LA Times Fail: "Disruptor" Reporter Exposes Marxist/Communist Bias? Or Poor Understanding of the English Language?

Hailey Branson-Potts wrote a long, front-page article about me for the Los Angeles Times.

She included a number of references claiming that I am "frequent disruptor" at town hall meetings. She was focusing specifically on the Maxine Waters town hall on May 13:

Yet I was not disruptive at the meeting at all.

Check out my own video recording during Waters' first ten minutes, even though she was over an hour late:

and then here:

I requested a retraction and correction:

This was her answer:

Hi, Arthur,

We spoke several times about your willingness to confront and to, as you said, be confrontational and "fight back." Protest is by its very nature disruptive. 


No it is not.

She puts the words "fight back" in quotation marks, too. That is really intriguing.

Protest by its very nature stands to confront and contrast with the statements and leadership of the opposition. Protest does not at its core prevent the other side from sharing an opinion. It does not speak to disruption. 

Definition of "disrupt":

interrupt (an event, activity, or process) by causing a disturbance or problem.
drastically alter or destroy the structure of (something)

interrupt (an event, activity, or process) by causing a disturbance or problem.
drastically alter or destroy the structure of (something)

Definition of "protest":

express an objection to what someone has said or done.
declare (something) firmly and emphatically in the face of stated or implied doubt or in response to an accusation.

Hailey, it's called "a dictionary."
You might want to try using it sometime.

This concept is a Marxist concept, the notion of conflict unresolved and irreconcilable.

This is utter nonsense, but gives us a window into the biased worldview of the reporter.

This concept of protest as part of the eternal struggle is communistic, and not in concert with reality, Men and women who protest in front of abortion clinics seek to help women to avoid abortion and choose life. They do not invade the clinic and attack the doctors.

Those who have protested illegal immigration along our southern borders have not invade sheriff's stations or gone

Boycotts are not disruptive, either. They inform and persuade customers not to frequent certain establishments based on moral or political causes.

Branson wants to push a narrative fitting within a Marxist, left-leaning narrative.

Or ... she was just trying to smear me.

Or ... she needs to go back to English 101 and learn the difference between "protest
 and "disrupt".
