On Monday, February 9, 2015 I sat in the studio audience on the Second Floor at WJLA TV (7), in Arlington VA, for a special debate on News Channel 8 at 7 PM EST (one hour), “Town Hall: Fight for Freedom: Your Voice, Your Future” .  Sometimes WJLA refers to this program in a different word order “Your Voice, Your Future: Fight for Freedom”.

The four panelists were Frank Gaffney from the Center for Security Policy, Clifford May from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, Jane Hall, Professor of Communications (Journalism) at American University in Washington DC, Faheem Younus (“Muslimerican”) and remotely, Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA).  Jeff Barnum moderated, and Scott Thuman managed the external stories and questions from social media.

WJLA offers a complete 58-minute video here.  I’m “in the movie” as the old man in the middle on the second row.

I made six small excerpts.

Clip 2  will be shown as an embed.  There was a stirring comment about how author Salman Rushdie (“Satanic Verses”) was told he was “in trouble”.
