It should disturb any freedom loving American to hear that labor unions(SEIU) and special interest groups such as ACORN are mobilizing their members and busing them to townhalls to disrupt, intimidate, and even assault, any Americans who would dare voice their concern or disagreement with the Obama healthcare plan.
I am disturbed, but not surprised that these tactics are taking place. After all, The democratic leaders, if not directly giving the order for this to take place, at a minimum have encouraged it by their rhetoric towards anyone who would dissent from their self-professed wisdom.
Nancy Pelosi made the bogus claim that protestors attending townhall meetings were "carrying swastikas" to the meetings. She has also called the protestors "un-american" in an op-ed column this week. It should be noted that comrade Pelosi likes to throw around the "un-american" accusation. She earlier this year labeled police raids on companies known to be employing illegal immigrants as "un-american."
Senator Harry Reid called the townhall protestors "evil-mongers."
Chris Matthews went a few steps further by identifying townhall protestors as racists. On his Tuesday show he was quoted as saying, "I think some of the people are upset because we have a black president."
Michigan Congressman John Dingell (D) appeared in a TV interview this week comparing the ongoing nationwide town hall protests to the 1960's opposition to the Civil Rights Act by the Ku Klux Klan.
This is just the type of behavior I would expect from these liberal statists. Even though the polls (not that I'm big on poll numbers) would support that a majority of Americans are against this healthcare legislation, these holier-than-thou leftists will, rather than admit they are wrong about anything, force the legislation down our throats, because in their pompous fantasy world, they certainly know what is better for us than we know for ourselves.
Continually dismissing a majority of the voting population as "fringe" is not very intelligent on their part, as they must face election in coming years. But then again, I'm sure they can count on their "enforcers" to help swing the vote in their favor with another nationwide fraudulent voter registration program. Maybe they can mobilize more Black Panthers to be present at voting locations to intimidate voters. After all, as long as their candidate gets elected they will not be prosecuted for the behavior.
It is no longer time to get angry about these type of incidents. It is time to take action with the tools guaranteed to us in the U.S. Constitution. All Americans who value their liberty and independence must get actively involved now, before we wake up one morning and wonder where our freedom went.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)
