Real live troll

Those of us who are "aware of all Internet traditions" have seen trolling before, on plenty of websites. What does it look like in Real LifeTM? What did this fool expect, that the group gathered to express their opposition to the message on his banner would ask him to take the stage and speak?

Charles Johnson is channeling Maureen Dowd here, when he says, "He had a police escort, and obviously needed them. Imagine what would have happened if the police weren’t there." Imagine, indeed. Let the imagination run wild. As the video shows, there was considerable jeering, but no violence, nor anything close to an attempt at violence.

Nobody bit his finger off.

Hey he needed Eli Blake to stage another fake kidnapping.

Tried as hard as he could to be offensive, and couldn't even get anyone to spit in his direction.

The trolls are hyperactive lately, threadjacking and flooding the zone to prevent real discussion.
