          and you can hear the fear warring with his courage in his voice. That is bravery, stepping up to power and defending your family. I can only imagine what love and pride his family has for him. I’m not related and to me he is my latest hero.

      9. I'm surprised there was no intervention

      Usually, dissent like this gets shut right down. I’ve seen so many videos of townhall protests and of course a lot of what went on during the general election. It’s unusual to see an angry man rant in the middle of a crowd for 11 minutes without some kind of over-reaction by one party or another. It could be local law enforcement or – increasingly – private security firms.

      Credit to everyone who was there.

      there seem to know enough NOT to interrupt him for FEAR of having the whole crowd go after them!  I think as long as this keeps going on all over the country it’s beginning to look like the 2016 Election has had people in this country FINALLY beginning to pay attention.

      I just don’t want ANY Democrats to think they’re going to be getting off the hook for what they’ve done by their lack of representation. I truly believe had it not been for BERNIE SANDERS and what the DNC did to him, people would STILL be asleep and from what I’m STILL seeing from the Democrats they had better wake up too!!

      To the congresscritter’s credit, I was surprised he let him go on and on without trying to stop him. Of course, it was probably that his survival instinct had kicked in. Imagine if he had tried to shut him up or have him removed. Most of the people there seemed to agree with him.
