I just can’t get over how, on the first day the Democrats start packing their Town Hall meetings with union members, violence breaks out.
Kenneth Gladney, 38, a conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don’t tread on me” printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack.
I mean really, who’d a thunk it?
Karen Miracle pushes Barry Osteen, right, who was debating her husband, Garry. “We have the best health care system in the world and I’m completely happy with what we have,” Osteen said.
I do love how the leftist blogs are obtusely describing the altercations atthese meetings but not saying who are the ones doing the pushing and shoving. Why should they give their readers too much information so that those readers could make an informed comment when it is just as easy to let them imagine what actually happen?
So, if you’re going to attend a Town Hall meeting with your elected representative, take a cool temper and a camera.
Me, I get stuck with a state full of cowards who only want to have Telephone Town Hall meetings, where they can control the callers and the questions. Even Reichert (R), who is afraid of getting called on the carpet for his yes vote on the Cap & Tax is doing his via telephone.
Oh well, I gotta go see the gunsmith anyway.
