Skip to comments.Video: Dingell says town-hall protests remind him of the Klan
Posted on 08/11/2009 9:03:11 AM PDT by RobinMasters
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.
Thanks for providing the illustration.
It’s “un-American” and “racist” to challenge Obama and his goons.
Who cares what they call us. Even if we go along with ObamaCare the vicious left will think of us as Nazi’s and Klansmen anyway.
So look at it this way: If we stop this attack on our very liberty, they’ll call us bad names but we’ll be free. If we go along, we’ll lose our freedom and when we protest the forced sterilization of our brothers and sisters they’ll (you guessed it) still call us Nazi’s and Klansman and all kinds of other mean names like “reactionary” and “throwback” and “bigot” and anything else they can imagine.
I choose freedom, Baby! Let’s fight ObamaCare with everything we’ve got.
If we didn’t live in Bizzaro world, I would say that insulting your constituents was not a good way to campaign. However, the ignorant, racist, rednecks of Pennsylvania have shown that politician’s distain is not a reason to vote for someone else.
I wonder what Dingell knows about the Klan?
>Dingell has the Klan part right, hes just applying it to the wrong side. :-)
Mr Dingell is the poster boy for projection.
We will be labelled as terrorists and be subject to homeland security scrutiny and punishment.
The Klan, Nazi’s, paid thugs....Declining revenue, ratings, viewer loyalty...I think the MSM are just pissed at the little people for not watching them.
True the KLu-Klux-Klan were MOSTLY ALL DEMOCRATS...
Some of the bozos have been in Congress way to long. They are so damn old they can’t think like they used to. Which is real scary because they never could think very well in the first place.
What does HE know about the klan???
It’s just another way of calling up some more White Guilt.
Funny that he neglects to mention that all those sheet wearing, Klan hooded anti equal rights amendment goons that were running around back then,..were all DEMOCRATS!
It just goes to show that Dingle has lost his mind. He is as irrelevent as the bull coming out of his mouth. Is that the best he has got? WOW!!! I am totally not impressed.
BTW Mr. Dingle if you actually bothered to read a history book, then you might see Democrats and KKK together. He should also read about his progressive party, and how they developed in 1930’s Germany. How did that work Dingle? NOT TO GOOD FOR THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!
surprised that no one has said anything about the Gladney beating. Ask him what side is acting like the klan?
Constituents getting uppity, John?
Good lord...is Dingell reminiscing about his “good ol’ days” or can he really be that stupid? What an ass.
They seem fearful they're not going to get their free stuff anymore if 'those uppity white conservatives' keep exercising their Constitutional rights to protest bad government.
Technically, that's already been done - recall Nepalitano's homeland security memo from a couple months ago describing us as terrorists and profiling us by our bumber stickers.
What could possibly be next?
Dingle reminds me of Hitler
AKA "the good old days", John??
Since this seems to be the chorus, I wonder if the Dems focused group the “race card?” I would believe that it would be possible to now tackle the head Dims electorally by repudiating their tactics of using race hate. Never mind the blue duds who should fear the liberalism of the college campus radicals weighing them down.
“Why Rhett, I’ve told you about washing your hands after the weekly cross burning!”, “See, it’s comming off”..
Great Line from “Blazing Saddles!”
“Appropriate action” on the part of the government against this “domestic terrorist threat”.
Have you seen the advertisements for “internment and relocation specialists”?
Dingle reminds me of a stupid racist.
He's really laying it on thick - with a trowel !
Dingle reminds me of Hitler’s yes man.
