4. More like the "No! Nothing! Party" . . .
You can almost hear them around their kitchen tables:

"How dare those democRATS show me compassion and empathy! Why. . . those bastards are trying to help me! NO! I want Nothing! Leave me to my misery . . ."

6. Lynch Mob -- What It's Really All About
Lynch Mob Town MAULS: Swastikas, Death Threats, Tears Its All About The BLACK MAN in The White House!





08 August 2009

The McCain/Palin Lynch Mobs are now BIRTHERS, DEATHERS, TEA-BAGGERS and CRIMINAL HOODLUMS threatening to MAUL Democratic lawmakers who dare lecture them on whats good for them Healthcare Reform. Swastikas and other symbols emblematic of NAZI Germany are being flaunted at town hall meetings to intimidate and disrupt civil discussions.

Its NOT about healthcare, its all about The Man in The White House Barack Obama, a black man. Healthcare is just a vehicle with which to transport the hate!

10. Fighting the GOP Mobs: Progressives, Labor Ramp Up Grassroots Response
Fighting the GOP Mobs: Progressives, Labor Ramp Up Grassroots Response

Art Levine.Contributing editor of The Washington Monthly
August 7, 2009

With lobbyist-backed GOP mobs working to shut down town hall meetings on health reform with members of Congress, labor and progressive groups are fighting back on several fronts. The orchestrated mob scenes have already led to reported death threats against at least one congressman and new outbreaks of violence.

One result of all this is that the voices of most Americans, who, polls show, favor a public health option, aren't being heard. In some ways, progressives have become the new "Silent Majority" in the health care debate, as I explore in a piece at the new labor-related blog of In These Times.

Yet in Tampa last evening, the media attention was focused on angry protesters who couldn't get into a meeting room to hear Rep. Kathy Castor, and began banging on walls and screaming "Tyranny!" As Think Progress headlined the incident: " Inspired By Glenn Beck, Protesters Overwhelm Town Hall Meeting With 'Cat Calls' And 'Banging On Windows'."

Progressives are facing well-coordinated organizing and propaganda efforts by corporate front groups spurring such protests, abetted by conservative and even mainstream media outlets (via Media Matters for America):
