Skip to comments.(NC) Dem Congressman Goes Nuts When Asked if He Supports the “Obama Agenda”; Attacks Students– Video
Posted on 06/14/2010 4:33:42 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot
Here is shocking video of North Carolina Democrat Rep. Bob Etheridge being asked by some students on a public sidewalk in Washington, D.C. if he supports the Obama Agenda. Once he realized the students were asking him that question, he went bonkers. Etheridge hit their camera and then grabbed one of the students by the arm as he repeated over and over Who are you, Who are you? Tell me who you are? The students identified themselves as such, but Etheridge persisted. At one point he then grabbed the student whose arm he had been holding onto and pulled himself up beside himself with his arm wrapped around the student. The student repeatedly asked the Congressman to let go of my arm.
There is no scenario under which this kind of behavior is acceptable. Etheridge represents the 2nd District in North Carolina, and faces a tough re-election battle. This video ought to seal his defeat. Its time for voters to say to Etheridge, Who are you to treat people like this?
Mike Flynn at Big Government has more.

He should be charged with assault.
Holy Cripes....That’s assault...
Who are you? Who are you? Who are you?
LOL...He should be asking Obama that question.
Doo doo doot doot doot
Another Bites the Dust!
I liked one of the comments - ‘Your boss’.
OMG!! If this had been a Republican, he would be in jail, and it would be on the news evry hour!!
Hmmmm.... what does it mean when an elected democrat goes nuts over the acusation of being associated with Obama’s agenda?
I’d have broken either a hand, elbow, or dislocated the sumbitch’s shoulder.
How dare he, indeed.
Bookmarking video for home viewing
And false arrest.
That is battery and CLEARLY the agenda of Obama and the MSM.
Etheridge has the classic look of an alcoholic, and behavior to match.
I am unable to access the video at work, so forgive me if it doesn’t live up to expectations, but it has Ping PO-TEN-TIAL.
>> He should be charged with assault.
That WAS in fact assault, plain and simple. If he weren’t a ‘RAT he would have been arrasted.
And that kid never even provoked him verbally!
Look for this to show up on campaign ads in the very near future.
Downloaded and saved....just in case.
Definitely worth watching later.
What an F’ing asshole. He should be charged with assault.
I think we can be assured this is NOT hitting the 24 hour news cycle. :-\
totally unacceptable......he should have to apologize to his state and retire, he is an elected official on the government dole....
I was thinking the very same thing.
“dismuke” of the New Clarion in 2009 posted a fascinating
explication of liberal mentality and how liberals react
when confronting with persons, events or arguments showing
liberalism is unworkable. The even he discusses is the
notorious Susan Roesgen episode at one of the Tea Parties.
I really have to get up and go out *right now* so that’s
all for now. http://newclarion.com
P.S. he takes as his text a passage from Ayn Rand. IANAL
(I am not a Libertarian or libertaran). The exclusion of
the social group, as noted by e.g. Aristotle, (man is
a politikon zoon) or Genesis (all the nations plural of
the world) shows that Rand neglects an essential. However
dismuke’s post doesn’t involve that.
These commies in charge, are nuts! Rot in jail!
I thought that he sounded and looked like a drunk. He certainly acted irrationally.
It says a lot that the Pubbies aren’t all over this yet, at least not that I have seen. I hope Fox News picks it up.
That kid should of punched him in the mouth.
Here’s how you can contact the “congressman”. Let him know what you think of his assault.
This is assault and he is finished. The student should press charges and go after him. The GOP needs to use this as campaign material. Who is Etheridge’s GOP opponent?
Holy crap! I hope this hits network news (wishful thinking). To the student involed: it’s called 911, buddy. Next time, dial & have the douche arrested.
Another Bites the Dust!
The 2nd District of North Carolina has a special shape so small missteps like this won't have much of an effect on Bob Etheridge... Oh, that small corner of Raleigh that's included, not exactly what you would call a major vacation destination for anyone who likes to keep their wallet, purse or anything else of value...
This just absolutely has to be spread all over the internet! Be a pest about it, and run the risk of being banned at the more genteel forums (y’know, the ones where they desperately try to pretend that everything’s still hunkey-dorey) to get it in front of people.
Hey, the student was just doing 0’s bidding...”Get in their face”. /sarc
“How dare these hooligans question me...”
He should sue the bastard.
It’s on DRUDGE!!! First item in RED!!!
It lives up to expectations. I found myself pointing at the screen and talking to it- lol. “You can’t touch that kid like that!” He grabbed his wrist and then grabbed the back of his neck demanding to know who he was, saying I have a right to know who you are. I’m saying where the hell do you think you live anyway?
I think he is drunk and gay.
SOB touches me or my friends or family like that and I will personally kick his a$$. Typical democrat, I guess. I’m surprised that these kids didn’t beat the crap out of the congressman thug. Probably has his purple SEIU shirt under his suit.
This is what democrats are. NAZI thugs. Nothing more, nothing less.
Makes me think that O’Keefe of ACORN fame has them all a little paranoid. GOOD!
Guess he thought it was Sarah Palin in disguise?
That asshat is drunk as a skunk, and should be arrested for assault, and probably sued.
