More On Allen Staffers Tossing Kos Kid Around

A Kos Kid, a self-styled practiioner of "guerilla tactics," an admited political stalker, someone who wrote he wanted to give Allen the "Roger & Me" treatment.

He attempted to push past security to get within reach of Allen.

That's a no-no. Make sure you click on Jon Henke's updates at AllenHQ to get a sense of this solid citizen.

The left is outraged.

Remember when they used to praise throwing a heckler to the ground as a sign of being tough, strong?

iberal author and soon-to-be radio talk show host Al Franken physically manhandled a heckler during a speech by Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean on Monday.

The New York Post reports that Franken, who recently signed a one-year deal with Progressive Media to host a live, three-hour liberal radio show to apparently challenge Rush Limbaugh, broke his glasses in the confrontation, but was not hurt after charging at a male supporter of Democrat presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche when he began yelling at Dean.

Franken, who said he was "deputized" by the Dean campaign to handle the heckler, said he did what he had to do to subdue the person trying to distract Dean from his message.

"I got down low and took his legs out," Franken stated, explaining he needed to fix his broken glasses with electrical tape after the fall.

Franken picked up the unidentified LaRouche supporter and body slammed him to the ground.

"I was a wrestler so I used a wrestling move," Franken exclaimed.

The police were called to the scene, but Franken was not immediately arrested for battery. The victim has not said whether he will pursue criminal charges against Franken.

Although he says he is not supporting Dean for president, Franken explained his physical action against the heckler was necessary to protect free speech.

"I'm neutral in this race but I'm for freedom of speech, which means people should be able to assemble and speak without being shouted down," Franken argued, neglecting the fact that he squelched the free speech rights of the heckler with his actions.

Afterwards, Franken said he would probably do it again if someone tried to vocally protest while a Democrat presidential candidate was speaking.

"I would have done it if he was a Dean supporter at a Kerry rally," he explained.

Note that was simply a case of rude heckling -- shouting down -- and not a physically aggressive pushing past bodymen to get within reach of a candidate.
