Rep. Chabot orders confiscation of cameras, cell phones

This is bad - very bad - and not something you'd usually expect to see from a Republican. It definitely qualifies for 'stuck on stupid' designation.

From Infowars:

A congressman from Ohio had cops grab the cameras of constituents during a town hall meeting. Steve Chabot, a Republican, had cell phones and cameras confiscated in order to “prevent an embarrassing Youtube video from making the rounds,” according to Carlos Miller, who runs a blog documenting efforts by the state to stifle the First Amendment rights of photographers.

See video of the incident below.

Police said the cameras were taken “to protect the constituents.” A local television station, however, was allowed to videotape the meeting and the brazen move by Chabot and the cops.

The cowardly jerk is hiding, hoping it'll all blow over. Big mistake.

Buh-bye, Steve.

This is outrageous behavior on all sides. The GOP should never tolerate this kind of thing, not under any circumstances. Steve Chabot is obviously not a member of the GOP; he's a member of the Fascist Party. The thugs in blue should have their badge and gun ceremoniously removed right along with their pension, then be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of United States citizens and obstruction of official business by same.

These people are despicable, and serve as a good illustration of just why the government does not want the citizens armed.
