HuffPo contributor and Media Matters employee booted from Hating Breitbart premier.
Reader Scott M., a libertarian attorney in northern Virginia, was at the theater and gave this account of the disruption.
Yeah, a buddy and I went to the opening night of Hating Breitbart in Arlington. We sat on the same row as Clayton and his lady friend but quickly moved to a different area because he was being snarky out loud. Apparently the snark continued because some guy went out to complain to the theater staff. He came back in with a couple of theater staff. The “snitch” sat down on the front row while the security people walked Clayton and his lady friend out. People cheered. On his way out Clayton stopped in front of the “snitch” and stood over him. The poor guy asked Clayton to move and Clayton kept cupping his hand to his ear and saying “I’m sorry, I can’t hear you”. By about the third request the guy was telling Clayton “get out of my f*cking way”. Clayton then left. A few minutes later Clayton and his lady friend returned and resumed watching the movie. Instead of making snarky comments, he made snarky laughs. Security came back in and gave him another warning.
After the movie Clayton was in place to greet people as they exited and interview them. His lady friend was acting as camera woman. Security asked him to stop and to move. They repeated this request again in the main lobby and then walked him outside of the mall (the theater was in the mall). I don’t think they ever touched him.
Sure enough, outside of the theater Clayton was booted again after harassing moviegoers leaving the theater.
But Ryan Clayton is not only a Huffington Post contributor. He also works for Media Matters radio. And, get this… This week he’s going to deliver the latest in “progressive messaging.”
Why is this not surprising?
Ryan Clayton actually appears in the Hating Breitbart documentary where he talks about the need for civil discourse in society… And then is seen viciously attacking Andrew Breitbart.
Ryan is a perfect example of today’s liberal establishment.
