Kill the Bill, Dingell!
Economic Policy Journal ^ | 08/07/09

Posted on 08/07/2009 3:49:28 PM PDT by FromLori

You can find protest video like this from across the country. What is particularly instructive about this one is the comment by Congressman John Dingell at the end of the video when he is talking to reporters. He says the town hall has been "infiltrated" as though there isn't a massive anti-nationalized healthcare uprising in the country.

This is a FANTASTIC VIDEO!

We need to work on defeating each of these socialists at the next election.

Infiltrated by constituents.

Like it or not they are his constituents whether they voted for his sorry butt or not. I remind my elected pond scum of that fact nearly every day.

It was “infiltrated” by Americans. He wanted only cronies.

“rather heavily infiltrated by folks who wish to make trouble, as you all saw, and they were very effective at the matter.”

Been in congress more than 50 years (reckon that’s the problem), and he knows better than his constituents.

When asked to kill the bill, takes cover by saying always does what is best for country and his people (must mean fellow dems) and what conscience tells him. Predicts it will pass.

Not flu - a major, permanent case of unemployment.

they are setting themselves up to be very disappointed in 2010 and 2012 if they persist in ignoring We the People.

Anyone can stand in front of people who are paid to listen to them, while they spew the Obama line. It takes a real leader to listen to opposing arguments.

THey have made it abundantly obvious that NO ONE in the democrat party fits that description.

We need to be hearing the Cantors, the Boehmers, the Jindals and the Palins shouting their support of Americans freely exercising their rights.

We will get this bill no matter what. I still want everyone to keep voicing their outrage but Dems don’t care because once it is done. they will have complete control over us.

I've not seen this anywhere here or elsewhere. This morning on Detroit's WJR, the Great Voice of the Great Lakes, Frank Beckmann was interviewing a participant or at least an attempting participant to the Dingle gig last night.

There were two thing of interest, one seen in the video posted on this site from yesterday. I only report what I heard but can not substantiate it.

Statement 1: There was some guy carrying around a sign in the meeting with a face of Zer0 with a Hitler mustache painted on it. Subsequently, the very same fellow was observed sitting at a Pro-Dingle table handing out Pro-Single Health System brochures. In other words, the carrying of the sign was a total work of a shill for Dingle.

Statement 2: Before the doors were open for the general public waiting in the lobby, a number of people had entered into the room from another doorway to sit in the front rows of reserved seating. When the doors were opened to permit some of those waiting in the lobby to enter. This observer saw a man carrying a sign with a swastika on it. Hence, the swastika did not enter the room from the general public's doorway but the "insider" entering the other door with Dingle, the Acorn A$$holes and the Union Thugs. I'd like to take that sign an place it somewhere within Queen Nancy where the sun don't shine.

What a bunch of total liars.

If any reader can confirm this, I'd welcome that posting.

I really hope you are wrong on this. I can’t imagine that the congress after hearing from “the people” will dare pass this.

If so, that "civilian army" that Obama was talking about might just turn out to be US.

The US passed prohibition once and had to repeal it. Legislation that does not have popular support especially from those that will have to pay for it is doomed. It could pass, then the next Congress with new people that actually represent their constituents could repeal it. I hope these clowns in DC understand that.

The time has come, my fellow Americans, to step up and take a stand against the tyranny that faces us today.

I always thought that it was coming, but that it was a generation or two away, and that we still had time to turn the tide.

I was wrong.

The time is now!

The time has come, my fellow patriots, to rise up, and face the evil that now confronts us all. To swallow our fear, and to stand up to the evil that has taken control of our once proud nation!

God help us all!

But do not leave it in HIS hands to deliver us from evil, if we are not willing to fight, and perhaps lay down our lives, against the darkness that seeks to envelop us all.

Get up and fight! Get up and attend these “town hall meetings”! Speak up! Be respectful, but do not cower in the face of the evil that these bastards will surely send against us!

Speak up!!! Stand your ground! Stand up for your rights - for your children's and grand children’s right! Stand up and be heard for your nation! Or you will surely lose all that has been given you, by the grace of God!

So - choose now! What will it be? Silence? and hope that others will stand up for you?

Or when history records our deeds (and it surely will) will your ancestors be proud of our actions, or ashamed?

Fight against the evil that now confronts us all! God please! FIGHT!!!

WAKE UP AMERICA! OR DIE IN YOUR SLEEP!!!
