It’s time to revive the time-honored tradition of confronting members of the political and intellectual class.
On Friday, October 27, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee at a rally for her campaign for mayor of Houston. As an estimated 250 Houstonians cheered at the sight of Clinton and Jackson Lee standing side by side on stage, Alex Rosen, a controversial Houston activist, interrupted the proceedings by attempting to ask the question, “Hillary, why did your husband go to Epstein Island 26 times?”
The moment Rosen shouted his question, he was immediately confronted by angry members of Jackson Lee’s campaign staff, and eventually, security guards. It is unlikely that Clinton, Jackson Lee, or most of the audience heard his question because of how quickly the crowd and staff began shouting him down. Security ended up ripping Rosen’s shirt in half as they literally dragged him out of the room and into the hallway.
