Town Halls Gone Wild

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 100 town hall meetings since 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.

    The politicians have finally reached the financial point where they cannot steal any more without impinging painfully on people’s lives. As unemployment grows they will draw nearer to the tipping point of revolution, where the government can neither confidently use force against protesters (because this might provoke a violent backlash) nor safely abstain from force (because leniency might embolden the protesters to make greater demands).

    I was just inspired by a video clip of a Pennsylvania town hall hosted by Arlen Specter in which citizens spoke up strongly against the insane Obama health care ‘solution’. Several of these citizens were acutely aware that government run ‘anything’ poses significant danger to the well being of society. Perhaps there is hope for us yet.

    And of course the msm’s reaction to these genuine spontaneous demonstrations at town halls is that its all an organized Republican effort!. …not grassroots at all, they claim. ..they cannot even conceive of ordinary citizens rising up to protest the loss of their liberties.
    I hope every event these leftist congressmen and women appear at is filled with protesters – the louder the better.
