Health Care Opponent Calls for Town Hall Violence via Twitter
Source: The Raw Story

Update: SEIU gets phone call threatening to teach union officials a thing or two about the Second Amendment

Brian Beutler reported at Talking Points Memo on Friday that a health care protester in New Mexico had been encouraging those following him on Twitter to bring their guns to town hall meetings and use them if provoked.

If ACORN/SEIU attends these meetings for disruptive purposes, and you have a license to carry.carry, Scott Oskay wrote in one tweet. In another, he suggested, Stop being peaceful, and hurt them. Badly.

The Service Employees Industrial Union (SEIU) appears to be the latest bogeyman for the anti-health care protesters. Conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, for example, claimed on Friday that SEIU thugs rolled up their sleeves and attacked a black conservative protester in St. Louis.

1. I guess if you come to quietly listen
and not scream and shout you are being disruptive.

Along the lines of "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out."

You see, that's the down side to disruption as a strategy--you COULD be disrupted BACK.
