According to Mediamatters.org: …back in 2007, when anti-war protesters who make up Code Pink, made headlines by disrupting an official event, the Fox News morning team was seriously pissed off: During a discussion about a Code Pink member heckling Hillary Clinton at a recent event, Fox News host Brian Kilmead said that people who confront politicians are “threatening” and should be Tased or “beaten to a pulp,” as the establishment media continues to sell the idea that anyone who disagrees with authority should be brutally punished.
A segment on the Fox and Friends morning show yesterday turned into an opportunity for Kilmead to share his dictatorial fetish that dissenters be dealt with in the proper manner, as footage aired of Clinton’s heckler being removed from the event by security.
“They should Tase this guy,” Kilmead says. “At one point with security so high and tensions on edge, don’t you think they’re going to get at the very least Tased or beaten to a pulp by somebody? These people look threatening….Kilmead even concluded, “I would be for Tasing anyone in Code Pink,” adding “I’m pro-Pink Tasing.”

Fox News 2007: "People who confront politicians are threatening." Now They're Defending Freedom Supporting Dissent
The party of hypocrisy and double speak are caught again contradicting themselves. This is really starting to get to easy. To bad their sheeple never seem to catch on. This time the good folks at Fox News appear to have changed their minds about disrupting politicians trying to speak.
