In her open Judge Jeanine asks, “Since when, if you state an opinion, are you responsible for someone else’s reaction? Since when, if you verbally lean right, are you responsible for the left’s physical reaction? Since when do you have the right to interrupt my First Amendment right to listen to a candidate for the highest office in the land? This is America, not the Soviet Union.”
She continues, “This is America, you cannot prevent me from speaking or listening. You cannot censor speech, free speech is guaranteed. [Facebook excluded] It’s why our founding fathers made it their very first amendment to the law of the land. It’s what distinguishes us from communist countries and totalitarian regimes. It’s why people risk their lives to come here.”
Jeanine tells the audience, “Your free speech, however, is not more important than mine. Your free speech, if it differs from mine, doesn’t mean that you’re right and I’m wrong and therefore I must be silenced? But that is exactly what the left tried to do in Chicago last night and again, moments ago in Kansas City to more than 25,000 who came to hear Donald Trump.”
She labels the disrupters as abject anarchists who were yelling “Bernie, Bernie” and responding to activist calls at #shutitdown. She notes that “Moveon.org organized and reportedly paid protesters to disrupt the Trump event. One protester, Sanders supporter Tony Fitzpatrick, says he went to dissent, to ask those in attendance to please reconsider.” Judge Pirro asks, “Really Tony? Let’s get this straight. Tens of thousands of people waiting in line for hours, stretching city blocks, and you take it upon yourself to have a discourse on the benefits of a leftist, socialist, almost communist candidate?”
She reminds the disrupters that they have a right to protest but they do not have the right to interrupt or censor political speech. “Let us listen and make our own decisions. But then again, Tony, it’s Chicago. Where kids playing in the park are so used to gunfire they don’t even react and where as many as 57 people can be shot in one weekend. I know, I lived there.”
Judge Pirros says, “And you want to blame the dust up on Donald Trump, even when protesters come for the specific purpose of creating chaos? So someone sucker-punches someone else and then rightfully arrested. That’s supposed to be Trump’s fault? A criminal law primer, folks; words do not justify violence. You cannot defend assault by arguing verbal provocation.”
She also has a word or two to say about “Little Marco’s” desperate attempt to criticize Trump and his comments that “words have consequences,” that his arguments don’t hold up, we’re not living under Sharia Law in the United States, and not under our Constitution. She didn’t mention the virtually identical comments made by Ted Cruz, but she did play some of the video at the beginning.
Judge Pirro also points to the Marxist class warfare of Obama, pitting the haves against the have nots. That’s what is at the root of all of this, Marxist George Soros instigating and creating dissent. Tearing down the system we have so that he and his ilk can rebuild it in a totalitarian model.
