Skip to comments.Video: Dingell says town-hall protests remind him of the Klan

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Steny Hoyer have called the constituents speaking out against ObamaCare at town halls un-American, and that didnt slow them down. Will calling them racists do it? MS-NBCs Ed Schultz tosses a softball to Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), last seen being flummoxed by his own constituents last week.
At the time, Dingell dismissed his critics as infiltrators. Today, theyre the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan (via The Weekly Standard):
What message has the House Democratic leadership sent this week to voters in their district? If you show up to town halls to criticize us, youre un-American Klan members. Somewhere in here, theres a killer GOP television spot just itching to run in the summer of 2010.

Recall the Klan was Democrats.
“Sheets” Byrd, for example.
Did he check with Sheets Byrd?
John Dingell doesn’t care about white people!
Wasn’t the Klan part of the Democrat Party?
When will these tools get it thru their heads that this is how voters act when they don’t like the proposed policies?
Dingell needs to retire. Seriously.
“Wasnt the Klan part of the Democrat Party?”
We’ve always said you can tell what Democrats have been up to by what they accuse us of doing. More true now than ever, as, for a change, conservatives are being active, and dems don’t have enough time to come up with decent lies.
Dingell reminds me of someone who wants to lead sheeple. Where ARE the sheeple? And why don’t the rest of you take the advice of our fearless leader and shut up?
I believe Dingell was once a Klan member. If he wasn’t, he should prove it.
(turnabout as fair play)
‘Un-American and Nazi wasn’t enough. Now the Protesters are the equivalent of the KKK. What’s Next ? Cannibals ?!’
Wait, now. A black man was beaten up AND called a n***** and hospitalized and injured to the point where he needs a wheelchair. That’s Klan-like, isn’t it? Dingell has the Klan part right, he’s just applying it to the wrong side. :-)
LOL. The democrat party is imploding.
Last I checked the Klan was Democrats and the only reason any are Republican is that they were Democrats that became Republican.
What next? If this doesn’t fire up Americans to oust the DemocRATs from Congress, nothing will. A lot of Dems here also oppose healthcare so they are calling them names as well.
he’s an idiot
The Klan was created to kill republicans and keep Democrats in power through intimidation.
Never let the democrats forget that they created the Klan or what it’s purpose was.
The Baby Boomers the largest cohort of voters out there, and not all of them are self hating loons who want to die from lack of medical coverage. I think the Democrats the party of rich white do-gooder ghouls and brown racists is in for quite a backlash.
Clearly, this is a cooridinated effort by the left-wing MSM and the Socialist Democrat party to defame ALL opponents of Socialism as “racists”.
It seems to be largely backfiring, but I think there is a real chance the Democrats will either successfully implement a policy of persecuting and silencing their “racist” opposition, or they might inadvertantly creat a race war.
