And how did our esteemed Congressmen and Senators react? By locking out constituents from the meetings. By calling voters Nazis and mobs. By provoking fights with their constituents as a Carnahan staffer did. By packing the meetings with SEIU union supporters that are exempt by law, from the details in HR3200. They have hypocritically called protesters paid servants for special interests and astroturf. Hmmm, that sounds like the SEIU, the GOVERNMENT WORKER'S union. Who is paying them to show up? Our tax money?
Btw, the SEIU are supporters of HCAN, the lobbying group for Obama care. Here is the steering committee. I don't see too many medical groups or non-partisan groups. It looks like pay back for campaign workers:
Our Steering Committee includes: ACORN, AFL-CIO, AFSCME, AFT, Americans United for Change, Campaign for America’s Future, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Campaign for Community Change, Children’s Defense Fund Action Council, Communications Workers of America, International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace & Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW), MoveOn.org, NAACP, National Council of La Raza, National Education Association, National Women’s Law Center, SEIU, UFCW, USAction, Women's Voices, Women's Vote and Working America.The media is rife with stories about "scary mobs" and "violent citizens egged on by talk radio" and "intimidation." The same representatives that lock out voters and import union thugs lies the next day about just wanting a dialogue with voters. Google Carnahan, union thugs, townhall.
Well, the violence has started. The anger and hatred were finally released. A mob attacked an innocent man.
August 7, 2009
Dear Mr. Hennessy:
I am Kenneth Gladney’s attorney. Kenneth was attacked on the evening of August 6, 2009 at Rep. Russ Carnahan’s town hall meeting in South St. Louis County. I was at the town hall meeting as well and witnessed the events leading up to the attack of Kenneth. Kenneth was approached by an SEIU representative as Kenneth was handing out “Don’t Tread on Me” flags to other conservatives. The SEIU representative demanded to know why a black man was handing out these flags. The SEIU member used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another SEIU member yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him in the head and back. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by one other male SEIU member and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing T-shirts with the SEIU logo.
Kenneth was beaten badly. One assailant fled on foot; three others were arrested. Kenneth was admitted to St. John’s Mercy Medical Center emergency room, where he was treated for his numerous injuries. Kenneth was merely expressing his freedom of speech by handing out the flags. In fact, he merely asked people as they exited the town hall meeting whether they would like a flag. He in no way provoked any argument or altercation, as evidenced by the fact that three assailants were arrested.
The rest is at St. Louis Tea Party. com.
