Confronted by protester while waiting in line for a Tom Coburn Town Hall Meeting. (Vanity)
8/14/2009 | Vanity

Posted on 08/14/2009 9:15:22 AM PDT by ImJustAnotherOkie

I just returned from a Tom Coburn Town Hall Meeting this morning.

While waiting to get in line a woman carrying a 'Public Option' sign up and down the line stopped, looked me directly in the face and said 'You're A Racist'. She didn't know me from Adam. In addition she and her cohorts let someone cut in line.

The Taliban and Al-Queda hide behind the skirts of women and children.

Now Obama is hiding behind the skirts of Women.

Other than that Senator Coburn was received warmly by over 800 people.

What a guy!

I would have asked her what makes her think “I am a racist”?..”Why did she say that?”, I would make her defend herself (her comments..) but that’s just me.

‘looked me directly in the face and said ‘You’re A Racist’’

And that’s the cue to say ‘yeah, and you’re an assh***’. Sorry, that’s my Italian blood talking. Never mind. :-)

Just

Did you tell her...”Why yes I am...how did you know”?

” I hate all people that are trying to destroy this country.... If that is racism, I’m all for it!”

Ironic, considering that Obama used Coburn in the debates as an example of his wide circle of right-wing friends.

I like the way the woman at a televised town hall replied. She didn’t skip a beat as she turned to face her accuser and with justified indignation said “How DARE you! HOW - DARE - YOU!” ... She was showing that, NO, we do NOT have to be silenced by their baseless attacks.

I’m sure you know, “PC” is one of their “tools” to silence opposition. ... but we’ve caught on to their Alinsky tactics.. and won’t play by their rules any more.

OK, her sign said public **OPTION**

Even that is at best misleading and at worst a bold-faced lie.

There ain’t all that much “option” in the public plan.

This brings to mind the famous quote by Winston Churchill to some high society dame (whose name escapes me).

High Society Dame: "You, sir, are drunk".

Winston Churchill: "And you, madame, are ugly. In the morning I'll be sober, but you'll still be ugly."

You should have asked her who wrote her sign for her. She is obviously very ignorant, so someone must have wrote the words for her.

That’s why people like me would do best to stay away. I don’t care if she is a woman I probably would’ve spit in her face and started a riot!

For some reason I don’t think of liberal women as ladies, or female at all. More like beasty animals.

THE DOTS ARE NOW ALL CONNECTING.

This is their last kamikaze ditch into the side of our battleships (although they know the war is over and they have lost but this is to go out in a blaze of glory).

This tact/approach is emanating RIGHT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.

This is their talking point. Its probably in an e mail somewhere. We are ALL "Racists" now for opposing social Health Care. LUDICROUS! They had ABC News run with this vomit just today, (Rush Limbaugh is exposing it now), they are putting it in print, getting it out there as talking points, whisper campaigns, seminar callers, and it is showing up in the form of that idiot who said such a thing to you.

By the way, that was Winston speaking to Lady Astor I believe.

In another exchange with Churchill Astor once said to him, “Winston, if you were my husband, I’d poison your tea!” Churchill immediately replied back, “Lady Jane, if you were my wife, I would drink it!”

Actually I would say, “I FOUGHT FOR YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS BEFORE YOU WERE BORN. DEMOCRATS TRIED TO KILL ME FOR THAT.”

True story: I got bushwhacked by five dixiecrats for supporting the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It was pretty lonely being a Republican in Texas back then.

Interesting enough, all the debating between Churchill and Astor was due to the fact that she was a notorious Leftist, and Churchill, of course was a staunch conservative. Churchill's uncle was the Duke of Marlborough, so it wasn't like he had to take crap from her!

Astor was one of the founders of socialism and the Labour party of Great Britain. I also believe she was an American who married into the aristocracy class, iirc.

You can't defend against a charge like that. This is why the Alinsky radicals use the tactic.

It's the same as asking.......”Exactly when did you stop beating your wife”.

You can deny that you never stopped because you never started, but then comes the followup questions.....

I have decided that is they ever do it to me, I will say nothing and just punch the A-hole in the nose. I know that will lead to a arrest and charges, but I don't know how else to gain control of the soap box.

The end result is always going to be violence if they continue with this tactic, and I might note that the store shelves are completely sold out of Ammo........
