Note: After you watch this video, find out the answer to this question: Are Republicans Right? No One Leaves The US For Healthcare?

Summary: Cenk plays and breaks down a clip of an angry townhall father. His son has cerebral palsy and he unfortunately thinks that healthcare reform will 'sentence his family to death'. He also claims that goons sent by Nancy Pelosi came to threaten his family.

Also, Check Out These 5 Clips You May Have Missed:

1)-Does God Want Healthcare Reform? (Religious Right Weighs In)

2)-The Last Gasp of the Angry White Man

3)-Taxpayer Funded Abstinence Rally (w/ Cheerleaders?)

4)-Pat Buchanan is a Crazy Old Man

5)-Townhallers Harass (R) Cong., He Tells Them To Turn Off Glenn Beck! (Yoda Bonus)

1. Of course Fox doesn't stop him
He's saying exactly what Fox is saying. As a matter of fact, I think Republicans have hope. Obama wants to cover mental health, so that would cover ALL Repukes.

2. Part of the coordinated campaign...
...is to gin up the idea that our side is sending "thugs" out -- like the right winger who supposedly was knocked to the ground and beaten, and like this man who claims a threat was made to his family.

I do not believe him for one second.

If he was truly concerned about his son, then he would have asked questions in a way that would have allowed answers.

The man is just another storm trooper for the right.

3. I don't believe for one second that anyone from Pelosi's office or any other office threatened him.
There is no reason to believe anything these people say. They don't have enough sense to think for themselves in matters such as health care, so why in the world would I think they're thinking for themselves now? This is just more made-up nonsense.

4. This is a textbook GOP response.
Once the Dems finally grew more of a spine and started to get the message out about the truth behind the astroturf "movement"... the GOP responded with the "left-wing thuggery" meme. Heavily promoted (if not totally manufactured), of course by Fox news.

5. Someone has been yelling fire in a crowded theater
if you ask me, to stir up these poor deluded fools, like this. That kid is most likely on Social security disability and has access to a Medicaid plan. His dragging that poor helpless young man around like a movie prop, is reprehensible. It's as gross as Palin dragging, poor, little, Trigg into this charade. I'll give the Pukes this, the bastards are organized, Notice we haven't seen KKK or Cheney around spookin' up the TV set. Are there no laws about outright lying, and deceiving, and stirring folks up into riot mode that makes this Program of Prevarication, wrong or illegal? They need a little spot behind the building surrounded with barricades as the free speech, zone, just like we were granted for Bushitler's speeches.


Seems like all any of those Batshit Crazy Fabricators need is 2 minutes on Facebook or Faux and they are allowed to reframe the debate with terms like 'death panel' and 'denying all human rights to developmentally challenged Americans', and 'rationed care'.....they make me sick!!!!!!

7. As a mother of an adult daughter who is much more handicapped
Edited on Tue Aug-11-09 03:49 PM by jwirr
than that adult son I call him an outright liar. His son is eligible for Social Security Disability and Medicare as well as Medicaid if they are poor. He has been eligible for Social Security since FDR included disabled children under their parents coverage. This man should be ashamed of himself. Or he is just plain an idiot.

I blame Fox mostly because they are milking this for all they can get.

11. What a sickening asshole.He's used his son his whole life to brow beat others
I've worked with many a child with cerebral palsey and this man is like so many others who punish all around them for the cross they feel they've been forced to bear. God do I know assholes like this taking his anger out on one representative as if it were all his fault...mis informed, threatening and stupid too. Fuck you and yes I'll say it to his face because he simply is not told this enough.

13. It's going to be very sad
when this poor man shoots someone that knocks on his door. The Fox news idiots know he's got it all wrong and will do nothing to set him straight. Doesn't that make them sort of complicit in this? Like seeing an accident about to happen and just sitting back to watch?

When I hear something that's completely absurd, common sense kicks in and tells me it's absurd. Why are these nuts so ready to believe the US is getting ready to euthanize them?
