    From where I sit, I'd say the brownshirts disrupting the town hall meetings are cut from the same cloth as those who stormed the recounts in Florida in 2000. They are not interested in fostering free speech but in preventing it.

    Nobody who's not a Senator or Congressman will be able to keep their private health coverage. That's the nature of fascism, after all. No denying this.

    My party has never had a Congressman, period.

    So you can't refute what I say, so you have to play these completely irrelevant strawman games?

    BTW, are you trying to claim there's not one Republican Congressthing east of the Mississippi and north of the Macon-Dixon Line? What exactly are you saying here?

    Conservatives are men and liberals are little fruity pebbles who put gel in their hair and get beat up by gay bashers.

    This whole thread is pretty much a partisan joke.

    Where is the evidence supporting this silly accusation that this is fake? This is all (including the press secretary) nothing but speculation.

    People protest and it is their right to do so whether you think it is fake or not.

    And congrats to you, sir... For you have just nabbed the coveted hyper-partisan spin of the night award.

    And with that you also get a copy of the leaked conservative memo instructing folks on how to crash and ruin a Townhall meeting by being disruptive assholes.



    Way to make a fake spontaneous uprising feel more...real?

    Whether or not our suspicions (including those of press Sec Gibbs at today's briefing C-SPAN | Capitol Hill, The White House and National Politics) prove to be true, my poll question remains.

    The last option should read: If fake, (operatives proven to be merely "Posing" as concerned citizens while actually being paid money for the purpose of inhibiting free speech) protesters & their masters should be prosecuted.
    How are these protesters that you claim to be fake hindering free speech?

    Are they blocking doors to prevent the opposition from speaking?
    SANTA CRUZ / Military recruiters, confronted by crowd, leave campus job fair / Anti-war protesters at university block doors to building

    Are they throwing pies at people speaking?
    Videos - Free video downloads and streaming video - CNET TV

    Are they hollering off the top of their lungs to prevent others from hearing what someone is saying or trying to intimidate people?
    Protesters shout down Tancredo at UNC-Chapel Hill (OneNewsNow.com)

    Did they harass their offices to cause them to shut down for a little bit?
    Anti-war protesters close down recruiting center - News


    Unless they are actually doing the above things then they are not denying anyone their right to speak.



    What makes them fake? Do you think those who are protesting somehow do not believe a word of what they are saying? Is there a video of these people being paid to protest?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    If his/her rude disagreement is done for the purpose of drowning out the speaker, then it is violating the speaker's First Amendment rights & needs to be stopped by the police & possibly prosecuted if that protester is an operative working for others to stop free speech.

    Pretty simple concept.
