You and I know that painting Paul Ryan as stupid is like trying to paint Bill Clinton as chaste. But we have also witnessed the rapid definition of an unknown Republican figure four years ago, and we know that right now, every Democratic official, commentator, talking head, and more than a few reporters awaken this morning with a new mission in life: define Paul Ryan.

He’s got to be evil, if only by process of elimination. The angry spectacle here makes me wonder whether hecklers might play a part in O’s strategy to define Ryan out of the chute over the next few weeks. The people in the clip appear to be freelancers — they’re the same progressive group that heckled Romney in Iowa last year — but that doesn’t mean the next hecklers have to be. Remember, according to no less than Nancy Pelosi, the people who showed up at the Democrats’ health-care townhalls in August 2009 to complain were astroturfers whose job was to create a false perception of popular opposition to ObamaCare. (Three years later, popular opposition to ObamaCare is a political fact of life.) This is how the Democratic leadership thinks. They’d like nothing more, I’m sure, than to see some irate protesters getting in Ryan’s face over Medicare at one of his events so that the media has a piece of useful viral vid to run with, and we already know how low Democratic campaigns are willing to stoop to harass Republican candidates. So why not send out some boisterous hecklers, to convince undecideds that this Paul Ryan character they’re hearing about is evidently so evil that average Americans might be driven into a sputtering rage by hearing him talk about premium support? It’s sound optics and efficient demagoguery. O’s inner circle might not be good at governing, but they’re good at that at least.

Exit question from the Obama campaign’s Tumblr account: “In case you missed all the excitement this weekend: Meet Paul Ryan, who is actually the worst.”

This is why I could never be in politics; if someone rushes me on stage they’re getting hammer-punched on the collarbone.

After Gabby Giffords, after Colorado, after the Sikh shooting, after today’s shooting in Texas the first thought is how this plays politically? That woman rushed the stage-where the hell was the Secret Service???!!!

PrincipleStand on August 13, 2012 at 5:59 PM

The Secret Service was there. They were in casual clothes.

They screen all attendees at political rallies prior to the arrival of candidates.

As you can see in the video, they helped the police officer remove the first woman and then came in to physically remove the second heckler who stood up.

Contrast what makes the “news” as reported by Jennifer Epstein, Politico PR stenographer for the Obama administration:

politico44 ^ | 8/13/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Noting he grew up in Hawaii, where shave ice is king, he applauded the work of owner Steven Holt and his staff. “This is a finely shaved ice,” he said. The president also prodded White House press secretary Jay Carney to order something. “This is our champion eater right here,” Obama said of Carney, who ordered a $3 medium Rock N’ Roll — grape, blueberry and blue raspberry. Trip director Marvin Nicholson ordered the same, as did Obama campaign press secretary Jen Psaki. In all, the bill totaled $14.98, which the president paid with cash.

onlineanalyst on August 13, 2012 at 5:59 PM

I’ve said this a few times already, and it bears repeating: the Left will stoop to violence together their way in this election. If Obama loses, we will see a violent change in power for the first time.

What can we do, we are not libs. Politicians walk a line between safety and exposure. I pray for the safety of all 4 nominees every day.

Ryan is ok, the injuries are minor. We need to tighten security. I am pretty sure the media narrative on this will be, “brave working class hero woman is assaulted by Paul Ryan.”

We need to win folks, these types of souls do not wish us well.

Too few of his fans ponder that actions have consequences.

If we lose this nation we lost it starting in 1968, a bit late to cry over spilled milk especially when we are out of power.

Given the sentiment expressed in this quote from the Obama campaign, I’d say its evidence of just how much they FEAR Paul Ryan.

Romney & Ryan are going to force Obama, at long last, to answer for his own abysmal record. Obama will now be forced to attempt to defend the indefensible.

R&R are also going to force Obama to admit that he has no viable plan…not for entitlement reform…. not for energy… not for the economy or jobs.

OF course the Obama Campaign fears Romney & Ryan.

And these folks are otherwise seemingly intelligent individuals. All White, too.

Only word I can think of to describe that type of fixation is “Cult”.

Poor libs, it must look awful scary first having to see the lines at CFA and now the crowds at R2 events.

Obummer is such a liar I can’t believe all these people that cheer him on.
THE FARM BILL was passed by congress 2 weeks ago, Dirty Harry in the Senate won’t bring it to the floor along with all the other bills congress has past, i think it’s about 50 bills just sitting there and they all keep blaming congress instead of the slimeball Harry reid.
Nobody ever challenges him on all his lies, FIGHT HIS LIES.

Good news! Someone found Joe Biden. Speaking before 660 folks in North Carolina…

So he is actually out of the padded room, for anyone else who was worried.

There was another scuffle there while Fox was covering it. Megan K didn’t comment on the activity while the live feed played, and Fox removed the feed in the middle of the action.

WE GOT PAUL RYAN AS VEEP!!!!!!!!

Happy dance!!!! I’m not done celebrating!!!!

If we lose it’s our fault,

But we’re NOT going to.

It’s bad enough that Obamao and his lickspittles are thugs, but apparently poop does run downhill because many of his acolytes have take to rude, crude behavior with no regards to manners of any kind. Just like their Dear Leader. What really bothers me is how far this country has fallen. It’s disheartening. On the other hand, I’ve watched and attended several Tea Party rallys and such boorish behavior is NOT to be found. Libertards just seem to be the worst collection of human detritus, where as conservatives still have and exhibit class and decent manners. Had I acted like those libertard jerks, my Dad would have knocked me into next week. Even when I was 40! I had a good upbringing. Thanks Mom and Dad.

JPeterman on August 13, 2012 at 6:26 PM

Its even worse than that…Its actually Harry Reid that is slowing up the bill

Ryan voted for a separate livestock disaster aid bill that passed the House this month. But the Senate failed to take it up before Congress left on a five-week recess.

Fox’ll call her right down the middle….

As for people slavishly believing O’bama, I’ve given up trying to figure that one out. Over the past few months I’ve gone into several peoples’ homes, and have been shocked to find that they actually have shrines to O’bama there. O’bama books, O’bama pictures, you name it.

And these folks are otherwise seemingly intelligent individuals. All White, too.

Only word I can think of to describe that type of fixation is “Cult”.

I know plenty of conservatives, and I lived thru the Age of Reagan. But not once did I ever, ever see anyone create shrines to Ronnie in their houses like that.

Del Dolemonte on August 13, 2012 at 6:20 PM

Next time, Del, be sure to take an exorcist with you.

I would not be surprised if they did not have a little OFA money in their pockets.

I just read elsewhere that Ryan does not get Secret Service protection until he is officially the nominee in a couple weeks. I don’t think that’s correct, is it?

Look at how the other side is spending their time and their spiritual energy….

add in the RAGE! motiff the donks went too way too early…

I wonder how many “just Democrats” are looking in the mirror wondering what they are hitched to?

There ARE patriotic democrats I know there are…..hell most rank and file union guys are just greedy and like collusion for wages….

No this is bad….I am starting to wonder if Gallup et al and the idiocy of D+19 samples is because the moderate left knows they are on a pressure cooker of spurned godling worshipper angst and rage?

Last time the Romney squad called me 2 days before the Ryan pick you could hear they were happy….

I begged off and the woman I deal with said, “you’ll see trust me as long as we keep working I am confident thanks for your prior support Mr. H”

I pray for our country’s soul to heal.

harlekwin15 on August 13, 2012 at 6:50 PM

At the end of the day, this race is basically Tea Party patriots against OWS trash.

They are dirty, nasty, mean and smelly.
We conservatives are respectful and clean.

Gosh, I can’t wait for ovember it is really getting exciting now.

The Romney campaign probably has a fact-checkers team in place, but I hope they’re doing simultaneous research and fisking as BHO & Biden are speaking, so they are able to tweet lies/facts ASAP and also print lies/facts and give them to candidates & spokesmen for rebuttal as needed.
