    CREEPY: Leftist Asks Senator During Town Hall If His Daughter Was Kidnapped

    CREEPY: Leftist Asks Senator During Town Hall If His Daughter Was Kidnapped


    "We've been here for a while," Radecki said. "You probably haven't seen the news. Can you confirm whether or not your daughter Bridget has been kidnapped?"

    There was an eerie, frightening silence that ensued with Toomey simply responding with an "uhhhhh" for about four seconds, before Radecki said, "The reason I ask is because that’s the reality of families that suffer deportation..."

    A visibly irked Toomey then promptly dismissed the question as "ridiculous"; Radecki was escorted out of the town hall and is now likely to face charges of disorderly conduct.

    I get escorting him out because that specific question probably was construed to be a potential threat. But to charge with disorderly conduct (assuming he wasn't yelling and screaming and causing a commotion; the story didn't indicate this was the case) seems to be over the top. Charging disorderly conduct for asking a public official a question, even one as reprehensible as the one asked, is a real threat to the 1st Amendment.

    The story didn't say he was charged with disorderly conduct; DailyWire just speculates that he *could* be. Unless there is more to the story, you are correct that it's not against the law to simply ask a question of an elected official, even a dumb question. Too bad making a faulty equivalency isn't against the law, either, otherwise there would be a ton of these folks in the pokey.

    States the news is that his daughter has been kidnapped, or an attempt has been made to kidnap her and is asking if it was successful.

    Sounds like the questioner has conspired to kidnap a family member of an elected official to me. Arrest the dummy and hold him without bail while it is investigated.

    That's a big stretch. My take is that this guy, like so many hysterical ideologues, went too far in trying to make a point and ended up looking like a psycho.

    Let's hope that would that qualify him for a mandatory 72-hour psych evaluation?
