Posted on 08/09/2009 2:08:33 PM PDT by libstripper
"When I watch the news people stand here and tell me that I am a member of a hired mob, that I've been called up by the Republican Party, they only wish they could have done something like this. I've never been contacted by any organized group."
So fabulously stated a caller during Saturday's "Washington Journal" on C-SPAN in a monologue that is likely to go viral throughout the Internet and possibly make the speaker America's next Joe the Plumber.

Even in her frustration, this is a well spoken woman. I hope we hear more from her.
When I was in college, I went to the March for Life and I was also a counter-protester at a pro-abortion march. I recommend that everyone who wants to see press bias in action to attend protests from both sides and watch how the mainstream media covers both sides. At the March for Life, the media went out of their way to film the handful of loons. At the pro-abortion march, they wend out of their way not to cover the loons. Conservatives need to grab their video cameras and put their own coverage up on YouTube and let people see what really goes on. The best way to prove media bias is to ask someone to watch an event with a conservative or liberal slant and then have them watch how it’s covered.
WoW...Leah nailed it.
This is just the first round.
Don’t expect anything from the news media. They’re mostly Democrats, parroting the Democratic Party line. They’re not your friends. They’re quite happy to see Republicans and conservatives denigrated and derided. Stop buying their product.
She articulated what needed to be said to these smug, self congratulatory Media Types who only believe the right to protest and dissent only belong to the Democrat Party and the Hard Left. This is nothing short of brilliant! An average citizen expressing her outrage at the attempt by the Obama Administration, Linda Douglas, Nancy Pelosi, and the SEIU Goons and other assorted thugs--some wearing suits and ties--to stifle debate of this contentious issue.
“and possibly make the speaker America’s next Joe the Plumber.”
Let’s hope that doesn’t mean that the Democrats will try to dig up all the dirt on her they can, and the news media will only be too happy to publicize it.
went to a war between the states fuction etc and the media there were finding the worst dress buck toothed couple to film all the time and then asking them question about the rebel flag and racism.
the media tried to paint those who had the flag at this function as racist and it still never worked as everyone who they asked about it had great answers to their ignorant question.
Look at the left now getting all their paid goons out in FL to make it look like the people want Govt death care.
The polls show they are in the minority and now they have sent their paid thugs in to attack anyone who opposes bozo is looking bad.
Paid men hitting the elderly doesn’t go down to good even if the media try to cover it up.
All the talk radio and many other outlets should keep talking about these paid goons getting out there ina couple of weeks.
tell everyone you know how the Dems are getting paid thugs to attack along with the white house hit list
Make sure you listen to this caller from NH.
Leah for Congress!! Kick all the rest of the bums out and send some normal folk for a change.
Brilliant call. This woman needs to run for Congress. She nailed it in pointing out how tired it’s gotten for Dems to dismiss all opposition to Obama and his policies as being motivated by racism. America sees through this tired and lame tactic. Good for her in pointing out the only black person whose been hurt in any of this WAS HURT BY OBAMA’S UNION GOONS!
Was that Leah Remini?
bookmark for later.
Tell me, Obama, what is the difference between your behavior and the Government of Iran?
The producers of a show (Beck?) had mikes at both sides and the announcement prior to playing the audio was something like, "Listen to these people .. both sides, then each seperately">
The audio was taped at the same time, and the crowd was, to say the least .. boisterous.
When the channels went from side to side, it was profound what was being taped.
The anti-abortion folks were singing, praying and being loud with slogans like, "Abortion is murder"
When the dial was twisted to shut down the anti's and the Pro abortion side raised ..... whoa! What a difference!
You could hear filthy language directed at the anti-abortion side .. "Your mother should have aborted YOU" ... and other sick stuff.
Here is a comment on youtube.
Is this true?
“Obama won his first election in 1996 Representing the Communist Party with a SIGNED CONTRACT.”
Don't forget to take the time to listen to Leah. She speaks volumes. Politicians and the media just don't get how frustrated Americans have become with their failure to understand that they report to US, not us to them. There's been rampant political corruption by both parties and frankly, most of it hasn't gotten nearly the attention it should have. We're at the point now where forgiving and forgetting are not going to happen. We want our country back and we're NOT a mob, not thugs (like our president is sending out after us), we're not going to be intimidated (being turned in for using free speech), and we're not going to stop asking questions and expecting answers (but not the type of answers from a form-written script designed to appease / silence us).
this is questions the media should be asking and they would if it had been Bush.
The media have been a total disgrace since obama came onto the scene.
mail accounts to rat on those who oppose obama
talking about guns and talking about hitting back twice as hard to paid thugs hitting the elderly and now Soros is spending this money to get more paid thugs .
there is no difference to what Hitler did or what happens in Iran and the media do nothing and they wonder why they are hated.
it seems the media either agree with these kind of tactics or they are afraid and that goes for fox
the left are laughing like mad because their lies are not being questioned and they are getting away with this thuggery.
it seems the media want people to die or really get hurt and it doesn’t help when the GOP say hardly nothing.
The GOP at every chance should be on camera letting it be known about these paid thugs.
There’s loads of folk who I have met who know nothing to what is going on with this ratting mail and paid thugs but beleive me I am letting them know about it
everyone needs to get the message out to friends, family, neighbors at work etc
