I do not believe for one minute that those who advocate for health care for our most vulnerable are starting the violence.
Remember when the GOP minions were flown in to Florida to stop the Bush/Gore recount? These same evil operatives are working to stop decent health care for Americans and disrupt the meetings. sheesh.
And how do people like Glenn Beck get airtime to suggest that "his effigy of the Speaker of the House should drink a deadly cocktail of wine and poison that he personally prepared." There are crazy crazy people who listen to him. Shep Smith even said on Faux News that his emails were despicable and hateful. The desperate GOP operatives are inciting violence. This is not a tenet of free speech, people.
And check this out: "Union officials continued to receive a barrage of threats on Friday evening and into Saturday punctuated by warnings that if organizers were sent to counter-demonstrate at health care town halls they would be met with violence." Read this. Jebus. What happened to good old protests with signs and chanting?
Are we a country of stupid brain dead people with little or no logic? With no ethics? With no consideration for others? I'm appalled. The GOP is desperate and will stop at nothing to turn this into a fascist country.... and there is no voice of reason on the airwaves to stop the madness. My friends, this is NOT a "christian" country... not the kind of world that their lord and savior, Jesus Christ advocated. It makes me simply want to throw up when I see what people are protesting against. If there is a god.... God help us.
"I will be going to a local town hall this weekend, all you union members BEWARE!" an emailer wrote at 9:40 Saturday morning. "We will be waiting for you. better make sure you have arrangements with your local ER. today is the day when the goon meets the gun. see you there."Is this the wild west? A relatively small percentage of the populace is disrupting progress and getting away with it! The country is too big. It should split into 2. One country could be for gun toting, misogynous, undereducated, war mongering, inbred, religious nuts and the other could be for progress and peace on earth, goodwill to all people. Of course the gun toters would probably invade the peaceful part.
