Michigan Liberal: Dingle Townhall on Healthcare May be Disrupted by Rightwing Thugs
Michigan Liberal ^ | 8/4/09 | Michigan Liberal

Posted on 08/04/2009 5:39:01 PM PDT by FrdmLvr

U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Dearborn, is holding a health care town hall at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Romulus Athletic Center, 35765 Northline Road in Romulus, and there are plans by right wing thugs, stealthy organized by a rightwing lobbyist group, to disrupt the meeting. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow reported last night on a plan by the Washington, DC-based, rightwing think tank and lobbying firm Freedom Works, chaired by former U.S. House Majority Leader and rightwing Republican Dick Armey, to disrupt town hall meetings as members of Congress return to the district for summer break and meet with constituents. You may remember this group from their organization of the so-called "tea parties" with another rightwing lobbying group, Americans for Prosperity (AFP).

Maddow reported on a leaked memo from a Freedom Works lobbyist that has a script and instructions on how to shout down the speaker, intimidate anyone objecting and how to disrupt the meeting.

This tactic is to try to keep us from having any outlet to protest this stupid program.

Time to inform Dick Armey that he is being accused of nefarious things, by the nutty left.

Their talking points are being issued by someone very high up and that needs to be unearthed.

Shine a light on the little roaches and watch them run for the shadows.

The protesters in attendance will be that RED SOB DINGLES CONSTITUENTS, WHO OPPOSE THE MARXIST TAKEOVER AND NATIONALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES MEDICAL INDUSTRY.

These RED COMMIE sons of bitches ain't seen nothing yet.

They are going to get back what they dish out in spades.

Not to mention the civil disobedience when they try to enforce their illegal decrees.

Thug? How many legs have they broken? How many people have the injured? How many people have missed work the next day, after coming into contact with these ‘thugs’?

Protest is only valid if it is in favor of more centralized government power. This is their unstated mantra.

The second civil war wasn't only between left and right. More fundamentally, it was between urban and rural populations. The takers and the givers.

The easily fooled and the naturally free do not have a common future.

And what country can preserve its liberties, if the rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. - Thomas Jefferson

Press coverage always means dems are behind it. The MSM does not cover things for us - they did NOT cover the tea parties... Dems are up to something.

"Thugs" are in the eye of the beholder - in this case, the Soviet-style DNC media:

Radical right-wing thugs confront a Congressman during a town hall meeting

Community volunteers ensure an orderly election in Philadelphia

“Right Wing Thug” would make a damn good bumper sticker.

“Proud Member of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy”

Back in 1994, I had a bumper sticker made for my father who was born in 1914; it was, “Don’t blame me, I voted for Hoover.”

Believe it or not, Rachel is a woman. At least I think she is. I know she claims to be a lesbian, but then she could be a guy who is transgendering over to the other side.

Over on a youtube music video, I’m attempting to coinvince these young mush filled heads that NAZI was the german communist party - i.e. National Socialist Workers party. Amazing venom and denial from the liberal idiots in their attempt to equate nazi and fascism as right wing conservative. Blooming idiots.

So if I’m hearing this guy and Maddow correctly, people opposed to nationalized health care are guilty of engaging in politics.

Help me understand. Is a RWE more extreme and dangerous than a RWT? Or is it the other way ‘round? I keep forgetting. There are so many things to keep straight.

I have to laugh at the leftwing loonies going berserk at the thought that conservatives will show up at town hall meetings of "their" politicians.

The really sick, twisted part is that the leftwing loonies' judgement is so impaired that they think that when a conservative asks pointed questions and insists on answers to those questions, that is "disruptive" behavior.

Their Bush Derangement Syndrome has mutated to Conservative Derangement Syndrome; and it appears to have reached pandemic proportions on Capitol Hill.

Why are they complaining? If they don’t like it, why don’t they organize their own little groups to go to the town hall meetings and voice their SUPPORT for the plan, then post the videos on YouTube? It’s a free country - for now.

Dingell has been the Conressional Representative for that district longer than I have been on this earth. Why doesn’t he just die or something?

Yet despite Dingell’s disgusting liberalism, the auto companies kept pouring the money into his campaigns. I’ll never buy a car from the “big three” for just that reason...

That is typical of the Left, to accuse their opponents of being them while claiming they are the opposite. That is what we are seeing here.
