Keith Olbermann: “Jail me if you must”

Well, Lord have mercy.

Keith Olbermann threatens civil disobedience in light of “federally-mandated insurance.” “Fine me if you will.  Jail me if you must.” Has he joined the Tea Party movement?

From his program last night:

KEITH OLBERMANN: Health care reform that benefits the industry at the cost of the people is intolerable and there are no moral constructs in which it can be supported. And if still the bill, and this heinous mandate become law, there is yet further reaction required. I call on all those whose conscience urges them to fight to use the only weapon that will left to us if this bill as currently constituted becomes law. We must not buy federally-mandated insurance, if this cheesy counterfeit of reform is all we can buy. No single payer? No sale. No public option? No sale. No Medicare buy-in? No sale.

I am one of the self-insured, albeit by choice. And I hereby pledge that I will not buy this perversion of health-care reform. Pass this at your peril, senators. And sign it at yours, Mr. President. I will not buy this insurance. Brand me a law-breaker if you choose. Fine me if you will. Jail me if you must.

This is getting good.  🙂

Code Red Rally at Upper Senate Park

Here’s some wonderful coverage of the Code Red Rally. Excerpt below:

Thousands of patriots from all over the United States turned out at Code Red Rally held at Upper Senate Park in Washington DC on Tuesday December 15. The main speaker was radio host and FOX News commentator Laura Ingraham with a surprise guest appearance by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Other speakers included Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla) and Jim DeMint (R-SC).

They charged up the crowd who chanted “kill the bill” throughout the event. Following the rally, participants walked across the street to urge their senators to vote against the Democrat’s Health Care Reform Bill that the majority of Americans appose.

It’s worth it to read the accounts of some of the participants who went to the offices of the senators and what was said and what was the reaction.  Also there’s some great pictures and video clips of Laura Ingraham and Michele Bachmann speaking to the crowd.

Thank you all for speaking for me and many others who could not be there.  We are behind you 100%.
