Respect to the Council member that got up and left.

I cannot figure out why so many commenters focus on him mentioning Hitler. The point, regardless of his analogies, or those of others he was explaining, is that the people have a right to speak to their government and the government is obligated to address our grievences and this clip is just one of many popping up every day where our constitutional rights are infringed upon because the corrupt cannot possibly answer for their actions so they use strongarm tactics, pass laws violating rights and doing whatever they can to save their asses.

@auburnjunky -- I couldn't agree more. It make me shiver when progressives called Bush "Hitler," and it makes me shiver now when conservatives call Obama "Hitler." It is such a stupid argument; based only on hyperbole, the shock value that it's supposed to garner has long since dissipated.

Why didn't the Chair just let him finish? He had less than 90 seconds left in his time. Connections to Hitler were silly and hurt the priest's argument, but his inability to make a solid argument was outdone by the poor judgment of the Chair. Fails, all around.

I can agree that comparing a council who regard themselves too highly to a man who caused the death of millions of innocent people is silly and a little childish... I can't say I agree to this man being told to stop.
I didn't see how well that hitler speech went but this man was being quite calm and he was only stating that the previous issue should of be addressed before it was dismissed. They should of just explained why the last was kicked out and let the people decide if they was in the right or wrong.

Oh the seperation of church and state? The only part of church in the whole thing was his white collar. I agree church and politics should be apart but only if the church is bringing in religious beliefs to it.

Also the man looks like Obi-Wan.

Anyway, what the hell was up with that dumb B**** woman at the end? She's a mad brah because he made a damn good point?


Actually, she walked out in protest at the violation of the priest's First Amendment rights. She was on his side.

Did seem to me like he stood there for the rest of his time and then removed himself of his own will. They did interrupt his ability to continue speaking as he planned too though.

He wasn't removed... he was just using up his time and then he left.

Get your facts right IAB.

Wow aren't you a police authority apologist. He was removed. He was stopped from doing what he was there for and removed. Get your facts straight LazyMe484.

I think the officers are to blame a little in this incident. They should have enough understand of the law and the proceedings to know when a speaker is in the right and should have refused to even stand to confront the reverend. They imposed a feeling of authority when there shouldn't have been any in that situation. A clear abuse of power and i applaud the reverend for standing there and not getting intimidated.

Also we don't know the background here, maybe what he says doesn't hold up. However, with things the way they are down there, it probably does.

(in a manner of speaking) More specifically, calling conservatives Nazis.

"While I agree he wasn't out of order, and that he shouldn't have been removed, I do believe that comparing the council to Hitler is insulting and demeaning."

So it's not okay when a priest does it to a city council chairman, but it's okay when a political party does it to a president?

Can't remember how many times I heard Nancy Pelosi call Bush Hitler.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was meant to be, and I'm pretty sure from this display that THEY DESERVED IT. How is that justification for tossing them out?

So you're saying that in the face of abuses of power we must... remain polite and respectful? No, this douchebag on his throne deserves neither because he has shown none to his oath of honor.

"As long as someone isn't profane, insulting or demeaning they have a right to free speech in America. I hope he sues them and wins."

While I agree he wasn't out of order, and that he shouldn't have been removed, I do believe that comparing the council to Hitler is insulting and demeaning.

I don't think the cops would have survived long in their jobs had they assaulted the priest. This is still a Christian nation, you don't get away with messing with priests.

Good for him! He obviously has more class and balls then the idiot speaker. Kudos to the council member that left as well.
