Town Halls Gone WildSunday, August 2, 2009
Here’s a great story on Yahoo about town hall meetings being overrun with disruption from angry protesters and hecklers, and sometimes, the looting politicians even need an escort to get out of the building.
In Bishop’s case, his decision came on the heels of a June 22 event he held in Setauket, N.Y., in which protesters dominated the meeting by shouting criticisms at the congressman for his positions on energy policy, health care and the bailout of the auto industry.
Within an hour of the disruption, police were called in to escort the 59-year-old Democrat — who has held more than 100since he was elected in 2002 — to his car safely.
It seems that most of the targets are Democrats who support and promote Obama’s war on American freedom and free markets. These “don’t tase me, bro” moments may be a pretty good sign of things to come. Thanks to Ken Sturzenacker for the link.
