Man brings assault rifle to Obama appearance in Pheonix (Update)

UPDATE:  The protester, who refused to give his name, was interviewed by a man carrying a microphone and said, “I am almost always armed.”

The interview, done by Libertarian radio talk show host Ernest Hancock, was staged.

“Absolutely,” Hancock told CNN’s Rick Sanchez Tuesday. “You guys are so easy. What we wanted to do was make sure that people around the country knew that law enforcement in Phoenix, Arizona, protects our rights.” [CNN.com]

Obama in Phoenix today greeted with “angry mobs.”

One protester who didn’t want to give his name was walking around with an assault rifle – in full view.

“I’m exercising my right as an American in Arizona,” he said. “I’m actually totally against healthcare in this way, in this manner, stealing it from people. I don’t think that’s appropriate.”

The man also carried a hand gun on his hip and a round of ammunition in his back pocket, all completely legal.

He said he’s fighting both healthcare and his right to carry a firearm in public.

Let’s see if Chris Matthews or Dear Rachel jump on this one.  A man carrying an assault rifle, a hand gun on his hip, and a round of ammuniation in his back pocket.  Let’s see — why is it I don’t think we will hear too much about it.  I could be wrong.  Update:  Well, I was wrong in a sense.  They did cover it but altered the tape to present the story the way they wanted it to be.  See:  http://hotair.com/archives/2009/08/19/unreal-msnbc-edits-clip-of-man-with-gun-at-obama-rally-to-support-racism-narrative/

We are the mob in Brown Shirts. Be very afraid

Mobs ‘R Us

The week the government turned on the citizens.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claims protesters are “carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, armed with a patch of Astroturf,  “I just want to show you what Astroturf really is,” Reid said to laughter. “They’re taking their cues from talk show hosts, internet rumor mongers, and insurance rackets.”

Harry Reid:  “In spite of the loud, shrill voices trying to interrupt town hall meetings and just throw a monkey wrench into everything, we’re going to be positive and work hard,”  (Maybe someone in the crowd should throw a couple shoes.  That would really be funny, huh?)

Brian Baird D/Washington said he’s using the new system (telephone town halls) because he fears “extremists” may be planning “an ambush” to disrupt his meetings, using methods Baird compared to Nazism.

“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics,” Baird, D-Vancouver, said in a phone interview. “I mean that very seriously.”
