According to our friends at NewsBusters
, on June 25th, a pro-life group called Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust
were peacefully protesting outside of Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood when a crew from the Jimmy Kimmel Show arrived to do some filming. The pro-life youth activists weren't in the film crew's way -- whatever they were shooting was across the street -- but then for no reason other than to be ideologically sadistic, the crew turned a hot spotlight on Ryan Bueler, one of the young protesters. Bueler refused to be intimidated and for 15 minutes stood under a light hot enough to partially melt a bracelet he was wearing. This video is unbelievable:
Well, welcome to Hollywood, where celebrity and those who surround them trump justice, because it wasn't the goons who tortured the kid the police arrested, it was Survivors' founder Jeff White. He was eventually released but as of now no charges have been pressed against the real thugs in this case.
Looking for an apology, the pro-life group's now trained their protests on Jimmy Kimmel. Fair enough. He's the boss. But my guess is that this crew is part of a union and as we've seen since our President urged his followers to "get in their face," there's a thuggish union mentality out there that seems more emboldened by the day.
Word to the wise: If the Survivors plan to demand an apology from the union, they might want to hire an army to protect them.
And it's too bad for these protesters they chose protecting the innocent unborn as their cause. Had they been bullied and tortured in this way while protesting against the war (pre-Obama, of course), America, Israel, Christianity, Wal-Mart, or anyone who uses more than a single square of toilet paper to clean their bum, this kind of thuggery would not only qualify as national news, but anyone living in a 9-0 zip code would be tripping over candlelight vigils packed with famous celebrity faces.
These thugs on Kimmel's crew might be cruel but they aren't dumb. They picked the perfect victim for an excuse to get their sadism on.
Good thing for them Ryan Bueler isn't an Islamic terrorist. Then there'd be hell to pay.
