Libertarian and gun-toting Kent State grad-turned-journalist Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout was removed from a Bernie Sanders rally by police before the event began, according to a Sunday video Bennett posted on Twitter.
The event was listed on Facebook as “free and open to the public.”
In a second tweet, Bennett – who has appeared as an InfoWars correspondent, writes “The police officer agreed with me that I did nothing wrong, but booted me anyway. On my way out, the private security officer told me he supports me but has to do his job.”
The incident sparked outrage over social media.
Bennett made headlines last year when she took photos of herself with an AR-10 on the campus of Kent State University, tweeting “Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus.”
More recently she has been frustrating progressives as an Infowars correspondent. Perhaps – and this is pure speculation – this had something to do with Sanders ejecting her.
∫∫∫ At the Nuremberg Trials, the Nazis’ defense was “We were just following orders.” They lost that argument which led to the Nuremberg Principles. Principle IV states:
The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him.
This principle could be paraphrased as follows: “It is not an acceptable excuse to say ‘I was just following my superior’s orders'”.
Most people, and police and military are the biggest perpetrators, forget this principle. Even though you are ORDERED to do something doesn’t mean you HAVE to do it. It’s called abdicating responsibility.
I guess everyone is just doing their jobs building a Prison Planet….
