Actually, that shoe throwing incident is damning proof of how the Dems have got it wrong. Had he done that with Sod'emInsane, he and his family would be dead or in a torture room.
Instead the guy got a fair trial and prison, which is understandable, since he attacked a head of state...but he and his family are safe.
Democracy and freedom defined...the right to protest, to wear the consequences, sure...but he was free to make that statement and he will be released soon enough..but he will go home alive.
All because of the man he threw a shoe at.:)
