Many of the hundreds of protesters said that they had been inspired by Fox News host Glenn Beck and a conservative activist group, according to the St. Petersburg Times:
Instead, hundreds of vocal critics turned out, many of them saying they had been spurred on through the Tampa 912 activist group promoted by conservative radio and television personality Glenn Beck. Others had received e-mails from the Hillsborough Republican party that urged people to speak out against the plan and offered talking points to challenge supporters.
The Times added:
The spectacle at the Children's Board in Ybor City sounded more like a wrestling cage match than a panel discussion on national policy, and it was just the latest example of a health care meeting disrupted by livid protesters.

Most women who oppose Obama don't oppose him based on his race and I for one don't find him attractive at all. I have never dreamt about him other then in nightmares about him destroying our country. The Dems are to blame for trying to rush this health care debacle through when the people don't want it. They promised transparency but that was a lie. They want to force their agenda on us and when we protest they blame us for being upset when we will be affected but they will not.
I am for health care reform and I will have to live with it...How is it the dems fault? They were elected to do a job. Are you saying this is acceptable behavior? Should we have started violent outburst at every Bush event?
