Drawing on his familys violent past, the Democratic congressman told roughly 75 people gathered at a private health-care forum Saturday morning that opponents of Democrat-backed health-care legislation had gone too far. He cited, as an example, 10,000 signs distributed at a recent Washington protest that read, Bury ObamaCare with Kennedy.
Patrick Kennedy is the last member of his storied family to hold federal office. His father, U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, died one month ago after battling a brain tumor. His uncles, former President John F. Kennedy and former presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, were assassinated.
My familys seen it up close too much with assassinations and violence in political life. Its a terrible thing when people think that in order to get their point across they have to go to the edge of violent rhetoric and attack people personally, Kennedy told the nurses, union officials and AARP members finishing their breakfasts at the invitation-only event in the Providence Marriott hotel. Its fine for people to debate the issue and attack the issue, but when they go and stoop to the level of the vitriolic rhetoric that weve seen this debate turn up, its very, I think, dangerous to the fabric of our country.

Well, protesters are telling you——no obamacare. get it, dude?
The Kennedy family was the original Jersey Girls. They’ve been exploiting JFK’s death in order to advance their liberalism since 1963.
Someday, there won’t be anymore Kennedys in American politics. I sure wish I could be around to see it. It will be a great day.
Maybe this Kennedy can go bug Hugo Chavez to buy health insurance for all the bums who want it.
Looks like “Patches” got his weekend pass from rehab.
We must remember that these are the rantings of (yet another) drunken,drug addled Kennedy.
I don’t think that the debate over healthcare reform will trigger violence, but I would not be surprised if healthcare reform itself causes violence. That may be a few years off, though. Even the Dems are scared to implement healthcare reform immediately.
” My family has skied into trees while drunk killing themselves; we have driven cars off bridges into the sea killing others; we have crashed planes at night into the sea when we were not certified while killing wives and sisters; we have run around our Florida compound raping girls; we’ve had sex with Marilyn Monroe and then had her executed,...so to say that we don’t know violence is silly!”
10,000 posters saying “ Bury Obamacare with kennedy”?
Did he link a source for that?
By their guesstimations of 60-70,ooo peeps there, that would be one in every 6 epople carried that sign. THEY LIE!!!!
The potential “violence” is to grandma when they deny her hip surgey or make her suffer and wait for surgery.
I was at the March on Washington the VAST najority of signs were homemeade. I only spotted one of the Kennedy sgns and I was photographing signs all day.
The sign is rough but so is screwing up a great nation’s healthcare.
Concerning the sign, it no longer seems to be for sale, but it'd be easy to make with almost any standard stencil kit.
Oh, yeah, one more thing, Patrick seems unconcerned that his uncle killed a young woman ~ either out of drunkeness, incompetence, calousness or inattention. Wouldn't trust him to go across the street to get a beer if he was paying!
Compare the participant behavior of the 9/12 rally to the G20. Glaring example of how two different groups communicate their message.
Just a TAD hyperbolic.....
Sorry "Patches" but I just can't hear your pill-popping, drunken bullsh1t...
Robert Bork's America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids...
Ted Kennedy June 23, 1987
Hey Patrick, SHUT THE F*CK UP!
I sure hope so!
Somebody should fix Patches Kennedy up with Amy Winehouse - it’d be a match made in detox.
