Gingrich hecklers plan more agitation, raising concerns about civil discourse
"Protesters heckled and chased Newt Gingrich and his wife as they left the Iowa Capitol on Wednesday, a turbulent scene that Iowa political leaders fear could be replayed again and again before Jan. 3, jeopardizing the civil discourse tradition of the Iowa caucuses.
The leaders say they’re gearing up for a showdown.
The protesters — some involved with the Occupy movement — say they plan to attend candidate appearances, stand up, scream questions and disrupt the events."
Having learned from the rude mob tactics of the tea party that were so effective in the 2012 campaigns the left is now descending to the level of the right-wing.
Too bad. But it was only to be expected.
I am just a little confused. There have been OWS involved 'political activities' in Wisconsin, Ohio and now Iowa. Is OWS political or not?
