Tampa, Florida - Angry protesters and strong supporters are clashing inside and all around a health care reform town hall meeting in Downtown Tampa. The meeting which was scheduled to begin at 6:00 at the Children's Board of Hillsborough County drew hundreds of people who quickly began to overwhelm staff and event organizers at the front entrance.

Now that the RATs are in power, they are employing tactics that would have made the Nazis envious. The Brownshirts at the "town hall" are just the latest example.
In a sane world, it would get reported as such and all citizens would be outraged. Maybe it will still happen in time, but for right now it looks like the Left's plans to completely destroy America from within are right on track, and around 50% of the country report that they approve of it.
May God have mercy on our country.

President Obamas top priority for Congress is health care reform. Insurance companies are spending over a million dollars a day lobbying against the reform, while feeding myths and fears to America. It will take the same grassroots energy that got Obama elected to see the change we voted for. Our work isnt over.

"banging on windows" = "violence"???
I guess this reporter never saw the union thugs in Philly issue that beat down several years ago.
“Inside, the townhall seated are mostly union members/supporters/people - yet seats remain empty. Hundreds of citizens outside. And yet public is not allowed in. “
Let’s see how many other congress-critters & reps try this tactic. They’re gonna be sorry if they do, cuz it’s not gonna look too attractive to the vast majority of Americans.
“sponsored by state Rep. Betty Reed, D-Tampa, and the Service Employees International Union,”
When I went to a Republican rally during the last election, the demonstration against it was being run by some jerk in an SEIU jacket.
Inside, the townhall seated are mostly union members/supporters/people - yet seats remain empty.
BREAK OUT THE BATTERING RAMS!
This needs to be reported. Including the bullsh*t staging done by the politicians and union thugs to shut out oppsing voices and fool the public into thinking everyone is going along with it. Needs to be on every channel. Hope they have video .
I don’t see any Brooks Brothers suits.
KOS libs are blaming ALL of this on ....
Many of the protestors were from the 9-12 Project, or so they say on KOS.
Here comes the SPIN folks! it’s all that EVIL, CRAZY, Glenn BEck’s fault, NOT the fault of those innocent SEIU, Organizing For America, and AFLCIO union thugs bussed in and PAID for this event!!
Check out this KOS Idiot’s comment about TAXPAYERS demanding thier elected representatives listen to THEM for a change!!!!
“Of course they hate democracy. (13+ / 0-)
They’ve been advocating a vengeful, uncaring theocracy for several decades now.”
“This needs to be reported...”
It is. Right here. :)
Exactly how they want it. Dear God, what have the fools elected?
The more they pull this..the more they will fuel the anger.
You can see in that Tampa clip that people were pissed.
It’s going to get worse. The citizens of American want to be heard.
Suits in Florida in July! (or anywhere else for that matter)
Leave it to Babs Boxer to spew BS like that.
I noticed those too. Telling!
I would agree that I hate democracy. Because we’ve definitely come to the point where ACORN/SEIU wolves are voting to eat us taxpaying sheep for dinner.
I think someone should be taping this and asking each and every person that is on the outside how they would vote on Obamacare. Then ask what district they are from. Then when people that are allowed in start pouring out, they should ask the very same thing making sure they ask what district they are from.
I bet you that people that are inside would have no idea what district they are from. Meaning they were planted thugs!
