D3 Senate Candidate Heidelberger picks a fight with an unfriendly crowd. Should Candidates cause a near riot if they disagree with speakers?
Posted on August 12, 2016 —
Interesting story up in Aberdeen this AM, where the Ultra-liberal State Senate Candidate Cory Heidelberger decided to verbally spar with a speaker at an event where he was an uninvited member of the audience:
Things got heated at a lecture by Ron Branstner at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel in Aberdeen on Thursday when Corey Heidelberger defended a piece from his blog, Dakota Free Press, that Branstner critiqued in front of the group of about 200 assembled.
Heidelberger and Branstner began talking over each other, and members from the audience began shouting “get out” to Heidelberger, who is running for state Senate.
This happened during the question-and-answer portion at the end of Branstner’s lecture.
Branstner asked that things not get violent and the crowd quieted down.
Read it here.
Libertarian Ken Santema of the website SDliberty.com was in attendance, and has pictures, and promises upcoming video of the confrontations that the Democrat Senate Candidate had with the speaker and members of the crowd, who called for him to “Get out!”
Sounds similar to Tom Emmer’s Town Hall Meeting in St. Cloud last summer. However, apparently he’s not an ultra-liberal. . . or is he???
St. Cloud residents hammer Rep. Emmer on Refugee Program; Somali teen murders African American

Emmer responds in anger (not about the murdered teen, he didn’t like being questioned) according to this news at the Examiner entitled ‘Tom Emmer’s public meltdown.’ This article has been removed but was found on this site-The smoakhouse Forums
By the way, the thin-skinned Rep. Tom Emmer is the Republican who won the seat formerly held by Rep. Michele Bachmann. It sure looks like the 6th District of Minnesota will miss Bachmann as we learned recently that Emmer has joined forces with Rep. Keith Ellison to create a Somalia Caucus in Congress!
Here is Gary Gross writing at the Examiner. St. Cloud residents want to know what the cost is to the local taxpayer as Lutheran Social Services and the UN/US State Department continue to send refugees to the city that has a growing ‘pocket of resistance’ to the colonization plan.
A big crowd turned out for Congressman Tom Emmer’s town hall meeting Wednesday night. It wasn’t a good night for Emmer because he let his temper get the better of him early in the event.
The chief point of contention was over the refugee resettlement program. When citizens asked for a moratorium on the program until after an economic impact statement had been done, Congressman Emmer asked why anyone would have a problem with people in the United States legally. When an unidentified member of the audience said that refugees were draining St. Cloud’s resources, Emmer responded by saying that he’d seen the city of St. Cloud’s budget and that it looked fine. At that point, several people booed.
The main complaint is that refugees are depleting the school district’s funding. They’re allegedly also using health care programs, too. It was noted that school budgets aren’t part of St. Cloud’s operating budget. That’s shown in the school district’s budget. Also, the health programs that refugees are using are administered by Stearns County, not the City of St. Cloud.
Looking at St. Cloud’s city operating budget wouldn’t tell Congressman Emmer anything about the refugee resettlement’s financial impact on St. Cloud.
At another point, Emmer got upset about the possibility of Syrian refugees heading to St. Cloud, calling that possibility the “Syrian myth.” He later said that he’d checked with the State Department, who said that there wasn’t a chance of Syrian refugees coming to Minnesota.
He might be right about the number of Syrians that might be sent to Minnesota. I’m thinking the US State Department could actually have enough sense to not send more Muslims to Minnesota. Although if they get their wished-for 65,000 in the next 18 months, every state will be fair game.
