Video: Dem Rep. Rush Holt Rips Mic from Hands of Woman Constituent at Town Hall!
Associated Content (AC) ^ | January 30, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 01/30/2010 4:15:26 AM PST by Suvroc10

Democrat Representative Rush Holt from New Jersey's 12th Congressional District ripped a microphone from the hands of a woman constituent at a town hall meeting a few days ago, denying her right to speak further. The town hall in question occurred this past Monday in a Marlboro, New Jersey, middle school. When constituent Rhoda Chodosh got up to ask her question concerning healthcare and also voice opposition to the kind of socialized healthcare that Obamacare is all about, what did she get for her right to be involved in her local community? Bully Democrat Representative Rush Holt ripped the microphone right out of her hands and denied her the right to continue telling her congressman exactly how she felt about his performance!

The folks of New Jersey need to look for the phrase within the constitution that begins with, “We the people...”.

You elected him, New Jersey. He’s your problem, at least until November.

Maybe the Rep is trying to land a spot on that show “Jersey Shore”.

Why should brilliant, intellectual, really smart,
genius-type Democrats have to suffer the presence of dumb, knuckle-dragging, ignorant, un-informed constituents who
read and listen to nazi-like publications and tv and radio stations?

Liberal/Progressive/Democrats know everything about what’s good for the people; they love the people, they want to nurture them like the children they are and take care of them and they want to silence those who stand in the way of such nobbility.

Everyone should wake up to the fact that Democrat brilliance is and will be the saving grace of all mankind, as it reaches everywhere, into every nook and cranny of the world.

So, when Democrats are voted into super-super majorities by the enlightened constituents, and our present, beloved president is crowned “BEloved Leader in Perpetuity”, the world will be transformed into utopia.

/SARC/

IMHO

We can’t expect socialist to act like normal freedom loving people. This is the nature of socialism, this is who they are. Walk in lock step with them, because everyone else is to stupid to know what’s best for them and the country.Or shut up and sit down. They want zombies not citizens.

From a linked article, Holt is quoted:””I need to hear from you in order to speak on your behalf — to let (government) know what is working (and) what is not working in New Jersey,” Holt told the jeering crowd. “It has been a tough time for families in New Jersey and throughout the nation.”

Apparently that is not quite true....He doesn’t want to hear...like all of them he wants to lecture.

What an arrogant bastid.

This guy's a gift!! We need to get it posted everywhere Dems would look...."RUSH ACTS LIKE A JERK--See it here!"

Of course, I maintain most Dems have never seen nor heard Rush Limbaugh, so they probably wouldn't know it's not him.

Again, agreed. They think that the election of 0bama and the Democrat Congress is clear cut, bright line proof that America is ready for socialism, and that the only thing preventing us from entering that utopian world is a gutless bunch of DINO's.

I feel like I'm through the looking glass every time I go to DU, I'll tell you.

LOL. What is wrong with women these days? It seems we no longer know our place!

However, in all fairness, "rips mic from hands of woman constituent" seems a bit overboard. There was no ripping.

True, but he clearly shut her off before she made her point and did it in a manner that was overbearing, IMHO, and LOTS worse than Rick Lazio when he handed that paper to Hillary and supposedly intimidated her!

Holt beat Zimmer by 481 votes. Also noteworthy is this, from wiki: “Redistricting before the 2002 elections made Holt safer, in part by adding much of Trenton.”

I'm not the one that made a sweeping misstatement.

It's a pet peeve of mine. In that sweeping statement, many are tarred with the wrong brush since only well informed Freepers are the ones that read it. It implies that they are idiots.

Saw a commercial in opposition to national health care by C. Everett Koop last evening. Since I am advancing in age,(like all of us) its getting scarier by the day!

Yes they want zombies so they can go forward with their plans to get rid of the non-workers early.

The new Demonrat mantra! Woof, woof, let granny eat dog food...spoof on 'let them eat cake'. obama's war on seniors See the links in post 43-46 and on the last page.

Expanding support for families balancing work with caring for elderly relatives with a $102.5 million Caregiver Initiative adding $52.5 million in funding to Department of Health and Human Services caregiver support programs that provide temporary respite care, counseling, training, and referrals to critical services. The administration says the extra funding will allow nearly 200,000 additional caregivers to be served and 3 million more hours of respite care to be provided. It also adds $50 million to programs that provide transportation help, adult day care, and in-home services, such as aides to help seniors bathe and cook, help which eases the burden for family members and helps seniors stay in their homes.

Even the commie rag Mother Jones is reporting the cut and gut to granny's SS/Medicare.

Well, Rush Holt is one of the few Ph.D holders in Congress. He has a degree in Physics and has worked at both Swarthmore and Princeton. He is much smarter then the commoners and obviously knows what is best for the riff-raff like that constituient who should know better then to lecture him!

Confusing. Holt’s webpage says the Jan 26 meeting was a telephone town hall meeting and has a link to the audio. Nothing on there about this townhall meeting referred to in the article.

If they weren’t trying to f**kover the American people he would have no reason to censor her, would he?

He wouldn’t have a raging constituency, would he?

Scared little squirrel!

It would be just another boring town hall meeting, just as it should be.

I am SO entirely sick and tired of these clearly un-American a-holes.

He would not have taken that mike from me.

He represented the modern American politician and she represented the modern American, perfectly.

Stop letting them walk all over you!

So what could you have done.....Grabbed the microphone which in turn would have looked like you were creating a violent situation, and then security would have escorted you out....Or maybe even have placed you under arrest.....If people do not start seeing truth as it is, and voting these communists out we are in BIG trouble.....

She was on Fox yesterday.

She moved to New Jersey from Canada and knows the Canadian Health Care System. Apparently the Rep said the Health Care Program here won’t be like Canada’s.

Right. Gotcha.

I moved out of Frank Pallone's 6th District to Zimmer's 12th just in time for him to lose to Holt.

It didn't last long as I got redistricted back into the 6th.

I live in PA and work in this guy's district, near Princeton. Every 2 years I see Rush Holt yard signs in practically every million-dollar home I pass on the way to work.

I keep thinking that if this guy's (and Obama's) agenda were ever fully realized, these dupes would be the first ones loaded on the boxcars for the trip to the gulag.

“So what could you have done...”

I would not have let go of the microphone. He would have had to try to yank it from my hand.

Of course, I’m 6’4” and big so he probably wouldn’t have even considered grabbing anything from me, the little commie tick.

I’ve heard a lot of Rush Holt’s radio commercials over the years on WABC 770, WCBS 880 and 1010 WINS. Holt seems like a major dirtbag to me... His ads are probably the most vile and disgusting campaign commercials I’ve ever heard in my life...
