So, its ok for Pelosi to organize these flash mobs for her purposes, but as soon as the opposition does it, its bad? Is anyone else having trouble following the media's logic on this?

This group that protested for Nanci Pelosi sent out playbook to its members to show up to the town halls and shout down the protesters.

Health Care for America Now (HCAN)
Playbook For Thwarting Town Hall Protesters

This group contains lots of other groups like:

ACORN, AFL-CIO, AFSCME, AFT, Americans United for Change, Campaign for America’s Future, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Campaign for Community Change, Children’s Defense Fund Action Council, Communications Workers of America, International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace & Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW),, NAACP, National Council of La Raza, National Education Association, National Women’s Law Center, SEIU, UFCW, USAction, Women's Voices, Women's Vote and Working America.

Notice the media doesn't care about THESE protesters and THESE playbooks. The group recently showed up at an event sponsored by Nanci Pelosi. Where was all the media outrage that we saw over the last few weeks with the anti-Obamacare people? The playbook tells people to yell and "drown out" the opposition. Didn't Pelosi just call that unAmerican? I guess thats only for those other people?

Or how about this one. This surely wouldn't lead to an altercation or anything.

Collect signs and leaflets that are not provided by you or your organization. Another way to limit protesters’ ability to hijack your event is to confiscate signs or leaflets that they may bring into the venue from outside. The best way to do this is to make a blanket rule that no one can bring signs or leaflets and to advertise this fact as you do turn out in the weeks preceding the event. You can distribute your own signs in the event and offer them one as they enter if you choose to allow them to enter.
