MA Senator Scott Brown (R) found it necessary to chew out teenagers
who had written smack about him on the popular website, facebook.com.
Some commentors on the site had written things like, "I hate Scott Brown," who is agaisnt same sex marriage. There were more vulgar comments about his family, including his daughter, who was a former American Idol finalist.
Really, how immature do you have to be to actually confront a bunch of teenagers because they have opinions? He justified his actions by saying he "was just repeating what some students wrote about him on a Web site." and that "I actually called them on it. I said 'Now there's hate speech and then there's respectful proper speech."
Called them on it? They're teenagers with opinions that aren't homophobic. So you're calling them out? Brown also named the kids, even after "Some of the teachers tried to stop him, and said things like 'You shouldn't be naming students.'"
So how is that confronting the students? Yelling at them and not allowing them to talk back? To justify what they said? Because, heaven forbid, we have opinions that aren't what you think they should be. Because its so incrediably needed for our country's leaders
to go ranting off to a High School because not everybody agrees with him. And then, saying their names and what they wrote word-for-word, curses included, in front of the entire student body in an attempt to humiliate them. Just because they don't like you.
I think Brown suffers from some insecurity issues.Via Feministing.
