Atlanta TV Exposes Dem Congressman Yelling At Healthcare Questioner [More how-dare-you elitism]
Newsbusters ^ | August 8, 2009 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 08/08/2009 10:30:20 AM PDT by chuck_the_tv_out

As national media outlets and their employees depict town hall meeting protesters as right-wing outsiders organized by conservative organizations, the Atlanta affiliate of NBC aired a segment Friday evening that should act as a fine example of how this uprising in America should be covered.

11 Alive reporter Duffie Dixon not only showed a heated exchange between Rep. David Scott (D-13th District) and a man asking him about his position on pending healthcare legislation in the House, but also interviewed the questioner when Scott erroneously contended the man was not a constituent and was only trying to hijack his meeting.

As Dixon shared with her viewers, not only wasn't the questioner an organized outsider, he was actually a local doctor (video embedded below the fold, h/t Hot Air via Terri Green):

This congressman has a really bad case of “Don’t ask me anything that makes me uncomfortable or makes me look bad.”

These congressment get increasingly arrogant the longer they stay in D.C. In their view, their constituents are supposed to applaud their shuck and jive routine and vote for them until they’re ready to retire.

Questions and opposition are not to be countenanced.

Whats funny is that the good doctors not even a republican. Stupid democrats think all the people in their party support a government takeover when they don’t.

Very predictable behavior, shout at the questioner and then lie through the teeth. I guess that is what the DNC put out as “the talking points” LIE LIE LIE, and if that don’t work,lie again and call on the SEIU thugs.

Cong. Scott, you are an elitist. How many people will be “approved” to enter your healthcare meeting to ask questions? The cost of healthcare has skyrocketed BECAUSE of government involvement...and you want to give us even more of the same? Lunacy!

Why do communists always look so angry and full of hate? They never seem to be happy unless they are unhappy and miserable.

This guy sounds like a real piece of work. From wikipedia:

Since 1978, Scott has owned Dayn-Mark Advertising, which places billboards and other forms of advertising in the Atlanta area. Scott's wife, Alfredia, now heads the business. In May 2007, it was reported that the business owes more than $150,000 in back taxes and penalties. Scott's campaigns have paid the company more than $500,000 since 2002 for office rent, printing, T-shirts, and other services. He has also paid his wife, two daughters, and son-in-law tens of thousands of dollars for campaign work such as fund raising and canvassing.

In 2007, Scott was named one of the 22 most corrupt members of Congress by the political watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington In addition to the above complaints Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington also brought into question David Scott's character after he called his Congressional opponent, Deborah Honeycutt, a 'bitch.' After it was reported that Congressman Scott had called Dr. Deborah Honeycutt a 'bitch,' Donzella James, Scott's 2008 Democratic Primary Opponent, issued this statement: "[David Scott] has been disrespectful to me and other women in my presence. Even in mixed company, he often makes vulgar references that are less than gentlemanly."

Boy, something very good must be in the water in Atlanta...local news stations doing the reportorial work that the rest of the media won't do: Atlanta News Station Exposes HSUS Fundraising Deception

(Sorry, I don't mean to be a one-trick-pony with my anti-animal rights posts, but if HSUS has its way, animal agriculture will be outsourced to Mexico and China.)

Not surprised he called his opponent a “bitch.” Looked like he was very close to letting loose a racial epithet on the doctor in the clip. Hateful, corrupt, vulgar, mendacious. . . CongressThug Scott you are an embarassment to your constituents, your party. . . and really, all of humanity.

they keep saying a mere “man” was being yelled at by Rep. Scott.

That man was a Doctor in Rep. Scott’s district. They should both be addressed by their title.

It is clear that letters and faxes and phone calls to DC and to District Offices are pretty much “old school” and are not working and a lot of these Congressman are going to vote for Socialized Medicine even if 70% of their constituents are angry and opposed. This TOWN HALL approach seems to be the best for now. Of course, they will then move to stop those, and we will have to find some other way to smoke out and corner these sniveling, fleeing rats. They can run but they cannot hide. LOL>

LOL. He is a perfect spokesperson for Obama. What a scam this dude is running. He pays himself to get elected then doesn't even bother paying taxes on the "laundered" campaign money.

If you watch the video, Rep Scott keeps saying IM DOING THIS FOR MY CONSTITUENTS BLAH BLAH BLAH. But look at the poll on Rep David Scott's website. It's screenshotted at the bottom of this page.

Very well done by Duffie Dixon. I have no idea (and I shouldn't) what her opinions on government run healthcare are, but she looked into the yelled charges made by the congressman to verify or refute them.

Turns out that the congressman was wrong on both charges he screamed out.

And that doctor rocks.

We need to keep pushing their buttons until they completely lose their minds. They are in the midst of a major power implosion. They thought every socialist plan they had would just slip through in an unstoppable juggernaut. Reality is hitting them hard these days.
