GOP congressman threatens constituent at town hall: Maam, if you yell one more time like that

http://shareblue.com/republican-congressman-threatens-constituent-at-townhall-maam-if-you-keep-yelling-like-that/




It’s becoming a trend. Earlier this month, in response to being called out by angry constituents during a town hall meeting, Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) yelled at one of them to “shut up.”

This time, things got ugly in a hurry for Rep. Andy Harris’s (R-MD) town hall meeting at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, Maryland.

As the Freedom Caucus member presented a Power Point presentation on his views about health care, the crowd booed and jeered him loudly.

At one point, Rep. Harris threatened a woman in the audience, telling her he’d have her thrown out if she didn’t stop yelling:






The crowd was having none of it, as John Fritze of the Baltimore Sun reported:

Rep. Andy Harris to woman in front row of rows hall on Eastern Shore: "If you yell one more time like that..." Crowd goes ballistic.

6. Exactly, every motivation in their being is driven by control.

How did we come to this place we're so many elected officials are more authoritarian than statesmen? (Rhetorical question: the answer is evangelical churches, Fox News, and right wing radio)

7. Bingo the very fragile coal dust encrusted kind

And the "freedom" caucus all needs a first grade civics lesson in the first amendment and also the role of a congressperson to be a check in the executive branch and not its towel boy.
