She did not do anything wrong to deserve anger. If it were President Obama, I would have been okay with it. He is after all directly responsible for in many ways for society. He really is making a mistake with the ENDA order. He did promise that.

Also, why is it okay for hecklers to be loud and Chris Christie to be loud, but black women like Michelle Obama can't?

Why do you use different standards for Michelle Obama and hecklers in general?

You really need to think about whether it really was okay to heckle Michelle Obama and consider the fact that a lot of people do not like it when people are talking while they are talking.

Teachers do not like to be talked over. It is already bad enough that we have adults in our society talking over people regularly, serving as bad role models for our posterity. Children learn from adults.

How would you feel if people talked while you were talking and took away your time like that?

Accountability and challenging people are extremely important to improving society. At the same time, we must do it fairly.

Yes I know activists are not perfect people and make mistakes. But I really think they can do better in terms of being fair.

Is that too much to ask for?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
