Skip to comments.Palin, Piper Booed on Ice at Flyers Game (Hateful Obama supporters so angry they boo 6 year old)

They also booed Santa Claus in the City of Brotherly Shove.
It’s Killadelphia. You expected class?
Good point. Or what about Kerry’s assassination joke? “Quale hunting”
Maybe they are afraid Piper was registered by ACORN and will vote Republican. After all, ACORN has registered children in the past.
Can you imagine the uproar had 0bama been booed while with his young daughters??
Get real, they were booing her mother. Unfortunately she had to hear it.
“Welcome to Philadelphia, Oh and by the way, YOU SUCK!”
Boos from the upper deck early, quickly drowned out by cheers - overall positive reception. Patriotic music blaring throughout, presumably to drown out boos. Piper was stylin' in a tiny Flyers jersey.
So what? These are the same a$$hats that booed Santa Claus a few years back. I think they make you move away from Philly (or maybe force you to stay there the rest of your life) if you show any sign of civillity, class, and manners. Those three things certainly seem to be discouraged in the “city of booooootherly love”.
Sounds like the flagburner who taped this was, along with her two other welfare recipient pals, the only people booing. True Hockey fans don’t boo Sarahcuda.
get real, it was hateful.
Wasn’t Willow there too?
But this is so typical of the looney left.
In Philly, Piper is lucky she didn’t get a D cell up side her head.
Let the Obama boosters defend their own behavior. There’s no room in FR’s limited bandwidth for excuses like that. If the kid was there with her mother and the Obama people booed, they booed the kid as well.
Place the mic in the midst of a few people booing and this is what you get. That said I don’t think this was the smartest venue in which to place the next VP.
the ice level camera shot on one of the Youtubes show a background of people thumbs-downing and booing their lungs out. That is the entire backdrop, no one with a positive response. This is an embarrassment to the theme that it is MCCain supporters who are angry.
This morning New York ABC channel 7 reported that Sarah Palin received a warm greeting at the hockey game.
cover up in play
This was also the same city that cheered when Michael Irvin almost broke his neck, really classy bunch there in Philly....NOT!
If that’s how they “boo” in Philly, then they must be wusses. I would have guessed a few dozen noisy morons going “boo”, and the rest clapping politely.
What is in the back of her head that would make her keep plugging for such an idiot as McLame when it seems they are politically opposite, not to mention that they are sure to loose this election?
Mrs. Fury told me that when Dave Parker wanted to be traded from the Pirates and was making some not too flattering comments about Pittsburgh, some fans threw a couple of batteries onto the field.
I still think it was a net plus for Sarah Palin. Free Publicity is always welcome.
And she and her family came out smelling like a rose.
Philly has always been a toilet of a city . at least since their last Republican Mayor in 1950.
how many people shouted “off with his head” at the mccain mention of Obama the other day, but it got nationwide coverage.
That is what I was told by some one who was at the game..
Maybe we can find some more eye witnesses. The media is going to exaggerate the negative
**** Philly/Metro Ping ****

McCain needs to get Rev Wright fired up for the next three weeks. And ask Michelle 0bama about “whitey”.
maybe the unions went in and bought up any left-over tickets when it was announced she would be there.
I’m not in this for the story, I’m in it for the spin.
Speaking of Philadelphia, we had a layover at the airport there on Friday. I’ve never met so many surly, snarky, nasty people as the people who work there. The U.S. Airways gate reps get the prize for the worst. Sheesh!
We’d just spent the two prior weeks in rural western NY State where everyone was kind, friendly, and helpful. Culture shock.
Because this is her way to get on the national stage. If it’s shown that she helped McCain, then her star rises for 2012.
Yes, Willow was there.
democRAT=Obamabot=scumbag! No difference and nothing but low class. Philadelphia is in the center of democRAT politics anyway so what else would we expect?
Looking forward to seeing how full the Richmond International Arena will be tomorrow at Sarah's rally! The McCain campaign had to get a larger venue due to ticket demands and the only place they could get was the arena. The campaign said they didn't expect to fill the 100,000 capacity arena, but do expect a large crowd. I hope the place is packed! I live 14 hours away, or I would be there! Spread the word if you know supporters in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, DC who might live within a manageable driving distance to Richmond!
Hockey fans would boo their own mothers if they had enough beer in them. If the Gov is a true hockey mom, she would know that.
Actually, I watched the video. I didn’t detect much booing, more or less enthusiastic cheers. There may have been a few boos, but overall, she seemed to have been very warmly received. Listen and decide for yourself.
I think cheers clearly drown out any stray boos.
except in the current news cycle where the big push is to show how angry and hateful McCain, Palin and their supporters are. It looks to me that they're downplaying. Fox, coincidentally, just showed it and the female reporter's comment was "they're so mean..."
Flyers fans are the most obnoxious in the NHL.
As someone who lived in Philly suburbs the booing doesn’t surprise me at all. Fans of all sports in Philadelphia take pride in being the rudest, nastiest fans in the country. For them it is a badge of honor to see which group can be the worse.
Don’t believe Sarah Palin had a clue how the fans would react...her advisors should have known...but then I guess they would expect the city of brotherly love to show a little more class.....never gonna happen!
I have FOX News on TV as I sit here at the keyboard, they were just talking about the boos on their tape. Then talked about how stupid it was for Republicans to send Palin in there.
I think it may depend on where you sat and where you directed your mike. The clip I posted above doesn’t sound at all “hateful”. (Can we authenticate any of the audio? Booing could have been added later...)
she responded well, but I wonder if it’s the first time Piper has seen that kind of ugliness.
