Preceding the president's speech to a gathering of House Democrats, thousands of protesters descended around the Capitol to protest the passage of health care reform. The gathering quickly turned into abusive heckling, as members of Congress passing through Longworth House office building were subjected to epithets and even mild physical abuse.Good to see Klan rallies make a comeback here in 2010, and in Washington DC no less! Personally, this is all a sign of the desperation of a few broke-ass knuckle-draggers that are influenced by wealthy assholes on talk radio (and television) who really could give a shit if any of them have health coverage. Noticeably silent are the Negro Enablers who belong to the Republican party.
A staffer for Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) relayed word to reporters that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-M.D.) had been spit on by a protestor (the protestor was reportedly arrested by Capitol Hill police). Rep. John Lewis (D-G.A.) a hero of the civil rights movement was called a "n----r." And Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was called a "faggot," as protestors shouted at him with deliberately lisp-y screams. Frank, approached in the halls after the president's speech, shrugged off the incident.
But Clyburn was downright incredulous, saying he had not witnessed such treatment since he was leading civil rights protests in South Carolina in the 1960s.
"It was absolutely shocking to me," Clyburn said, in response to a question from the Huffington Post. "Last Monday, this past Monday, I stayed home to meet on the campus of Claflin University where fifty years ago as of last Monday... I led the first demonstrations in South Carolina, the sit ins... And quite frankly I heard some things today I have not heard since that day. I heard people saying things that I have not heard since March 15, 1960 when I was marching to try and get off the back of the bus." (source)
Listen to these bafoons:
Of course to them none of this stuff ever happens and it is all figments of the imagination of White Liberals, and their mentally enslaved Negro followers like me. Um, don't wait for the Republican party higher-ups to condemn this behavior or even a formal apology because this is just democracy in action. Besides, the people who did this shit were all planted by the democratic party anyway.
