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.”
