Congressman Dan Lipinski's Town Hall Meeting on November 14th, and the attempt by the Chicago Tea Party Patriots to disrupt the proceedings, including heckling Midge Hough. They don't seem to realize they are merely tools of the Insurance industry, helping the CEOs of Blue Cross/Blue Shield, WellPoint and Humana maintain their Lear Jet lifestyles.

1. Ignorance and stupidity are very ugly.
Very deeply ugly.

Mobs always are ignorant, stupid...and ugly.

3. A little more to augment this


Tea baggers attack family mourning loss of mother/unborn child
If you need any evidence that the tea baggers have no class you need to check out Kristen McQueary's column in the SouthtownStar.

Low Tea Party moment symbolic of muddy week

November 22, 2009
By Kristen McQueary

As a journalist covering Chicago politics, verifying information is like climbing a mountain of sand. With each step you take, the deeper you sink.

Last week while researching claims from a local Tea Party activist, I found myself asking a family for proof that they had lost an unborn grandchild.

The family, Dan and Midge Hough, of Chicago, spoke in favor of health care reform and in support of U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-3rd) at a Nov. 14 town hall meeting in Oak Lawn.

4. This is seriously ugly.
From that article.
Catherina Wojtowicz, of Chicago's Mount Greenwood community, an organizer for a Tea Party splinter group, Chicago Tea Party Patriots, falsely claimed that the Houghs fabricated their story. In an e-mail, she called them operatives of President Barack Obama who "go from event to event and (cry) the same story."

Did Ms Wojtowicz even try to investigate before making this claim against the Houghs? These people are so full of fear and hate that they seem to have lost human compassion.

5. Human garbage.
I've seen too much of it.

Nasty, petty, selfish, shallow, vindictive, insecure, ignorant pieces of human waste. That's nearly 25% of America. They weren't born that way, they were made that way.

6. I knew from the start this was going to be an ugly video-
Whenever you hear a room full of people chanting "USA! USA!" you know you're in the presence of stupidity.

7. The more they do this the more that any remaining real Republicans
will peal off and become independent or Dems. This is cruelty beyond imagination. These people have a desire to mock anyone who has had a tradgedy in their lives. They are the scum of the earth but I bet you they show up at church every Sunday!!

11. This woman actually had the balls and more human dignity in her little finger...
... than the collective group of these mental midgets every will.

Shame on them, and shame on ANYBODY who is THIS WILLFULLY IGNORANT not to have listened.
