Blankley: I was a little appalled if not surprised that the President seemed to speak words of encouragement to demonstrators that have attacked police, and are calling for, I think, unlawful activity against corporations...I find that wrong.
Host, Matt Miller: What unlawful activity? I hadn't heard that. What are they calling for?
Blankley: Haven't they said rude things about bankers? Suggestions that retribution is in order?
Robert Sheer: [scoffing] I've been saying rude things about bankers for years on this show, Tony!
Blankley: I've seen the news, they sound like they're shouting...
Sheer: That's not a calling for violence! It's an exercise of our democratic rights!
Blankley: [sighing] As long as they're not calling for any violence against people, then they're welcome to lawfully say whatever they want. I'm curious about the origins and the organization. I saw that there was a statement that some of them were paid. I don't think this is a spontaneous demonstration, but I don't know anything about it. We'll have to see how it further develops, but it was odd to hear the President speaking encouragingly about it.Rest in peace.
