We reported earlier this week about Moveon.org’s protest of Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s recent campaign event in Miami, as the the group hired about 40 protesters to show up and embarrass the former governor while drawing attention to their frivolous complaints about the Romney/Ryan ticket. (See-Moveon/Romney)Just as Senator Marco Rubio was set to introduce Romney to the crowd, three protesters who had infiltrated the event proceeded to heckle Romney but were quickly drowned out by the crowd’s chat of U.S.A! U.S.A!. Secret Service quickly intervened, and put an end to the hecklers antics.

Is this what we are to expect at every Romney/Ryan event moving forward? Will the Obama campaign and its surrogates such as Moveon.org, SEIU, and others get even more desperate and outlandish as the campaign intensifies, hoping their protestations somehow will make a difference?
While these tactics are effective in gaining media attention, they can backfire on their perpetrators, as oftentimes these goon-like tactics go too far and turn off independents and undecideds who will see these attempts at intimidation as reflective of Obama and his supporters.
Obama is a desperate man who is desperately clinging to power, and he’s operating under virtually no constraints at this point. As such, we can expect that his surrogates will step up and intensify their Alinsky-tactics towards their political opponents. In the wake of yesterday’s politically-inspired shooting at the Family Research Council in Washington D.C., old, it is not beyond the realm of possibility to consider that these attempts at intimidation could possibly descend into acts of mindless violence at campaign events, and it’s important to stay vigilant and be mindful of your surroundings while at these events.If you liked the post, please share it below.
