Matt Gaetz Wails About His Free Speech Rights, Then Rips 'Loser' Protesters Sounding Off
“This is a happy and inclusive movement,” Gaetz insisted. “But you know who is not happy? Those pathetic losers over there who bring so much negativity and sadness ... they will live the sad existences that they are currently living.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) touted a last-minute self-promotional appearance in California as support for First Amendment rights — then bashed protesters speaking out against him for exercising their First Amendment rights.



Gaetz and his QAnon cohort Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) regrouped Saturday in front of City Hall in Riverside after that city and two other venues in the state  refused to hold the pair’s “America First” rally that had been scheduled that night. 


Gaetz initially characterized his gathering outside City Hall as a “ protest against communism .” But he later emphasized it was a First Amendment rally.



Dozens of his supporters were confronted on the scene by similar numbers of protesters, who shouted and held signs, including: “Keep Your Hate Out of Our State.” 



Gaetz,   who is currently under federal investigation for alleged sex trafficking  involving a minor, ripped the southern California blockade on his America First rally.

“They may try to cancel us online ... they may shut down our venues, but we will take this fight to them in the courts, in the halls of Congress, and, if necessary, in the streets,” he vowed in a brief speech. 


Then, turning on a dime, he ripped the protesters on the scene.



“This is a happy and inclusive movement,” Gaetz insisted. “But you know who is not happy? Those pathetic losers over there who bring so much negativity and sadness ... they will live the sad existences that they are currently living.”


For her part, Greene urged parents not to let their children wear masks or be vaccinated, despite the surging new cases of the delta variant of COVID-19.



The Republican duo’s planned America First rally — borrowing a notorious slogan of the Ku Klux Klan — was denied venues in Laguna Hills in Orange County, Riverside and Anaheim.



An event center in Anaheim was the final venue to cancel on the lawmakers. “As a city, we respect free speech, but also have a duty to call out speech that does not reflect our city and its values ,” said city spokesperson Mike Lyster.



Greene tweeted Friday that “ radical communists ” had pressured venues into backing out.


Radical communists could not be located for comment.



In another wild scene later Saturday at California’s Huntington Beach, Gaetz posed briefly for a photo with comedian activist Walter Masterson , who was dressed in an American flag costume and pretending to be a wildly enthusiastic fan.



“Everyone thinks you’re crazy; I don’t think you’re crazy,” loudly gushed Masterson. “People think you’re a pedophile; I don’t think you’re a pedophile at all,” he added before he was escorted away by a Gaetz bodyguard.

Check out the link for this hysterical moment:

“Everyone thinks you’re crazy; I don’t think you’re crazy,” loudly gushed Masterson. “People think you’re a pedophile; I don’t think you’re a pedophile at all,” he added before he was escorted away by a Gaetz bodyguard.

The sad part for Matt Gaetz is that he's not charismatic enough to get his own show on the far right cable channels. 

He'll be involved in real estate and tax scams in no time.

The funniest line was "Radical communists could not be located for comment."

Gaetz and Green were just left there asking themselves "Which way did they go? Which way did they go?"...

These losers are rapidly losing their base of losers.

Gaetz will just use his extra free time trying to get into Greene’s panties.  She’s about 20 years too old for his tastes, but an easy catch nonetheless.
