Occupy Philly protesters showed up at a Mitt Romney event and couldn’t quite understand why they weren’t allowed to barge in, shout down Romney, and be a huge disruption. Did they ever hear of the word “civility”? Well, if all you care about is anarchy and collapsing society – civility probably doesn’t mean much to you. Remember 8.28 when all those angry protestors gathered at the Lincoln Memorial and were just filled with all that hate and anger and…wait a minute…it wasn’t like that all.
Watch the video below:
The AP reports:
The protesters said that when they tried to go inside, they were refused entry. Event organizers eventually granted them refunds for their $20 tickets after they chanted loudly on the steps.
The activists, who were from groups such as Occupy Philly and Fight For Philly, said they just wanted to ask Romney questions about his policies.
Che Saitta, 23, from Philadelphia, who said she was with Fight For Philly, said she was among those denied entrance.
“I don’t know why. They wouldn’t tell me,” she said.
“You don’t have unlimited rights in this country to just do and say whatever you want, wherever you want, whenever you want. There are still some rules,” Pat said.
“You’ve got to be civil,” Glenn added. “The root word to civilization is ‘civil.’ Once it becomes a free-for-all, once there are no civil rules, there is no civilization. It’s as easy as that.”
