  • Too abbreviated for me to conclude anything ... it IS odd that people would show up at a Town Hall gathering wearing the uniform T-shirts of SEIU.

    Town Halls are for citizens to meet with their Representatives. It is a forum for individual citizens, not a rally for activist groups to invade and apply pressure.

    Since one can clearly see several people in this video, hopefully there will be some follow-up which will bring real facts to light.

    Until then, it is speculative to express an opinion !

  • It's not at all unusual for SEIU to appear at events like this.

    Hard to really know WHAT happened since the video starts with people on the ground. But I see there were arrests, so a jury will sort it out.

  • Read the letter sent out by moveon.org: http://michellemalkin.com/2009/08/07/moveon-sounds-the-nutroots-mob-alarm/  


    They're admitting "We’ve got a plan to fight back against these radical right-wingers. We’ve hired skilled grassroots organizers who are working with thousands of local volunteers to show Congress that ordinary Americans continue to support President Obama’s agenda for change. And we’re building new online tools to track events across the country and make sure MoveOn members turn out at each one."

  • Why does MoveOn need to raise $250,000?! Would that be to cover the CHARTER BUS costs to haul bus loads of ObamaCare minions to these protests in order to "keep the balance" in other words keep out the dissenters?! LOL

  • Obama and the liberals continue to accuse Republicans, conservatives and anyone who disagrees with ObamaCare of "Astroturfing," yet, here we have the "Chief of Community Organizing" instructing liberal groups to ORGANIZE and FIGHT BACK at these rallies!! LOL

    Pot, let me introduce you to my good friend, the kettle! :o)

  • grlyglz there is no way to know what happened before that video started. I agree with gdiamante.


    As for the rambling about MoveOn. I get there emails, and I dont recall getting that one. I wouldn't believe want Makin said if her tongue came notarized.


    but thats besides the point...


    They are well within their rights to dispatch moveon members and canvassers to townhalls and other events to combat the spread of lies about the health care plan.

    Just as Conservatives are allowed to protest an expensive liberal agenda. What are these lies they have said to YOU?  I have been to 2 townhalls/rally's.. Plan on attending 3 more by the end of the month...  Not ONE had racist tones. BOTH have had diverse groups of people.  How many have YOU been to? What have YOU seen LIVE, in person, ACTUALLY? Besides what you see on [perhaps] MSNBC, Huffington Post, or Daily Kos???
