Charleston, IL. (ECWd) –
We had previously published an article about this JB Pritzker campaign event at the Charleston Library and stated we would publish the video once it was made available.
Now we have the video.
The man stood up and shouted: “You shut my gym down during COVID but you left the gyms open in your hotels.” He was assaulted prior to finishing his sentence.
The key point we want to stress in this video are that Gov. Pritzker did not speak out against his supporters assaulting the person attempting to address the governor. Instead, he joked about “there’s always somebody, right.”
We question whether he condones his supporters laying hands on a protester.
At least three people assaulted the speaker, while one appeared to have physically pulled and pushed him after attempting to hold her sign in front of his face, another appeared to be pulling him from his shoulder and left arm from behind, and a third appeared to have pushed his right shoulder towards the end and while he was moving to exit the building.
We previously wrote about the fitness center closures and that hotel fitness centers were permitted to remain open (here).

How long was he hospitalized after that assault? I am assuming that he lived.

Four more years? Are these people braindead or paid to be there. The man had a legitimate comment and Pritzker or his fans obviously couldn’t respond to true facts except with violence and silencing the speaker. God help us.

Guess it wasn’t a forum to ask any questions or debate….right? But that’s where we are.

Screaming and throwing a tantrum while somebody is in the middle of speaking is not a debate.
And then crying about being forced to quit throwing a tantrum seems to be the Republican response now for everything. He got cancelled.

you must be confused on what the term “cancelled” means
JebPosted at 08:00h, 12 October
Every ti.me somebody is blocked on Twitter because of racist or hate speech they scream “cancelled.” Every time somebody is taken off the air because of a series of sexual assault allegations they scream “cancelled.” Every time somebody his held accountable to their words they scream “cancelled.”
So a guy gets up screaming in the middle of somebody else’s speech and is told to leave, people will say he was cancelled.

This is what students do on college campuses when they don’t like certain speech….not so different here.

Talk about brainwashed minions! These are known as idiots and morons. Just seeing humans wearing those Satanic masks tells you that they are hugely ignorant.

Every one of the people that touched him are guilty of Battery.
The FACT that the guy was telling the truth is what really hurts them. A CISmale white billionaire that has done nothing but abuse his power and raise taxes on the poor and middle class. And the sheep cheer for him.
Just wait for the double whammy gas tax increase next year, the property tax hikes if Amend 1 passes, and crime to skyrocket under the no ‘safe-t’ act. .
