Proving once again that "too far" is never "far enough" for a progressive with an agenda, liberal activist Simon Radecki was charged for disorderly conduct after appearing to threaten the daughter of Republican Sen. Pat Toomey during a recent town hall event in Bethlehem, Pa.
“We’ve been here for a while," said Radecki. "You probably haven’t seen the news. Can you confirm whether or not your daughter Bridget has been kidnapped?”
The question was followed by a long silence until Radecki finally added, “The reason I ask is because that’s the reality of families that suffer deportation … ”
The CEO of PBS39, who was broadcasting the meeting and managed to cut off the question before it was televised; however, WIBC has since obtained the audio of the disturbing encounter:
WIBC host Tony Katz called Radecki's behavior "crazed" and "disturbing."
The CEO of the local PBS affiliate where this occurred, Tim Fallon, said, 'If you were in the room, it was one of the scariest things I've ever been a part of.'
This is the craven of our politics. And it's why I stress time and time again, we can be disgusted by things and we can work to get things done. But if we make ourselves as angry as them, we will never get anything done, and we sure as hell won't be happy.
