'Brooks Brothers riot alumni' spotted at anti-health rally

'Brooks Brothers riot alumni' spotted at anti-health rally

On November 19, 2000, a funny thing happened in Florida. You may remember this.

An angry mob of conservatives staged a riot inside a Miami-Dade County polling office and managed to shut down the must crucial Bush v. Gore recount in the country.

It was later discovered that some of these individuals were on the Bush recount committees payroll. They were just a few of "at least 750" Republican operatives flown in from around the country on the GOP's dollar

.....................

And wouldn't you know it -- the "Brooks Brothers rioters" are back.

Lo, and behold -- video has now surfaced showing some of the same operatives that helped secure the George W. Bush presidency, marching with a different angry mob from earlier this week.

21. Indeed, havocmom

After January, I kinda took to avoiding discussions out of sheer relief that Chimpy was gone.

I'm starting to get my energies back. :)

13. Most did VERY well--huge promotions within the Bush regime.
Perfidity is rewarded in some circles.

8. I looked at both of those videos
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 12:57 PM by drm604
and neither one says that alumni of the Brooks Brothers riot were physically spotted at health care rallies.

They do say that two of the BB rioters now work for Koch industries, which is a sponsor of groups that are currently encouraging these mobs, so the point stands. The same forces are behind both the fake BB riot and the fake health care mobs, but it's not correct (at least according to these videos) to say that they were spotted as part of the health care mobs.

11. a couple of them sure looked the same, just a few years on them from the 2000 video
My guess is Maddow's staff did the face recognition before she went on air with the story.

15. Thanks for looking 'cause I'm not going
to..but, I did get from the headline that "a couple of mobsters at the Miami voting place in 2000 were seen at Health Insurance Reform Town Hall Meets..mobbing it up". So if that's not the case then it's good to know.

16. But it is still true that some of the same forces were involved in both.
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 01:43 PM by drm604
I just want to be clear that, regardless of who was physically present, I believe the point is the same: Certain corporations and ultra-wealthy individuals are behind both the BB riot and the HC mobs.

I should add - don't be afraid of those links, check them out. They're simply links to pages that have videos of segments of Rachel Maddow's TV show, which is very entertaining.

12. Funny, none of the BBR stooges were ever arrested for doing something illegal.
Disrupting a recount of a national election in a government office is a federal offense.

But hey, IOKIYAR, I guess.

14. Who was the governor of the state in which they were doing their evil work?
All politics is local, and nothing's more local than family.

18. until there is accountability, it will never stop
losing an election is not enough of a penalty for what has been done to our country by a few people who have no regard for the wish of the majority but are only following their own secret agenda.
