Fox Host Says Dissenters Should Be Tased

Kilmead laments that people who confront politicians aren’t “beaten to a pulp,” as establishment continues to sell war on anyone who disagrees with authority

During a discussion about a Code Pink member heckling Hillary Clinton at a recent event, Fox News host Brian Kilmead said that people who confront politicians are “threatening” and should be Tased or “beaten to a pulp,” as the establishment media continues to sell the idea that anyone who disagrees with authority should be brutally punished.

A segment on the Fox and Friends morning show yesterday turned into an opportunity for Kilmead to share his dictatorial fetish that dissenters be dealt with in the proper manner, as footage aired of Clinton’s heckler being removed from the event by security.

“They should Tase this guy,” Kilmead says. “At one point with security so high and tensions on edge, don’t you think they’re going to get at the very least Tased or beaten to a pulp by somebody? These people look threatening.”

Watch the video.

A number of other recent high profile public confrontations were reeled off, some of which involved We Are Change members, to paint a picture of a growing threat that needed to be quashed.

As the screams of tasered University of Florida student Andrew Meyer played in the background, the presenters seemed to react with glee, after which Kilmead concluded, “I would be for Tasing anyone in Code Pink,” adding “I’m pro-Pink Tasing.”

As we have reported in-depth, this is all part of an intimidation campaign to silence dissent as the apparatus of the police state turns against anyone who questions authority.

Since Tasing is all part of “pain compliance,” otherwise known as torture, why not go the whole hog and waterboard these potential terrorists? After all, if Ron Paul supporters are a terrorist threat, as CNN’s Glenn Beck has so enthusiastically pushed recently, then how far should we go to protect America?

If it was good enough for the Nazis to torture their political foes then it’s good enough for us, as Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz made clear last week.

“There are some who claim that torture is a nonissue because it never works — it only produces false information,” wrote Dershowitz in the Wall Street Journal. “This is simply not true, as evidenced by the many decent members of the French Resistance who, under Nazi torture, disclosed the locations of their closest friends and relatives.”

Wonderful – forget about those antiquated Geneva Conventions – let’s use what the Nazis did as a role model for how to conduct ourselves and see where it gets us.

Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer!


UF Police Cleared In Tasering

UF Police Cleared In Tasering

Miami Herald

Andrew Meyer, the University of Florida student who was Tasered by campus police in September, may have staged the disturbance in an effort to disrupt a political forum at the Gainesville campus, a state police report concludes.

The report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, released Wednesday by the university, cleared UF police of wrongdoing in subduing Meyer, 21.

Meyer, of Weston, was subdued with a Taser after he resisted arrest during a speech by 2004 Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Sen. John Kerry on Sept. 17.

Meyer, whose cry of ”Don’t Tase me bro’!” made him a cause célèbre on the Internet, declined to comment Wednesday. He has been charged with disrupting a public event and resisting arrest. The state attorney’s office has not yet decided whether to prosecute.

His attorney, Robert Griscti, told The Miami Herald his client was not grandstanding.

“I think the suggestion is that he is looking for publicity when in fact everything that has happened is just the reverse.”

During the forum, Meyer peppered Kerry with questions and refused repeated requests to leave the microphone after his allotted time was up. He had asked Kerry about impeaching President George Bush, why he didn’t challenge the 2004 election results and whether he and Bush were in the secret Skull and Bones society as undergraduates at Yale University.


FDLE said in its report that police use of the Taser was appropriate because Meyer refused police orders to leave the campus auditorium. Meyer clenched a chair to keep police from removing him.

The Taser was the safest way to remove him without harming Meyer or others, the report concluded.

”While I am pleased that the FDLE review is complete, we still have work to do on a separate front,” University of Florida President Bernie Machen wrote in a statement.

“As an academic institution, it is our responsibility to continually review — and improve– how we foster an open environment that is also safe for our everchanging campus community.”

In the 17-page summary of the report, FDLE said it spoke with several witnesses who said that days before the event Meyer vowed to put on ”a show” at the Kerry event.

According to the report, during a Sept. 11 Gators for Rudy [Giuliani] rally, Meyer got into an argument with another student and told a friend that “if he liked what he had seen that he should go to the Kerry speech and he would really see a show.”

In addition, the report said that after his arrest, when Meyer was out of view of the cameras, he told officers that they did not do anything wrong and then asked “if cameras will be at the jail.”


The FDLE report included interviews with witnesses, university employees, and video footage to make the determination that police acted properly, according to the summary.

On his website,, Meyer offered no statement but sought contributions to his legal defense fund.

Griscti said that although he still has to review the full 300-page report, he dismissed statements that police claim Meyer made while in police custody.

The university released only a 17-page summary on Wednesday.

”He was in the custody of police officers without anyone around him,” Griscti said.

He also said that Meyer, a former honors student at Cypress Bay High School, is doing OK and focusing on his classes.

Whether Meyer will face criminal charges for resisting arrest and causing a disturbance will be determined in the next few days, officials said.

”It’s still under review at the state attorney’s office on whether criminal charges are going to be filed,” said Spencer Mann, spokesman for Gainesville’s state attorney’s office.

While students at the university staged protests against the Tasering the day after it happened, students yesterday said they’ve had some time to reconsider whether campus police violated Meyer’s right to free speech.

”A lot of people who protested obviously didn’t care that much about it or they’d be out here today,” Chris Mueller, a UF physics major, said Wednesday.

”I know I definitely feel differently than when I first saw the YouTube videos,” he said, adding that he now thinks the officers did the right thing.

Gwen Kaster, a UF religion major, agreed.

”They should have beat him with some batons while they were at it,” Kaster said.


Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, who read the FDLE report and saw the footage on, said Meyer’s arrest and Tasering were a sad statement on how heated political discourse is being discouraged on college campuses.

”Universities are the place for untidy, boisterous, rude, and offensive political debate to take place,” said Simon, adding that Meyer should have been left alone to make his statements and ask his ”untidy” questions, especially since Kerry appeared ready to answer them.

Simon also dismissed the findings of the FDLE report.

”When you have one Florida law enforcement agency investigating another Florida law enforcement agency, the conclusions are predictable,” Simon said.
