Gay activist Michael Rajner isn’t talking…at least to Browardbeat.com.
Rajner is, however, talking to the cops.
He’s complaining about a nasty verbal fight that occurred in the audience of the School Board’s Diversity Committee at the Board’s downtown Fort Lauderdale headquarters:
The fight was over – I’m not making this up – a seat.
Rajner and a woman both wanted to sit in it.
This is according to several sources who wish to remain anonymous.
The loud dispute quickly degenerated into name calling. Sources heard the words “dick” and “cunt” being tossed around.
The woman’s husband entered the fray at some point and “lunged at Rajner,” a source reported.
Rajner felt so threated, he called the police on his cell phone from the audience and demanded they protect him.
Michael Rajner: Nasty fight at School Board HQ
“He was pitching a loud hissy fit. He kept saying his life was being threatened by Tea Party people,” one person in attendance told Browardbeat.com.
Rajner apparently got so disruptive that he was asked to quiet down. That just triggered more outbursts, sources say.
Browardbeat.com confirmed that there were Tea Party folks in the audience.
But really, Mikey.
Threatened? Your life in danger?
Don’t the police have better things to do?
Cops obviously felt they did have better things to do. None were sent to Rajner’s rescue, although one was outside the meeting room, several sources confirmed.
Here is Rajner’s side of the story:
Buddy, I’m not surprise with your “sources” not wishing to reveal their identity. But given you are asking me to respond to the events of an incident with preset bias and characterizations, I’m not inclined to elaborate on the matter.
I did file a complaint with law enforcement and given this is now a pending investigation I will be addressing the matter with the appropriate officials at Broward County Public Schools and law enforcement.
Frankly, I don’t wish to contribute to a media platform that encourages it readers to cowardly hide behind anonymous posts while attacking others.
