One of Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber’s crazy eyed security officers keeps watch over peaceful citizen at public hearing

A governor’s security detail should protect him from bullets, not questions. They should keep him safe from harm, not embarrassment. But Governor John Kitzhaber’s security team appears to believe that questions are weapons and have taken great pains to keep Citizen Journalists from asking any–especially questions about the tens of millions of tax dollars spent on the failed Cover Oregon ObamaCare program. See the list of examples here.  Now this intolerance to questioning authority appears to have extended to average folks. 

When Michael Bloomberg’s anti gun dollars paid for activist Mark Kelly to testify at a recent anti gun hearing, Kitzhaber’s security detail swung into action by silencing a man who stood to object to an out of towner to tell Oregon what to do. Kitzhaber sat next to Kelly. Watch the video from Citizen Journalist Laughing at Liberals,

Governor’s Gestapo Intimidates Citizen At Gun Bill Hearing

Casey Runyan voices his protest over the admittance of Mark Kelly’s testimony. He is promptly silenced by the committee chair Floyd Prozanski, and then deals…

Casey Runyan didn’t yell, threaten or show anger.  But based on Kitzhaber’s security detail’s response, you would have thought someone’s life, not their vanity, had been threatened.  

Ironically, after testifying against guns on behalf of billionaire Bloomberg, Kelly was hosted by the Portland Police Bureau to squeeze off a few rounds with the cops.

Upshot: A citizen who speaks out against an out of towner trying to change laws he doesn’t have to abide by is more threatening to the Governor than Mark Kelly who actually uses guns he is paid to speak against.
