Booing Is Common At Political Conventions

By Elisha Dorfsmith

The big story in the news in Arizona (and nationally) today is that Ron Paul supporters booed Josh Romney, the son of the establishment’s chosen candidate Mitt, at the AZ GOP Convention. I have personally been yelled at by several Romney supporters saying that my people were rude and offensive and disrespectful because they booed.

I disagree.

Booing is perfectly normal and acceptable, both at state and national conventions (and at other political events). Politics is war and the nomination process is often one big battle after another. It has always been that way and it always will be.

Why are Ron Paul supporters expected to act like good little children and sit quietly in the corner?

I have decided to give the critics a little history lesson. Some old history and some very recent history.


Booing at the 1964 GOP National Convention.



Establishment GOP boos Ron Paul when he mentions the Golden Rule.

    Look at Parliament in the UK. They have fights, not just booing.

    Reblogged this on soberpoliticsidiotropicthought and commented:
    No, the “big story” is that Libertarians say who they are by their actions. Their liberty (theirs, never yours) lilts is as apocryphal as the Democrats concern for their fellow man and the Republicans moral values ontology. Veraciously, the Libertarians are lesser known of the head of Cerberus.
